KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH!!!

We've got some super exciting NEWS to share with you today! You may have heard that we've been working on something top secret for the last few months and it's FINALLY time that we can share it with everyone! Today we are introducing you to Krafty Kolours Inks by Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!
These new inks are a Hybrid ink that combines the best of both dye ink and pigment ink!
 
 
 
- These beauties are acid free, archival and non-fading!
- This ink dries almost instantly on paper and non-porous surfaces and requires a heat set on glossy surfaces and fabric.
- They have a raised felt pad that let you stamp any size stamp!
- They give a crisp, bright, non-bleeding impression!
- They come in full sized pads, mini cubes and ink refills!
With these inks you can ink directly, sponge, stencil, water colour, you can do all sorts of techniques with them and the Krafty Kolours Inks are safe to use with pencils and alcohol based markers!
Today we are having a big Launch Party over on the Krafty Friends Facebook page with the Krafty Girls and Special Krafty Guests sharing information about the new products, sharing tons of new projects, live videos, YouTube videos, we're doing giveaways, challenges and lots more!
You'll be able to purchase all the large ink pads, mini cubes and refills individually OR in sets at a small discount and there are TWO brand NEW stamp sets that are from the May release that will ONLY be released as part of the special kits!
We also have amazing coordinating Bazzill Bling cardstocks to match the coloured inks and you'll be able to scoop those up as well!
So be sure to pop into the group today or hang out with us for all the fun all day long! 
 

Hi there!  I had so much fun creating this background using the brand new Krafty Kolours Inks.  I have a video posted on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps group on YouTube, showing how I achieved this look on glossy card stock.  I hope you'll check it out and give it a try!  The stamp used is called Mermaid Friends.  To finish the card I added a few sequins.

Here's another card I did using the inks and the new stamp set Beautiful Blooms. 


The inks give such beautiful colours!  I love how this one turned out!  Again I added a few sequins.  There are so many fun techniques you can use with these inks.....all you need is your imagination!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!

Hello and welcome to another Anything Goes challenge! For my card this week I am featuring the stamp set Sky's The Limit! to make a boys birthday card.  I decided to colour the image with Polychromos Pencils.  I sponged on the sky using Distress Oxides.  The colours I used are Fossilized Amber, Salty Ocean, Broken China.  I then cut the image out and glued it down onto the sky background.  The papers used are from the Carta Bella - Toy Box paper pad.  The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder.  I used Doodlebug enamel dots to finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!
