"Anne of Green Gables"...February Release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Good morning and welcome to the release day blog hop with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Over the last several days, you've seen all the amazing stamps as showcased by the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests. They are now available for purchase at the KKS Online Store!! We've got the Springtime Sweeties and Bookworm Trinkets by Nicole Aspinall, Li'l Buckaroos and Somebunny Loves Me sets by Cheryl Alger, World of Wonder set by Emilie Goulet and six Lovely Literature characters by Annie Rodrigue. You'll get another peek at these stamps in action as you visit the blogs on our hop today.

As you're hopping along, make sure to leave comments for your chance to win packages of some of the new stamps! The complete blog hop list will be included at the end of this post.

My hop card features the lovely Anne of Green Gables. I paired her up with some pretty Prima paper, a few pearls and a snippet of crocheted trim. I absolutely love this sentiment that comes with Anne. The corner element was cut with Spellbinders Parisian Accents. The paper edges were distressed with scissors. They were then sponged with Stormy Sky and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. Machine stitching was added for a finishing touch.

Anne was stamped on Neenah with Memento ink and coloured with Copics.
