Can't Stop Thinking of You

Hi there! Today I have a new little card to show you. I'm using two of the gorgeous Magnolia stamps from the new Sweet Crazy Love collection: "Pie Tilda" and Sweet Moon", I just LOVE these images.


I cut the "thinking bubble" shape for my card with my Cricut Expression (Wild Card cartridge). Then, I dry embossed it using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. I also punched the butterflies on white cardstock, colored them with my Copics and added some Distress stickles for a shiny finish (Martha Stewart's Classic Butterfly punch).




The beautiful flowers and decorative pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts. (I just ordered some more flowers and other "gooodies"...... and can't wait to get them!). The patter paper is from My Mind's Eye, Found and Lost II collection.


I've heat embossed the sentiment with A La Mode detail black embossing power. I also wanted to have Tilda "floating in the air", so I added some pop dots for a 3 dimensional effect.


As usual, Miss Tilda and her sweet little moon have been colored with my Copic markers. But this time, I also added a lot of Distress stickles to the moon and I love the way it turned out. Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Pinks: R89, R85, R83 and R81. Grays: C5, C3 and C1. Browns: E59, E57, E33, E31 and R50. Moon: Y26, Y23, Y21, Y15 and Y11.

Winter Wishes

Good morning friends. I hope you are having a great weekend so far. It's a gorgeous Sunday morning here in Florida and I'm getting ready to go play some basketball with my guys. It's also time to play over at It's a Magnolia Challenge. This week we would love to see your Winter Cards. I thought I would use my little "Tilda in Winter Night" stamp for this challenge. Since I don't have any winter background stamps, I decided to draw a window for her to sit on. Doesn't  it look so cute?



 

For my card today, I used Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye papers. All the edges are distressed and finished with white crackle paint.





I used my new Magnolia doohickey dies: "Bloomy Tag" and "Romantic Lace". I got them with some other "goodies" from Magnolia (prize for being Blogger of the Month). Thank you so much, I LOVE them!


 I decorated my blue fabric flower with a couple of white decorative pins from Wild Orchid Crafts. My focal image was colored with Copic markers. Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Blues: B99, B97, B95 and B21. Browns: E59, E57, E35, E33, E31 and E50. Grays: C5, C3 and C1.

Tilda's Birthday Wishes

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm back home from an awesome vacation in Colombia. I spent the last three weeks enjoying my family, eating all of my favorite food y visiting beautiful places. Now, the suitcases are finally unpacked... house is clean... and I'm ready to share a birthday card I made for my cousin Lulu. This time I used "Tilda With Peony". This is the very first Magnolia stamp I bought and one of my favorites.


I used Bo Bunny papers, blue lace and pearl's trim. The tag was cut with my Cricut Expressions using the Tags, Bags Boxes & More cartridge. The sentiment on the tag was heat embossed using Color Box archival ink and A La Mode black embossing powder.






The beautiful flowers are from Prima Marketing and Wild Orchid Crafts. I added Crystal flakes for some sparkle.



As usual, Ms. Tilda was colored with my Copic markers. Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Hair: E37, E33, E31 and E50. Dress and socks: BG18, BG15, BG11 and BG0000. Shoes: C5, C3 and C1. Flower: R22, R20 and R00.
