Forever Friends Christmas

I decided to get a head start on my Christmas cards with the new Forever Friends stamps that arrived this week...who knows maybe I'll actually send them out this year!

This is a really quick card and a great stamp if you're new to colouring with Copics as it has large areas to blend.  The bear itself is super easy to colour and I've used three different browns - E50, E51 & E53 with a little E40 for his nose.

I've used some Kaiser paper that I had left from last year and mounted the present with foam to make it pop out a little and added some clear Copic Spica to make it bling!  I've also coloured some white Kaiser pearls with my Copics to match.

If you'd like to learn more about colouring with Copics book yourself into Rosemary's Copics 101 class, which is being held on the 19 & 27 October in store this month.  You'll find all the details here.

Until next time 

Tilda's in the house!

Hi everyone
I got a bit excited a couple of weeks ago when Karen told me she had ordered some Magnolia Stamps from Sweden. This gorgeous range of stamps feature Tilda and Edwin and there's so many to choose from! I've been wanting to get some for a while and when they arrived in store I couldn't resist, so now I have a few too many LOL!

As well as the stamps there's also a magazine (which you can grab in store now) with heaps of amazing cards and tutorials.

So here's what I've been up to with my new stamps...

The images are coloured with Copics and in the second card Tilda is sitting on the CC Designs bench stamp. The papers and embellishments can also be found in store.  If you'd like to see more samples we've added some more pics to the gallery on the website, which you view here.

As well as my  new Tilda stamps I may have snapped up some of the new Forever Friends clear Christmas stamps (they were a bargain, how could I resist!) So make sure you check back soon for some Forever Friends creations.

Until next time
