Wise Men Still Seek Him

I've been DYING to share these stamps with you since they arrived on my doorstep over a month ago!!  That's probably the hardest part of this job....having all these awesome images from all of our incredible artists so far in advance....and NOT being able to share them with anyone!!  I just wanna show them to everyone!!!

Today begins the September Previews for the new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that will ALL be available in the Stamp Shop on Sunday!!  And today's previews feature the art of the sweet Cheryl Alger!  

The images Cheryl has created for the holidays have been put together in a fabulous set called the O Holy Night Nativity Set!  There are three beautiful images including Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus, the three Wise Men and a Shepherd guarding his flock!  You can use these images separately or put them all together to recreate the original manger scene!  This set ALSO comes with three coordinating sentiments!!






I chose to use the Three Wise Men for my design!  I pulled out my Wassail Basic Grey 6x6 pad and coloured this trio up in coordinating colours with my Copic markers!  The card base is kraft cardstock and I used a brownish red cardstock for matting.




The image was cut out using a Spellbinder and then embossed and while the image was still in the frame, I sponged the edges with Wheat chalk ink.  I stamped one of the sentiments that comes with the set for the front of the card and added some wrinkled hand dyed ribbon.




And lookie here....I also finished the INSIDE of the card!!  Haha!  I had been getting SO many requests for larger sentiments to include on the INSIDE of your Christmas and holiday cards, I just had to put together a full set of Christmas Interior Sentiments!  There are SIX fun larger sentiments to compliment any of your holiday stamps and help complete your greeting cards!!  

As you hop around to the Krafty Girls' blogs today you will see all the O Holy Night images in action on their gorgeous projects!  On some of them you will ALSO see another NEW set of sentiments that completes this set perfectly....it's called the Nativity Sentiments Set, which includes a total of eight phrases and bible verses to compliment our new images and all your other Christmas stamps!  ALL the stamps we're showing you this week will be available at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop on SUNDAY!!

Head on over to the KKStamps Challenge blog to see who has peeks to share today!  And while you're hopping today, be sure to leave comments at each stop because one lucky commenter will WIN the O Holy Night Nativity set AND the Nativity Sentiments set!!  And be sure to come on back tomorrow as we'll have MORE Krafty Peeks featuring the art of Emilie Goulet!!!!

Happy kraftin'!!
