Magnolia, Edwin in Miami…

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

What a cute kid!  Edwin and his big tennies just make a gal smile!  Right now he’s Edwin in Miami… I’ve never been to Florida!  Do I need to go there?  I’m not a fan of swimming or relaxing even.. unless it’s reading a book!  If there were stamp stores to visit…hehe

This is my card for Tilda’s Town Challenges this week… create a card for a man or boy and use Edwin!

I used a Sweet Stop Sketches Sketch #165

Linking to the following challenges…

The Stamp Man – anything goes/summer colors
Paper Crafting Journey – Summer
Fab ‘n Funky  – Summer Holiday
Midweek Magnolias – Let’s look at Edwin

Edwin is stamped on Papertrey white select card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.
Hair E50, 51, 53, 55, 57
Skin E0000, 000, 00, 11 and E30 for cheek color
Shirt BG000, 01, 02
Shorts E40, 41, 42, 43
Shoes  N00, 0,3,5

Martha Stewart Beach shell border punch (no longer available)  in orange card-stock and EK Success Wave border punch in blue green.

Nestabilities label die and don’t ‘ya love the layers… perfect layers tools are so awesome for creating layers…HERE’S my video where I’m showing how they work…. be sure you use a full size Xacto knife/craft knife!

Super cute little puffy stickers from EK Success.

I used Broken China and Antique linen Distress inks and the ink blending tool to add color to the background while the cut was still in the die.  I leave the cut in the die and flip it over and go around the edge with my embossing stylus to deepen the embossing… I show how to do this type of embossing while in the die in this video HERE.
