WOO HOO Stamp Club has Arrived and Plays with Mad For Markers

WOW I was so happy this morning when I went to the letter box and I found my Stamp Club Stamps from Magnolia.... WOOHOO they were soon stuck on that icky ez mount, baby powdered to take away the sticky gaps in between the rubbah and chop chop chop, until they were all done!! So I couldn't wait to use some of them, so I picked Sailor Edwin and the Porthole background.

This week at Mad for Markers they are after "white colouring" so I have coloured Edwin's shirt, the boat sails and the band on his sailor cap "white" so much fun..... I used W1 and W3 and a bit of  0 because I didn't have W0 and I also did a little bit of E0000.  Then I popped on a bit of sparkly bits... because I couldn't stop myself!!  So hope to like it.  Because I LOVE it, I'm so happy with my colouring, some bits didn't come out like they were meant to but Pretty Awesome job if I do say so myself!!

Just Magnolia #64

Well what a shocker of a day - well it is here anyway.  Its been raining just about all day and not to mention its a tad on the cold side!!  Perfect weather for craftin' though!! hehehehe So I thought I would have a go at the Sketch that Bev has done over at Just Magnolia.  I think I have pretty much stuck to it, and I haven't change too much - just my main pic' which is at a little bit of an angle!!

So I have been having another play with my Copics and this is what I come up with,  I'm not all that happy with Tilda's dress I don't think my blending worked very well.  But if I kept on going I think I would have had my Copic ink bleeding everywhere from the amount of colouring that I have done.... oh well.... it was still fun though.  So here it is.  Hope you like it!

Paper: Stampin' Up Kraft Card stock, Kasier Patterned Paper and Stampin' Up Very Vanilla Card stock
Embellishments: Flourish with a Bling and Lace from Tickled Pink Stamps, i am roses.com roses, Kindy Glitz, MS punch.

So here is my card and I went for Spring!!  This card is especially made for my fellow Design Team Member Debbie, and also (hopefully) it's landed at Debbie's house in time for her Birthday today!!  Hope you like it Debbie:-)

So for my card I used 3 Magnolia Fairytale Collection Stamps.  Isn't it cute??  I used the Fairytale Background, Fantasy Flower (so pretty) and Princess Tilda (is that what she's called?? I dunno) So I first stamped Tilda and then, I stamped the Fantasy Flower and then, I made a couple of mask's and masked them, then I stamped my Background! So that's how you do it, in case you were wondering!!  Easy Peasy:-)

Thanks for coming and taking a look:-)

Tickled Pink Stamps Sketch and Just Magnolia Have Fun Together!!!

So here is a card that I used my Copic's on.  Turned out pretty darn good I reckon!!  I'm still trying to figure them out a bit, and gosh, they are so much fun. I find it also heaps quicker to colour than water colouring, because with water colouring, I usually wait for the water to dry off a bit before doing the next part. If I didn't wait, I will have the colour bleed into the other!!  But I don't have to do that with the Copics... Speedy as!!

Ok so my pic isn't perfect, because I've taken it at night under my desk lamp, but I've done by best using Photoshop to make it a bit better!! So here it is.........

So Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge Blog has a Sketch this month by Waffles and I've pretty much stuck to it, only things that are a bit diff. are the flowers they are in the bottom corner instead of the top corner.  I've left off the sentiment, and I stuck my Lace up the card a bit more instead of down the bottom.... If your interested in entering the challenge then check it out here 

Kellie's aka Waffles Sketch also goes pretty darn well with Just Magnolia this week - they have a recipe challenge which is 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 Ribbon.  As I said perfect:-)

Paper: Stampin' Up Kraft Card Stock,  2 Magnolia Designer Papers from the Fairytale Collection 2010
Embellishments: 3 Flowers from i am roses, Lace from Tickled Pink Stamps, 1 Sheer Ribbon from Stash, Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds, White Gel Pen, Distressed with Vintage Photo Ink, Pearl Glimmer Mist and Kindy Glitz
Colours: Coloured with Copic Markers
Stamps: Magnolia Flying Tilda from Fairytale Collection 2010

A Quick Card

Good Afternoon everyone

Well this is one card I can show you guys!!  Its for a little girl who is turning 1 tomorrow. I've been busy making Design Team Cards, all of which you have to wait and see... hehehehehehehhe and I have also been a little busy making a few card orders, in between looking after a roll about baby...  and a cat that is rather insistent that he sits on me... regardless of what I'm doing and then he gets annoyed with me and bites me!!  How rude!!

Anyway sorry the pic isn't that fantastic, but is getting dark here, now that the sun has decided to disappear after making a rare appearance today.  So is anyone Else's blog playing up??  Mine just decides to put colour on words and delete stuff, and links don't work!! 

Ok see you guys soon:-)

Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #5

OMGOSH its just soooooo exciting I have been lucky enough to be given a new Lil Lolita Fashionette, you know all the new ones that got released last week at Tickled Pink Stamps..... Gosh aren't they just so Fantastic??  Well I love them and I can't wait to have them all in Rubbah!!!!  You better rush on over to the Tickled Pink Stamps shop and pre-order your today!!

Today is Challenge day at Lil Lolita Boutique and this week we want you to use:


Cool Huh? another easy one!!  So you can use as much or as little ribbon as you like, go for it, can't wait to see what you all make:-) and Guess what Kellie has kindly offered a PRIZE WOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO now get crackin' :-) 

Ok time for Pic's - there's 4 .... I've made my niece, Kirsty, a 18th Birthday Card and a matching Card Box!!! I've never made a card box before and it was fun, even if the first one ended up in the bin...gggrrrrr.  I've used my Fashionette, Miss Evie, straight from 1920!!  So because Miss Evie is kinda a bit Vintage looking, I've made another modern vintage card using some really yummy Graphic 45 papers that I got from USA last week (in the mail of course!!! - just a little bit too far to go!!!)

This one below is the actual card, I've used Pink Velvet Ribbon along the bottom with the blingy clasp for that bit extra VA VA VOOM along with the feathers and the pearl spray!! I love the fashion lady paper that I used in the ovals.... so appropriate don't you think??
I am really please with how my card and box turned out.  I think it's even better than what I dreamed up!!

Ok this is the inside, yeah I actually prettied up the inside!!! But it is a special card after all!!!

And this one is of the Card Box.  Its basically the same except I've coloured my Evie in Pink instead of Brown like what's on the front of the card, just so its a little tiny bit different. 

Kirsty has already received my card and box and she totally loved it!!  Thank goodness it look me ages:-) We also gave her a Pandora Wooden Charm, very spectacular, and she loved that too!! 

Paper: Stampin' Up Kraft Card stock, Graphic 45 Pattern Paper
