Sweet as Candy!!

Hello Friends & Happy Monday to ya!  I'm off today to see my friend Marti---we're cooking up some secret projects (shhh...can't tell), hee hee!  We had a good weekend, saw family, played "Quelf" and ate at Bertucci's (my fave)!  I also got some work done which is always a good thing---now if we could just get rid of all this white snow, blech!  I'm so sick of looking outside and seeing only white ya know?  I cannot wait until it's green outside and I can open my windows wide and enjoy the fresh, WARM air!  It couldn't come soon enough I tell ya :o)

NewsBitz:

Sweet as Candy

For my card today I've used "Christmas Party Tilda" from Magnolia-licious HERE (I seem to have a knack for using stamps that Diana is out of stock of, LOL) and yes this is a Xmas stamp, hee hee---but I've changed her up just a bit!  Her pocket and hand hold candy canes but I made them lollipops :o) SUZANNE TIP:  How you ask?  I took two of my hole punches and punched 2 white circles (1 super small & 1 small), colored them with copics and them topped them off with a drop of diamond glaze and now she's ready for a birthday party!  Behind Tilda I used a fun CB embossing folder to emboss the white cs and then inked the edges in pink.

The papers I used are from Best Creation--aren't they so cheery and spring-like, I love 'em!  The lil round sentiment is from an old SU set I have and love and then I just layered more Primas together for my flowers embellies.  SUZANNE TIP: I buy Prima Sprites in Green and then cut the the petals apart to make leaves for my flowers!  The swirls are made with this punch HERE.

Here's a closer look at those candy-canes TURNED into Lolli-pops!  There is also diamond glaze on her white patent shoes and lots of stickles on her pocket and present.  On the ribbon around the present, the heart in her pocket and on top of the Prima roses I used the NEW Smooch Illuminate--it looks sparkly white but is very sheer so you can use it on top of anything for a soft sparkle. (COPIC COLORS used:  R85,R83,R81,YG25,YG00,YG0000,C2,C1/Hair: E35,E31,YR21,YR20)  I think she turned out super cute--whaddya think?!!  As always you can find a ton of these cutie-pie stamps HERE at Magnolia-licious!

See ya back here tomorrow!!

  8. This card is a creative sensation. Your copics coloring is the best I've seen. And the transformation from XMas to birthday is brilliant! Bravo! I can't wait to get to Virginia to take my private class. Hopefully you can also transfer some of your creativity to my brain.

  13. Great card. Love all your ideas for changing up. As for the snow I am truly sorry for your frustration. My snowdrops are up in the back yard and my daffs in the front yard are ready to open up here on Vancouver Island. Today it is very foggy but I am hoping it will go away and have some more sunshine today. Looks like rain for the next 4 days though.

  29. Such a lovely card Suzanne. Terrific idea with the lolipop. I love the colours you have used.
    Thank you so much for the tutorials. I am just learning to use the distress inks and have found your lessons very good even though they are for copics. Your latest Tutorial looks so amazing. I love how you coloured it. I have just coloured this exact Tilda and now see where I have gone wrong in my shading.
    Hugs Marion

  31. Suzanne: Your videos are what prompted me to get into Copics last November. And now you are to blame, er, thank! ;) for today's order of Tilda stamps. I have been adoring them for so long, and I finally ordered five of them! Yay! I can hardly wait to get them to try my hand too. Thank you so much for all the instruction and inspiration. Your work is really amazing!

  34. Another beautiful card. Love the little touches for accents. I also loved your video - did it get cut off a bit? Did you use any W1 or W3 on her hair? Your videos are great and love this look.

  35. Like I have said sooo many times, the Tilda/Edwin stamps are so versatile...sometimes you just have to know how to make it happen...here enters Suzanne! This card is screaming SPRING! While the snow is gone here(for now)...it's still too darn cold for my fingers and toes!
