Paper Sundaes #23 Challenge of Pretty as a Princess...just got me a girly mood today..Im pretty new to this card making thing, and havent yet acquired a big
stash of pretties and bling...(trust me Im working on correcting that!).....
Anyway...thought I would play a bit with a few things, one of them being print
master express, to see if I could merge several images and hey..I surprised myself! I got them to merge...not crazy about how the inking on the edges shows up in the photo, goodness knows I'm not the best photographer either....It was great fun just playing around with this one, and I hope to improve with each card...there are so many talented cardmakers out there, I hope to have some of that knowledge and creativity rub off!!
Anyway...this easel card was put together this way....cut 5x10 white cardstock, 4 6/8 x 4 6/8 square of double sided Imaginesce cardstock Baby Powder/Baby's Breath, the scalloped design was downloaded from Fred She Said's blog, colored with uchida markers and a blending pencil. and then added a few flowers colored with uchida marker, and some bling bling....The sentiment was printed from Word on white
CS, and double matted with designer CS...

Loved this digi stamp from Meljen's designs, thought it was just adorable for a birthday card!! and....thought I would enter it for this weeks challenge on Meljen's Design blog of fibers, ribbon and lace...well least this one has ribbon ;)
Did a little fussy cutting,after printing the image twice, coloring with watercolor pencils, and then layering with the help of some foam dots, the top layer of the cupcake was "frosted" with very fine clear glittery stuff....added a candy pink grosgrain ribbon..and viola!...of course had to use the cute little studio G stamp I found for the envelope corner...too cute!!
Been playing a bit with my stamps, and the very neglected stack of paper in my closet! Ive recently "discovered" the world of digital stamps and have just been like a kid in candy store with them..one of my new fave artists is Michelle Perkett, she has the most wonderful artwork and awesome stamps on her Etsy page...right now she is having a challenge on her blog So....I decided to give it a go, I literally threw this card together..(trying to find just the right papers to create a "perfect" card...and really liked how these looked together)Now...I downloaded the roses from the net, and for the life of me can't remember where....they are colored with uchida markers, and then, frosted with very fine glitter, although, you really cant tell from my lousy photo...the cards edges were inked with olive, the strip punched with a Martha Stewart border punch, and a few gems added...
Hoping the next attempts turn out well...playing with a new dress stamp right now!!
