Picture Perfect...Release Day at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Welcome to the JULY RELEASE BLOG HOP at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!! 


Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have introduced you to the new July stamps from all our artists. We’ve got an adorable new musical kids set from Cheryl called YOU'RE A ROCKSTAR! There's a furry new set from Thais called A KOALA-TY FRIEND! Lastly, we are SO excited to share a picture perfect new stamp set from Annie called....OH, SNAP!

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy the JULY Krafty Hop! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because one lucky stamper will win a $25 gift card!! When you’re done hopping, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are now available! And don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new July stamps at a discount, but only for a limited time! (the full blog hop list will be included at the end of my post)

My hop card today features one of the sassy Oh, Snap! girls. I used some gorgeous Graphic 45 papers called Botanical Tea...this 8x8 pad is in stock and on sale at the KKS Shop right now!!  I LOVE the patterns and vintage feel of this paper pad. It's definitely one of my favourites! All paper edges were distressed and sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Inks were used on the paper doily to antique it. I added some crocheted trim and pearls to finish it off. The Oh, Snap! photographer was stamped in Memento Desert Sand Ink and coloured with Copics. The polka-dotted portion of her dress was paper-pieced with some of the Graphic 45 papers. I added some shading to the paper-pieced part with Copics. 



As promised, here's the blog hop list...don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win!! You'll find all the new stamps over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop! 


Thanks for visiting. :) 

Blessings, 

Melanie
