Hi there & today it's time for another challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia. This time the theme is 'Dies', so we'd like to see your prjects with 2 or more dies used - infact the more the merrier! We are very lucky to have 2 great shops sponsering the challenge this week and they are...
...The Rubber Buggy...
This is a brand new store stocking beautiful shabby & vintage items, as well as some great stamp ranges including Magnolia & Saturated Canary. You really must head over using the link above to check out this fabulous store as I can see it soon becoming a popular crafty supplier!
...and Live & Love Crafts...
This is a relatively new store that is fast becoming a popular craft stockist, easy to see why with their beautiful shabby & vintage items, they have some great deals on Magnolia background stamps as well as those gorgeous but sometimes ellusive (depending which country you live in!) Maja Design & Pion design papers, kort & godt flowers, pretty embellishments, Prima products and much more.
So withou further ado...onto my card...
I used Tilda with chicken and egg from the new Little Easter collection & teamed her with Happy Easter background stamp from the same collection and coloured with Distress Inks. I wanted to do a really soft, pastel colour scheme just right for those Spring makes so I used my Maja Design Vintage Summer collection papers. I just hope the weather catches up to us - it was actually snowing here the other day!
The lovely cardstock (used for the die cuts and matting the image topper) is the Core'dinations Whitewash collection. It's so pretty - lovely soft, muted, pastel colours that compliment these papers & the Distress Ink pallette so well. You can then sand the edges to reveal the more deeper of the colour core, which gives a shaded effect, simelar to inking edges.
Flowers are from The Ribbon Girl & butterfly is from a Pion Design cut out sheet, as are the mini-alphas spelling 'CUTIE'. The tab is Magnolia Doo Hickey So Wrapped die cut and I have trimmed the heart section off then folded around the image to create a tab. Butterfly edge is a Tim Holtz Alterations on the edge die, cut from Core'dinations whitewash cardstock - edges have been sanded to create a shaded effect.
(above) The hindges are a Tim Holtz Alterations die cut, I've used the bottom end and made 2 from the same whitewash card, sanded and set them with antique gold brads. (below) I made the sentiment from Adler typewriter font and printed onto plain white card. I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink & matted them onto kraft cardstock with foam pads, then attached over a Spellbinders Nestabilities circle die.
