October Release Day 2 - EVANGELINE ANGEL


Welcome back to Day TWO of our October Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
Did you love yesterday's peek?? So beautiful, right?! Well then you're going to love today's peek too because we've got another gorgeous ANGEL! It's EVANGELINE ANGEL!


This adorable new stamp set comes with one large main image and three fabby sentiments!!

I chuckled when I saw this stamp for the first time. Some of you may know the comedy show Mrs. Brown's Boys is - it features a family in Dublin and revolves around the matriarch of the family "Mrs. Brown".  In one episode she gets a mechanical tree and ends up at the top whipping around uncontrollably. Kinds like the angel on the top here. I love this to bits.

I went with the more traditional route with my colours and stayed with the gold, red and green base but added some fun coloured lights on the tree.


All of the Krafty Krew design team members and Special Krafty Guests listed below have lots of sweet designs to share with you today featuring the EVANGELINE ANGEL stamp set! Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop EACH DAY of the peeks this week!

October Release Day 1 - ANGELICA ANGEL


Welcome to Day ONE of our October Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We hope to get you in the holiday mood this week with four days of magical stamp sets! Are you ready to deck the halls and spread Christmas cheer?  Today we have our first ethereal stamp set (there *might* be another one tomorrow) and it's called ANGELICA ANGEL!


This gorgeous clear stamp set features a sweet, lovely angel with her birdie friend plus three coordinating sentiments!

I went and challenged myself with this image and did the no lines technique. I think I did pretty well with her. I wanted a different palette than the traditional red so I went with a cute blue dress. I paired the finished image with a more vintage style paper. On the paper you will notice I used Bo Bunny glitter paste and a swirly stencil to add a bit more dimension to the paper.  I have a side view where you can see the glitter a bit better below.

I wanted to include the awesome sentiment (one of my fav xmas songs, btw.) so I made a little scroll. I cut the paper to the width I needed and kept the top and bottom a little longer so I could roll the ends up.  Over all I loved how this card came out.


Be sure to hop around to the different blog links below as our Krafty design team members and guests have lots of creations to share with you today featuring the ANGELICA ANGEL stamp set! Be sure to leave a comment at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop EACH DAY of the peeks this week!!! Woohooooooooo!
Plus we're doing a GIVEAWAY of the ENTIRE release on the Krafty Friends facebook page!

Did you know that October marks EIGHT YEARS of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps??! Yep! It's our ANNIVERSARY!! And we are celebrating with lots of fabulous specials, prizes and giveaways! Be sure to join our Krafty Friends facebook page to keep up with all the fun stuff!

Saturday Challenge - Holiday Card



Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

I get to host this Saturday too!!! Woo Hoo!!!
The challenge this Saturday is to create a Holiday card....
it can be any holiday or a day you deem a holiday (like a spa day lol)

I chose to play with YOU'RE NIFTY and do a really cool valentines/love card.

a little something different to the card below.
