Cupcake Pixie

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a card that I have an order for, I have used CC Designs Swiss Pixie Cupcake Birgitta and Spring Bench Stamps which I purchased from Bizzy Bec’s Online Store. I have followed the Sketch over at Cute Card Thursday

This card is for a little girl turning 5, I masked the swiss pixie so it looks like she is sitting on the bench, I coloured her with copic’s and have put the long list at the end of this post.
Cupcake GirlAll the supplies were from my stash, the paper was a freebie in a magazine. I have just been waiting for the right card to use it on, I think its very cute. The die is nesties label three. Here is a couple of shots of the inside.

Princess Tilda

Hi Everyone,
Well have you ever had a day when you just should have “put the copic’s down” that was me yesterday. I only just got Princess Tilda a week ago and I thought that she would be great for the lovely sketch by Donalda over at the Just Magnolia Challenge, so I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped her on to Copic Xpress blending card. That’s when the real fun started after 4 attempts at her dress this is what I finally came up with , lets just say she has seen alot of ink now. LOL
Princess TildaFor her dress and shoes I used Bo2,000,0000 and the gloves and petticoat c00 and atyou spica clear, Hair E25,30,50, Skin E0000,000,00 R20 and white Inkssentials opaque pen. I use my Magnolia Doo Hickey die Old Swedish lace and nesties 4 to cut out the image. I sponged with Milled Lavender Distress ink and the gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts which are sponsoring this weeks challenge and have a fabulous prize up for grabs. The DP is from Prima Annalee Collection – Poetry. The pearls are from Kaiser craft. The sentiment is computer generated.

For You Mum

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a card to share with you all, I received my first order from the Magnolia-licious Store I used Secret Tilda and Magnolia Doo Hickey Die Old Swedish Lace, the store has everything imaginable for all your Magnolia cravings, if you havn’t already you must check them out. For You Mum
The background I created myself ( I didn’t have any DP in the colour that I wanted) I used Kaiser english rose stamp in a random pattern with ranger perfect pearls, I hope you can see it ok in the photo. I followed the sketch by the extremely talented Bev!

9thmaymumsarespecialsketch2This Sketch is for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge #23 Mums are Special Sketch the flowers on my card are from WOC including the new sweetheart blossoms in white, they are the cutest little flowers I just love them. Wild Orchid Crafts is in the UK, if you are like me and live in Australia, don’t hesitate to place an order. They have excellent customer service and the shipping is very reasonable.
I coloured Tilda with copic markers G0000, RV0000, BV0000, E0000,000,00,44,42,50, R20, W00. I kept her very pale because I wanted the softer look, just a tip to any new copic users like me, when using the 0000 collection wait a little while between layers, because as they dry the colours become much more prominent.
This is the inside of the card.
