Hello friend!   Missed you yesterday and will make up for it today with a tad of info! Did you ever go to a Stampin’ Up party? For those who have never heard of Stampin’ Up…it is a company that makes paper craft products and they sell those products to demonstrators.  The demonstrators show you the products by doing home parties….like Home Interiors or Tupperware!  I went to one a few weeks ago and they have everything! From card stock, stamps, ink, crafting tools and the list goes on!  They were demonstrating a Stamp-a-ma-jig at the one I went to!  No lie, that is the name of it!  The Stamp-a-ma-jig  allows you to stamp precisely where you want every time you stamp.  Did you ever make a card, and the last thing you had to do was stamp your sentiment and you missed the spot?  I, personally have ruined quite a few cards that way. Well,  that does not happen with Stamp-a-ma-jig. The best way to understand is to watch this video! It is really an awesome tool and everyone should have one. By-the-way you can also buy Stampin' Up products online now!  Pretty cool..huh!

Today's card was quick and easy and made very, very simple and fast (other words far from my best!). I felt guilty and I sorta got carried away with the pearls trying to make up for it!!! LOL There are 45 pearls on this card and I would bet my bottom dollar you are going to count them!! Tilda's foot is hiding one!  Any how I made this card for the Copic Challenge at Simple Scrapping Crafts. The challenge is coloring skin.   They also teamed up this week with the card challenge team! Confusing right? Simple Crafting has 28 challenges per month and two of these challenging DT teams, teamed up together.  This is one awesome blog with tutorials, samples gallery and a whole lot of learning and teaching!
The card stock was cut with a scallop Nestability after I folded my card stock in half the circle was placed slightly over the fold. After it was cut I had a scallop circle card.  Easy!

Meet Tilda from Magnolia's Stamps. Most people including myself do not like Tilda when you first see her. The question is asked;  where is her mouth and nose? Let me warn you...she grows on you!! There are literally thousands of people coloring Tilda every day to post on Magnolia blogs! And she isn't just in the USA...she is big time all over the world! No lie!!!  There is no glitz  or creativity on this card, I wanted to show you another way you can use the Nestability Die.  Although,  I still had to add my  Diamond Glaze! and the pearls...are you counting them?  Thank you very much for taking the time to look!

Adorable card! I love Stampin' Up!! so fun!! And some friends did research and discovered that Magnolia's--Tilda's don't have mouths because their angels and angels speak with their hearts not their mouths. :-) Have a happy day!

Colleen - Your card is fantastic and "Tilda as a Ballerina" is one of my FAVORITE Magnolia stamps, and as you know I have lots of lots of Magnolia images, thanks to a wonderful friend!!

You also made your "round" card the same way I made most of mine, with the Nestie Dies. I also do use my Cricut, but making them with the Nesties is easy and FUN!! :)

I can also say that I think SU's Stamp-a-Ma-Jig is a great little tool and tool that every stamper should own. It was one of the first things I ever bought from US and I LOVE IT and think every stamper should own one. I also LOVE SU products and I have a friend, Cindy, who is an SU demno. I have bought several things from her online store and was so happy when she started selling the product line.

THANK YOU so much for every thing....and I mean EVERY thing!!


Time of day
