I colored Tilda with my copics to match the colors on the papers. I had a pink feather in my stash that I have had for quite awhile, this was the last one. The color is a perfect compliment to the lady bug paper. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the circle that Tilda is standing on and then mounted it on green and pink paper.
I finished the inside using the same papers and mounted a second stamp of Tilda.
I love Sarah Kay stamps, they are just so heart warming and fun to color.
I colored them with my copics and used some papers from my stash that I have had for awhile, not really sure of the brand but they work for the Stampavie challenge. I used two different papers for the background and then alternated them for the two strips of paper that the image is mounted on. I used gem brads for each corner and in the lower left corner added some flowers.
The inside of the card is finished in the same manner as the front.
The DP are from DCWV and are called Nana's Kids. The papers are all embossed and have glitter imbedded in them. I sat Baby Alvin at the bottom of the matted center and then added the word congrats cut with my Cricut. I added glitter so that it would stand out.
I colored Alvin using my copics.
I finished the inside using the same papers and matted Alvins head from a second stamp.
The sketch is from Our Creative Corner and One Stop Craft and Our Creative Corner called for male cards.
I used Edwin sitting on a fence for this card. I colored him using my Copics and used browns and fishing lures for the background of this card.

I belong to the Magnolia-licious yahoo group and there are events that occur every month. Making a card, or project, and sending it to someone is what the mingle is all about. May's theme is April Showers bring May flowers.
I made a gate fold card and placed a Tilda image on the front. She is from the Spring collection. I made her holding an umbrella that I cut from Hello Kitty Cricut cart. I cut out April Showers using the Doodletype Cricut cart and then placed a few flowers on the outside.
On the inside I used another Tilda that originally had a ladybug in her hand but I replaced it with a bouquet of flowers. Also, when the gate fold card is completely open the words showers and flowers are still readable.

My time to craft's challenge is Love and Marriage, Copics colour challenge is b14, r27 and Y08. I didn't have b14 but found a comparable in b00 and bg10. This is my first time entering the Copics challenge so I hope my interpretation is correct about not having to use the exact color. ABC is for orderly and my flowers are in opposite corners of the card and Edwin and Tilda are in the center.
I colored Tilda and Edwin with these Copics.
I used an ecru scalloped lace for above and below the designer papers from My Minds Eye.
I cut a large heart from my Storybook Cricut cart and centered the two lovebirds on it. I added to dimension to them so they stand out better.
The inside has a cut out glittered heart that says I love you.
I added a little pink flower in the upper corner. I cut circles from the background paper and added some gems to the center. My sentiment is My Sweet Friend which is tied on with a ribbon. I used a punch for the border.
I added some gems in the upper and lower corners on the inside of the card along with a couple of streams of ribbon.

I made a 6 x 6 card that expands to 12" (not sure what you call this one). The papers I used have greens, browns and a splash of blue. I used the sentiment of Butterfly Kisses. They are layered and cut on my Cricut at 1/2" using the Tear Drop cart. The bottom color is olive green and the top is ecru.

The first card is 6 x 6 and modeled after a card on Lena Katrine's blog. Her cards are so awesome and inspiring, they are just gorgeous. Go check out her blog here. I used Elisabeth Bell's Pen Pal for the image on the card. The colors are a light yellow, lavendar's and a purple. I colored them using my Copics (now have a full set -- hurray!!). I used some flowers, ribbon and buttons to embellish the card. I also added some glitter to a few parts of the stamp.
