Magnolia Challenges!!

This is for three challenges.......Just Magnolia(embossing), Magnolia Down Under(Dots), and Totally Tilda(Hearts)!!!! What a fun little card to make! I took a real close up and side view so hopefully you can see that I actually embossed the "image" itself!! Was scary.....but it turned out pretty cool I think! I used my swiss dots, to go along with the "Dots" theme too!! How fun this was!! I also made the hearts and added them, since this was also part of the theme, and it just all came together! I distressed all the papers, and added lots and lots of layers! Added some pretty lace, some pearls, and my fav punched leaves! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek at my little Tilda!!This is also for the "Delightful Challenge" Hearts! Teresa*

Love is in the air!!!!

This is for the challenge at Make It Crafty......anything but white cardstock!! So, I printed both the "Geeky Love" couple, and the Daffodill image on colored cardstock! I even left that "small" piece of cardstock that's in between the couple to show it was "colored" stock that I used!!! What a fun challenge to do!! It was pretty challenging to color on colored cardstock, but I like how it turned out! I used my distress inks, and I did some paper piecing on their clothes!! I think they look like they just came out of the 50's!! I made the heart on both the front and inside of card.I distressed the papers also! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a look at my "Geeky Love"! Teresa*

Just Magnolia Challenge!

We had a sketch to use over at Just Magnolia, and I loved using it! I colored the hAnglar & sTanglar image with my distress inks. I also used BG papers and did a ton of cut work for the front of the card! I think it turned out very "spring time" like! I love the way the flowers are just hanging in the air around the image! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

I cannot get enough of these gorgeous new digi images.....they are so gosh darn cute, and so much fun to color!
