June Previews Begin Today at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

Are you all ready for the Kraftin Kimmie June Previews?? They are starting today. Let me tell you, the Krafty Girls have had a hard time waiting to share these stamps with you! This month is jam-packed with a ton of amazing may as well just go ahead and order them all, because good luck picking just a few! lol This month, Kimmie is introducing a brand new artist. His name is Steven Leary and he has designed the "Miles the Mouse" line. (there are four stamps featuring Miles this month) Not only that, but Kimmie is also introducing her Summer Stamp Kit this month!! It features some of the most gorgeous mermaid stamps you will find! I was just ridiculously happy when she revealed them to us...I LOVE THEM!

Stick with us this week for previews every day, followed by a BLOG HOP this Sunday June 13, 2010 which is the date you will be able to get your inky paws on the stamps! Check in at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog each day for a list of the Krafty Girls who will have sneak peeks for you.

So, without further delay let me introduce you to Marina! She is part of the amazing Summer Stamp Kit which includes a total of six gorgeous mermaids illustrated by artist extrodinaire Annie Rodrigue, accessory stamps and a fantastic sentiment set. Oh, Annie has just outdone herself with these mermaids! I love how Marina's tail and fins co-ordinate so beautifully with the little angelfish in this stamp.

After colouring Marina with my Copics, I glittered up her pretty tail and fins with Smooch Illuminate and Star Dust Stickles. Her little fish friend was given the same sparkly treatment. I added a few seashells I picked up at the beach too! All edges were sponged with Bundled Sage Distress Ink.

Copic colours:
Skin, E000, E00, E11 R20 Hair: E50, Y00, Y11, Y21, Y17, E33 Tail: YG00, YG03, YG11, YG63, YG67, G21, G99 Fish: Y02, Y06, Y21, Y17, E33, YG11, YG67, G21 Water: B000, B00, B02, colourless blender

So, do you want these mermaids for your very own?? You will not find these beauties in any retail store...the Summer Kit will be exclusively available for a limited time at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Online Store...and it will be on for a 20% discount (off the price if you were to buy them individually...which won't be until a bit down the road). I highly suggest ordering quickly on Sunday, as I know these kits are going to go quickly!

See you back tomorrow with a sneak peek at one of Kimmie's brand new Miles The Mouse stamps!
