My First Tilda and a Great Featured Stamper!


I was so excited today when I saw the featured stamper...Jesse, aka knightrone! She has a fabulous gallery and I read her blog religiously! I love her style and she always has great layouts and always uses great embellishments! I chose this card to case today because I loved the layout, of course! I was equally excited today to make my first Tilda card. These are made by a company called Magnolia. I got three of these from Cheryl Rowley because she duplicated her purchases and sold them to me. (From the look of her gallery, I think she has ALL of them...LOL!) She also gave me some hints about coloring their faces...E00 for the base, E02 for the shading, and R20 for the cheeks (these are copic marker numbers...thanks so much, Cheryl, for the tip). I chose this Tilda stamp because I'm going to visit my Aunt Vi in the nursing home today and I thought I'd take some flowers to her, so this image was perfect! I started with the dp, which is SU's new Parisian Summer! I love that the new catalog gives you the colors it coordinates with, which was bravo burgundy, so saffron, pink pirouette, and sahara sand. I omitted the sahara sand, but used the other colors. I put glitter on her wings, bow, shirt, socks and shoes and the flower centers as well. I kept pretty much to Jesse's layout, except I put the prima flowers in the corner instead of the hodgepodge hardware and ribbon she used. The sentiment on the inside was perfect for Aunt Vi because she has touched so many with her kindness throughout the years. Congratulations to Jesse and I hope you stop by her gallery or blog to get some inspiration of your own! Thanks for stopping by!
