Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...May Release...Preview #1!


Hey Krafty friends! It's time for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps May release sneak peeks! This month Annie has created a fun release for the Moonlight Whisper collection of stamps, they are just "beachy"...I know you are going to love 'em! They will be available at the Kraftin' Kimmie online store on Sunday May 16th and we will have a big ol' "beachy" blog hop, as per usual, that day too, so mark it on your calendar!
The card I have to share with you today features my fave girlie in this release, Eleanor! I just think she is sooooooo adorable! Don't you just love her "old school' beach attire?! I sure do! I love her cute pose too!
I made my card base 6x6 from American Crafts cardstock and I got to use up some old stash too! I thought this Daisy Bucket Designs paper was bright and fun for a beachy b-day card!
I picked up an Imaginisce Snag'em stamp at Micheals and it just so happened that this flourishy flower motif matched the flowers on Eleanor's bathing cap perfectly! I coloured the flowers with my Copics and paper pieced Elanor's swim suit with the Daisy Bucket paper! I cut out the image with my circle Nesties and left the image in the die and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I added the requisite American Crafts ribbon and a little bling that all my cards seem to have,smile...the tag is a QK tag and the sentiment is from the Kimmie's Beach/Summer sentiments set that co-ordinate perfectly with the May release images.
Here is the inside....the sentiment it's a combination of the Beach/Summer sentiments in the new May Release and "birthday" is from the Kimmie's Everyday Sentiment set!
Thanks so much for stopping by and come back tomorrow as I will have another sneak peek to share with you! Hop on over to the KKS Challenge blog and Kimmie will have a list with links to all the Krafty Girls previews! Don't forget that Saturday is our KKS Challenge day and the Krafty Girls will be sharing more previews and then Sunday is the big "beachy" blog hop...you don't want to miss the fun, now, do you?!
Have a Stampin' Great day, friends!
Hugs,
