Winter Edwin - Happy Holidays

I had a very exiting day yesterday, two of the orders from Magnolia had arrived to Cranberry Hill Mercantile at the same time!! I had to try to contain myself and not to spend all my life savings on the new Tilda, Edwin and accessories stamps.. Well.. I got "a few" ;-)

Here is the card that I had in my mind right when I saw this cutest ever Edwin stamp and the Christmas Trees stamp..

I created the oval opening on the blue cardstock with the Nestabilites, then embossed it with the Snowflake folder on my Cuttlebug. I stamped Christmas Trees on the white cardstock, then over stamped it with the Snowflakes stamp (also from Magnolia), and added stickles. The blue layer is raised on pop-up dots for dimension.

Edwin was stamped on the white cardstock, colored with Copics and then cut out. I added white Liquid Applique to Edwin's Santa Hat and on the top of his shoes. I used pop-up dots to place Edwin onto the card.

The dew drops in the corners.. I colored the clear dew drops on the flat side with the red Copic Marker... I just love how you can make them any color you need so easily!!

I made snowflakes from white cardstock using the Cuttlebug die-cut, then added Stickles all over them.

I used the same snowflakes stamp on the white layer inside of the card, then stamped the greeting.

If you would like to get your hands on Tilda and Edwin stamps, stop by the
Cranberry Hill or give them a call at 408-736-9151 (they can even mail you the stamps!!). Tilda, Edwin and their accessories stamps won't be there for long, the first shipment has sold out in two days!!

OMG! This is the cutest card! I love the Liquid Applique. I've never used it but I'm definitely going to get some because it ends up fluffier than flocking.

I've looked for the Tilda and Edwin stamps online because I'm in a different part of the country, but I've only found them on international sites. Do you know if Cranberry Hill would mail them if I purchased them over the phone?

Oh my god, I was there yesterday when they were putting them out, there were so many to choose from, that I couldn't make up my mind and had to leave.

They are all so cute, I did have my eye on Edwin, though.....
