Christmas Nymph.

Hi Everyone, 
over at Diecut Divas this month the theme is Christmas in July, and with a fantastic sponsor like Frantic Stamper the options are endless. This month I wanted to create some Christmas cards with non traditional images as such, and I had fallen in love with these Nymphs so definitely wanted to use them. Here is my project:

Papers: Kaisercraft mint twist paper pad.

Card Tip:
A great way to highlight an image is to use a frame created from die cuts, it also adds a bit of interest if you have the frame going off the page.

               Flower 1: V25, V17, V04, RV23+RV63+RV34

Mothers Day Tulips

This month over at Diecut Divas we are talking about May Flowers (trees, grass, and plants all count too) with the amazing sponsor Janes Doodles. Here is my inspiration project.

Diecut Divas, Janes Doodle Tulip

Card Tip:
Digital Stamps are just like rubber stamps, you have the ability to multi stamp the image in a row like this, instead of using ink, you use a word program to copy and paste them. It is easier to use a PNG file vs JPG file as they have a transparent background but you do need to play with the text wrapping setting for this to work.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: White card base, Creative pink card stock, Bazzil glitter purple card stock.
Stamps:Janes Doodles Tulips, Kaisercraft occasions mini stamps. 
Ink: Memento tuxedo black ink.
Dies: Lil Inkers Designs bow die-small, Cheryl Lynn alison ribbons.
Other: Kaisercraft pink and purple gems.
