For this lovely stamped image I have from the Country Cousins collection called Country Garden I have coloured her in using my copics. The dark blue dp is called Boogieboard Stitches from kimemories.com, the flowery dp and leaf dp are both from the Pocket Full of Posies paper stack from DCWV and the embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkey's. The large flower is made up from flowers from my stash and the 2 blue single flowers were sent to me in a RAK from my friend Wynneth. The brads are from Papermania, the pearl gems are from Hobbycraft and the pink corner which I thought would match the coloured flowers in the image are from a Scrapbook Kit from Papercellar.

What a lovely sketch this was to interpret. I used one of my new stamps from the Summer collection and coloured her in with my copics. I then cut her out with my curved rectangle Nestie and mounted with sticky pads. The blue dp is from DCWV Spring Stack, the green circle dp is from Stampin' Up, the blue embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkeys and both the plain blue and plain green card is from Crafters Companion.
The flowers are Prima and the brads and gems are both Papermania. I also used a Sentiment from the same summer collection.

I really enjoyed making this card as it features one of my favourite Tilda images. I used Tilda as a Butterfly and coloured her in copics and used Shimmerz Bubblegum around the edges of the wings. I mounted her onto card from Pieces of Me called Watermelon which I cut with my scalloped square nestie.
The plain dp is also from Pieces of Me - Watermelon, the embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkey's and the patterned dp is from Blossoms and Butterflies paper stack. The flowers are Prima Daisy Dreams - Juicy and the leaves I cut out using my Xcut leaf punch out of Sissix adhesive card. The sentiment is from the Whiff of Joy General Sayings Collection and the gems are from Papercellar.

Thought I would have a go at something I have never done before. I bought a pack of Bind It All covers and a pack of note paper and made a little note book. I coloured one of my Gorjuss Girls 2 stamped images with promarkers and mounted with sticky pads. I covered the covers with dp from DCWV Spring Glitter Stack and stuck some Papermania flower gems onto it. I used my Crop-A-Dile to create the holes and used some Papermania 3/16" round metallic eyelets. I used ribbon from my stash.
I was so pleased to have had my new Whiff of Joy Summer Kit come through my door on Saturday so straight away I mounted them and stamped a few images off and decided I would use this one for this challenge.
A very dear friend at work whom I have worked with for nearly 15 years will be leaving in June to hopefully move down to Cornwall and thought instead of a leaving card from me a card like this would be more appropriate.
I used my new copic ciao markers to colour her in, then cut her out using my curved rectangle nestie. I also used the same nestie set for the embossed polka dot card from Silly Monkey's and mounted both with sticky pads. The dp is from the DCWV Spring Glitter Stack. The flowers are artificial flowers from Hobbycraft which my friend Samantha gave me the idea for as well as ending me some in a RAK. The sentiment is from the Circle of Friendship stamps from Stampin' Up and the ribbon also came from Samantha in the same RAK.

I have just recently purchased some copics so was really happy when I was told about this challenge blog. Over at copiccreations they have a different colouring challenge which this week is to create blonde hair and I hope I have achieved that. The prize up for grabs are 3 Magnolia Stamps from Magnolia-icious
The image I have used is Willow with Basket and have used Y11, Y12 and E37 as I don't have the usual colours which most people use. I used a sketch from the Whiff of Joy challenge created by Katharina. The plain purple card is from Crafter's Companion, the embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkey's. The dp is from DCWV Pocket full of Poses. For the scalloped edge I used my Stampin' Up border punch. The flowers are from my stash, the brad from Laura Ashley Blossom, the gem is Papermania and the sentiment is from the Whiff of Joy General Sayings set.
I'm really looking forward to taking part in future challenges for copics.

Here is my second attempt at using my new copic pens.
I have used my Gorjuss Girls 1 image Sent With Love and cut her out with my curved rectangle nestie and mounted with sticky pads. The lilac backing paper is from Crafters Companion, the patterned dp is from the April Cornell for daisyd's Sweet Baby Jane Collection called Sleepy Time. The embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkey's. The buttons are from Papermania Embellishment Pink/Purple Just For You set and the flower is from the Prima Daisy Dreams Juicy pack which my friend Wynneth bought me back from her latest visit to the USA.
I have used a masking technique on this card and for the background I have used the Butterfly background stamp from the Chasing Butterflies collection. For something a bit different for me I had my new craft investment arrive yesterday so thought I would try them out for the first time - my Copic Ciao pens!
I cut Tilda out with a Labels One Nestie and mounted with sticky pads. I have used some Shimmerz Blingz Pixie Dust on the wings but is really hard to see! The dp is from the Blossoms and Butterflies Stack. I used faux stitching around the outside of the cutout image and around the edge of the card. Stitching isn't my best but had a go anyway! The flowers were sent to me from my friend Wynneth from her trip to the USA. The spacer is from HobbyHouse and the brad is Papermania.

For this challenge I used a Hanglar and Stanglar stamped image sent to me in a RAK and coloured her in using promarkers. The patterned dp is from Papermania Signature paper pack called Blueberry Hill and the embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkey's. The gems I used are from Papercellar, the large flower is Imaginisce and the small flowers are Prima. I used a flower charm from MeiFlower.

I can't believe that I was the lucky lady to win the above candy over at corrosivecreationsbyjanet and lots more that was added once so many other entries were added. I am still in happy shock and its been at least half an hour since I found out I had won! I still keep looking at the list on Janet's blog to see what I won. I'm really looking forward to receiving them.

I've started to really love using my Magnolia Tilda stamps. I coloured this Tilda with promarkers, cut her out and using sticky pads stuck her to a circle with was cut out from a piece of 12x12 cardstock called The Sharon Ann delightful collection Blue Blossoms and was also used for the main backing. The embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkey's and the scalloped edge was cut using my Stampin' Up scallop cutter using card from my stash. The flowers are Prima Daisy Dreams and the ribbon was given to me in a RAK.

For this sketch I decided to create a New Baby card as I've never done one before using stamped images.
The image I have used is one of my latest purchases Lazy Ellie from Stamposaurus which I coloured in with promarkers and mounted onto card from Kimemories called Watermelon and is also used as the larger strip. The light pink white polka dot dp is from Stampin' Up, the dark pink large polka dot paper is from Blossoms and Butterflies Stack and the pink embossed polka dot paper is from Silly Monkey's. The flowers I received in a RAK, the brad on the larger flower is a pearl brad from Papermania and the centres on the smaller flowers are stick on gems free with a magazine. The sentiment is a rub-on from Papermania.
I have really enjoyed using my Tilda stamps lately. I coloured this image in with distressed inks, cut her out and mounted her with sticky pads onto an oval cut out with an oval shaped Nestie leant to me by my friend Vicky. I then mounted that with sticky pads onto my scalloped shaped Nestie cut out. The patterned dp is a double sided sheet from The Sharon Ann Delightful Collection called Blue Blossoms and the lemon plain paper is a double sided sheet from Papermania called Diagonal Dots. I used my scallop edge punch from Stampin' Up. The ribbon I received in a RAK and the sticky gems and flower gems are Papermania.
