Good morning and welcome to the release day blog hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! As you hop from blog to blog today, 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!! (The complete hop list will be included at the end of my post. )
For my card today, I used my favourite of the new Nerds and Geeks by Annie Rodrigue. This is Robot Boy...isn't he awesome?! The papers were all distressed and sponged with black ink. The clockwork corner was created with the Alice's Clock Statement Corner die from Dies by SCACD. I didn't have any silver cardstock, so I painted it with some silver acrylic paint and sponged it with black ink. The gears are all from dismantled dollar store clocks. Yes I know you can buy "crafty" gears, but I figured I'd save a few dollars. :) Only problem was that they were white plastic...not really the look I was going for with my card! So again, I reached for the silver craft paint to make them look like metal and then treated them to some black ink to grunge them up. I also added some metal corners that I've had in my stash for ages.
Robot Boy was stamped on Neenah in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. I added a bit of Glossy Accents to his goggles.
On the back of my card, I used one of the amazing new Handmade Trinkets. This new set of trinkets is perfect for finishing off all your handmade gifts. :) The trinket was stamped on kraft cardstock and I added a little banner for my name. It was cut out and matted with Spellbinders.
Don't forget to do some krafty shopping after the hop! 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!!
