Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Preview: Day Four - You're A Scream (plus challenge)

Welcome back to day FOUR of our August previews for Kraftin' Kimmie StampsI am a wee bit excited about today's preview. 

Today we are featuring a fun set by Cheryl Grant called YOU'RE A SCREAM. These stamps are sweet, cute and a perfect way to complement those fun Halloween cards and projects.

Since it's Saturday and a release preview day, we are also excited to present a new ANYTHING GOES challenge. Create a new project (card, scrapbook page or altered item) and share it with us on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blogor on our Krafty Friends Facebook page. All stamps are welcome, however if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp you will double your chance for the weekly prize of a $10 gift certificate to use in the shop.

I created a fun treat box featuring Lexi the cute spider girl! This is the same dimensions as the coffee (k-cup box) I made (here).

To create the background for my stamped image, I used masking paper and my Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Squeeze Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot). It does take a bit of time with the masking, but I love how this turned out, so I think it was worth it. There are so many fun ways to showcase your image.

This box measures 5 3/4 inches square. The cardstock for the base of your box will measure at 9 1/4 inches square. Score at 1 3/4 on all sides. The lid will be 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch large than the base size with the same score at 1 3/4 inches on all sides). To see how to create a box, you can find a tutorial (here) for making a box for note cards.

Now it's time for your to hop along and check out all of the fabulous projects from the other Krafty Girls and our amazing Guests. Leave a comment on each of the blogs as you hop along. There will be one lucky winner randomly drawn from the preview comments this week to WIN some Krafty $ to spend in the KKS store

All of the August release stamps will be available Saturday night after the release party!

Join Kimmie, the Krafty Girls, Guests and our Krafty friends as we party and celebrate the August release. The party will be on the Facebook events page (here) on Saturday August 8th at 6:00 pm (EST). Hope to see you there.
