SASSY SOPHIE.....
and MELINDA MERMAID!

And lastly is the OTTER-ly adorable stamp set....
FROM THE OTTER SIDE!!


I am a HUGE reader and you will notice I have done a few bookmarks recently.
When I saw these cuties I just knew I had to make one with these guys.
I used the new inks and the rubbing alcohol technique to create the background.
I edged with the ink pads to make it slightly darker.
The sentiment and hearts are stamped directly onto the bookmark.
The otter is stamped and colored then fussy cut out and glued onto the bookmark.

Also we have released TWO NEW Krafty Kolours Hybrid Inks in YUMMY YELLOW and MARVELLOUS MOCHA!! So be sure to add them to your stash!
ALL the new sets are NOW AVAILABLE individually BUT if you HAVE to have it ALL, we also have our
JUNE Gimme Kimmies Kit which includes all FOUR of the new sets together and at a discount! But only for a limited time and while supplies last!

Happy hoppin' and happy shoppin'!
