Cards Made By our AMAZING Design Team "My-Besties TM"

Hi Girls,
Here are some NEW My-Besties digis  turned into some amazing cards by our Wonderful Design Team..... You can find all these digis and rubber stamps here:  

and here in our Bestie website.....

Here`s my (Eva Gro) card:

I have used: Dies from Spellbinder (Exquisite Circles) Tim Holtz (Butterflight and Distressed Doily)
The ribbons are from Ribbon Girl, Butterfly punches ( Martha Stewart and Nellie Snellen) Papers are from Bo Bunny.
My Bestie image is colored with Pro and Flexmarkers.
(Burnt orange, Coral, sunkissed pink-(skin), Olive Green (Eyes), Dusky Rose (lips)
Olive Green, Pear Green, Lime Green and Lime Zest ( dress and shoes)
Peony, Sorbet (f), Pale Blossom, (skirt upper part, and bow), Sorbet (f) and Antique White (f), lower part and peony on the small flowers.
I have made a step by step tutorial on the coloring. Just let me know if I shall put it in here:-)


Coloured with Copic Markers
Skin - E000O, 00O, OO, R11, R00
Hair - E41, 43, 44, 31, 34
Dress & Bows B21, B000, BOOOO.
V0000, VOOO, RV91, RV93
Shadow - C00, C0, C1

I thought this little Bestie looked quite vintage, so I used the more muted Copic colours. I chose some flowers and vintage lace to match and the tiny butterflies were cut from the Maja paper, scored and glued with Pinflair glue. Then I added a coat of Stardust Stickles. ( everyone knows butterflies have to sparkle)
Papers are MAJA SPRING, the die is MARIANNE.

I have fallen in love with this Bestie and just know I will use her time and time again.

I love all four Digi's, but because I saw that there were already two used, I have chosen for another one. This little lady with her beautiful dress and loose laces in her shoes is so sweet. I have coloured her in pastel and used paper in the same colours. I have coloured with Spectrum Noir Green: LG 1,2,3 and DG 2,3. Blue: TB 2,3. Skin color: FS1, 2 and 8. Pink: PP1, 2, 3 and 5. The die of the label is from Marianne. The paper is by Sharon Ann Collection Déja Vieuws Baby Girl.
Like Chris said, that she have fallen in love with the Besties, I can tell you they have stolen my heart too.

Copic colours:
E43, E 42, E 41
RV 95, RV 34, RV 32, RV 04, RV 02, RV 00
B 97, B 95, B 93, B 91
E 11, E 21, E 00, E 50, R 20

My paper is Maja paper - Vintage spring basics.

Leaves, frame is from Marianne design.
Ant the label is from Magnolia.
And of course the beautiful digi from Sherri.


The base of the card i made with a Go Kreate dies-Frilly 2

Hello again

another easel card from me today using princess jasmine. I have used a piece of centura card stock and embossed it using an embossilicious folder then applied TH inks to grunge it up a bit.
I covered the easel base in creata scrapbooking paper in co-ordinating colour.

Cut a scalloped oval die shape in mirror card to use as the matting for the image. Printed the image onto neenah and coloured with SN markers then distressed around it.

Applied a rose to her hair

Rik Rak ribbon, joy craft flourish dies, creata die cut flowers, sentiment and bling all added to the base.

I hope you like what i have created and will pop back again soon
