Fun Cards!

I'm almost caught up with the older birthday cards to post.  Yeah!!
Due to Kodak Easy Share "eating" some of my pictures, I don't have all of the newer cards, but I have some of them.

The first one to share with you features Dangling Tilda.

 The paper is from K&Company's Handmade tablet.  I tried to have Tilda hang from one of the circles, but it didn't work out the way I saw it "in my head".  So she got hung from the ribbon instead!

Tilda was colored with Copics.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The ribbon from my stash.
The butterfly was a gift from my friend Lillian.
This card went to Crystal Thomas.
 The center features the swing from Magnolia's Swing stamp without the tree branch part.  The circle was cut with Nestabilities Scalloped Circle dies.
The sentiment panel was cut using Deckled Rectangles.
The sentiments were computer generated.

Ballerina Tilda is showcased on DCWV's Primrose paper trimmed out with a piece of pale turquoise wide lace from my stash.
The flower in the upper corner was a Melissa Francis design that I got from someone's Etsy shop a long time ago.

The die cut is Magnolia's My Love Heart.
The tiny roses and leaves were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Tilda was colored with Copics.

All the papers used on the inside were from the The Primrose tablet.
The Happy Birthday stamp was from Stampin' Up!

This card went to Jody Blaufus.

 Princess Tilda looks very regal as she posed on a Marianne Designs Creatables oval.

Tilda was colored with Copics. 
The pearls were from my stash.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.The papers were from K&Company's Blue Awning tablet.
 The glitter on the paper is very glittery in real life, but doesn't show up very well in the picture.

The sentiment panel was cut using a Joy! Craft die.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The sentiment was computer generated.

This card went to Karen Gauthier.

My nephew, Nate's birthday was in June.  I had intended to take his card with me to our Family Reunion in early July.  However, I didn't make it this year.  His card was a fun never ending card.  This is the third one I've made and they get easier every time!

Here is the front - Face 1.

This is the front of the card.
Mini Cool Edwin is mounted on a petite oval panel cut using Nestabilities Petite Scalloped Ovals.

The Sweet Christmas Present looks very much a birthday gift colored in non- Christmas colors.

 All of the papers were from my stash.

Face 2 results when opening Face 1 by turning the panels to the sides.

Mini Hiking Background and mini Moose provide a peaceful camping scene.

Mini Burger Tilda and Barbecue Riley the Moose create a cool picnic scene when mounted on watermelon paper.
The sentiments were computer generated with lots of trial and error to get the placement exactly where I wanted it. Tee Hee!!

Top and bottom panels for Face 2 flip up and down respectively to reveal Face 3.
You'll notice that the side panels from Face 2 also show in Face 3.

Mini Edwin in Miami is mounted on seashell paper from my friend Lillian.

Mini Hiking Edwin is mounted on paper from the stash.

Face 3 panels are flipped to the sides to reveal Face 4.

The papers are from the stash.
The swirl stamp was from an Autumn Leaves set by Rhonna Farrer called Swirls V:I.

Mini Edwin Wants a Hug stands behind his brand new car (Tilda's Summer Car stamp)!
The top section is left blank for a hand written note.

My May Mingle card went to Myra Webb.

Tilda with Cross Necklace is mounted on offset Deckled Rectangles which were cut with Nestabilities dies.

All the embellishments were from my stash.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Of course it was an easel card!!

The sentiments were computer generated on offset Deckled Rectangles.
More flowers were added to dress it up a bit.

Thank you for staying with me through a long post.  Have a wonderful day!

More cards posted

Hi blogger friends!

Here is another long post of cards I did for March birthdays.  Yes, you read that correctly - March.  I am still behind with my blog posts.  Bear with me and someday I will be caught up.

There were a lot of March birthdays so I will just post the pictures and not too much blab about each one.

The papers were from K&Company' Spring Blossom stack.

Poppy Tilda somewhat matches the papers!

Here's the open view of the easel card.

This went to Cathrine Atkinson.

Again, these are Spring Blossom papers.

Tilda with Daisies and Mushrooms looks like she's having a grand time out in the fresh air watching the butterflies.  In case she gets lost the Sign shows her the way home or to Edwin's.

The Butterfly Border was a recent addition to my die cuts.

Here's the open view of Debbie Keith's card.

The daisies are from a K&Company dimensional stickers pad.

The background papers are from K&Company's Cottage Garden stack.

Tilda with Bee sitting on the Old Bench just seemed a perfect fit with the papers!

Here's the open view of Karen Christmann's card.

The daisy stickers are from the K&Company's dimensional accessories pack.

More K&Company's Spring Blossom papers!  They were all so beautiful it was hard to resist using them.

Sweet Tilda makes a wonderful focal point among all the spring flowers.

I was on an easel card roll when I made all these cards.

Here is the open view of Kay Watson's card.

What could be better than Prince Froggy and Spring Blossom's water Lily design.

Tilda with Prince Froggy is the perfect image for this paper. 

I trimmed out some of the water lilies and added them for a dimensional touch.

For the easel bottom, I cut out several water lilies and pads and added them.

I certainly hope Lori Palmer likes her card.  It was very fun to make.

Here's another version of the Spring Blossom poppy like flowers for the background.

Poppy Tilda seemed so natural to use with this paper.

Of course, this is another easel card.

I hope Marion Bergsmavan liked her card.

All of the card bases were Stampin' Up! cardstock.

All of the flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts or Hooked on Crafts.

All ribbons and any other embellishments were from my stash.

Thank you for taking time to look at all my March birthday cards.  I had a great time making them.
I would love to hear your comments on them.
