Kraftin' Kimmie Spring Tea Party Kit...Preview #3!!

(I have two posts today! If you are looking for my Sweet 'N Sassy post, just scroll down or click here! )


Good morning!! I hope you have been enjoying the previews of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Spring Tea Party Stamp Kit! The Krafty Girls have been busy showcasing a different image from the kit each day. We started all the fun on Tuesday, so if you missed any of the days you can always scroll back on our blogs to see all the Tea Party fun!


Tuesday we introduced you to "Nadine", and Wednesday belonged to "Giselle". Today, we are showing you the gentleman of the party...meet "Henri"!! Oh, how sophisticated he is with his bowler hat and moustache! I just love the look on his face...look at him, leaning so casually on his cane. Who wouldn't want to go enjoy a java break with such a fine gent!



"Henri"was of course stamped on my favourite Copic compatable paper (Neenah). (Question for my readers here...do you like to see a list of the markers used?? I'm not in the habit of recording my colours, but I can start trying to do so if there is the interest. Leave me a comment to let me know.) Once again, I used that fabulous My Mind's Eye paper "French Flea Market"...oh how I LOVE the colours in this paper! (I'm thinking I should pick up another pack, lol!!) I didn't want this card to be fussy, so I left the layout very simple. I masked "Henri" and sponged around him with Distress Ink in Antique Linen followed by Memento Rich Cocoa. The sentiments featured on this card are part of the Spring Kit! I used "Henri's" accessory stamp, the "Sugar Bowl", on the inside of my card.





So, do you have a favourite so far?? We still have two more feature images to preview over the next two days, followed by a fun Blog Hop on Sunday! Now stampers, word has it these kits are moving fast...so please don't wait! Get yourself over to Kraftin' Kimmie's online store and order yours now! The price on this kit is fantastic, and Kimmie is currently offering a 10% discount on the set! Remember this kit is exclusively available at the online store.

Time to hop around to the other Krafty Girls to see what they've made with "Henri"!! (psst...I already know you will be impressed, cause they are fantastic!!) There are links to their blogs in my sidebar, as well as on the challenge blog!

See you back tomorrow morning

Blessings,

Melanie
