Sue has used the La La Land Stamp "Sugar n Spice Marci".

Tutorial:
Stamp Marci onto Xpress-it Blending cardstock using the Tuxedo black ink, colour using the Copic markers listed.  In the card shown, I have added clear Spica Glitter Pen to Marci’s headband, the heart on the cup cake and dotted onto the icing.
From the Echo Park Springtime paper pack, cut the yellow and white striped paper 130mm x 130mm, the dotted paper 130mm x 55mm.
Cut a thin strip of Mulberry cardstock  (approx 130mm x 5mm), attach to the dotted paper , then attach both of these to the striped paper with double sided tape.  Attach a ribbon, securing at the back with double sided tape, then attach all of this to a 130mm x 130mm card base.
Cut a label using the Label one set  (I have used the 5th largest)  from the Mulberry cardstock and from the white cardstock cut a label from the labels nineteen (I have used the 4th largest), layer the labels and Marci onto the card as pictured.
Stamp your sentiment onto Xpress it Blending cardstock using the Tuxedo black ink, draw over the writing lightly using RV00 copic marker.  Add to the card and decorate with Rhinestones coloured with R85 copic marker.
Lastly finish off with a bow & you are done.
