(This is one of two posts on my blog today...please scroll up, or click HERE for an exciting announcement from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!)
Good morning friends. It's release day today at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and we're having a blog hop to celebrate! Over the last several days, the Krafty Girls and our Krafty Guests have been sharing some fabulous sneak peeks featuring the newest stamps to Kraftin' Kimmie. We introduced you to a brand new artist Cheryl Alger who has designed some exclusive Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, Scripture Quotes, several new stamps from artist Steven Leary and a collection of gorgeous Sporty Girls from Annie Rodrigue. On our blog hop today, you'll see some beautiful projects featuring many of the new May stamps.
The hop begins over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog where you will find a list of all the designers participating today. The rules are pretty simple...as you hop along, make sure to leave a comment at each and every blog as Kimmie will be drawing some random commenters who will win some of the new stamps. :)
You should have arrived here after visiting with the lovely Andrea Murdock. If not, just begin the hop over the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog to ensure that you visit each blog along the way.
This lovely young tennis star is "Krista", designed by Krafty Artist Annie Rodrigue. Now some of you Kraftin' Kimmie fans will note that this stamp shares a name with one of our lovely Krafty Girls, Krista Van Tol. Well, word is that Miss Krista is quite the tennis enthusiast and so "Krista" seemed to be the perfect name for this new sporty stamp. (I'm terrible at tennis, so my apologies Krista...I will not be challenging you to a match any time soon! lol) The paper from MME Stella and Rose ("Hazel"...bought this at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!! You can find her amazing selection of 6x6 paper pads HERE.). The sentiment comes with "Krista" along with a bonus sentiment that says "Life is a ball!".
Krista was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers. I sponged around her with Spun Sugar and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I have to admit that I'm not thrilled with my colouring of her skirt...pinks and I don't seem to get along very well at all. :( I really do need to devote some quality time to practicing with them. Her outfit really is adorable though...quite chic! I love the clothing Annie creates for her characters...they always add such personality!
