Kraftin Kimmie April Release Preview #1 Snow White

 
Welcome to the April Release of amazing new spring stamp sets at
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!...
The first stamp set we are sharing with you might look a little familiar because you may have seen a little peek of this gorgeous new set by artist Annie Rodrigue! It just happens to be the Secret Krafty Klub set that we sent out to the members in February!
It's SNOW WHITE!
What a precious scene of this sweet princess with her woodland friends! It's a beautiful big image to colour up along with three sweet new sentiments! And think of the fabulous scenes you could make with clouds and grass and some background dies and stamps!!
 
 
 
For my card, I decided to go with the traditional snow white colors.  I chose some matching patterned paper and colored my image to coordinate.  Then I layered the papers in the background, added a paper doily from my stash, and placed my image on top.  Then I created a little scene using some die cut clouds and sun.  A little 3D bird sticker and some paper flowers finish it off.

Hello!  It's Preview Day #3 and I'm here to share an adorable new stamp from Roberto's Rascals!  This is Dancing!  Isn't she just the absolute cutest!!!  I love her little party hat and her dance moves are just too, too cute! 
 
For my card, I chose some colorful birthday papers, colored my image to match using Copic markers and trimmed her into a rectangle.  I layered several of the patterned papers in the background and cut the cupcake paper into a circle and layered on top of a die cut scalloped circle.  Then I placed my image on top, added some enamel dots and a punched flag with button.  The sentiment is from the To Market stamp set and works perfectly.
