DAY THREE - MAY SNEAK PEEKS WITH KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!

 
 
Welcome back again to Day THREE of our MAY release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We have TWO new stamp sets from artist Annie Rodrigue and REMEMBER that this are some of the last images. As she has chosen not to design stamps anymore and has ended her contract, we can no longer restock/reorder ANY of her stamp sets. Once these sell out, they are gone for good so be sure to snap them up!  The first one is BUFFY BINGEWATCHER!


The second set is BUSY BEATRICE!

This was such a fun image to colour!!  Especially all those arms!!  I can relate to this, can you?
Once again, I have coloured the image using Copics.  The designer paper is from the Lawn Fawn - Perfectly Plaid and Watercolor Wishes paper pads.  I've used a couple of Spellbinder dies, and a banner die from YNS.  The butterflies are an MS punch.  I just thought this image needed some lace and flowers!

Artistic Inspirations - #199 Anything Goes.
Crafting From The Heart - #205 Anything Goes.

We have another super cute stamp to feature today!  I coloured the image with Copics.  The designer paper is from the Echo Park - Once Upon A Time paper pad.  I used a corner punch to create the lacy circle doily behind the image and cardstock.  It's a great way to use all your corner punches!  I finished the card off by adding flowers, ribbon and the sentiment.

I've created three thank you cards using today's stamp set Beautiful Blooms.  I used Distress Oxide Inks for the background.  The colours I used were Mermaid Lagoon, Pickled raspberry and Wilted Violet.  I used the just released Hybrid Inks from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps to stamp the flowers.  Then I used embossing paste and a stencil to create the look of bricks.  The sentiment Thanks is a die and the sentiment 'for being you' is from the Fancy Flamingo stamp set.  Then I added a few sequins.
More pictures of each card!
