Another class Tilda

This is another one of the cards I made at my craft class last week & finished off at home. Its another image from the Butterfly Dreams collection, mounted up using papers from Magnolia & are again from Butterfly Dreams set. I used a MS Daisy punch to create the lacy strip mostly hidden under the image mount & added lace from my stash to the bottom. Flowers from my stash & the sentiment is from an Anna Griffin set.

Have Fun Tilda

Last night I went to a Tilda class at Sir Stamp A Lot which is quite near me in Peterborough. twice a month they have an evening class, where we make around 4 cards, all with Magnolias & this time it was with Butterfly Dreams collection. I like to finish my cards at home & add on various other embellishments & here is one of them. All papers are Magnolia, I added a doily, which I coloured with Primrose Promarker, the ribbon, flowers & butterfly charm are from my stash. The jewels, butterfly were provided in the class, as were the Nestie circles. I also used my birthday DooHickey die on the edge of the card under Tildas legs. I added a freebie blog ticket & viola!

Scroll Down!

The scroll is an image from Make It Crafty called Ornate Floral Scroll which I have coloured with Promarkers I tore the edges of the card & inked with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint & mounted onto paper from stash. The ornate design on the paper I painstakingly coloured with a Tan Promarker to match the scroll colour & added 2 corners as well. I decoupaged the scroll & added a pansy which I had cut out of the original backing paper. Quite a traditional card for a change.

Promarker Storage

I know there are lots of people who have already done this as a cheap option for your Promarkers but I finally got around to doing it myself. My son went to Ikea at the weekend & bought this DVD storage for me at £8.14 & I used Paulas blog here for the inspiration & if you ask her nicely she has a Word document already printed for the colour strips to be stuck onto the empty DVD cases.
I still have 26 pens left to buy but now I can see what the colours are quickly & life is easier when colouring.

Flirty Seniors

This is an image I purchased from Make It Crafty, its called Flirty Seniors & I love it. I made the card up for my hubby for our anniversary (yes I know its just gone, but I know he will love it & it can be put Coloured with Prisma pencils in the main, with a few bits where I used Promarkers.. Deliberately left the image quite large, so added a little braid from stash & mounted the image onto card, same  as the base & added 3d foam squares to make it stand out from card. Used a punch to make edges with a small circle punch. Sentiment is an Anna Griffin one. Nice & easy & no flowers!!!!

Who Needs Boys!

Since coming back from holiday, I seemed to have lost my mojo & just hadn't sat down to make any cards apart from my DT card for tomorrow. Anyway yesterday I was commenting & saw this image & it inspired me to make the above card. The image is called Pippy Bug Catcher by Make It Crafty  I coloured her with Promarkers & mounted her with 3d foam squares onto paper I had had in my stash for god knows how long, no idea who or what it came from. The tag is a DooHickey die & I have handwritten the sentiment. Flowers & Ribbon from stash.
