Hello Krafty friends! I am back from my little getaway with my hubby, Chris! After Kieran's 8th birthday on the 28th, Chris and I went to Las Vegas and we had a great time but didn't win any money on the slots this time, rats! My feet hurt from all the walking and I missed my kidos and I am so glad to be back home with them, but all-in-all we had a great time!
Today, I have another sneak peek of the January 2010 release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that will be available this Sunday January 10th and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is the sponsor of this week's challenge over at Cute Card Thursday! The challenge this week at CCT is "NEW" so that means anything new that you got in you stash, new stamps or make a card for a new baby or new year!!!! Now, if you join in the CCT Challenge a random winner will get 3 KKS stamps of their choice and you can even pick from the new January release.
So let me introduce you to Emelia...doesn't she have it goin' on!? I wish I looked this good on our flight home from Las Vegas, lol! Emelia is one of the "NEW" KKS stamps by Annie Rodrigue. Do you know what Steampunk is??? Well, Kimmie has described it perfectly here so hop on over to her blog and learn more about Steampunk...it's very cool!!! I just learned myself from Kimmie's explanation that the new Sherlock Holmes Movie is Steampunk...how cool is that!!! I'll have to go see it now for sure!
I also used my "NEW" stash on this card. I used this Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Mini Deck paper pad and Earth Love co-ordinating ribbon that I bought on Boxing Day. I used BG buttons tied on with hemp twine and the sentiment is from the New KKS Steampunk Sentiment Set that will be released on Sunday.
I stamped Emelia and her airplane accessory stamp on ATS Copic Quality cardstock and coloured her in with my Copics. I cut the image of Emelia out with my Nesties and I have been asked how I colour in the background. It is very easy! I just leave the image inside the die after I cut it out and use the die as a stencil. Then I use the Inkssentials Ink blending tool and foam pads by Ranger Inks on the Inkssentials Non-Stick Craft sheet. I make circular motions well inking around the image with Tim Holtz Distess inks or sometimes I use Metallic Rub-ons! On this image I have used Distress inks.
Well, Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at one of the NEW Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that will be available this Sunday January 10th. Make sure you come back and check out all the fun stuff we have planned for the new release!
