Krafty Challenge - Emboss it!

Welcome back to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!  This week our hostess is SANDIE and her challenge is Heat or Dry Embossing!  So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp that features either heat embossing or dry embossing! Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we'd LOVE to see your KKS designs. We hope you can play along for your chance to WIN some Kraftin' Kimmie rubber!

Since it is the season, I pulled out my Spring Trinkets set and decided to knock a Mother's Day card off my list!  Although you can't tell well from my picture - the trinket is actually stamped in Bamboo Leaves Memento ink as well as Versamark, and then has clear embossing powder over top.  In real life it's all shiny and glossy - but that doesn't seem to be showing in the picture.  I mounted it on a circle and a paper doily and then onto some Doodlebug paper.  This card has to go in the mail, so I wanted to keep it pretty flat. 

Don't forget....this is your last chance to scoop up our April Gimme Kimmies Kits! ALSO this weekend's Frugal Friday Specials are available.....six stamps/sets on for 30-50% OFF!! AND we'll be saying goodbye to some of the highly requested Retired stamps soon!

Check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls featuring this week's challenge!! If you join us and play along, you could WIN a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp!!!

Happy kraftin'!

Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks - BFF Trinkets!

We are kicking off the *New* APRIL Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and of course we're starting off with new TRINKETS.  Today we’d like to introduce you to an awesome new set of ….BFF TRINKETS!

These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall!! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting.  This month we are releasing the BFF Trinkets set which includes EIGHT trinkets in each set with four of each size and they come as both positive and negative images, so you can use your black or brown ink with the positive stamps and use your coloured inks with the negative ones!! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber. They're just PERFECT for all your friendly creations!

Today we have lots of inspiration from the Krafty Girls, so hop around....and be sure to comment at each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN the new BFF TRINKETS set!  {All of this week's winners will be announced at the online party on Sunday afternoon!}

I love how easy it is to make up some cute packaging with trinket stamps.  I had this cute little candy window bag around and decided to fancy it up with a BFF trinket matted a couple of times and some washi tape!  Easy peasy!
