Spring Is In The Air - Day 1 of 4

Penny Black has just released four new transparent sets for spring!  They are sooo cute!  

Over the next four days, I am excited to share a new stamp set each day with a card created from the set along with instructions.

For Day 1, Lulu skips in with a happy entrance.     

 Lulu and Friends

A view from the corner shows the texture from the Swiss Dots embossing folder and the sparkle from the Crystal Stickles.

Here is a look at the whole set (Lulu Spring) and all the fun images.  Lulu is definitely a “funny bunny”!

Make-It-Quick Instructions 
  1. Dry emboss the front of a white Les Petites card blank with Swiss Dots.  Highlight the raised dots with a Copic marker (B000).  Set aside.
  2. Stamp Lulu and friends on a 2 ¾ x 3 ½ piece of white cardstock in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.  Color images.
  3. Mat the stamped piece with a 2 7/8 x 3 5/8 piece of Summer Sun cardstock and then attach to the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam.
  4. Accent with a small bow and stickles.

See you tomorrow with more spring thoughts!
