Tilda Goes On A Picnic at Friday Sketchers 65
Woooohoooooo!! Happy Friday to everyone and I am back with my Maggies!!!! I hope that you all have had a magnificent week and will enjoy a special weekend!!
Today is Week 65 at Friday Sketchers and we are being hosted by the exceptionally talented Bea of Germany. She has presented us with an exceptionally fun sketch this week! I would love for you to visit us at Friday Sketchers to see all of the DT Sample Cards and to join us this week with a card that you have made using Bea's sketch. In order to be eligible for a prize from Inky Impressions, please remember to link your post in a comment and then be sure to link back to Friday Sketchers on your blog post.
I have used Picnic Tilda, Picnic Quilt, Tilda's Table, Basket of Rolls, and Wine Bucket, all from the Party and Vacation Collection 2008, and the Butterfly Background from the Catching Butterflies Collection 2009. All of these stamps are from Magnolia-licious although it looks as though Diana may be sold out of some of them temporarily. Please contact her if you are looking for a particular stamp, and I am sure she will assist you. She has the largest selection of Maggies in all of North America. Her shipping is a real deal and you will find her customer service to be TOPS!!!! She also offers special deals for all members of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Site--so it is well worth your time to check it out!!!
For my card I used Bazzill CS for the base, SU Real Red and PTI Lemon Tart CS for all matting, and all of the DP is from the BG June Bug Collection. All major panels were stitched in red. For the front, I stamped Tilda twice and colored her with Copics and a touch of Diamond Stickles on her wings, propping her up with dimensional tape. The quilt and background were also colored with Copics and the flowers have Souffle centers. I added the ribbon for the vertical panel and of course the bow is made with the Bow-Easy, a gift from Claudia and the "FRIEND" charm is from Jeanette. It is magnificent to have two friends who are so exceptionally talented and inspiring!! Thanks to both of you!!! All flowers used are from Jayne at Crafty Feeling in the UK. Finally I added tiny brads to the corners and a couple of heart buttons.
The inside of the card is more of the same. I made a little scene with the table, basket of rolls, and wine bucket and added a wine bottle charm....a few flowers...a little ribbon...a jotting spot...and there you have it!!
I just could not resist making another envelope box using Priscilla's template. I used some 12X12 June Bug paper, sewed on 36 heart buttons to the front and added hand-stitching and heart buttons to the back and VOILA, a complete matching set!!
Thank you so much for dropping by today!! I hope you have enjoyed what I have posted as much as I enjoyed making it!! I love for you to come by and I especially enjoy reading what you have to say about my little stuff!! And now for a little kinda secret I guess...but I am telling you anyway because I want you to come by to visit me...next Friday the DT members of Magnolia-licious are having a Halloween blog hop showing samples of our cards and treat holders. You can bet if you come by to see me, you will have a chance to win my card AND a treat holder filled with yummies...Hey!!! Who knows??? There may even be some more tricks up my sleeve!!!! wink wink...This is also a friendly reminder to order those Halloween stamps NOW because you know how quickly these darling Maggies sell out!!!! Until next time big hugs for all of you!!!!!
