A Little Love

Hello!! Well, we've made it to another Friday and today, I'm showing a card I made for The Town Scrapper. Phebe carries so many terrific stamp lines, one of which is Magnolia. I so love these stamps!! "Jam Tilda" from the "Yummy for your Tummy" line is one of my all time favourites! She is just so pretty! I can't tell you how happy I was the day she arrived at Phebe's store!

I really love white cards, however I rarely attempt to make them...I find them really difficult! Thought I'd give it another go with this one though, after'll never get better if you don't keep trying, right? I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder with my Cuttlebug to add some texture to the white panels. For a splash of colour, I added some red cardstock for matting, and a scalloped circle of some Sugar Rush paper from Basic Grey (available right now at The Town Scrapper!) cut with my Nesties. Those lovely swirls were cut with my newest Nesties set, Doodle Parts. Phebe carries many of these terrific products...she ordered the Doodle Parts (and Flower Creations) Spellbinders for me, and you would not believe how quickly she received them! So, even if Phebe does not have a certain set you are looking for, she can easily order them for you!

Tilda was stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. Although I went with a bit of a Valentine's theme, I think you could give this card to a loved one any time of the year!!
