A fully fledged Totally Gorjuss gal!

Yay, I've been invited to become a fully fledged Totally Gorjuss gal!  Of course, I've accepted cos they are lovely team to work with!  This week's challenge is "not square" sponsored by Fantastic Ribbons.  I can't believe how cheap you can buy ribbons from these guys - and one can never have enough ribbon, I'm sure you'll agree.


I decided to use something that I've never used before from my stash (see, I am managing to stick to my resolution a few posts back!!) - a Quickutz nesting label dies.  It's so old that they've discontinued it, lol!  So I made my first card and then loved it so much, I made - {{err hem}} - 6!  Yeah, I know, a bit nutty!



I've even decorated the insides of the cards, but I haven't uploaded the photos - don't want to bore you, right?!!   I've now made 9 cards from this paper kit, that's great value for money!  Now, only another 10 (and more!) paper kits to use up, lol!!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Crate Paper Paper Doll paper kit
Stamps: none!
Mediums: Sakura basic white gel pen, Sakura glitter pen
Accents: ribbons from stash, BasicGrey button
Tools: Nestabilities label dies (inside cards), circle and lacey circles, Quickutz nesting label dies, EK Success border punch (inside card)

What a gorjuss selection of cards! I tend to shy away from die cut toppers too, but you've really shown them off perfectly! I just ordered some Nesties labels the other day, can't wait for them to come so I can play too! x
