Mirror, mirror - Who is the Cutest?

Many times when I think of my Nestabilities I think of card making. Today I wanted to show you how they do work well with scrapooking also. When I started this layout I thought I would use the Big Scalloped Circles as a template for my journaling. Then I thought they would also make great clouds. But, what fit best in my layout was to make them look like a mirror. I used the largest one as a frame and the next size as the mirror. I put my daughter's initials on the mirror so that she is the answer to the question. Of course, I am totally biased!

Medallion card - inspired by Vicki

Thanks for the inspiration, Vicki!! I need to use this stamp more. Very Vanilla card stock & Rich Razzleberry ink & ribbon. I used lots of flat back pearls on this one, too!

Just for You

Here is a card I made for the cropstop sketch and challenge to use blue/yellow. I used a SU border punch, Crafts Too Butterflies folder, Swiss Dots folder, and SU's Butterfly sizzlet die. Card stock is all SU.

Father's Day Classic Truck card

I created this card for cropstop.blogspot.com. I am sure there are a few of you who, like me, still need to finish their Father's Day cards. I recently got this stamp and wanted to make my Father's Day cards this year with it. The shiny paper that I embossed with the Diamond Plate folder is actually out of a toy packaging my hubby asked if I could use it for something and I snatched it right up!! Little did he know I intended to use it on his card! The truck image is embossed in black and colored in with Red Pepper alcohol ink. I used one of the cotton toppers to move the red where I wanted it. The silver accents are snaps and the sentiment is punched out. All of the red edges are inked in black.
