Whiff of Joy DT - March Release Preview

Good afternoon!! This is my second post of the day so if you've come looking for the Waltzingmouse Stamps March sneaks then you'll find it on the post below, or simply click HERE.

In this post I have 2 cards to share, as blogger played silly beggars with me and my post didn't publish on Friday while I was away. 

On March 1st Whiff of Joy are releasing 2 new lines of stamps, Norma Fickel's Gnomes and Elizabeth Bell's Spring collection which was available as a kit and will now be released as individual stamps. Both lines are ADORABLE!!!
I've been in 'orange' mode lately and this card is no exception. This is one seriously pretty image and the first one to jump out at me when deciding which to ink up first.

My papers are Basic Grey and dark brown cardstock and they've all been machine stitched. The sheer ribbon, charm, pearls and flowers are all from my stash. 

Copics used:
Skin/Blush - E00, 02, 21, 51
Dress - YR14, 15, 16, 18
Hair - E42, 43, 44
Shoes - E50, 51, 53

On this card I've used one of the new Gnomes by Norma Fickel.  I am a big fan Norma's Gnomes and was thrilled to see more being released.

The papers are by Prima and are called Sweet Fairy - again, I've machine stitched them. I coloured my image, trimmed it out and mounted it with 3D dots. Then I added loadza yummy flowers, ribbon, pearls and pearl topped brads.

To finish off I broke out the Star Dust Stickles and added it to the flowers, image and sentiment :D 

Copics used:
Skin - E00, 02, 21, 51
Blues - B12, 14, 16
Pinks - R81. 83, 85
Browns - E42, 43, 44 (shoes) E40, 41, 42 (vest)
Yellows - Y15, 17
