How Many Sleeps?!

Hi all! It's a rare occasion I pop in on a Sunday but I got some Stamping Bella happy mail this week and I've been colouring them all up

The stamp I used is called Sleepy Bunny Wobble. I had a little play around with it and attempted to make a Christmas card out of it. My little Bunny Wobble is waiting to see Santa. Not sure I nailed it, lol. 

I made a Scalloped circle easel card, using both scalloped and classic circle dies. I will have a tutorial on this very soon so keep an eye out for that.

C1, C3, R81, R83, 0
Hat - BG72, BG75,BG78. R22, R35, R37, R39

Stamping Bella Sweaty Chicks

Howdy all! I got some Stamping Bella happy mail today and I just couldn't wait to sit down and colour some up. The kids heard me squeal and run up to the craft room so knew better than to even try to stop me, lol. I am just adoring the Cool Chicks line of stamps and the Sweaty Chicks are right up there in my favourites list -  probably because I can totally relate to them :P


The card is very clean and simple and quite small. I think it would be a great card to give to those girlfriends who shared a sense of humour - while you all sat around drinking coffee, ha!

Molly My Sweet

Hi guys! I'm back today with another Tiddly Inks card. It's a feast or a famine on this blog, lol. 
I like to colour more than one image at a time so I usually end up with batches of cards to have on hand for Birthdays and other occasions. I tend to make the card san sentiment so that I can add one later to suit the occasion I'm using it for. 

This card features Molly my Sweet
I cut the card base, and layers, on the Silhouette. It measures approx 5.5" x 5.75". I also cut a shaped panel for inside the card. 


Copic Markers
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20. White Gel Pen
Hair - E70, E71, E74, E77, E79

If you're on Instagram you can find me HERE. I will be posting my #thedailymarker30day makes there over the next few weeks. 

That's it from me for today. I am off to watch a little TV and chill out for the evening. 
Have a good one!

Little Witch Lucy - Happy Halloween

Hello and happy Saturday!! It's a wet and humid day here today so I am holed up in the craft room, with the fan on, hoping the kids don't find me for a while, lol. 

Today I am sharing a Halloween card I made.  I am also participating in the Daily Marker 30 Day colouring challenge. You can read about it HERE

Okay, so my card features C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie - Little Witch Lucy. She is definitely a too cute to spook character, although the eyeball freaks my 10 year old out. Haha! 


I cut the card base, and layers, on the Silhouette and added some cheesecloth between the layers. I cut the image out with a stitched circle die and stamped some grungy swirls on it using Pumice Stone distress ink.  The stitched oval is popped up on 3D foam dots. 

Copic Markers used:

Wryn Super Spy - Super Gift Box

Hi all! I'm popping back in today with a 'super' project I made featuring Wryn Super Spy from Tiddly Inks. This is one of my favourite images to use on 'super' Birthday cards and gift boxes for my nieces and friends. 


I cut the box out on the Silhouette, but these types of boxes are quite easy to do by hand too. I also created some layers on the silhouette so that everything was really tidy. I used some dies to cut out the stars and the pennants at the sides of the box. 


Wryn is coloured with Copic markers
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - E50, E53, E55
Outfit - BV20, BV22, BV25, BV29, C7, 100.
Glasses - C1, C3, C5

I fussy cut the image with a small precision scissors and popped her up, on 3D foam dots, onto a stitched circle which I cut using a die. The "Super" is also a Die cut. To finish off I added some enamel dots around the image and on the sides.
