It's A Pink Day

Hello to everyone!  Some of you are "pink" people, some of you are not, but I decided to post this sample because I had a request on a comment for some ideas for the smaller pieces in the Nesties .  Tags!  They make great tags on your cards.  This one is very small so I have used it with a small phrase, but I like the way it looks when hanging from the bow on my card.  I did try to get a closer picture of the centre of this card, but blogger was only allowing one pic per post this morning!  You can sort of see that I used the same die that I cut the background negative space with to emboss the pattern on to the white behind it.  It's a little tricky to line up unless you leave your white piece oversized and then cut it down with the embossed area lined up just so.  There are some more of our new pearl swirls that I have used over top of the edgeabilities here too!  Hope you like it (even if you're not a pink person!).  By the way, this is the first post ever that I am scheduling for my blog as I am  (or will be when this goes live) at the Ally Pally show in London sans laptop!  All for now, Sue x

Such a cutie! I am one of those persons who doesn't fancy pink color but I can admit that your card looks beautiful (and don't have to lie 'bout that ^^)

I think, it looks awesome. I just love the white and pink together and it´s a great way to use these smaller diecuts too, but many of them can also be gathered to make a nice pattern, when combined, so it´s just to take a minute to play a bit around with them, then you can create amazing patterns. This is awesome.
HAve a wonderful week-end everyone.

I can't get past the concept that there are people who don't love pink! :)

Lovely card - the smaller dies are my favourites.

Have a great time at Ally Pally.

This is a beautiful card! You tone everything together so well.

Unfortunately I will be missing Ally Pally this time as we have to take our daughter to uni this weekend - do the universities NOT know the crafting calendar????

I'm not normally a pink person, but I love this card Sue. Must remember to think about my nesties when making tags. I have stuck magnetic sheets to my craft room walls and all my nesties are now displayed in the open so that I can see them and I'm making much more use of them now, only one problem with this - I'm running out of wall space and I just had to have the new edgeabilities and yet some more dies this week.
Have fun at Ally Pally.

Morning Sue,
I'm not a pink person but I like the simplicity and elegance of this card. I have friends and family that are definitely pink people and they would love this card.
Hope all those going to Ally Pally have a great time.
Love and Light

LellyJelly said...

Just home from a fun day at Ally Pally. Really pretty card, Sue. A lovely shade of pink plus spots - they're always good. A very attractive card. Don't worry about a larger photo, if we hover the mouse over the picture and click, a larger, clearer picture appears on screen. Oh, the wizardry of technology!!!
Was good to see you.xx
BTW - fab DVD!

squiggle7 said...

Hello! Just found your blog after visiting you at Ally Pally today. Do you have a shop as well as online as I actually only live 3 miles away from where you are?

Love this card, especially the way you've used the nesties and different paper in the middle.

Emma

Karen said...

Lovely card and brilliant use of the waste bits of the nesties, I use mine a lot on the cancer charity cards, it all helps! Hope you enjoy Ally Pally and look forward to seeing all the new goodies soon!

freedom99 said...

Love this pink card most of mine are usually pink or purple but branched out since watching you make cards.
Love the idea for using the tiny dies never used any of mine always thought they were a bit of a waste and they could have gone one bigger on most sets and still fit the bug, no worries no i have the GB but would love some more grand labels to match the smaller ones.
Can't wait for Tuesday that's the day i should get my pick of the day edge dies going to have a play when the grandkids go home.lol
