Hugs and Kisses Tilda

Good Wednesday Morning to ya! I am off to the airport in a bit to pick up my inlaws who are flying in from Philly, so I will make this post a quick one!

I made another Valentine's card today using Tilda with Letter. I went with a vintage-y look today - not something I do very often. I am steppin' out of my comfort zone and using more blues as well.
I will let you in on a little secret....the papers are actually Christmas papers! LOL - I know you won't tell anyone! They are from the MME Signature Christmas stack and the cardstock is the coordinating Bazzill matches. The sentiment is from PTI. I used Heart Nestabilities, Distress Ink, my favorite fern punch, Copics and lots of flowers (WOC) on this card. Tilda and the sentiment are popped up with 3-D foam tape.
Tilda was colored with these Copics:
Skin - E11, 00, 000, & R30
Hair - E57, 55, 53, & 50
Clothes - BG72, 45, 11, and 10, B24 & 29
Letter - E42, 41, 40 & R37

Stamps - Tilda with Letter, sentiment(PTI)
Paper - MME Signature Christmas DP, Cardstock (Bazzill)
Ink - Memento, Copics, Distress Ink
Accessories - Nestabilities, Fern Punch, Ink Blending Tool, 3-D Foam Tape

Will You Be Mine?

Happy Tuesday, Peeps! I have been busy this morning cleaning house as my in-laws arrive tomorrow from Philly. They got snowed in on Sunday and could not get here before tomorrow. Glad we don't deal with snow here in FL! It has been very chilly this winter, though.

I have a new Valentine card to share with you using Valentine Tilda.
I pulled out some old SU DP for this card. Tilda was colored with Copics and cut out. I used a new large Oval Nestie die to layer her (Got these new for Christmas - yay!!) The pink panel behind Tilda was airbrushed using R32 Copic Marker and my Copic Airbrush System(ABS).
Here is a close-up of Tilda. I used the following Copics to color her:
Hair - E59, 57, 55, 53, 50
Skin - E11, 00, 000 and R30
Clothes - BG49, 13, 11, 10, 0000, R20, E43, 41, & 40

Stamps - Valentine Tilda (Magnolia Stamps), Sentiment (PTI)
Paper - cardstock & DP (SU)
Ink - Memento, Copics
Accessories - Copic ABS, Nestabilities, Fern Punch, Heart Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Flowers (WOC)

Love is in the Air!!

Happy Sunday, y'all! It has been a super-busy week for me - sorry for my absence! My kids are officially on Christmas Break!! I am hoping I survive the bickering between my two youngest children!! It has already begun!

I have 2 new Valentine's albums to share with you. I cannot believe I am already planning Valentine's projects, but it is right around the corner! I used a K&Co kit that I bought at Michael's last week. It was love at first sight when I saw it!! LOL! I will not bore you with the rest of the details on each page, so enjoy the eye candy as you scroll down!

Here is the second album I created. I love how the cover of this one turned out!
