Welcome to the release day blog hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Kimmie has yet another fabulous line-up of stamps for April including the "Playtime Lulu Set" by Cheryl Alger, "Bug Buddies One" and "Bug Buddies Two" which are two new sets by Emilie Goulet, Wizard of Oz themed stamps by Annie Rodrigue and finally the "Oz Sentiments Set" to compliment Annie's stamps this month.
Our hop today began over at the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Blog where you will find a complete hop list. If you've been following along, you should have arrived here after visiting with the super sweet and talented Angie Baker. As you hop along, make sure to leave comments because Kimmie will be drawing two lucky winners who will each receive a package of some of the new April stamps.
My card today features the gorgeous good witch Glinda. Well truthfully, this was supposed to be my challenge card from yesterday, but we had a little something come up that prevented me from being able to play along. (The challenge is a sketch, so make sure to check it out HERE and play along for your chance to win yet another new April stamp!) I used paper from two MME pads, Miss Caroline All Dolled Up and Madison Ave. The flourish was created with an MFT die and I topped it off with a spray of pearls and some Prima roses. All paper edges were distressed and then sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I adore the font on the "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" sentiment which is part of the "Oz Sentiments Set"...it's so pretty!
Glinda was stamped in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. I also added some additional shading with a black Conte crayon and a paper blending stump. The background was sponged in with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. She was cut out and matted with Spellbinders Circles and Lacey Circles.

Make sure to stop by the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Online Store after the hop where you will find all the new April stamps available for purchase! Kimmie will of course be offering the Gimmie Kimmie Kits again for those of you who just have to have it all! These kits grouped together by artist are available at a discounted price, but only at a limited time so make sure to grab yours before they are gone!
It is my pleasure to send you off to visit with one of our lovely guests Tammy who I know has something gorgeous to share with you. :)
Have fun hopping...and don't forget to leave those comments for your chance to win some new stamps!!
