Edwin brings some yummy-ness

I made this card up the other week, just because, as ya do :) Isn't this Edwin adorable, I just think he is the cutest little guy in his chefs outfit. I have made a gate fold card and popped Edwin and the sentiment up on foam adhesive for a little dimension (you can see it in the bottom picture).
I added some red glitter here and there in this card an afterwards wish I hadn't, lol! Oh well, live and learn :) I have distressed all my edges and used the checked ribbon (which matches his pants, hehehe) to hold the card closed.

All stamps, DP and the doily are from Tickled Pink Stamps.
This card also plays along with a few challenges (which is exciting for me as most of my cards recently have been DT work):
Just Magnolia - Anything goes
Cupcake craft challenges - red and white

Candy alert!!

Rach is back with sugar free candy! Check it out here, it's delish :)

Thursday, April 22, 2010


I'm back with some more Kraftin' Kimmie goodness (I am so obsessed with them already), today it's Polly the bar wench. The sentiment on this card is also a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, from the pirate sentiment set. When i saw this sentiment I envisioned it with this stamp and I laughed sooo hard, I just new I would have to get them all and make it :) Yup, I have a bit of a warped sense of humour! So, there is not too much more to say about this, the card and papers are all scraps I had left over from another card, I love it so much I went and bought more yesterday, and they also had the same pattern in blue, so I just had to have some of that too, lol! The pink daisy is from Bizzy Becs, The butterfly is a MS punch (are you sick of it yet, because I'm not) I have coloured her with copics and the cherry blossoms and all stamps were from Tickled Pink Stamps. Oh, I forgot to mention this is a little easel card (but you could probably figure that out) it's a 4 inch circle, and so sweet considering my cards are usually around 6 inches.
And speaking of tickled pink make sure you check out the blog for an exciting sneak peek!!
I am also going to enter his over at Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #55!

Tickled Pink to meet Wedding Dress Kimmie :)

Ok, ok, that's not really her name, this is actually Marie Antoinette and she is a new release, but when I first saw her I was reminded of my wedding dress, they are even posing in almost identically!! So from now on she shall be called Wedding Dress Kimmie (by me anyways!) I just hope my wedding dress does not make my butt look quite that big :) (yep, I went crazy and ordered a dress I have never seen in real life, it should arrive in July, maybe sooner, *eek* and I am hoping I don't look like a giant marshmallow)
Anyway, back to the card, i have coloured he in with copics, the DP and blue card stock is from my stash, the base is kraft. I have also punched out a corner in kraft and then sponged it lightly with gold ink, it looks as if it has been glimmer misted, which was a wonderful surprise. The net ribbon stuff is from a local sewing store, I have tied it to close the card (it's a gate fold) and then I have added a couple of pearl pins as a bit of interest. I tried adding flowers and things but the image is actually quite large so it just ended up being too crowded. Awwww, isn't she a darling, I am completely in love with these Kraftin Kimmies now. You can get yours from Tickled Pink Stamps and while your there make sure you get your order in for the new Magnolia fairytale collection. Kellie is now taking her second pre-order so be quick! And don't forget your gift vouchers for Mothers Day!!!

Masking my Magnolias Downunder

This week at MDUC we are challenging you to mask your images!I have had this tin stamp for ages and this is the first time I have used it. I bought it to sit this Tilda on, they are so perfect together :) I have coloured with copics (I can see now why people call them their babies and completely fall in love with them, I'm already hooked!) Inked the edges of my image and glittered that edge and the edge of the DP. There is also heaps of glitter on the image, which you cannot see in the pic, and on the butterfly punches. The image ended up being pretty big so I have kept the card lay out pretty simple, with a bow and some flowers for embellishment. Sorry, another washed out picture due to the overcast sky.
The stamps and DP are from Tickled Pink Stamps, there is a sale on not and the new fairytale collection in store for pre order at 15% off!!

Make sure to check out Magnolia Down Under Challenges for more fabulous inspiration for out lovely DT!!!

They are here!!!

Magnolia Fairytale Collection Pre-Order has started over at Tickled Pink Stamps, get in quickly as they will be very popular! And if we sell out, as I can see this range being VERY popular, we will be having a second pre-order.

There is also going to be 15% OFF all stamps in store, which has started NOW.

There are charms to suit the new range and a range of paper doilies in store too.

It's all happening this weekend over at Tickled Pink Stamps!

