I also have something exciting to share!!! I have FOUR new incredibly talented stampers to introduce to you!! They are part of the Junior Kraftin' Kimmie Design Team!! I'm so thrilled that they have joined our team and can't wait to introduce them to you. So before I show you everyone's inspirational cards for the challenge, I'm going to post their bios!! Please meet the girls:
AINSLEIGH: Hi, I’m Ainsleigh! I am ten years old and in grade four. Dance is a big part of my life, and I spend many hours a week studying both Ballet and Highland Dancing. I also love anything “artsy”! I love to sketch and create my own characters. A little over a year ago, my mom started stamping and colouring with Copic markers. We enjoy creating cards together. Copic markers are my favourite way to colour stamped images! I love Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, and am very excited to be a part of the Junior Krafty Girls Design Team!! Thank you to Miss Kimmie for letting me participate. I look forward to getting to know the other Junior Krafty Girls and to sharing my cards with you!
HANNAH: Hannah is 10 years old and in Grade 5. She started colouring stamped images and making cards about 1 year ago. She really enjoys spending time with her Mom, Tara Godfrey, colouring and chatting in her craftroom. She also likes school especially art, gymnastics and taking family vacations. She also has a blog, Lucky Girl!!
JAIME: Hi my name is Jaime and my mom is Andrea. I wanted to be one of Kim's Junior Krafty girls because Kim is AWESOME and I love her stamps. I enjoy making card designs and putting sparkles on everything. I also like long walks in the sunset lol!!!! My mom normally doesn't let me use her copics unless it's for Kraftin' Kimmie or a crafting emergency.
KAITLYN: Hi this is Katie and my mom is Andrea. I called Kimmie and asked if I could be on her Design team because I really like to design cards because it's fun. If you practice it gets easier and easier and you find you come up with more good ideas for each card. It's also really fun to decorate the cards with flowers and stickles! Kimmie likes to think I am her daughter because we are a lot alike. I even made my mom flowers out of tissue paper for her birthday because she loves homemade presents the best. Every time I go into my mom's craft room I can't resist making a card.
Say hi to the girls and check out everyone's awesome cards!!!
