Christmas All Year Long - Magnolia Blog Hop - November 2010

Welcome to the last Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop, it is November 25th and that means an awesome Blog Hop!  If you arrived from Cheryl Rowley's blog, you are on the right track.  If not pop on over to Magnolia-Licious Christmas All Year Long Blog and start at the beginning, you don't want to miss any of these magnificent creations.  I am honoured to be in a Blog Hop with all these talented crafters,
My creation for this month features "Tilda With Violin" and "Silent Night Background" stamps.  Here is the front of my card:

I used all Stampin' Up! supplies except for the Tilda and background stamp.  I stamped Silent Night on Very Vanilla cardstock in Basic Black.  The layer with the leaves punched out is Very Vanilla and the leaf punch I used is a Fiskars, I punched up each side of the Very Vanillla Layer.  Then I used a layer of retired Stampin' Up! DSP in Rich Razzleberry, which is the colour of the card base.  For Violin Tilda I stamped her in Basic Black on SU Watercolour Paper and heat set it with my heat tool.  Then I used Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Pen to colour her (I will include the colours at the end of this post).  I put some Star Dust Stickles on her wings, and Crystal Effects on her shoes (what little girl does not love black patten leather shoes).
For the flower, I saw somewhere on the internet where a talented stamper had used the Stampin' Up! set "French Foliage" to make a poinsettia flower.  So that's what I did ....

 I inked the leaf stamp in Rich Razzleberry and stamped it 11 times on Whisper White cardstock (you could also use Shimmery White).  I used an Aqua Painter and coloured the "center" of the flower petals, then put them together in the flower shape.  I used another French Foliage stamp for the leaves, and stamped them in Old Olive onto Old Olive cardstock, then I spritzed them liberally with Champagne Mist Shimmer Spritz - ooh lala, the bling!  The bow is made from Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon, also Stampin' Up!  I assembled the card and embellishments, then went to work on the flower with more Star Dust Stickles.  When those dried I added lots of SU Basic Pearls in the centre, and one on the center of the bow.  Tilda is popped up on Dimensionals.  Here is an up close picture of Violin Tilda ... ... ...

And for the inside I used the leaf punch again, and a stamp from Bells and Boughs set in Old Olive.  I used some Magenta Stickles for the holly berries.  The sentiment is also Stampin' Up! and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

Now for the colours I used for Miss Tilda:
Dress - Rich Razzleberry
Shoes - Basic Black
Skin - Blush Blossom
Cheeks - Pretty In Pink
Hair - So Saffron, Creamy Caramel, Close To Cocoa
Violin - Creamy Caramel, Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Thanks for hoppin' by today, the next stop on the Blog Hop is Jessica Hammond.  I know you will love what she has awaiting for you.  Have a super day, and Happy Stampin' ....  Glenda Mollet
