Copics Colour Challenge – #8


as Toodles and Binks are now going to be sponsoring the challenge on a regular basis, and this week was our first week, I just had to take part, as for the last two weeks I’ve got as far as actually colouring in something, and then not having time to come through!

I decided I would use Chickadee (RRP-010), and make a small Easter Card for the Inlaws.

I used my large shaped label nestie as the basis for the card (but just staying short of the top, so you end up with a folded card) and then cut out the same shape again in pattern paper and lined it up just at the bottom.  I will try and do a quick tutorial of that in the week if I can.

Supplies List

My I have to say so many of you are loving both Chickadee and Amelie Bunnykins.

Easter Wishes Tag



Just a quick tag, courtesy of Marks & Spencer – I raced in yesterday to grab a few bits and pieces (as Tooldes is staying with her Grandpartents for a week, and I am away on non T&B business).

M&S have now started to use a lot thick cardboard tags, and thread instead of yucky plastic ones, and the tage was just too nice and thick to throw away, so I altered it to hang on Toodles Easter present for next week.


A quick how to:

  • Cut two small pieces of Amy Butler pattern paper just large enough to cover the pre-printed product details on both of the tags, but leaving some of the lovely pre-printed scroll work on the top and edges of the back.  Run the Gingerbread ink pad around the edges and adhere.
  • Layer up the brown and yellow silk flowers, hold together with a brad, and adhere at bottom righthand side at the front.
  • Tie a piece of pale green silk ribbon around the tag, and secure in a knot at the front.
  • Cut of the middle tag from the nested tag dies in white cardstock.
  • Stamp the “Easter Wishes” from the Chickadee stamp in Old Olive Ink, edge the tag with Pretty in Pink Ink
  • Cover the tag with versamark ink, and sprinkle on some SU Heat’n’stick powder, heat with heat gun until it melts, then sprinkle on some of the SU Crystal Glitter, shake off the excess and heat again to set.
  • Adhere the tag with 3-d foam pads just above the flower at an angle (adding a small gold brad).
  • Tie the pink fringed ribbon through the tag hole, but leave the lovely silk thread that was tied to the garment in place.

I get all my SU bits and bobs from my lovely friend Caz.
