See the spica glitter in her scarf and boots and the silver stickles on her earrings and chain belt?!


Here is our sketch!



I wanted to give you all a little tip on how I made the curved sentiment. You've probably heard people talk about being able to bend clear polymer stamps to get those nice, curved sentiments. Well, with some modifications to your rubber stamps, you can do it too!
Simply snip the edges of the sentiment (you have to do this or it will spring back into shape right away!). Here's a pic so you know what I mean:


Just snip so that the bottom and top snips are staggered (your stamp will go right back to normal when you take it off the block- so don't worry, you aren't wrecking anything!). I then cut out a piece of scrap paper with the same die that I used to cut my image. Since these are rubber, you can't see through them, so I recommend doing this to get the best idea of how your image will looked once stamped. As you can see, I didn't like the top one (thought it was to curved and didn't follow the oval properly) so I readjusted and stamped again on the other side. Perfect! Ready to stamp on the image oval!



Below you will find all the Krafty Girls and Guests who have goodies to show you today and while you're visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because TWO lucky ladies are each going to WIN a package of today's stamps!! Woohoo!!!

ALL of our OCTOBER stamps will be available TOMORROW at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!! So be sure to come on back to enjoy our Release Day Krafty HOP!!

Oh and P.S. There will be a SPECIAL stamp that you haven't seen yet, being released tomorrow as well, so be sure to check out tomorrow's Krafty Hop to see if you can find it!!!

Happy hoppin'!!
