Good morning and welcome to the release day blog hop for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! This month's release includes the adorable "Snips and Snails" set by Cheryl Alger, two fun sets by Emilie Goulet for all the dog lovers called "Canine Capers 1 & 2" (sold separately) and six incredible new Gothic girls by Annie Rodrigue. Oh, and Kimmie is also releasing the "Best Friends" stamp that was designed by Annie Rodrigue as the commemorative stamp from Krafty Day 2011!
The hop begins over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog where you will find a complete list of all participants. If you've been following along, you will have arrived here after visiting with Krafty Girl Carole Burrage...not only is Carole ridiculously talented, but her witty sense of humour never fails to leave me in stitches. :) Oh, and while you're hopping around, make sure to leave comments as Kimmie will be drawing a couple of lucky winners who will win packages of some of the new November stamps!
For my card today, I inked up "Wednesday", one of the new Gothic Girls by Annie Rodrigue...isn't she fantastic?? Nothing sweeter than a little girl playing with her dolls...even when said girl has stitched an "X" over her doll's mouth! lol Annie's Gothic Girls combine just the right amount of cute with edgy...love her style so much! I used some papers from my scrap bin...I believe the green polka-dotted paper is from MME, and I'm not sure where the flowered paper is from. All paper edges were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and I added a few dollar store pearls. The decorative border was created with a Martha Steward punch.
Wednesday was stamped on Neenah cardstcock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R22 Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59 Clothes: G20, YG00, YG91, YG95, G99, R22, R27, R46, E59, C5, C7
On the inside of my card, I used the one of two sentiments that come with Wednesday:
(She also comes with the sentiment "Come Play With Me!".)
I already posted the following card back in October on Krafty Day, but thought I'd post it again since the "Best Friends" stamp is now availble to purchase:
After you finish hopping today, make sure to visit the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Online Store where all of the new November stamps are now available for purchase. (make sure to check out the Gimmie Kimmie Kits !)
Ok, it's now my extreme pleasure to send you off to visit with one of our incredible Krafty Artists, Emilie Goulet!! Emilie has been such a fantastic addition to the Kraftin' Kimmie artistic team, and her dog images this month are just brilliant!
Happy hopping and happy shopping. :) (and don't forget to leave those comments along the way for your chance to win some new stamps!)
