Garden Tilda

Happy Monday,  hope everyone is having a great start to their week.  Mine doesn't really start until tomorrow.  Today is our last day of summer break, it's back to school and work tomorrow. 

This card is from a kit I got a while back from Heather Hobbie Haven.  It's been a while since I colored so I was so happy to get out my inks and water color this cute image.  This truly is my most favorite way to stamp.  I already put this card in the mail to my bestest friend for her birthday.

Here is a close-up of the image I colored.  I added a little dirt and grass to the ground, I love how it turned out.  I have a couple of Halloween cards I am coloring up now.  So hopefully they will be done soon so I can post them for you to see.

Cascading Butterflies

I've seen a lot of cards like this usually done with flowers and I had to give it a try.  I was inspired by my friend Holly and Brandy Cox to make this card. Thank you ladies for the sharing your cards.

I decided to use butterflies on mine.  I wanted to use wisteria wonder so I got out my color coach used the color combo from the wisteria wonder card.  Colors are Wisteria Wonder, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, and Whisper White.  I used the butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set and punched it out with the Elegant butterfly punch and then layered it with the bitty butterfly punch. On the Sahara sand piece I cut the edge with the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The Soft Sky piece is embossed with a retired EF.  I did not realize it was retired until I was typing this post, darn!  I added a piece of 3/4 chevron ribbon in wisteria wonder.  The sentiment is from the Label Love stamp set.

Team Challenge Card

I FREAKIN love you!!!!  I absolutely love this stamp set and I was so excited when we got it for free at convention.  Colors used on this card are Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, and Whisper White.  I embossed the daffodil delight with the heart adorning accents folder.  I stamped the Cherry cobbler piece with a heart stamp from the Make a Cake stamp set. 

This card was for the team challenge at my uplines monthly meeting.  Love doing challenges all the cards are so different.
The heart charm I made using the simply pressed clay.  I colored it with cherry cobbler and daffodil delight ink pads using my aqua painter.  The ribbon is the new Chevron ribbon in chocolate chip.  I used a technique I learned at convention which is to punch a hole in the card stock and thread the ribbon thru the hole and around the CS and then back up thru the hole and tie.  Love this technique no glue need for the ribbon.

Pillow Gift #2

This is the other gift I made for my roommates at convention.  This is a notebook holder with a pocket on the inside.  I got this idea from Brandy Cox.  Colors used are Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, and whisper white.  I stamped the background with the swirly stamp from Everything Eleanor.  I used the largest framelit from the Circle collection to cut out the rich razzleberry and the next largest to cut out the whisper white circle.  The flower and the sentiment is from the Field Flowers. 
On the inside there is a cute little pocket to put whatever you want in.  Well I hope you like it and Thank you for stopping by.  Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.

Pillow gift jars

Wow can you believe it is August already!  In just a few weeks we will be back to school which means I will be back to work, not sure I'm ready for that!  Yikes. 

This is one of the pillow gifts I made for convention.  I used tiny mason jars for this and filled with skittles.  The Tiles are made with the new simply pressed clay.  I just rolled out the clay with my brayer and cut into squares.  I let them dry over night.  I then used my water tank brush and ink pads to color the tops of the tile.  When that dried I stamped a swirly image on the tiles in chocolate chip ink and then stamped a butterfly and a letter on the tiles in stazon ink.  Everybody got a Tile with a butterfly and a tile with there initial on their jar.  I coated the tops of every tile with crystal effects and let dry over night.  Oh yeah I pierced a hole in the tops of the tiles when I first cut them out.  I used one of the circle framelits to cut out paper for both sides of the lid.  The flower on top of the …
