April Krafty Peek Day 1

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my card for Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop. Thanks! =)

Hello, all! It's preview time at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps once again! We are showcasing Cheryl Alger's adorable Playtime Lulu set today.


The Playtime Lulu set comes with three images and four coordinating sentiments.


I used painter Lulu for my card. She is stamped and colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then cut out.


I created the background by simply laying down colors with watercolor crayons then activated the colors with a water brush. It's super quick and easy to make and it's just perfect for this artistic Lulu! =)

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to go and check out what the other Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests created using this lovely set here. Remember to leave comments along the way, because one lucky commenter will win this new stamp set! All new stamps will be available on Sunday, April 22nd at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.



Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
