Two Projects today!

I don't usually do double posts but this is a busy week! Lots to make and show so I'm glad you came by! If you started here and don't want to miss anything you may want to visit our excellent Suzanne's blog now. If you've arrived from the superior Sharon you're doing great! I'm at the end of the hop so feel free to check out the link to Diana's wonderful store on my sidebar! Our Design Team blog hop today is to feature some pop up cards we've made! So here is mine. It is called a Spring Card and the directions (easy!) are in the Resources section at SCS! I've seen so many terrific cards made with Tilda with bow and I had to get in the act with Spring colors! My lavendar colors are BV000 and BV02 with a little darker lavendar that I can't remember right now. The pinks are R81 and R83. Her sleeves are YR000 and YR21. Her hair is E33, YR21 and E25.
This second card is for the Copic Creations challenge. This time we are sponsored by DZDoodles digital images and I love my basket of eggs! I have quite a number of birdhouses, nest and eggs that I decorate with in the spring. My favorites are actually the "natural" ones so that's the look I went for. I used the nasty rag on my eggs and added some dots for the look I wanted. But, our challenge is...


to color embellishments! Yep, with our copics! I colored some PTI twill ribbon (it was cream). I also colored the blue buttons and even the twine in the white button. They are all colored with BG72 and the buttons have a mottled apearance like the egg. The sketch is a MoJo Monday one.
This card says Spring to me and it could be for Easter, too!
I will have a few more pictures of this card tomorrow with our Mo's digital Pencil blog hop! We are celebrating 1000+ members on PCP and I don't think you'll want to miss the event!
If you have any questions about these cards, please don't hesitate to ask!
Have a great day! I will-it's our Winter Break from school!
Cheryl
Forgot to add, YES, I will be giving SOMETHING away. Not sure what, but definitely a Maggie card and a Maggie stamp!
Just leave a comment! I love,love,love reading them! Maybe youi can tell me the weather where you are today! (We're weather buffs here!) THANKS!

Hi ya your cards are beautiful and certainly make you think of spring, unlike our weather here in sheffield uk. We are having a very dull grey day with intermittent heavy rain and sleet, though the birds in my garden think its spring, just wish the weather would catch up . Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards Julye

asela said...

Beautiful! I love this image!

It is cold here in the Philadelphia area. We are supposed to get ANOTHER 3-6" of snow tonight (and we got 22" last Wednesday and 22" the saturday before!). I can't take this anymore! I hope the weather is better where you are!

Michelle said...

Gorgeous, Cheryl! I just love that you can color just about anything with Copics!!

Rufus said...

Love your spring card. Tilda with bow is SO cute! You want weather? It's COLD. I'm in Florida and it's supposed to be warm, but we had frost/freeze again last night. I want WARM! Oh well, at least I'm not shoveling like most of the country.
Thanks,
R/

Barb Hardeman said...

Both your cards are awesome, Cheryl! I love 'spring' cards and this one is absolutely gorgeous. Your spring dp is very delicate and perfect with Wrapped Tilda (one of my favorites). Your eggs in basket card is also stunning! Your coloring is beautiful and the dyed twill and buttons are wonderful. Absolutely gorgeous job on the hop...hugs...Barb

Rhonda said...

Cheryl, Very pretty cards! We are thawing out from a record snowfall. In Ft Worth, Tx we had 12" of snow. This is the most this area has seen in 50 years. It was so much fun.

MarieL said...

As usual two stunning cards, Cheryl. I love the soft spring colors.
It is still cold here (6:40 AM PST) but it suppose to get up to the high 50's, nice sunshiny weather and I bet snow by Easter.
Hello from No. Nevada, "Sharon Caudle Land".

Peggie said...

Tilda is so sweet in her spring colors. Great job. The basket card is very pretty also.

Oh, I just love the egg card! The colors are so warm and fun!

The weather here is cold and we have many inches of snow on the ground with 6 (or more) expected later today.

Myrna said...

Cheryl, Your cards are amazing. I didn't buy this little Tilda and I have been seeing her done up so cute I may have to break down and buy her. She is adorable and your coloring is beautiful as usual. You do such an amazing coloring job on your baskets and wood. Just love the Easter basket card too. Thanks for inspiring.

Angel said...

Nancy Parker said...

Hi Cheryl,Love both of your cards- I can see I'm not alone by all the comments already! Never thought of colouring embellishments before - that's a great idea! I'm heading over right now to get the directions for your Spring card - love it! Here in SW Ontario we have grey skies with the chance of flurries, the temp. is around -3C. Have a great day, Nancy

quite interesting post. I would love to follow you on twitter.

Rosella said...

What a beautiful pop-up card! Have not tried this type of card yet.
Love your springy feel!! Looking forward to seeing those in nature soon!

Lisa Kind said...

Weather buffs? I cannot imagine why! LOL!!! These are so pretty, Cheryl! I LOVE that Tilda with the bow! So cute and colored so beautifully! And your Easter egg basket card is adorable! Great technique, too! See you Wednesday!

