Tea Cup Girl, Birthdays Are the Best


Today’s card is simple yet elegant!  It features the beautiful Tilly the Teacup Girl from Stamping Bella!  She is done up using the watercolor with markers technique. 

I love the vibrancy that this technique offers, and it is so simple and easy to do!  All it takes is a little practice, and the watercolor markers of your choice. 

The background papers were hand made, using various techniques with Ranger Distress Inks, and the overall feel conveyed is simple and clean. 

All of these fantastic techniques are featured in the Paper Crafter’s Library.  In no time at all, you can be coloring with gorgeous results, from our easy to follow technique video’s.  Not a member of Paper Crafter’s Library?  Read on for details on how you can win a free 2-week membership.

  1. I love seeing all the creative things you ladies are doing with other products that I’m not familiar with…great job.

  2. I just have to say thank you to you both for the wonderful tutorials. I am trying to expand myself and learn new techniques. Watercolouring is the one I am practising at the moment. Not happy with myself yet, but you keep inspiring me. Thank you again.

  3. Boy I am getting lost trying to keep up with you gals. Really like the effects with the watercolors.

    I will have to mark this spot to keep updated.

    Thanks for the great ideas.

  4. Wow! This doesn’t look like a homemade card at all. It looks so like a card you would buy at a card store. The colours are great!

  5. This is wonderful. I hadn’t seen this adorable Stamping Bella image yet, so it’s an extra special one for me! The colors are terrific. I knew how to do this background technique but haven’t used it in forever eventhough I love the look. Thanks for posting such an adorable reminder to me.

  6. Sophia, you are such a great teacher in your videos. You have taught me how to sponge better and color. Love your work – and Andreas. Card is beautiful! TFS.

  7. Great card! Your coloring is always fabulous. I’ve watched your tutorials and still can’t even come close.

  8. I love the bling in the hair of this teacup girl. The color techniques you used is amazing.

  9. Who Is This Steve Iser Guy?

    Lately there’s been a lot of talk about this relatively unknown 24 year-old online millionaire named Steve Iser who’s exposing his software program Commission Crusher, to the world for a very limited time…

    So just who is Steve and what should you know about him?

    Simply put, Steve is unlike any other marketer online. With nearly 5 years of marketing online, Steve has gone from College dropout at 20 to millionaire status in less than 3 years.

    He’s run the full gamut from promoting affiliate programs, creating info products, software training, sold websites, spoken at marketing conferences, created his own CPA offers and in the process of his career has already helped thousands of people create successful businesses online.

    You name it – he’s probably done it. This young turk believes in “paying it forward”. In other wards, his goal with Commission Crusher is to help his 500 new students utilize his new software to create a new group of rich.

    His new software program, Commission Crusher, utilizes a simple method that allows you to tap into any market or niche online and find out WHO exactly has the traffic – so you can tap into it and get a piece of the pie for youself.

    Needless to say, he’s unlike most of these other “gurus” out there. He does things differently. And he takes a personal interest in helping his customers succeed.

  10. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
