IT'S TIME!! IT'S TIME!!!

Yaaaaaaaaaaay! The day is finally here!! I've been waiting SO long to show the incredible June images to you! Honestly, it feels like for-EVAH!!! Okay, I MAY be a tad dramatic, but I've been DYING to share them!!! Your jaw will drop when you see 'em....no joke!!

Kay, so first off we have a brand new artist at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! I discovered Steven Leary online on his website and was struck by the amount of humour in his paintings and how these simple images made me giggle! So I found a little character in one of his drawings and asked him to create some stamps featuring that dude! He's a super cute mouse and I've named him MILES!!! This month, he's doing some fun summer thangs......like surfing, playing in the sand, suntanning and going snorkeling!!! I can't wait for you to meet him!! heehee!



So I'm sharing Sandcastle Miles with you today!!! I stamped Miles on Neenah cardstock, cut the scene out with my Nesties and coloured him in using my Copic markers. The card base is Kraft and I used Tangerine Tango and Certainly Celery for matting. The cool patterned paper is from a bunch of coordinating summer papers that I got last year from Inque Boutique. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and added some wide twill and a bow. The finishing touch is the sentiment I used and it's from the new Mermaid sentiment set!! What??? I haven't mentioned Mermaids yet!!? OH! Well, let me tell you about them............*giggle*



Our second surprise is that we are releasing our second KIT!!! yeppers! So many of you loved the Spring Tea Party Kit that we've done it again!! Annie Rodrigue has created the most incredible.......MERMAIDS!!!! Just WAIT 'til you see 'em!!! You'll pee.....I'm not even joking!!!

The Summer Mermaid Kit comes with SIX gorgeous Mermaid stamps, SIX different accessory stamps (PLUS some bonus extra accessories.....if I could fit anything extra on the plates as the rubber was manufactured, I did and you'll be getting some doubles and extra accessories because of that!! Waste not, want not!!! Especially when it comes to stamps!!!)....AND you'll also receive a coordinating set of Mermaid sentiment stamps (there are 21 phrases in the set), made specifically for summer fun!

This set is ONLY available at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop and only for a limited time. Eventually they may be released as individual images, but for now they are only sold as a kit. AND when you order it, you get 20% OFF the kit!!! YES!! New rubber AND a discount!! What could be better??



Soooooo...here is my card featuring the beautiful Arianna!! Isn't she beautiful and those seahorses.......SO CUTE!!! The scrumptious patterned paper that I used, I found at Scrapfest a couple of months back. I saw the beautiful foil papers and knew they were perfect for my mermaids! So I used the paper as inspiration and coloured the image in with coordinating Copic markers. I used my Nesties to cut it out and emboss the frame, then while it was still in the frame, I sponged in the waves. I fashioned a little 'wave template' from a scrap piece of scalloped paper and sponged with some blue chalk ink to create the background for Arianna and her little friends. I used some frilly orange ribbon, some big yellow brads and added a lovely starfish charm! The sentiment is one from the fantastic set of Mermaid sentiment stamps and I finished it off by adding a little silver fish brad!

Now listen, I realize she ended up looking a lot like Ariel! It was totally unintentional, I swear! I was just colouring to match the papers....must have been subliminal. I love The Little Mermaid...it's one of my favourite Disney movies....but I haven't seen it in years. It was a happy little accident, honest!



Whew!! That was a lot for one day, don't you think?? So much excitement and fun! But wait!! You have to hop around to the Krafty Girls' blogs too!!! They've got even MORE krafty goodness to show ya!!! Go on!!! Their links are in my sidebar....or go to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge blog to see who's got stuff to show ya!

See you tomorrow!!!
