Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - WEEK 12 - WHATS NEW?

The latest challenge for Crafty Cardmakers was to use new products or techniques, maybe things that santa brought. 

Well I decided to use a stamp that I was given for Christmas.  Just before Christmas I brought some packs of notebooks to alter, so decided to use one for this project.

Card used in this project: Stampin Up - Tempting Turquoise, Creamy Caramel and the other was some from Paper Mill.

Stamps used: Magnolia - Tilda with Cat and Papermania - Doodles from Clare Curd's Signature Range

Ink used: Memento Tuxido Black

Copic Markers used:
Skin - E00 Skin White, E21 Baby Skin Pink, R20 Blush , E04 Lipstick Natural
Hair - Y11 Pale Yellow, E43 Dull Ivory, E35 Raw Silk, E33 Sand, E57 Light Walnut
Clothes - BG10 Cool Shadow, BG23 Coral Sea, BG34 Horizon Green, B93 Light Crockery Blue , YG03 Yellow Green, YG00 Mimosa Yellow, G99 Olive, Y11 Pale Yellow, Y17 Golden Yellow
Cat - E21 Baby Skin Pink, E35 Raw Silk, E37 Sepia, E47 Dark Brown, E57 Light Walnut, YR16 Apricot, R20 Blush, R02 Flesh

Atyou Spica Pens used : 00 Clear and 08 Turquoise (I also got these for Christmas as well as some more Copic Markers)

Flowers: 2 Large and 2 Slight smaller. I brought mine from the Flora Doodles Daisy Box Blends range
Plus 2 gems for the centres

Other: Notebook, Ribbon and Diamond Glaze or similar

Notebook - I replace the cover with a new one create from Tempting Turquoise SU Card. Added a smaller piece of card at the bottom. Added strips of ribbon and then a flower, created from two flowers stuck together with a blue pearl in the centre. Tilda was coloured in with Copic's and then I added highlights with Spica Pens. I used Glaze on her shoes and the Cat nose. I added faux stitching using black pen.

Card - Tilda is decoupaged and coloured as for the note book. I cut a card blank from Tempting Turquoise. I cut a piece of Creamy Caramel card and added strips of the ribbon and then stick it to the card blank. I cut a circle from Tempting Turquoise using a Nestability Die and then a scalloped one from the paper mill card. Then I put this on the the card. I stuck Tilda to the circle. I again added faux stitching to the card edge and the around the middle circle.

 For the inside I cut two squares from the paper mill card and then stamped flowers from the doodle stamp set.  I added spica 08 Turquoise to them.  I added faux stitching around the edge. These I then stuck inside the card blank.
