Well, my time off in the summer is over and we are back at school. I always have a really hard time getting back on schedule and forget how tired I get. I just crash when I get home. It will get better but it certainly put a kink in my creativeness this last week. I made up for it Saturday at Scrapbook Creations this weekend and though I never get as much done as I hope, it was great spending time visiting with friends.
I used one of the few Magnolia stamps I recently purchased and I had actually colored and cut out this cutie earlier while waiting on my daughter during her freshman college orientation. Can you believe my youngest has now started college? Ok, back to the card before the tears start up. This card has a cream base and I used my Cheery Lynn Designs’ Lattice 2 die over the background design paper. I cut out a section on the right side to place my framed image.
I colored Tilda with Tombows and added her to the card with pop dots. I added a variety of flowers to the “trellis”. I used two different sizes of flower punches to punch out some of the floral design from the background paper. I sponged the edges with ink and shaped them with a large tip embossing tool. This is a great way to make flowers that coordinate with your card. I used the smallest ones to create a bouquet with a little bow for Tilda and then mixed the rest in with three different paper flowers and two lace flowers that I made. I added brads, pearls and a buttons, along with some glitter. I cut out a butterfly with one of my new Cheery Lynn Designs’ butterfly dies and popped it on top of the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and watch for more creations later this week.
