Hey there, crafty people! Today, I am just glad to show you the two cards I've made this week...Yes, I hope I can make more than two but not a lot of time to play with and this two took me forever...LOL But I am so happy with the way they turned out. I hope you can agree with me. I am so into sewing cards right now (since I got rid of that fear to sew on paper 2 weeks ago and made my first card) that I thought every card I would make will have some kind of stitching but this Tilda card end up with no stitching yet a lot of work. Here's some pics:
SIDESTEP GARDEN COURAGE TILDA CARD:
This Magnolia Tilda image is stamped and hand-colored by me and showing Psalm 31:24 for sentiment. This is a fun style card that is very 3-D. This is my first time to try the side step card and I thought it would be so easy but any wrong or crooked measurement can ruin the shape of the card...Very tricky, I tell you! I wasted two 8.5 X 11 white CS before I had the perfect cut...Now, the fun part is coloring this lovely Magnolia Tilda and creating a concept. The whole garden motif was far from what I originally planned but after I placed the grass (from Sizzix dies), the whole new concept dawned to me...I just love it! Love the flowers too (Studio G)...All images are colored with Gamsol. The swirl that Tilda is sitting on turned out cute after some major inking mishap, I was able to incorporate that to the swirl design which turned out well (Oh, I thank God!)
SIDESTEP GARDEN COURAGE TILDA CARD (Sideview):
This so much fun but tons of work...I can tell that I will be doing some more of this card style in the days to come.
Now here's another fun design...Tsaraaa! I also entered this card in the following challenges:
1. Polka Doodle shaped card challenge
2. Cute Card Thursday featuring ribbons...
3. The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge featuring stitching...
JUST FOR YOU DOILY FLOWER CARD:
This great flower image is stamped and hand-colored by me and showing "Just For You" as sentiment. The card base was cut 5.25 inches from Cricut Wild Card cartridge. There's a lot inking, stamping and stitching on this one as you can tell from the pictures both inside and outside the card. The main flower design was embossed to create a wet look. Another dry, embossed image can be seen beside the message space. I put a lot of work on this, I tell you, but truly worth it. I got some inspiration from the "A Card-A-Day" book (from designer Beatriz Jennings) but made all the colors and concept mine. This is the best Card book ever! Even my 4-year old boy loves this card...
JUST FOR YOU DOILY FLOWER CARD (INSIDE THE CARD):
Here I am falling in love with stitching and incorporating that in this card...Why did I chicken out on sewing and let my brand new sewing machine sit for more than a year? But there's no more turning back now. I love how stitching adds beauty to a card so, you can see more stuff like this in the future.
Okay, thanks for checking my blog guys and just want to thank the Lord Jesus for all the strength, resources and fresh ideas he reveals to me in my creation...To Him be the glory always!
