Hello Minnie ... but not the mouse !

Oh my it was a cold walk with dog and think at this rate I'll be trying to squeeze thermals under my clothes! Normally when you're on the move, it's not too great a problem but today there was a distinctive extra nip in the air. Need to also look for a new hat as mine is looking very sad for itself however I'm not sure I suit hats, so shopping for one will be a chore ... !

Today on Create & Craft TV, Tonic Studios launched a new collection called "Marmalade's World". It consists of character stamps, accessory stamps and matching dies. Here is another one of my projects but this time using Minnie ...

I began by cutting out the three circles from a piece of white card (slightly smaller than my card base), with my Celtic Circle layering dies and mounting with 3D foam on to my card base. Next on to Minnie ...

Skin - 473, 475 & 477 (Fair skin tones) & 451 on cheeks (Rosy Pinks)
Dress - 427 & 429 (Marina Blues) with white gel pen dots
Hair - 463, 465 (Natural Browns) & 491 (Stormy Greys)
Heart - 379, 381 (Rich Reds) & 491 (Stormy Greys)

I have stamped Minnie 3 times, coloured with my Nuvo pens and then placed her in to one of the three circle apertures. Each Minnie was then given a different accessory ...

Skin - 473, 475 & 477 (Fair skin tones) & 451 on cheeks (Rosy Pinks)
Dress - 379, 381 (Rich Reds) & 491 (Stormy Greys) with white gel pen dots
Hair - 463, 465 (Natural Browns) & 491 (Stormy Greys)
Crown - 405 (Sunshine Yellows), 391 (Fragrant Oranges) & 506 (Gold metallic)

Skin - 473, 475 & 477 (Fair skin tones) & 451 on cheeks (Rosy Pinks)
Dress - 437, 439 & 441 (Royal Purples)  with white gel pen dots
Hair - 463, 465 (Natural Browns) & 491 (Stormy Greys)
 Balloon - 427 & 429 (Marina Blues)

A relatively quick card to make and believe it or not, it wasn't the colouring that took the longest part ... it was making sure my circle apertures were all level! Have to own up and say, even with pencil lines on the back, took several attempts ...

Thanks for popping over,

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

Underwater Artist Art Journal Page using Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light

I treated myself a long while ago to the fabulous Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light and sadly have to report that it has stayed hidden in a folder since then. Finally, I had some precious "me time" and decided to get the collection and have a play around with a few of the stamps plus collage/paper piece s. It was the sentiment that really "sang to me" 😍 but not like a Sea Siren does ...! A full "how I did it" is below & also a full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.
