I thought Mimosa would need a place to buy her cupcakes, so I put her in front of a cake shop. I got this stamp from Squigglefly. It is actually a set of 6 different shops (digital). I printed it once on my neenah cardstock and once on a piece of Basic Grey pattern paper. The paper I used is from the Two Scoops pack. I cut the awnings from the pattern paper and pieced it into the stamp. The colors I used are R20 and R22, G02 and G00 and Y02. For the embossing I used my cuttlebug and a plaid folder to match the plaid in the paper. I then added my favorite new embellishment- Prima mini roses. The sentiment was stamped with just rite and then cut out with a nestabilitie.

card I was unfamiliar with until recently. You start with 2 pieces of 6 x 6 cardstock then layer them with decorative paper. Then you take your nestabilitie or other die cut and cut a shape out of one of the pieces of covered cardstock. I used Labels 4 for this card. Now you can color your image I chose the adorable new Jolly Roger Tilda. She's so cute she can't be kept in stock and is now on pre-order. I colored her with my copic markers. The colors I used on her clothes were RV 14, RV 13, BG 10 and BG 13. After I had Tilda all colored, I poked a small hole in her head and a small hole right above the cut out shape and put jump rings in each hole. The I took a small piece of floss and tied the jump ring on Tilda to the jump ring on the card letting her dangle a little bit. Now to assemble the card you need another piece of 4 x 6 cardstock that you score and 1, 2, and 3 inches then accordion fold. Attach the one end to the front piece of your decorative cardstock and the other to the back piece. Then you attach at the top however you prefer, I used pearl brads to hold mine together. Then I finished decorating my card front with lace, tulle, and a paper rose. I chalked it with black chalk to grunge it up a bit. Then I took 2 Making Memories deco pins and stuck them through to mimic the crossbones on the paper. I also randomly added some small rhinestones for excitement.

markers. Her dress is a combination of R20, R22, and R24. The frog is YG03 and YG06. Her hair is YR23, Y21, and Y17 and her skin is E000, E02, YR000 and R20. To give her some more sparkle I painted her wings with Shimmerz pixie dust and added a little of my atyou spicas to the flowers in her hair and on the ground. I also added some roses (prima and magnolia) and blinged them up with some diamond stickles their branches (Martha Stewart punch) were cut out of green shimmer paper.

except her skin. I put a shamrock on her wand and added a shamrock hat from Designers Calendar. The card base is cut from A Child's Year (this cartridge is full of fun card bases for all occasions) and I used the Bazzil swiss dots cardstock for that and put some more of the green shimmer paper behind the shamrock cut outs. I gave the princess some wiggly eyes, with eyelashes of course, and stamped a nose and mouth from my peach keen face sets. We would love to see your St. Patty's Day creations, so head on over to Just Buggin and show us what you come up with.
combinations. I decided to use Noble Tilda for this card. I have colored her with my copic markers and sat her on the Tea Cup from the A Little Yummy for Your Tummy collection. I paper pieced some of the Basic Grey background paper on the tea cup. The paper is Porcelain from Basic Grey. The sentiment comes from the Scent with Love stamp set How Ya Bean. To finish it all off, I added a couple of Petaloo flowers and a dab of the delicously yummy card scent chai tea which smells as good as the ones from Starbucks!
We would love for you to play along with challenge for the chance to win an issue of the Magnolia Ink magazine. It is full of wonderful pictures and ideas.

Cindy at Stamping Scrapping.com just received a 76 pound order of Magnolia stamps today. I guess they never got my email changing the ship to address to my house LOL. Anyway, these new stamps are super cute!!!! There are pirate stamps, wedding stamps, fairytale princesses, magic wizards, and more. I have never seen so many cute ones at one time!!!! Get them while you can. They will ship next day!!!!
flowers from the craft store pulled off their stems, put back together with a brad, and sprayed with green glimmer mist. I then punched some leaves out of the brown craft paper and the dark green paper from the Origins pack. Next I added the sentiment miss you a latte and cut it out with my labels 2 nestie. The sentiment is from the stamp set Java Happy Day. To finish the card off, I added some ribbon and a bow. Now, you may be saying to yourself, "wow that bow looks great!". That is because I have found my favorite new product in a long long time, the Bow Easy. This little guy is AWESOME. It enables you to tie perfect bows every time. You can tie several different sizes and you can add as many loops as you would like . I made a 2 loop bow for this card. Now the best part- it is only $4.99!!!!! Finally, I think I may start to make a dent in the ridiculous amount of ribbon I have.
Please join us in the Bildmalarna challenge over on the Bildmalarna Blog and you could win the adorable new Easter Bunny stamp!!! It's a cute one!!!
