We've got a NEW Artist!!!

Happy Thursday, stampers!!! Guess what today is?? It's Day One of our June Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! AND we are super thrilled to introduce you to the newest addition to our artistic crew..........EMILIE!!!

You can learn more about Emilie over on the KKStamps blog! Just WAIT til you see the images she has drawn for her very first release!! The Krafty Girls and I have been having a blast playing with these BEACHY themed stamps!! We've got some really awesome characters for you to see!!



My card features the footloose and fancy free......DOLLY the Dolphin!! Heehee! Just looking at her makes me want to smile! I knew immediately which new papers I wanted to use with her.....these are from the 6x6 pad of Beach Babe by Fancy Pants. So fun!

Right off the bat, I knew that I didn't want Dolly to be coloured like a normal dolphin....in grey. So the first time I coloured her, I made her green. Didn't look so hot. One of the other Krafty Girls suggested that Dolly's momma had an affair with a frog. Hmph. How rude. So this time I coloured her PINK!! And I think she looks awesome!! I sponged in some waves with blue ink and matted her on a green scalloped circle.



Then I made a circle card using my CM cutting system from Kraft cardstock. I added some blue ribbon and a tiny bow and then a flourish of rhinestones. Lastly I used one of the awesome sentiments from the Mermaid Sentiments set on pink cardstock and cut it out using one of my new ribbon banner Nesties. You will find that both the Mermaid and Beach sentiments set are PERFECT for Emilie's new summer stamps!!

Don't you love Dolly?? I think she makes fun summer cards, invitations and can't you just picture her on a summer, poolside scrapbook page??? Love her! And I can't wait to colour her up in other colours......like purple!!! Dolly will be available, along with all our June stamps on Sunday, June 12th at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!

Now hop on over to the KKStamps blog to check out who else has a summery creation to share! **And be sure to leave comments at each stop because one random commenter will WIN the ENTIRE release of Emilie's new stamps!!!! Woohooooooo! Then come on back tomorrow for some more peeks!!

Happy kraftin'!

If this is a repeat message, forgive me. It's been some time since I entered my first attempt and I think maybe there was a glitch. Just wanted to comment on the amount of movement you achieved in that small card, with the skirt and lei shimmying with Dolly and the fish swimming around and the flourish. Great job! TFS

Angela said...
