The Stamping Chef Challenge

Time for a new team A at The Stamping Chef and as always it is Anything Goes! Super easy to enter for a chance to win some fab digi's from Tamara, The Stamping Chef. 

Here is my Sous Chef card using Fairy Dust! Such a fun image!

This was such a fun image to colour! I coloured her up with copics E000, E00, E11, BG13, BG15, BG18, E13, E15, E18, RV21, RV23, RV25, Y38. The papers are from a 6x6 pack I have, not certain but I think it is the Dovecraft Cupcake paper pad. I also used plaing bazzill for matting. I hand stamped the sentiment and die cut it using xcut oval and scalloped oval nesting dies. The fence die cut from striped paper from the same 6x6 pad, is from La La Land crafts. I matted it onto the same plain cardstock to make it stand out more. I added 3 paper blooms with large sparkling rhinestones in the centres and small adhesive gems around the corners.  Her wings and 'Fairy Dust' have had crystal glamour dust added to them to give them some sparkle! Lastly, I stuck some ribbon around the top corners of the card so they wern't so plain.

Hope you like her, she was so much fun to use and really easy to colour up. Hope you will stop by and check out the rest of the Sous Chefs cards for lots more fab inspiration!

Hope you like her

Surprise Birtdhay Hop!!! Happy Birthday Miss T!!!!

Its the Fab Stamping Chef's birthday!! So we are having a surprise hop for her! If you have stumbled upon this post by chance and want to start at the beginning, then you need to click here! 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Miss T Hope you have the lovely day you deserve and get spoiled rotten!! 

The lovely Betty from Simply Betty Stamps drew up a fab digi of Tamara for us to use for the hop which you can find here if you would like to get your hands on it! Its fab! Thank you for doing it Betty! 

So without further ado, here is my card for Miss T (which is winging its way over to you in the post, if its not there already!)

 I coloured Tamara in using copics SKIN - E000, E00, E11, HAIR & SKIRT - T3, T5, T7, T9, EYES - E11, E13, E15 TOP, LIPS AND HAIR BOW - R35, R37, R39, FLAME - Y38 CUPCAKE - E33, E35.

I used plain black and red cardstock, the spotty paper is a digi paper from Scribble & Scrap and the red and white patterned paper is from a 6x6 pad I picked up at a craft show. The white dots have stickles on them as does the candle and flame but it doesnt show up very well in the piccy. 

The ribbon and flowers are from my stash, I added sparkling rhinestone embellishments to the centres of the flowers and finally added gemstones around the corners of the card to add some bling! 

Hope you like my card for Tamara. Now for the hop list!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #12 Anything Goes

Time for another challenge over at  Scribble and Scrap blog and as always the theme is Anything goes. Also, Lexie has decided that we are also able to use other artists digi's now as well as Scribble and Scrap images and incorporate them with Lexie's fabarooney digi papers! So for this challenge I have used one of my new fave Tilda stamps!

Here is my DT card using Tilda in Evening dress and Monochrome Set 1 digi papers.

I decided to go with the idea of monochrome with a hint of pink and I coloured the image using copics C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7 and R20. The main background paper, the paper Tilda is matted against and the spotty papers are all from the Monochrome Set 1 paper set, they were so easy to work with.  Tilda and the sentiments (typed in Word) have been die cut using circle and lacy circle nesties. The pink polka dot ribbon is from my stash (sorry for the shine off the ribbon, still can't find my camera so having to use my phone!!). The flowers were made using EK Success Large retro flower punch cutting the polka dot and plain black paper, and I added large sparkling rhinestones to the centre to add some bling! I used my quickie glue pen to 'colour in' the patterns on the background paper and then added micro fine pink glitter over the top Also used the pen and glitter around Tilda to 'colour in' the stars and bubbles off her champers! Also did the same by writing over the 18 and the Happy Birthday to make them sparkly too! Lastly, added rhinestones and pearls to finish the card off. 

Really pleased with how this card turned out! Think my mojo may be making a welcome return! lol Hope you like her too. Thank you for stopping by, hope you get chance to stop by the other DT girls blogs for lots more inspiration!

I also added a cheery Lynn corner die cut to the corner in the Bazzill card and lastly added pearls and gems to the corners of the image and the card.