Rosella said...

Forgot to tell you about our weather. Actually, it is beginning to feel quite a bit like spring. We have some flowers blooming already! It is a bit chilly though. And we're hosting the Winter Olympics. Good thing is that the mountains are colder!!

Helen said...

Beautiful cards! I love the spring "maggie" and your Easter basket is awesome!
It's partly Sunny today with some clouds moving in an a light gorgeous snow falling. Yesterday, though, we had a mini-blizzard and were able to see some snow formed into a tornado (of course it was NOT a tornado, so there was no danger and it was very small, only a few feet high, because there wasn't too much snow) We're in KS, btw.
Blessings!

My goodness the magnolia card is just wonderful and makes me long for Spring. We too are having snow right now (thankfully not much) but the wind is supposed to really give it a ride after while.

Tamara said...

Great card! The weather here is colder than normal, but not as bad as it has been this winter, or as bad as it is across the country. It's about -20C, but not too much wind, and no snow in the forecast.

Harriet said...

What a beautiful card... I love the way you colored it and made it so natural looking...great inspiration for me.... I am in East TN and we got about 4 inches of snow and it is cold and windy today...sun is shining right at the moment though.... I would love to win !!!!!

Alisha said...

Low 40's and sunny here in N. Texas. Had several inches of snow last week and it was Beautiful!!! Guess the last little bit of it will be melting today. -- Your cards are adorable! I'm just getting into stamping and coloring with Copics and love that you include the colors you have used in your projects.

Danni said...

Wonderful creations!!

Pam S. said...

Hi Cheryl - I like the "natural" look too!
Love this October Afternoon paper, I have some..but I'm just not quite ready to think Spring! lol
Pam Going Postal

Geri said...

I adore these cards! Your coloring is spectacular! The pastel colors are gorgeous! So springy and eastery!

siameseplease said...

I have yet to try using my copics to color buttons and ribbon. Thanks for the inspiration! As far as the weather goes...well, it's snow, snow, and more snow. We have a few feet on the ground already and they are calling for more tonight. I'm done with it!!! Where in the heck is spring?!?! - Gina L.

leenda said...

It's easy to leave you comments! Love your style/creativity/inspiration/& coloring!

Sarah said...

Guess I've a long way to go with my copics to be at your standard - they are both wonderful in design and inspiration. The weather here in the NW of England has been very wet, mist and wet and then a little bit more wet! Perfect crafting weather! Sarah x

Kat said...

I love your spring card with Tilda. Gorgeous colours. The card with the eggs is really lovely too, nice fresh colours.
The weather here has been horrible and wet today. I live in NE Scotland, Aberdeenshire to be exact not far from the North Sea coast.

Cara said...

Beautiful cards...I love those springs cards and have never made one...guess its time to try one...great coloring!

megline said...

Beautiful card. Here in Montreal, Canada, it is sunny and the weather is very mild for this time of the year. We didn`t have any snow for a long time and we should end February without any snowstorm. I think the U.S. have all our snow this year.
Hugs, Line

Wow, Cheryl, both cards are awesome. You did such a beautiful job on your Basket of Eggs. I LOVE the natural look. I also love the colors and papers you used. Gorgeous card. Weather....it's been consistently cold here, and here is Florida. We kind of like it, but we know lots of folk who don't.

SAZCreations said...

I just love your cards and blog. You are such a great inspiration to us.

Julie said...

I love your card. Great coloring and your directions are very helpful for me as a copic newbie. The weather here in Ohio (Dayton) is cold and tons of snow. Can't see my car, lol. Being from Los Angeles, it is quite a shock.

Michelle said...

Hi from Far North Queensland Australia!!

We are in the middle of our tropical wet season here. Runs from November through to April. Probably about 30 degrees C most days with 90% humidity and thunder, lightening and the occassional cyclone. Other than that just lovely thanks!

I have been browsing your blog again tonight and I just LOVE your work. Your colouring is outstanding. I love your pop up card with Tilda on the bow. You have such attention to detail really shows in your work.

Thanks for sharing your incredible talent.

Michelle

Jennifer said...

Your cards are beautiful and full of inspiration!!! Our weather here in Fairport, NY is cold 32 degrees, very windy and we have about 8 inches of snow with some more on the way. The snow doesn't bother me as much as the wind does.
It's so cold it takes your breath away.

Jodie from Oz said...

Cheryl, Wow, both of your cards are stunning, the papers, colours and images are wonderful and so beautifully coloured. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs Jodie from Oz

As for weather, well, we lived in Hawaii like the girl before me (above comment), and we LOVED IT but missed the snow!!! Well, now that we are in the Seattle/Tacoma area, we still havent seen a single inch of that beautiful snow everyone has been talking about all winter... {Though we've had about 100+ inches of rain!} It figures! LOL

Michelle said...

I love your cards and your work! Amazing detail and color.

Weather here - cold, wet, snowy and all around blech - but it just makes spring all the sweeter!
