Meet my friend, JEANNIE!!! This is one of the awesome new Traveling Girls from Annie Rodrigue for our July release......which happens to be TOMORROW!!! All six of these lovely ladies will be available at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop tomorrow and we'll be doing our usual Krafty Hop with prizes to celebrate!!
It's also time for a new challenge over on the blog and this week we need to finish the inside of our cards. This is definitely a challenge for moi!! I NEVER finish the inside of a card unless I am giving it away that very day!! Haha! I see my pal Michele always finishing her cards completely and they look so gorgeous and.....well, complete! I'm envious! So I took this challenge on!!
I used the new US travel girl, named JEANNIE!! I actually named her after one of my dearest stampin friends....and fellow Krafty Girl, Jeanne Streiff!! I love this gal in front of the Statue of Liberty! She looks like she's having a great day touring around, doesn't she?? I like how these images can be used on cards or also on travel scrapbook pages! Or if you didn't want the statue, you could just cut out the girl part of the image!
The papers I used just arrived on my doorstep this past week! They are from the Travel Forever 6x6 papers by Best Creation and I ordered them from One Crazy Stamper....another fabulous Canadian online store! I made a green card base, added some peach matting and used a diecut sheet with the scalloped edge, glitter and car image across the bottom. I added some wrinkled ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique, some button brads and a 'travel' diecut from the pack.
Then I finished the inside rather simply, with some glittery patterned paper across the bottom, attached with four brads and I stamped Jeannie again in coordinating ink, leaving room for a note to the recipient!!
So I hope you can join us for this week's super fun challenge and be sure to hop around the Krafty Girls' blogs to see how they finished the inside of their cards. And come on back tomorrow for our Release Day Krafty Hop with prizes and of course, all the new stamps will be available at the SHOP!!!
See you then!!
