Vintage Tilda

Hello again. I'm back with my second card for today. I just love how this one turned out. I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers. Don't you just love this vintage sofa stamp from the You're so Special collection? Tilda with Big Ribbon is from the same collection.

I've been in a Copic funk lately and can't seem to get the coloring result I'm striving for, so I decided to break out the Prisma pencils and OMS.

I stamped the sofa with Tea Dye DI and then added Tattered Rose and Aged Mahagony around the image. I added some stickles to the lace on Tilda's outfit. The papers are from K&Company. The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves and border below the image are Martha Stewart punches.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Tilda on the Loose

Happy Monday! Two quick posts for today. I managed to get a couple cards done on Sunday. I've been so eager to use these two stamps together and I thought they would be perfect for this week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp, which is Coffee and Cream.
There's no sentiment yet. I'll add it later when I have someone to give the card to. I used Copics to color the image (E40 - E49) and then added Antique Linen and Tea Dye DI's around the image. The flower was made from ribbon and glued to a circle with a button embelishment. I went to AC Moore and was so excited to see they had the Tim Holtz film strip and thought it would be perfect for this card. The ticket is also from TH. The papers are from MME's Paris collection.

Dangling Edwing Birthday Wishes

Hello again. Here's my second post for today. It was my son's birthday on Sunday (I can't believe my baby is 20 years old!!!) He humors me when I make him cutesy type cards. I think the Bon Voyage collection from Magnolia is one of my favorites so far, although it's really hard to have a favorite when they're all so darn cute.

When I say the "I can believe I can Fly" sentiment stamp, I just had to have it. My son's favorite movie as child was Space Jam and that was the main song from the movie. He used to sing it to me all the time.

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Tilda in the Garden

Happy Wednesday! Two quick posts today. This is the first card I have to share with you. My daughter needed a birthday card for her boyfriends mother, so I had this one colored already and put together this card for her. I even dusted off the sewing maching and stitched around the edges. I distressed the edges with my TH paper tool and added some tears here and there. The circle sentiment is from Lily of the Valley. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I used the Romantic Hearts Doo Hickey for the edge of the card and around the circle sentiment inside the card.

Happy Valentine's Day! I have two projects to share today. The first is a tag for a gift my daughter is giving for Valentine's Day. It's using one of the adorable Teddy Bea stamps (if you haven't checked they out yet, you have to stop over and see them!!). You can find them here at

Here is a tag style card I made to give to my son.

This cute stamp is Shy Edwin from Magnolia, as well as the Love stamp. I found those cute heart clothespins at Michaels.

Right Through My Heart

This Valentine's card is using the Right Through My Heart Magnolia stamp. This was so much fun to color with my copics. The image and papers are distressed with Velvet Rose and Antique Linen TH distress inks. I decided to dust off the Cricut machine and made the Love at the top of the card. The "Heaven Sent" clip, I found at Big Lots (a pack of 12 for a $1.oo).
The angel wings are one of the Magnolia Doo Hickeys. The Be Mine, Love and Heart Stamps are from AC Moore's Dollar Stamp packs. The flowers and heart pin are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Wednesday! I've got another Valentine's Day card to share. I used LadyBug Hearts Tilda and the Be Mine stamps from Magnolia. Isn't she just adorable?

The Amore bingo card was a freebie from Sugar Creek Hollow Digi Stamps and the ticket and sentiment are from Inkadinkdo. I just bought some of the Cryogen Irridescent white paper and just love the sparkle it adds. I used copics to color the image and added some silver stickles to her hat and around the hearts.

Tilda blowing hearts for Valentine's Day

Hello. I mentioned in my last post, I'm addicted to all things Magnolia now. It's been like Christmas at my house all over again. Except all the gifts have been for me...hee hee! After being laid off for over two years and then having to work two jobs, I've been blessed with getting my old job back...YEAH!!!! And my DH said to celebrate it, I could spend my first paycheck on myself. So....I treated myself to a whole bunch of Magnolia stamps and some Doo Hickeys too.

Since I now have weekends off again, I spent it making my Valentine's Day cards. I also tried some new things. This card being one of them. It's a tealight card but I'm going to put some candy in it instead.
The challenge at Magnolialicious Highlites is Hearts, Pink, White and Silver. The image is Tilda Blowing Hearts. I colored her with Copics and added some stickles on her wings and the leaves and swirls. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I'm also entering this in the Magnolia Down Under challenge, whose theme is Love and the Magnolia Stamp Lovers theme of Glitter.

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!
