Holiday Release Blog Hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Good morning and welcome to the release day blog hop for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

This month, Kimmie is letting us all get a jump start on our holiday projects by releasing a wonderful collection of Christmas images: the gorgeous Holiday Trinkets designed by Nicole Aspinall, the super sweet Holiday Lulu and Libby by Cheryl Alger, six wonderfully whimsical Santa and His Elves characters by Emilie Goulet and six incredible Holiday Girls by Annie Rodrigue. You'll see many of the new stamps on the blog hop today to help inspire you and get those festive creative juices flowing! As you hop along, make sure to leave comments for your chance to win packages of some of the new stamps. :)

This gorgeous baker is Grace...if only I looked this fabulous when baking! I paired her up with some Echo Park Christmas paper from last year. The "Joy" sentiment is one of the new Holiday Trinkets. It was stamped on Neenah and then coloured with Copics. The black accents were all cut with Spellbinders Parisian Accents elements. In real life, the reds actually do match quite well...sometimes reds give me a hard time in photographs.



Here's a closer look at Grace:


Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Dress: R22, R27, R46, R59, C5, C7  sorry...I forgot to record the colours used on her apron...d'oh!

When you're finished the hop, make sure to go to the Kraftin' Kimmie Online Shop where all the new stamps are now available for purchase. As always, the Gimmie Kimmie Kits will be available, but only for a limited time!  These kits are divided up by artist and available at a great discount.

(Oh, and don't forget to register for Krafty Day 2012!!!)

Here's the complete hop list: Thanks so much for stopping by!

Blessings,

Melanie
