Emma with Camera -from Paper Nest Dolls

This was such a fun image to work with from The Paper Nest Dolls sight!  There's always great opportunities for highlights and folds in Christine's images!  On this Birthday card, I used a torn complimentary color paper to accent the stamped sentiment.  On the inside, I used a creamy tan polka - dot paper with a stamped sentiment that could either be colored in or just left b&w as I did.  Love these wooden cutouts that are so popular in the craft shops-I think I'm addicted to them!
Make sure you visit the PND Challenge site to get your latest card entered--there are lots of opportunities to win images!  We can't wait to see yours there!

Here Comes the Sun Summer Set --A New Release Party with Sherri Baldy

   This adorable image is the Star of another one of   Sherri's New Release Summer SETS called "Here Comes the Sun" .
I Love being able to use various sentiments and accessory stamps that all go together-and you have that in Sherri's sets.
On this card, I used a series of papers that were all curves and swirls like the ocean and then some Beachy striped papers.  I decided to take advantage of the little cutie leaning to the right and make the card front follow the same curve.  You can see when I open the card and have it back-lit that the edge is inked for some definition.
Now you can see the impact of the paper's nautical feel with all the curves and angles.  These sentiments were ones that were on the double sided water paper as I didn't have access to the ones that came with the set.  But what a great idea this is of Sherri's--One Stop Shopping!

Hope you're enjoying this New Release Party!  Check out all the new goodies in the shop to get your card stash growing!

This little cutie is from one of Sherri's new SETS called "Life's A Beach". There are several SETS with a similar theme with lots of accessory digital stamps to round out your creation. 
I used this wavy printed paper with some button brad accents.  A little White Chunky Frantage on the waves and you have some Surf!
On the inside, while I could've used one of the adorable sentiments, I chose to a complimentary sentiment/color combination.

Prom Princess-It's that time at All Dressed Up where Anything Goes with New Releases!

 Wendy the resident artist at All Dressed Up has done it again with 4 new images ready for their new release!  I got to play with "Prom Princess"-all dolled up with one of my favorite color combinations Lime and Purple!  I used Ice Stickles for all the BLING on her outfit.  Love how it really stands out on the images.  Because she was tall and slender, I did a 3/4 cut on the card front-that way you get to see the designer paper behind the paper lace edging.  I also used purple "goosebumps" faceted accents both in the front and inside.
On the inside, I finished it off with some very pretty floral paper and also a phrase that was printed on the edge of the purple polka-dot paper.  Great way to have a color coordinated sentiment for your project to use this edging on the paper!  Be sure to check out our blog Challenge that happens on the 15th of each month-it can be found here.
