A Sweet Valentine and a Pretty Pink Pixie

There is another challenge for us at Sugar Bowl Challenge this week and this one is a recipe,

3 papers and 3 embellishments

I really loved doing this one although only using 3 embellies took me out of my comfort zone. Remember you can use any Sugar Nellie Stamps for this one. Don't forget to read the rules for joining in this challenge carefully.

I have used a Sugar Nellie Leanne Ellis Stamp for this Valentine card, these stamps are so different and I think quite classy and modern. She has been coloured with Distress Inks and matted onto Brown and Pink card. The beige papers are from the new Pink Petticoat "Just an Old Fashion Girl" CD, and the pink paper is from my scraps. The 3 embellies I have used are Rach's Fabulous Raffia Ribbon, Flat Back Pearls and a mixture of flowers. The hearts were cut with an Original Sizzix die.

A Close up of the image, I have watercoloured around the edges of the square with distress ink very diluted.

I carried the papers through to the inside, and added a verse found on the internet.

Magnolia vs Stampavie - BOWS

Bows are the great Challenge this week on Magnolia vs Stampavie, Donna would like to see Bows of any kind on your creations. There is also a great prize this week a £10 voucher donated by Wendy from Secret Crafter to spend on the Secret Crafter On-line Shop.
There are some fabulous bows to be seen on the cards created by my fellow DT members and if you want to see a real dream of a bow check out
BEVS fabulous Ribbon Blossom on her card. To view the DT Cards and find out more about this weeks Challenge just click Here

I have been quite creative with this one, I first stamped the Flower image then masked the stalk and stamped the mushrooms over the flower, I stamped and cut out Pixie Alva and 3d her onto the flower. All the images have been coloured with copics. I used Nestie Labels to matt the image on to, and the DP are a mixture from my scrap box drawer again, I am really being good using up these scraps. The sunflower charm was bought on e-bay, ribbon is from stash. The corner has been cut with a Cuttlebug die.

I have used more of the papers inside, the Toadstools are another Magnolia stamp and have also been coloured with copics. The sentiment is an SU stamp

Well if you are still here Thanks for looking and I hope you have liked what you have seen. Have a good Week
Jacqui xx

Wonderful cards Jacqui. I love the 'gentle' way you've coloured the Leanne Ellis stamp - beautiful.
These Magnolia images are so cute, (can't wait to use mine) and I love the papers from your bit box (can I come and have a root through it - mine's full of unusable bits)

I loved your Magnolia card as soon as I saw it on the challenge blog sweetie - it's absolutely gorgeous and one of my all time favourite cards. It has such a "happy" feel to it and we could all do with an extra bit of happiness. I love cards that make me smile and this one has me grinning from ear to ear!

The SN one is sooo classy - I'm off to visit PP, those are just my kind of papers. The image is coloured brilliantly too, love the watercoloured edge. FABULOUS!!
