Who's ready for the first Kraftin' Kimmie release of 2012?!

Good morning and welcome to round one of the January 2012 sneak peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! The release day is this Sunday, but over the next three days (including during our weekly challenge on Saturday) you can catch some fabulous sneak peeks over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog! Each day, we will feature new stamps by one of the talented Krafty Artists so that you can have your wish list all ready to go come Sunday. :)

Today we are introducing a fabulous set by Cheryl Alger called the "Lovely Lulu Set". (These will only be sold as a complete set.) I fell in love with this cute little tyke the second I laid eyes on her. The set includes three main image stamps and several coordinating sentiments. For my card today I used the stamp of Lulu and her teddy in the tub...how adorable are they??!! I paired them up with some pretty My Minds Eye Madison Ave papers, cut a couple of layers with Spellbinders Labels 18 (a Christmas gift from by best friend Amanda!!), added a bow tied with my Bow Easy and a button. The paper edges were all sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20  Hair and bear: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Tub: C00, C1, C3, BV31, BV23, C5  Bows: RV000, R81, R83, R85, R89  Bubbles: RV000, B000, BG10, YG11


On the inside of the card, I used one of the sentiments included in the "Lovely Lulu" set.
