August Krafty Hop!

Hello~ hello~~ It's release day over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and we are celebrating it with a Krafty Hop! This month we are releasing a lovely Lulu set from Cheryl Alger and it's called Halloween Lulu. There are also two new Halloween sets from Emilie Goulet called Too Cute To Spook 1 & Too Cute To Spook 2. And Annie Rodrigue has created a set of sweet Candy Girls. There is also a fun Halloween Trinkets set by Nicole Aspinall!

Hope you are having fun hopping with us. Here are my cards for the hop.


First up is Izzy Ice Cream from Annie's Candy Girls collection. Can you guess what flavor that I was trying to achieve? =)


Miss Izzy Ice Cream is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size.


The patterned paper is from Neapolitan 6x6 Paper Pad by American Crafts. The brown gingham piece underneath the sentiment is a piece of Japanese washi tape from my stash. The sentiment comes with Miss Ice Cream.


I used the adorable bumble bee trick or treat girl from Too Cute To Spook 2 set for my second card. I can't get enough of Emilie's adorable images!!


The image is stamped on Copic X-Press It! Blending Card, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. I added some Star Dust Stickles to her wings for a little interest.


The patterned paper is from Heyday 6x6 Paper Pack by Studio Calico and the sentiment comes with the Too Cute To Spook 2 set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to check out what the other Krafty Girls created for the hop using the new release following the links below. Remember to leave comments as you go since TWO lucky winners will each win a package of assorted new stamps. Also, all the new stamps are available starting new over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Store!
