Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge......#11!


Woohooooo! Happy New Year to all my stampin' friends!!! Lots of inky wishes for each and every one of you! Lots of ink, rubber and time to use them!! Haha!

Today marks the first Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge of 2010! Not only that, but you get some EARLY sneak peeks of the January stamps!!! That's right! A couple of the Krafty Girls asked me if they could use the new stamps for today's challenge, since they had them in their hands already! I said, what the hey! (I really wanted to use mine too!) So you're going to see a few images that are new today!!

The uber-talented Michele is our host this week and she chose one of my favourite techniques! Paper piecing!! I love to cut out little clothes for my images using fun patterned paper, don't you?? It's little being a little girl again!

One special note! Anyone and everyone is encouraged to join in our weekly challenges, but in order to be eligible to win our blog candy, you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie image on your design. Also be sure to use the keyword KKSC11 and KraftinKimmie (all one word) when uploading to any online gallery, such as Splitcoast.....we've got our own gallery there now, didja know???

So the image I used for my design is a new Cindy and Mindy image by our newest artist, Jean Grant! This one is called Shout Out and I think it's perfect for Valentine's Day or just telling someone that you love them! It comes with the bonus coordinating sentiment too!!!

I stamped the image on white Neenah cardstock using Memento ink and then stamped it again on my patterned paper. I coloured the image in using my Copic markers: E00, R20, C00, E42, E44, E47, RV32 and RV34. The base is a 5 1/4 ins square of chocolate cardstock and I used blue bling for matting. The dress is cut out of the same dp as the matting for the main image. I pop dotted everything, added the sentiment and tied some yummy green twill in a bow for the final touch!



This image, as well as 11 others, plus two sets of sentiments, will be available on Sunday, January 10th!! Keep your eyes peeled as there will be more previews of the awesome new images beginning on Friday!

Well, I'm off early this morning....on my way to WORK!! Can you believe I have to work on a holiday Saturday?? It's not right, I tell ya!

Gorgeous card, Kimmie - I love the bright fun colours and that lovely green bow.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog (and d'oh - I can't believe I read "piercing" for "piecing" - must work on my attention to detail!!!!)

Julie :o)
