A Very Spooktacular Blog Hop...

Today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new spoooooooooky August images! As you’ve seen over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, Annie Rodrigue has created some super cute and creepy designs! There are eight images in the complete set and one of them is a very special one that we have created from Annie’s original painting, Batty Princess!

And Steven Leary is back with Miles the Mouse and his ghoulfriend, Maisie along with some new fun characters! They are having a lot of trick or treatin’ fun and you’ll get to check them all out in today’s August release day KRAFTY HOP!!

If you arrived here via my great friends and rediculously talented Krafty gals Melanie & Ainsleigh, you're in the right spot! If you just happened to pop by and want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available! OH and did we mention? Each and every order placed this week, will be entered into a draw?? One lucky customer will win a 5x7 print of Annie’s Batty Princess!!

Also we’re doing something new this month!! For those of you who just HAVE to have all the new images, we’ve got the perfect thing for you! It’s called the ‘Gimme Kimmies Kit’!!! Instead of clicking on each image that you’d like, you only have to click once to pick up a Gimme Kimmies Kit AND it’s at a discounted price!! What could be better???
Here's my (pocket) card:


Meet Mitzi the Mummy! Let me tell you, she has to be one of my very favourite images to colour so far! I had sooo much fun. I know I always say that but its true! I used my copics and then added some shading with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I loved trying to make her look all bruised, bloodshot and gorey! (If you're interested, my skin colours were E0000, 000, 00 & BV000 - 04) I couldn't resist adding some black stickles to her old grey brittle mummy hair. I used lots of Tim Holtz distress inks and tools to rough up the edges. I picked up a whole bundle of that green gauzy looking yarn stuff (for lack of a better description) from my lss The Paper Pickle! They always have such funky ribbons, I couldn't resist this stuff! This card was alot of fun to do and have to give a little shout out to my mom for all her help and creativity!

So don't forget to swing by the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop to get your hands on these 'must have's' for Halloween! They are now available for purchase, get them now before they're gone!

Your next stop is the super talented krafty guest Kerry! Have a great time hopping along today! Thanks for stopping by!
