November Release and Krafty Hop.....the End!!

Welcome to the end of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Hop!! There was LOTS of eye candy along the way, wouldn't you say? If you just happened to stop by my blog today, I'm sure you will want to start at the beginning over at the Challenge Blog!

I have two cards to show off today!! The first features probably my favourite stamp from this month's Annie images.....that's because I named her after.....our artist Annie Rodrigue!!! Isn't she a cutie patootie?? This is Annie the Artist!! Wish I had her figure! Ha! It's a fun image to play with because she's left the painting blank so that you can put whatever you like on there! Check out the website for some samples of what others have done with the 'painting'!



I used my new Pixilicious papers from Cosmo Cricket and matching cardstocks from Stampin' Up. I stamped Annie on Neenah white cardstock using Memento ink, as I do all my images. And I coloured her up using my Copic markers.



The fun sketch is from the new Card Positioning Systems challenge for this week! Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring the blog this week and the sketch us just perfect for lots of our images, so be sure to play along!

I added some crocheted ribbon across the middle and attached some yummy Prima hydrangeas with brads. Then I finished it off by adding the sentiment that comes with Annie the Artist! (She also comes with a paintbrush accessory stamp!)

Next up is such a sweet image from the release of Steven Leary winter fun images!! This little dude is called Skating Polar Pal and I just think he is too cute! I used the new Bo Bunny papers for that wintry feel....along with an acrylic glittery snowflake!!



I'm enjoying playing with colouring up the polar bears in this release (there are also some ADORABLE polar bear cubs in Miles and Winter Friends) and learning how to make their fur come alive. I generally use the cool greys to shade a little bit on the inside of the lines and then flick my BG0000 around the outside of the image to make the polar white fur pop.



I added some Stardust Stickles across the bottom to make the 'ice' sparkly! I added some tiny white twill and tied it in a bow and then finished off the card by adding the Beary Christmas sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments set!

And that's it, that's all!!! That's the end of the HOP! I hope you have been inspired by all the amazing creations that you've seen along the way! Now you can hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop, because ALL the new stamps are available, along with the Gimme Kimmie's Kits!!

Happy kraftin'!
