Enough of that. We have much happier things to talk about today...we're kicking off the February 2012 sneak peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! We will be sharing daily sneak peeks over at the KKS Blog leading up to the release day on Sunday. Oh, and did I mention there is BLOG CANDY being given away each day??
Today, the Krafty Girls are sharing projects made with the brand new "In Stitches Set". This set includes a fantastic selection of six "stitches" in different sizes and four coordinating sentiments. I absolutely love adding stitching to my cards, but it can be quite time consuming to pull out my big machine, so this set is a fantastic alternative! On most of my paper panels, I used the smaller straight stitch stamp. I also used the small cross stitch stamp on the horizontal pink panel. The stitches and sentiment were all stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. The papers are from MME Madison Ave. I thought the design paper with the dress form and sewing machine were perfect for the In Stitches Set. I also used a pretty Kaisercraft wooden heart as an embellishment. It was first painted with an ivory acrylic craft paint. I stamped a pretty flourish design from Impression Obsession in Walnut Stain Distress Ink after the paint was dry. That was followed by applying some Spun Sugar Distress Ink with a make-up sponge and finally I used the brown ink to sponge around the edges. For finishing touches, I added a couple of snippets of crocheted trim and a few pearls created with a Viva Decor pen.
