Dragonfly Tilda

Hi everyone...hope you're all having a great night. I'm feeling a little crummy right now...I think my allergies are kicking in..but I wanted to share a couple of cards that I've been meaning to post on here for a while.

I love Dragonfly Tilda...I love anything to do with dragonflys so I fell in love with this Magnolia stamp when I first saw it. I inked the image up with Basic Black Classic Stampin' Pad from SU! and coloured it in with my Stampin' Write markers. The cardstock and ribbon are some of the new In-Colours that SU! has to offer (Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango and Soft Suede) and the patterned paper is also from SU! (Razzleberry Lemonade). I added some pearls, rhinestones, and Stickles to finish off the cards.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards...I'm off to curl up a good book for a while. Have a great night everyone!

Tilda With Sunflower

Hi everyone! After being away sick for about a month and trying to catch up on other things at the beginning of this month, I finally am back with some new cards to share!

I received my Tilda with Sunflower stamp from a Secret Sister swap earlier this summer (I've been wanting this stamp for a while now) and I've been wanting to use it and my new in-colour things from Stampin' Up! since they came out in July (seeing as I was doing little to no crafting for a while there).

I stamped the images with SU! Basic black classic ink pad and coloured them in with my Stampin' Write markers. I went with Crushed Curry or Dusty Durango for the base of the card and layered some paper from the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP on top of it. I ran the same coloured cardstock (Crushed Curry or Dusty Durango) through my Bigshot using the Top Note die and layered more cardstock and the image on top of it. I added some 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (Crushed Curry or Dusty Durango) to the cards and finished them off with some Flowersoft in Autumn.

I actually wasn't too keen on the Dusty Durango colour when I first saw it (I liked Crushed Curry right away) but I'm happy with how the colours went together and how these cards turned out.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations...I'll have some more to share with you soon!!
