~* Shabby Chic Card using Sherri Baldy's My Bestie Digi Image *~

Hope you're all have a wonderful weekend so far!  I am!
Here is a card that I made with a digi that I just purchased yesterday from Sherri Baldy.  Isn't she adorable???  I used the DCWV The Primrose paper stack from my friend Vicki and tons of trims and laces from The Piece By Piece.  Love her silk ribbons and laces and trims (lace with tulle underneath and the pink tulle).  I made small flowers from the outside portion of the rosettes.  I also used a clay heart I made with my Martha Stewart mold and distressed it with Tattered Rose Distress Ink, heart bead, bling, crystal sprays from my friend Linda, trinket pearls that I knotted, and a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and pearl embellishments.
I am entering this card into the following:

~* Shabby Chic Tilda Shadow Box *~

Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas out there :)!
Here is a shadow box that I made using the adorable "Butterfly Wishes Collection - Tilda With Hawaii Flower".  I had some mojo last night to create this project.  Loved being able to go into my crafty closets and pull out product that I haven't used in awhile...mainly laces and some vintage laces that I had in my stash :).
I used the Papermania Vintage Notes paper.  I love how shabby chic they are.  I painted the wood shadow box with gesso and then with China Blue acrylic paint.  I love that color!!!  I added a paper doilie then I placed the Tilda that I colored up with my Copic markers and then fussy cut.  There are bits of vintage laces, pearls, appliques, Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima paper flowers, trinket pearls that I knotted, fabric leaves, butterfly appliques, tons of Wild Orchid Crafts halfback pearls in different shapes and sizes, buttons, some fabric flowers, and some millinery flowers.
I would like to enter this project into:
-Tilda's Town Challenges: Challenge #103 Your Favorite Coloring Medium…My fave color medium at this time is Copic Markers.  I'm still learning though ;).
-Marvelous Magnolia Challenge Blog - Challenge 67 Newest or Favorite Tilda - this is my newest (first) and favorite Tilda :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies!

~* Shabby Chic Tilda "Card" *~

Sorry, I have not been bloggin' lately or making too many projects.  I've been both preparing for an exam and been sick :(.  I am still sick, but getting better slowly.  I hope all is well with you, my sweet friends!
Here is a "card" that I made using the adorable "Butterfly Wishes Collection - Tilda With Hawaii Flower".  I guess you can guess why I bought the stamp, hehe.  I colored her up with my Copic markers.  I fussy cut around the image.
I started off with a 6" x 6" piece of chipboard that I adhered some corrugated cardstock onto.  I used the beautiful papers from the Papermania Vintage Notes collection.  I love the papers!  I distressed the papers with my fingernail.  I also used a big heart paper doilie.  I cut one of the designer papers from the Vintage Notes collection in the shape of a heart.  I added some pretty cream lace around the edge of the heart-shaped paper.  I added an adhesive cream doilie that looks likes wings behind the Tilda image.  I also made a little banner using the paper collection.  I used a Stampin' Up! banner punch and added heart pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts to each banner.
I added a bunch of yummies from Wild Orchid Crafts - paper roses (trellis, cottage, and rosebuds), pearl flowers, crystal bling, fabric butterfly, rose cabochon, and some pearl trim that I knotted.  I added some Prima paper butterflies, Petaloo velvet flowers, my fave May Arts crochet trim, some delicate lace that I tied in a bow, a plastic heart bead, and some seam binding.
I would like to enter this project in:
- Tilda's Town Challenges - Challenge #102 Anything Goes
- Sugar Creek Hollow: #85 Tic Tac Toe - My "card" uses these elements - Flowers, Pearls, and Die Cut (the bottom row)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
