CCT Ch 71 & Stamp with Fun Ch 18

Afternoon all, this is a Magnolia DT card and tag set that are on their way to Sweden as we speak. For them I have used four stamps from the Lazy Summer Days Collection and they are now available to be purchased as single stamps.

I'm going to enter this card in Cute Card Thursday Challenge 71 where the theme is "Let's get fruity" and I have also followed the fabulous sketch from Stamp with Fun Challenge 18.

I decided to make a simple matching tag for a bit of fun. I cut out tilda, coloured her with distress inks, sat her on some ribbon and raised her up on foam pads for a bit of dimension.

For my card, the base and DP all came in my Magnolia DT kit. For the main image, firstly I stamped tilda, then masked her and stamped the strawberry image to make it look like she is sitting on the strawberry. I also stamped the beach flowers, cut them out and raised them up on foam pads for my embellishments. All my images are coloured with distress inks and for the sentiment I used whispers pens to ink up the stamp.

Card/Paper: All from my Magnolia DT kit
Stamps: Magnolia - All from Lazy Summer Days Collection
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, vintage photo, worn lipstick, faded jeans, fired brick, spiced marmalade, weathered wood, black soot, peeled paint. Inksenntials pen, whispers pens for the sentiment
Embellishments: Ribbon
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, water brush, MS doily lace punch, corner rounder punch

  11. Gracias Liza, por tu mensaje. La verdad es que me llena de orgullo que artistas consolidadas como vosotras, que tanto admiro, me dediquen un espacio de su tiempo para hacer un comentario a algo que yo hago y no le doy importancia, porque siempre me parecen mal hechos. Me ha llamado mucho la atención que eres del mismo horóscopo y edad que mi hija, nacio en 1977.
    Ahora lo importante, he visto solo un poco tu blog y vuelvo a repetirme, eres una gran artista, en una tarjeta que es pequeña, que puedas introducir tantos detalles, preciosos, el colorido de los stamp perfectos y la coordinación y gusto al elegir los colores, pues me parecen increibles. Seguiré tu trabajo a ver si así aprendo. Saludos desde Tenerife.

  12. Liza, this is gorgeous! I love your coloring and that paper is yummy!
    Blessings, Maria
