I chose her technique Tilda card to CASE today because I wanted to try this 'out of the box' cutting technique and I also have tons of Tilda's that I haven't yet inked up! The sentiment and shamrock are from the Irish Blessings set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
I changed the colors, used different stamps and also made mine an easel style card with a calendar on it. The Saturday Spotlight challenge this week was to put a calendar of some kind on your project.
Here's how the easel card looks from the side. If you'd like to make an easel card you can see my tutorial here.
Thanks for coming by today! Got to go help DH shovel snow - again.....!

I used this week's Taylored Expressions sketch for my card.
I attached my little cooking Tilda panel with thick foam tape just at the top and bottom so there was an open space in the middle that I could slip my recipe through. The heart and sentiment are also up on foam dimensionals to help hold the recipe in place.
I stamped a little Magnolia rolling pin in light ink over the recipe.
This is a great Biscotti recipe - my sister got it from her friend last year and she gave it to me. These biscotti are a little softer than the norm so you can actually eat them without dunking them in tea or milk!
Thanks for stopping by - let me know what you've been baking this week - any good recipes to share?!?

I used a different Tilda than Sparkle did, a thinking of you sentiment from PTI rather than Happy Birthday, and different designer paper - but it is basically the same layout. I distressed the edges of the sewn panel. Tilda, the flower and the sentiment are all up on foam dimensionals.
Well - I'm off to make some pecan banana bread using up some banana's that didn't get eaten this past week in my lunches!
Thanks for coming by today!

I used a different Tilda than she used and different flowers butI did follow her overall design and theme of stamps. The corner piece is punched from a Cuttlebug die.
I was so happy to use one of my Tilda's by Magnolia Stamps. I bought about 8 of them quite a while ago and have only used one of them so far. So I'm following one of my New Year's Resolutions - to use the stuff that I have! The sentiment is from the Sweet Love set by Papertrey Ink.
I cut out hearts from a designer paper and popped them up over the stamped flowers to make it more Valentine-ish! I colored Tilda with Koh I Noor pencils and gamsol.
Thanks so much for coming by!

This cute puppies image was a RAK from Mrs. Noodles over at SCS (thank you Dina!). The middle puppy is a basset hound. The fun sentiment and puppy stamp are both by Inkadinkado - the paw print with the heart in it is part of a new stamp set called Top Dog by Artful INKablesAnd these are the real thing - my 'grandchildren' (!) 7 month old Roscoe and 4 year old Daisy - and yes - the 7 month 0ld is already bigger than the 4 year old! (Trouble - right here in River City!)

Here is my card for the Ways to Use It Challenge at Split Coast - to use Copic markers to color an image on a card. I have about a dozen copics but haven't used them much yet not having a lot of colors - I usually use my Prismacolor markers and don't do a lot of shading. So my image today is colored with a combination of both kinds. I was quite surprised and thrilled with how the coloring came out - I have had this Kinkade stamp for ages - but have only previously stamped it monochrome - afraid to attempt coloring it. And for my first try I think it came out well - and will only improve as I practice and get more colors!
Here's a close up of the colored image. For some reason the colors look a little bright here - it's more subdued IRL!

I used a flower from the new Plant Prints set from Artful INKables and stamped it once then again, a little to the right, without re-inking to give the shadow effect.
Kristin is offering 10% off all her Artful INKable stamp sets for the month of July - so be sure to check it out! Might as well save money while you're buying some fun stamps right??!!
We are enjoying our last day at the lake today - Here are a few pictures from our week here.
DH Kent and neighbors work on the lake right-of-way clearing the path and placing the boulders they pulled up against the road area to help stop soil erosion.
We got a scenic ride to the Marina on Kent's cousins Party Barge where we got some delicious ice cream.
A mother duck and her 6 ducklings come up on our cousins lawn every evening to pick up some easy food dropped from her bird feeders.
Thanks for coming by and have a great Sunday!

You could add anything else you wanted - you just had to use the image and the designer paper.
I cuttlebugged the card with the Polka Dot folder but you can only see one line of dots at top and bottom! I used the Gamsol method of coloring with watercolor pencils and you can see a Splitcoast tutorial for that here.
I just love these sweet Tilda's - they have her in many outfits, sometimes sitting, sometimes holding flowers or sweeping. Magnolia is a company in Sweden and you can see the European influence in their designs. There is a boy named Edwin and other characters as well. They also have flowers, benches, chairs, walls and I just saw a whole new summer line listed on their site today.
But back to my card...... I used my Petite Oval Nestabilities to frame Tilda and mounted the ovals with foam dimensionals. I added the pretty ribbon from PapertreyInk underneath the oval and tied a small piece in a knot around the flat piece. The sentiment is from PapertreyInk Favor It Baby set and I just stamped it in Onyx Black and punched it with my SU oval punch and mounted it with foam dimensionals.
You can see the other's Tilda cards here. They'll be loading them all week. There should be 9 of them when everyone is done.
Thank you so much for coming by today!
