August 2017 Release Hop with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!



Today we are celebrating the release of the three new August sets at  Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

What better way to celebrate than with a fun hop around the design team blogs to check them all out in action! Grab a nice hot beverage, sit back and relax while you hop around and enjoy all the amazing creations...we even have some wonderfully talented guests joining in the fun! :)
The three sets you will see today are: 
  1. HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!
  2. TROLL TROUBLE!
  3. YOU'RE A HOOT!
The new sets are available individually BUT if you HAVE to have it ALL, we also have our August Gimme Kimmies Kit which includes all THREE of the new sets together and at a discount, but only for a limited time. 

The full hop list will be included at the end of my post.

My hop card features a combination of stamps from the Happy Fall Y'all set. The puppy and kitty are actually in groups of three, but I selectively inked one of each furry pal to join Lulu for my focal image. They were coloured with Copics and then paired with some pretty Simple Stories papers. 



Here's a look at the full set:

Happy hopping and happy shopping ;)

This set includes two adorable trolls and 4 coordinating sentiments. 

You will see this set in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs today. The full hop list will be at the end of my post...be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!

All THREE of the new August clear stamp sets will be released on Saturday afternoon. Be sure to join us at the LIVE Online Release Facebook Party beginning at 2pm EST. Come join us to help celebrate the new release, check out lots of krafty kreations, have a chance to win some prizes and hang out with all our krafty friends. Hope to see you there!

For my card today, I inked up the boy troll in Memento Desert Sand and stamped him on Neenah paper. I coloured the troll with Copics and created a super easy background with Distress Oxide inks...Kimmie let me play with her set of inks when I was at her house recently for a krafty day! Confession: I promptly ordered myself a set. ;)

For my card today, I chose to create a scene using three of the stamps from Happy Fall Y'all. With the help of some masks, I combined the wagon, pumpkins and apple basket. The images were stamped on Mi Tientes pastel paper in Memento Desert Sand. The scene was coloured with Polychromos coloured pencils blended with gamsol.
