Kraftin' Kimmie's Previews and Challenge 142!!


Well, here we are again, we are not only posting previews for Kraftin' Kimmie's August Release, but we have a challenge for you as well.  This week it's a sketch and a great one it is too!  Our fantastic Krafty Girl Pam Varnell is our hostess for this week's challenge and so she has provided the sketch for us.  I don't know how to get the sketch onto my blog here, but you will find it on Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.

Also, today is the day we are revealing the new Annie stamps for Hallowe'en and they are all gorgeous.  I am using Lola Lollipop, which incidentally is the image Pam is using, so the winner of this week's challenge will receive that stamp.

I used retired Brilliant Blue cardstock for my card base and my patterned paper is Tea at Elsie's from Kaisercraft.  I love the colours in these papers and have been hoarding the pad for a long time, but finally gave in to using it for this girly image.  For my partial circle a la sketch, I used my Spellbinders Butterfly Circles.  I used a Scallop Border Punch on the blue strip along the bottom and added some peach satin ribbon.  I used some Prima and other flowers in the top corner.  I coloured the image with Copics and doodled around the edge.  I stamped 'Sweet' on some of the patterned papers and cut it out using an MFT die.  This stamp comes with the sentiment 'We'll lick this together!'.

Now make sure you leave comments at each of our blogs for a chance to win win one of 3 Annie stamps that our generous leader Kimmie is giving away.

Have fun and we can't wait to see your creations with Pam's sketch!!
