Opps forgot your Birthday card:

Using orange slightly embosssed card stock cut to measure 14cm square. Added digital download backing paper design, I think from digiwebstudio but not sure bad memory. Image is one of the gorjuss girls rubber stamps, cut down using the second largest die in new nestie set, then using the largest die cut matching card stock to layer her on, she is coloured in using pencils then blended with baby oil. Added the message with peel offs saying oops its late, didnt have enough space so stuck with this short but kinda funny message, and cut out ovals from nestie. The flower I am not keen on but this one is only orange ones I have. This one was for a buddy on docrafts, hope she liked it.

Baby Jami-Leigh:

Using cream light weight card stock so would go into printer, after fighting with heavier card. Computer generated the message on the front of the card. Embossed litle frames using my Glitter girl keep sake board, the image is a digital download from Crafts You Prints site printed onto matt photo papers to keep the look of the image. Added peel offs round the edges as the image didnt fit the frame like it said it would on the site, so had to gradually trim it to fit, cutting circles and ovals isnt my strong point, so edge a bit untidy. Added a beautifull its a girl ribbon from my stash, secured with high tack red ds tape. Added the corner peel offs as felt it was a bit too plain. The reciever loved this card as her babys name was on the front. Very pleased with my work for change.

Mum Card:

A4 burgandy card stock, side fold. Having a play with the nesties again, using the tiny die cut out while ovals to add letters, stenciled the letters using a brass stencil, then went over the pencil with a stardust pen. The image is from a set of 3 lady stamps I purchased on ebay, they are stunning to colour, used promarkers for most of the design but a sharpey pen for the hair. Went round the edge with an autumn coloured chalk set using a cheap make up brush. The papers are from a digital pink petticoat download, printed on matt photo papers. Not for anyone just thought would look nice together.

Kelvins 1st Birthday:
A4 powder blue card stock, with top fold. Used my new nesties, as there so small there is very little I can do with them, then had a thought I could use the tiny one to add letters too, used a brass stencil to get the letters then went over the pencil line with a sukora gel pen. The image is a digital download I purchased a while ago I coloured him with pro markers blending to add highlight patches, thought it would best suit a young boy, perfect for little kelvin, layered him on the large cut out nestie then put through a embossing folder.

Baby grandson:
Papers computer generated, added colour with blue chalks. Peel off added to the centre. The image is a stamp unsure who made the stamp used my new nesties they arent as big as thought so couldnt layer this one. Coloured with pencils then blended with baby oil edged with blue chalks again. Wording also computer generated.
