Hooray, it's June Release Day and Krafty Hop!!



Whoopee, it's finally here!! It's June Release Day, therefore time to debut the beautiful Mermaids and Miles the Mouse. As you've probably already 'heard' me or one of the other girls say, we have 6 gorgeous Mermaids, 6 accessory stamps (even a few extra bonus stamps) and a fantastic Kimmie's Beachy Sentiment Set with over 20 sentiments in it. This mermaid kit is only available from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and only for a limited time. However, Kimmie is selling the kit for 20% off the regular price. These images were all designed by our wonderfully talented Annie Rodrigue. I think her creations keep getting better all the time!!

The Miles the Mouse line was created by our new artist Steven Leary. We are just so excited to have him join us at Kraftin' Kimmie's. It amazes me how much humour he manages to put into these simple cartoon type images. I just love them.

For my blog hop card, I used Surfboard Miles, isn't he adorable? I coloured him with my Copics, of course. I cut him out using my Nesties, then I cut the next size from Tangerine Tango. I pop dotted the whole layer onto some summer type DP, then matted them onto Taken with Teal. I put some teal buttons on, then some Tangerine Tango ribbon and I tied a starfish charm on the knot with some linen thread. I punched out the sentiment with my small oval punch and that's it.

Now to the blog hop. If you want to start from the beginning, go to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog. If you have already done that and you have landed here from Donna's Blog, you are in the right place. Be sure to leave a comment on each of our blogs as some lucky stampers are going to win packages of stamps from the New Release, so the more comments you leave, the better your chances. We have some fabulous guests for this months' Hop too, we even have both of our fabulous artists joining in with us. Oh, did I mention that for the first whole week of this release, every order will have a bonus package of accessory stamps? I know that's true because I helped Kimmie package them up.

Okay, you've put up with me long enough, I'll put you out of your misery, your next stop on the Hop is Annie Rodrigue, the super talented creator of the Moonlight Whispers line.

Happy Hopping,
Diana
