Today begins the sneak peek sof the Kraftin' Kimmie December 2012 Release! We've got lot of amazing new stuff for our final release of 2012!! 

To kick off the sneak peeks, we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful new set of Trinkets!!! We are very excited to share with you our GORGEOUS….CIRCUS TRINKETS!!! 

What a FUN set of awesome new stamps....and I don't suppose it's going to be too hard to figure out what theme one of the artists worked with this month, huh?? 

These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall!! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting!!! This month we are releasing the CIRCUS Trinkets set which includes EIGHT trinkets in each set with four of each size and they come as both positive and negative images, so you can use your black or brown ink with the positive stamps and use your colored inks with the negative ones!! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber.

A lot of the Krafty Girls are cardmakers and we have found these to be such a quick and easy way to add a sentiment to our creations or to use as the focal point on your cards! They are also perfect for your Smashbook pages and your scrapbook pages, not to mention your altered items and tags!! No stamper's stash is complete without them! 

Today we have awesome samples that the Krafty Girls have put together for you....and be sure to comment on each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN the new CIRCUS TRINKETS set!!! {And just WAIT 'til you see how they combine with our other NEW December stamps!!!}

The circus comes to our town every year so when I saw these new Circus Trinkets, I immediately thought about making some cute treat bags to give to my kids and their friends when we go!

I used some Bazzill Card Shoppe wax lips, marshmallow, and licorice twist CS.  I stamped the trinket twice on marshmallow CS......once in Momento black ink and once in A Muse Studio cherry ink.  I then cut then red tent out and paper pieced it over the black tent.  I cut the trinket out with a 1.75" circle punch and then layered it over a black 2" scallop circle die cut.  I popped that up with foam dimensionals and layer that over the Verve Stamps Classy Label die cut.  I added a couple of silver brads.   The treat topper is 4.75" x 4" and score on the 2" line.  I filled the treat bags with  Cracker Jacks and adhered the treat topper over the sealed bags.  Cute, huh?
