Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – February Release Hop & A Farewell

You may have heard that there’s a new Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps release out now.  If not, time to get up to speed, and what better way than to join in with the release day hop?

Before I tell you all about the release, I have some news.  I’ve been lucky enough to have been a Krafty Girl right from the start, and it has been wonderful sharing Kimmie’s krafty journey with her awesome stamp company.  It has been a real pleasure to work with Kimmie and all the Krafty Girls, so it was a tough decision to make, but the time has come for me to step down and take a breather.  Today’s card is my last as a Krafty Girl, although it certainly won’t be my last KKS card!  Thanks for having me Kimmie, it has been a blast.


This month’s release is filled with fun.  There are some brilliant literary characters from Annie Rodrigue, more cuties from Cheryl Alger and Emilie Goulet, plus trinkets and more!

The stamps are now available direct from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps in Canada,
and also from me in the UK at Quixotic Paperie!

On my card today you can see the awesome Sherlock Holmes image illustrated by Annie Rodrigue.  I thoroughly enjoyed colouring him, and he is perfect for a male card or indeed a card for any fan of Sherlock Holmes!


He of course, comes with the perfect sentiment, which I have used part of here.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with a combination of ShinHan Touch Twin Markers and Copic Markers.

On my card I have used another of the fun new gnomes from the Emilie Goulet sets!  LOVE these.  I actually had a more exciting card planned for today, but life got in the way so watch this space for something a little more gnome-tastic in the near future!

The image was coloured using ShinHan Touch Twin markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (I will edit in colour maps later on for those who are interested). Button from stash.  Paper is from my box of scraps.

That’s all from me!  Hope you’re enjoying this fantastic hop, and your next stop is the awesome MELANIE’S BLOG.

Wicked Birthday Wishes!

Today I’d like to share a fun card I created for Paul’s birthday earlier this month. Like me, he’s a fan of the Cheeky Cherry range from The Greeting Farm!  Really, it was great to have an excuse to ink one of them up – and I have promised myself I will do this more often, as I had SO much fun colouring her.

The stamp I used is from the Naughty or Nice set.  Absolutely love this one, very cheeky indeed!

I coloured her with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (see pic below for marker details).  The designer papers are a mixture of My Mind’s Eye Alphabet Soup Boy and Fancy Pants Saint Nick.  I created the sentiment on the computer and printed it out.
