I have coloured up an image by Aurora Wings, it’s called Star Dancer and is full of little fiddly things to colour. It was quite fun, actually! I used my trusted copics for this and added some distress ink around the edge and some frantage. Oh, and of course, a touch of glitter to a couple of parts of the outfit.
The flowers are mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts. I’ve got some bits and bobs from the now sadly closed down Live and Love Crafts. Various dies from Memory Box, Noor Design and QuicKutz.
Another photo won’t hurt.
Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (outfit) G40, G82, G94, G99, YG03 and a white pen.
It has been a long time since I posted a card with a pre-coloured image, but it has been even longer since I posted one without an image on it at all. In fact, I don’t remember when that even was. That means I am due to post one, I am sure!!
Here is a card I made for my aunt’s 50th birthday. One of the blogs I admire is by Klaudia and her posts inspired me to make this card. Check out the totally awesome stuff on her blog.
I roughed up the paper, which is solid purple card and Maja Design, to give it a shabby feel. All the butterflies and leaves are made using Noor Design dies. The numbers are using QuicKutz dies whereas all the flowers are by Wild Orchid Craft apart from the berry looking ones which are from Live and Love Crafts. LLC is also the place where I purchased the lace.

Yup! I made it! I am now officially a Tiddly Inker! I am so happy to be a part of their team until the end of the year and I cannot wait to make more with their images. They are just too cute! Here is my first post as a member of the Tiddly Inks Design Team.
It is Fabby Friday over at the challenge blog. That means we are showcasing some of the adorable Tiddly Inks images! There is also a challenge currently themed School Rules. Check it out! Anyway, I’ve decided to use Wedding Bells for my card this Friday.
It is coloured in with copics. I used papers from Pion, lace and berry looking flowers from Live and Love Crafts, Noor Design butterfly dies and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

It’s been a while since I posted anything again. Work still takes up quite a lot of time, but lately I have spent a lot more time on crafting as well. Soon I will get more added here as well. I must have made about 30 cards so far this month. It’s a bit therapeutic and it’s nice to be properly back into it.
This card was made on request by a co-worker. She picked a card I’ve posted on the blog previously and said she wanted something similar, but slightly bigger and purple was a must. You can see the card she picked out on the right here. This is what I came up with.
I have used a pre-coloured topper fromThe Hobby House. The purple paper is Papermania. There are a lot of Wild Orchid Crafts products used as well: all the flowers, the purple ribbon and bow, and the heart shaped doily. The lace is purchased at Bikuben, and the punchers are by Martha Stewart.
First I have a slight announcement. The Hobby House is having a fun challenge this month where you can enter both old and new creations. All that is required is that you use one of their toppers on your creation! What’s great is that even us on the design team get to enter! Another reason for me to get my stuff added to the blog this month, hehe. Their toppers really are quite fantastic and I have loved using them over the past year, long before I asked to join their team. Check out the challenge here and the toppers here!
The reason I went to Thailand last month was because a friend of mine was getting married there. The wedding was absolutely beautiful! When I got back home I made her this card and the matching box for it.
The card is made with various bits from my stash as well as a Hobby House topper and pearls, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and various punches by Martha Stewart. The tiny little jar was bought at a crafting faire last year and inside I put sand I brought with me from the beach the wedding was held on, in Hua Hin.
The box is made with flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. A bigger jar of sand from the beach with a tiny little bow made from a hanging strap on one of my jumpers; it was the only one I cound find that was thin enough, heh. The punches are from Martha Stewart, the paper from Pion, the dies are spellbinders and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.
Here is a photo of the card in the box. The ribbon around the edge of the box is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
