Kraftin' Kimmie February Krafty Hop!

Hi and welcome to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps February Krafty Hop! It's a fabulous release and you wouldn't want to miss what the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests came up with for the hop using various new stamps. This month, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is releasing a cute set from Cheryl Alger called Lulu and Friends, two cute and fun sets from Emilie Goulet called Tweets and Tweeters 1 and Tweets and Tweeters 2. There is a new Superheroes collection by Annie Rodrigue and the versatile In Stitches set. All the new stamps are available starting today! Now, on to today's hop.

If you came from Jenny's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog. Here is my card featuring one of the new Superheroes.


Hee... This superhero is close to my heart since I too have to have my coffee in order to properly start my day. =) Her name is Coffee Crusader.


I trimmed a piece of PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock to 3/8" smaller than the card base (A2) then stamped Coffee Crusader and sentiment on it with the help of a Stamp-a-ma-Jig. The image is then colored with Copic markers.


This is another very simple design from me, hope you liky. =) The sentiment comes with this stamp.

That's all from me and it's time to send you to Elaine's blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way, because two lucky commenters will each receive a package of assorted new stamps! Again, all new stamps are available starting today at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Have fun hopping and good luck! =)
