Tilda With Love Cake - Birthday Card & Apron Set

Happy Sunday Everyone!

It is the last Sunday of the month and we have a
new Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl Blog.
The theme this week is an easy one ~ Add Flowers.

I made a birthday card and apron gift set  for a special lady
~ our Ribbon Girl Mary who had her birthday recently.
I used Tilda with Love Cake on both the card and apron.

The tag card measures 4.5" x 6".
I colored the image with Distress Ink Pads.
I decorated the card with a mini apron, recipe book,
flowers, die cuts, paper punch outs and
a dinky metal clip to hold the sentiment.
I used the LO from CLP March sketch #56.

For the image on the apron, I stamped the image on TAP
(Leslie Riley's Transfer Artist Paper), and colored it with Copic markers.
I then ironed the image on a piece of white fabric.

The Tilda and mini apron panel can be removed for separate washing.
I used a Butterick pattern for the apron .
The patch work fabric is from a local quilting store.

The following products are available at The Ribbon Girl:
13 mm White fine vintage style cluny lace, 15 mm White flower fine cluny lace, 
32mm 'Victoria' Antique White Fine Cluny Lace, Natural botton twine,
White and pink tulip seam binding ribbons, Pale rose pink tiny ric rac ribbon,
WOC Deep pink cherry blossom, Pink pretty blossom,White sweetheart blossom.

Pretty Woman

Good afternoon everyone!
2nd post today. 

I want to share a project I made for a lady in Australia.  
Few months ago, I won a challenge at No Matter Which Challenge.
Part of the sponsored prize is this beautiful stamp called 
"Pretty Woman" by Kitty-lane.
I had promised Fay that I would create something for her using this stamp.

The gift set consists of a book card and a tea cozy.
I colored the image with Copic markers, machine stitched and distressed all paper edges.
I added half doily and pom pom ribbon in the bottom half of the background,
and tore up strips of DP for the upper part.
I used CLP's March Sketch for this book card.


Dies used are from Spellbinders, Memory Box, and Marianne.
Designer Papers are Pion Design.

I added a short strip of Webster's Pages ribbon in the upper right corner
and attached 3 metal jump rings and blue crystal drops.

 I decorated inside the card with Pion Design Paper Cutouts,
vintage cluny lace and die cuts.

I made a tea cozy back in January, I cut out an extra set of fabric for later use.
The fabric color is perfect for the image I colored.

The image was stamped on TAP paper with Archival Ink 
and colored with Copic markers.
I transferred the image onto a piece of white cotton by ironing.

The following items are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
8mm Ivory Vintage Style Fine Scallop Lace; 32mm Vintage Style Fine Cluny Lace;
17mm Ivory Vintage Style Fine Cluny Lace; 20mm 'Angelica' Ivory Tulle Lace;
38mm Vintage Pink Fluted Edge Sheer Ribbon; Cream Seam Binding Ribbon;
Blue Sweet Heart blossom; Pink Cherry Blossom;
White Stamens; K&G Beaded Ivory Rose

Thanks so much for stopping by again.

Happy Easter

Hello my dear blogland friends!

It's been ages since I posted a card.
I have been rather busy at work and have not had much time lately.  
I have a few days off to catch up with household duties
and hope to visit your blogs.

The weather is sunny and warm here and cherry blossoms have already started~ 
perfect spring weather for the Easter weekend.

I have made a double easel Easter card using 4 Magnolia images
Tilda with Egg & Chicken
Tilda with Daffodil Basket
Little Hoppy with Buttercup
Happy Easter Background

I water colored the images with Distress Ink Pads.
When I finished coloring the background, I accidently spilled the water 
all over the image I just painted. Luckily I was able to 
salvage it quickly and repair as much I could.

I added some Flower Soft sand and sweetpea mix.
Dies used here are Memory Box, and Magnolia DooHickey.
Flower punch is Martha Steward.
DPs are Pion Design and Stampi'Up.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
Blue and pink Sweet Heart Blossoms; baby pink Tulip flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I wish you all a Happy Easter!
