Some new cards-finally!

I made these in the last few weeks but it has taken me forever to get the pictures done. For one thing my beloved DSLR seems to be taking soft pictures all of a sudden. This is even with a tripod so it's not my unsteady hands. I don't know if it's my lens or what-I need to do some tests I guess. Even so it is still better than my old point and shoot by far so it's still my baby. Frustrating though. Anyway these all use SU cardstock plus the following:

This is done with the Very Punny set (I think the sentiment is from Unfrogettable)plus Prints Designer Series papers plus some rick rack from Doodlebug. I colored it with Copics (what else?)


This one is made with the Eat Cake set and SU craft inks. Plus Prints Designer Series paper and nestabilities. Also some sewing. I used Spica Glitter Pens on the candle tips but you can't tell from the picture.


This one is made with the Pretty Princess set. Colored with copic markers. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder plus nestabilities. I'm not sure who makes the ribbon. I used Spica Glitter Pens on this one too.


This one is made with the Vases in Vogue set and colored with copic markers. I used some old patterned paper (can't remember who makes it) and my nestabilities and sewing machine. Don't know who made the ribbon either.


I really didn't like this one much but I'm posting it anyway. It's made with Big Blooms set and also the Posy background. Plus some Prints Designer Series paper.


This one is a nestabilities nightmare. I got the embossing borders and wanted to try them. So I did the card front and it looked too plain so I added the ribbon. Then I had my image all ready and mounted on just one scalloped square and it was waaaay too small. So I thought hey, I'll just add another layer. And it was still way too small. SO I said to heck with it and added the third one. It was heavy but so far it's hanging on. I don't really like it much but as slow as I am making cards I can't afford not to post them all. It's made with A Flower for All Seasons and colored with copic markers. I also used some Prints Designer Series paper (I love this stuff). I can't remember which cuttlebug embossing border plus some American Crafts ribbon and of course the nestabilities.


And after all these I am still really awful at coloring with these markers. I'm still working on it though..

I love your cards! You do great with the Copics...you are too hard on yourself!

Scary thing...when I looked at the Princess cake card I said to myself "looks like she used RV 06, 04, 02..." LOL I must use that combo a lot myself! :)
