Tilda with Cat

Before I start talking about the new card, I really want to address one issue.. Not an issue really, but I want to make it clear to everyone that I am NOT quitting doing what I have been doing!! I will have my new stamp company, La La Land Crafts, IN ADDITION to teaching classes and making cards with the stamps from other, different companies. The only reason you do not see me making that many cards lately, is because the set up of the new company is very time consuming. But once it is all in order, I will resume to my normal schedule. Hope this answers some of your questions :-) .

The new stamps from Magnolia's Pet Collection are just adorable, I don't think there is one that I don't like!!

This is the second card for my upcoming "Tilda - Pet Collection" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make two cards in this class (plus we will make custom envelopes using the Enveloper. To see the first card please click here. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, July 30th, 11 am to 2:00 pm
Thursday, July 30th, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Please bring foam tape (pop up dots) and your favorite adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30, 10 participants max

Class Kits are available until July 30th, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for this class and/or purchase the Class Kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6".

.. just realized that I put a second watermark right in the middle of the picture, have no idea how it happened.. if you would like to see the card better, please click on the photo to enlarge.. and good thing you can still see the image on the second photo..

I used gorgeous designer paper by Jenny Bowlin, it looks so fresh and clean against ivory cardstock. Tilda was colored with Copic Markers. Ovals were cut and embossed with Nestabilites as well as the label under the ovals. The swirly corners are from Cuttlebug, the same corners on the inside of the card. Martha Stewart punch for the scalloped border. Clean and simple card, a lot of details with no fuss :-).

All of the supplies used to make this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you don't live in the area, you can place your order online (for some of the supplies, including Tilda stamps and the Enveloper) or call the store at 408-736-9151 during business hours to make your purchase.

Also, don't forget about the Blog Candy on my other blog, it includes two stamps from the Magnolia Summer Club, details here.

Irina, this card is gorgeous! Lovely coloring and the swirl corner trims made it very elegant. I don't own any pet collection stamps, your card made me wanting some :o)

I just finished a very clever comment and this "modern" tool wouldn't let me send it to you !

So I said that I was hoping you'd choose the Tilda with CAT. I love their expression. The cat is evidently resigned and accepts the treatment. As for Tilda, she seems to think the cat is too heavy.They are lovable. I'll be there to work on the cards. And now I 'd like to ask you a favor. I've been waiting for the Humming Bird stamp from Inkadinkado to work on the resist emboss card, but Nicole told me today that the stamp has been discontinued. I have everything I need for the card except for the stamp, therefore could you lend it to me for a couple of days? I am very careful with things I borrow. See you soon business Lady, love, doina

I love the way you layered the ivory cardstock on this card. Plus the cuttlebug corners really set it off. Your coloring is just beautiful!
