Tilda with Straw Hat at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge!!!



Happy Friday to everyone!!! I hope you have had a magnificent week and are ready for an even better weekend!! Aren't weekends always better??? This may just be a great weekend for some planting and digging in the dirt!!! Wooohoooo!!!

This week at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are celebrating our 2 year Anniversary with a BIRTHDAY theme and would love for you to have a peek at the marvelous submissions by the DT and then decide to join in with us where there is a MAGNIFICENT prize from one of our AMAZING Sponsors, Simon Says Stamp! You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as you have followed the Birthday theme and the main image on your creation is a hÄnglar & stÄnglar or Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fabulous prize. And remember NO back linking; new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday, 21st April.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and for all double matting--the backgrounds are all machine stitched. The floral DP is from Lilac Mist and the gingham is from the Gorgeous Ginghams, both collections from Wild Rose Studio. I have also used the darling little Tilda With Straw Hat from the new Butterfly Dreams Collection at Magnolia-licious and it is available!!! This is one cutie that can be used for so many occasions!! She was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, adding a bit of Prisma Glitter to the butterfly and Star Dust Stickles for some additonal sparkle, before cutting out with triple Nesties. For the horizontal I used a pink grosgrain topped with a sparkly purple ribbon with bow tied into a double flat bow before adding a couple of Hip Rosebuds from WOC. The lovely Lace is also from WOC. The upper floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts also: 40mm Trellis Rose, 25mm Open Roses, Poppy Stem Flowers and more Hip Rosebuds. The circular sentiment is a brand new LOTV Clear Additions which is now available in the LOTV shop...gosh there are so many new stamps in this range!!! After stamping the sentiment, I added a touch of coloring with Copics and added some Rhinestones. The front was finished with Pearls to soften the corners.



On the inside I used a gingham square in the center of the first panel to anchor the bow and dangling silver heart charm. On the second panel I used another sentiment from the A5 Verses sheet, adding tiny Rhinestones to the corners of the jotting panel.

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to show us your birthday themed card/project over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge! Thank you so very much for dropping by today and I hope you will come by often! Tomorrow, Saturday, I will have WINNER, WINNER, WINNER and on Sunday we will again have a marvelous surprise at SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious. Hope you have a wonderful day and until the next time, I send BIG HUGS!!!

Hi Jacque, hope you're having a wonderful day!! This Tilda is so adorable (aren't they all!) and looks so cute in these colors. What a pleasure for the eyes! I'll be thinking about you out in your garden this weekend enjoying the beautiful weather. I'll be making 4 retirement cards for deans in the college I work for - one is the dean of the college. If you have any brilliant ideas, give me a holler - the creative side of my brain will be working overtime. Hugs to you, Sharon :o) smarch@wildblue.net

Traci S. said...

Hi Jacque~

Hoping you have fun digging in the dirt! That is not my particular cup of tea...but having a cup of tea while making cards is!

This card is so precious! I love the image. It would make a beautiful little girl Easter card, too. Your coloring just amazes me...how you get into the tiniest of spaces, and make them part of all of that "specialness!" I love the paper you chose...lilac is so pretty in my opinion...and the flowers look amazing. You put so much time and love and goodies into every bit of your cards...inside and out. I bet it is like you...goodness and beauty--inside and out! Praying for Sunshine for you!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
