It’s a Butterfly Dreams post!

Some super sweet stamps from Magnolia on my stair step card today!  The latest collection, Butterfly Dreams…they just keep getting cuter!  I also used a few Magnolia Doohickey’s dies… I’ll link to them all in the photos below.

I made this a back panel stair step.  I didn’t take time to search to see if anyone has already done this.  I didn’t like it as tall either so I did some changing.  The pattern paper is from the Webster’s Pages 6×6 pad called Spring Market/Yacht Club.  Some really neat designs in the collection… link below.

Linking up to the Just Magnolia Challenge for this week, they’re celebrating birthdays! It’s HERE!  Linking to the Wee Memories Challenge post, HERE, the challenge is “All Things Adorable”… well, that’d be Tilda and Edwin! : )

Here’s a side view to see the stair step…

And some close ups…

Made ‘ya smile! Thanks for stopping by… links below take you to the products I used when you click on the pictures!  Happy Weekend!

I brought out my Distress Ink  palettes again last night… all inspired after watching Dena’s how to videos, HERE.  Fun, THANK YOU Dena!  I enjoyed it!  I’m linking my card up to the Just Magnolia challenge… this week is “anything goes” and I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop Sketches challenge blog.

I also used the Magnolia Doohickey’s dies, Tilda’s Lace and the mini scallop lace.

The pattern papers are from the new 6×6 MME pad Stella Rose, Hazel.    Elongated Rectangle Nestabilites for the shapes… love them!

Autumn Tilda…

I love this Tilda,  I think she looks rather like a Pilgrim and the little pumpkins are so charming!  I also love the color pencil coloring of Moni HERE,  so today I attempted to get her “look” with copics. hmmmmmm… She does magic with pencils and OMS!!!  I kinda felt like I was creating mud! lol  I’m happy with my brown, brown card though….as long as we don’t put Moni’s beside mine!!!!!!!

I used the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog Sketch for my card and the panel with Tilda on it was perfect for scoring on the left to create a fold.  When you lift the “thank you” tab on the right, the panel comes up… I know…way too easy but that’s all I could do today!!! lol  I always enjoy Dawny P’s sketches! Linking up to Totally Papercrafts Challenge Blog Stampin For the Weekend Challenge Blog, Stampin’ B’s Challenge blog, the themes are Fall.

Here’s a couple more photos of the fold side and then the tab side…

Tilda – Circle Nestabilities – thank you sentiment – I like to edge all the papers and card-stock with Distress ink – Scored with the Martha Stewart scoreboard – Pattern Paper  – Martha Stewart branch edge punch – SEI button – cord from JoAnn’s –  the card is 6×6 in. square.

Happy Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Midsummer Tilda…

Midsummer Tilda is from the Fairytale collection…just love the flowers in her hair and the way it waves.  Fun to color…trying distress ink coloring again…not sure why ‘cept that it’s a challenge! lol  I made this for the Just Magnolia Challenge blog,  a sketch this week. Love the simplicity of it too!

Tilda is stamped with ♥ Versafine Onyx Black ink on ♥ hot press Arches watercolor paper (comes in a big sheet).  Then painted/colored in with ♥ Distress Inks. The papers are from ♥ K&Company… ♥ card-stock is prism and via…the cool paper ribbon is from a pack of ♥ Capella Basic Grey ribbon doilies…pretty cool stuff (purchased it at Archivers).  I put ♥ Martha Stewart ribbon  through the ribbon doily after I inked it good with ♥ walnut stain distress ink.  All the edges of everything are edged with  ♥ Walnut Stain distress ink and the ♥ Ink Blending Tool.  The ovals are die cut with ♥ oval Nestabilities dies. Can’t do words without using the ♥♥♥ Stamp a ma jig,  I ♥ that thing!!!  Tutorial on using it in my post right before this one.  “Thank You is a Hero Arts stamp D4903.

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!  I can say I used some scrapbooking paper today anyway!  And took some pictures!  Doesn’t matter that it was just of a card! lol

Honey Tilda birthday!

Another Easel card…this style really works well for the 6×6 papers and folds up so nice, but most of you already know that because you’ve been making them! lol
The challenge at Just Magnolia blog is an easel card this week…
The challenge at Friday Sketchers blog is the sketch I used….
The Challenge at Cute Card Thursday is anything you like to celebrate each year…birthdays, anniversaries, etc…
The challenge at Saturday Spotlight blog is birthdays and using your birthstone color (mine is aquamarine)….
The challenge at Copic Creations blog is to use your favorite coloring technique from their challenges the last year (mine is coloring black)

Here’s a close up of Honey Tilda sitting on the Honey Jar – so sweet!

Honey Tilda and jar are stamped on 100% cotton Bristol card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers, The warm grays… y11, 15, 17, 19…YR 21, 23, 24… E50, 000, 00, 11…R22, 24, 27, 59.   The copics really blend easily on this stock but oooooh watch out,   they bleed really quick!  Reminds me of the Canson Manga card weight paper pad.   I like it and look how it changes the flesh colors…the ink doesn’t soak in as much either IMO.

I think that’s it!  Happy weekend and stamping!  It’s all pretty here again…covered with snow! lol
