Sunflower Tildas

Hello girls!!

Here are my newest creations:
I absolutely love sunflower tilda, and I hope you do to! If you are looking for a place to purchase her, here are three locations that I know about! The first is directly from Magnolia - (click on magnolia for the link), the second is Magnolia-licious website in the US, and the third is a new shop in Canada, called Little Stamp Shoppe.

Both images were colored with copic markers and prismacolor pencils. I would love to blog some more, but my bed is calling!

Have a great day!!

Swinging thanks

I don't have all the details on my card, but if you have any questions, be sure to ask. I am doing this so I get my cards posted and also because I am so short on time right now.
I will let you know that this image was colored with copics, and the girl and swing are wonderful magnolia stamps.
Hope you have a great day

Perfect day Tilda

I emailed this card to my Mom earlier this week to show her and see if she likes it, and she emailed back and said "This card is for me, right Trina??". So I am pretty sure that this card will be going to her....nice thing about giving her a card, is she always gives me an amazing one right back!! It's so fun to have family that is into cardmaking too!!
The stamps used on this card are mostly from Magnolia. The ticket stamps are from Autumn leaves.
Inks: Versafine black, SU orange, prismacolor pencils and OMS.
Paper: Georgia pacific cs, imagine that textured cs, bazzill cs, DCWV pockets full of posies, unknown cardstock
Accessories: lace, prima flowers, may arts ribbon, brads

Have a great weekend!
I made this card for my Mom for Mother's Day this year. I fell in love with the image from Magnolia, so I had to use her, and that paper just matched so well. I tried to make my first ribbon blossom on this card, and a word to the wise....make sure you leave the ribbon pieces long enough...cause I sure had to fight to tie the ribbons!!
Have a great day!

My new calendar

I love my new magnolia calendar for my desk at my office. It was so fun to make!!
I used Beate's wonderful tutorial on splitcoast stampers. Click here for the link for the instructions.

Papers: MME wild asparagus designer paper, SU Blush blossom and chocolate chip.
Inks: Versafine black ink, prismacolor pencils and OMS
Accessories: Ribbon from dollarama (awesome deal - 5 different ribbons, each 1 meter in length for just $1.00) - after doing this calendar, I went and bought a bunch more ribbon, cause at just a buck, you can't lose!!, bind-it-all binding, brads, prima flowers, 3 little clear heart jewels.

My local scrapbook store had a scrapbooking night on Friday, that I was lucky enough to go to. I met some awesome ladies, and had a blast. We started scrapbooking at 6:30pm, I didn't leave till 1:00am, and some of the ladies were still going strong!! What fun we had, also they offered us shopping at 20% off, gotta love a deal!!

Birthday Tilda

I got some gorgeous flowers a couple of weeks ago from Scrappin' Great Deals, so I had to be sure to use them. If you are looking for a place to buy accessories from in Canada, including the much sought after Nestabilities....don't look any further! Her service is great, and if something is out of stock, when it comes in, she sends it out with free shipping!

If you are looking for a source for the Magnolia stamps, I get mine from The Town Scrapper. Her email address is , she is a great person to work with, and has given me some good deals!

I got some awesome mail yesterday! My Magnolia stamp club arived straight from the magnolia site. I am mounting the stamps on easy mount as we speak, and hopefully will be working on some cards soon!! Yay...I am so excited!!
