Sugarnellie GDT Honey Bee

Heres my next  Sugar Nellie Manga She is a total cutie by the name of Honey Bee Available from Funkykits  Ive coloured her with Copics and used Glossy accents to make the jar "glassy"

 Layered the image on black mirri card and bright yellow bazzill Bling Added some spotty black ribbon and a teeny bee charm It was meant to have some handmade paper flowers but after making them I realised that the shade of yellow I had used just didnt match the yellow one the card so they will be recycled another time Think I'll use this for my mothers day card for my mother in law She likes handmade cards so I would get shot if I ever produced a shop bought one for her.
As always I really appreciate you stop by my blog and love when you leave a comment so dont be shy
Bye for now

Sugar Nellie GDT- Mary Hall Afternoon Tea

I seem to have been missing in action.
 Haven't posted for a couple of weeks so am hopelessly behind with my Sugar Nellie Gdt posts Unfortunately life has a way of enforcing the "never rains but it pours" saying. I won't bore you with the details but hope to get back to posting more regularly very soon. Apoligies to everyone whose blogs I have neglected to post comments on too I will do soon soon, sorry
 This is my final Mary Hall stamp from last months gdt stamps I was given. Its a real sweety called Afternoon Tea.
 Available as always from Funkykits She is coloured with copics though I have to admit to not remembering the colours as she was coloured a a couple of weeks ago just never got made into a card til now. Cut out using a Marianne die and backed onto DCWV glitter paper and bazzill cardstock. I've also used the Marianne die for the label and some paper flowers that have small rhinestones added with a new toy, a hot gun gem setter Oh its so much easier than trying to fiddle putting glue on flat backed gems!
Not the fanciest of cards but hopefully the image is enough in itself. I know I love it.
 Please call back soon as I have some great new Sugar Nellie images to play with and will try to be a better blogger Promise! Thanks for stopping by

Kraftin kimmie challenge -scoopy scallops

This is my card for the final February challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie.

 I love this Cinderella stamp and have had a ball trying to acheive the shading I wanted on her gown. I've stuck to shades of warm grey with just a touch of red on her shoes and earrings. The image has been sitting coloured since Sunday but I just could not decide on the layout and papers for the card. I was at Glasgow SECC yesterday at the hobbycrafts show and bought various different backing papers but still couldn't decide so here I was again waiting til the last minute for inspiration When it did finally come I was well chuffed until I realised it was lacking a small detail SCALLOPS! which was pretty important as it was the theme of this weeks challenge. So pulled the card to bits (luckily the glue wasnt dry) and good ol' Martha Stewart came to the rescue, phew!
Anyway hope you like her and keep your fingers crossed for me as I have entered their guest designer for April competition but as there are some very talented crafters around  Im not holding my breath
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it.

Sugar Nellie GDT-My Ted and Me

Todays card is the 2nd of 3 Mary Hall stamps new from Sugar Nellie This little cutie is called My Ted and me and is avaialble now fromFunkykits. I used a sketch for a challenge  and decorated with Wild Orchid Roses and silver leaves and a teddy bear charm from my stash
 I thought I would paper piece this time just for a change.Stamped out first onto plain cardstock and coloured roughtly with copics.
 Next I stamped out on a pink patterned paper and cut out her dress Finally I stamped ted again and coloured him first with Copics and then shaded the darker areas with dark brown prisma pencil I like this method for teddies as you can get a good rounded feel and teds have to look rotund I think
Now I have to admit to a bit of a disaster with my first attempt.
 I had just about finished when a couple of promarkers rolled of the arm of the sofa. I bent down to pick them up came back and went back to finish my last bit of shading when suddenly browny red stuff started to drip all over the image. Ruined! Couldnt think what the heck was happening until I realised that one side of my newly coloured bob had ended up in my saucer of Sansador and had dripped hair colour onto my just finished creation. Sometime I just don't beleive the things I do!
So this is Ted and me #2 minus the  drips
Hope you like
Big wave to my recent new followers (and my established ones too) thanks for joining me

Sugar Nellie GDT -Sweet Dreams

Todays card is a fab new stamp from Mary Hall for Sugar Nellie called Sweet Dreams. Its available now at Funky kits Now it could be used for a get well card or a birthday card its up to you. I've deliberately not put a sentiment on as yet to keep my options open

I've coloured the image with promarkers. Edged it with spun sugar distress ink and layered onto pink and lilac bazzill cardstock. I've used a Martha Stewart doily punch to edge it and  some Docraft papers as backing onto an easel card.
The card is embellished with Wild Orchid roses and a pink chiffon bow.
Hope you like it I have a couple more Mary Hall samples using some great new stamps so be sure to pop back later this week
