Birgitta Blowing Hearts

Birgitta is the name is this cute lil' image.  She is one of the C.C. Design Stamps that was released Dec 2011. I was aiming for a clean and super simple card.  The DP is from MME So Sophie Graceful and the design for each of the paper is just yummy!  I colored the image with Distress Ink Reinkers and I also used distress inks on the edges of the paper. The sentiment is from AmyR Heart-y Sayings.

Cupcake Birgitta

Hello there! It was a beautiful day here in Chicagoland.  And before this beautiful day ends, I'd like to share a card I made for Sweet Stamping Pixies: Challenge # 3 which is to use your Fave Fairy/Pixie.  Hmm...it was hard to choose only ONE!  So I decided to narrow down my choices and I had to make a draw! LOL And this is the lucky pixie for this challenge!  This is from CC Designs Cupcake Birgitta.  She was one of my first stamps and i just love her.

I colored her with Distress Inks and because I didn't have any stone wall stamp for her to sit on, I just kinda doodled and colored the wall with DIs. All the flowers are from WOC and the DP is Creative Imaginations. The sentiment is from Michael's ($1 bin).

Tilda in Yellow

Hello Friends! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend or whatever is left of it. I just came home from Joann's ( a local crafts store).  They were having 50% off on all their scrapbooking stuff and I just had to go. LOL

For my card today, I used an image from the Summer Memories Collection called Tilda with Magnolia Branch.  I paired this image with the Magnolia Tree and a bench. I colored it with Distress Ink Reinkers and Markers. The sketch is from TOMIC #50 Challenge. I had to be a bit minimalist with this card and limit my embellishment so the sketch can be seen. I was sooooo tempted to put some more rolled-up flowers...I had to restrain myself! LOL!!!  My image was way too big and I had to figure out a way to layer the papers based on the sketch. I know it's a bit plain and simple...but, I hope you like it.  :)

 For the inside of the card, I used the same sketch with only a stamped image of the Magnolia tree.

 My hand made flower using a roll up flower die from MFT Die-namics.
Aside from the TOMIC #50 Challenge, I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
