Little Bunny Tilda and Tilda with Tulips Tent Card

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a new week.  This will be a short post because I can't type much as I'm having problems with my right hand so I also apologize if I'm not visiting and leaving comments on your blogs.  Things should be getting better, soon I hope.  Anyway, the card I made below is for my OCS (one card share) partner, Jodi.  You all know Jodi of Inked Inspirations.  I was so happy that Teri, who hosts the monthly OCS, paired me with Jodi.  Well, I was very nervous at first because Jodi is so talented and known worldwide with all her DT work!  But I was happy because I get to have one of her personally created cards! I know she received it already so it's okay to post it.

I got these stamps from Diana of Magnolia-licious and you can find alot of the Magnolia stamps here.  If you can't find what you want, email Diana and let her know what you're looking for.  Many times, the stamps fly out the door as soon as she posts them to the store but Diana would be happy to reorder them for you.  Diana ships orders out very promptly so I had to ink them up as soon as I got them, and lucky thing!
Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me your encouraging comments.  I wish you all a wonderful week and a Happy Easter if I don't get to post again before then.

Mini Easter Baskets

Happy (Aloha!) Friday, Everyone!  Aren't you glad the weekend is here?  I want to share some cute little Easter baskets I made to put some Easter treats in for some gals I'll be seeing at a craft get-together.  I think it's safe since they'll soon get it.  They are empty now because I didn't want to fill them too early and have the chocolate melt.  Anyway, here they are:
This is looking straight on.  I used (again) DP from MME Quite Contrary-Little Miss Muffet "Hello Beautiful" Little Flowers Paper.  After cutting the pieces on the basket, I distressed each strip with TH's Frayed Burlap to give it a little dimension before adhering them to form the basket.
I punched out those brown bunnies with MS bunny punch in two directions and put one each on either side of the basket.
I also used a MS Floral Band punch and punched both sides of the strip on the handle.
The next pic shows looking down at the basket.  As you can see, the DP is double sided to it looks nice on the inside also.
For the little punched out bunnies, I used some Pastel Rasberry Liquid Pearls for the eyes (just a dot) and also White Opal Liquid Pears for the bunny's tail.
It will definitely look better once the baskets are filled with little goodies and some Easter grass!
Lastly, here's a "group" picture of the little baskets.  I hope the gals like it as much as I had fun making them.
These would be cute of any occasion just by changing the theme.
Okay, I know there are some of you who want to make these cuties, and you can find the details below.

I found the instructions for these cuties here and thank Dawn for her wonderful instructions.  I always enjoy seeing what she will come up with next.  Thank you, Dawn!
And thank you all for stopping by today.  I wish you all a wonderful weekend and happy crafting.

Unwrapped Tilda Thank You Card

Happy Tuesday going on Wednesday, Everyone!  Hope your week is coming along fine.  I'm so behind in my social obligations (thank-you's etc.) and it's just a vicious cycle for me right now.  I try to tackle one thing and something else comes up.  C'est La Vie!  Enough ramblings and on to my card.
I won Joy's birthday blog candy last month and have been working on this card on and off as time permitted. Joy,  A Place To Be Me, loves the color purple and for some reason, DPs in purple is the hardest to find!  Go figure!  So this is what I ended up with:
My card base is 5.5" square and I used Bazzill in a deep purple.  There was no ID on the DP so I don't know who makes it.  I used Unwrapped Tilda from the Winter collection and I find that this image can be used for so many occasions where a gift is concerned.  It reminded me of when I received a box full of wonderful goodies! You can purchase alot of the Magnolia stamps here.  If you don't see what you want, it may be out of stock so just email Diana and let her know what you are looking for.  The sentiment is computer generated and I punched it out with my SU! word window punch and distressed the edges with Memento Lulu Lavender.  The butterfly is punched three times: the base in Bazzill, the DP, and SU! vellum CS then embossed with my Cuttlebug Love Language embossing folder. Here's the recipe for the rest of the card without boring you with all the details.
Copics:  Dress and socks: BV04 02 01 00; Box: E71 70; Hair: E25 99 YR24; Shadow: C2
Punches:  Punch Bunch fern and leaf; SU! Butterfly and Word Window
Other:  Cuttlebug antique corners; Love Language embossing folder
Thank you for stopping by today and until the next time...happy crafting!

Sweet Tilda Tent Card

Happy Sunday going on Monday, Everyone!  Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are ready for a full week ahead! I had a chance to make a Tent Card for the Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge for week 45.  The tutorial is done by the lovely Dena and you can read all the details here.
We didn't have much sunshine today where I live.  It's been rather gloomy with showers off and on all day, for the last 4-5 days.  Excuses!  (sigh!) But this was the best pic I could get this afternoon so I apologize. 
Although Dena's instructions were for a 6"x6" square card, I made mine 5.5" x 5.5" square so I can put it in my envelope I have on hand.
Stamp:  Magnolia Sweet Tilda
CS: Bazzill, PTI Select White (for image)
DP:  The Girls' Paperie
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics:  Dress:  Y08 Y11 RV11 RV10; Hair: E29 E25 E34; Shoes: E37 E34
Other:  Sizzix Sizlits Heart Lace border die
Nesties Curved Rectangles

Here is a side view of my tent card:

You can get all your Magnolia stamps here.  If you don't see it, it may be out of stock but you can send Diana an email and ask her to order it for you.  In the meantime, I'm sure you'll find many other images you'd want to get! 
Thank you very much for stopping by and I wish you all a very pleasant week.

Sweet Tilda Goodie Box

Happy Saturday Everyone!  I'm sure you are all enjoying the start of your weekend.  Here is another heart fold card I made, but this time, I attached to a little box I made to fit the size of the card. Actually I was going to make a bag and put handles on, but because I am planning to mail this, the handle would be crushed or mangled so I opted to leave it as a box.  It's very simple, but here it is:
I decided to (finally) use my Nesties "Blossom Two" die that Sweet Tilda is popped on with foam tape.  I stamped Sweet Tilda with Memento black tuxedo on PTI cardstock, and colored her with Copics.  I punched some small flowers with my retro flower punch and layered that between the prima flowers to bring back the background DP. 
CS:  Bazzill, PTI aqua mist
DP: MME Little Miss Muffet "Hello Beautiful" Little Flowers Paper (phew! but that's the name!)
Copics:  Dress & Socks:  BG72 B52 BG10 R81 R83 R85; Shoes: E99 E35; Hair: E99 E35 Y08;
Others:  Nesties Blossom Two; SU border punch, EK Success small retro flower punch, Prima flowers, Punch Bunch leaves punch
Thank you for stopping by today, and enjoy your weekend.
