Leo TIlda

Hello crafty friends!
It's Friday and I am totally looking forward to the long weekend ahead!
Today, we have a new challenge at Stamp and Create with Magnolia
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is 


Just as I mentioned in my previous posts, that I am loving CAS cards right now. Simply playing with a few layered borders and just a colored image and minimal embellishments. Here, I have Leo Tilda from the Zodiac Collection.  In this card, I didn't use any embellishments.
I masked out her tail and let her sit on this low fence.  This is one of Magnolias older image. It's a deck with water ripples around which I also masked out.
 I got the idea of putting the sun as her background from Zoe's
colored image of Summer Wedding Tilda.  She did an amazing job! I have managed to make a few, several mistakes (LOL) but I tried to fix it as much as I can. In the end, I decided to leave it as it is, and not add insult to injury.

Copics I used.
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, 0000
Hair: E49, 47, 35, 33, 51
Dress: BG 05, 02, 01, 000
Fence: E49, 29, 27, 25, 23
Grass: G28, YG25, 23, 17, 67 Y19
Sun: Y38, 35, 17, 15, 13
Sky: BG0000, 000

Here's another view where you can see part of the inside of the card.

Before you go, I'm letting you in on a little secret.  Today May 23, is my birthday. Yup, another year older. I didn't want to do any birthday blog candy because I know some followers would just unfollow as soon as the candy ends. For those of you who are still there and stuck with me, thank you so much for being there, for stopping by my blog and leaving me some lovely comments.

All my life, I have never had a surprise birthday party. Not that I'm asking for one! So I thought, maybe it would be fun to turn it around and give you a surprise instead! So instead of showing a picture of my birthday candy,  it will be a surprise birthday candy.  It will be a goody bag filled with crafting goodies that I love. 

All you have to do is leave a comment below. You don't have to post or announce it on your blog.  This is open to all of my followers who read this and to those who will follow and not unfollow when the candy ends. I will randomly choose winners (*hint hint*) from the comments by Sunday night (May 25 12mn EST) and I will be announce and send emails to the winners by Monday!

So if you want a surprise goody bag, just let me know you dropped by! :)

Sneaky Tilda

Happy Monday friends!
 It has been a crazy-busy for me as school is coming to a close and summer vacation is just around the corner.  I'm trying to catch up with my cards and blog post so I don't have to worry about it during the summer. So far, I have made 6 cards for the SCMC so I'm good til the first week of August 
(Yey me!) But I still have a few more cards to make for my "stand by" or reserve file.

So here's another CAS card. Now a days, I'm so hooked into making simple cards with out all the bulkiness of flowers and layered embellishments. Don't get me wrong...I still love making those cards.  I just want to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. Just like how I switch from Copics to Distress Inks...I use them alternately.

Anywhoo...this is Sneaky Tilda from the Animals of the Year Collection. She is one of my faves from this collection. I colored her using Copics. I wanted this card to be flat so it'll be easier to mail.

  Copics used:
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, 0000
Hair: E47, 37, 35, 33, 51
Dress/bow: W5, 3, 1, 00 RV29, 25, 23, 21
Shoes: W7, 5, 3, 1, 0
Grass/Flowers: G28, YG25, 23, 17, 67
Background: BG10 (airbrushed)

Gemini Tilda

Hello fellow crafters and Magnolia lovers!
I have another birthday card for twins to share with you. This is actually for the same little girls who are turning 8 this week. The first set of same cards that I made last week, I have to give their Aunt and this one is for other kids to sign.

I used Gemini Tilda from the Zodiac Collection. And it's the perfect image for twins celebrating their birthday in May. This is one of my favorite images from the Zodiac Collection. First of all, I'm a Gemini. Secondly, this image is not only perfect for twin girls, but for sisters and even best friends.

Colored with Copics and yes, their dresses are pink...again.  It's their favorite color.
The inside of the card, I made 2 pockets and inserts with their names on the back.

The front side of each insert has the happy birthday sentiment 
and the lots of space for the kids to sign.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.I hope to see you again soon!
