New Somethings

What an exciting day today and week! Yes, today was the inauguration day of the exhibition! All went so nicely, speech by the CEO, then he came to see our displays, talking to us one by one .... photos by the photographer.... yummy goodies all along .... and a nice commemorative booklet as well woo hoo :) So exciting, am so really tired now after all the preparations and excitement ...

Don't have any photos today (did you see the ones I posted yesterday?), but of course will have today's sometime soon. Instead today I got two more cards which I made especially for the exhibition, me deciding of course in the last minute and both using and doing new things for me.

For this one I'm using my newest and FIRST Kraftin Kimmie stamp, woo hooo isn't she TDF. Couldn't decide which one to get from them all, and finally I decided on Nadine. 
I coloured her with my promarkers, my son decided on the red touches on her dress! ..... I like to involve them as much as I can, paper was a freebie gift in the Cardmaking and Papercraft mag, embossing (love this), some gems, a flower and a nice bow for the final touch. See something different in my bow? .... I haven't got the bow easy, but I found a free bow-easy template here, which I printed and cut out on a very thick card. Was just as good I think :) Ah yes, I did the sentiment myself on a Word document.
This is the sketch that I followed
 and I am entering my card in these challenges today
Kraftin Kimmie 66 - THE SKETCH
2 Sisters Challenge 27 - EMBOSSING

For my second card, I am trying a diamond fold card for the first time. I thought it would have been a good idea to make a different shaped card for the exhibition and I got the idea after I saw the challenge and tutorial at the Fairytale Challengeblog this week. Really loved how it turned out.

Stamp is from Daisy Doodles, which I coloured with my promarkers, papers were a free gift in the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, butterfly punch from DoCrafts, corner one from MS  ..
and the lovely birthday stamp is from Crafty Sentiments.

I am entering this card in these challenges :
Fairytale Challenge 9 - DIAMOND FOLD
Lexi's Creations 34 - FLOWERS
Kaboodle Doodles 55 - BREAK TRADITION
Scrap Creations 22 - BIRTHDAYS
Card Makin Mamas 15 - BIRTHDAYS

Now I really have to go.. got to do some DT Cards :) 

Thanks for looking.
