Tilda: Home Sweet Home



Good morning everyone,

Before I talk about my card today, I have some exciting news to share. This Saturday, I am taking a copics class with Suzanne Dean. Her coloring is amazing, check out her blog here: http://www.scrapbitz.blogspot.com/. I'm so excited to learn from her. Suzanne is also giving away some great blog candy on her blog so be sure to check that out.

Okay, onto my card for today. I just can't get enough of these adorable Magnolia stamps :) I'm sorry this picture isn't the greatest, it's another dreary day here today and it was difficult to get a good picture this morning. Also, I promise, in real life, the card isn't crooked (I have no idea why it looks crooked in the picture) :)

I stamped the Tilda and the house (also from Magnolia stamps) onto GP cardstock, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I used an exacto knife to cut open the door of the house. I then ran a piece of SU's Brocade Blue through the cuttlebug using a swirly embossing folder, then mounted that onto SU's Regal Rose and then mounted that onto SU's So Saffron.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Brocade Blue and layered on top of that So Saffron folowed by Regal Rose, followed by DP from Me and My Big Ideas. I used SU's Ticket Corner punch on the corners and placed pearls from Michael's in the conrers. I used some pink ribbon from Michael's and tied a bow and adhered that on the left hand side of the card base. I then adhered the smaller panel to the card base using dimensioanls. I then adhered the house to the panel using dimensionals and then I adhered Tilda using dimensionals. I added glitter to Tilda's wing using my Sakura glitter pen.

The sentiment is from PTI's Boards and Beams set. I inked it in Versafine black onyx ink and stamped it onto Brocade Blue. I then layered it onto Regal Rose followed by So Saffron. SU's Ticket Corner punch was used on the corners and I adhered the sentiment with dimensionals.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs,

Christine :)

What a great card. I love all the layers and how you've used the two stamps together! Lucky you to me able to have lessons with Suzanne. She certainly knows how to use Copics! Hugs Jeanette
