Birthday Surprise!

by Myrna Irwin

First of all Linda this is your birthday card so don’t look unless you can’t wait until Friday. I did a few new things that I’ve never done before and discovered I really like the effect and will definitely do it again. I cut a Nestie with a portion of the image left outside of the Nestie. LOVE the look it gives you. I followed this tutorial by Rachel Jakes. Also for the first time I perfectly matched my copics to my paper! WOW!

Hopefully you can see how I cut out the spoon and then did my Nestie. I’m glad I tried it.

I’ve been cleaning in my scrapbook room and found these tag with pocket cards. I decided it was time to use one.

I came up with the saying so it is computer generated.

Onto the stats for my card.

  • Stamps:  Magnolia-slice of cake, kitchen Tilda-A Little Yummy For Your Tummy Collection ’09
  • Savvy Stamps-birthday wishes
  • Paper:  MM-tag with pocket
  • Stampin’ Up!-6 x 6 pattern paper package
  • Nestie:  long classic rectangle, lg
  • Copics:
  • Flesh:  Same as usual
  • Hair:  E41 E37 E49
  • Head scarf, apron, bow, socks:  R000 R30 R32 R35 R37 R39
  • Dress, pocket:  BG93 Bg96 BG99
  • Spoon, shoes:  E31 E33 E25 E37
  • I put little pearls on her shoes. No reason she can’t have fancy shoes on to cook.
  • Shadow:  C1 C3

Thanks for looking!

  13. OH! I love this “pocket” card. It’s adorable. Your coloring of Tilda is so nice. Beautifully done.

  14. Hi
    I’m from the UK and I’ve just found your blog. I love it. Your colouring is brilliant and I love the fact that you give a list of all the copic colours you have used. This helps so much in seeing the way the colours work together and is invaluable to people like me who are building up there Copic collections slowly and have to choose their colours very carefully.

  15. Cute & sweet card!
