Tilda with Flower Jeans - Spring Equinox



Happy Saturday going on Sunday Everyone! I made a standard A2 size card today. I was "spring cleaning" and came across some old CTMH papers and stamps so I thought I'd use this. The base CS is CTMH Petal with CTMH Paper Garden DP. I first die-cut one of the designs with my Sizzix Bigz Clear Square Scallop die, then, using a rectangle of 4" x 3.5" of another DP from the pack, I used my MS border punch on both ends and folded it over just above the bottom border so two sides would show since it's double-sided. This gives a nice contrast using the same DP, like a layered look. I did a vellum overlay and stamped a sentiment from the CTMH Spring Equinox stamp set and attached it to the scallop square to soften the print a little. Here is "Tilda with Flower Jeans" sitting on a band of purple ribbon popped up on foam tape. I colored her with Copics and added some Star Dust Stickles to her wings. Next I added a green flourish using my Sizzix Flowers, Vine & Flourish set dies and popped my Prima flowers on top.

The inside has the same DP and you can see how vibrant the colors are vs. the front with the vellum overlay. On the "message" area, I cut a piece of DP 4" x 7" and used my MS border punch again on both ends this time, and folded over each end to create a semi framed writing area. I used Hero Arts half pearls on both of the Prima flowers. That's it! Thank you for stopping by and hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Tomorrow is the last day of May and can't believe it will soon be mid-year! Time is flying by too fast for me, and yet when I'm crafting, there's just not enough hours in the day. Can't figure that out yet LOL! So, enjoy your last day of May tomorrow and I hope see you again in June!

Hey Cami! Everytime I visit your site, I want to color my Tilda images. Seriously. I stopped by last night and after visiting you site, I went and colored a few Tilda images. LOL!

YOur card is gorgeous as always. You really have a way of using such beautiful dps along with your cute images. Beautiful job with your coloring and your color choices too!! Keep up the beautiful work!!

Yup, it's mid year and it's almost Christmas again. My husband thinks I'm hilarious when I say that. He always respond with "why do you always say it's almost Christmas?. . there,s 8 more months " LOL! I've been saying it since April. . .it's like I gauge the calendar based on how many more months before Christmas. I love Christmas so I love the thought of being closer to that time! LOL!
