Hello Dear Readers,
I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with the joy of family and/or friends! I also hope your tummies were full and your blessings are many! I am blessed because you are here reading my blog. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I have a new card to share with you today. I hope you like it. It took me quite a while to do this one. There were so many details (in and out)that just seemed to take hours to accomplish to my liking. Here it is:
Oh, this was my vision the second I saw this particular Tilda stamp! I combined her with two other stamps. Both are additional fireplace stamps. The mantle is a Magnolia stamp from a while ago, and I have no idea where I got the actual hearth stamp. I've just had it tucked away. I want to say Alota Rubber Stamps, but I'm not certain.
Tilda's dress has sparkles on it as does the green stocking hanging from the mantle. The fire inside the fireplace has also been finished off with various shades of Kindyglitz. I wonder if they still make Kindyglitz? Years ago, I bought a bottle of every color they had. This was way before Stickles came into being. So, the fire inside the fireplace looks so cool with varying shades from deep red to warm yellow.
I added Snow Tex, Puffy Paint, Fran-tage, die cuts, lace, velvet paper, pop dots (upper part of the fireplace as well as Tilda have been elevated to give dimension. I also used deep green velvet paper - afterall, Tilda needed to be standing on carpeting, right? The stars are also made from the same paper. A jingle bell, ribbon, green twine, flowers, berries, and a doily finish the front.
Here is a closeup of the fireplace:
