It has been a busy weekend here at my house and so I set out to work on this card for display to you today trying to focus on color and summertime. Of course this is Tilda with her little ladybug friend that I got from Kelly over at KLSNS awhile ago. I know Kelly still has this one if you missed out and I just love her, isn't that little outfit the cutest. I am still trying to find the perfect gouloshes for myself! LOL!
The designer paper is from K&Co Berry Sweet Pack and I coordinated it perfectly with SU kiwi and baha. The color in this picture does not give you a good look at that but it truly is beautiful together. The grosgrain is SU as well. Here is a close up of her dress that I colored with my copic markers. Oh and there are a few things I want to remind you of too!

So today's card is a little bear with watermelon and I honesly do not know what image this is because it was one that I got on SCS pif thread and thought he was cute so I nabbed it. That thread is awesome if you want instant images instead of making your wish list and waiting for one to arrive. I colored this little guy with my copic markers and then used some DCWV paper and matted on SU. It is just a nice summery card.
Have a blessed week and take care.

I must say that this has to be one of my most favorite Sara Kay images- My Sweet Lili. It reminds me of younger days and my favorite teddy bear. I just love her. This little notebook is one I got from the dollar bin at Michael's a long time ago and i thought it was time to get to using it. I covered the book with SU Pink Piroquette which I ran through the embosser (swiss dots and birds and swirls). The paper is Basic Gray Porcelain that I got from 7kidscollegefund. I didn't order this paper at first because it is so light but it truly is beautiful and especially for those vintage kind of projects. So I am thrilled that I had Tab send it to me. I finished off the embellishements with some grosgrain (SU) and then a little clip.
The tabs on the inside I made using the lace punch from SU and I made it so that there were 6 scallops, then folded it in half and attached as a tab. I had a friend (thank you cindy!) that sent me a beautiful box that she had these little dividers in and I loved the idea. Whomever I give this to can add their own tab words then.
That is it for today ladies! Don't forget your new Magnolia stamps!

I had to make a few more graduation cards and since our school colors are red and black that is the color scheme that I chose. I wanted it to be quite simple and so I chose a simple sketch. I embossed the left side with clear embossing powder on black and you know, I don't heat emboss much but it was fun, lets face it watching those images go from dusty to shiny- it is fun! LOL! So of course I had to emboss the Grad part as well. This card looks alright in the picture but I think in person it is even better and I hope the grad enjoys it too!
Have a great weekend ladies!

This is one of the Stampavie Lelo Dragon Flower and I know I used him the other day but I had to just use it again. It is for my chemo friends, I am an angel and I like to send her bright and fun cards- she likes pink so this should do the trick don't you think? Oh yeah..... she has gone through alot, she is my age, kids and I just think she must be a strong lady- an inspiration to many of us. I hope she smiles.
I used shimmerz on his wings again but I just can not get them to show- no matter how much light and turning of the card I did. But they do look so sweet, they actually look like frosting to me with glitter in it. LOL!- no I know, I won't eat them!
I know it is a short post but it has been a long day and I need to get my beauty rest or else I will look like this guy here............ Before I leave though, I wanted to remind you of the wonderful new Magnolia Pet Collection that is coming to 7kidscollegefund. I am so confused about which ones to get!
Oh and come back tomorrow as I have some exciting news to share with all of you! Well, at least it is exciting news for me............ and I hope you will share in this one!

So I thought it best make her PINK of course and used Basic Grey Bittersweet papers to coorinate with my copic coloring (don't forget you can order over at KLSNS as well). Like I mentioned the coloring was so easy and finished so well. I added the stickles to give her a little glimmer and then some flower b/c what pixie could be without flowers? Here you can see the stickles that make her really look like a pixie!
Kelly has a sale going on that if you spend $25 you can save $5 using JUNE25 code and if you spend $50 you save $10 using JUNE50 code. She has wonderful new things popping up from Magnolia's, copics, Inkadinkadoo and new CC designs of course.
Sorry to cut this short but I have had some problems with my hands and typing tonight is excruciatingly painful so I hope I didn't misspell anything either! Have a wonderful Sunday!

I used my Memento black to stamp the images on my Neenah paper and then of course my yellow and green copics to coordinate. I added some shimmerz to the leaves on the tree as well . The sentiment is one of a few that a friend of mine sent to me and I am just loving them!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend- take care!

The DP is from Basic Grey Lime RickeyI just love the designs and the colors. Plus once again I was able to combine the papers and get a nice effect (hoping to get even better at this!) I almost feel like getting rid of all my other papers and keep just my BG because they are so yummy! (but I won't!, don't fret!) I stamped my image with Memento ink (black tuxedo) and then colored it with my copic markers (for all those new ladies- these are a MUST of course!) Then if you enlarge the picture you can see his wings sparkle, I love this and I used SHIMMERZ on them.
Speaking of shimmerz, Tab over at 7kidscollegefund is having a sale on them and she is going to give you 10% off if you use coupon code shimmer10. And don't forget to get your PRE-orders for the new Magnolia PET collection too!

So I inked him up and pulled out my blue and yellow copics to coordinate with the paper Basic Grey . I thought this was perfect because it is fun, bright and sassy! LOL~! I didn't put a sentiment on here because I have a couple people that have asked me for cards and so I left it for them to add. I have been trying to sell more of my cards and it is going well- word of mouth!
If you look at this last picture here- I added Shimmerz to his wings so they sparkle and they do! I love these vibrant colors and what they do for your projects- you hafta check em out! I then added a couple of dew drops to finish it off.
I also wanted to announce the sale over at KLSNS. Kelly is selling all the nestabillities in stock at 15% off and the Cuttlebug folders at 25% off. Plus if you spend $25 you will get $5 off with coupon code June 25 and if you spend $50 you will get $10 off with June 50!

There are alot of others as well, more animals, jungle themed Edwin&Tilda, flowers- it is an amazing collection!
Wednesday, June 3, 2009
This little Chasing Tilda is running to you with open arms to give you the lift you need to get through the rest of this week (and into the weekend!).
Now, I have to tell you a little funny though, when I first saw a peek of this image I thought it was a strange image, this was before I knew the name of the collection either. For those that know me well will understand why I thought it was strange- but looking at this little Tilda, I thought they had made her a one legged girl! I honestly thought she had an amputated leg! I personally think they should have shown some sort of foot/shoe even if just a peek of one. But alas, she is still sweet and I would love her all the more with one leg.
I have really been trying to use more designer paper, meaning 2-3 designs on each card because I think it ads a lot to the card- so here is one I had that I got the paper from a designer pack a year or so ago. I am actually trying to use up alot of these papers because I prefer the basic greys and such but can't just throw these out (they are still pretty). My hardware and punch is from SU and the little charm is a K&Co.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!

But I will get on with my little card here. I started by stamping Chasing Edwin that you can find over at 7kidscollege fund. I used momento tuxedo black because I still find this to be the best ink for the best results- along with the neenah cardstock (I love this stuff!). Of course, I used my copic markers to color him and Tab over at 7kids is getting in the copic refills this week so don't forget to get them before you run out! Do you see my stitching? LOL- well I guess you can call it that- I did it on the machine but I tell you I am not good with the sewing machine. Yikes! But I always love cards with stitching on them so I have to do them now and then and it does add to the card I think...... maybe? The flowers are prima, I used a couple different variety for this card. I then added a little bit of stickles to the clouds to make them shimmer.
Just a note: 7kids college fund is having 50% sale on all wood mounted stamps, just use coupon code WOOD50 AND 10% off all shimmerz with coupon code SHIMMER10- both through June 8th!
Well I hope that your day is beautiful, as beautiful as it is in this card for Edwin!
