Kaleidoscope pendant and border

I played with my new Kaleidoscope pendant and border yesterday. These new nestabilitiels and borders are wonderful but a bit more of a challenge to get cut out. You need to run them thru more than once and be very patient when getting them out of the dies. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Flower soft

Both of these cards are toppers from Flower soft and you just add the flower soft over the printed flowers. Very easy and fun cards to make, I used some golden shimmerz on them also. You can get the flower soft at Flourishes and the toppers and flower soft from Flower soft I had a couple of gals here today that are from my home town and we actually met in FL at the Flourish get away last winter. It was so much fun to have them come and play.

A couple of new cards

This card was made using the Sutter floral frame and cut out using the Stampin up top note die and then I placed the lady from Beeswax inside. I just embellished it with some prima flowers and leaves and a M.S border punch from Michaels.

This little girl is from Whiff of Joy I think, my friend had her for us to try last week at our get together and I used a Nestability and the Stampin up top note die to cut out. Just some little flowers to cover my slip with the gold pen, LOL and a bow, used the new EK tiny corner punch and background paper is K&CO. So glad you stopped by and thank you so much for all the nice comments that you leave for me. They are greatly appreciated.

New Spellbinder Nestabilities

This is the new Renaissance hearts pendants from Spellbinders. It is really a gorgeous die but very much a challenge to use. After many bad words I finally emailed them for help as it wouldn't cut thru most of the papers I tried and they told me to run it thru the machine at least 3 times. I ran this thru 4 times and flipped the sandwich after the second time. It is gorgeous and very much worth the hassel but just be prepared. I used basic gray papers behind it.

Helen's wedding card

I made this card for a friend's wedding in UK several weeks ago but couldn't post it until she received and opened all of her cards from our group. I used the keepsake embossing board Bookatrix from The Glitter Girls to emboss and cut out the book. The bride is from Flourishes and the carriage is from Me and Carrie Lou with flower soft around it. The bird is a M.S. punch and the rest are peel offs. I sprayed the background with my copic markers and air brush system. The dress is some neat paper I found that has gold dots on it and I raised it up. Thanks for stopping by.

This is the new stamp from Gina Kay designs, it's so pretty and fun to work with. The background stamp comes with several sayings to fit into the center. I embossed in gold and used H2O's to color the flowers. Thanks for stopping by.

One more tri fold shutter

I just couldn't resist trying this card one more time using some gorgeous holographic floral papers from The Glitter Girls. I love thier fancy papers and of course they don't show well here but they are so pretty. The link for this technique is on the next picture down. Please try this and have fun with it.

After seeing this type of card on this site I had to try it. They are so much fun and really not hard to do it. Lots of cuttng but not difficult. All of the directions are there for you and a link to Split coast stamper where there are about 15 pages of tri shutter cards to view.
