Beauty in pink:
Choose A4 cream card folded in half as base card, didnt have a nice shade of pink to go with the colours.
Paper is from pink petticoat downloads. Lovely colour this one, edged in peel offs.
The stamped image is coloured in with pro markers, choose a lovely bright pink for her dress, perfect night out dress, the lips were a bit hard to do as the point isnt fine enough to get right in but done my best. Edged the peace again with the ruler and pro marker used on her dress, then added the glitter line with a sukura star dust pen. Secured ribbon on the back before tying the bow at the front so it wouldn't move, then layed it on main card with a few foam pads.
Over all this is another one I like now its finished.

Motivet stamp:
I found these stamps from a company in canada, I really fell in love with them.
Choose ruby/burgandy A4 card stock folded in half, laying papers from the pink petticoat downloads. Love these papers handy if you dont have a colour to go with what your doing, edged it again with peel offs.
Coloured her in with just regular soft quility pencils, then blended with baby oil (sansdor is the other product available for this but I feel baby oil is just as good and alot cheaper) edged the image with my ruler and a marker pen. Giving it that faux mat and layered effect. Wrapped a peace of lovely ruby ribbon round this before laying it on card.
The flower was from my stash.
I like this one as well, turned out really nice.

Lets do the garden:
Choose a light green A4 card folded in half for base card.
The paper is from pink petticoat download package, not sure the colour name, its meant to be a green tone, but I find it is very hard to see on the photogragh. I edged this paper with corner peel offs as it looked a bit boring just stuck down.
The image is a stamp not sure her name, coloured her in with pro-markers, orange, cyan(blue), green, and terricota for her hair. Cut the edges with my scapolled scissors, then placed ruler half a cm away from edge and went over expossed card with a dark green pro marker, then added a thin edge with a sukura star dust pen for extra depth.
Layed this on some card stock put through my cuttlebug folders, tied ribbon round this before securing it down. Layed this on the card at an angle that way didnt have to worry about it lining up perfect.
Over all I like how this one turned out, even tho the papers arent quite the right shade.

Another set done with the nesties, used yellows and green on one, and brown with a pale pink on the other. Didnt have any brown or pale pink ribbon so used the gold tone one from my box, hope looks ok.

Playing around with my nestie's.
Made these cards using my nestabilities in my cuttlebug. The images are from a topper sheet I had in my folder for ages, havent been able to do much with them so thought they would work well with the nestie layers. The base card was a bit tricky, getting the die to cut through booth sides didnt always work, so had to hand cut some of them. Over all I think they turned out not bad.

Kelseys Birthday card.

Blue card stock. A4 gate fold. Image new anya stamp from a lovely craft buddy, coloured her in with pro markers not sure colours tho. Layered her on blue card stock. Backing papers are dove craft 6 X 6 pad, used page for the main backing hearts on stems then used a section from another sheet in the pad to do the border along the top. I used my new cuttlebug die that I got at weekend to do the swirls. Then put her name and age on a nestie I had sitting in my basket. Hope she likes it.
