Tilda with flowers

Hi everyone...hope that you are all doing well! Thanks for all your kind words in regards to my means so much to me!

I just wanted to quickly share a card with you today (I'm off to a family bbq at my mom's house in less than 30 minutes). I received this Magnolia stamp in the mail not too long ago and it was just begging to be inked up. I inked it up with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured it in with my Tombows. The cardstock, patterned paper, and organza ribbon is all from SU! (Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss, and Raspberry Tart). I added some white flowers and a pink flower (Imaginisce and Bo Bunny) and finished them off with some gems and a button (Basic Grey). I finished off the card by popping up the image and tracing around it with a glitter gelly roll pen.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation! Have a great Sunday everyone!

Birthday card

Hi everyone...hope you're having a great weekend so far!! My weekend is going ok so far...I'm feeling a bit sad today cause I found out that my Great Uncle Nick passed away last night (he had Alzheimer's and had hurt his hip really badly not too long ago). I think I'm feeling most sad that I'm not going to be able to make it to the funeral to say goodbye (it's about a 6-7 hour drive away and I'm not going to be able to get the time off work)but I know he's in a better place and he's not in pain anymore. RIP Uncle will be missed!

The card that I'm going to share with you today is a birthday card for my boyfriend's mom (her birthday is today and the party starts in 5 1/2 hours). I inked up Cakeabella and the happy birthday sentiment with versafine ink in onyx black and embossed them with sparkle detail powder. I coloured in the image with my Tombows and added some glitter to the cake for the icing. I used my classic and scalloped rectangle nestabilties and double ended tag nestabilities in my cuttlebug on Whisper White and Certainly Celery cardstock from SU!. The flowers are from Bo Bunny (I just bought them this past Monday when I was in the States from Archiver's) and the flower brad and patterned paper came from a card kit that I purchased from Scrapping Great Deals. I'm pretty happy with how the card turned out and I hope she enjoys it!

Anyways, I'm off to do a couple of errands and get ready before I head over to my bf's parents house to help them finish getting ready for the party. Have a great Saturday everyone!

Happy Sunday!!

Hi everyone!! Hope you are all having a great weekend and happy mother's day to all you mom's out there!! I've been meaning to post these two cards all week but I got busy and the week just seemed to disappear .

For my first card, I inked up an image from Stamping Bella's line of Ketto's (Tatiana Ketto). I love the Ketto line...I think each image is so different that everyone out there can find one that they can call their favourite (and this one happens to be one of my favourites). So, I inked up the image with Versafine ink in onyx black and embossed it with clear detail powder. I coloured it in with tombows and copics and added some glitter with a gelly roll pen. I used my labels 1 nestabilities on SU! cardstock (whisper white and only orange) and added some Basic Grey Marrakech paper to the only orange cardstock base. I finished off the card with some Prima flowers and a sparkly brad. When I first finished the card, I kept thinking that it was missing something but the more I look at the picture, the more I'm happy with how the card turned out.

My second card is a birthday card that I made for my step-dad's birthday. I inked up Happy Chef from The Greeting Farm, embossed it with sparkle detail powder, and coloured it in with tombows.I used my labels 2 nestabilites on SU! cardstock (whisper white and kraft) and also used some Parisian Breeze Speciality designer series paper from SU! (love it). I added some pop dots to the chef's hat and the cake, which I also added some liquid applique to. The ribbon is from SU! too but I'm not sure which one it is as I got it in a bundle.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations...I'm off to a bbq in honour of mother's day and my bf's cousins birthday. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
