Countrified Tilda at Just Magnolia, WINNER, and SWEET STUFF!!!
I set this to post yesterday to wish a very happy Saturday and a marvelous weekend to everyone!! Since it didn't post, I now wish for you a marvelous Sunday!! I hope your week was a pleasant one and that your weekend will be and has been fun-filled and enjoyable as well!
This week at Just Magnolia we were treated with a marvelously fun sketch by the oh so talented and creative Bev Rochester. I would love for you to come over to Just Magnolia to have a peek at the lovely cards made by the Design Team--they are beautiful!! And if you participate in using Bev's sketch this week, the splendid prize is being offered by Jacobi.nl. So come on over, get your Maggies out, and show us your interpretation of the sketch...We would love to have all of you Maggie Lovers join in with us this week...AND every week!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is Enchanted Evening and Pure Poppy PTI CS, and the Yellow gingham DP is Making Memories (thank you so much, Suzan) and the patchwork quilting DP is from the BG Junebug Collection. All background panels were machine stitched. Little Tulle Skirt Tilda was stamped twice on Cryogen White so that one of her images could be cut out and propped up for dimension. She was colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stickles to her petticoat and tiny red brads for her jean dress buttons. To ground her I used a branch from the Fall/Winter Tree. It looks as though the Tilda is available over at Diana's Shop but the tree is not in the present inventory. If you would like it, please contact Diana and see what the status is. The patchwork quilt DP is matted and bordered with a MS Quilted punch, For the rthin horizontals, I used red, yellow, and blue satin cording. For the floral treatment I used flat flowers from Crafty Feeling and the red asters are from Wild Orchid Crafts. To satisfy the sentiment requirement, I tied a LOVE charm to the tree branch with hemp twine. Finally I used larger red brads to soften the main corners.
For the inside of the card, I used a triad of flat flowers for the first panel and a punch around the page square jotting spot with tiny mixed colors satin ribbon Bow-Easy bow. I hope you like my little creation!
WINNER...The winner of the Belles'n Whistles Sweet Stuff is...
