November Krafty Hop!

Happy Sunday, every one! It's release day over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and we are celebrating it with a Krafty Hop! This month KK is releasing two sweet sets by Cheryl Anger called Together is Better and Sending All My Love. There are the lovely Sew in Love, Love Birds and Candy Hearts by Nicole, also the adorable Love is in the Air from Thais Narciso. And the adorable Happy Valentine's Day, I {Heart} You, Owl Love and Bear Hugs illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller. We are also welcoming back Annie with Hannah Hearts! All the new stamps are available starting NOW in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Store! Here are my cards for the hop.


First up is I {Heart} You by Rachelle Anne Miller. I love that many of the stamps released this month don't have to be used exclusively for Valentine's Day. =)


This adorable image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then die cut and trimmed to size. I added Christmas Red Stickles on the little hearts on the balloons then covered all the balloons with Glossy Accents for a little shine and texture.


The patterned paper is from Lucky Charm 6x6 Paper Pad by American Crafts and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.


My second card used Bear Hugs, another stamp from Rachelle Anne Miller's Valentine collection.


This image is called and it's stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then fuzzy cut out. A bit of Glossy Accents is added to the mini heart for a little fun texture.


I created the background using a few of my beloved Japanese washi tapes. It's a quick and fun way to make a background and it allows me to play with my tapes! =) The sentiment comes with I {Heart} You also released today.

Have fun hopping and thanks for stopping by!
