Strolling Tilda & Edwin

On someone's blog I saw them post about a romantic couple of Tilda and Edwin for some reason my mind immediately thought of combining Edwin wants a hug and this Tilda that I can't remember her name. 

Both images are colored with copics. For the dress I used RV 32 & 34 but didn't have a third color in the spectrum so I used the clear pen and dabbed some color off the lighter one and then used that to add just a light touch of color to her dress. I cut out both Edwin and Tilda and kind of intertwined them a bit and then glued them to a basic grey background and used copics to make a shadow around them. Tilda's dress, hat and umbrella all have some frosted lace stickles on the edges. I distressed the edges and sewed them all down. The corners are nestabilities fleur-de-lis cut in half diagonally and then I rounded off the edges. I colored the pearls in the center of the flowers with a yellow copic and added the other pearls to the corners. I really liked how this card turned out. Now to figure out what to use it for. I am made this card for the Midweek Magnolia challenge of romantic and chic

Silhouette Lady

I saw this stamp at my lss and it just spoke to me - "take me home, take me home". I don't know how stamps do that. 
Pretty simple. I stamped words (the angel company) in plumeria chalk ink for the background and the image (Printworks) in black over top. The papers were all scraps that were laying about that seemed to go together. The swirl is from memory box in a silver paper - it was already cut just laying about. Then I added some nailhead stickers and it was done. I really like how it turned out. Now if I could use up the rest of the scraps that are laying about.

Cherry Tilda

I saw this cherry rhinestone sticker at Target and knew exactly what I had to do with it. If you want one run do not walk to your nearest Target. They are on clearance in the see spot save section. I got a bunch for 30 cents a piece - had been a dollar.

Tilda is colored with copics and highlighted with a white pen. The yellow dotted paper is the background from the cherry sticker. Waste not want not. lol The scalloped squares are die cuts from nestabilities. The blue dotted stripes are tape from the Queen and Company. I put red ribbon behind the stripe of blue and a smaller ribbon over the cherry stem. The red dots at the bottom are nailhead stickers. After I was done something didn't seem just right so I added the swirls - die cuts from sizzix and then added stickles to them. I am submitting this card at for the anything goes challenge and for Tilda's Town anything goes challenge

Collage stamps are some of my favorites so when I saw this Hero Arts bird collage I just had to have it. 

This image is colored with copics and then there are sparkly pen accents and glitter glues added. The key is a memory box die cut and the circle is a nestabilities from stampabilities. I colored the circles in with my copics and traced around the inside edge. The buttons are some from my stamping stash and from my dress making stash (I have lots of different stashes lol) The blue lined paper is from bo bunny. The paper behind it is from basic grey. Both are edged with midnight blue chalk ink. The plaid strip and blue polka dot strip are trendy tape form Queen & Co. It is really cool as parts are transparent and let the paper show through. I thought it turned out pretty cool. Different from the style I have been doing lately. Gotta stir things up now and then.

Watering Can

I got this watering can stamp from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design here. I had stamped it a while back and then it didn't work for the sketch I was using so I set it aside. I pulled it out a couple of days ago and created this card.

I left the card pretty simple but I love this big bow with the tag tied on. The image is colored with copics. The watering can has diamond glaze applied to it. The flower centers and the butterfly have touches of stardust stickles. The dp is from basic grey. The other cardstock is all scraps I had laying about. I don't know about you but I have more scraps than I know what to do with so I love using them when I can.

Little Things

I love butterflies. There is hardly a stamp with a butterfly that I don't love. So when I found this digi from That's Fabulous here I just had to get it. 

I found a pretty moth and colored it similar. I know it is a butterfly but I liked the look of this moth. It is colored with copics and has some star dust stickles added. I put lots of flowers on the side and used yellow stickles for the centers. For the ribbon I put down scor-tape along the bottom and the added the ribbon by making little tucks along the way and pressing them down with my hand. 
I really like how it turned out. I have an owl that I got from the same place can't wait to use it now. It's so fabulous to make cards.

My youngest dd turns 20 on Tuesday. It means no more teenagers. How sad is that. I have had teenagers in the house for 15 years and now those years will be gone. I never had a problem with any one age more than another so this is a bittersweet moment. I am getting older. lol Here is the card I made for her. She loves teddy bears.

The image is from Bildmalarna. It is all colored with copics. The pump has diamond glaze on it. The flower centers are done with citrus flower soft. The corner punches are done with ek success punches. The lady but is an old earring of my dd's as is the butterfly. So she should get a kick out of those embellishments.
Here is another view without the glare on the pump.

Hope you enjoy.

Stamper's Quest Pastels

Here is a card I did recently for Stamper's Quest. The challenge was to use pastels. I don't know why but I had a lot of trouble getting the right colors. Finally, I got it worked out and this is the result. The stamp is from
