It's Release Day at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

Welcome to the release day blog hop for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of adorable new stamps from all our artists!  We’ve got something for everyone!!  Cheryl Alger has created a new set called LULU ON THE MOVE!  We also have TWO fantastic sets of whimsical fairies from Emilie Goulet called FLIRTY FAIRIES 1 and FLIRTY FAIRIES 2!!!  And of course we have an amazing new set of six EVERYDAY GIRL stamps from Annie Rodrigue, featuring stamps for the teacher, nurse, wedding/anniversary, graduation, I love you cards and get well cards!!!  OH and don’t forget the BRAND NEW line of stamps called EVERYDAY TRINKETS by the lovely Krafty Girl Nicole Aspinall!!!

You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our MAY Krafty Hop!  If you have been hopping along in order, you should have arrived here after visiting with the lovely and talented Beate, who we're thrilled to have joining us once again as a Krafty Guest. I adore Beate's style. :)  If not, make sure to start from the beginning at the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog so you don't miss any blogs along the way.  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release!! 

There were so many great stamps to play with this month that I decided to make three cards for today's hop. :)

First up is one of the three images from the Lulu On The Move set. The papers are all from Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two. I also used one of the fantastic Everyday Trinkets which I cut out with my Spellbinders circles. 






Lulu was coloured with Copics and cut out with Spellbinders Labels 4. To "ground" her, I drew in the sidewalk and added some grass. The sky was sponged in with blue ink.  





Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59, YR31  Clothes: BG72, BG75, BG78, C9, YR31, Y17, Y21, E97, E99, R27, R46  Shoes: E97, E99, E18  Bike: R22, R27, R48, R59, C3, C5, C7, C9  Sidewalk: C00, C1, C3, C5  Grass: YG03, G82, YG63, YG67, G99

Next up is Miss Information, one of the new Everyday Girls from Annie Rodrigue. The sentiment is one of two that comes with this stamp. (The other reads, "You make the grade!") The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Ink. The paper is a snippet left from a My Mind's Eye pad, but I'm not sure which one, lol. I also added a couple of Make It Crafty chipboard corners what were coloured with my R27. 






Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Clothes: R22, R27, R46, R59, C3, C5, C7, C9  Chalkboard: C5  Letters: R27

Finally, I made another mini-note card with Nicole's fantastic Everyday Trinkets...these trinkets are fabulous on their own or in combination with your main images. One of the nice things about making mini-cards is that it gives you an opportunity to use up all those little snippets of design paper left over from larger projects. I also used the In Stitches Set to add some faux stitching in brown ink and finished the card off with a few pearls made with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen






It's my pleasure to send you off to visit with our final talented stamper on today's hop, Miss Kraftin' Kimmie!!! I know that Kimmie has something wonderful to share with you. :) 

When you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available!  And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!!  The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time!!

Thanks so much for stopping by...now off you go to see Kimmie!!

Blessings, 

Melanie
