Celebrating with Digital Two for Tuesday

Cora, over at Digital Two for Tuesday, is celebrating her 200th blog post, which was on New Year's Eve. She asked for six volunteers to help showcase her wonderful images, and I am one of them! Cora takes vintage images from old catalogs, magazine, books, etc., cleans them up, and then offers them for free on her blog. Isn't that cool and fun??

For both of my cards today, I used one of her images from June 10. She has so many flower images to choose from, and you know how much I love flowers! For this first one, I printed the image and then cut it out with a Labels 27 die from Spellbinders. I colored with Copic markers and sponged a little bit of light blue ink over the image. I added some Star Dust Stickles to the flowers. The sentiment is from The Paper Company Studio and I scored a few lines around it. The patterned paper is from a stack I got at Michael's.

For my second card, I made a stair-step card. (You can find other stair-step cards that I've made here, along with a tutorial in one of the earliest ones.) Again, I printed the image and colored with Copics. I matted the image with some Papertrey Ink cardstock. I cut the numbers using a Cuttlebug die set. I embossed the piece on the front with a Sizzix embossing folder, after stamping the sentiment.
Be sure to check out Cora's blog and see what her other guest designers have created. You will be amazed:) Thanks, Cora! (You can also find other cards that I've made previously with Cora's images by following this link.)

And finally, I decided to share this one, too. Our three-year-old granddaughter wanted to color something, and I had this image on my desk, so she got to color one, too:) She asked me to color the leaves for her, because they were "too little." :) I added Stickles to her flowers, too. She and her mom and dad and two brothers were here for about five days. It was a bit chaotic for a few days with them, along with our son, daughter-in-law and their two boys here for some of the time, too, but it was great!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I saw your beautiful cards on Digi Two for Tuesday. They're absolutely scrumptious. Love the image you chose. I have to say, your granddaughter has an eye for color. Her flowers are very pretty. I'll bet she loved the glitter you added, too!

Wow! You have been very busy. But what great fun it must have been to have 3 of your grandchildren and DIL with you for 5 days. Looks like your 3 year old granddaughter might follow in your steps in creating pretty cards. :)

oh and by the way I love your middle name. :)
