Kendall's 5th Birthday

Hello Again!  I'm so glad you could stop by!  :D

I have for you today, the card I made for my niece Kendall.  This adorable Magnolia stamp is from their latest release.  This is Tilda With Kneesocks from the Sakura collection, due to be available very soon.  I've colored her with Copic Markers and accented with Distress Inks.

I've used two of the dies from the latest DooHickey Club release.  This beautiful cake on the stand and the bunting are both from the club Volume #5.  I knew the kit would be great because they always are but this one really blew me over with this gorgeous cake.

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, R20  Hair: E50, YR21, YR24, E99  Dress: RV00, R81, R83, R85, R89  Shoes: E31, E34, E37

Distress Iks: Tumbled Glass, Bintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Tattered Rose

A complete supplies list is at the bottom of this post.

Thank You for visiting today!  I hope you have a great day and better tomorrows!

Say AH!

Hello Dear Readers!  I hope you're having a great day and your weekend is off to a good start.

I made this for my friend who recently had surgery.  I thought it would cheer her up and since it's filled with chocolate, how could it not?

This is Nurse Tilda from the Magnolia 2011 Winner Takes It All collection.  I just love her!  I used a "no lines" technique to color and did this by taking my inked image and stamping on a scrap piece of paper and then stamping again on my blending card so that the image was very light.

Here is the right side where you can see the tongue depressor and some flower details.

Moving along to the back, I added this cute little band aid made with a strip of tan cardstock, a corner rounder, heart punch and an embossing folder.

Coming back around toward the front you can see the start of the phrase Thinking About You.

Copic Markers Used:  Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, Clothes: B0000, B000, B00, B02, B04, N0, N2, N4  Red Crosses: R22, R24  Bottle: BG0000, BG13, BG49

This bottle was big enough for an entire 12 oz bag of Hershey's Kisses to fit inside (minus two).  :D  It's actually an up-cycled bottle from my dog's glucosamine chews.  More of what I used for this project is listed at the bottom of this post.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment (I really do appreciate them).  I hope you have a great day and better tomorrows.

Hello My Lovely Friends and Card Making Enthusiasts!  I'm so glad you stopped by!


May 10th is Mother's Day here in the states.  There is no designated date for this special occasion except that it is always the second Sunday in May.

My mom loves her yard and this time of year she is always outside planting something; vegetables, flowers, bushes...  She takes great pride in her efforts and she truly does have the prettiest yard in her neighborhood.  So her Mother's Day card is always garden themed.

This is Strawberry Yummy Tilda from the Magnolia 2011 Sweet Rainbow collection colored up with Copic Markers and accented with Distress Inks.

I've seen these adorable surprise boxes all over the internet lately and decided to give one a try.  I had to make several of these because it took a while to figure out the dimensions to accommodate my image and still fit into a regular envelope.  The post office seems to frown upon square envelopes and so I wanted this to fit into a 5 x 7.

Here is the back side of the card where I later wrote mom a little note.

Here is the card almost flattened out.

I used some brands and pearls which made it a little thick but it still fit into the envelope nicely.

Copic Markers - Face: E0000, E000, E00, R20  Hair: E33, E35, E37, E50  Outfit: YG91, YG95, YG97, E43, E44, E47  Basket: E21, E23, E25, E27, E29  Strawberries: R01, R20, R22, R24, R29, R56, RV34, G24, G28, YG11, YG91
Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Stormy Sky, Aged Mahogany

Thank You so much for taking the time to stop by.  I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Have a great day and better tomorrows

♥ Laura C.
