Let's Meet the Artists!!


Thank you SO much for your love and support! I can't tell you how much that means to me! It seems as though you are almost as excited about Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps as I am!!! Well, almost!! Haha!

Today I'd like to introduce you to the totally talented gals behind the images. If you took a good look at the banner I showed you in the last post, you might have recognized her style. I know you've heard her name before, as she's been illustrating in the rubber stamping industry for about four years now. Did you guess Crissy Armstrong?? You're right!



Crissy and I had worked together for about two years on the High Hopes design team. She was the artist and I was the design team coordinator. Well, when Crissy decided to leave them and pursue other avenues earlier this summer, I felt like I should approach her to work on a stamp line with me. I knew that if I didn't ask her, someone else would! When she agreed, I was over the moon and the ball just started rolling!

Crissy has been drawing most of her life, taking lots of art courses through college. She especially loves doing stamp images because she gets to create fun designs which is a joy in itself, but then she gets to see what the stampers create with her images when they add colour and paper and embellishments!! I'm so thrilled to be working with such a sweet and wonderful person and I'm so excited to show you the adorable images she has been working on!!





The second artist for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is Annie Rodrigue!! She is totally new to the stampin' scene but is going to make a huge splash, let me tell you! She is definitely not new to illustrating and
is a 2002 college graduate in classical animation from the Cégep du Vieux Montréal, Annie worked as a freelance illustrator and animator part-time for 4 years, but since November 2006, she decided to take her craft even more seriously by working full-time at home or in studios.

Annie is both a painter of fantasy and an animator at heart and her unique style is going to knock your socks off, I promise! Her designs have such personality and her style is so totally different from anything I've ever seen!

Now, be sure to come back soon and I'll introduce you to the talented design team of Krafty Girls!!!
