Let the Previews Begin!!!!

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! The day is finally here!! I can finally start showing you the new images that are the first release of my new stamp company....Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! yaaaaaaaay!!

As you know, I have two tremendously talented gals who are my Krafty Artists!! The first one is Crissy Armstrong!! You may already know her as she has been designing stamps for four years and now I'm thrilled that she's working with me!!!





The first image from Crissy is one you've probably already seen, if you've hopped over to my new online store (which will be up and live on Monday!!). This image is actually inspired by our Jack Russell Terrier and her name is Daisy!! The stamp is about 3ins x 3ins and comes with the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps copyright stamp for the backs of your designs!! OH, did I forget to mention?? ALL of Crissy's images that are being released this month, come with a coordinating sentiment stamp!!! How cool is that???



I used Bazzill Bling cardstocks and Bittersweet designer papers by Basic Grey for this card. I added some chocolate satin ribbon, some pink Prima flowers attached with BG brads and pop dotted everything! The sentiment I used on this particular card is from my Kimmie's Everyday Sentiments stamp set!!! There are over 30 awesomely cute sentiments in this set, in lots of fun fonts!!



My second totally funky artist is new to the stampin' world, but definitely not new to illustrating! She is a phenomenally talented artist and I am SO stoked that she is working with me!!! Annie Rodrigue has such a completely new and unique style and I'm SO excited to share her images with you!!!



Please meet Francesca!!! She is the first image that Annie drew for me and I instantly fell in LOVE with this girl!! When we discussed this image, I said I'd like a girl with a lit cupcake in her hand, and Annie put her spin on it and gave me a tower of cupcakes!! Just perfect!! I love her fun hat and adorable dress with the berries on it too! She is about 4ins x 2ins!

OH!! And did I forget to mention??? ALL of Annie's images with this first release, come with a coordinating accessory stamp??!!! How super cool is that?? I didn't happen to use it on this card, but Francesca comes with an adorable cupcake stamp!!

Of course I coloured both images with my Copic markers....duh!! And I added some velvet scalloped ric rack at the top of this one and some Prima Caboodles. I also sparkled up the cuppycakes with my Sakura Stardust gel pen.

So what do you think of the first two images?? Fun, right??? Well, why don't you check out the other Krafty Girls blogs and see what little goodies they might have to show you!!!

Linda Deline said...

Wow... love the new stamps. But my favorite is Lilith!! I just love her. Easy to see which will be my first purchase. I'm so sorry I can't be there on Sunday but with the family coming over... I could talk Terry Lynn into going, but Annette's not on board for stamping yet. Congratulations again... both with your stamps and on choosing the Krafty Girls. I think with Annie on board I'll be working part time for awhile yet. She's got a GREAT style. God bless.

Love the designs and just received my stamps - this is going to seem like a very silly question - but since I have only used clear stamps or stamps mounted on wood, could someone advise me how I use the rubber stamps from Kimmie.

Thanks

If you email me directly, I'd be happy to advise you!
