May Previews at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps: Day 1!


Hello, good people of Blogland!  Did you think I got lost trying to find my way back to The Ink Trap?  It sure does seem that way.  Truth is, the clock is ticking and we have less than 2-weeks to finalize things with the sale of our house and the purchase of our next house, pack up all of our belongings, and get moved.  I am feeling the pressure, especially when I am scrambling with those last minute details and the packing, and my husband is sitting back saying "Don't stress, we have plenty of time." Just that statement alone causes my stress to go through the roof.  Folks who know me, know that this is not an exaggeration.  I am a natural born worrier...yes, you read that right...I said "worrier" not "warrior".  The townhouse was appraised on Monday and all I could think was "What if it appraises lower than what the buyers are financing and the bank denies their loan"?  "What if I have to unpack the 500 boxes I have already packed and put everything back"?  "What if we have to live in this tiny townhouse forever"?  Oy vey!  Luckily that didn't happen.  It appraised fine.  PHEW!  Now, time to worry about the next item on the list...the inspection.  Heaven help me.  If I make it through this entire process, I am sure my hair will be completely white and I will have wrinkles on top of my wrinkles.  Double oy vey!

Okay, you did not stop by to offer me a cheese plate to go with my whine, so I'll move along now.  What you're here to see is a preview of a new line of stamps offered at Kraftin' Kimmie.  Let me introduce Trinkets!  These are stylish sentiment stamps designed by our incredibly talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall.  They are fantastic for creating beautiful, quick and easy cards.  Layer them on interesting papers and die cuts to make them the focal point of your paper creation or add them to one of the fabulous images available in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps shop.  Super versatile!  I can already tell that I will be using these  little gems A LOT!  And the best part...they fit inside of a 1 3/4" or 1 3/8" circle punch!  It doesn't get any easier than that!

I used my circle nesties for my card and added them to a fancy die cut.  I also embossed large dots onto a black piece of kraft resist paper to create some texture.  This card came together really fast.  I'll be making more of these to keep on hand.  

This is release week, so be sure to leave comments on all of the Krafty Girl's blogs today and Kimmie will randomly select a winner to receive a set of these wonderful sentiments.  Look for these in the shop on Sunday available for purchase.  

Come back tomorrow and we'll have a little fun with Lulu ;D  Until then, stay krafty!
