Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 82 and June release Day 3...Wishining you Tranquility!


Hello Krafty friends! So are enjoying all the gorgeous creations from the new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps JUNE release!? Well, you are going to LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new Annie Rodrigue Asian inspired collection that the Krafty Girls are previewing today!

Today is also Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge day, Krafty Girl Angie, has set the challenge and it is a fabulous one....24 Krafty Karat GOLD...so that means Angie would like to see GOLD used on your card or creation in some way! Isn't that a fabulous challenge and it goes so nicely with the 6 new Asian inspired stamps that we are sharing today! Angie has made a stunning card with Natsuko (the same stamp that I have used today too) and if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and enter the challenge this week by linking your card up on the KKSC blog, then you will be entered into the random draw to win your very own Natsuko stamp! So I really hope you can join the KKS challenge this week!  

Also, Kimmie, is very generously giving away 3 of the new Asian Inspired stamps by Annie to 2 lucky, random winners. All you have to do is comment on the Krafty Girls blogs and Kimmie will randomly pick the winners from all the comments and will announce it on the KKSC blog tomorrow.

And don't forget....tomorrow, Sunday, June 12th, is Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps RELEASE DAY and that means we will have a Krafty Hop, as always!!! So you won't want to miss all the gorgeous cards by the Krafty Girls and Guests and there will be Krafty rubbah up for grabs and most importantly all the new June stamps will be available in the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!
So for my card today I have used Natsuko and I just love her to bits. She is so sweet! I coloured her with my Copics and then cut the image out with my Nesties and left the image in the die and inked with Milled Lavender Distresss ink.  For my card I used BasicGrey Wisteria, well, what little of it that I had left. I paper pieced the lantern and Natsuko's dress. I used my Gold Smooches to colour her slippers and the tassel on the lantern. Then I added some Prima flowers with American Crafts gold pearl brads, BasicGrey Wisteria painted brads, BasicGrey Bling, and a gold butterfly. The ribbon is from my stash and I used my Open Scalloped MFT Die-namics border die. The sentiment actually comes with, Akiko, one of the other stamps from this release. Natsuko come with the sentiment, Never forget Kindnesses.

Here is the inside...the sentiment is from Kimmie's Everyday Sentiment set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card today! I hope you can join the 24 Krafty Karat challenge this week and don't forget to leave those comments, as 2 commenters will be randomly selected to win 3 of the new Asian inspired Annie stamps! Come by again tomorrow for the Krafty hop as we will have more gorgeous previews, more stamps up for grabs and all the stamps will be available in the KKS on-line shop!

See ya then!

Happy Stampin'!

Terrific colours & I love the way you have used the stitching on the ribbon & your scallops to echo the pattern of the paper in the horizontal layer (eye-catching on the inside). the paper piecing on the lantern & her dress is quite striking.
