This is my first digi stamp! Verve Stamps offered it free and I thought I should give it a try! I LOVE LOVE LOVE their stamps as you can tell from a lot of my cards! There is just something about a black and white combo that sucks me in..LOL This is an easel card and there is a block to add a personal note behind the fold..
I had colored these little guys and thought... Now what what a little boy be sitting on??? Then it hit me... He would be in the back yard in his tire swing! I punched a circle and then a smaller circle right out of the middle and volia..his tire swing... It was dull so I put a lil bling on it...LOL The tree and grass are Sizzix dies and the *leaves* are scallop punches.... Now if you listen closely you can hear John Anderson singing *Just a Swangin* in the background! (giggle)
I just love this little bookmark! I gave Surfer Edwin a *makeover* into PJ Edwin! I removed his surfboard and tucked his little buddy in behind him to look like he was off to bed... The metal saying at the bottom says *Oh, to be a child again* How true is this??? I have had that huge grommet set for a long time and I thought it would be perfect on this! The stitching on the side is a 3D sticker! I also scented the fibers on the side and the bookmark with fresh linen spray so it smells like clean pjs!
I played with the Copic blender pen and made *dapples* on these 2 dapple gray horses... I can't get over how real these turned out... Dapple gray ponies look just like this...For those who aren't very Horsey.. dapples are lighter rings of color that horses get in their coats during different times of the year,, It looks very pretty.. That blender pen can do wonders!
We went to a retreat this weekend and it got fondly named the *Tilda Crop*! We all had fun and made a bevy of beautiful cards!
I got to play with my new copics all weekend. I must say .. there is a learning curve, but oh my... once you get a little control of the marker..it can do wonderful things! My copics will always be a work in progress...LOL Here are a few af the cards that I got done..... Enjoy!
I had to *Bling* her up this time.. I thought she needed earrings and a pearl necklace and bracelet! She is sporting my favorite color and I think she may have been at the Kentucky Derby with her beautiful hat with tulenetting...:) The Tickled Pink is a rub on from Basic Grey. I used a nestie for her frame and a velvety threading water border for her seat plus a few shiny pink brads... You RAWK Tilda guuuuuuuurl! :)
My pal Claudean sent me some Tilda images to *test drive* LOL Can I say WOW! This is my FIRST Tilda card! I have her peeking through a window made I think, from the cuttlebug pkg.. I fashioned it like a shaker box with foam tape for the height.. The flowers are on the outside.. It has prima flowers, a cuttlebugged panel and some Heidi Swapp bling. It is really sparkly ,IRL. Thanks for looking and I bet there will be lots of Tildas in my future!... KIM
