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.

That is right - Kellie has been so overwhelmed with pre-orders for this gorgeous new collection from Magnolia Stamps that she has decided to go for ROUND TWO of pre-orders. So if you missed out on a gorgeous stamp on the first round, head over there now to TICKLED PINK STAMPS!!
There are fairies, ballerinas, pirates, princes and princesses, gorgeous backgrounds and accessory stamps. This collection is just gorgeous, I know I ordered quite a few more stamps than I intended on *blushes* they are so fabulous you just cannot help yourself!!
Get in quick before I head back and buy them all, LOL!
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!!

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!
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!
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!!

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:

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)

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!
Be sure to check out the other fabulous DT ladies work at MDUC!

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!
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!!
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!

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!!
