B is for butterflies!

I am back again with my second card tonight.  After posting this one I am calling it a night.

Oh but what a lovely day it has been here.  It was just like a summer's day at times!

Here I have used a LOTV stamp.  She is coloured with copics and promarkers.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the lovely butterfly border is made using Tim Holtz On the Edge die.   In addition I have added cheesecloth,  pearls and charm all from Ebay.  Th ribbon is from my stash and the leaves were made using the Martha Stewart 'branch' punch.

A TOUCH OF ROMANCE

Hi folks 

Well it looks a nice bright morning here, I do hope we will see sunshine today again like we did yesterday!  It really lifts the spirits to see some sunshine.  Do you agree?

Today I have another creation to share which I made for a Competition last year.  I did no good in the Competition but kept the photos.  It was a double whammy I made here, so there is a shaped card plus a smaller matching gift card.


I think this fits many occasions really, celebrations, Get Well, Special Days etc.

Papers First Edition (? I think?)
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts and Mulberry Crafts 
Swirl:  Magnolia die-cuts
Leaves:  Martha Stewart 'branch' punch

TILDA GETS KRAFTY

Hi folks

I am doing quite well with posting this week for a change, lets hope I can keep it up.

This is a card I made with one or two Challenges in mind. Basically I set out to use Lilac, blue, Kraft, White and buttons and bows.  I think I have ticked all those boxes here.  The bow is not so easy to see but it is there on the right hand side above the flowers.

Tilda is coloured with copis, and you will see I have used a mixture of die-cuts, Magnolia, Memory Box, Cheery Lynn and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I was inspired by the following Challenges:
Colour Create Challenge - Lilac, blue, white and kraft (lovely combination!) 
The Pixie Cottage Challenge - buttons and Bows 
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Getting Krafty 
Willow Sketchie Challenge - Anything Goes 

I am off for a cuppa now, 

Thanks for looking,

TILDA COOKS FOR VALENTINE

Hi folks

Today I have a card I have made using Traditional Valentine Colours including the use of some lovely red flat back pearl hearts.  Tilda in the Kitchen image is coloured with copics and promarkers, and as you will see I have added lace and die-cuts.  The papers are Melissa Frances Kitcheny. The two large pearls I have coloured with copics to get the right shade.  Do you see the die-cut heart peepling through too?

The leaves are made from a lovely Cheery Lynn die and I think everything else came from my stash.
