Friends are For Hugging...Day Two of the June Sneak Peeks for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

(This is my second post for the day...please scroll back to check out a little teaser about a fantastic new product at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!!)

Good morning folks!! Welcome to another round of sneak peeks for the June Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Release this Sunday. Today the Krafty Girls are sharing projects featuring the newest stamps by Krafty Artist Cheryl Alger.

This is "Friends are For Hugging"...what a sweet image! It comes with the co-ordinating sentiment seen on my card, which was stamped in Versafine Ink. How many of you had that special stuffed animal friend who went with you everywhere when you were a kid? I did...her name was Cuddles. :) Unfortunately, I think she accidentally made her way into a goodwill donation bag when I was a teenager...I'm still a little bitter over that, lol. She was well-worn and well-loved...a treasured childhood "friend". :) This adorable image reminds me of her...I always smile when I see children clutching their special "stuffy". The papers are all from MME Stella and Rose(Hattie). The bow was tied with the aide of my handy-dandy Bow Easy. All papers and the ribbon were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


"Friends are for Hugging" was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers. The sky was created with Memento Summer Sky, a makeup sponge and a hand-cut cloud template.



Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E31, E33, E37, E59, Y21, Y26, E50 Dress: B91, B93, B96, B97, B99, C5, C7, Y26 Shoes: E50, E25 Bear: E30, E31, E33, E37, E50, E59, C7 Grass: YG00, YG03, YG11, YG63, YG67, G99, C9

Beautiful card Melanie!! My Mom had a hard time getting rid of my stuff, I'm pretty sentimental, so I still have my most treasured stuffed animal (a Wrinkles Dog)

Hi Melanie, I do like what the other ladies made, but I must admit that this card is my favorite so far. Your colouring is brilliant, the shading is perfect and this is my kind of colour combination. It's so different from all of the other cards. Love it!!! Hugs, Frea
