"Stash the Booty" at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Whew! It's been a busy week for the Krafty Girls with all the previews! Have you seen them?? We started the sneak peeks on Thursday for the upcoming February release for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Yup, only ONE MORE SLEEP stampers...we'll be having a blog hop tomorrow to celebrate the release day!

Saturday, of course, marks a new challenge on Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog. Now, when we were given the images for this next release, the wheels started turning in my head! I know I just hosted the challenge a couple of weeks back, but Annie's new pirate images inspired me with another topic, so Kimmie graciously allowed me host again! This week's challenge is called "Stash The Booty!!"...pretty appropriate with the whole pirate theme, huh?? Yeah, I have my clever moments! lol So, I am asking you to incorporate something "hidden" on your project this week. We all know that pirates are infamous for hiding treasure...or trying to find another pirate's stash!

I used "Cutthroat Lizzie" on my card today. Sometimes, I like to pretend that I look like this. lol I stamped Lizzie on Neenah paper and coloured her with Copic markers.



So, where's the booty on this card?? See that little treasure chest (an accessory stamp for the February release) Lizzie is guarding? Well, it conceals a small recessed window in which you will find some treasure...the chest pivots open on one of the brads to reveal the booty! Um, don't tell my daughter that I raided her jewelry box for this cross neclace, ok? lol. So, you can actually use a card like this to double as your gift packaging.


I cannot wait to see what you come up with for this challenge! I had a lot of fun with it, and hope you will too! So, get busy and "Stash The Booty"...you could be the winner of "Cutthroat Lizzie" from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. But remember...you MUST use a Kraftin' Kimmie image to be eligable for the prize! Just link up your project on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog!



Now, don't get so busy that you forget to come back tomorrow!! It's release day, and all the images you've been seeing over the past few days will be available for purchase!! Join us for the February Release Blog Hop...Kimmie has some special guests lined up for the hop too!

Tomorrow, I will be showing you a card featuring two other pirates from the Moonlight Whispers collection. One of these pirates is Alicia the Strawberry Pirate. If you have been checking out our sneak peeks, you will know that Kimmie has a special 5x7 print of Alicia by artist Annie Rodrigue. Alicia is based on an original piece by Annie, and word has it there are more to come!!

Don't miss out stampers!
Blessings,

Melanie
