JUNE KRAFTY PEEKS!!! Day One!!

OH! It's here! It's here! It's finally time to share Krafty Peeks of the new June images!! And we are SUPER excited!!!

First off....we are THRILLED to introduce you to a brand new artist!! His name is Steven Leary and when I first saw his artwork on his website, I fell in love with his cartoony images! I continue to be amazed at how much humour is in each of his simple lined drawings! They just make me smile!

Here is a little about Steven:

Steven Leary has loved cartoons all his life and even when he studied art in school, he has always had a comic influence in his style. In spite of this, he earned a BFA in Studio Art - Drawing and Painting, worked as a Graphic Artist and a Studio Photographer. He has sold his original designs in both Arts & Craft Shows and Online to an international audience.

He uses all types of media, from airbrush, watercolor, colored pencil, inks, acrylic paint and computers.

"Creating images for rubber stamps are interesting to me because it brings a certain interactivity between my work and the viewer that's not there normally and I'm excited to see what amazing creations they become a part of.”



And we have four adorable images from Steven to release this month featuring.....Miles the Mouse!!!



Secondly.....who remembers our Spring Tea Party Kit?? I know lots of you were nuts over our very first kit and the fact that you get all these fantastic images, accessory stamps and coordinating sentiments all in one set AND at a discount! Well, guess what???? Annie Rodrigue has done it again!!! This month we have for you..........the Summer Mermaid Stamp Kit!!!

This incredible set, perfect for your summer cards and scrapbook pages, includes SIX large main Mermaid images, SIX matching accessory stamps (PLUS some extras....if I could fit more on the plates when the rubber was manufactured, I did and you will get doubles and extra accessory stamps because of that!!) AND a set of 21 coordinating sentiments!!!

The Summer Mermaid Kit is ONLY available at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop as of Sunday and only for a limited time. The images may be released as individual images in the future, but for now, it's only as a kit and it will be available for 20% OFF too!!!

Sooooooo.....if you wanna see some incredible stuff featuring Miles the Mouse and all of Annie's Mermaids, that the Krafty Girls have been chompin' at the bit to show ya..........git hoppin'!!!
