Saturated Canary Bulliten Board

My school nurse bulliten board for the spring!
I used the Saturated Canary digital images and colored them with Copic markers.
I think I overdosed on buttons! LOL

Graphic 45 French Country Card and Quilling

The papers form Graphic 45 French Country are amazing!!!  These pictures don't show the richness of the colors or the amazing detail of the designs!  I love working with their paper!
I decided to add some quilling to the paper card.  I tried quilling grapes and designed an eiffel tower to the front of the card. 

On the inside, I made a quilled black eyed susan and tried to ink the edges of the petals to give it more of a vintage feel. 

Graphic 45 Secret Garden card

Graphi 45 paper company has come out with some BEAUTIFUL paper!  I love the rich colors and designs they have used.
This is a card I made for someone who recently lost their daughter in a car accident.


Cameo Rose Card

I ventured off of my image stamps into the collage world!
This is the result!

Lili of the Valley stamps are so cute!!!  This one is no exception.

Not really used to working with darker colors but I am trying to expand my colors.  :)

CottageCutz teapot card

I have been enjoying my cottagecutz dies from Scrapping Cottage!  My latest card uses a few of their dies.  If you get a chance, check out their blog and store!  Amazing dies to choose from.
 I love china and roses!  The paper is from K and Company.  The embelishments are from the same line as the paper.  I think it is Brenda Walton paper. 

Sewing card for my sister

Tailor Tilda 
My sister enjoys quilting so I thought this Tilda card would be perfect for her. 
I used my sewing machine to go around all the edges, used various sewing themed embelishments and fabric from my stash.  The image was colored with Tim Holtz Distress markers.
 The inside of the card has a removable tag.  I love the dress form paper clip I found on ebay.

Magnolia Love Card

Seems like a long time since I posted.  I am still here!!!  Just haven't posted any cards.  I have been making quite a few and thought I should start putting them on my blog.
This card I made is my LOVE card.
I used a Magnolia Tilda stamp, handmade my larger roses and small pearl flowers from a punch.  I found the white roses at Micheal's crafts.  I the butterflies were from an ebay purchase and I used the Prima paper for the card.  The image is colored with TH distress inks. I used a glitter pen to highlight parts of the image as well.
