The Sugar Nellie DT

Heavenly Angel

Good morning, Fi here!

Now here we have another one of the new toppers from Sugar Nellie....gorgeous isn't it??  They come with several on the sheet...they are sooooo adorable and will available soon.

You can also get this cutie in rubber and she's called Heavenly Angel.

The papers were in my stash, I die cut the topper and layered it onto the snowflake doily.  I cut out some snowflakes and covered them in glitter.  I added pearls to the centres of the snowflakes.

Remember to check out our challenge over on the Sugar Bowl.

Pop back for more sugar inspiration tomorrow.


Floral Ladies ----

--- Good morning sugar fans ---
Janine here today to share my card with you. 
For my card this week I really wanted to use a digi stamp from our new collections called 'Floral Ladies'. These are so fabulous to colour, and on my card I decided not to over embellish it because I wanted to concentrate on colouring her in.  I used Copic markers and a few pencils to add a little extra dimension.  The collection of Floral Ladies are all equally as beautiful, and you'll definitely find something you like and will enjoy using them - you can find them all at Funkykits here

After colouring my topper I added a touch of glitter to the flowers and some gold pen to her fan, and then I matted and layered it onto coloured card stock and then onto my A5 white card base. To finish off I added a few gems.

For more details of everything I used please check out my blog here.
Thanks for dropping by, and don't forget to call by tomorrow to see more cards from
my fab teamies.

Welcome our guest Lorraine

Hi, my name is Lorraine Collett and I live in the East of England.
I am a 49 year old mother of two grown up daughters and have a very supportive husband who understands my crafty obsession.
I have been creating cards for friends and family for about eight years now but have only been colouring my own images since starting my blog about a year ago.
I discovered lots of challenge blogs out there and started buying digital images to colour for my card entries to these challenges. One of the first companies I bought from was Sugar Nellie,
their images are so cute and sweet and they really appealed to me.
I was so excited to be asked to do a GDT spot here at Sugar Nellie after entering their recent competition and have really enjoyed working with the images that I was given to play with.

I started with this beautiful Geisha image and decided to move away from the traditional Oriental colours of red, black and gold and use this, more floral inspired combination instead.

‘Geisha’ image – Funky Kits Shop
Digital papers
Papermania Oriental Stamps
Beads and findings from stash
I matted the image on several layers of coloured card to match the matting on the background and tie it all together.
The Oriental symbols are from a Papermania stamp set that I have stamped and embossed with black embossing powder and made a type of scroll by rolling
up the two ends and placing a hanging bead arrangement from it to match the decoration in the Geisha’s hair.
My second project...

...is an altered box.
I was given the image ‘Love Letters’ to play with and thought about creating a keepsake box to hold precious memories and letters, maybe from a loved one.

My Minds Eye papers ‘Adventure’
Recollections Dimensional letters
White Satin Ribbon
Gemstone brad
Spellbinders die – Floral Ovals
Sue Wilson die – Faux Quilled Leaves
La La Land Crafts die – Filigree Corner
Wooden ‘Memories’ buckle
Flowers – Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima
This image was so much fun to colour.
I cut it out and mounted it in the Spellbinders Floral frame and inked and glittered around the edges.
All the design papers were also inked on the edges and layered up to make panels for covering the box.
I hope you enjoyed reading my post as much as I enjoyed creating with these lovely images and I would like to thank Karen and the Design Team for inviting me to join them in this guest spot.
Thank you for welcoming me here today,


Wish Upon A Star...

Hi All

Christine here with you today... and I'm back amongst my favourite creatures... the fairies!

Today I've used 'Wish Upon a Star' - she has to be one of my favourite fairy images - as I've used her quite often!  This time I wanted to use pink (unusual for me - NOT!) - but I wanted to keep the pink very delicate... so brought out the colour by shading around the image, rather than colouring the image strongly itself.  

She's coloured with Copics...  and I've used a Marianne Craftables Die and a Noor Design border die.  Pop over to my blog HERE for more details.

'Wish upon a Star' is available as a digi image from Funky Kits by clicking on the link below which will take you straight there....

Thanks for looking today - do call by tomorrow to see more gorgeous inspiration... 

Hope you have a lovely day..

Christine xx
