Two more Sweeties

I have done two more cards using the Sugar Nellie Digital Stamps, these two are Joy and Hope that I had got some time ago. I have coloured both little girls with Water colour pencils.

This one is Hope.  I have use the Victorian Rectangles nesting dies by Couture Creations to frame her, and also for the Sentiment.  I have used the Garden Trellis border punch by Martha Stewart behind that.  The paper at the very back is from the 'From the Heart of the Garden by Jane Shasky' a Joanna Sheen CDrom.  Then finally some handmade flowers and punched Ash leaves, and some pearls done with liquid pearls.  

This one is Joy, I have coloured her in lime green to go with the Designer paper and trimmed it with Black.  The Cheery Lynn Fanciful flourish behind the handmade flowers and some little lime green gems in the centres of the tiny daisies and the buttons on her cardigan.  

I think these little girls, are so adorable.  They make such cute cards.

Sugar Nellie's Winifred in Blue

Another Sugar Nellie digital stamp called Winifred, she is just gorgeous.  Again I have coloured her with watercolour pencils.

I have framed her with the Victorian Rectangle nesting die by Couture Creations.  Behind the frame is the Marianne Creatables Doily Die, I think this is my all time favourite die! The backing papers are again done with the 'From the Heart of the Garden by Jane Shasky' CDrom from Joanna Sheen.  They are such pretty papers, and go so well with these beautiful digital stamps.  
I have done the border with the ribbon with the Martha Stewart Doily border punch.  The flowers are handmade, the leaves are the Ash family punch and the rose leaf cut from the Leane Creatief frame leaves die.   

Victoria in Pink

I have made a card with one of the Sugar Nellie Digital Stamps that I have purchased.  I really love these little girls, they are just so sweet!

I coloured the digital stamp in with watercolour pencils, very softly.  I have used some of the rose backing papers that are available in the Joanna Sheen CDrom called 'From the heart of the Garden by Jane Shasky', which are just beautiful.  I have framed Victoria with the Fleur de Frame by Couture Creations dies, used some lace and ribbons and used some of my homemade rose flowers.  Some die cut leaves and a flourish done with the Fanciful Flourish die by Cheery Lynn.  

I have used a border and an embellishment for the inside of the card from the CDrom to finish the card off.

Three cards using Leane Creatief Nested Frame Leaves

I was trying to use these dies in some different ways, so I have done three different cards using the same die.

This one I have used the frame around the Penny Black stamp and then I have used the Ash punch to make an arch around the top, and cut off the leaves at the two bottom corners, and then put some tiny little daisies on it, to go with the daisies in the picture and the backing paper.

The second one I again used a stamp, this time with some flowers and a letter box, I have made 
some paper daisies in shades of mauve and purple, in various different sizes.  I used some in each of the corners with two buds, and then in the right bottom corner I have used 3 bigger ones.

Then I used some tiny punched flower punches in cream, pink and mauve which I shaped slightly to put on the flowers on the stamp, with another couple of the smaller daisies.

The last one I made is a card with burgandy and cream card.    

In this one I have used the Martha Stewart doily border punch at the top and bottom and behind that I have used the fleur di lis part of the outside nested die, which I cut out and mounted behind the border.  I have used the Nellie Snellen corner dies to make the square at the back, on that - although it is rather hard to see - is another of the outside frame leaves die which I cut off the leaves, then there are cream and burgandy stacked nested die cuts in the centre.  I have made a rose with the Spellbinder Rose Creation die and used the Spellbinder rose leaves die.  Finally I have used part of the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die alternated with the leaves. Finally some cream pearls to finish it off.
