{KKS Release} Lulu's

Today the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Girls and Guests are showing the newest Lulu's by artist Cheryl Alger.....I love these cute little girlies! They are so adorable:) See what I mean?


My sewing machine was threaded with black thread and honestly, time was short today, so I went for an oldie, but goodie....Paper-piercing! I hardly ever do this technique, and I'm not sure why, cuz I do love it, and it couldn't be easier to add a little somethin-somethin to your card!


Here you can see some dimension...the umbrella is popped up on one side with dimensionals. I added 3 baby brads where her coat clasps were. Crystal Effects was applied to the umbrella, puddle and glaze pen was added to the raindrops, frogs eyes and tongue. I used dimensional pearls for her hair 'baubles' (that's right Michele, baubles! lol;). I covered the umbrella handle with silver spica pen and green spica jazzed up Froggy! I used silver on her boot buckles as well. Loads of little details on this otherwise simple card!
Little SU! blue buttons were threaded with linen thread bows and anchor the sentiment strip.


Okay- now skidaddle over to the Krafty Blog for links to the complete list of designers previewing today....and don't forget to leave some love along the way....some lucky commenter is going to win Cheryl's new Lulu set! See you tomorrow for another KKS preview and a brand new iSpy Sketch Challenge!
