Kraftin Kimmie Release Preview #3- You're My Hero

 
Welcome to Day THREE of the February Krafty Peeks
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!...
ALL of the new stamp sets you've been seeing all week will be releasing on Saturday afternoon at the LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY! I hope you can join us for all the fun, beautiful cards, giveaways and more!
Today we are sharing a studly new stamp set by our incredible artist, Annie Rodrigue! These guys are super macho and handsome, wouldn't you say?? It's YOU'RE MY HERO!
This fantastic set has TWO awesome main images plus FOUR coordinating sentiments!
 
 
 
For my card, I chose to work with this hunky fire-fighter!  First I colored my image using Copic markers and then fussy cut him using my Scan n Cut 2.  Then, I decided to try my hand at stencils (I've never used a stencil before).  I used some distress inks to create this brick wall and then cut it out using a circle die. I popped my image on top using some foam tape for dimension and added a little die cut fire to the side.  I stamped my sentiment, added some enamel dots, and a little punched flag to the corner.  I really love how this turned out and I think I'll be using more stencils in the future.  It was much easier than I was expecting :)
