March Krafty Hop!

Hi ya! It's release day over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! All new stamps are available starting today. Kraftin' Kimmie is releasing a cute and delightful set from Cheryl called Springtime Lulu. Emilie is releasing two adorable gnome sets called What's Up, Gnomie? and Hanging With My Gnomies. And Annie is adding a group of beautiful Flower Girls to her Moonlight Whispers collection. There is also a coordinating Flower Sentiments set to go with the Flower Girls. So don't forget to check them all out at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Store!

If you got here from Michele's Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way, TWO lucky commenters will each receive a package of assorted new stamps! Now, on to my cards for the release hop. =)


My first card is made using Anni's beautiful Rose.


I started out by trimming a piece of PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock to size then stamped Rose and the sentiment on it using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, then colored the image with Copic markers.


There is actually a little piece of patterned paper from Kissing Booth 6x6 Paper Pad by BasicGrey cut using Fiskars' border punch stitched to the bottom of the image piece. The sentient comes with Rose.


My second card is made using the knitting gnome from Emilie's Hangin' With My Gnomies set.


She is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Classic Rectangles Large die. The piece is then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Labels 23 die before I stitched the layers together. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a Classic Ovals Large die and matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Classic Scalloped Ovals Large die.


The patterned paper is from the yummy Neapolitan 6x6 Paper Pad by American Crafts and the sentiment is included in the Hangin' With My Gnomies set.

That's all I have, it's time to send you to Angie's Blog! You wouldn't want to miss what she created for the blog hop! =) Again, remember to leave comments along the way for the chances to win some new stamps and don't forget to check out the new releases here! Good luck and have fun hopping! =)


Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
