Tilda With Gift

Hi! Thanks so much for visiting.  Today I wanted to share with you this birthday card I created using Magnolia's Tilda With Gift rubber stamp.  For my color choice I used the photo inspiration "pop of pink" from The Shabby Tea Room.  I also used the bingo board from Totally Tilda & Friends. I ended up using more than just one line on the bingo board. I almost did a full house but I was missing 2 squares to achieve that.

  

I started with a 5 x 5 bubble gum pink card base.  I punched a 5 x 5 piece of white card stock using an eyelet lace border punch and an eyelet lace corner punch.  I embossed a piece of bubble gum pink card stock using a dot embossing folder and backed it in white and peach fuzz card stock. I added a piece of bubble gum seam binding across the bottom of the embossed card stock.  


I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and then backed it in peach fuzz and white card stock. To create the flower I started with 2 dusty rose fabric flowers. I added a white paper flower and a mini pink and a mini light pink paper flower to the fabric flowers.  Then I added a baby pink gem to the center. I added a bow that I made using the bubble gum seam binding.  I also added a baby pink gem to the center of the bow.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and punched it out using a real estate sign punch.  I backed it in bubble gum pink card stock and added 3 baby pink gems under the sentiment.  I also added 3 more baby pink gems to the top corner of the embossed card stock.  I punched 3 mini butterflies out of peach fuzz card stock and added crystal stickles to them.

1st Birthday Card

Wanna have some fun? Over on Facebook Forgotten Scraps is giving away a free custom build train for anyone who wants to have a little fun and help her color up some images.  She will build you a custom train, all you need to do is tell her if you want it for a boy or a girl, the age and how many links (up to 3) that you want.  You can find out more about it by clicking here to go to the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Facebook Page.



I thought this would be lots of fun and I had to get in on this. And I wasn't disappointed. Check out this adorable image that she created for me to use!!  I have actually colored this image up twice since I received it last night.  And I know I'll be coloring it up some more this week.  For my choices for my image I decided on girl age 1 to make a first birthday card for my cousin's granddaughter.  But I do have to say that my image is perfect for either a girl or a boy.



To create my card I started with a brown card base.  I added a piece of bubble gum pink card stock that I backed in white card stock. Then I embossed a piece of light pink card stock using a dot embossing folder. I backed the embossed piece in brown card stock and then added a strip of white card stock that I punched using an eyelet lace border punch to the bottom.  The image is colored using Spectrum Noir Pens. I backed the image and the sentiment in bubble gum pink, brown and white card stock. I added diamond stickles to several areas of the image.

Longing Tilda

I created this thank you card for my daughter's cheering squad to give to their coach. 

 I used the week 1 sketch from Viva La Verve. 

I colored the image Longing Tilda with Spectrum Noir Pens.

 I used light purple, orchid, lily pond (sage green) and white card stock and a lavender floral patterned paper. The embossing is done using a dot embossing folder.  I used two different butterfly punches and an eyelet lace border punch. I cut around the image using scallop scissors.  On the two larger butterflies I added 3 mini purple rhinestones and on all three I added diamond stickles.  I also added more embellishment with 3 light purple gems and a piece of light purple dotted ribbon.  I decided to stamp the sentiment directly onto the card under the image. Here is my finished card.....

Cheerleader Tilda

My daughter is in her 4th year as a Winterport Diamond cheerleader for our town's rec department.   The girls have been working very hard on a routine that they will be performing on Saturday for friends and family. The age range of this group of girls is 2nd through 8th grade.  One of the girls on the squad, Bella (a 2nd grader), just recently got diagnosed with a disorder that affects the strength in her muscles.  And because of this she had to stop cheering. She was very disappointed that she couldn't continue with her sisters. So the coach and the rest of the girls decided to make her the co-coach for the squad. The girls wanted to show Bella how much they appreciate her and how special she is to them so they asked if I would make a card for the squad to sign for her (they will also be giving one to the coach).  Here is what I came up with.....

The Diamonds wear pink and black uniforms with silver pom poms. So I continued this color theme onto the card showcasing Magnolia Stamps' Cheerleader Tilda. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir Pens. To create the sparkle on the pom poms I added silver and diamond stickles.  I also added a "D" to the front of the uniform using silver stickles.

Little Elf Kia


Hi and thanks for visiting.  Today I made a birthday card that I would like to share with you.

The image I used is Little Elf Kia from Aurora Wings.  I colored her up using Spectrum Noir markers.  To create the sky background I tinted around the image using chalk.


The sketch I used is from the current challenge at Sketch Saturday.


To create my card I started with a 5 x 5 pink base.  Then I cut a piece of pale pink card stock slightly smaller than the base and embossed half of it using a dot embossing folder. It is a little hard to see it in this photo but if you look close enough you can see the piece of white floral vellum that I added to the top of the other side.  I added a piece of pink card stock below the vellum and added a white ribbon between the two pieces.  I backed this in white card stock and added it to my card.


I layered a tiny pink paper flower onto a white paper flower and added a light pink gem to the center. I added leaves that I punched out of sage green card stock and branches that I punched out of white card stock.  I punched 3 mini butterflies out of pink card stock and added one to the flower and two to the image.  I also added crystal stickles to the butterflies, white flower and branches.  I stamped the sentiment onto the bottom of the card and added 3 light pink gems above the sentiment and 3 more to the corner of the vellum.
