Secret Tilda - Magnolia Card

The town we live in, Port Alberni, BC, is a very foggy part of the world during the winter.  So I set out to make a happy, sunny card using Secret Tilda, Fairytale Background, and Two Tulips.  I dug out my stash of retired Stampin' Up! Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper and created this card .......

 

I used the Mojo Monday 170 sketch for this card.  I stamped Secret Tilda first on Stampin' Up! Watercolour Paper using Basic Black Classic Ink, then masked her and stamped the Fairytale Background over top.  The Two Tulips stamp was stamped on a separate piece of WC paper and cut out after colouring. I coloured the scene with my Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Pen.  Kaleidoscope DSP has some retired colours in it, so I had to dig out my retired markers.  I also used Gable Green cardstock and the Little Leaves Die to make the leaves behind the Two Tulips. The fluffy clouds have some Liquid Applique on them.
Here is a close up picture of Secret Tilda ......

and a close up view of the entire scene .........


This is a picture of the tulips I stamped on the envelope and the left hand side of the card  ......


And finally a look at the inside of the card.  I used a nestability to make the frame thing around the area for writing, and added a couple of Basic Rhinestones for some bling.  Then I hand cut out some flowers from the DSP, and put some Basic Pearls on them.  I cut the DSP so it looks like a sunburst ...... 


 I have so much fun creating this little gems, and over the holiday season I hope to get more done.  I get to let my creativity flow and use lots of items on them.  I know most of the products I used on this card is Stampin' Up!, but I did try to add some non SU flowers and ribbon and trinkets, but it just did not look right.  Maybe next time!
I hope your Christmas was awesome yesterday, and today you get a chance to rest and relax now that it is all over for another year.  Yummy leftover turkey sandwiches mean NO COOKING today!
Happy Stampin', thanks for visiting ...........  Glenda Mollet

We are buried under about a foot of snow, which is unusual for coastal North Carolina. I am so ready for it to be gone. Your card brought a smile to my face. It gave me a renewed hope for Springtime! Thanks....I needed that!!!
