Happy Thursday!
I decided to start putting my 3CT cards in a separate posts so that I could share the "ingredients" with you...and any other tidbits I had.
For example, if you look at the recipe above this Tilda is called 'Tilda with Hearts'...so where are the hearts you might ask?! Well I like to make my Tilda's earn their keep...and that means that an image designed for Christmas might be used on a wedding card...and a Valentine's image might be used on a birthday card! Originally I had colored the hearts green, pink and yellow. It was cute just that way. But out of the corner of my eye I saw my flower soft and before I knew it I was smearing glue over those hearts and throwing some Flower Soft on there! So now it looks like Miss Tilda was out picking a bunch of flowers for your birthday! I wanted this card geared towards a younger girl (child), so I thought it would be fun to use the Numbers Collage embossing folder on the pink squares. If I had a specific girl in mind I would have place the card stock in the folder so that the appropriate age was visible when I placed it on my card. This is a FUN embossing folder! Great for birthdays!!
Good News!!!! you can get your embossing folder and Tilda with Hearts stamp at Kelly's store!! She is wonderful to do business with. And offers fabtastic prices...did you know she offers 10% off Magnolia stamps EVERY DAY! I know that I sound like a commercial...but seriously, Kelly is just like you and I and wants to offer the best prices that she can on all the goods you want. And GOOD SERVICE.

So what do you think of this weeks 3CT challenge? Are you up for it?! I'll bet you will all come up with great cards! Have fun and don't forget to share your creation with the rest of us!

Have a Fantastical Thurday!

Ila said...

Wow!! this card is Beautiful!!..and the hearts looks great...What a great idea to get double duty out of those magnolia stamps!!...Hugs, Ila

Linda S. said...

Hi Kerry, As someone who is just starting to buy Magnolia's, I am so happy to see examples of how we can make them do double-duty. Other ideas are always welcome. I have been seeing Flower Soft used a lot since CHA in California. I am wondering how it goes thru the mail system, or if we should just reserve it for cards we are handing the lucky recipient?
