Latest Work!

May 25, 2009

Well, this was a buys weekend, actually mostly a busy Sunday Morning! Hubby keeps giving me a hard time because I keep doing this "last minute" cards on Sunday just before we have to leave for church! I just don't know when I don't take the time to do this on Monday or Tuesday rather when I have more time too! LOL!! Oh well, that is typical procrastinator me!! ;)

The first card here, Magnolia, "Tilda in Swimsuit" is VERY special to me because it is the very first Magnolia stamp I ever coloured and work with! I just learn about these stamps a few weeks ago, and I am completly in love with them! That girl is just way too cute! I joined the CDN Express Image Swap 2 group over at Splitcoaststampers and that's how I got my first ever Tildas!
I have since then, bought a few of my own and I love them and truly treasure them! The other stamps I am really in-love with right now is Hangler and Stangler, but I haven't chance to get some of those yet, though I did get some images for someone very generous and I am dying to coloured them and use them, so that will be coming later!

Last week I also received a few orders I had placed a while ago, and little by little I hope to be able to use then and case them soon! One of those set was from Papertrey Ink, "Quilter's Sampler" I made a Birthday card with it, but I am not too happy with the colours I used for the blogs! I will have to try something else next time, something that matches the paper better!

And by they way, let's make clear I am just casing some cards I saw over at splitcoststampers and kind of giving them my own twist, so THANK YOU if you were the one who originally created one of this cards! I have just taken the idea and make it my own.

I will post the details, materials, stamps, papers and other stuff used on the making of this cards a bit later! Now I got other staff I need to do, so see you later! ;)

I *love* that card you made with the Quilters Sampler stamp. I've looked at the stamp before and thought I'd be unable to work with it, but I could if I CASEd your idea, LOL! Will have to watch out for your list on the Cdn Express Image Swap now...
