Kraftin' Kimmie's Spring Tea Party Stamp Kit Blog Hop!

(This is one of two posts today! If you are looking for my High Hopes challenge post, please scroll up, or just click here!!)

Whew! What a week of fun it has been showing you Kraftin' Kimmie's very first stamp kit!! When Kimmie first showed the Krafty Girls this Tea Party Kit, we all fell in love with it! I hope you have enjoyed visiting the Krafty Girl's blogs this week to see what they've made to get you inspired! This incredible kit is being offered exclusively at Kraftin' Kimmie's online store. In case you've missed all the buzz this week, here's what's in the Spring Tea Party Kit:


  • 5 main images by Annie Rodrigue

  • 5 accessories stamps

  • 2 sets of coordinating tea and coffee sentiments (created by Jeanne Streiff) with 32 phrases in total!

This kit is being offered to you at an amazing price!! You should act quickly though stampers, as they've already been flying off the shelves! You don't want to miss out, so make sure to order your's today.


Ok, so we've been promising you a blog hop, and today's the day!! The talented artist of this kit, Annie Rodrigue, is joining us today for the fun! So, if you've arrived here from the fabulous and sassy Andrea's blog, then you're on the right track! If not, make sure to start at The Challenge Blog so you don't miss out on anything!!

Kimmie has listed the blog hop order on the Challenge Blog.


I decided to use Gabrielle again. I had wanted to use her with that French Flea Market paper from MME. I know you might be tired of seeing it, as I've been using it all week. Let me explain though! I picked this paper up with the intention of using it for this Spring Kit release! I just love the colours in it, and thought they were perfect for these images! Now, Kimmie's challenge yesterday did not allow me to use my new paper with Gabrielle, hence my decision to ink her up again for today!! (well, technically I didn't use these papers with Nadine, so perhaps I should make another card with her too...so I have a complete coordinating set!)

I also wanted to do something other than a card. I had picked up these fabulous wooden baskets at Michaels on a recent trip to London...perfect for a gift holder!! I covered one with Bazzill cardstock and MME paper. I sanded down all the edges. I also had a pack of wooden tags from Michaels that I covered the same way. This is a sentiment you will receive in the Spring Kit! I added a few Prima Hydrangeas, metal spacer beads, a bow tied with my Bow Easy, and VOILA!! I perfect little holder for some tea bags.





Now, from here you will be hopping over to visit the brilliant artist of these fantastic images, Annie Rodrigue!! Before you go though, did you know that there's a prize up for grabs?? You can't have a BLOG HOP without a prize right?? Kimmie will be randomly choosing two lucky hoppers to win some Tea Party stamps and accessories!! To get your name in the draw for this prize, all you have to do is leave a comment on every Krafty Girl's blog!! Easy peasy!

So, off you go to see Annie! Make sure to get over to Kimmie's online store after you are done hopping. It's the only place you will find this exclusive kit. They are moving fast stampers, so make sure to get one ordered now!

Have fun on the hop!

Have a blessed day!

Melanie
