Anything Goes at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...and another round of March Sneak Peeks!!

Release week is always a blast at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...have you been keeping up with all the sneak peeks?? The March release includes a new Krafty Quotes set, some amazingly cute pirates from Steven Leary and the gorgeous Everyday Girls from Annie Rodrigue.

Today we're bringing you another round of sneak peeks with out weekly challenge. Your hostess this week is Miss Kraftin' Kimmie herself!! She's made it really easy for you this week...her challenge is Anything Goes!! So you have carte blanche this week...total creative freedom!!

My card features one of the brand new Everyday Girls by artist Annie Rodrigue. This lovely new mother is "Diana"...named after Kimmie's very sweet mother and Krafty Girl Diana Pickering!! Hmmm...I'm thinking this might very well be Baby Kimmie she's cradling in her arms. :) I just love this tender moment Annie captured so beautifully. The papers are from Prima. My card is pretty simple today...nothing fussy. I really like the patterns on these papers, so I didn't want to cover them up with a lot of embellishments. I think it also allows the image to really take centre stage. "Diana" comes with a baby rattle accessory stamp and two sentiments..."Sweet Little One" (which I used on the inside of my card) and "Precious Gift".




"Diana" was stamped on Neenah with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. The folded baby blankets were paper pieced with some of the Prima paper and then shaded with Copics.



Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E50, E30, E31, E33, E37, E59 Shirt: G20, G82, G85, G99, C9 Pants: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, C9 "Baby Kimmie's" blanket: E50, E41, E43, E47, B60, blender Bottle: B60, C3, Y11, Y17, E33, E37, E37

On the inside, I used one of the two sentiments that comes with "Diana". I also used the baby bottle accessory stamp that comes with Caroline.



If you play along with the Anything Goes challenge this week, you could be the lucky winner of one the stamps Kimmie used on her gorgeous cards...your choice of "Cap'n Charlie" or "Brigitte"!! (To be eligible, you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your project.) You can check out all the beautiful "sneak peek" projects by the Krafty Girls and our lovely Krafty Guests on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog.

Are you loving these new stamps as much as we are?? They will be available for purchase tomorrow! We'd love to have you join us tomorrow for the release day blog hop...hope to see you then!

Blessings,

Melanie
