Tilda’s Town Magnolia card and some tags…

PamSparksRockingHorseCAL4TT700
Sweet Christmas childhood memories… I’m sure we all had a rocking horse of some kind or other!   This cutie is one of the dies from the Magnolia DooHickeys Club Kit #2, All I Want For Christmas.   It is chock full of cuteness!  Here’s the tag I made with the Santa and border that are also part of  the kit.  Lots of dies for a great price and a little magazine full of ideas too!  OH, almost forgot!  The little lace piece is another die in the kit… see… tons more too!

I die cut the Rocking Horse die from white card-stock and colored it with Copics. The words happy and christmas are from Paper Smooches.

I made this card for Tilda’s Town Challenges this week.  We’d love to have you link up if you’re a Magnolia fan!

Last Friday at our area stamp club meeting we swapped Christmas tags.  I made two and let the gal that got my name choose which one she wanted.

I made a bookmark style tag with Paper Smooches dies and the PTI Tinsel and Tags set and then a Snowglobe style tag with PTI Tinsel and Tags set, the Winter die and snowglobe die.

I used this super cute Skateboard Tilda… she’s been playing hard… she must’ve skinned her knee and forgot to pull her jeans back down! lol  Behind her is the Vintage Swedish Background stamp.

I colored with Distress Markers…her hair got a little dark, oops, I used Vintage Photo first but didn’t like it so I went back and used Gathered Twigs over it.  Next time I’m just going to use Gathered Twigs and see what that looks like.

Her face is a light wash of Vintage Photo and then Tattered Rose,  like I did in a video…under the header photo you’ll find the video tab…pull down.

Shirt  and tennis shoes are Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.  Faded Jeans on the jeans.  Tree trunks are Gathered Twigs.  Grass is Mowed Lawn.  Sidewalk is Pumice Stone.  Skateboard is Shaded Lilac. Sky is Tumbled Glass.

Stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink on Canson Motval 90# watercolor paper.

I cut the scene with some new (to me) Square Spellbinder dies and then floral corners are from Magnolia.  Flower Swirl Corner DooHickeys die.

The finished card is 5 ½ in. square.

I used some of the new dies from Memory Box, very fun!  I LOVE the new Kensington Border, Toulouse Background and Blooming Branch dies.  I did cut the big flower off the Toulouse Background for this card though. I also used the Dancing Butterflies die and Memory Box Spring Greetings rubber stamp.

Have you tried it?  Here’s a video of how I color with Distress Markers on Canson Cold Press watercolor paper.  It’s very basic but if you are curious how to begin, it might be an encouragement to you.

I did make this in HD, so you can click the gear and watch it that way if you want.

Here’s a close up but remember… I was coloring standing up so it’s kinda messier than usual! : )  I think coloring on Cold Press paper has a different look than Hot Press paper for sure and definitely different than Copic coloring.  I have to keep telling my self that it’s ok! lol

I used the new In the Snow Heart Tilda and In the Snow Scarf Tilda.  I just love how they look like they are having a snowball fight!  It’s been too cold here to even think of being outside…now it’s the other extreme! lol  Although if a person hurried, they could build a snowman quick before it melted.

PamSparksInTheSnowTildasClose700

I colored these cuties with Distress Ink markers on Canson Cold Press watercolor paper.  I loved Jay Jay’s card using these two…love her watercoloring with pencils! I had to have them then!  Stamps are great Christmas presents! lol

Here’s the Distress marker colors I used…

Face – tattered rose/worn lipstick on the cheeks
snowballs/sky – tumbled glass
red is all Fired Brick
Green is Peeled Paint
In the Snow Scarf Tilda – Brown is Vintage Photo (hat and pants)  Shoes – Walnut Stain, Hair – Mustard and Vintage Photo
In the Snow Heart Tilda – pants – Faded Jeans,  Shoes – Vintage Photo,  Hair – Antique Linen and Walnut Stain
Ground – Pumice Stone

The tree is a Marianne Designs die… the snowflakes are a pack of embellishments I grabbed while out shopping one day…kinda crazy purchase when you have so many punches and dies already! ugh.  They came in handy today when I needed something quick!

I used the Perfect Layers Tools to mat the image and the red layer.  They are so awesome!  Link on the right in the sidebar.

‘O Holy Night’…looking at this card IRL takes me right to the true meaning of Christmas!   I love this Nativity Collection from Magnolia Rubber Stamps!  Edwin the Wiseman is colored with Distress markers on Canson watercolor paper and has a sparkly coat and crown from the Wink of Stella Clear Brush Glitter marker. I love the Star of Wonder Memory Box dies cut from the Silver Coredinations glitter card-stock too!

Here’s a close up of Edwin…
