Poppy Tilda

Hello there! 
My card today features Poppy Tilda which is an exclusive from Sir Stampalot. I got this stamp in the mail a few weeks ago and I have colored a few of them. This particular one actually made it to a card. I found some blue Poppies from Wild Orchid Crafts that I had in my stash so I thought I'd use them for this card.

I inked her up with Distress Ink.

Beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

The inside of the card has the same  layout as the front. 
The DP is from American Crafts called Yes, Please!

I hope you like my card for today.
Have a wonderful day!

DBP Easter Egg

Hello my Lovelies!
I hope you are all doing well and getting ready for the weekend.  I have another DooBeePops projects for you today. Easter is just a little over a month away and Easter projects that comes in mind first usually has something to do with eggs and bunnies.
So my project today is an Easter egg ornament ...well half an egg. And I used the Orchid White DooBeePops Honeycomb paper.

 On the back side of the  egg, I used Tilda with Egg and Chicken stamp and inked her up with Distress Ink Reinkers.

I lined the side with lace and pearls and decorated the egg-side with pink and lilac ribbons and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you like my Easter project for today. There are several colors of the DooBeePops Honeycomb paper and I'm sure you will love making projects with them.

Have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Hi there. I hope you all had a nice weekend. My Card for today is a (late) Valentines Card.
I know Valentines Day is over but can it valentines everyday of the year.

Anyway, I used Pink Ribbon Tilda from the With Love Collection. I also used some Magnolia DooHickeys: Swirl, Rose Leaf, Strawberry Leaf and Peony. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the DP is from Magnolia.

DooBeePops and Tilda with Watering Can

Hello Magnolia Friends.
I'm back for another card using the latest DooBeePops Paper from Magnolia.
They sent me a few colors and this is the card I came up with.
I made it simple and matched the colors I have with some paper I had in my stash.

For this card, I used Tilda Watering stamps from the Little Easter Collection and I masked her with Tulip Walkway from the Butterfly Wishes Collection.

 I made some tulips using the DooBeePops paper and I was glad I had some DP that matched the DBP paper I have on hand.

I also made a trim using the DBP paper and lined in across with seam binding. I think it's a nice way to use it the way we use lace or trim.

There are several beautiful colors of this DooBeePops paper and I am sure you are going to enjoy playing with them.

Spring with Butterflies

Hiya, friends! How was your Valentines Day?
 I got flowers and I had a nice dinner with my boys and we had some ice cream before going home. 
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines too.

My card card for today features Tilda with Winding Flowers.  She is not from a spring collection but because of the flowers, I though she would be perfect for a Spring Themed card. For my butterflies, I used Magnolia DooHickey Swirly Butterfly

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've colored her with Distress Ink Reinkers .

The DP is from a Scrap Cake Collection and I also used a paper doily

For the inside, I used a older stamp just for an accent.

I hope you like my card for today.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Tilda with Big Tulips 2

Hello my lovelies!
I have a card to share with you today. I used Tilda with Big Tulips from the With Love Collection which I think is my favorite from that collection.
I colored this image a few weeks ago and here's a closer look.
There is a pull out tag for you sentiment and I left it blank. I used a Stempelglede stamp to decorate the edges of the tag.

Don't you just love seam binding?
Beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you like my card today. I do want to know what you think.
Thanks for visiting me today!

Little Hoppy

Hi Magnolia lovers!
I want to share with you a simple and easy-to-make Easter Card. I have used some stamps from the latest Little Easter Collection ( Little Hoppy with Buttercup and Best Easter Wishes to you Text)
I also used the new DooBeePops paper and I really had fun with them.

To make this simple card, I used plain pastel cardstock. Die cut the edges using DooHickey Tilda Lace die and I also used the DooHickey Grass.

I cut the DooBeePops paper into egg shapes to make my easter eggs.

Here's a closer look at the Easter Eggs. I wanted to make them bigger but I was afraid they would get squished in the mail when I send it to Sweden.  :)

I hope you like my simple card today.

Thanks for dropping by!
Have a nice day!

Drip Drop Tilda with no black lines

I made a little tutorial on how I colored Drip Drop Tilda with Distress Inks and  using the "no-lines" technique. I posted each photo on Facebook as I was coloring.  Now I want to share it with you.
1. After I stamped Drip Drop Tilda on watercolor paper with Adirondack Cloudy Blue ink pad, I outlined my shadows using Weathered Wood. The ground is Shabby Shutters.
2. Tattered Rose for the Skin.

3. I mapped out the hair using Walnut Stain. Then I let it dry.

 4. Lightly blended the ink with a damp brush.

5. I added some more Walnut Stain. Just laid it where I first mapped out the hair. Let it dry.

6. Blend out the 2nd layer of Walnut Stain. Then I started laying a thin line of Vintage Photo on her face and neck. Spun Sugar for her cheeks. After laying the ink, I immediately blended it out while it was still wet.

7.  I outlined her clothes with Victorian Velvet and blended it out right away.

8. I did a 2nd layer of Victorian Velvet and did the same to the lower part of her clothes.
9. Stormy Sky for her boots and I paid 2 layers of ink and did the same technique.

10. Vintage Photo for shadows to her arms and legs. Just  thin line if ink, then blend out before it dries.

11. Scattered Straw for the umbrella and handle.  For the middle part or spine of the umbrella, I used Brushed Corduroy.
12. Finally, I used Vintage Photo DI Markers for her eyes, brows, cheeks and the end of her hair. The raindrops are Weathered Wood.

 These are the brushes I used to color the image.  I also used Arches Hot Press WC Paper 140lbs.

I hope you learn something from me today. There are other ways to color images using the "no-lines" technique. This is just my way of doing it. If you have other ways to color, please do share it with me. I'd love to learn other techniques!
Thank you so much for dropping by!

Tilda with Big Tulips

Hi Magnolia friends!
Spring is just around the corner and for sure we will soon be seeing lots of Spring colors in cards and projects. And to start of with Spring cards, I want to share this one with you

  I used Tilda with Big Tulips and colored her with Distress Ink Reinkers. I inked this stamp a few night ago and I even posted a photo of it in FB. I can say that this is one of my fave stamps because I have inked her up a few times more than the other stamps  that I have.
I inserted a little pocket for the tag.  The tag is a Magnolia DooHickey: Tilda Tag.  The beautiful flowers, leaves and stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
The rest of the embellishments are from my stash: ribbons, lace, charm and twine.
The DP is from Echo Park Spring Time
Here's a closer look
DI Recipe:
Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Spun Sugar
Hair & Shoe: Walnut Stain
Tulips: Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, 
Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky
Clothes: Milled Lavender
Ground: Vintage Photo

The inside of the card has the same sketch as the front. I stamped it with an accent stamp from an old Magnolia Collection. (I totally forgot what collection and I have to look it up! :) )
I hope you like my card today.
Thanks you for dropping by and I really appreciate when you do.

Have a great week end!
