June Peek Day 2 - Fancy Florals


 Hey Everyone!!! 

Welcome back to Day 2 of our June peeks at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
What a day we had yesterday and today's peek is just as awesome!!!

We are thrilled to present the second set of stamps from our new artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen!
Her first set from last month called Bugs & Kisses we absolutely
amazing and we are sure you are going to love this new one!!!
Check out FANCY FLORALS!


This gorgeous set of blooms is so versatile and is perfectly designed for so many themes and reasons to send cards to the ones you love! There is a basket of blooms, a trio of single blooms and of course fantastically designed sentiments, which, just happen to fit inside the basket!!!

So on my card I used paper by Basic Grey (Plumeria), twine, prills (center of the flowers), loose glitter, Tim Holtz distress inks (for flowers), MME enamel dots, jewels.
I really loved the colours in this paper set so I went a bit crazy with the flower colours. I just loved how they turned out. I also molded them a bit so they stand out from the card.

Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop! The winner will be announced at the LIVE Online Release Party on Sunday evening, so don't miss it!

The first set we are peeking is from artist Annie Rodrigue! It's called FLOWER GIRLS! This fun set features two amazing flower girl images and also two coordinating sentiments!


Seeing as one of my fav flowers are lilacs I went with the girl standing as her dress reminded me so much of them!!! I have a bush outside my laundry window and when a breeze goes by I get such a beautiful smell!!!!

Below is my card on which I used the no lines technique. I went with purple as my base colour because they remind me so much of the lilacs. I accented the card with jewels, flowers, pearl sprays and some glitter tape.

What's springtime like down on the farm?? Lots of FUN according to these kiddos and animals! Here are TWO new sets from artist Cheryl Grant! First is COW'S IT GOING!!!
Secret Krafty Klub members will recognize this set as they received it in their mailbox back in March! And it will be available to everyone on Saturday! It features a large main image, an extra little puppy pal and four fun sentiments!

This set is very near and dear to my heart as my grandpa was a dairy farmer and would tell us stories about growing up on the farm and the cows. My mom even has a few good stories that we all love to hear. The cows had such personality and spirit. I can imagine my grandpa lucas as just feeding the cows in the fields!
