Masquerade! (April release day at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!)

It’s APRIL RELEASE Day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS and we’re celebrating with a hop!! 



Over the last few days the Krafty Girls and guests have shared beautiful creations featuring new stamp sets from all of our artists for our April release! First off, we are releasing the limited edition I {HEART} COFFEE! stamp set from Emilie! There's a cute new kids set from Cheryl called SWEET BIRTHDAY KIDS! And of course, we are thrilled to share a gorgeous new set from Annie called....LIFE IS A MASQUERADE! Lastly we are thrilled have another incredibly fun set from Emilie Goulet called, A BIT SMART ASSY!

You will get to see all of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy the April 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 gift card to the shop!! When you’re done hopping, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because all the new rubber stamp sets are available for purchase!! And don't forget...if you NEED it all, we have a Gimme Kimmies Kit which features ALL the new April stamps at a discount, but only for a limited time!

Here's my card featuring one of the fabulous stamps from Life is a Masquerade. I stamped her with Memento Desert Sand ink and coloured her with Copics. The background was made by first stenciling a damask pattern with a dimensional gel on plain cardstock. When that was dry, I applied swatches of colour using various Silks Acrylic Glazes. I then added some Blank Canvas background stamps from SCACD. To finish off the card, I added a few rhinestones. 



There are also lots of new goodies in the KKS Shop including new paper pads by Echo Park, Doodlebug, American Crafts and Chickaniddy plus MORE new Kimmie's Sparkles!! wink emoticon

**Local Krafty Friends!! If you wanna get krafty with some of the Krafty Girls and myself, I'm holding a SPRING SELFIE CROP! at Kraftin' Kimmie Headquarters in St. Thomas, Ontario on Saturday, May 9th! Get all the information HERE and register right away because there are only a few spots left! I am so excited for this event...I'm counting down the days until I get to go hang out with everybody attending!

My goodness, I cannot get over how amazing this is, Melanie! Your coloring is beyond description and that background...!! I read how you made it and actually have pretty much everything to try it. Can't wait to give it a whirl! Good luck with nursing school. It sounds a lot more rigorous than when I went through it.
