Lonely Sisi

It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week it’s….

Pink & Girly.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Ppinkydolls.

I’d never actually heard of Ppinkydolls until it was announced as our sponsor for this challenge but I must say the images are gorgeous and hope I’ve done this one justice.


I decided to make a Criss Cross card today. I haven’t made one of these in ages even though they are quite easy to make. I’m sure I’ll be making more of them from now on. I’ve used some pretty ‘pink & girly’ papers from Kaisercraft for my card today. This print is called ‘Charismatic and is from the ‘Key To My Heart’ Collection.

I have stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E21, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E55, E53, E51; Eyes - BG02, BG01; Dress - R85, R83, R81.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


My image was cut out and layered using the Large Classic & Scallop Oval Nestabilities from Spellbinders. This has then been layered onto the Large Petra Oval (LR0240) from Marianne Design. I’ve added some Shabby Pink Frantage around the image and a little bouquet of flowers which are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I’ve edged my ‘criss cross’ panels with the Scalloped Stitch Lace die from Doohickey, added a little lace under my image and a Monarch Butterfly punch from Martha Stewart to the front panel.

Here’s what the inside looks like.


I’ve used 2 of the smaller dies from LR0240 by Marianne Design on the inside panel. One for the sentiment and another for the pull tab at the top. I’ve also added a Bride Bow from Doohickey to the pull tab and another Monarch Butterfly Punch. The corners have some pearls added, along with the centre of the butterfly and lastly I added a larger pearl to the centre of the bow.
