Stampin' with Friends!


This is a special day for me for several reasons!

First of all, I'm so excited to be joining the amazing design team at Card Positioning Systems!   What an honor!  CPS is celebrating its fourth anniversary this week, so not only do I get to play along with the fabulous, current team, but also with many of CPS' talented designer alumni!  It's gonna be a great week!  Sketch 205 is being sponsored by DRG Publishers.  I'm wavin' hi to Tanya, editor of CardMaker Magazine...I had the privilege of meeting Tanya at CHA in LA just a few weeks ago!

Reason #2 to be excited:  today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new FEBRUARY images, and I get to play along in their release blog hop!  I was tickled pink when Kimmie sent me this darling Patsy stamp set with her cute music notes skirt and fun FIFTIES songs sentiments.  That would definitely be perfect for a girl whose blog is called "With a Stamp and a Song!"

And if those two reasons were not enough to be excited (yeah, right!), get this:  you should have arrived here from the blog of my sweet friend, the amazing Beate!  Love you, girl!  I am honored to be your neighbor for today!  :)

You will get to see most of Kraftin' Kimmie's new images while you sit back and enjoy our Krafty Hop! You’ll see all the Krafty Girls, along with some very special Krafty Guests along the way!!  If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available!

We have lots of great new stuff to share with you today!
  • a new line of stamps called Krafty Quotes!!  These sets of stamps are perfect for scrapbooking or for the scrappier stamper....as these stamps can be used as the focal point of your creation, or in addition to your coloured images! We’ll have a new set each month!
  • Annie Rodrigue's FIFTIES themed stamps!!  There are seven images in the complete set and they are Danny, Fanny, Joanie, Judy, Jukebox, Patsy and Richie!!  Each one comes with TWO or THREE coordinating sentiment stamps!!  Let’s go to the HOP!
  • Steven Leary is helping us shake off those winter blues by helping us to THINK SPRING!! Miles and Maisie and some new friends are playing in the springtime sunshine!!! We have Bicycle Miles, Catching Butterflies, Rainy Day Miles, Springtime Maisie and Springtime Bunnies!!!  Stinkin’ CUTE!!
  • Gimme Kimmie’s Kits for those of you who just HAVE to have all the new images! We’ve grouped each line of stamps together and called them the "Gimme Kimmies Kits"!!! Instead of clicking on each image that you’d like, you only have to click once to pick up a Gimme Kimmies Kit AND it’s at a discounted price!! What could be better??
I stamped Patsy with Memento ink, colored and shaded her with Copic markers, and gave her glasses a little sparkle with a Copic Spica pen.  Her hair cracks me up!  It is salt and pepper, just like mine, although hers is definitely a lot pouffier and longer with that FIFTIES flip!  I used BoBunny papers, BoBunny chipboard, and a BoBunny button, along with a scrap of music notes paper and some hot pink ribbon to follow a flipped version of the CPS Sketch #205 layout.  

Kimmie, thank you SO much for inviting me to be part of your release hop! I've had such a great time!   I have long loved your stamps, and I am thrilled that this cute FIFTIES Patsy is my first one!  I adore her!  I am so glad that I got to meet you last year, and hope to see you again in Chicago this summer!  :)

So now I'm sending you off to Kimmie's blog, the last stop on the hop!  Are you ready for some new stamps?!
