Welcome to the release day blog hop with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Kimmie has yet another fantastic collection of stamps that I know you will love. :) There's the new Lulu and Libby set from Cheryl Alger, two sets featuring teenagers called "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Emilie Goulet, six Neverland themed characters by Annie Rodrigue, a "Neverland Sentiments" set and the "Thank You Trinkets" set designed by Krafty Girl Nicole Aspinall!!
The hop starts over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog where you will find the complete hop list. If you have been following along, you should have arrived here after visiting the lovely and talented Jenny.
My first card today features my personal favourite from Annie this month, "Captain Hook". I love him!! He comes with two sentiments, "Hooked on You" and "Ya Scalliwag!". I used the sketch from our weekly Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge and flipped Pam's sketch on it's side. The map paper, banner and vertical panel are all from DCWV "Once Upon A Time". The background paper is actually from MME "Lost and Found Christmas". The "map" was crumpled up and sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, as was the "Treasure Map" banner. The banner was cut from the same piece of paper as the "map". I placed some pop dots under a few sections of the map and banner to give it a bit of dimension. The little skull is from some fabric trim.
Here's a closer look at Hook...Annie put an incredible amount of detail into him. Just take a look at that feathered hat, curled hair, trademark "hook" and that amazing jacket. He's awesome. :) I stamped Hook on Neenah with Memento Ink and coloured him with Copics.

My second card features one of the stamps from the new Thank You Trinkets Set. These trinkets are fabulous to add as sentiments with your image stamps, for use in scrapbooks, journals, smashbooks or as the focal point of a card as I've done here. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two. The trinket was mounted and framed with Cirlce and Lacey Circle Spellbinders. The flourish was cut with an MFT die and the rose is from Prima.
All the new June stamps are now available for purchase at the KKS Online Store. Kimmie will also be offering the Gimmie Kimmie's Kits which will be availabe at a great discount but only for a limited time. The kits are divided by artist and are a fantastic bargain for those stampers who "need" them all. :)
Ok, it's now time for me to send you off to visit with Sandie, who I know has something gorgeous to share with you! Don't forget to leave comments along the way as Kimmie will be drawing some lucky winners who will receive packages of some of the new June stamps!!
