Kraftin' Kimmie's Blog Hop


I am so happy to be here for Kimmie's Krafty Blog Hop!!! Today marks the release of the December images from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! Yay!!! There are 4 new images from Crissy Armstrong, 4 new images from Annie Rodrigue, two new sets of sentiments and two new images from a brand new artist, Jean Grant! You’ll get to check out all the images throughout our fabulous blog hop!! The talented artist Annie Rodrigue is joining us on the hop too!!! Annie got a chance to play with one of her own images and created her very first handmade card!!! I can't wait to see it!

If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because three lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie store, because ALL the new images are NOW available!

If you are in the UK or Europe Kraftin' Kimmie's stamps are available to purchase at Bunny Zoe's Crafts!!! The stamps are in stock and shipping tomorrow!!!

The gorgeous gal on my card today is Yvette. Yvette comes with two sentiments and an accessory stamp. She is stamped with Stazon and watercoloured with Distress inks and I also used SU Real Red for her bow and boots. The fabulous papers are one of my favourites right now and are Cosmo Cricket Early Bird. I added the gorgeous new Prima mini roses to the centres of my flowers. These little flower sets make life so much easier as you get 3 different shades of one colour. Punched edge using Martha Stewart Doily Lace.

Your next stop on the hoppity hop is Elaine!!! Thanks so much for having me again Kimmie!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hugs,
