Wine Tasting Tilda

I must tell you how happy I was to find out that Tilda drinks wine!!  Now there's a gal I could be friends with!  LMBO!!!  So I paired her up with those gorgeous papers from Lemoncraft "House of Roses".  Oh AND there's some new corresponding pieces in the shop to match these papers like vintage tags, ephemera and self-adhesive rose buttons.  I like the dies I've used for this card from Joy - peeking out from behind the leaves is the "oval decorative floral frame" and right behind Tilda is the "graceful oval die".

Aren't these foamiran flowers gorgeous?  It's the only thing I actually use my iron for!!  LOL!  I very seldom buy clothes that require ironing!  HA HA HA!!  I used an "Alexis" button for the center.  So pretty and sparkly!!!

I even made some gorgeous leaves using the foamiran as well.  I've used the butterflies from one of the new Marianne dies - Butterfly border and added a Tim Holtz nib in the center, added a wax cord bow to the straws and VOILA!

Another spring card - ahhhhhh makes me feel so much better.  LOL!!  
Enjoy your weekend when it gets here and thanks for stopping by!

Precious Present

Not to say I am tired of winter....ok wait...I am!!!  LOL!!  I still enjoy doing winter cards but that's IT!!!  Only winter on cards so time for something springy this week.  I'm using the Dutch Doobadoo's flag shape art and a Whimsy image "Precious Present" from around Christmas time.  I thought she would be cute any time of year tho.

I was so excited to finally use my gold colored straws on this card so I draped some flowers and a bunch of moss around them.  Then I popped up a cute butterfly from Pion's "Scent of Lavender" papers.  The sentiment was also from the same collection.

Here I've made a Foamiran flower, colored the center using yellow ink, added some stamens and popped a pretty button on top.  Oh and I luuuuuuv those gorgeous metal leaves!  Wow can you ever bend them!!  They are somewhat fragile but easy to give them shape.

There's my make for this week!  So wonderful that the weekend is right around the corner and because we had a statutory holiday on Monday, it came even quicker!  Again, I hope you get some crafty time and thank you so much for stopping by!

Miss Frosty

This card was a lot of fun to make!!!  I had my LemonCraft "Gossamer Blue" papers for quite some time before I finally had a chance to use them.  Oh are they ever versatile!  Love them!  I can see many more cards coming using this paper pad!  And check out that gorgeous white "Rosy Leaf" lace OH MY!!  😲

I've made a few flowers using some blue Foamiran, dabbed the center with some yellow ink, popped in some stamens and then brushed them first with gesso and sprinkled some diamond dust over top.  Actually I did that with the birch hearts and Rosy Owl leaf die as well.  OH and the Marianne doily die?  GASP!!!  Need I say more?  LOL!

This little image is Whimsy's "Miss Frosty" who I colored up with Copics.  I added some glossy accents to the berries and some more diamond dust to some of the snow.  

Another close up of a Foamiran flower with the gesso and glitter.

New to the shop this winter was the cinnamon sticks and fir springs.  Ok, those are FUN!  Again I painted on some gesso and then sprinkled with diamond dust.

You would think I may be tired of winter cards but nope!  I am tired of winter tho and WOW have we gotten our fair share here this year.  AND MORE!!  Enough I say!  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!
