Chooooo choooooo! ALL ABOARD!! It's time for our February Release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This month all FOUR of our awesome new stamp sets are ALL ABOUT BOYS!!
Today we are kickin' off Day ONE with a sweet new set from artist Cheryl Grant and if you haven't guessed, it's called..... ALL ABOARD!

This sweet new stamp features a large main image of Lucas and his puppy friend getting ready to ride the rails! What a fabulous set for boys birthdays and so much more! It also features FOUR awesome sentiments in a fun and funky font!
Be sure to join us each day as we count down to the February Release and have fun with us at the LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 2pm EST! We'll be checking out ALL of the FOUR new boy stamp sets, sharing fabulous creations, giving away prizes and having tons of krafty fun!

I'm so happy that this release is all about the boys!!  I always struggle to come up with an appropriate image or card design for boys/men!  These are perfect!
I started off coloring the image then cutting it out.  I added a number 9 to the engine.  This is going to be a birthday card for a little guy I know.  Then I created the background.  First I sponged on the clouds with distress ink.  I used Tumbled Glass.  Then I added some browns for the ground.  I used the Lawn Fawn fence die to create the tracks.  I just cut off the spikes or points of the fence. I used the YNS fishtail die with a Happy Birthday sentiment to finish it off. 
I hope you have been enjoying the hop for the beginning of our release this week.  Have a great day and thank for stopping and the lovely comments you always leave!
