Birthday Cutie!

I've definately found a new addiction!!  I stumbled across Kenny K's digi stamps when I visited The Ink Trap blog a few weeks ago.  Holy Hannah that Cheryl makes some FABULOUS cards!!  Anywhoo, the Kenny K Krafty Girlz blog sponsors a challenge every week, and this week's challenge is Bling It On!!  Here's what I came up with:

The digi stamp is Queens Cutie from Kenny K, and she is the first of what I'm sure will be MANY digis in my collection from him!  I also CASE'd this card over at SCS for the layout.  The background papers are both from Basic Grey, and I used a new Martha Steward punch to do the border.  I tried to punch through both layers at the same time so my pattern would match up, but that didn't work so swell.  It punched partway through, so I was able to use that as a guide when I seperated the two pages and punched them individually.  I used a Spellbinders die for the label shape, the Birthday sentiment is from Verve Stamps, and all the bling is from iRock courtesy of the Bling Fairy!  The flowers are all from Prima, and I used my SU! Piercing Template to do the edges of the card base.  I used a Bazzil In Stitches template to mark where I wanted the bling flourish to be, then set the stones individually.  I think it turned out pretty cute! 

Thanks for looking!

  2. Hi, Rachel! I was poking around the submissions for the Kenny K bling challenge and was so surprised to see my name on your blog. How sweet are you ;D Thank you so much for the shout out!

    This card is gorgeous! I LOVE that border and it is so dramatic with the black behind it. Also, that bit of paper piercing around the edge is fabulous! So many wonderful details!
