November Previews...Round Two!!

(This is post #2 for me today! Please feel free to scroll back to see the Wags 'n Whiskers challenge for this week!)

Welcome back for another round of previews for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! (Links for all of today's sneak peeks can be found at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog.) The official release day is this Sunday, and we will be having our usual release day blog hop...hope you plan to join us! We'll also have one more round of previews tomorrow during our weekly challenge.

My card today features "Mona the Seamstress", one of six new stamps by artist Annie Rodrigue. I adore the old sewing table Mona has...actually, my friend has an antique sewing table that she is giving to me! (I just need to get my van over to her house to pick it up.) It looks very similar to the one sweet Mona has. The papers on my card are from The Paper Loft. I couldn't resist adding some machine stitching to this card, as it is just so fitting...it also happens to be one of my favourite embellishments. :) I had a perfect little antique sewing machine button that has been kicking around in my button stash for a little while now. The little chipboard spool and needle were lightly shaded with my Copic markers, wound with embroidery floss and adhered with Scor Tape.



Mona was stamped on Neenah smooth paper and coloured with Copic makers. Her little spectacles were given a coat of Glossy Accents. Believe it or not, I actually made it through a card without adding Stickles!! lol



Copics: Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E50, E30, E31, E33, E37, E59 Clothes: B000, B91, B97, BG000, BG10, Bg72, BG75 Sewing machine and "metal" parts of table: C00, C1, C3, C5, C9 Table: E40, E41, E42, E43, E47, E59 Cloth: G20, BG93, G94

Are you loving these new stamps??? I adore this release...but then again, I adore every release, lol. You won't have to wait much longer...the new November stamps will be available for purchase on Sunday.

In the meantime, hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog to visit the other Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests who have sneak peeks to share with you today!

Blessings,

Melanie
