Feb 12, 2011


I was sooo very excited when my new Magnolia stamps from the latest collection " You Are So Special 2011"- arrived thru the mail from HERE at Bizzy Becs.
I have used the Balloon Backgound Stamp, Loving Border and of course this cutie called Tilda with Big Ribbon, isn't she sweet!!!!!
After a bit of playing this is the card I came up with. The present is an older Magnolia stamp that I just love and use often, I also stamped the balloons twice and then cut them out and then added dimensional magic over the top. The strings are red embroidery Cotton and I have used my Heart nesties behind it all.The paper is from the New Kaiser Collection but this only comes in 12 x 12 size plus   Red glitter cardstock for the  Cuttlebug hearts.The paper lace is German Scrap.
 I decided to stick with the usual Valentine colours of red and White/cream but add a touch of brown.
 Images coloured with Copics- R24-R29 with E37 for depth. E50-E55 for her dress. E44, 43 and E41 for her hair. Spica pens- Chocolate and Sand and Blender"0". Dimensional Magic and embroidery cotton for the balloons.
