Icy Fairy

Welcome to the November Release Blog Hop at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!!

Over the last few days of Krafty Peeks, you have seen all the gorgeous new images for this month including the special edition Krafty Day set called COLOUR MY WORLD (plus a coordinating tote bag), SNOW MUCH LOVE! by Cheryl and two new winter fairy stamp sets from Annie called....ICY FAIRY and SNOWBALL FAIRY! You'll get another chance to see these stamps in action as you hop from blog to blog. Oh, and be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because one lucky stamper will win a $10 gift card!!

My card today features the gorgeous Icy Fairy by Krafty artist Annie Rodrigue. Isn't she gorgeous?? I stamped her in Memento Desert Sand and coloured her with Copics. Her wings and antennae were given a bit of sparkle with Stardust Stickles. The paper is from MME (pretty sure it's called Vintage Christmas). I distressed the paper edges and then added some brown ink and gold acrylic paint. I also added some Frantage embossing powder in both Shabby White and Antique Gold. The holly leaf and word "Joy" are wooden cutouts that were coloured and/or painted before adhering.

Here's the complete blog hop list:

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

We also have LOTS of brand new 6x6 paper pads for your holiday and winter creations by companies like Doodlebug, Bo Bunny, Lawn Fawn, Jillibean Soup, Fancy Pants and more!!

This is an awesome card. I love the papers you chose and inking the edges made it extra cool. Your vivid coloring is superb. It is so dramatic and makes her look 3D, and I love the snow and the gold dots. Very impressed.
