A Little about me

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I have loved doing crafts for as long as I can remember-sewing, ceramics, painting. But I have only been involved in paper crafts for the past four years.What I love the most about paper crafts is the plethora(check out the 50 cent word) of styles and techniques in paper crafting.There is something for everyone. I hope, on this blog, to show you some of the techniqques I have learned and the cards or scrapbook pages I have made using those techniques.

Spring Time Tildas

Here are 2 cards I made colored with Copics. For the Tilda on the wall, I cut around the flowers on the patterned paper and inserted the bottom edge of the wall into the paper to add more dimension to the wall. I love monochromatic with a splash of colors here and there, which is what I did with Tilda with the egg and the egg cart. I used an ultra-fine yellowish glitter on Tilda's wings.

Pretty Tilda

Here are some of my first "Tilda" cards.
Tildas are rubber, unmounted stamps that originated in Sweden.
They and her companion stamp, Edwin, are the latest craze in stamping and card making. These top two cards I colored with "Copic" markers, and the bottom with "Prisma Premier" pencils and OMS. The bottom card is and "easel" card and the tutorial for this card can be found on "Splitcoast Stampers", along with other tutorials for card designs. Tildas make a great accompaniment for my "penny-flowers".
