We are kicking off the *New* JANUARY Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and first off, we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful new set of Trinkets!!! We are very excited to share with you our GORGEOUS….HANDMADE TRINKETS!!

There are SIX fantastic stamps featuring images from our artists that you can use for the backs of your cards, for gift cards, altered items and all those baked goods you plan on giving out!! *wink* 

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 Handmade Trinkets set which includes SIX trinkets in each set PLUS two tiny little copyright stamps so that you can stamp them in a tiny little obscure spot on your creations if you want! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber.

I gotta say....we love our TRINKET stamps, but we all absolutely ooohed and aaahed when these were unveiled!!! 

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 HANDMADE TRINKETS set!!! {All of this week's winners will be announced at the online party on Saturday night!}

I decided to make a gift card holder for an iTunes gift card for this cute little trinket!  
You can find the tutorial on how to make these gift card holders right HERE on my blog.  
I colored the trinket with copics and cut him out with a 1 3/4" circle punch.  I then used a 2" circle punch to mat the trinket with Bazzill Card Shoppe wax lips CS.   The PP is from the Fancy Pants Designs "Little Sport" 6x6 paper pad.   I added some PTI saddle stitch ribbon.
