In The Pink!

Oh my goodness!!!  The weeks are just flying by and we are nearly at the end of June which of course means that this coming weekend is The Craft Barn's Extravaganza!!!  I have been busy beavering away in preparation for this which is why I've been so quiet!!  I've managed to get a few sample cards done but still have some more to do.  I just LOVE this event as there is always such a lovely buzz around the place.  For those of you who are able to make it, please do come and say 'hello' - I shall be in the Day Centre which is the little room, around the back of the Community Centre.  I'll be demonstrating with some of the Gorjuss Girl stamps and Copic markers.

Talking of Gorjuss Girl stamps, today I have a Gorjuss Girl card to share with you featuring Daisy.

I am soooooooooo in love with my Grand Calibur at the moment!!  It cuts all the Memory Box dies so cleanly without the need for any shims whatsoever. (I can't stop using it or buying Memory Box dies - LOL!!!)  Talking of dies as I used quite a few on this card I'd like to enter this into the current Allsorts challenge which is Any Die Will Do.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see some of you soon!!

Delightful Daisy

Helloooooooooooooo!!  Did you all have a good Jubliee Weekend?

First of all I must say thank you to all of you who came and stopped by my table last weekend - it was soooooooooooo lovely to see you all :)  Thankfully I had managed to finish all my cards and here is one of them -

For this card I used the Gorjuss Girl clear stamp set called Daisy which was coloured using Copics. The background paper is Magnolia (Pink Magic Bubbles) which I stamped and embossed using a white pigment inkpad and white detail  embossing powder using different stamps from the Hobby Art Just For You clear stamp set. 

Here's a closer look at Daisy for you.

The markers I used are as follows -

Skin E000, E00 E02, R20                                         
Hair C1, C7, C9
Flowers – Y21, YG23
Clothes – BG90, BG93, BG96, C1, C7, C9, Y21, W1, W3

On Wednesday I popped out to The Craft Barn to pick up my products to use for their Extravaganza Weekend and you'll never guess what stamps I am using .............................................................................................................  GORJUSS GIRLS!!!!!  LOL!!!  They are different images to what I was using at The Glitter Pot though :)  

It looks as if there will be lots of Gorjuss Girl cards appearing here for a little while ;)
