Magnolia DT Card~ Magnolia INK #2 Magazine Front Page Card~Tilda Chasing Butterflies~How to make a Magnolia Tilda Card

GOSH!! The title is super long :-)) Oh my...I have waited too long to show you this card which featured on the front page of Magnolia INK #2 Magazine.....have you seen that?? I bet you have...but today I want to show you the whole card and a tutorial how to make a Magnolia Tilda card:-))

The card is very simple indeed and took me an afternoon to complete's easy and simple to make a pretty-Scandinavia-Magnolia long as you know some tips....OK, here we go....
All Materials from Magnolia rubberstamps, Sweden,except Ice stickles from Ranger, pearls from Prima Marketing
A) Tilda:
1) Stamp Tilda and flowers on Neenah white paper as the picture shown, you can stamp them on any white color paper as long as the color do not blur when you do your coloring.
2) Color Tilda with any color medium that you are comfortable with. For this Tilda,I colored it with Steadtler Color Pencils, blended with paper stumps and sansodor.
3) I used Vintage Photo distress ink to color the soil, add more water if you want light color and vs.
4) Stamp butterfly on the left hand side of Tilda. Stamp again on scrap paper, color it and cut out.Glue on the stamped butterfly, fold a bit to make it dimensional.
5) Sponge the edges of whole white paper with Vintage Photo distress ink ( this is my favourite color:-) and sponge more inside the card.
6) Mat the white paper on a light green cardstock, slightly bigger than it. Set aside...waiting to be use cute Tilda;-))
(B) Label
1) Stamp Label on the Neenah white paper. Sponge Vintage Photo distress ink on it. Write some wording...I copied from Internet. Set a side.
(C) Card base ( I am so sorry that I totally forgot about the sizes of all the papers I used on this sorry)
1) This is a 6"x6" card. I use burgandy color cardstock as the base.
2) Cut the ladybug patterned paper slightly smaller than 6"x6". I think maybe 5"x5"...oh...I really forgot...
3) Cut the green patterned paper bigger than the light green cardstock that you set aside before (that has Tilda on it)..Punch the right hand side with Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch.
4) Cut three burgandy gingham ribbons and adhere on the back of light green cardstock as shown on the picture. Two ribbons at the upper side and one on the bottom.
5) Mat the light green cardstock on the green patterned paper.
6) Place two ribbons( polka dot burgandy ribbon and sheer burgandy ribbon) on the ladybug patterned paper.
7) Adhere the whole green patterned paper( there has light green cardstock with Tilda on it) on the ladybug patterned paper ( with two ribbons on it).
8) Adhere the stamped label beside the green patterned paper.
9)Place all the flowers, leaves, rhinestones,pearls as shown on the picture. I punched the leaves with Martha Stewart punch.
10) Put some Ice stickles on flowers, label and butterfly.
Viola ! You have your very cute Magnolia Tilda card.
Some tips for you:
!) Use light patterned papers. Magnolia patterned papers are recommanded.
2) Use flowers.....
3) Use distress inks to sponge the edges of papers....Vintage Photo, Antique linen, tea-dye ...
4) Use rhinestones, pearls, stickles to make it more elegant and stunning.
5) If able, make the card full with layers......

Magnolia DT card~~You are special...and some report

Hi my dear friends,
Here is another weekend :-)) Phew....I am so tired after the Singapore trip from 13-16/3. We have been to many interesting places for my kids, for example Singapore Zoo, Singapore Flyer,Sentosa and Science Centre. My kids had so much fun and for older kid( my hubby and I ) we were so tired as we didn't have much energy like our kids:-)) hahaha....Here I share two of the pictures that we took at Singapore Flyer and Singapore Zoo.

Back to the card that I made today...well, I have so much inspiration to make cards after I back from Singapore too...I met Yenni Natalia, a Singapore cardmaker and she brought me to my candy stores~~~ rubberstamps/scrapbooking stores like Made of Love, Laines Paperie, Junior de Artist and Spotlight in Singapore, I wish that I could bring all the supplies back to my room.
This card I made with my last Magnolia DT kit, except daisy flowers given from my dear DT Tab from England, when I purchased some supplies from her, she is so sweet and I am so satisfied with her fast delivery.The creamy lace is so yummy which I bought from Singapore:-)
Hope that you have a very pleasant weekend and thank you for your viewing!

Oh..I really don't understand the education system nowadays although I am a teacher!!! HAHA !!! LOL

OK, here is a card that I made without Tilda. Magnolia's accesorries stamps are great and we can make the cards with or without accompany of Tilda too...( not like my son...always need my accompany to encounter his exam...LOL...)

This stamp is from Right Through My Heart Collection and you can purchase here.All the materials sent by Magnolia to me . Can you see the chandelier garlands?It's so beautiful and it's the newest embelishment from Magnolia, I think you can purchase from many online stores if you aren't live near with Magnolia shop, Boras, Sweden.
And...this is my first time to color using distress inks:-)) I had so much FUN !!
Until next post hope that you have a great day !
