Let's Go Dotty!

Okay, so it's the last Preview card before the July Kraftin' Kimmie Release and Krafty Blog Hop!  Today we are featuring all the new stamps from our fabulous Annie Rodrigue. This month the theme is Hollywood and they are all just fabulous!!  I am using Gene, who of course does look a little like Gene Kelly, doesn't he?  I am a big Gene Kelly fan and have lots of his movies.  I love old musicals and have quite a collection of them.  Happily I can say that my darling granddaughter has inherited that love of old movies and we have spent many an evening watching them together since she was quite little.  She is now 20 and collects them herself.

This week's challenge is to use dots on your card.  They can be in your papers, in your ribbon or whatever.  Just have fun and a random winner will be chosen and will get to choose either Lana or Marilyn as our hostess Cheryl is using both those stamps on her absolutely awesome card!!

For my card base I used River Rock cardstock with some retired Close to Cocoa matted onto it.  I used S.U. Apple Cider patterned papers and did some stitching around most of the layers.  I added some River Rock Ribbon across the centre and added one of the new Birthday Trinkets, which are also being released on Sunday.  I finished off with a few brown half pearls.

To see the creations of all the other girls, go to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog for the list.  Don't forget to leave some love at all of the girls blogs for a chance to win some of the new Annie stamps.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the release of all the new stamps as well as some more creations with these gorgeous new images.  Join in our awesome blog hop and leave some comments for a chance at winning some more new rubber!!

See you tomorrow,
Diana

  9. Your card is just fabulous! I haven't seen this movie yet, but with so many great reviews on the old musicals I think I might try and watch them. The details in your card are great, I love: the stitching (something I am scared to try), the way the papers and images are tilted (I always have to have everything aligned or it drives me nuts), the circle brads and of course your coloring. You have opened my eyes to step out of my comfort zone and try something new. THANK YOU for the inspiration!
