Final Kraftin' Kimmie Spring Tea Party Stamp Kit Preview...and a Challenge too!!

Ok, that might be my longest title ever for a post! lol Today, the Krafty Girls are introducing you to the final main image from Kraftin' Kimmie's Spring Tea Party Stamp Kit! All week long, we've been showing you projects made with the other four cast members...Nadine, Giselle, Henri and Lisette. Today, you will meet "Gabrielle"!! Now, for the followers of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog, you already know that Saturdays are the day we post our weekly challenge...don't despair, we still have a challenge for you!! lol The Krafty Girls are using "Gabrielle" as our image for the challenge!! This week, the head honcho Miss Kraftin' Kimmie herself, is the hostess!! Your challenge: use "old" stuff on your project! (now, yes we did cheat a little because we are using a brand-spankin' new image...so I guess this is a case of "do as I say, not as I do"??!! hehe) Now, I had to ask Miss Kimmie what would be considered "old"...one year, one month, one week....one day??? Just make sure you are pulling stuff out of your supply stash...no last minute trips to your local store to pick up that "perfect" missing element!

Ok, I'm sure you're anxious to see our final Tea Party cast member. So, without further ado, here's "Gabrielle"!


She's so proper, don't you think?? I just love her party dress...and that hair!! That's some big hair...too bad she wasn't a child of the 80's, huh? lol I dug through my paper stash, and came up with this pretty KaiserCraft paper (for the record, it is a few month's old!!). I paired it up with various Bazzill cardstocks and a little snippet of some polka-dotted DP from 3 Bugs in a Rug (ok, this paper isn't super-old, but it's been in my stash for at least 2 weeks!) "Gabrielle's" accessory stamp is the little "Teacup" you see on the heart tag.

I stamped my images on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers.


I hope you plan to participate in our challenge this week! Just remember, you need to use a Kraftin' Kimmie image! So, time to get yourself over to Kraftin' Kimmie's online store and order yourself some goodies! Remember, the Spring Tea Party Stamp Kit is exclusively available at the online store...you're not going to find it in any of your local stores. Also, it's a limited edition...so act fast! Hey, while you're there, why not pick up some "old" stamps too!!

Don't forget...we are having a BLOG HOP tomorrow to celebrate the Spring Tea Party Stamp Set!! You won't want to miss it, so make sure you come back bright and early tomorrow morning!
Oh...one more reminder!! lol Don't forget to hop around to all the Krafty Girls blogs. They've been hard at work this week bringing you projects made with this fantastic Kit!! So go on and leave them some love!

Blessings,

Melanie
