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 stampers are each going to WIN a package of today's stamps!


I used Sherlock Holmes for my card and kept it pretty simple.  I always have trouble embellishing my masculine cards!  I paper pieced his hat and cloak with some plaid papers from an Echo Park This & That paper pad.  I also used co-ordinating papers for the other layers.  Easy peasy!


ALL of our FEBRUARY stamps will be available TONIGHT at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!  We'll be celebrating tonight at our ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!  It's over at our KKS Facebook fan page! Join us for all the fun!! You can find more details here!

OH and here's something exciting!!! The FIRST 30 orders of $30 or more after the new stamps are released tonight will receive a package of Pearl or Glitter Candy Dots by American Crafts for FREE with their order!!! Just 'cause we loves ya!! See you TONIGHT!

Oooh love the plaid paper piecing it works so well with the image. I also love the vintage papers this card almost looks like it could be a cover on a book

So masculine...I find it a challenge to do masculine cards AND you have done it so well. The papers just complete it... all I can think of is Sherlock's study and I think keeping the embellishments away helped make it what it is. You are all so talented, really loving the hop. Thank you!
