Magnolia Tilda With Branches Thanksgiving Card


Hello Dearest Readers,

I hope this post finds you enjoying the cool, crisp air of Fall! Where did October go? I cannot believe we are hauling at light speed toward Christmas! We've had a pretty good summer so far. The mountains are starting to get snow at the higher elevations. I hope we get snow here in the desert this winter. It's so beautiful here when it snows.

Today is Team B's turn to reveal their inspiration cards for the Use Fall Colors Challenge at the Magnolia-lcious Challenge Blog. I had fun with this challenge! I chose to use an older stamp - Tilda with Branches. She goes waaaaayyy back! I bet she is one of the first Magnolia stamps I ever bought! I also wanted to use a lot of texture on this card. So, with that in mind, I used velvet paper in a pretty brown, raffia, feathers, and berries that are covered with crystals. Here are some photos for you:



Here, you can see the whole front. I love the pretty softness of the image. The sentiment has been elevated on pop dots.



Isn't that Tilda adorable? I think she is too cute! On the front of my card, I've done some inking and lots of layering. The image has been colored with distress inks. I just wanted to showcase textures on this card. I love raffia. It's a perfect pairing for the sticks Tilda is holding.

Here is a closeup of the flower cluster:



I had a slight mishap with the feathers, LOL. The ceiling fan in my craft room was on when I emptied the bag of feathers. The tiniest ones went EVERYWHERE! I had to scramble to gather them up as they blew across my scrap table!

Diana will be getting the newest stamp collections in any day now. You can find the Lovely Christmas Collection HERE> The other new collection is called Little Italy which you can find HERE. Since I am of Italian heritage, I was smitten with this collection the minute I saw it! LOL!

Diana also has adorable Stamping Bella stamps which you can find HERE

Well, that's about it! I hope you like my Use Autumn Colors card creation.
