Sugar Nellie Duda Daze Bloghop

Yeah! It's finally here, the super blog hop from Sugar Nellie! I was one of the lucky sugar addicts to receive one of the new Diane Duda stamps to play with.
You're supposed to be coming from Rosaliens blog. If not, I advise you to start at the Sugar Nellie blog, so you won't miss out on any of the great cards and stamps!

The stamp I received is called Shaken, not kissed...and I think it's a real fun one! I made two cards with it, and this is number one!

The description for this card I found here at the Stamparctic blog. Check the post out, 'cause there are two other cute cards in the same tutorial. It was really easy to make! The papers I used are from We R Memory Keepers and are called Tiffanys. Really nice funky colored papers! I colored the image with coordinating Copic Colors. The border is done with the Fiskars Apron Lace punch. I notice myself using it all the time, love it!

The little crowns are Heidi Swapp chipboard, which I gave a purple color with an cats eye violet inkpad. Love how that turned out, tried it for the first time...but the color is really good and it was done in no time. The happy birthday stamp on the front I bought at an event, don't know the brand. Ribbon is from a local store here in the Netherlands (Xenos).

Onto card number two....Every princess ought to have a castle, so I went up on the internet...googled for a castle coloring page and found the one below!

After that all I had to do was resize it (just used microsoft word), print it out and colour it in. Again I used my copic markers. I double matted the image on Bazzill cardstock, stamped the Diane Duda stamp, colored that one too...and put the card together. The background is from Basic Grey, from the Sultry range. The ribbon was a leftover from my Christmas decoration.
I left the inside blank, so there would be lots of room to write a message.

I hope you enjoyed my two cards. Lets hop on to the next blog, lots more to see!
Please hop on to Angeljakki, who I am sure will have made a fabulous card (or maybe even more!) with another great Duda Daze stamp!

Guest DT Call Roses on Paper

A while ago I joined a challenge on the Roses on Paper blog. I did with this card:

Today I stumbled upon that blog again and read the most amazing news: Elizabeth Bell will start designing for this company too! I love the stamps she made for Whiff of Joy and Sugar Nellie and without a doubt these will be adorable again!
At the blog they are offering a position for a guest DT spot and I'd like to enter with above card!
