Tildas and Edwins are here....oh my!!!!


Christmas is coming a little early at my house this year!! And I can't stop grinning....I really can't!! The people in my life just don't get it when I get so excited about stamps!! They accept it, but they don't get it!! Now YOU people, you understand me!! There's just something about a brand new stamp....especially one that you have been WAITING for!!!

Well, on Friday when I heard from my friend Phebe that her order for new Magnolia stamps had arrived..........well, let's just say that BOTH of us were a TAD excited!! More than a tad really, but I don't want to sound like a crazed stamper....which you all probably have guessed about me by now. Oh well!! But I know most of you can relate!!

These stamps are just too adorable for words and this time she ordered some of the awesome additional stamps as well, so I....I mean WE, can make scenes on our cards. She has the Windmill, the House, the Winter Tree and the Fence!! And there are SO many adorable Tildas and Edwins to play with too!!

For today's card I stamped up the Windmill on Fabriano watercolour paper and used my Prismacolour pencils and odourless mineral spirits to colour it. I then stamped it a second time, coloured it and cut out the moving windmill arms and paper pieced them by attaching them to the first windmill using a Prima brad. So it rotates....how cool is that?? The designer paper is by Fancy Pants and obviously I drew all the colours from there. The card base is a Close to Cocoa square and I matted the Windmill on Not Quite Navy cardstock. I also stamped Tilda with the Lantern on watercolour paper and coloured her as well and then cut her out. I added some Stardust Stickles on her wings and hat pompoms. I used the Hi There sentiment by My Favorite Things and added some flowers, button and ric rac, all by Prima. I'm so thrilled with the way this card scene turned out!! It's almost like playing with paper dolls!!

SO my friend Phebe has a whole lot of new Magnolia Stamps in the store but in limited quantities. She is happy to take email or phone orders, so feel free to email me if you would like her contact info.

"Crazed" had such a negative note, I prefer "enthusiastic!" That is such an adorable stamp and I love the scene that you created with it!
