Thoughtful Kimmie!!


NO, I'm not tootin' my own horn or anything......High Hopes named a stamp after me!!! Can you believe it??!! I was so excited when the new release stamps went live on the HH website on Friday night and I saw the name attached to this little girl stamp! I just can't contain myself! I've been immortalized in rubber!! Could there BE anything more special for a stamper??? (Said in my best Chandler Bing impression!) I wonder how I'd look in braids....hmmmm.

So I used Thoughtful Kimmie and several other new release stamps to create the scene on this card, which I'll be teaching at the Copics class this week at Scrappin' Great Deals!

All the cardstock used on this card is Bazzill regular cardstock or Bling and the patterned paper is by October Afternoon. Firstly, I stamped the Country Stand on Wausau bright white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I stamped Thoughtful Kimmie, Bucket of Sunflowers, Poppies and Daisy separately, coloured them and cut them out. I also stamped Fresh Picked on the top of the stand itself.

To colour the wood, I coloured the entire area using E31, then streaked overtop with E33, E43 and E57, then went over it all again using E31. That techique seemed to turn out really well. Then I placed Kimmie (heehee) in the stand and layered the three buckets of flowers in front, pop dotting the middle one. The rest of the Copic markers I used are: E00, R20, R85, R21, YG03, Y35, E25, E99, C1, C2, BG13 and BG72.

I added some corner punches, a border using my Fiskars punch and some frilly ribbon across the middle. Then I pop dotted the main layer! Ain't she a pretty picture??




As I said, this class is on Thursday night, July 16th at 6:30pm and there are only a couple of spots left. We'll be making this card and also this card, plus two more as designed by Andrea. So call Sheila today before we're all filled up!

OH and the winner of my Emileigh stamp giveaway is.............Margaret De Witt who said "How cool is that Kimmie!! Your daughter must be so thrilled to have a stamp made after her. Love your card too." Congratulations Margaret and be sure to email me with your shipping information!

Alrighty then, I'm off to work this afternoon, so I plan to do a little stampin' this morning in between a couple of loads of laundry. Have a super stampy Monday!!!

Your card is so cute and adorable. Seen the new release stamps and I need to be adding a few more to my collection. These stamps are fabulous. Always stamp perfectly with that deep etched rubber. Thanks
