Princess Cards

Here are the cards I made with the Princess4Life stamp set. This set is SO super cute!

The first one uses papers from Kristin Cronin-Barrow's Baby Girl digital scrapbook kit. I used my Silhouette to cut out the banner element to attach to the card. A friend asked me where I got those teeny-tiny clothespins - they're a digital element in the kit! Have I mentioned how much I love my Silhouette?

Next up is the princess card that uses Zoe Pearn's Summer Sorbet digital scrapbook kit. The swirls are cut from a QuicKutz die. The label is a Nestabilities die. I had to add some tiny rhinestones to the crown for added bling!

Finally, there's another happy birthday card using Sherwood Studios' Posy digital scrapbook kit. The flowers were made with Stacy Molter's Flower Templates & Cutting Files. I cut them with my Silhouette. The label is that same Nestabilities die.

Hybrid Cards

I created two square cards this week using brand new goodies from The Digi Chick!

First up is the way cool floral collage digital stamp by Arty Pants. I used Refresh: The Kit by Mari Koegelenberg for both cards.

I copied the dragonfly and butterfly a second time so I could cut out their wings and glitter them. I really wanted to use my crystal clear glitter by PK Glitz but apparently it is playing hide and seek on my workspace, so I used some of my Martha Stewart glitter instead.

My second card was based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch #188.

I used a little bit of twine from The Twinery to make the bow on the button, and then added a little Prima Marketing gerbera daisy flower to my accordion flower.
