A Little Christmas "Joy"...Day 3 of the Kraftin' Kimmie Previews!!

Happy Monday everybody!!! I know you're all bright-eyed, chipper and ready to start of another work week...right??? lol

While we may not all be super excited about heading off to work this morning, we do have a little somethin' that will put a smile on your face...how about some more sneak peeks of the brand new October Kraftin' Kimmie stamps?

This is "Virginia" and she will be available for purchase at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps tomorrow! She is one of six new Christmas characters by artist Annie Rodrigue. What a cutie-patootie...and look at all those presents she's carrying! I used some Christmas paper by My Mind's Eye on this card...I also used it to paper-piece the wrapping paper. The "JOY" sentiment comes with Virginia. (You'll also get a stocking accessory stamp!)



Virginia was stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers...except the presents, which were paper-pieced.


Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E50, Y21, Y23, Y17, E31, E33, E37, E59 Dress: R22, R27, R46, R59, G20, G21, G82, G85, G99

Make sure to check out today's sneak peeks by the rest of the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests...you'll find links to their blogs at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog.
