NEW Basic Grey & Tilda!


Happy weekend!    I was so excited to receive the new Basic Grey papers ~ Olivia and Oliver that I just HAD to make a card!   This  brand new gorgeous Tilda was just waiting to see some ink too.    She’s called Tilda with Veil and she is part of the Magnolia Wedding Collection.    All these adorable stamps are available for pre-order at 7 Kids College Fund ~ You really should take a peek at the whole collection ~ they’re cuter than ever! 



As I mentioned I HAD to use these new GORGEOUS papers.   The paper for this card is from the Olivia 6×6 paper pad . . .  all I can say is VERY COOL paper!!    I love each sheet!    Both collections are now in stock and available at 7KCF.

My main mat has been cut with one of the new Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix dies called Movers & Shapers ~ Styled Labels ~ the perfect size for Tilda!   I also added some flourishes cut with another Tim Holtz die ~ Elegant Flourishes ~ using a coordinating green patterned paper also from Olivia.   Did you know these dies work with your Cuttlebug??   Yes, they do!   And, very easily too.

I had fun with this and used some white tulle for the veil on Tilda and across the center of the card, along with some velvet coral ribbon and flowers from my stash.   Tilda was colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals.   

Hope you’re having a GREAT weekend ~ it’s so hard to believe it’s the last weekend of June already!   Thanks for stopping by today.

  4. What a BRILLIANT card! I love the way you’ve done the veil, as most of the cards that I’ve seen featuring this Tilda, just look as if someone’s drawn a line across her face, and you can’t really tell what it’s meant to be. This is PERFECT!
