Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is enjoying better weather than the chilly rain we're having here in Philadelphia. I've been dying to use these beautiful stamps with Tilda and Edwin and the Rose Trellis. The challenge over at Magnolia-licious Highlites is to use both Tilda and Edwin on your card. I've colored them with Copics and added some glossy accent to the flowers on Edwin and Tilda. I also added some perfect pearls to Tilda's hair and her earrings. I managed to get my hands on a couple rolls of that raffia lace. It's so difficult to find over here in the states.
The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Their challenge this week is Wings, so I've added some butterflies using my Martha Stewart punch.
Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter holiday.

It's almost Friday. I can't wait for the weekend. I have a quick post tonight. The Totally Tilda Challenge right now is "Tilda All Over the World". I had colored Japanese Tilda and the Magnolia Tree but just couldn't find the right paper to go with it. Well, I somehow stumbled upon the Webster's Page website and I saw they had a digital section. You can buy their paper collections as digital downloads. The hardest part was choosing what collections I wanted to try first. This is from the Postcards from Paris collection. The great thing about the digital papers is you can resize them to fit your cards so the entire page fits. I chose to keep it simple because I didn't want to cover up that gorgeous design on the paper.
I must have been living under a rock because I've just discovered their papers and already placed an order over at Two Peas in a Pod (their having a sale on some of their Webster's stuff). I've also been dying to try some of their bloomers ribbon. I have to say they are super speedy over at Two Peas, cuz my box of goodies arrived today and I can't wait to play.
Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Monday! I finally got around to coloring one of my stamps from the Spring Kit. Isn't Tilda just adorable? The challenge over at 7kidcollegefund is "Seeing Spots", so I chose this polka dot paper from the Bloom and Grow collection from MME. Added some Distress Crackle paint to the edges, ribbon and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Hello. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I don't know where the time goes anymore. I managed to get a couple cards done yesterday and this card is for my Mother's birthday. I used the sketch over at Wild Orchid Crafts challenge for this card. I managed to score some of that awesome raffia lace on ebay. It's a shame no one sells it over here in the U.S. I used the Magnolia Doo Hickey Romantic Lace Die and cut it to go around the image and Tilda's Lace for around the card. I colored Tilda with Copics. It doesn't show well in the photo but the ribbon at the top is from Martha Stewart and says "Happy Birthday". The papers are from MME and the butterflies are a MS punch. And of course, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I plan to enter this into following challenges: Wild Orchid Crafts - Sketch Just Magnolia - Anything Goes w/ Buttons Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Ribbon Sketchy Colors - Sketch Stamptacular Sunday - Button, Bling, Bloom Thanks for stopping by.

Hello. Hope everyone had a great week. I finally had some time to make something. It feels like ages since I put a card together. Where does the time go? Magnolia-licious Highlites is having an Easter/Spring Extravaganza Contest. There's three categories you can enter in. I made this for the "Anything but a Card" category. The challenge at Magnolia Down Under is Shabby Chic and inspired me to go in that direction for embellishing the bird house.
I used the Serenade cartridge on my cricut to make the birdhouse. Used Tim Holtz Distress Paint to give it a shabby feel. The flowers are some cotton seam binding that I colored with some Tattered Angels Mist and sewed. The butterfly is a Marianne's Creatables die and the Love word was made from my Sweethearts Cricut cartridge. And of course, Tilda is sitting inside with her lovely flowers.
The crinkled ribbon was purchased at Pixie Paper Perfections. They have some beautifuls colors there and great service.
Thanks for stopping by.
