It's release day at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!

Do YOU know what day it is??? It’s Krafty RELEASE Day at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!! And we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!! There are SO many incredible new stamps to SEE this month, so let’s get started!

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists! We’ve got something for everyone!! Lulu is back from Cheryl Alger.....we know how much you love her!! So we have a new set called PLAYTIME LULU! We also have TWO fantastic sets of adorable BUGGIES from Emilie Goulet called BUG BUDDIES 1 AND BUG BUDDIES 2!!! And of course we have an amazing new set of six WIZARD OF OZ inspired stamps from Annie Rodrigue! AND a fabulous OZ SENTIMENTS set to match!!!! Eeeeeeee!!!

You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our APRIL Krafty Hop! 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 these incredible 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!

And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!! The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time!!

Now if you've arrived here from our amazing Krafty Guest Taylor, then you're in the right spot! If not, then you want to start at the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog. You will find a complete list of the Krafty Girls and Guests, just in case you should happen to get lost along the way. I've created two cards for you again today. First up is the Wicked Witch from the new Wizard of Oz collection by Annie Rodrigue! I've also used one of the awesome sentiments from the matching sentiments set.


Isn't she fabulous??!!! I used some Graphic 45 paper matted with Bazzill Cardstock. I cut the Scarecrow out from the same paper and matted him with a layer of black cardstock as well, and then popped him into the corner. She is stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers (cool grays).


Next up is the beautiful Butterfly from Bug Buddies 1 by Emilie Goulet

Again, the butterfly is stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with various Copic markers to match the paper. The sentiment I used comes with the set too. The papers which I've had around forever, are Making Memories Chloe's Closet matted with Bazzill Cardstock. I used a Martha Stewart Punch around the Page set and added a die cut flower and a bow.


So now it's time to hop on to see my "oh so talented" Krafty Girl DT sistah Angie! Be sure to leave some love at every stop, cause Kimmie is giving away some rubber to TWO lucky random commenters!! Thanks so much for hopping with us today and good luck!! Now I'm going shopping to get some more of these fabulous new stamps! Hugs!

OH! And don't forget about Kimmie's moving sale that is still going on! You can purchase holiday gifts early, or mark some off your wish list! There are stamps available for as little as a dollar!!!!
