Pinkie.... Dies and Punches

Hi Peeps

Wowww this year is going to quickly....  seems that two weeks fly by so fast that I've barely got time to make my cards for In The Pink!  This time the challenge theme is Dies and/or Punches.... so I decided to get away from the Christmas cards I've been making lately and do a couple of fun cards!

This first card uses a Stamping Bella Uptown Girls stamp...  called Victoria and Juliette's Night Out!  I have to admit - they really DO look like a Victoria and a Juliette!!  I had fun colouring them... and of course glittering at least one of the dresses!!
Sideways view

Materials used:
  • Image -Stamping Bella Victoria and Juliette's night out
  • Card Creations pink dotty paper
  • Copics to colour
  • Bazzill cardstock
  • Magnolia Doo-Hickey Romantic Lace edge die
  • MFT Die-namics Daisy Die
  • Sentiment - done on PC - Font is One Starry Night (free)
  • Glitter (of course.....)
Now onto my second card which I've kept quite simple... 


I printed out some digi pink jacquard paper..... and punched the edge with a scallop punch.  I added a strip of the same colour paper along one side, and added gems at regular intervals.  Then I used a fabulous butterfly die.....  which of course I glittered up first......  and some smaller punched butterflies.  Again, I punched the edge with the scallop punch.  I decided not to add a sentiment (ok I chickened out!) as I couldn't figure what to put or where to put it!

I wish you could see how much it glitters and flutters in real life!!

Materials:
  • Pink Petticoat Jacquard Paper
  • Stampin Up Scallop Edge Punch
  • Crystal Gems
  • Large Butterfly - MFT Vivienne Butterfly Die
  • Small Butterflies - a punch with no name!
  • Glamour Dust (by the bucket load!)
Hope you like both of my pinkie cards...  they are very different shades of pink.. but both shades I like... and the pink dotty has more blue in it than is showing..  it's funny how the camera can turn any shade to another!  If you pop over to In The Pink... you'll see more details of the new challenge, and also fabulous creations from both my partner in crime - Sylvia and our lovely new Guest Designer - Christine from Nanaseaside.

Right.....  Yesterday we had new carpet put down from the insurance company after the leak I had earlier in the year... dining room and hall/stairs/landing... (was waiting for the decorator to do his bit) so today I'm going to try to get the house back to some semblance of tidiness... wish me luck!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
