Claudia's Sketch - my Tilda Card

Edited to add.. This card is now available as a Class Kit, please click here for more information.

I was visiting Claudia's blog today as I do every single morning, she made this gorgeous card with one of the new stamps from Magnolia's Fall release and has also posted a sketch. I already knew which stamps I was going to use to make a card today and already picked the papers, and thought that Claudia's design would be perfect for my card. I had to rotate the sketch a little bit to fit my card better. Love, love, love how this one has turned out!!!

This card measures 6" x 6".

I combined stamps from different Magnolia collections on this card. The Luggage stamp is from the newer Travel collection, and Flower Jeans Tilda and Rufus are from the older ones.

I stamped suitcases on brown Bazzill cardstock with orange peel texture because it has kind of like leathery look to me. I then colored it with Copic Markers and added some detail with Gold Zig Painty. I also used Gold Zig Painty to add "stitching" to the ribbon.

Tilda was colored with Copic Markers and then cut out. Her blouse and the cuffs on the jeans are paper pieced with the background paper.

Rufus was colored with Copic Markers, cut out and placed inside of the card.

Printed paper is from Cosmo Cricket. The greeting is by Hero Arts.

All the supplies used on this card ( stamps, Copic markers and the paper) are available at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. Cranberry Hill Mercantile is not an online store, but you can place your order over the phone at 408-736-9151 and it will be shipped right to your door.
