A Papilio Easter

Hi! Today, I would like to show you a card I made with a stamp from Papilio...another favorite stamp company. I used Bazzill for the base and the new Basic Gray papers "Green at Heart"
Of course, to top it off, I used the beautiful gardinia I purchased through a friend. The pearls are from Martha Stewart. The butterfly was found in my stash.
My stamp room needs to be more I will definitely get to that after Easter.
Thanks for looking. Hugs, Christina

Bildmalarna for MMSC47

Hi! I have another post for today. I made this card for MMSC 47 using the cute image by Bildmalarna. For the base of the card, I used Bazzill and the dp is Basic Gray Green at Heart.
The metal flower decoration to the right of the image is from Megahobby. I also used twine on this card. My German shepherd thought it looked too much like a ball and decided he wanted to play with it.
The image is colored with copics. Thanks for looking. Hugs, Christina

Easter Egg Hunt

I made this card one week ago using the cute new stamps from the Magnolia Easter collection. I purchased the designer paper at Archivers. Unfortunately, I only purchased one sheet of the dp....wish I had purchased more! I like the spring colors. I used my Nellie Snellen die for the image. The raffia is a gift from my dear friend Jacque. Thanks so it!!!! I knew I wanted to use it for my bunny card.
The pearls are from Martha Stewart. The flowers are Prima.
Thanks so much for looking. Hugs, Christina

Bunny Love

Happy Monday everyone....hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I made this card for MMSC 46 using the adorable Tilda from the new Easter collection. The papers are Magnolia and the basket with eggs is from Alota. Of course, the beautiful pearl swirl is from Prima and the punch is a Martha Stewart punch I received as a gift from my dear friend Claudia. Thank you so much!
Tilda is colored with copics and I used glitter on the eggs.
Thank you so much for looking.

Happy Birthday!

I made this card for my daughter's upcoming birthday using this week's Friday Sketchers#95 sketch by the talented and lovely Jeanette. The dp is from my stash, as well as the lace. Flowers are Prima to which I have applied Stickles. Tilda is colored with copics. The corners are adorned with MS them!! I also used a MS punch for the center.
Well, now that I have started a blog, I have no idea what to do next. Don't know how to upload my cards....yikes!!!! This will be a learning process to be sure.
Now that I have joined the cyber world with this brand new blog, I would like to extend BIG HUGS of appreciation to my dear friends for their encouragement. I am the first one to admit that I am technologically challenged and I will probably make mistakes along the way, but it should be a fun journey.
There are so many wonderful blogs that I love to visit on a regular basis and so many talented, kind and helpful artists. Unfortunately, the only thing lacking is enough time in a day.
I am totally addicted to all the wonderful Magnolia and Hanglar/Stanglar stamps, probably because they remind me so much of another passion.......HUMMELS!!!!!
Unfortunately, I can't afford EVERYTHING, so my Hummels have "retired".
I started stamping approximately six years ago, strictly scenery stamping with Stampscapes. Then I started expanding my horizons to other stamp companies. I discovered Magnolias just as they were gaining some popularity in the States.....I think there were only several pages dedicated to Mangolia stamps on the Splitcoastampers look at it!!! Unbelievable!
I will try to upload several cards I have made in the past couple of days. Any and all comments would be appreciated. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Hugs, Christina
