It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...Kraftin' Kimmie Release Day Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the release day blog hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! This month, Kimmie and her Krafty Artists are bringing you a fantastic assortment of Christmas themed stamps to suit all your holiday projects. There is the gorgeous O Holy Night Nativity Set by Cheryl Alger, a Nativity Sentiment Set, a Christmas Inside Sentiment Set, some fun Christmas characters by Emilie Goulet and a collection of gorgeous angels by Annie Rodrigue. We've all had so much fun playing with these new stamps, and I'm sure many (if not all!!) have found their way onto your Krafty wish list!

The hop today begins over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog where you will find a complete list of links to the participating designers. As you hop along, make sure to leave comments on each blog for your chance to WIN a package of some of the new release stamps. (Two lucky winners will be drawn!)

If you've been hopping along, you should have arrived here after visiting with the very lovely Angie Baker. If not, just pop on over to the KKS Blog to start at the beginning.

This beautiful angel is "Felicity" by Krafty Artist Annie Rodrigue. The design paper is all from My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly Collection. I used a few Spellbinders sets to cut out the various elements. (Circles, Lacey Circles and Parisian Accents) Black Soot and Antique Linen Distress Inks were used to sponge around the paper edges and some dollar store pearls were added as a finishing touch.


On the inside, I used one of the sentiments that is included in the Nativity Sentiments Set...I love how all the different image and sentiment stamps from this release compliment each other! The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Ink and I used a couple of elements from Spellbinders Parisian Accents to dress it up.


Here's a closer look at Felicity...I think she's just gorgeous! She is so serene and peaceful. Felicity is perfect for Christmas cards, but I think she would also be beautiful on cards or projects for so many other occasions. ("praying for you", sympathy, baptisms, friendship...these angels really are very versatile!) Felicity's wings were given a pretty shimmer with a generous coat of Stardust Stickles. She also comes with a coordinating sentiment, "Angels sent from up above, please protect the ones we love.". (she was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers)