Anya Ink

TGIF. Did someone say Pink and Sparkly... yep, they did, it's the challenge over at Anya Ink! I mush have been a bit psychic (I know what you are all thinking and I did spell that right, it's not meant to be psycho!) as my last card for Anya Ink was pretty damn pink and sparkly too! I even used the same image, I am absolutely in love with these creepy cakes (and I probably say that every time I use them, lol) and I got a new butterfly punch so I had to use her to match :)
I also got some kraft card stock in the mail the other day and this was the first card I got to use it on, I can see I will be using a lot more of this in the near future! So... the papers are Heidi Grace, from my stash, the punch is MS, I have inked the edges and then Kindy Glitzed the heck out of them as well as the edges of my DP and the image in places (not that it shows up in the photo!!) The sentiment is an old Stampin' Up one, stamped in brown as I sort of wanted it to blend with the paper a bit and I thought black would make it stand out too much, and then I glittered it. So thats it really, make sure you check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work here, and enjoy your weekend!

Spesch stamps pops the question

Aren't these guys the cutest couple, they are a new digi over at Spesch Stamps. This couple are the perfect image for an engagement card. I have not seen many images around suitable for engagement cards so this release is pretty exciting!!
Sorry about the poor photo quality, it has been cold and overcast all week and I am having a lot of trouble getting photos. The purples have come out the worst unfortunately, looks very washed out and grey, you will just have to use our imagination :)
I have coloured the image with copics and he ring is coloured with silver gel pen and the diamond has had kindy glitz added. I have also glittered the edges on most of my papers.
I have left it pretty simple, I was not too sure about girly-ing it up too much as the card is for the couple, not just the girl, lol.
Make sure you get on over to Spesch Stamps and see what the rest of the fabulous DT have created with this gorgeous image!!

Mad for Markers challenge #1

Woo Hoo, it's the first ever challenge over at Mad for Markers, and it's a colour challenge! The challenge is to use:
BG15, R20 & E00.
I did not have BG15, but substituted some other aqua colours. I was stumped for days on what image to use on my card and when I say Tracy's colouring tutorial I thought "Hmmmm, I have not used my Madelynn stamp in AGES, and she is sooooo sweet"
Yeah, I know, another easel card, but i have been seeing so many different shapes around lately and I just HAD to try a butterfly one. I just googled butterfly template, picked my fave and printed it off in 3 different shapes so I could mat them. The papers are Kaisercraft, the pearl flourish is prima (and completely delicious) the large butterfly punch is a Martha Stewart punch I have been stalking the post for and it arrived today, finally! The smaller butterfly is just a random little punch I have had for ages. The leaves are a sizzix die from Stampin' up (also arrived today) and the cherry blossoms are from Tickled Pink Stamps. I have slathered kindy glitz on the butterflies and the edges of all my mats, the cherry blossoms, leaves and the flower on her hat.
So, enough waffle, and congrats if you have made it this far, here is my card:
Here is a pic of just the top of the card:
and another of just the bottom:
I have used the following copics:
Skin - E00, E50, E51, R20
Hair - E71, E47, E49, E31
Aquas - BG34, BG49
Pinks - R22, R20, R11, R00
Thanks for looking and making it through the waffle :)

A Spesch-ial little bug

I have had this lovely little lady on my desk for a while now waiting to be played with. I love all these spring themed stamps from Spesch Stamps, this is Spring Ladybug. I finally stole myself a moment to play yesterday, but I have been suffering from a lack of mojo recently so I kept this one pretty simple. I think the paper is Cosmo cricket, but I could be wrong, I'm terrible at remembering these things after I have hacked into it and the name is long gone, lol! The net style ribbon, buttons and string are all from my stash and the sentiment is from a SU sentiments set. Be sure to head on over to Spesch Stamps and meet our fabulous new additions to the DT, and why not grab yourself a stamp or two while your at it :)

Some Sweet November in April!

Lol, sorry everyone, don't panic Kylie, I scheduled this post on the weekend so I would not forget about it but then I forgot to come back and add the waffle, oops! I thought of it when I woke up this morning and hoped that it was tomorrow I had scheduled it for and I was not late :)
Anyways, the DT challenge for the Pink Ladies this week was to use a sweet November stamp and use some flowers. I am so excited to be on the DT when the shop is expanding and to be able to show you all of these wonderful new stamps.
I have made an easel card today using the adorable Chanter Heartsong. She has ben coloured with copics and I have used my nesties to cut her out and mount her. Some glitter here and there (I have glittered her wings and the pink bits on the bottom of her skirt with a fine glitter but it does not show up in the photo)

Chanter Heartsong, cherry blossoms and personalised stamps are all available from Tickled Pink Stamps, and don't forget to head on over to the blog to enter into the massive stamp give away!

The battle continues for the Dowunder Divas!!

