Magnolia Stamp Lovers - challenge #2

This post will remain at the top until Jan. 31, 2010.

I am hosting my first challenge over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers and am so excited because I was able to announce the awesome prizes that our sponsor, Cindy Echtinaw owner of Stamping Scrapping, has offered up. Wait until you hear this!

There are two great prizes for this challenge. There will have one grand prize winner who will win a one years subscription to the new Magnolia Ink magazine! There will also have a runner up that will receive the Tilda with Lilacs stamp.

With such awesome prizes there has to be a requirement right? There is and it is easy-peasy. Enough said, take a hop over to the blog and take a look.

Here is the sketch we are using:

and here is my take.

I used Standing Tall Tilda. She is available for pre-order over at Stamping Scrapping and can be found here. I stamped her onto Neenah 80 lb cardstock (which I am in so much love with!!). I was using GP cardstock from Wal-mart and after purchasing some Neenah I can never go back. It is amazing how a different paper can feel when using your favorite coloring technique.

Here is a close up.

I added a little red flower to her hat for some added dimension and besides, I just like the flower ... lol. I used my Mega Curved Spellbinders for her mat. For the red one I traced around the same Nestability and then hand cut, I only wanted a small border around her.

For the inside I used the same DP - Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and placed a journaling mat.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Don't forget to go on over to Magnolia Stamp Lovers and check out the challenge .... see you there!

Cute card, Stephanie -- and with the weather as cold as it is, Tilda certainly needs to be bundled up! Nice layout, too.
