Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Sneak Peek and Challenge Day!!

WHEW! I had a little bit of scare yesterday! I lost my blog for a bit and couldn't sign into blogger! I figured it out about midnight last night and was finally able to access everything again.. I'm telling you, that was NOT a fun time!! But it's all good now, and it's Saturday which means it's Day Three for Sneak Peeks of the new December stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie AND it's time for a new weekly challenge as well!!!  Featured in our sneak peeks today are the new AWESOME stamps from Annie Rodrigue!  For the new challenge, we've got a fabulous sketch from the wickedly talented Krafty Girl Michele!


If  you don't know yet,  the theme of Annie's stamps this month is Alice in Wonderland!! FABULOUS!!!  For my card today, I've used the Dormouse! Can you see that he's hiding Alice in the teacup (see her hair that's giving her away?)


The image is stamped with Memento ink onto Cyrogen White and then colored with Copic markers. I used circle and petite scalloped circle Nesties to cut out the image, and then machine stitched around it. I've also used one of the awesome Wonderland Sentiments on my card!  The DP's are Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland. matted with Bazzill cardstock.  The scalloped part of the sketch was created using a Magnolia Doohickey Die.


The two cutouts behind the Dormouse were simply cut out from another one of the DP's and then matted onto cardstock. I added a Tim Holtz metal corner and cut a couple tabs with the Cricut and the Fabulous Finds cartridge. Those were finished off with a couple threaded vintage buttons.  I added some crinkly ribbon topped with another buton and some twine.


A little peek at the inside too. There is a lot of machine stitching on this one! Today is the last day for sneak peeks, which means the full December release will be available for purchase tomorrow at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! Believe me, I will be putting in my order! LOL!  Be sure to visit all the Krafty Girls and Guests and leave some love at each stop! You can find them by visiting Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog. Kimmie will be providing TWO lucky commenters with a prize of three of Annie's stamps!!! So what the heck are you waiting for??!! LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back tomorrow for the big Blog Hop to celebrate the release! You won't want to miss it!! Hugs!

This is so cute Sharon, I love it! The teacup is coloured so that it looks like you could reach out and touch it!
That is scarey stuff when you lose your blog. It happened to me a few months ago and I was in a terrible panic but I did manage to get it back too.
