Sweet Sassy Suzi

Hi Everyone

As promised I have another card for you today made using one of my new The Greeting Farm stamps, I have fallen in love with this make of stamps and I never thought any collection would be better that the Tilda’s from Magnolia but I think I love these even more than Tilda!!! I think part of it is that when I’m colouring I love doing faces and hair so as the TGF stamps have the larger heads it lets me play more than the Magnolias do, although I do still love Tilda too!!

For today’s card I chose to use one of the girls from The Wild Sprout collection, her name is Sassy Suzi and I managed to get her from Dies to Die for , if you like TGF stamps (or other brands!!) and you are looking for a UK website then please give this site a go!! Not only are their prices fab but their service is brill, I have placed two orders with them and they both arrived next day!! Plus because my postage was less than I paid Tracy refunded some of it!! What more can you ask for!!! Tracy is so lovely and has even offered to add my blog address to her blog!! (you can get to her blog if you click on her name above)

Anyway on to the card!!


As I mentioned above for this card I used Sassy Suzi from the Wild Sprout collection and I coloured her with my Copic Ciao markers. The backing papers for this card are from the Floral stack by Diecuts with a View and the card used behind the paper was cut with a scallop edge using Fiskars Cloud scissors (this card is also DCWV) The base card is from Do-crafts and to finish off the card I added some ribbon from my stash and some faux pearls also from my stash.


Here is a closer look at Sassy Suzi!! Isn’t she adorable!!

To colour her I used the following copic ciao markers

Skin – E50, E00, E21, E11, R20 (B05 for the eyes)

Hair – Y15, Y17, YR16, E35

Clothes etc – R85, R59, YG63, YG67, G99, R00, R02, R05

The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Premium Ultra Smooth White Cardstock from Sir Stampalot and Sassy Suzi was bought from Dies to Die For

I would really love to know what you think of this card!! Also if you have any requests for cards, projects or tutorials then please feel free to either leave me a comment or email me at anytime!!

I hope to be back tomorrow with something else for you but not sure what yet!! Thanks as always for stopping by, it truly means alot to me!!
