Stampin' for the Weekend, Stamp Something & more...

 On Stampin' for the Weekend this week we have a wonderful sketch by Fiona for you to follow. You can flip, resize or rotate it but we must be able to see the original sketch.

Fiona is also sponsoring the challenge and is putting up 2 new Sugar Nellie stamps for our winner!! Check out the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge Blog to see which stamps you could win.


To colour my image I used a mix of copics and twinkling H2O's. I'm really starting to like the twinks and love the shimmer they give. I don't have very many colours yet. To add some sparkle I have added Star Dust stickles to my flowers.

Anyone for Anya? -  That's Charming
Stamp with Fun - Snowflakes
Charisma Cards - Anything New (stamp, flowers, twinks)

Image: Twinkle Tots Madelynn by The Greeting Farm
Papers: Sassafrass lass Starry Night, PM Black Card
Primas, buttons, scrappers floss & charm from my stash.


Stamp Something has a great colour combo for you to work with this week - BLUE AND WHITE - and straight away I thought of my Magnolia papers :) So glad I'm getting to use them up. And of course what better image to use only this uuuuber sweet Tilda.

I've coloured her using distress inks and distressed my papers with Weathered Wood. As I really enjoyed Magnolia's paper pleating challenge I decided to do it on this card too!! Instead of sanding the pleats I inked them to make them stand out from the backing paper. I kept the colour combo going with white(ish) cherry blossoms, white pearl spray and some white tulle.

Don't forget to pop over to both challenge blogs to see some pretty fantastic inspiration from the other ladies, or go to their individual blogs using the links on my side bar -->

I am also entering this card into the Crafty Creations challenge - Textures,  and the Creative Inspirations challenge - New Year, New Products (pearl spray, flowers)

TFL and have a wonderful weekend!

Both your cards are amazing. Love your coloring. I know I will be saying this again and again. Your coloring is perfect. It´s as if the image comes alive. You are so talented.
I adore Magnolia stamps but the other one you have used are so cute and lovely to. It´s such a great idea to fold the papers like you do. It looks so amazing.
