These 2 cards were made using my nestabilities. I got the idea from Mish, see below for her details. They are simple to make & are a great idea for using up scraps of card & paper etc. If you want to, you can write a message on either the front of the card or the back.
Thanks for visiting! :-)

...where I can buy these two punches?? Or which company makes/sells them?? A friend in Queensland made me a card using these punches & she said she bought them at a stamp show (In Queensland Australia) but they had no name on them.
I WANT THEM!! They are about an inch in diameter and I would just LOVE to have them!! So if anyone knows where I can get them from, PLEASE email me or leave me a comment on here - THANK YOU!!!:-)
P.S. Thanks Robyn, your cards are, as usual, just gorgeous!!
Well, progress has been made in leaps & bounds!! I emailed a couple of stamp companies in Australia & within MINUTES of emailing I had a reply from TWO awesome companies & have ordered some of these punches! (They are called Around The Block Punches) A BIG thank you to both Rebecca Bodini from BizzyBecs, and Kaaren Whouley from Fat Cats Cards!! I appreciate your super quick response!! If you don't ask you don't get...I asked & I got!! :-) Thanks for visiting!
I am going to a friends wedding on Friday & I made these guest note cards to take with me. (There are 110 and I made them all yesterday!!) I will get each guest to sign a card, or write a comment on it, all without the bride & groom knowing, & will bring them home & put them either into an album or get a special box to put them in & then give them to the bride & groom. I cut 55 pink scallop rectangles using my nesties, & 55 blue ones. I used my labels nesties to cut 110 white cards. After sticking each white card to the pink/blue cards, I stamped the champagne glasses (Artee) & added some Twinkling H2o pale pink paint for the champagne, coloured the hearts in red & lastly added kindy glitz. PHEW!! What a job, but it was worth it! Each card measures about 3 3/4 inch by 2 3/4 inches. I just kept hoping my Cuttlebug machine kept going! Has anyone ever worn their CB out from over use?!! I can relax now they are all DONE! I was inspired by some cards MISH had made, so thank you Mish for the awesome idea!! Check out her blog, she's amazing!

Here is the second card I made using my new stamp, "Jewels". The words are from a "Hanna Stamps" set. I coloured her much the same as the previous one, & added Kindy glitz, stick on pearls & paper flowers. I used my nesties to cut out the white card. The aqua card is Bazzill card.
Another fun card to make! Thanks again Bec, for the stamp!
This is such a cute stamp! She is one of BizzyBecs new range of stamps & I won her! Bec wanted names for the new stamps so I named this one Jewels & won her! (Thank you Bec!)
I stamped her in black & coloured her with several layers of copic markers. I added stick on pearls for her necklace, jeans & bracelet. I put a pink gem on her belt & one in her hair. I stamped the flower in her hair twice & stuck it to the card with sponge tape. I cut out the scallop oval with my nesties & used my shape cutter to cut the blue oval. I added half a large white dasiy to the background. I also added lot's of Kindyglitz to the image. She need's lot's of "bling"! If you haven't seen the new range of stamps Bec has, go & have a look, they are all soooo cute! Thanks for visiting, have a great Sunday! Check out Bizzybecs here. Also check out her blog www.bizzybecsblogspot.com Lot's of FUN!!
I used Bazzill card to make this card.
I stamped the butterfly onto clear plastic using Stazon ink then added coloured Kindy glitz. I stamped the image (Hero Arts) onto the card & used watercolour crayons to colour it. I cut out a small lilac circle & put this on the card then put the butterfly on top. I layered the pink/lilac Bazzill card ontot he blue card. I lastly added Kindy glitz to the flower image. The butterfly wings stand out IRL.
Thanks for visiting!
This was a really quick & easy card to make!
I used my swiss dots embossing folder for the red card, & a floral border folder for the white strip of card on the right. Then I cut out the hearts using my concentric hearts cuttlebug die & stuck them to the card as shown. I added the white strip on the right & put some tiny gems on some of the flowers & the cad was finished!

This is a Valentines card I made. The bear stamp is a "Stamps by Judith" stamp, (isn't he cute!) and the "Kiss Ticket" stamp is from Inkadinakdo.
I just adore this bear stamp, I have used him for many different occasions! I sploshed him with Kindy glitz & added some very fine gold glitter (Jones Tones). I like the way the corners are punched & folded back, & it is easy to do! Have you tried it?!
I stamped the bears' left hand on scrap card & cut it out & stuck it tot he card with sponge tape. That way he looks like he is holding the 'ticket'! I'm sure he will get lot's of "kisses"!!
The humidity here is really bad right now & isn't helping me stamp! There is no reprieve at night either, in fact it's worse then:-( Thanks for visiting & I hope to have more soon! Take care...
