Magnolia Card - Tilda (new) - Mojo Monday 172

Ahhhh, I had such wonderful time creating this card.  I love it when I get time to create a card just because.  I wanted to make a card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 172.  I love these sketches, they work so well with all different kinds of cards.  Here is the card I made this week .... .... .... ....

This is one of the new Magnolia stamps that I got recently.  This Tilda is not even released yet so I don't know her name.  She is one of the cutest ones so far, tho.  I love the balloon.  I stamped her with half of Open Gate from the 2010 Hoppy Easter Collection.  When I got this stamp, I cut it in half so I could use it singly, or spread it apart further.  Here is a different view .......

You can see a bit of the 3D effect I did on the flowers that are growing up the fence.  I stamped the 3 open buds again on watercolour paper, coloured them and popped them up on dimensionals.  Then I added a teeny, tiny pearl to the center of each one.....


I punched a piece of Orchid Opulence cardstock with a MS punch (the latticey one) then slipped a piece of Old Olive cardstock behind the lattice part.  Then I ran some Old Olive 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the card.  Tilda was stamped on watercolour paper using StazOn black ink, then I coloured her with Stampin' Up! Markers and an Aqua Pen using a watercolour technique.  Then it was time to cut her out. I used the "out of the box" technique and the largest round nestability.  The black circle was cut using my Circle Cutter Plus.  Here is a closer view of Tilda .....


I used a mixture of companies for the supplies for this card.
Stamps:  Magnolia - Tilda (new), Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday from Messages For Mom
Ink:  StazOn Black
Designer Paper:  Stampin' Up! Cottage Wall (retired)
Cardstock:  All Stampin' Up! - Naturals White, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence (retired), Basic Black, Watercolour paper
Other:  Punch - Martha Stewart: Lattice; Punches - Stampin' Up!: Modern Label, Movers and Shapers Die, Circle Cutter; Nestabilities - largest circle. Old Olive 1-1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Crystal Effects, Basic Pearls, dollar store rhinestones
Colouring: Stampin' Write Markers, Aqua Pen and Watercolour Paper (all Stampin' Up!)
I also did a bit of 3D-ing on the inside. I stamped the Old Olive swirl on Naturals White cardstock, then stamped the flowers in Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry (stamped off once), cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals.  A few Basic Rhinestones were applied to the middle of each flower.......


There you go, another Magnolia creation!  Now I can't wait to get some birthdays so I can start to give these little sweethearts away.  This one will be my Maggie Monday class card in March, so she will be around a bit yet.  If you want to come and create this card, just email me and we can make arrangements.
Bye for now ... ... ...  Glenda Mollet
