Out of this World




I created the background with Alcohol inks and added sequins.  These are the sequins in the Kraftin Kimmie Store!  I used the Beautiful Blues and Poppin Purples.

I colored the little monster with my copics:
Blue: B29, B26, B24 and B21
Mouth and Tonge: E04 and R20
Plant: BV17, BV13 and BV11 (I also took a Copic multi-liner and extended the planet down, so it would be larger.)

I stamped the stars from the set in archival ink to remove the alcohol ink and then I stamped again in Yummy Yellow Krafty Kolours ink.


All the Krafty Design Team members listed below have lots of super sweet creations to share with you today featuring the OUT OF THIS WORLD 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 shop!

This totally BOO-tiful set by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen is absolutely amazing! It features lots of halloweenie solid images which are PERFECT for using with our brand NEW Hybrid INKS!!!

 I used Spooky Sillouettes and Krafty Kolours ink


I masked off the sheet and left a circle and inked it with Yummy Yellow and around the edges Pumpkin Patch. 



Then I masked off the moon and inked Mossy Meadow, Purple Petunia and Purple Pansy.


Finally I stamped the Spooky Silhouettes in Wicked  Black.

I think that it is funny that the moon looks orange until you add the purple and then it looks yellow with just a hint of orange around the edges.

I finished this card off with some pattern paper, a tombstone border and a glittery bat button.

Kraftin Kimmie August Sneak Peek Day 1 - Haunted House

Welcome, welcome, welcome!  Today we are kickin' off our AUGUST Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We've got a new background stamp set to share with you today! This super creepy set is from artist Emilie Goulet and it's our new HAUNTED HOUSE!


This fabulous image was included in our Halloween Krafty Kit along with THREE BRAND NEW Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks!!! The set features one large main image that is almost 4"x4" in size! It can be used as the focal point of your creation or in combination with lots of other spooktacular stamps!
The gorgeous new Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks we are introducing this month are Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Patch and Purple Petunia!! You can get them in large ink pads, mini cubes and also refills!! They go perfectly with this release!!

Background featuring the Krafty Kolours reinkers



I brayerd out a layer of hand sanitizer and then added drops of Krafty Kolours reinker in Wicked Black, Purple Petunia, Mossy Meadow, Pumpink patch and Yummy Yellow.  I then brayerd the colors together and placed a piece of white cardstock on top.  I then pressed down on the back of the paper to pull all the ink into the paper.


I did this a few times without cleaning my Gel Plate so that the later prints were more distressed.


I picked the final print, for my haunted background.


I added the haunted house on top of the die cut embossed fence (highlighted embossing with Marvelous Mocha KK ink).

I colored the Haunted house with Copics:
Black: W9, w7, W5 and W3
