October Kraftin' Kimmie Previews...Round Two!!

Good morning folks! I'm planning to kick back and take it easy today...gotta recover from Scrapfest, lol!! What a fantastic event. I spent both days "working" (more like "playing"!!) at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps booth along with Kimmie, her hubby Al, her daughter Emileigh and some fabulous Krafty friends Krista, Vicki and Tara. We were busy hosting make and takes on Friday, and doing colouring demos on Saturday while Kimmie's stamps were flying off the racks...even Al and Emileigh got in on the colouring fun! We had an absolute blast, and were thrilled to meet everybody who came out to the event. Not only did we see some familiar faces, but we met so many new people! We were also able to meet up with some friends who we had only known "online"'s always so nice to be able to meet in person! Thanks so much for making Kraftin' Kimmie's very first experience at Scrapfest such a wonderful success!

We're also gearing up for the October release this Tuesday! The sneak peeks started yesterday during our weekly challenge. We have another round of previews to bring you today. Make sure to pop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog for links to all the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests who have sneak peeks to show you today.

This gent is "Nick" one of six brand new stamps by Krafty artist Annie Rodrigue. I'm loving his super cool pose...and how he's just waiting for some lovely gal to join him under the mistletoe! I used some great Christmas papers from My Mind's Eye on this clean and simple card. The sentiment seen here actually comes with one of our other new October stamps (Christmas Clara...I used her on my card yesterday).

Nick was stamped on Neenah smooth cardstock with Memento ink and coloured with Copic markers.

Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59 Pants: E50, E41, E42, E43, E47 Shoes: C9, C7, C5 Jacket: C9, C7, C5, C3 Shirt: R22, R27, R46, R59 Tie: G20, G82, G85

We will have one more round of sneak peeks to show you always, you will find a list of the sneak peeks on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog. The official release day is Tuesday...and we will be having our usual release day blog hop to celebrate!!

Thanks so much for stopping by friends! I hope you enjoy today's sneak peeks, and I hope to see you back tomorrow!
