Gungande Tilda Sends Birthday Greetings!

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Sunday to each of you! I hope this post finds each of you well and rich with creative ideas! Today begins a new challenge at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog. The theme for this challenge is very easy! It's…


Here is a photo of my card. I hope it will provide some inspiration for you. We'd love it if you joined the Flowers Challenge!

This is an older Tilda stamp. It is called Gungande Tilda which means Rocking Tilda when translated to English. I just love the stamps designed like this one. They are just so sweet! I do have a brand new, unused, stamp of this image. I bought it twice. If you are interested in purchasing it from me, please let me know.

I love round cards. This card turned out so nicely. I rimmed the mat on which Tilda has been stamped with a string of pearls. I also added a teeny tiny pearl to the center of each flower on the swing. A bit of pink seam binding, and a pearly flower center finish the embellies. The pearly pink center embellie was white, but I colored it with a pink Copic marker. I added a doily and elevated one level on pop dots.

Here are the interior shots:

On the interior, I repeated the doilies, added a little butterfly with pearl head, pink seam binding ribbon, birthday charm, and another Magnolia stamp. Oh, I also inked the edges of EVERYTHING in a pink color! LOL

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that I've provided some inspiration for you. We would really love to see you join the Flowers Challenge at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog.

I appreciate the time you took to stop by. I would love if you left a little love for me! LOL

Magnolia Home Tweet Home Little Bird Card

Hello Dearest Readers,

I hope this post finds you well and enjoying Spring! It's been "fun" here with our goofy weather! LOL We'd had a 25° drop in temperatures from the day before! One day, we had our air conditioner humming away keeping out the 80+ degrees that was outside. The next day, we had to turn on the heat!

Today is Team B's turn to share their inspiration cards for the Spring into April Challenge! You can find the details and other gorgeous inspiration cards at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog If you haven't stopped by, please do! We would love for you to enter the challenge.

For my card, I chose to use a bird theme. I used the most precious Magnolia bird stamps as well as the Home Tweet Home stamp from the Pink Lemonade Collection. One set of birds used is Little Birds. You can find it HERE. The second set of birds is from the Sea Breeze Collection. The set is called Little Summer Birds.

Here is the image for the front of my card:

Also on the card front, I've used the Magnolia Lovely Fence Die, two sweet birds from Doohickey Kit #3, and Sneaky Tilda from the Animals of the Year Collection.You can find this stamp HERE.

Additionally, the front features lace, tiny blue rhinestones (in birds' eyes), pop dots under sentiment. flowers, and ribbon.

Here is a photo of the interior:
