Tilda by Magnolia saying Happy Birthday!


Hi everyone! Hope you're having a fabulous week! I don't know why I don't use lavenders and purples more often, cause I truly think the color lavender is gorgeous. So I truly don't understand my phobia for using this color, but I decided to give it a shot and this is what I came up with. This particular stamp, Tilda Holding Lamb, was from the new Easter Collection this spring. Sorry, she's not in stock right now. If you're interested in her, please email Diana at Magnolia-licious. I also used #521 Butterfly Background stamp (which is on sale right now) and the Magnolia paper pack A Little Yummy For Your Tummy collection.



The images are colored with Copic markers. The panels are machine stitched and Tilda is cut out and popped up for dimension. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the silk ribbon from Stamp and Create. That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Sharon share your secret, how do you put out so many beautiful cards so fast. I know you work full time. how do you do it? You must be a speedy card maker. I can take days to make one card. esp when it comes to putting them together. Any tips you can give your old pal? Your cards each and everyone of them turn out just gorgeous! I hope you are having a beautiful day.
Hugs,

Eulanda said...

You are hilarious!! Using an out of stock stamp again. hee hee Also, I get what you are saying about using purples. I hated purple but given the right papers (like Basic Grey Wistera and Bo Bunny Jazmyne) it's amazing what I can come up with. Shocked the heck out of myself for a color I didn't like. This card is so sweet and as usual, love your bow!! Hugs!
