Day 2 of Kraftin' Kimmie's July Release Previews!

Hi everyone and it's Thursday, time for the second lot of previews for Kraftin' Kimmie's July Release.  Today we are showing some more Lulus from the fabulously talented Cheryl.  This month we have Birthday Lulu, which as usual come in a set of 3 and they have 5 adorable sentiments to choose from.  I am using Lulu's Party Dress, doesn't she look so cute and happy with herself in it?

I do have to tell you that in real life, the image frame and the sentiment layer are much closer to the tones of the patterned papers.  I just could not get a natural looking photo.  Anyway, I coloured Libby with my trusty Copics and sponged around the die frame with a green chalk ink before removing the cardstock.  I then took the die and drew around the outside on the pink cardstock to create a frame for the image layer.  I used some lovely Daisy D Sweet Baby Jane patterned papers.  I have had them a long time, but I just love them.  I matted each layer of paper onto some light green cardstock and the base is white.  I heat embossed the sentiment on pink, using Winter White embossing powder.  I wanted to keep the look soft, so I didn't use black ink.  I added some lovely sheer white ribbon and a bow across the centre and finished it off with a couple of ice cream cone embellies on the right.  I was quite happy with this one and I had fun making it.

Now go and check out the blogs of all the other Krafty Girls and make sure you leave a comment at each of our blogs for a chance to be the lucky winner of a set of these lovely Birthday Lulus.

You will find the list of all the participating Krafty Girls on Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.  Some of us will be back tomorrow with creations using some more of the July Release stamps.  I will be back on Saturday and you won't want to miss seeing what the girls have done with Saturdays stamps. 

All of these babies will be available on Sunday morning at Kraftin' Kimmie's Shop when we will have another great Krafty Hop and some of you ladies will win some more new stamps.  So keep watching and keep commenting.

See you on Saturday,

Blessings,
Diana
