Cupcake Box

This box came from the Stempelmaleins (love that word) site and I thought I should give it a try.  I am quite happy with how it turned out.  The pictures are lousy though. 

Although this is perfect for a cupcake, you could also use it for a gardening gift box. 

I used the Garden Tilda and colored her with the following Copic markers;
Overalls - YG 67, 63,61
Pocket on overalls - YG 93, 91
Top (blouse) - V 25, 22, 20
Boots - YG 97, 95, 93, 91
Skin - E 50, 000, 21, 00 and E 93 for cheeks
Hoe - C 6, 5, 3, 1
Ground - W 5, 3, 1

On the other side of the box I used the Magnolia watering can and colored with the following;
C 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2; G 46, 43, 40; RV 52, 00, 55, 63, 66; R 56; YG 21; and I used the Smooch Illuminate on the butterfly

One of the "hole" side of the box.

One more of the other side top flap.

I am entering this one at:

Wish me luck and I love reading your comments.

Believe in Magic

I am such a huge Harry Potter fan that I was absolutely thrilled when Magnolia released the Tilda Wizard stamp!  Here is the card I created using this adorable stamp.

Here is a close up of the coloring.

I have used Copics to color in the following colors:

Robe and socks - Y23, 26, 28
Skirt and belt and shoes - B000, 12, 14
I also went over the shoes with C1 and C2
Skin - E0000, 000, 00, 21 and E93 on cheeks
Hair - E31, 33, 35, 37
Wand - C1, 3, 5
I painted the stars with Gold Lame Smooch

Here is one of the pull out.

I am entering this in two different challenges. 
7 Kids College Fund - use dies cuts and/or punches
Color Me Creative - favorite yellow combination in Copic colors

Wish me luck and as always, I love reading your comments.  Any questions, ask away!!

Spring Is Here

Here is a new card just to celebrate spring which will hopefully arrive soon.  I still have snow in my backyard and really would like to see it gone for good now.

The stamp is from Magnolia Ink and is called Tilda with Daisy.  I colored her with the following Copic colors:

Dress, socks and bow - BV 000, 00, 02
Lace on dress and shoes - E 40, 42, 43, 44
Hair - YR 24; E 50, 51, 31, 33
Skin - E 50, 000, 00, 21
Daisy - Y 00, 000, 13
Stem - G 20, 21

Here is one close up of the coloring for you.

And one of the inside.

The papers are from a very old 6 x 6 pad that I have had forever but they were K & Company; the image was cut with a Spellbinders scalloped oval die; the lace was from the stash; the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts; the tiny butterfly in the top right is a Spellbinders and the one on the top left is Memory Box.

As always, I love to read your comments and I would love to know what you think of this one.

I am entering it in three different challenges:
7 Kids College Fund - Shades of Spring
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Your favorite tool (mine is the Cuttlebug)
