Tilda with Parasol Greets You to Just Magnolia and SWEET STUFF!!!!
Gosh!!! What a great weekend!! A marvelous Sunday to everyone and hopefully your weekend is a splendid one also!!! With beautiful weather and terrific friends, who wouldn't have a marvelous weekend??
This week at Just Magnolia we are challenged with a Criss-Cross card and were given a magnificent tutorial by the splendidly talented and delightful Jeanette Comerford of Happy Thoughts and Inkspots. Because this is our special monthly challenge, we have Simon Says Stamp to sponsor us with an amazing $30 voucher to spend in their store. So I hope all of you Maggie Lovers will come over and check out the breathtaking cards that the DT have created as well as join us this week by showing us your own creation using the Criss-Cross tutorial and at least one Magnolia stamp.
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is Prismatics, and the DP is all from the Enchanted paper pack by Memory Box Co. I machine stitched most of the panels. Rather than use the criss-cross as my entire card, I reduced the size and used it to hold a greeting tag. Tilda with Parasol was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stickles to the flowers on her hat. Although she is from Magnolia-licious, it looks as though she is out of stock. However, if you contact Diana I am sure she will try to get her for you! For the criss-cross tag holder, I outlined it with lavender half pearls, adding pearls to soften all corners also. For the tag I used Stickle covered lavender roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprigs of MS branches, and a lavender organza ribbon holding a parasol charm. At the bottom of the tag I embossed a Cornish Heritage Farms HELLO with eggplant EP.
For the inside of the card, the first panel is simply a couple of lavender organza Bow-Easy flat bows holding a couple of silver parasols.
For the jotting panel I replicated a much smaller criss cross to hold the jotting tag, adding more lavender half pearls, small lavender roses and a pull of organza ribbon. I apologize for the quality of my pics on this submission but I waited til late in the day to make the pics...sigh
I hope you have enjoyed my creation and will consider joining us at Just Magnolia this week....we would love to see your interpretation of Jeanette's wonderful criss-cross tutorial.
Because I think you are all so wonderful and I haven't done this in about a week, I would love to offer you a chance at some MAGNOLIA SWEET STUFF!!!!
