Two Tildas for a Two Card Swap

Happy Monday Everyone! Well, Monday is almost over here in Hawaii and already Tuesday in other parts of the world! I would like to share with you two cards I made for a two-card-swap we'll be having at Denise's Play Date this Sunday! (Sorry, it's a long post!)

This is (I think!) Strawberry Tilda from the Lazy Days of Summer Collection. I started out with a top folded 4.25" x 11" Bazzill pink CS, folded it in half, then used my MS doily punch to trim the front by lining up the fold line to the edge of the punch (you know, it looks like 3" wide and is the center of the punch). This takes away about 1/4" on each side.
I used this really cute new (to me!) DP from Best Creation Inc. that I got from one of our LSS. It has epoxy and glitter over some of the leaves and flowers and is so pretty IRL.
I stamped Tilda with Memento Black Tuxedo on PTI white CS and colored with Copics. Then I used my Signo Uniball white gel pen and added all those dots. I matted the image on SU! Melon Mambo that I just love! I adhered her with foam tape

Here is a side view and the card opened. I stamped the flowers from the Summer collection, cut them out and adhered them to the "message" piece.
This is my second swap card with Sunflower Tilda. I used all SU! papers: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry CS, and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP.

I stamped Tilda with Memento Black Tuxedo on PTI white CS and colored her with Copics. I won't bore you with all the details, but the inside of the card is shown below.









I'm an amateur photographer so don't mind the pics. I don't know what happened here, but the colors came out waaaaaaaayyyyy darker than IRL. The card above these show a truer color.
I saw a card by Linda Cummings on the Magnolia-licious gallery and she was most gracious in sharing the directions with me. Thank you, Linda!
Thank you for stopping by and I appreciate all your sweet comments. They keep me inspired as well as everything I learn from all of you crafters out there who share your know-hows. It is very much appreciated and I think crafters are the most giving souls around. We love to make things and share things, and give things. Bless all of you for having such a generous heart. Have a great week, and I'll be stopping by to visit you also.
P.S. Relatives from Japan are arriving tomorrow (for a week) so I may be quiet for a while (sigh!).
