You're beautiful

I love fuchsias. I can't say that I took very good care of mine this year but I do love them. SO when I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it. Here is what I created.
The stamp is from the set Celebrating You from the Craft's Meow. It is colored with copics. The dp is from basic grey. I used a fiskars border punch for the top and bottom and then added some half pearls along the edge. The butterfly is from my dd's stash of hair things. It doesn't look like she had ever used it. I did this card for an on-line book club, Color Me Creative Book Endz, I belong to. We read the Language of flowers. Fuchsia means humble love. Here is the link if you would like to see the other creations or read the next book, The Mercy of Thin Air. LINK
This is also done for the open challenge at flutterby Wednesdays here.
Hope you enjoy.

Tilda with bunny

Here is a card I did quite a while ago that I would like to share now. The top, bow and shoe are paper pieced. The swirl is made with a Tim Holtz die. The flower is felt and sprayed with a cherry spray. My mind has gone and I can't remember what is called and my cat is keeping my lap warm. lol. The scalloped bottom is done with punched circles all in a row. 
Hope you enjoy.

Cellar Door

Come slide down my cellar door and we'll be jolly friends forever more. Do you remember the song? Isn't Tilda just the jolliest. Here she is at the cellar door.

Tilda and her cellar door are colored with copics. The flower centers have yellow stickles. There is silver stickles on the watering can and the shovel. Then just a few stickles are on the bottom of the apron and on the shoes and shoe laces. Tilda's dress is paper pieced - just the sleeves and the bottom. The dp is from oliva by basic grey. She is popped with foam tape. The flowers are from prima flowers. The ribbon is from my stash. Have a great day.

Cool Edwin

I always need guy cards and never seem to have any in my stash. Why is that? lol Well here is another Edwin. This time I hadn't used these two Maggies so got to play with new stamps.

Doesn't he look cool? Edwin and most of the car are colored with copics. The metal and lights are colored with twinkling H2O's. The seats are done with a white souffle pen. That doesn't show up very well even in real life. The car has a thin layer of diamond glaze on it. The dp is from a Christmas basic grey collection. The grass is two layers of die cuts from my favorite stamps. Edwin is popped up with foam tape.  I saw someone else use this Edwin and car together and knew I had to have them. I'm sorry I don't remember who it was.
I'm entering this in the Magnolia stamp lovers primary colors  challenge here.

Give Edwin a Hug

I needed to play with my Maggies again. It has been a while. I still have several that haven't seen ink and this isn't one of them. Oh well lots more fun for another day.

Edwin is colored with copics. His vest and all the dp are from basic grey's ambrosia collection. I was looking for a small plaid for his vest when I came across this paper and thought it would look great for a vest. The buttons are a die cut from memory box and have diamond glaze applied. The two corner dp's are a die cut with an inverted scallop from nestabilites. 
Have a great day.

Beary Happy Day

I had to make a card for a little one year old boy. Here is what I came up with.

I used a very old tac stamp. Isn't this bear just the cutest. I don't even know what set he is from that is how old a stamp it is. He is colored with copics. The dp is from color me silly by basic grey. The center pulls out and can be used as a bookmark.  Hope you enjoy.
