MWAH!

Good morning and happy Friday to you all! I was having a little play last night with one of my first Magnolia stamps, she is such a sweetie.

I never seem to use my RV markers very much so this was something new for me and I tried to colour Tilda so she looked almost like the was watercoloured. Whether or not I got it right or not, I don't know, but I like how she turned out anyway, lol.

Here is a little close up of Tilda. The image was cut and embossed using Nestabilities Labels 4 and the edges sponged with distress ink "Antique Linen".

And a side view:

I have to wonder if my Cuttlebug is wearing out though? I'm having some trouble with it not cutting right though the cardstock unless I pad the stack out with a couple of sheets of paper. I haven't heard of them doing this before? Has anyone else had any issues with theirs?


Ingredients for this card are:

Copic colours: RV 000, 10, 91, 93, 95, E0000, 000, 00, 13, 21, 41, 43, 44, 47, 49, G 0000, 40
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda with Hearts (Love 2009)
Papers: Kaisercraft Dancing Jewel "Quartz", SU! Kraft, Purple c/s is unknown, sorry.
Embellishments: Lace, Stickles Diamond, Kaisercraft Pearls, Ribbon, Flowers (Wild Orchard Crafts)
Other: Magnolia Doo Hickeys cutting dies - Swedish Lace and Dragonflies (available at Tickled Pink Stamps), Cuttlebug Die Concentric Hearts, Nestabilities Labels 4, Cuttlebug, Sewing machine, white gel pen.

Challenges:
Charisma Cardz - Try something new (Copic colouring to look watercoloured technique)

  12. Beautiful card Kylie! I love your colouring and all the layers, she's adorable!
    Not suer about your CB... can the rollers wear out? Perhaps some new plates might do the trick.... good luck, love all your gorgeous dies! ♥

  35. What a pretty card. Your coloring is beautiful. BTW, when I use nesties in my Cuttlebug, I sometimes do have to add cardstock shims for cutting. I always need them for embossing. I think it may have something to do with the thickness of your paper. Regardless, beautiful!

  39. This is SO gorgeous! Love your coloring! Especially love the way you did Tilda's hair!!!

    I have found when the B plate gets a curve in it from a lot of use, it won't cut properly. If I am being frugal, I just use paper "pads" to get it to cut all the way through. Usually you can replace the worn out B plate and it should work good until that one, too, begins to warp!

  42. Kylie this is stunning! Your coloring is fantastic! As far as the CB, your cutting plates may need replacing or flipped over. Mine tend to warp. I just flip them over and all is good again.
