Patriotic Tilda

Magnolia Stamp Lover's #13~~  Color combo--red/white/blue
Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash #9 ~~ Sketch below and red/white/blue

Here is Miss Magnolia Dangling Tilda with her basketful of Stars to Celebrate the 4th of July!!!

Blue CS was dry embossed with Sizzix Ornate textured folder.  Used CB music folder on white CS and matted with red CS punched with MS modern garland  border punch and added Viva Decor Iced White Pearl Gems~~used scor-tape for dimension.

Colored with Prisma pencils and Copics!!  Cut out with SB curved rectangle nesties. I was trying to do clouds for background I finished with TH china blue distress ink and prisma pencils and gave it a marbled effect :)  The red mat was embossed with CB swiss dot folder.

Punched out stars with Fiskars punch and glued them into her basket~  oops like all little ones she was losing them along the way:D~~ glitzed them up with stardust stickles.  The stickles were used on her socks, on lace and handle of basket and on ruffles of her shirt. 
Viva Decor Iced white pearl pen was used to make her jewels--hairties, earrings and necklace :)

Sentiment is from Lizzie Anne Designs--used SU brilliant blue marker--punched with SU oval punch--blinged with red stickled heart and Viva decor pearl pen again :))

Close up of Stickled stars and viva decor pearl gems AGAIN!!!  I do LOVE the viva decor pens! As if you can't tell-- LOL!

 MDUC #39~~  Use Polka Dots-- June 13
Just Magnolia week 59~~ Sketch below by Mina-- June 18

Easel Card

Used Mina's Sketch from JM for Front of Card!!
Magnolia's Longing Tilda with a rose bud waiting for Dear Edwin to play her a tune on his Magnolia Piano :)  Used copics on watercolor paper. Added TH tea dye ink lightly to edges of image. Papers are Recollections precious metals brown and SU dp. MS punches bordered the polka dot DP.  Embellished with ribbons, prima polka dotted flowers and blingy/music brads

Message Page: 

used MS border punches again with lite blue rhinestones for holders.  The message area was stamped with a music stamp that was inked with Brillance Cosmic Copper and stamped off before stamping paper to give a faded look under the personal written message.  Finished with Magnolia Berry Tilda colored with Copics and enhanced with Beeswax shimmerz for shine~~oooo i like the shimmerz lately :))  Added a Paper Studio music note brad to compliment front of card :D

Close Ups :))

On the rose bud used Red At You Spica pen for bling.  Used Inkssentials white pen to add white polka dots to Tilda's dress and hairbow.  Glitzed her hairband and dress with Silver At you Spica pen.  Once again used Beeswax shimmerz in her golden hair for shine--hard to see in pics.

WnW Guest Designer Card & MMSC57

My SURPRISE this week was being asked to be the featured guest designer for Wags N Whiskers Challenge Blog.  I feel on top of the world and deeply touched~~~~ Thank You Lacey and DT!!!!!

This week's WnW Challenge is DISTRESSING!!!!    So I went off to sort thru my WnW stamps and got right to work :)  Well........ you all know the saying the seven dwarfs have "Whistle while you work"~~~ mine was......... "Smiling as I work" (tee hee hee hee hee hee hee)  Can you tell how EXCITED  I was!!!!
Enough babbling and now for my card~~~~~~~~~
I needed a sketch to follow so I chose~~MMSC57

Meet Say a Prayer~~ Isn't she just the Sweetest!!!
Say a prayer was stamped twice on Cryogen White Iridescent cardstock from Paper Temptress. I detail colored one image with copics. The other was slightly colored and then I softened the background with TH broken china ink. Popped up detailed image over other. Covered her dress sash with diamond glaze. Gave her wings sparkle with diamond glaze and glamour dust!!

Started with DCWV LaCreme Cardstock--added Cream cardstock stamped with SU Baroque motif using TH antique linen and peeled paint distress ink. Next layer was piece of Prima Daydreams dp. As you see all the paper edges have been distressed using TH distressing tool and then swiped with TH antique linen or peeled paint ink pads.
Then I used the SB Labels 1 nesties to create more dimensional layers for my image. Each layer has it's very own distressed look---I lightly added distress ink to all edges--little hard to see.
This view shows all the dimensional layers :))

Next couple pics are details of embellishments!!

Embellished with Sizzix branch leaves which were distressed with Tattered Angels Creme de chocolat glimmer mist~~mmmm good!! and TH peeled paint distress ink.  The doily was also misted with the chocolat glimmer mist.  Added some Prima flowers and butterflies.  Used Viva Decor Kiwi Pearl Pen for corner pearls and on butterflies:))\

The following:  Finished inside and close ups!!!!!!!!


I just love my new SU Beautiful Wings Embosslit ~~~ I think I would like to be a butterfly in my next life LOL!!!

Embellishments are prima flowers, cherry blossom, Rose bud, Pin with heart bead, butterfly bead and spacer.  Leaves were made with SB fleur de lis pendant die  and then dangling is a WOJ strawberry charm ;)) In opposite corners I used SU ticket corner punch and then nestled in a dew drop.  The beautiful border is done with MS modern garland punch around the page punches :D
