Yes, I know Tilda is really a cute little Swedish sweetie, but today, she's all American and proud of it! I colored this patriotic doll with my Copics, sparkled the stars on her dress with an atyouSpica in clear and cut her out using a Spellbinder's Nestie. I also stamped the saying by Northwoods in Memento Tuxedo Black, bordered it with an old firecracker stamp that I believe is from SU, colored with my Copics and pop-dotted it on. I then added a little yellow and stardust Stickles to the fuse of the firecrackers for a little sparkle. Now, let me back up a little, the really fun part of this card is the background. There's an airbrushing challenge this week on iCopic (WC #36) so I was feeling inspired. I punched out some stars, placed them around in a random pattern and airbrushed with B69. When I felt like I had enough color, I airbrushed some R29 on for the stripes. I used three of the stars I had previously used for stencils as decoration along the bottom. I did edge both Nestie peices with my R29 Copic Sketch for just a hint of color. The base of the card is Bazzill and the rest of the paper is Neenah Classic Crest. I kept the card relatively simple since there was so much going on with patterns. I do hope you enjoy my card, I certainly had a good time making it.

This is one of the newer Tildas, or newer to me at least, from Magnolia Stamps. I spent nine years on active duty in the Army so I'm very patriotic. I love our great country and am so proud to be an American. This is a 6x6 card with Bazzill as the base cardstock and for the stars. I stamped Tilda and the picket fence stamp on Neenah and the printed papers are Best Creations. The stars were cut out with a Spellbinder's Nestie. Her flag is paper-pieced and I cut the buntings and the sentiment from the printed paper's other side. Tilda is colored with Copics and pop-dotted over the fence. I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you enjoy it too! Thanks for looking!

This is a quick little card done with two Stampendous stamps, Celebrate Freedom and one of the Bee Happy stamps. The bee on the tricycle looked like he really needed a path to travel along so I added one with a micron pen. The image is colored with Copics and cut out with a Spellbinders Nestie mounted on a piece of Bo Bunny also cut out with a Nestie. I stamped the Celebrate Freedome twice and cut out both with a Nestie mounting one on the side and one on the bottom. The background paper is by Best Creations. I also used Stickles to accent the dots on the Celebrate Freedom stamp and to also accent the bee's antennae. I wanted to do something simple and cute. I hope you enjoy it.

This is a card done with the new Stampendous Jumbo Rose Cling stamp. Papers are Bazzill for the base, My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey. Colored the rose with Copics. I also used a Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, misc buttons and ribbons. I hope you like it.
