NEW Basic Grey & Tilda!


Happy weekend!    I was so excited to receive the new Basic Grey papers ~ Olivia and Oliver that I just HAD to make a card!   This  brand new gorgeous Tilda was just waiting to see some ink too.    She’s called Tilda with Veil and she is part of the Magnolia Wedding Collection.    All these adorable stamps are available for pre-order at 7 Kids College Fund ~ You really should take a peek at the whole collection ~ they’re cuter than ever! 



As I mentioned I HAD to use these new GORGEOUS papers.   The paper for this card is from the Olivia 6×6 paper pad . . .  all I can say is VERY COOL paper!!    I love each sheet!    Both collections are now in stock and available at 7KCF.

My main mat has been cut with one of the new Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix dies called Movers & Shapers ~ Styled Labels ~ the perfect size for Tilda!   I also added some flourishes cut with another Tim Holtz die ~ Elegant Flourishes ~ using a coordinating green patterned paper also from Olivia.   Did you know these dies work with your Cuttlebug??   Yes, they do!   And, very easily too.

I had fun with this and used some white tulle for the veil on Tilda and across the center of the card, along with some velvet coral ribbon and flowers from my stash.   Tilda was colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals.   

Hope you’re having a GREAT weekend ~ it’s so hard to believe it’s the last weekend of June already!   Thanks for stopping by today.

Phindy’s Place Challenge ~ 3D


Happy Friday!   Time for a new challenge at Phindy’s Place.  This week our challenge is 3D.   I thought it would be fun to make a 3D chalk holder for my granddaughter.  I was happy to find these deep colored chalks on sale at Target awhile ago and have also had this Short Pail from Stampendous just waiting to be filled!  

I also thought this cutie would be a perfect image to match the chalk ~  She’s called Hopscotch and is available for immediate download at Phindy’s store.   She’s been colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals.  The chalk lines on her hopscotch were added with Prismacolor pencils over the Copic coloring.  




The papers used are by Sassafras, called Nerdy Bird – tea for two ~ It’s actually the other side of the paper I used earlier this week for this card;  I thought the bright colors would match the chalk colors pretty well.   Added a few ribbons to match and that’s it! 



Be sure to hop over the Phindy’s Place Challenge blog to take a peek at the always awesome projects from Phindy’s Design Team and hopefully you will be inspired to join us!  

While I was outside taking photos of the chalk holder, I took a couple of some of my favorite very cool flowers in our garden to share with you.   They’re called Bees Balm and just starting to bloom.   They’ve actually spread so quickly and have completely filled in this section of the garden!  



Thanks for stopping by today.   Hope you have a great weekend!
