Challenge #tie it up with ribbon 

For this project I used the last of the Caron Vinson stamp plate stamps.  Again I coloured with copics and pencils.

The backing papers were from my paper stash.

I embellished with ribbon, bow, flowers and a couple of gems.

For this project I used the 3rd image from the Caron Vinson stamp plate.  I coloured the image with copics, prima/polychromos pencils, glitter pen and glaze pen for the border.

The backing paper were once again left over scraps from previous projects.

I used a Spellbinder die to cut the corner embellishment and a Magnolia doily circle die.  The finishing touches were some flowers and pearl embellishments.

Thanks for looking, best wishes,


For this project I used another of the Caron Vinson stamps from her 2nd stamp plate and coloured with copics and prisma/polychromos pencils.  I used a glitter pen for the eye mask, jewellery and wings.

The backing papers were from my card stash.

I used a Magnolia die for the flourish and a Marianne die for the corner embellishment.  To complete this card I added flowers, pin, beads and gems.

Hope you like, best wishes

For this project I used one of the stamps from the 2nd stamp plate from Caron Vinson and coloured with copics, prisma and polychromos pencils, sukura glitter pen and a glaze pen for the border around the image.

The backing papers were some scraps I found in my paper stash plus some gold mirri cardstock.

I used a border punch for the decorative border and also used the off-cut as an edge border.

I used a punch to cut the leaf embellishments and  Marianne dies for the flowers.  I added a couple of gem embellishments to complete this project.

I also added stickles to the fairy's dress and wings.

Hope you like as I love these stamps and the artist Caron Vinson is amongst my favourites.

Best wishes,
