Cute Card Thursday

This week's theme on the Cute Card Thursday blog is

Nip and a punch

We were lucky enough to be given some products to play with from "Shortcuts". We were given some gift folder cards and some clear and frosted card blanks.

We have a new Guest Designer for this week and that is Jilly from Jilly's Creations.

Here are my cards.

I've shown you two photos of my frosted card so you can get a better idea as it was difficult to show.
So first of all I used a SU wheel with versamark ink to make the background. I then dusted over some perfect pearls which stuck to the versamark. I think it makes a lovely effect especially on clear cards. The image is a Gorjuss girl from the Sugar Nellie range. I also used the same technique for her, using versamark and perfect pearls. I then layered her up onto the scalloped square. I used my Cricut to make this die cut square. I then punched out the flowers using two different sizes of punch and added a gem to the middles. To finish off I added the sheer ribbon.

My second card is the gift folder card. Again I went over the blank with a SU wheel using versamark ink and then dusted over with perfect pearls in a gold colour. For the inside I did the same thing but used a very pale colour. The images are from Alota stamps. They are brand new bug images and there are a few just come out. I coloured them with promarkers and cut them out. I adhered them with 3D pads. The little music notes are die cuts and the sentiment is from a Stamp Away clear stamp.
