June Release Day...Pirates!!

It's June Release Day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!! We’re celebrating with a fun blog hop featuring all of the new stamps...so glad you could join us!

Over the last few days, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists for our June release! We’ve got an adorable new pirate kids set from Cheryl called LIL SWASHBUCKLERS, there's a fin-tastic new set from Thais called UNDER THE SEA 2 and lastly, we are excited to share a sassy new stamp set from Annie called BOOTYLICIOUS!

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!! When you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new stamps are available NOW! And don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new June stamps at a discount, but only for a limited time!

The front of my card features my favourite stamp this month. This sassy pirate lass is one of two main images in the Bootylicious set by Annie. In case I haven't told you all, I love pirates. lol I stamped her in Memento Desert Sand and coloured her with Copics. (this is the image I coloured during our online Krafty Krop yesterday...if you attended, you may have seen my "in progress" pictures) The papers are from a Carta Bella pad. All paper was distressed with scissors and black ink. Those pretty hinges on the left hand side were cut with Ornate Hinge from Dies by SCACD. I added a bow and an antiqued key to finish it off. 



I also finished the inside of my card with another new stamp from the Under The Sea 2 set by Thais. Isn't this little octopus fun?! Although, I am wishing I had coloured the starfish in something other than bright orange...doesn't really go with the card. lol  The flourish is an MFT die and the corner embellishement is Contempo Compass Statement Corner from Dies by SCACD



Just wanted to give a shout out to all our Krafty friends who attended the Krop and the Release Party on Facebook yesterday...I had so much fun hanging out with everybody!! It was fun to chat and see what everybody was working on. I'm already looking forward to next time! 

Ok, time to send you off on the rest of the hop...don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win! Here's the list:


Thanks for stopping by. :)

Blessings, 

Melanie

Octopus card is adorable and I like the orange on the starfish, it keeps him from being "lost" in the treasure. Your first card is fantabulous!!! Her outfit looks like it's made of velvet and I want to run my finger over it to check! Thanks for sharing...I aspire to color so well someday!
