June Mingle Cards

I'm trying to get all my back posts caught up. I've been working really diligently to get my Copics Class #1 homework assignments done and uploaded for Suzanne to check. Now I'll be starting Class #2 tomorrow.

On to the June Mingle Cards.

The very talented Cordine made this beautiful card for me using Tilda with Blueberries.  The papers are from an older Magnolia paper pack.  I sure wish I could find some of them.  I love them. 

Tilda is just perfectly colored using the blue-grays to match the papers. 

And did you notice all those layers?  I LOVE layers and more layers!

 This is my "spring-y" card that went to Rhonda McGibbon.  I sure hope she likes daisies.

There wasn't much coloring on this card. 
Copic marker colors I used were Y08, 06, 11, YG01, 05, G07, 05, E25, 31, 50, 47, 44, 43.

The designer papers are from Stampin' Up!  Tilda is mounted on ovals cut using my Cuttlebug and Nestibilities ovals.  I added some yellow Stickles to the daisy centers.

The sentiment panel was cut and embossed using my Cuttlebug and Nesties.

The sentiment stamp is a Magnolia from Diana's store.  The daisies were from my stash.  The leaves were punched using a Martha Stewart branch punch.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.


May Mingle cards finally posted

I just realized that I had not posted pictures of the May Mingle Cards that I had sent and received.

This is my May Mingle card sent to Corry Smyrski.  I saw a card Jeanette Comerford had done using the Watering Can and Tilda with Daffodil on a round card.   I had just received my order from Diana that had the Watering Can in it.  Sooooo-
Tilda is colored using R24, 22, 00, E35, 34, YR21, 20, 24, G07, RV14, Y06
The watering can used C00, 1, 3, 5.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbon is from my stash.

On the inside I put a butterfly charm, the Romantic tag cutout, and some small flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbons from my stash.

The designer papers are from my stash, probably Stampin' Up!

This is the May Mingle card I received from Donna Jean Eno.

It had been raining for several days when I received this gorgeous card from Donna Jean.  What a beautiful bright spot it was!!!  This picture does NOT do justice to the bright colors and glitter all over this card.

I kept this sitting above my work space until last week when I had to clean up my mess.  It seemed that every time I looked at it I saw something I had missed before.

The inside is just as bright and sunny as the front!

My drooping spirits were lifted everytime I looked at this card.  I love it!!

I hope your spirits have been brightened by just looking at pictures of my "Spring is here!" card.
