KKS Special Release Hop – Going Places!

Welcome to the release of Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps exclusive Moonlight Whispers stamp set!  If you’ve just popped in here, you may want to start at the beginning of the hop HERE.  If you’ve just come from Amanda, then you’re right on track.

GOING PLACES is the first of our special Krafty Klubhouse Kits.  (There will be a new one every few months.)  There is no club to join. Anyone, anywhere can purchase the set, but only from the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps shop.

How fun is this motorcycle?  :)

I colored with Copics and used {Fabulous} new paper from Simple Stories.

Going Places features three special edition stamps designed by Annie Rodrigue plus four coordinating sentiment stamps. These images will not be sold individually, but only as the complete set.  Along with the set, you will also receive a special coupon code for 20% OFF of your next online order.  :)

So let’s get hoppin’, and be sure to leave some love at each and every stop because one lucky random stamper will WIN the new set!

The stamp set is available right now, right HERE.  But first, I hope you’ll hop on over to your next stop which is with my sweet friend, KERRY!

Thanks for stopping by!  (I’ll be back tomorrow with my favorite of the new images from the set!)  :)

MFT Previews, Day 3 – I Owe You BIG Time

It’s Day 3 of April previews with My Favorite Things!

Today we’re previewing Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries and Big Greetings.

I’ve used Big Greetings along with Circle STAX, Fishtail Flags STAX and Royal Leaves Die-namics.  (I’ll show you in a minute an easy way to mat the fishtails.) The layout is an older Mojo Monday sketch (#214).

Here’s a closer peek at the Royal Leaves.  I love the embossing.  (This is with one pass through my Cuttlebug.)

I used one more matted Fishtail Flag on the inside along with a sentiment from Thanks a Bunch.

Here’s how I VERY easily matted my Fishtail Flags.

I wanted to use the die on the right.  As you can see, there’s a bit of a difference between the various sizes.  A little too much (for me) if I’d like to mat my flag.

So I die-cut two pieces, one from the patterned paper and one of the mat I wanted to use.

Using the “embossed” edges as a guide, remove the left and right sides of the patterned flag.

Layer and determine the desired length.  There is no need to trim or change the fishtail ends of the flags.  By removing a bit from each side of the top piece, you retain the perfectly cut flagged ends.

Finished.  :)
