My Spirit Animal is...... ANGIE!!!!!!

It's time for a Krafty Komeback!!! As you know, lots of our rubber stamp sets have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well, we've decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of your faves in clear! And today we're announcing a new one!

I used the older version of Angie for my Krafty Kreation today, and I actually combines a sentiment from the "Squishy Hugs" set and the original Angie set. I colored her up with my trusty Copic markers on some Express-it coloring stock.  I just love her so much!!! I make cards with Angie all the time because she is just so versatile.  I've used her for anniversary cards, and birthd…

The brand spankin' new February Release is in the Krafty Store!! Happy shopping'!  I love them all so much that I decided to use one of the Hero's for my Wonderful Wednesday card this week! (You can get your own Hero set here.) I used a bit of DSP from an Echo Park 6x6 pad that I had. and then just random scraps of colored card stock that I had in coordinating colors. I colored up this fun image on Express-it coloring stock and used my Copic markers.  The Axe and the Badge on his hat also have a bit of silver Wink of Stella overplayed on it.  I found the little axe charm in a kit that I bought of random charms.

When I found this paper stack at Hobby Lobby I knew it was the perfect stack for this card! My friend Leah sent me the ribbon (like a whole ton of ribbon) and the charm I got from a little kit I purchased online.
