Magnolia Summer Stamp Club is in the house!

My Magnolia Summer Stamp Club arrived yesterday! Woo hooo! Sadly I am completely out of EZmount... pout pout. But I had to work with a few of them for this weeks Tilda & Co. Challenge Blog. This week is a sketch challenge. So I rigged them up to make this card. I just love her in her little bathing suit! And how wonderful is the the pier for her to sit on and dip her toes in the water!






I started out by coloring in Tilda with my Copics and white gel pen. I then dotted her toes with the hot pink Sakura Glaze pen. Common even angels need their toes painted in the summer! I cut Tilda out and then the pier and clouds and sky are then stamped and colored. The water is colored with Twinkling H20's. Love the shimmer. I pop dotted Tilda onto the pier, matted with green and then white card stock and sewed together.






The base is Yellow Bazzill, with a piece of Daisy D's pattern paper sewed together. And then tell me how cute is that flower border? I found this "ribbon" at Walmart yesterday it is little fabric stuffed flowers on a cord. I do think I must go and get a few other colors of this! The sentiment is from Aud Designs and is cut out with my Fiskars Squeeze Punch and colored with a Copic Marker. Turned out kinda summery don't you think?







My second card is for Ismaki Challenge this week, cute sketch make sure to check it out! I needed to make a card to show off some new stamps for my LSS seemed perfect for these cute little Penny Black stamps.




I colored in this image with my Koh-I-Noor pencils... I know shock... didn't use my Copics! Nope used the pencils and some Mineral Spirits, then highlighted with the white gel pen. I matted on light brown Bazzill card stock, the pattern papers are from Making Memories and the green Bazzill Bling has been run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.



I placed everything in order, and doodled the edges of everything. Added the sentiment which is a part of the Penny Black set, and then added two Prima flowers with a mini Making Memories brad button. Turned out pretty cute... even with out my Copics =)





Got to get my day going and I am about an hour late already today... have a great day!
