Magnolia Image Swap

Hello everyone! Do you like those cute little Magnolia images with Tilda and Edwin and their accessories? Would you like to have more? I just received my Magnolia Spring Club order and would love to share with everyone as well as get some new images to try for myself. I've posted this swap on the cricut message boards but thought I'd let all my blog followers know as well. I would love for you to join us. 

All of the details are below. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. As hostess I will be stamping the new not released Midsummer Tilda from the Fairytale collection for each of you. If there's a different one from the collection you'd rather have please let me know and I'll do my best to accomodate.

Description: Any Magnolia image, (Tilda, Edwin or an accessory) stamped with copic compatable ink such as memento, Palette Noir, versafine or Brilliance, (NO staz on ink) on a quarter sheet, 4 ¼” x 5 ½” of quality white cardstock (such as Neenah, Gina K, PaperTrey, etc. NO SU paper please)
If you're not sure of the cardstock or ink please pm me to discuss it. SU paper is known to have a coating that will ruin copic markers so this is the type of thing we want to avoid for everyone
Please write in light pencil on the back of the stamp what kind of ink/paper you used (this is helpful for the ones who color with copics).
Please send clearly stamped, uncolored images only. Any smudged images will be returned to you.

Quantity: 12 you may take as many spots as you like, but must use a different image for each. You will receive 2 images of 5 different stamps plus the hostess bonus.
Postmark date: May 10, 2010
Due IN Hand: May 14, 2010!
Return Date: Images will be swapped and returned on Mon, May 17th.

PLEASE if you sign up, honor your commitment!
Mailing instructions:
Place swap items in a baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, name of image, cricut message board name or ID name if you're signing up from my blog, and swap name on a piece of paper and include in the baggie for identification purposes.
Swap Return:
First Class: Place baggie inside a self-addressed stamped envelope for return mail purposes. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount that it takes to mail to the swap hostess. To insure that enough postage will cover the returned swap items, please include one to two additional stamp which will be returned if not used. If you would like me to use the original envelope, please include a mailing label with your name and address. PLEASE SEND ONLY POSTAGE STAMPS, NO DATED STAMPS OR METERED MAIL.

Place your baggie and SASE envelope inside your mailing envelope and address it to me:
Leave me a comment with a way to contact you for my address when you are ready to mail your images.
*All participants will receive 2 images of Dancing Tilda from the new Spring Club from me. Thanks for playing.
Thank you all in advance for participating!!! I hope that we can all get a variety of images so if possible, I am going to ask for only one person per a particular image. Let me know your name and the stamp you'll be doing.
Thanks everyone and happy swapping

Midsummer Tilda

This may be my favorite one yet of the new stamps. This card turned a little shabby chic and I'm loving it.

The paper is from the Basic Gray line Lemonade and I really think I need to get some more of it. I inked everything up with my cat eye inks and distressing inks. Of course stickles on the headband and a little on her pinafore. She's colored with copic markers and I promise when I get more I will list the colors I use but for now I mix so much because I'm just starting out it wouldn't do anyone much good. The pink strip was punched with a Martha Stewart punch along both sides.

The flower is cut from Forever Young and my cricut with a pearl glued to the center. I tied a charm from the piece of ribbon and called her done.
I hope you like her as much as I do. I'm entering her in the following challenges

Tilda with Bee

I colored another Tilda with a bee because I had this little log I had cut from my cricut and Pooh cart. I thought she'd be adorable sitting on it. It's not as fancy as some of my cards but I think it's nice enough.
I tore and inked the edges of my paper and faux stitched around them. The little flower is a metal brad from Karen Foster collection. The paper is from the Basic Gray Lemonade collection and Daisy D's.

I'm entering her in the following challenges

Tilda, Kiss Me I'm a Prince

What a fun, fun image to color! How could you resist this lil guy? Of course I'd kiss him!!

I colored all the images with my copics. I inked all the edges with my cat eye Chestnut Roan ink to give it an aged feel and of course I couldn't finish without a lil bit of stickles. LOL It added just that touch of bling to his adorable lil crown.

I kept the whole card fairly simple but I think it turned out adorable. I will be giving this to my hubby (my one and only prince) for my birthday. Yep I said my birthday. He gave me these wonderful stamps for my birthday so this is my thank you to him for always being my prince and making all my dreams come true. What a sweetie!!

Here's a close up of Miss Tilda. Isn't she adorable sitting there dreaming of her prince?

Don't forget if you're passionate about Tilda and Edwin to join us in our Magnolia image swap going on now. You can read all the details in a couple of posts down from here so check it out and join us. We have some adorable images (which ones aren't) that I can't wait to try out. I know my shopping list will blossom after this. LOL

Lady Tilda

I've been having a great time coloring my new Magnolia images from the Spring Club. I absolutely love all the images but am bummed because I didn't receive the Tilda with apple. I've contacted Magnolia so hopefully they'll respond soon.

Well on to today's card. I colored her with my copics and added some bling with stickles. I used my cricut again for the following cuts;
scalloped oval - Storybook p.49 then embossed w/the cuttlebug
leaves - Joys of the Season p.68
flowers - Forever Young p.68
I really enjoy my cricut and it's great to be able to use them with my Magnolia stamps. If you haven't tried I encourage you to.

The pearls are from Queen & Co. The patterned paper is K&Co from my stash. I stitched it onto a piece of purple cardstock. The flowers and ribbon was distressed with Tim Holtz distressing ink. I wet the flowers then sculpted and dried them to shape I wanted.
On the inside of the card I used one of the dragonfly stamps and punched it out and then punched a scalloped circle to mat it with.

Don't forget if you're interested in swapping stamped images of Tilda and Edwin I invite you to check out my post here. We'd love to have you join. We already have some great images signed up so don't miss out. This is a great chance to try some images before you buy them. Let's face we know you will. LOL

Bee-utiful Friend Tilda with bee

I made this bee-utiful card for a very bee-utiful friend. I've been wanting to try cutting some background images with my cricut to go with my Tildas for some time and thanks to Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge I did it. I love how it turned out and have so many ideas running around in my head right now to try you wouldn't believe it.

On the inside of the card I stamped and colored the bee then glued a strip of pp along the bottom leaving a section free of adhesive. I then slipped the bookmark in.

Tilda with Bike Happiness Card

I'm so excited I received an order of copic markers and paper today. So of course I colored another Tilda  and couldn't wait to put her together. I colored her with my copics and sponged the background with some blue and green ink for the sky and grass. I really like the effect it gave, suttle but that finishing touch. I used a green marker to put in a few blades of grass. All the paper is from K & Co and is from a long time ago.
