A Present For You...another Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sneak peek!

Today we're sharing sneak peeks featuring a brand new set from Krafty Artist Cheryl Alger..."Birthday Lulu". The set includes three main image stamps and several coordinating sentiments just perfect for all your birthday cards.

I used the image with Lulu holding a tower of presents...isn't she sweet? :) The papers are from MME. She was matted on a Spellbinders Lacey Circle and the pearls were made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. The decorative border was made with a Martha Stewart border punch.



Lulu was stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copics. The sky was sponged in with blue ink and I added some grass. I paper-pieced her dress and shaded the paper-piecing with Copics.



Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Sock and bows: RV000, R81, R85, R59, C9  Boxes: R81, R85, R59, C9, BG72, BG75, BG78, C9, YG03, YG25, G17, G20



On the inside, I used one of the new "Birthday Trinkets" which will also be released this Sunday. (We shared previews of the Birthday Trinkets yesterday)

Beautiful card Melanie!! When you sponge in the sky, do you cover your image with something or are you just really careful?? I'm always scared I'm going to get ink on my image after all of the time I spend colouring it!!
