Welcome Marmalade ...

Whilst I do love a lot of homemade marmalade on my multi-seed toast and have this "meal" at any time of the day, I'm actually not referring to food ...!

Marmalade is a wonderful new collection of character stamps from Tonic Studios and is made up of versatile characters and FIVE different accessory sets. I have had great fun playing with the collection and will share some of my projects through out the day/ today. Hels Sheridan is on Create & Craft TV sharing all the DT projects and making some wonderful demos too. Well before I share my project, let me introduce to ...

Minnie & Marmalade

Henri & Heffi

Here is my first project using Marmalade ...

I have used the Liberty Shutter Dies to create my gate fold card blank in both white and green. I have used the bunting stamp and create a background, stamping in alternative blue and green ink. Marmalade is mounted on to his own separate panel ... to take centre stage (as it were) ...

Marmalade - 425 & 427 (Marina Blues collection)
Present - 391 & 383 (Fragrant Oranges). Bow paper pieced.
Hat - 417 (Woodland Greens) & 391 (Fragrant Oranges)
Balloon - 391 & 393 (Fragrant Oranges)
Cake - 463 & 465 (Natural Browns) and 377 & 381 (Rich Reds)
Bunting - 417 (Woodland Greens) & 391 (Fragrant Oranges)
Rosette - 413, 415 & 417 (Woodland Greens)

I have coloured him with my Nuvo pens (colours listed under image) and added quite a few of the accessory stamps (plus matching dies).

I also decorated the inside of my card using the bunting and present stamps. Sorry forgot to take a photograph of the inside.

Phew ... think that's everything! Right off to walk the dog and promise to share more of the "Marmalade World's" collection throughout the day.

Have a great Saturday,
