Simply Sassy

Hi all I hope you are well and enjoying the weekend.
I have for some time been drooling over the wonderful Sassy images that Nic aka Coops uses and decided to buy myself a couple and I am not disappointed, in fact they are beautiful to colour and I will be getting a few more when I have saved up a few pennies.
This card I have made for the following challenges:
Before I started to buy Copics I used promarkers I have loads but have rarely used them, once again I was inspired by Coops to give them another go and I am more than happy with the outcome.
I cut two circles with my circle cutter then distressed around the edges with TH distress inks, I stamped the image onto the card then stamped a second one which I cut out, coloured and 3'd it with silicone onto the first image.  The papers are SU I added roses from Wild Orchid and the large Daisy that I bought from Crafty Emma's store, the lace is also from Crafty Emma's.  The sentiment is from a butterfly kit that I bought over 10yrs ago but only just found the stamps. Below is a closer look at Simply Sassy.
I hope you like my card and maybe, like me, have found a little inspiration.
I want to apologise for my lack of blogging but things have been going on but I hope to visit you all later, but until then take care, hugs.

I have used one of my many Tilda stamps I stamped her with Versafine Onyx Black and coloured with Copics I distressed the edges using TH Vintage Photo Ink.  The papers are Fancy Pants, Beach Bum that I got from Crafty Emma's store.  I added some ribbon and lace, the lace was cream but I coloured it green with promarkers.  The corners and butterflies have been punched out using my SU and Tonic punches.  I added a few flowers to the corners.

Pixie Dust Studio GDT Card plus a Tilda

Hi all a few weeks ago I was asked if I would like to be a Guest DT for the month of June at 
Pixie Dust Studios and guess what......I said YES, lol.
I felt so honoured and chuffed that they felt I was worthy of this wonderful opportunity and so pleased to be a June Pixie...I love it, lol.

The challenge this week is
We would love to see your homemade embellishments and I know that there are so many wonderful talented people out there that show such fabulous items such as flowers, buttons, etc, and we really want to see them.

Here is my GDT card.
I decided to use the June Pixie for my card and have coloured her with Copics, I also used Glittered Red Crystal Lacquer for her hat and Glossy Accents for her trousers and the Strawberry.
The papers are all Bearlymine, I added some gingham ribbon, die cut, embossed sentiment and used an oval Nestie for the frame. 
I have been watching alot of Create and Craft and picked up a few great ideas one of which was to make your own gems with mirri card, I used my multi Pinflair punch with the star die and punched three little mirri board gems.  The flowers I made using punches the base flowers are punched from the Tonic flower punch, then I punched some green retro flowers and red icicles.  All these punched elements went to make up my three flowers the icicles are the centre of the flowers which look like stamens, this was a tip I picked up from Stef at C&C.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

It would be great if you could come join the challenge at 

My next card is a Tilda that I have had for a very long time but this is the first time I have inked her up.  I have called her 'Bookworm Tilda'.  I stamped her with Onyx Black Versafine ink then cut her out and coloured with Copics.  The papers are Kim&Co and I have used several layer including the circle scalloped Nesties.  I have used TH Distress inks to distress the papers and stamped sentiment.  The flower I made myself using, once again the circle scalloped Nesties.  I used a tip that was shown by Dawn Bibby on C&C which was to cut each of the scallops, I then distressed the edges and used a bone folder to curve them outwards, the papers I used for all the scallops I think is SU. I finished off by adding a pink petal and sparkle button also a couple of butterflies and pink liquid pearls.
I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:
I have used Glossy Accents for Tilda's glasses. 

Well that is it from me for today but I hope you have enjoyed your visit and like what you have seen, please don't forget to come join us at
Pixie Dust Studios this week.
Hugs
