Tilda in pink

This is my first card using the lovely Tilda with Hawaiian Flower stamp. I love this stamp and have to say it is my current favourite. I coloured the lovely Tilda with Copics but I'm sorry to say I did not write down the colours used. The papers are from Pink Petticoat and the heart lace trim is a Martha Stewart Border Punch. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lilac swirl is a Creatables die. I'm not sure where I bought the charm as I have had it quite some time.

Hope you like it!

Here Comes Summer

Hi there

It seems ages since I last posted a card (it is only a week but seems longer). This is the card I have made for my mum's 86th birthday tomorrow. I made it using a decoupage sheet and papers from the Popcorn the Bear Triple CD from Crafters Companion. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the swirl was created on the Cricut. I have also used a createables die for the flower and the decoupage was mounted onto a Nestabilities die cut. The ribbon was coloured to match using ProMarkers.

I am entering this card in the Crafter's Companion Here Comes Summer Challenge.

Almost all white

Good evening

What an awful day today - did it stop raining at all? A good reason to craft all day since I can't feel guilty about not helping out in the garden.

The above card was made using one of my favourite Lily of The Valley Stamps with just a hint of colour. I used several different embossing folders and then cut the embossed papers into sections and placed them on a piece of white card. Next I wrapped ribbon to cover the joins and glued this to an 8 x 8 scalloped card base. I then punched out 24 floral shapes with my EK Success Punch and scrunched them up to distress them, created three flowers and held them together with white brads. A swirl was added that had been cut on the Cricut and one of the Magnolia Doiley Flowers with a bow attached. Glitter was added to finish off.

Magnolia card

Welcome to my very first post. A good friend persuaded me to have a go at creating a blog and to enter some of the crafting challenges that appear to be extremely popular at the moment, because they are great fun - so here we go. I hope you will enjoy seeing some of my efforts and that you will return regularly to see what I have been up to otherwise I will end up talking to myself!!! Please leave comments if you wish as I would love to know what you think.

I am entering the above card in the Just Magnolia and hAnglar sTanglar Challenge.

I coloured the Magnolia image with Copics in the following colours:

Then I added lots of glitter.

I gathered up some old lace I had in my stash and adorned it with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Hope you like it!

I am off now to do some blog hopping. See you soon. x