Hello, hello and happy Easter to all, I hope you are not suffering tummy aches from too much chocolate.
The Downunder Divas have made it through to the second round thanks to Sammi's gorgeous card last week so this week I accepted the challenge to make an easel card.
I could not resist using another creepy cake image and keeping with the Twisted Tea theme :) I would be eternally grateful if you had the time to head over and vote for us here...
Wish us luck, I would hate to be the one who let's the team down so vote, vote, vote... lol!

Magnolia Down Under thanks you

This weeks challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is 'Thank You'. I Found this little spoon charm in a local sewing store last week and I had to use it with this stamp. This DP is also something I picked up recently, the bunches of roses made me think of vases of roses in little old ladies houses, just cut from the garden. Everything is from my stash, the label is a nestie die cut and the stamp is from Tickled Pink (formerly Magnolia Down Under store) I have done a bit of sewing here and there and Tilda is coloured with my copics (my first copic-ed Tilda).
Be sure to check out the other fabulous DT ladies work at MDUC!

Shake that Tailfeather!!

So have you all been over to tickled pink to drool over the gorgeous new stamps? When I saw this sassy little lady I knew she was a must have.
This is my card for the masking challenge set for the Pink Ladies by Kylie. She asked us to mask a Magnolia image with an image from another line of stamps and Viviene here seemed like the perfect match for my Magnolia piano from the Raising the Ceiling collection.

The card stock (it's purple, I still can't get the colour right in the photo, sorry) is from the stash and the embossed aqua card is left over from a card I will be showing you maybe tomorrow or the next day (I'm a tease, aren't I) The sequin zig-zag trim was something I found in a box the other week, I love a good discovery :) The sentiment comes with the stamp, did I mention she was a Kraftin' Kimmi, her name is Vivienne. I have coloured her with copics Huh, I just realise I have made a card without using DP. The punches in the corners also qualify this card for the Kraftin' Kimmi challenge, they want to see punches or die cuts.
Head over to the store now to get your hands on this cheeky little lady, and, back by popular demand, for a limited time only you can also get personalised stamps... but be quick!

I'm Tickled Pink to tell you the news...

Big news from the Magnolia Down Under Store, we have had a name change and now we are called Tickled Pink Stamps. Why change the name I hear you ask... yep, I did, well it is because Kellie is expanding the store and adding some new stamps, Kraftin' Kimmi (I love these), Sweet November, Baby buds and lots more as well as the new fairy tale collection from Magnolia which will be available soon!

The stores domain name will change next week from www.kelliewinnell.com.au/shop/ to www.tickledpinkstamps.com.au so keep an eye out for that.

As well as a new name the store now has a blog where you can find out what the Pink Ladies (the DT girs) have been creating, get all the inside NEWS and specials/bargains first and just general waffles...

So head on over to the store and check out all the fabulous new stock, and it's on sale too so grab yourself a bargain!!

Happy Release Day!

It's release day over at Spesch Stamps!!!
As soon as I saw this gorgeous spring flower stamp I had to colour her up, she is just gorgeous and as the most amazing flowing hair.
I must apologize or the photo, purples must be my weakness because I can never manage to photograph them right. The card stock looks black and the ribbon and DP's look a bit washed out and grey. Oh well, I will just have to figure it out because I am not going to stop using purple, lol!
So be sure to head on over to Spesch Stamps to get your hands on the newly release stamps, or some of the old ones :)

The new look Anya Ink is here

Hello lovely ladies, just a super quickie post for me tonight (I am scheduling this last night, Glenn's cricket presentation night started half an hour ago and I'm not even ready yet!)

It's the start of a new challenge over at Anya Ink and this week the theme is Anything Goes!
When I first saw these creepy cakes I did not really like them but the more I saw them in sneak peeks the more they grew on me and by their release date I had to have them. This is the first of many creepy cake themed cards, I'm sure, not that this little lovely is particularly creepy, lol.
I found this paper in my stash, left over from my mum's birthday card, it seemed perfect with this image and I loved the pattern so much I did not want to cover it up so I kept everything really simple, a few punched and glittered butterflies (I have a MS butterfly punch ordered and I was hoping it would arrive in time for this card but it did not :( I distressed and glittered my edges and glittered the butterflies on the image, which was coloured with copics, loving them! I went to do a little faint shading around the image, love the way it makes it pop, and accidentally picked up the wrong shade of grey and only realised half way through colouring I was using my dark marker, D'oh! Blonde moment :) I must pay more attention next time, lol. Be sure to head over here and check out the fabulous work of our amazing new DT!!
