Pretty in purple and pink

 Today i would like to share with you not a card but a folder i have created to store my printed off Sherri Baldy Digi's .

I created the folder using Creata Kraft card which is a very sturdy card and was perfect for the job .
As you can see i have used a wonderful and sweet fairy image 6122 coloured her in purple and pale pink tones using my Pro markers.The picture above is the front cover of my folder.

 I have decorated the spine of my folder and added a label so i know what folder is when when it is stored .

 The above picture is of the inside of my folder as i wanted it to look just as pretty on the inside as i did the outside . 

All products i have used are from Creata . The Gems and 2 small brads  are from my stash and i used pro markers to colour my image .
Thank you for stopping by

A New Besties Challenge - Punches and Dies!

It's Monday so that means time for a new challenge at Besties Challenge. The challenge requires the use of one of super sweet images from Sherri Baldy and this week we want to see you use "Punches and/or Dies" on your card.

Card Recipe:
Image - Fancy Franny
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Winter Ginger by DCWV
Sentiment - Cloud 9
Ruffled Ribbon - Offray
Trim - Hobby Lobby
Rhinestones - Michaels
Glitter Brads - The Paper Studio
Dies - Mini Fanciful Flourish, Medium Rose, Leaf and Dainty Dutch Square Doily all by Cheery Lynn Designs

I wouldn't usually use Blue and Green together but when I saw this gorgeous paper stack I just had to have it and so Franny got the blue and green treatment :)
I had some glitter paper and brads that were just waiting to be used and I think they added the touch of bling that this card needed.
Next week you'll see me in a different spot but don't worry I'll still be creating with Sherri's gorgeous images and for now I leave you with the task of punching your way to an enter in the Besties Challenge!

My Besties New Ribbon Challenge!

It's Monday so that means time for a new challenge at Besties Challenge. The challenge requires the use of one of super sweet images from Sherri Baldy and this week we want to see you use "Ribbon" on your card.
Oh my goodness the Butterfly Fairy image I chose is so cute! I think she looks like a real "flower child" and the papers I chose have a kind of hippie feel to them too.

Card Recipe:
Image - Butterfly Fairy
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Doodle Deux by Prima
Die Cut - Sizzix
Sentiment - K and Co
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby
Brads - The Paper Studio
Pearls - Recollections
Glitter - Recollections Extra Fine

I love this die cut frame and although it is a little big for a 6" square card it works at an angle and I like the quirky feel that it gives to an elegant frame.
I hope you liked this one and that you will go over to the Besties Challenge and join with us.

Time for Tea Alice

Hiya it Friday which means its my Day to Blog

I have been Busy in my Kraft-area again this week making pretties for both Sherri Baldy and Carley Duff and have been mixing the Amazing Digi's by Sherri with the Gorgeous products by Carley as i have been doing more and more lately xxx

When i see this Digi I could not resit teaming with the fab Creata backing paper and a few scrap pieces of papers to match the colours of the backing paper. I coloured the Image using Promarkers and cut out to attach to the front as i didnt think that a white background would work with this card. I have cut out smaller motif's from the paper to use as embellishments. The stamp was a freebie from a magazine. Ive also used some Tim Holtz distress inks in Fired Brick and Faded Jeans around the edges of the backing papers and the sentiment. I really do love bright colours lately and am stepping out of my comfort zone more and more which i am enjoying.

I hope you like my card as much as i liked making it. I would love for you to visit my blog

To create the frills and the flower wraps i cut the edges from a large doily and pleated curving it round part of the image  edge and around my flowers . It just gives a feel of using lace .

I have die cut a scalloped oval shape for the matt in the middle of the card.  Creata rose stencils are the main embellishment and added some buttons a pearl brad and glitter to enhance the card

I hope you like what i have shown today and will pop back again soon

Carley's day out 'think pink' x

Kerrie (kezzla) here

Its friday again which means its my DT blog post day

I have getting caught up this week with all my blogging and challenges etc and this is the card ive made for the 'bestieschallenge.blog' so i actually am blogging this twice, once here for you all to see and once on my personal blog to enter the challenge xxx

i really love this image and i chose soft pinks to match the roses backing paper i picked from a paper pad by Creata xx i've used promarkers to colour the image i'm quite pleased how it turned out i was a little worried that the softer pink on her dress would be too close to skin colour. Ive also inked around the image with Tim Holtz distress ink in Spun Sugar, then used this same ink around the backing papers, the card blank and the die cut motif xx

i've used a few (xcut) nesting shaped dies to cut out the motif and som matt&layerimg with silver mirror board which i've also used for matt&latering for the backing paper and the image too. The same mirror board i used to die cut the leaf swirls and curly swirl (dies by Creata), i've used soft pink card and some of the backing paper for the die cut flowers (dies by Creata) and layered these and attached to the swirls topped with mulberry paper roses and a few gems.

I hope you like this weeks post from me i will be back again next friday but in the meantime i will be posting most days on my own personal blog below
