Tilda with big ribbon

Happy Friday! It looks like another rainy weekend. The good part it means lots of crafting.

I made this birthday card for my Mom's birthday which is on Monday. I colored Tilda with Copic markers E000, E00, E11, E25, E31, E50, R20, RV91, RV95, V91, V93 and V95. The luggage was colored with glimmer mist - sand, creme de chocolate, tattered leather, and silver. I used Spica pens for the details on the luggage - silver, lavender and brown.

The butterfly background paper is from Memory Box. Oh and I used my new seedless preserves distress ink to ink up the edges. My Martha Stewart butterfly punch came in handy for the little butterfly which is sitting on the luggage. I used frost glimmer mist on the flowers to create the soft blue color. The intricate fence which is used as the backdrop for the card was created with the ornamental iron Cricut cartridge. To give the card some depth and dimension I used pop dots on Tilda and the luggage.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend!

Thinking of You! - Tilda with her Bunny

This card is for a co-worker who lost her mom this past week.

I used copic C0, C1, E000, E00, E11, E25,E31, E50, G94, G99, R20, R81, R83, R85, T1, T3 to color Tilda with her Bunny. To create the layered look I used my spellbinders. I gave Tilda some earrings.

To complete the card I added pink and salmon flowers. I added "Thinking of You" to a simple stamp and attached it with green embroidery floss.

Thank You -Time in Paradise

Here is a thank you card I made using the Magnolia Starfish Stamp. I used distress ink frayed burlap and broken china for the background. Then I added perfect pearls to give the background a sparkly sheen. I stamped the starfish with walnut stain as well as the sentiment. I used tattered leather glimmer mist to achieve the brown glitzy ribbon.

I love the ocean and am so blessed that my son now lives right across the street from a beautiful beach. We spent Labor Day weekend there so I thought this would be an appropriate card to send them as a special thank you for an awesome weekend in paradise!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

August Button Farm Kit

I haven't blogged in a couple of weeks. I was visiting my son and his wife in paradise. We had an awesome time! Then I did not have internet for about a week. But I'm back.

I finished this awesome kit yesterday. I modified it a little. I inked all the edges with black soot distress ink. On the front cover instead of buttons and ribbon I used to keys and the chain so they would hang nicely on the front.

Now the album can be given to a male or female.

Have a good evening! Thanks for stopping by.
