Tilda with Flowers for Friday Sketcher's Challenge

This is my first time doing a Sketch Challenge. This one is from Friday Sketch Challenge and this is my take on it. I used one of the new Fiskars border punches to make the trellis effect. Also used Flowersoft for the flowers in the basket. Used Key Lime and Pink Carnation cardstock from CTMH. Colored Tilda with CTMH markers on watercolor paper and mounted on Nestabilities oval with dimensionals. Added some flowers and pearls to complete it. DP is from DCWV Nana's Nursery.

Tilda on a Fence

I have fallen in love with the Tilda stamps! Used Spring Tilda and the Fence & Summer Background and This card was made coloring Tilda with CTMH markers (copics are on order!!) on watercolor paper and Crystal Blue cardstock from CTMH. The DP is from DCWV Spring Stack. I used the Sizzix A2 embossing folder on the cardstock behind the image. I love these embossing folders, adds texture!

Tilda with Tulips

Got to play some more today with my Tilda Stamps, this one is Tilda with Tulips and Church Window from Magnolia-licious. She was colored with CTMH markers and SU Blender Pen. Card stock is from CTMH for the solid colors and DP is from unknown sources. I also used MS edge punch and sponged Amethyst ink from CTMH to bring out the design. Tilda is mounted on the window with dimensionals.

Tilda with Ladybug...

This card uses a variety of paper sources. For the base I used Key Lime from CTMH, for the DP I used the Spring Stack from DCWV and for the matting I used Orange and Raspberry from CM. Used the Tilda with Ladybug stamp from Magnolia-licious and stamped it on Watercolor paper using CTMH pens to color and SU Blending pen to blend. This shows the outside and inside view.

Simple Thank You Card

This card uses a new medium (at least new to me *Ü*) called Flowersoft. I embossed the cardstock with the cuttlebug embossing folder and Scor Pal and then colored the "leaves" with chalk. Glued on the Flowersoft and added a pink bow. The sentiment is layered with dimensionals to give it more depth.

Joy Forever

This outside part of this card is actually made from an envelope. First you seal the envelope, then cut off the side about 1 1/2 inches. Putting the remaining part of the envelope through a crimper makes it easier to put the "top" on and also gives it texture. Used the Joy Forever stamp set from CTMHJ for the flowers, leaves around the border of the lower part of the card and sponged with Blush stamp pad before it is crimped (this is important otherwise it will be very difficult to stamp on it *Ü*) For the inside panel I just layered the garden green and blush cardstock and printed the sentiment on the computer after I stamped the flowers on the white cardstock...a very simple card!

Welcome Little One...

This card was made using the Cricut Expression and Cuttlebug Paisley embossing A2 folder. The quilt is made by cutting 1 1/2" squares, 2 from 6 different cardstocks and adhereing them to another piece of cardstock and using Accent Essentials to cut the shape out with multi-cut feature. After it was cut out I adhered it to pink cardstock and ran both through the Big Shot to emboss. Made mini tags for the sentiment and added a paper flower and button for accent. For the faux stitching I used CTMH Simpel Stitches stamp set.
