Finally!! It's time for Kraftin' Kimmie's January Release and Blog Hop!!

Good thing it's time for Kraftin' Kimmie's January Release. I can't stand the wait any longer. The new stamps are just fabulous and I want to be able to use them and show them and also to give away cards made with them. The new stamps are now available on Kraftin' Kimmie's website. There are 12 new images, all of which have their own accessory stamp and there are 2 new sets of sentiments. One set has all sayings to go with the Steampunk images and the other set has sentiments to go with the Fairies

There are so many things to talk about, I'm afraid I'm going to forget something. I want to mention that Kimmie has a Special going on for the next 2 days. Every order will have a special something extra for you, also the first 50 orders of $75 or more will receive a free Oliver stamp as well. I love Oliver and since he is a winter stamp, you will still have lots of time to use him!! Of course, as usual every order over $100 will get free standard shipping. Good deals, huh!

Okay, now to my card. I used the beautiful Flower Fairy image, created by our incredibly talented Crissy Armstrong. She has given us 4 fairies for this release and they are all amazing!! I used Lavender Lace for the card base and my M.S. Playful Pink paper pad for the patterned paper. It was perfect for this soft, sweet creature. I matted the main PP on Certainly Celery, then onto the card body. I coloured in the fairy, then punched her out with my largest Labels 5 Nesties. I punched out another piece in the dotted green of my PP, turned it and set it behind the main image. I cut out a panel of the dotted pink matted on Lavender Lace and put it behind the green. I added some Prima Caboodles to the corners, some webbed type ribbon across the centre and I stamped the accessory stamp on Pretty in Pink using heat embossing with Winter Wonderland EP. I also used Stardust Stickles on the Lavender parts of her wings.

Of course this is also the day of our Super Blog Hop! You will see some great creations along your way, so be sure to start at the beginning, which is Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog. If you have landed here from Melanie's blog, then you are in the right spot. Now I've made you read all my ramblings, it's time to move onto our fabulous Andrea's Blog. There are also some awesome guests along the way, who have very kindly agreed to be a part of our Happy Hop. You can leave a comment on every blog along the way if you like as that will give you more chances to win the great Blog Candy Kimmie is giving away. I believe that there will be 3 selections randomly chosen from 3 of the stops, so get typing, maybe you will be one of them!!

Have a wonderful day, hope I haven't forgotten anything!

Blessings,
Diana
