Meet Daphne from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps- sneak peek and some blog candy!





















I know it was just last week that KK stamps tempted your wallet with the incredible tea party release but now its time to start the sneak peeks for our regular monthly release. I know- cruel eh! It's okay to eat Kraft Dinner for one more week instead of steak to pick up these schweet stamps. KIDDING!!! Maybe... Okay, I am tempting your tastebuds today with one of the stunning fairies being offered in this release. Her name is Daphne and I am in love with these lovely ladies!!! I coloured her with my copics and used my Peachy Keen paper pack from Kaiser craft and also some flowers from Kaiser's matching embellishment pack. I had this ribbon from my phase of buying every single American Craft ribbon package I could find. Still love that ribbon tee hee.

I have to thank Kimmie for help with this card. I wanted to learn how to do the shading around the edges of the nestie and the image is so wonderfully large it took a bit of searching to find one that would fit. Kimmie found this size nestie that would work and pointed out that if I did the fancy thing where I cut out a part of the wings I could actually use this one nestabilitie to cut it out. Okay. So of course I pretend I know exactly what she is talking about (with my hours logged blog surfing I should be an expert on all crafting matters =) and start cutting wildly. Which of course means I cut too far down. I make my eyes all puppy like and whimpering hand her my fairy to fix. Which of course she does. And because I cut way to far down so she had to cut a second layer to tape behind the first one to fix it. Then I made her do all my outside shading so I could 'watch and learn'. And she did it without pinching me which is what I would have done to her so I was very grateful tee hee. Thanks to Diana and Kimmie for another one of our fun days. My throat hurts when I leave and I am sure their ears hurt from all the listening. **not sure if you know this about me but I talk a.lot.*

So please head on over to the challenge blog to see what other new release stamps the girls are showing today. I will have another teaser tomorrow and Saturday then Sunday is the blog hop- yippee!

Oh I almost forgot...I have some blog candy! Okay didn't really forget just a dramatic pause. How about a KK stamp? I have one of my fave crafty Annie images- Lola DaVinci!

Please make sure you leave either your email addy or I can click on your pic/name to take me to a way to contact you in case you win. Please spread the word and don't forget to comment to win!

FibreJunky said...

Wow! So, does this mean you can now teach the rest of us how to do the shading around the edges? Your story about messing up sounds just like something I would do. The card is stunning.

Am I wierd if my fvourite part of the colouring is the grass? It looks so amazing. The shading on the edge of the nestie is neat; I'll have to try it once I get my first nesties from the postmistress (can't wait!) Love the Lola DaVinci.
