Krafty Komeback


There's so much going on this weekend at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and we can't wait to share it all with YOU!
As you know, lots of our rubber stamp sets have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well, we've decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of your faves in clear! And today we're announcing the first one!
We at KKS, along with many others, are huge fans of Gilmore Girls! And to celebrate the revival coming out this weekend we're giving one of our awesome coffee stamp sets a Krafty Komeback!!!
It's COFFEE & FRIENDS!!


You might remember this set from a few years ago with these two fabulous friends, sisters, mother/daughter having a chat over some rather large mugs of a hot beverage! I've also changed up the sentiments and you may recognize some a couple of them from GG! The set is NOW available in the shop!


The Krafty Krew design team members listed below have new samples to share with you featuring the Coffee & Friends stamp set! Be sure to hop around and check it out in action!

WOW!!! Can you believe it is Wednesday already and so close to December...YIKES!!!!

How did you all enjoy the release last week? Aren't the stamps fantastic!!! I wanted to play with Annie's Betsy Booklover today. I choose to do more muted colors and used a line by Carta Bella called Old World Travel. This line really does remind me of old books with the antique look of the papers. I brightened it up with some teal, twine and pearls.

We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until November 29th at midnight! At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!!! What do you think.....wanna WIN?? Let's see your krafty stuff!!

How can you not love these two little guys. Sometimes I wish as adults we could still do this, except I think my fort would be built out of couch cushions. I used paper by Simple Stories called So Rad as it had more a male colour scheme. I also used their enamel dots and some ribbon I had in my stash.


You will get to see ALL of the new sets in action as you sit back and enjoy the hop! Then head on over to the Krafty Shop because ALL of the new stamp sets will be available this afternoon after our LIVE Online Release Party!!
