Midsummer Tilda

Hi everyone!! Hope that you are all doing well!! I'm on vacation in the Lonestar state this week visiting my boyfriend who's working here, so I am enjoying my time to just relax and recharge myself.

I wanted to share this easel card that I made a few weeks ago with you (I cased it from a card that I made in a card class at the Paper Pickle). I made it for a card mingle in the Magnolia-licious group that I belong to. The theme was "Happy Birthday" as the group just celebrated its 2nd birthday last month.

I stamped Midsummer Tilda with Memento ink in tuxedo black onto some white cardstock that I bought from my LSS, The Paper Pickle ( I can't remember which company makes it but I really like it), and coloured it in with my Stampin' Write markers. The rest of the cardstock and designer paper is from a Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions. To finish off my card, I used my scalloped edge punch from SU! (I really like this punch), some white organza ribbon from SU!, some Stickles and some green pearls.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card! I'm going to get out of the apartment here today and take a walk to the Hobby Lobby that I found when we were driving to pick up our supper last night (I love this store and didn't realize how close I was to one...I'm just going to have to not go crazy shopping there cause I don't want to pay extra for having a heavier suitcase on my flight back home). Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!!

- Sorry that the picture of my card is sideways...I've tried loading it a few times the normal way but it keeps coming out sideways, so I'm not sure what's going on with the Blogger picture loader.

Flying Tilda

Hi everyone!! I can't believe that it's almost been 2 months since I last posted a card...I've just been super busy with other things. I've wanted to share this card for a while but am now only getting a chance to show it off.

I fell in love with this Magnolia stamp (Flying Tilda) as soon as I saw it...I love anything to do with fairies and knew I had to have this stamp!! I can't remember where the butterfly paper came from, but I thought it was perfect for the card. I added some Stickles, sparkly flowers, and rhinestones to add a touch of bling to the card. All in all, I think it turned out pretty cute!!

Sorry for the quick post but I'm off to go and see the movie Eclipse tonight (soooooo excited!!)!! I've heard that it's pretty good and I can't wait to see it!! I'm hoping to have another post for you sometime this weekend with a couple of more cards that I've made, so I will talk to you all later!! Thanks for stopping by to check out my card!!

- For all you Canadians out there, Happy Canada Day!!
