A New Year, a New Blog Hop!

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Each months we have new stamps at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com) and this month is no different! For January, we have Greek Goddesses! I was so happy when Kim suggested this theme to me! You might notice that these stamps are more detailed when my usual designs. Something I wanted to try out! Feel free to comment on the changes! Do you like it? Or does it make the designs harder to tackle?

From the set, I decided to color Gaia!

December Blog Hop!

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

This month for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com) we have a very special set coming out! I recall getting quite a few request for something like this, and I was finally allowed to do an Alice in Wonderland inspired stamp set!

I took the time to color Alice, in Photoshop again. I wanted to play with texture a little bit also.

New stamp designs for October are now available at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com). And for this month, we are back with the Everyday Girls! We’ve tried out best to come up with fun new situations! And we hope to come up with more later on too!

September 2011 Blog Hop - Christmas Angels

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

It’s now September, and usually that’s the time for Christmas stamps at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com) And this year, I’ve got Angels to share with you all! I hope you will enjoy them all! Of course, like each month, I have colored one quickly in Photoshop! I can’t wait to have a little bit more time so that I can actually do a watercolor painting with one of the stamps designs. That would be a nice change!

Angel and bunny

August 2011 Blog Hop

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

August is already more than half way through! And that means, new stamps from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps ( http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com ) This month, we have halloween stamps! I must admit they are probably my favourite to design during the year. I just look creating the spooky, macabre characters. Hopefully, you will like them too! I decided to color Belinda Bones. It’s all Photoshop again, but it’s still different from how I usually color!

To month for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com ), we have traveling girls! These are the first 5, but I have a good feeling we might have more in the future, so don’t be shy to give us your suggestions! I will keep them in mind if ever the theme comes back again.

June Blog Hop!

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

June is already in and we have new stamps at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com). This month, I designed Asian inspired stamps! I must admit though, they are not all accurate costumes, I let myself go a little bit, but I hope you will still enjoy them.

I did again a little bit of Photoshop magic with the following design as I only manage to do it last minute. I’m crossing my fingers that you will get more updates from me soon, along with colored designs that are a little more elaborate since I will soon have a helper at the studio! (how exciting!)

May 2011 Blog Hop!

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

It seems like the only thing I manage to update on this blog these days are the hops for the new stamp releases. I really need to find a way to keep new illustrations coming soon. So much work is pilling up! And I am thankful for it every single day, but gosh it would feel great to do a few illustrations here and there for myself too! (don’t you agree?)

This month at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com) we have sporty girls! One of those ladies is even inspired by the sport that’s keeping me into shape weekly: kickboxing! She’s not the one I colored today though. I did this lovely lady instead:

April 2011 Blog Hop!

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

Is it already the time for a new hop? And I am the first one to start the hop on top of that! Yikes! The pressure! Hopefully you will all like the new designs for this month at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps (http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com) ! They are fairies!

I decided to do again a little bit of Photoshop magic with this one and I guess I cheated a little bit when I colored the wings. I don’t know if it would be possible to do something similar with stamps. I hope you will still enjoy it!

Of course, like every month, there are stamps to win! To get a chance to win, visit and comment on each blog of the hop! Since this is the first stop, no need to send you back at the beginning so the next stop is Krista: http://craftylittlepigtails.blogspot.com/
