Tilda and her Lamb

Hello hello! Is it Easter yet? No? Good, since I still have 4 more Easter cards to share with you. Phew!

How pretty is this little one? She's taking her favorite lamb for a walk and she just might be passing your house right now. :)

I used Basic Grey's Marjolaine 6x6 pad for this card and it's matching gift box. I can't get enough of the blue-green combination and this pad has (had!) some really nice ones.

Tilda and Lambie are layered and popped off the page. Flowers are Prima, Recollections, Wild Orchid and my wholesalers. Love all the flowers!

Thanks for visiting today!

Tilda's Collection of Easter Eggs

Hello folks! Easter is coming up and Tilda already has a collection of eggs, ready to hide for her friends. The papers on this card are Pion Design's "Fairytale of Spring".

Tilda is colored with Faber-Castell's yummy Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils. I'll be using these a lot more! The bench is color with Prismacolor pencils (still a favorite!).

There's a tag tucked in on the right side, with loads of flowers to pull the tag out.

Large panel for Happy Easter wishes!

The card and matching gift box set

Thanks for visiting today! I have a few more Easter cards to share over the next week or two. Yay!

Magnolia's Tilda With An Easter Lamb

Hello hello! More Easter and more Tilda cuteness coming at you today. :)

I used two Magnolia stamps for this card, standing Tilda in front of an open gate. I love this card and it might be my favorite of all the Easter cards... or maybe the next one I post will be! Hahaha.

I used the last bits of my Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime papers and loads of lovely Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  The seam binding is threaded through a vintage mother of pearl button from my collection.

Tilda, the sweet little lamb and even the fence and flowers are layered for a 3 dimensional effect. Everything is colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS.

Here's the coordinating inside panel.

Thanks for visiting today! I hope you have a creative day.

Magnolia's Tilda with the Easter Bunny!

Hiya crafty friends! I have another Easter card to share with you today. I've been having fun making these little ladies!

I think this Tilda is my all-time favorite because of her hat. I want a hat just like hers. :) See the pearl brad on the coral flower? I thought it looked a little too formal, so I put bisque Liquid Pearls dots on it - now it's fun!

I also used a Magnolia tree stamp and make it into a cherry tree to complement the cherry design on the base layer. Funny that the cherries are barely visible on the finished card. Ha!

Tilda, bunny and tree are all cut out and layered. The plaid lines on the pants were done with a Copic Multiliner pen, and everything was colored with Prismacolor pencils. Papers are all from the My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink collection. It's perfectly springy!

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a grand day!
