Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Preview 3, Blog Hop Tomorrow!!

Well, here we are yet again, I can't believe it's Saturday! Not only is it Release Weekend at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, but today is the day for our weekly Challenge. This week's Hostess is the fun and talented Carole. Carole would like us to make a Christmas card.

Today we are all showing the fabulous work of our amazing artist Annie Rodrigue. Annie has created a group of 6 gorgeous angels for us to use not only for Christmas cards, but they are great for all kinds of cards. For my card, I have used the lovely Elysia. I decided to go for a different style this time. I love to do heat embossing and have not really done any for a long time, but I thought it could work well for this image. I used gold embossing on a purple cardstock, added some gold stickles to Elysia's trumpet, a couple of star brads to the image layer, then matted it onto some gold paper. I embossed a small holly pattern all over a square of the purple, then matted it onto some more gold paper, then onto a card base of the purple. I embossed Hark!, which comes with Elysia on a scrap of purple, cut it out with my smallest Tags Trio Nesties, then cut out a gold border using the outside of the die. I put a gold brad on it, then attached some gold ribbon across the centre of the card.

Don't forget to visit the blogs of all the other Krafty Girls, you will find the links to the participating blogs on the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog. Be sure to leave a comment on each blog as there will be two winners from today, each one winning 3 of the Annie angel stamps.

O.K, so tomorrow will be our Krafty Blog Hop and the release of all these awesome Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

See you then,
Diana

  4. Hey Dianna! Hope you are keeping well, hun! I love your card to bits...such a fabulous way to use the new Angel stamps!!! This would be a great way to mass produce Christmas cards and would save time not having to colour. I love this idea so much...it is incredibly beautiful and rich looking! I love the gold on the royal purple too...so fitting for Christmas!!!
