I used Copics and pencils to color Tilda. Stampin UP cardstock and DCWV dp was used.
Thanks for looking and for all comments.

Tilda, my friend

I'm entering this card in the Just Magnolia challenge. The black and Cool Caribbean is SU, DP is Olivia by Basic Grey. Tilda was colored with my Copics. The sentiment is from SU's Blossom Abound set. Ribbon and button is from my stash and the ovals and sentiment was cut with Nestabilities.

I would love for Suzanne Dean to come to my area (Indy/Columbus,IN) to teach me how to color. Is there anyone from this area who would like to join us? I've contacted Suzanne and we're trying to work it out.

Thanks for looking at my card and please let me know what you think!

Edwin gives roses

I made this card for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge. We had to make a card with our neglected Edwin.
I used SU cardstock and DP. Edwin was colored with Copics and a coat of Glossy Accents was applied to the roses.
A Prima flower, button and floss was put together over the Hero Arts sentiment that was cut with my Nestabilities. The oval behind Edwin was cut with the Nestabilities too and shaded with ink. The white cardstock was cut with a MS heart punch.
Thanks for looking and any comments make my day!!

Tilda loves snow

I'm going to enter Miss Tilda in the Just Magnolia challenge. The challenge called for acetate on the card. Tilda loves the competition!
The card base and ribbon is from SU. It is an old color called Cranberry Crisp. Snowflakes and sentiment have Baja Breeze below the acetate and there is a layer of glitter on top of the snowflakes. The DP is Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey. Tilda and the wall are Magnolias. They were colored with my Copics. Sentiment is by Inkadinkado. Liquid Applique was used for the fur, glitter pen on the wings and heart and Flower Soft in Polar White for the snow on top and at the bottom of the wall.
Thanks for looking and sharing your comments with me. It makes my day!!!

Tilda Sittin' on a Strawberry!

I needed a card for a friend's birthday so I thought I would make my first round card. It really looks better in person.
I used Distress Inks for coloring, cut out all the images and used dimensionals to pop them up on a doilly. I added a ribbon and plenty of stickles to the center of the flowers. A MS branch punch and a EK Success flower punch was used too! Tilda, strawberry and flowers were bought from Diana at the Magnolia-licious store. You can find the store link on my sidebar. Thanks for looking!

Tanner's 15th Birthday Card

I needed to make a card for my grandson's birthday. I used the bouncing brayer technique with brilliant blue ink (SU) on glossy cardstock. The image was stamped with black Stazon. Since Tanner's favorite color is yellow.........I had to use summer sun cardstock (SU) for the base. I hope he likes it. I know he'll like what I put inside ($).

Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash Sketch Challenge #5

The sketch this week is about bling! Add it to your cards!! I never feel comfortable adding alot of bling. I have tried during this birthday bash to add more bling. Maybe I'll get over this feeling one of these days. I look at all the cards that are posted and love how the bigger and smaller roses are grouped together. I put them together and it looks like I've just thrown them on the card.

For this card I used: SU cardstock, SU punches for the sentiment and BasicGrey DP, Indian Summer. Green felt flower for the leaves and a crochet flower that I made. Satin ribbon, stickles for the wings and hair bows, nestabilities for the deckled shape behind Tilda, punch (?) for the flower pot and a BG brad for the center of the flower.
Tilda was colored with Copics:
Skin....E000,E00,E93 (blush)
Watering Can......C0,C1,C3

Thanks for looking and let me know if you have a trick with the bling!

Tilda was bought fron Diana at the Magnolia-licious Store
Thanks for looking and for all the wonderful comments I receive.

Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash Sketch Challenge #3

I wanted to make a card for Sketch challenge #3 of the Birthday Bash and I needed a card for another granddaughter's I combined both.
The cardstock is SU kraft & olive, Dp is DCWV Flower Shower Spring Matstack, Prima flowers, Robin's Nest clear dew drops, oval and scallop oval punches from SU and Copics. I'm adding a picture of the Copics I used.
I just about made a mess of this card when I sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Pearl) on the entire card. Next time I will spray the flowers, etc. prior to assembling.

May Challenge Sketch

I made this card for my grand-daughters' birthday using the May challenge sketch. I really struggle trying to add all the "stuff" that I see most everyone else using! I really like all the flowers, ribbon, lace, etc. but I never know where to put it. I sell most of my cards at a local flower shop, so I try to keep them real simple and easy to mail.

I used SU cardstock and ink for the background (around gate), DP is DCWV, flower punch by EK Success, MS branch punches, Stickles , ribbon, Glossy Accents for the shoes and Copics for coloring.
Skin E000,E00, E93
Dress & Socks BG0000, BGooo, BG10
Shoes Gate & Basket E25, E29, E35, E39
Flowers B00, B02, B06
Leaves & Grass YG93, YG95, YG97

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!
