Welcome back for our KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS January release BLOG HOP!
Today the Krafty Girls and our AMAZING guests are here to share some inspiration with all of the fabulous stamps we have been previewing over the last weeks. This month's release is truly BEAUTIFUL so I hope you enjoy today's hop!
This week we started off the release and welcomed back the talented Emilie Goulet with her preview set YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
Next I am sure you were ALL STEAMED UP for the newest Moonlight Whispers sets from Annie. This steampunk inspired set will surely get your creativity in gear!
Then we previewed a cute set from Cheryl Grant featuring those sweet kids Lulu, Lexi and Lucas. IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY is sweet and will be the highlight of many cards.
Finally, we added a second SENTIMENT set from our new (stamp) designer Becky. The WORDS OF INSPIRATION are just that, truly inspirational. The large size sentiments are great on their own or complement so many of the Kraftin' Kimmie images.
For my card today I used sweet Lulu from IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY and combined this with a sentiment from WORDS OF INSPIRATION. I had a couple CAS cards to show off this week, so it was time to go back to my layers, distressing and embellishments.
I used paper from Simple Stories Homespun and added a Maya Road photo frame and flowers and metal embellishments from Michaels.
Although it is hard to tell from the picture, I actually paper pieced this picture in three layers. I didn't want height so I didn't add the dimensional adhesive. The first layer is my background window frame and inside wall. The next layer is the branch and Lulu. The final layer is the cat and bird sitting on the window ledge. Just a subtle bit of depth to the picture.
A look at the inside of the card.
