Pretty Princess (in triplicate)

Pink, princess and of course, pretty - that was the request for a certain soon-to-be-6 young lady.  How easy is that when you have SU Pretty Princess stamp set?  I have used this set a few times now and wanted to do something a little different so I opted for a different shape of card.  I can't believe how long it took me to work out the final design but here it is:

Having used the scallop punch on the edges I then had to add a layer of the rose red on the inside to show off the scallops and it also required a different insert as well.

By the time I had finished fiddling with this one my patience had worn off so the next two 'spare' princesses got a somewhat basic finish:


I have used Pretty in Pink and Rose Red card stock and used the marker pens for colouring the images.

I had a go at making the man's shirt that I saw on "Dawn's Stamping Thoughts" - that was a bit of fun and may be handy for Fathers' Day.  designer paper is "Outlaw" from SU.

Now believe it or not this next card was not for a child !!  If I have a gift for someone I try to make a matching card.  I had a set of measuring cups in the shape of Matryoshka dolls for a friend, so this Hero Arts stamp set was the obvious way to go.

Why could I not see that sticky strip under the ribbon before I gave it away ???

That's about my lot for today - hopefully I will get time to play with my new Top Note die and the Bird Punch today.
