FINALLY posting!!! Got cards!!!

Hi All!!!!

So sorry that I have not posted anything in such a long, LONG time!!! Been too busy. Life gets in the way!!!

Anyways....here are some cards I did lately!!!

Here's a Tilda card.
I did this for a swap in a group I'm in. It's a Purple and Yellow card swap. I used my Cuttlebug, D'vine swirls folder (one of my favorites) and my Rectangle Nesties (love my Nesties and have more on my wish list!!). I used my Tilda with Rose stamp. The "Love" is from 'All You Need Is Love' by Technique Tuesday. I used my SU markers to color. When I win the Lottery, I'm going to buy me Copics!! LOL!!! You can't tell, but the rose was stamped twice and attached with a pop-dot to stand out. And I used Yellow twinklette for her wings. Cardstock is from The Paper Studio (I think).
Another Tilda card.
For this Tilda card, my friend Becky sent me the image. And since I needed to do an Easter card for another group, I decided to use the image. Again, I used my SU markers to color. The DS is from Rusty Pickle - White Chocolate Bunnies (Velveteen Rabbit). Card stock is from The Paper Studio (I think). The flowers are from Prima 'Iced Got Flowers? (Summer Sun - yellow - and Rosy Red - pink). I used the real mini brads, I think it's from Queen & Company. The word stamp is SU, All Holidays.
Scraplings - birthday
For another group I'm in, I participated in a Birthday scrapling swap. It was the first time for me to do a swap like this. And I had fun doing it! I used a Studio G Mini clear stamp set for this. I used scraps in my scrap bin. The wording is "You're only a kid once, but you can be young for a lifetime". I used my SU tag punches for the word. The flowers are Flora Doodles, Purple Passioin Mini Florettes by Petaloo. In the inside, I have "Happy birthday" stamped in there.
Pop-up card.
On March 21, two of my friends and I went to a pop-up card class held by our local library. In one of the groups I'm in, I am participating in the Birthday club. And one of the April ladies birthday is coming up. And I wanted to do a pop-up card. She liked Yellow and Hunter green, so I used those colors for her. I used my D'Vine swirls embossing folder (CB). Then, I used a new CB die (well, new from last year), Birthday Wishes die. The DS, I don't remember who made it, I cut the presents from it. Green CS is Handsome Hunter from SU. The Yellow CS, I don't know. The "Celebrate" stamp is from That's Jazzy Stamp Dreams. It was stamped in Handsome Hunter ink (SU). I don't remember how I came across her blog, but she was giving away stamps to celebrate her opening. The balloon stamp is from SU - Birthday Whimsey, stamped with Ballet Blue and Elegant Eggplant ink pads (SU). I used Pastel Blue & Lavendar Scrapbook stitches from Making Memories for the string. The birthday cake is from 'You Take the Cake' from MFT. It was stamped twice - first in the same yellow CS. Cut and used Yellow Stickles for the candles. The second time was stamped on beige CS, colored with SU markers, Certainly Celery and Glorious Green and Green stickles. I used pop-dots to pop out the cake.

I Hope you all enjoy my cards!!!

Hugs!!

Some cards

So I'm getting back into the groove of things. I went cropping last night and worked on cards. Since I was so bright and left my container of clear stamps, I had to work with what I brought - which was some stamped Tilda images from my friend Becky. I must say, that I'm really loving those Tilda stamps from Magnolia.

This card I did for a challenge on one group that I'm in. It's a color challenge, Brown and Orange.


The CS are from The Paper Company. I used markers to color the image, Copic (Skin White) and SU (Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel, Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue & Really Rust). I used Creamy Brown Cat's eye to distress the cream CS - which I used my new Nesties - Large Scalloped Rectangle.

The sentiment stamp is Heidi Grace Winnifred Street birthday, stamped in SU Chocolate Chip. The flowers are: Brown (on the bottom), Bazzill Primula, Orange (from my stash) and Heidi Grace Printed Flowers. You can't see it, but I have bling on Tilda's shirt (yellow for her button) and on her pants (blue for the button). The bling is from K&C. And you can't see this too...but I used Star Dust stickles for her wings.

This card, I just did, because again, I left my container of clear stamps at home (I never said that I was the brighest bulb in the pack!!): Friends are flowers in the Garden of Life


CS from The Paper Company. For the Tilda image, I used my Large Scalloped Rectangle nestie and used Creamy Brown Cat's eye to distress it. I used my Copic marker (Skin white) and SU (Summer Sun, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow, Glorious Green, Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana & Cameo Coral). I used Yellow Stickles and SU Crystal Effect for the flower. And used Star Dust stickles for her wings.

The sentiment which says "Friends are Flowers in the Garden of Life" is a stamp that my friend Chrissy gave me for Christmas and stamped in SU Basic Black ink. I used the smallest scalloped rectangle nestie for that and used the Creamy brown cat's eye to distress it.

The PP is Adornit Carolee's Creation - Sister's Collection, Dozen of Daisies. I really like this paper!!!

Thanks for looking!

And...later Gators!
