Sketch, ribbon, stitching, swirls,dots, & flowers!

This is for a few challenges! Magnolia Mania(sketch & ribbon), Magnolia Down Under(stitching & swirls), Creative Stamp Friends(dots). I made some of the "rolled" flowers that seem to be everywhere in card blogland! They are quite fun, and very to see what they will look like using the different papers! I distressed all the papers, did stitching on all the paper, added the swirls from my sizzix, added some pretty little pearls, some pretty corners from Melissa Frances, and some pretty ribbon! Colored Tilda with distress inks too! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

Purple and tons of flowers!

Wow, I don't normally use the color purple or lavender, but this paper that I won from Denise is just so gorgeous, of course I had to use it! I distressed all the layers of paper, added some punched leaves, did some fussy cutting, made the heart, added some lavender lace and ric-rac, and also did some paper piecing on Tilda's dress! I also added some bling(pearls), and topped it off with some pretty ribbon and flowers! This is for Paper Sundaes(all 4- purple, gems,wings, paper piecing), Deep Ocean Challenge(flowers everywhere!).Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' apeek! Teresa*

Summer............jumping rope!!

Sorry there's so many pics, but I wanted you to see the "open" area to this card! I hung Tilda in the middle of opening with wire! I made both of the big flowers, the one at the bottom with button is made out of material! I also distressed all the papers, added some gauze, and punched out the fence with my MS punch! If you look at the picture where the card is folded up, it's really cool how the fence just drops down into card, and adds a really cool effect to the closed card! I used one of my older Tilda's, she's jumping rope, which screams summer to me!! This is my first post with the new challenge blog...."Official Magnolia Inspiration!"(summer is the theme), also for Just Magnolia(butterflies). Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek!(oh, my inspiration for this card came from another card maker, and for the life of me cannot remember her name...sorry!) Teresa*

Acetate over opening of card!

This was an interesting card to do! Over at Magnolia Down Under, our challenge was to use I cut the middle out of my card, put it in the middle to cover Tilda in the background! On the side veiw images, you can see the reflection of the flowers in the acetate! I punched all those smaller flowers, paper pieced Tilda's dress and socks, distressed all the papers, and added stickles to the hinges! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin a peek! Teresa*

These tags were so much fun to make! I used colors that I don't normally use too! I also used my Copics to color Tilda, and I haven't used them in quite sometime! I made the back of flowers out of some burlap, and colored the small flower inside with distress inks! I also embossed the patterned paper with "dots" using my Sizzix!This is for Totally Tilda(3 tags), and Magnolia Stamp Lovers(Dry Embossing). Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

This is for a few challenges! Just Magnolia (friends), Magnolia Down Under(sketch), The Shabby Tea Room (2-4-6). I love this style of card, think it's a very pretty design for cards! I also love pink, and used it on this card! I also used the sketch at Magnolia Down Under, but added a little twist to it! Hope you like it! I colored Tilda and her Rabbit with my distress inks, distressed all the papers,used a rub on for title, added a pretty flower,some pearls & buttons for bling, and made the big bow! Was a fun little card to make! I think it has in some places 7 layers!Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*
