Tilda with spring bundle



Tonight I wanted to make a card just for me. I had ordered this cute Tilda a few weeks ago and finally inked her up. I colored her with my copic markers. The colors were picked to coincide with the Melissa Francis (Ella and Josaphine) paper for the background. After stamping the image I used my Labels 10 nestie to cut it out. For the middle layered panel, I used a Martha Stewart border punch (the arch one). The leaves were also punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers are from Wild Orchid. There is a hint of stickles on the ribbon in her hair and I added Flower Soft to the bunch of flowers. The final addition was a few Kaiser pearls on the corners of each panel. I didn’t have the shade of blue that I wanted, so I just used white pearls and a my B93 marker.

We are off to Panama City Beach in the morning for a work conference. Hopefully the oil hasn’t reached there yet. The family is coming along because we have never visited that part of Florida before. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Celebrating You

 This card was made so I could use another new stamp in my collection. I picked up this Penny Black slapstick Irises last week. I love this style of flower stamp. I pulled out my watercolor crayons, spritzer and I must say, I am happy with my first try. I usually have to try 3-4 times before I am happy with the look.


I used my Swiss Dot CB folder on the pink and light blue panel. The sentiment is by Verve, the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch (it is covering up a small tear when I adjusted the ribbon!), and the pearls are from Basic Grey Opalines. I am happy to say this card fulfills three challenges. The layout is from Mojo Monday 141, the color scheme is from Cuttlebug Challenge and on A Spoonfull of Sugar the theme is celebrating. This might become a card for my Mom (who’s surgery was delayed until next Monday) once she is fully into therapy. I don’t want you to get the wrong idea….she is having a full knee replacement. Didn’t want you to think she was going to detox (wink). The week is half over so we are counting down to the weekend and our trip to Panama City Beach. Hopefully the oil slick stays away at least another week for us!
