I also used two different circle punches on this! This is for Crafty Cardmakers (fairy & two punches) Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

Once Upon A Springtime

I love that Fairy paper from Graphic darn pretty, and love the colors too! Some pictures of Dorothy, and I wanted them to look very vintage, so I actually printed the first one on a piece of an old page out of book! Think it's cool looking! I really distressed the other two! I distressd all the layers of papers, and did a TON of cut work on this too! Added teo layers of lace, and used my MS punch for white lace around love to do that!! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek at Dorothy! Teresa*

Easter Fun!!!

I wanted this card to resemble a front door, and I hope it does.......wanted the wreath to look like it's hanging on the door! I love that stamped wreath image, very fun to color with distress inks! I also colored my Magnolia with distress inks, and I don't know why, but for some reason I felt she needed those wings added to her! I made a bunch of different sized circles, inked and distressed them, and just put them randomely all over the card, inside and out! Added some lace for Tilda to sit on, and some sparkling letters in lower left circle for the card title! This is for Magnolia Stamp Lovers -pastel colors! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

Happy Birthday....

This card has some Prima papers in it, which are all distressed and layered too! The little stamp on the front ......I think he's so cute! I colored him with distress inks, and the challenge at Make It Colorful asked for gradiants when coloring, so the transition between the green and blue I tried to make flawless, hope it looks that way to you! This is also for Crafty Catz (men), If The Shoe Fits Scrap It (Happy Birthday), Paper Sundaes (masculine colors). Was a fun little card to do, thanks for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

Magnolia Down Under sketch & Totally Tilda Easter!!

Used the sketch at Magnolia Down Under, was a really fun sketch to use! And at Totally Tilda .....early Easter, needed to add Tilda and some Easter eggs of some kind! So I added this cute little basket stamp given to me by a friend! I used my distress inks to color both Tilda and the basket of eggs! I did some cut work on the Webster's pages paper, used my sizzix for background to image, then added that pretty gingham, and there you have it! Hope you enjoy it, and thank you so much for stoppin' by! Teresa*

It took me a couple hours to find it, but I knew somewhere in my stash, I had a piece of paper that looked just like that hutch.....and after much searching......found it !! I used distress inks to color the image, and used my sizzix to make the leaves! I also made the tiny butterfly! Made the lace around perimeter with my MS punch!
