Happy Birthday Cup Cakes

I am so honoured to be chosen as one of the Sugar and Spice design team. These ladies I have joined are just oozing with talent and a great team to work with.

Happy Birthday Cup Cakes is a birthday card that I have made three times now and each time has inspired the recipient to by something for the kitchen with cup cakes on it. I hope it inspires you.

Items used

Yellow Pink and white card stock
Light Pink, Dark Pink and Yellow VERSA pigment ink pads
Black STAZON ink pad
SUGAR AND SPICE Happy Happy Birthday and Fancy Flourishes Clear Stamps
White 5” x 5” Birthday Card
Fine Black permanent ink pen.
Soft paint brush
Glamour Dust
Glue Pen
Double sided tape
Foam Pads
Quickie Glue Pen
6” ruler

STAZON ink and a permanent ink pen are used as for this card as it is coloured with a wash of water colours and you don’t want the black ink to run.

Using the Sugar and Spice Happy Happy Birthday stamps, and the black STAZON ink, I stamped out 3 cupcakes onto white card stock. I water coloured the cupcakes with a light was of pigment ink and water, then dotted the fondant with small dark pink dots and a sprinkle of Glamour Dust.

For the Cake Plate; on white card stock and using a fine permanent marker, I drew a 4" horizontal black line. Using a straight border stamp from the Sugar and Spice Fancy Flourishes set, I centred it under the penned line. I added scrolls at the end of the 4” line to give a fancy finish. I then drew 1” vertical line from the centre of the plate. Using one of the corner stamps I rotated it so that the point was centred to the vertical line to form a base of the cake stand, then washed the whole plate stand with a very weak pink wash.

I cut out a square of yellow and pink card stock and tore around the edges and edged each piece with glamour dust. I lightly curl the edges of the two pieces of card. I stuck the pink to the yellow then both to the birthday card. I adhere the cake stand flat to the card with glue pen then the three cup cakes using foam pads. I stamped Birthday midway on the stem of the cake stand and glaze over the words with glue pen and glamour dust.

But Ladies, please remember, when you go to work the next day that your trousers will be covered in glamour dust and you will shine in the lights all day.

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx


When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
