Here is my card for the Tilda & Co Challenge for this week.  The backing paper is DCWV and the delightful Tilda is coloured with Prisma and Sansodor as usual.

Sue’s Blog Candy

Suzanne at Slumber Cards is offering some awesome blog candy this week, and all you have to do is to post a photo of your favourite Spring tree or blooms. Sadly,  we don’t have any blossom trees in flower at the moment and the daffodils have finished flowering, so my offering is my favourite shrub, Photinia ‘Red Robin’, which throws up wonderful red leaves in the Spring, adding a beautiful splash of colour at this time of year.

Celebrate Sweden

For our fourth challenge at Tilda and Friends we are celebrating the birthplace of our favourite stamps.   In honour of this, the  challenge this week is ‘Blue and Yellow’, the colours of the Swedish flag.  I used an image of Edwin dressed in blue and yellow on my ATC, and the papers are scraps from my stash, as is the little key charm.

New Cards

Hasn’t the weather been awful during the Easter break?  Whilst it  snowed, hailed and froze, I stayed in the warm and made a few cards – the gardening can always wait for another weekend!  The first one is a birthday card for a dear friend – have a lovely day on Wednesday, Sue!  The image is a Lola Rose image from Pink Petticoat, The colouring is done with Prisma pencils blended with Sansodor.  I’ve added a touch of Sakura clear Glaze to the rose on the bath, and ‘Fluffy Stuff’ to the bubbles, with crystal glitter sprinkled sparingly on top before heating with a heat gun.  The papers are Sissix and blue pearl card, and the pink silky flower is from Prima.

Lola Rose Bubbly

On the Dotty Lola card I used a lovely pearly dotty background paper by Craft House, with  light orange cardstock embossed with the Swiss Dots folder from Cuttlebug  The Lola with Bunny stamp is by Sugar Nellie, coloured in with Prisma, blended with Sansodor.  The flower is from Prima.

The cute sheep image is also by Pink Petticoat, and I’ve used Fluffy Stuff to accentuate her wool.   Prisma pencils with Sansodor were used to colour, adding glaze pens on the flower and sheep’s hooves.  I embossed the yellow card stock with a Cuttlebug folder, and the background paper is from my stash.  I also used a Cuttlebug die to cut the flower accent after printing the sentiment on the computer.

Thank Ewe

Hope you enjoy the new cards!

Mmm… Chocolate!

The challenge this week at Tilda and Friends is ‘Chocolate’. I hope you’ll agree with me that the DT have done a great job, and all the ATCs are deliciously yummy! We have another treat for you this week – three lucky participants will receive some of the recent Tilda images, plus some little accessories like flowers and leaves, which are very useful for accents. Why not pop along to Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge and enjoy the only non-fattening chocolate you’ll find this weekend! I’m looking forward to seeing your ATCs.

Sweet Sugar Challenge 3 – Black, White and Pink

Sugar Nellie Black White and Pink Challenge

Here is the card I made for the Sugar Sweet Challenge with the theme of ‘Black, White and Pink’. I used DCWV paper and pearlised card in black and pink. Maggie is coloured with Derwent Artist pencils, blended with Sansodor. I added a white stitched ribbon and some punched flowers with pink gems as accents.

Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge

We were all so chuffed at the response to the  first challenge over on Tilda and Friends; thank you for showing us your beautiful sparkly ATCs, and special thanks to the ‘first timers’ – we were bowled over by all your artwork!  I hope that you will continue to support the challenges in the weeks to come, and enjoy them as much as we do. 

ATC ‘Pretty in Pink’ by Maria Adams

This week’s challenge is ‘In the Pink’, as that’s how were all feeling! Here is my ATC ‘Pretty in Pink’.  I’m looking forward to seeing your cards!

Celebrate Spring!

Celebrate Spring by Maria Adams

Another ‘homage’ to Spring and a chance to use a lovely Tilda stamp.  The papers used are some more magazine freebies – can you tell that I’m trying to use these up?!  They are in my favourite colours though, so why not?  I love my Cuttlebug and used one of their new embossing folders on the purple cardstock and the Prima flowers with sparkly brads are from my stash. The sentiment is by Studio G.  I’ve decided to use this card, which includes many of my favourite things, to enter Aud‘s Favourites Challenge.
