Accessories make the card!

Hello!
Yep, we're making our cards with accessories ONLY! It's a Magnolia-licious Blog Hop with that "theme" in mind! I cannot wait to see what the other designers have done! I expect the cards will all be so different from each other! If you came here from very talented Sharon Caudle's Blog . If not, you may want to jump back and start at the fabulous Jacque Beddingfield's blog and roll from there!

Here's mine! I used Winter Trees which is a very large stamp of three trees. I love the versatility of it. I stamped it once, colored the trees I wanted and then cut them out to place the way I wanted on my oval. The cute little bird is also from Magnolia-licious and you get TWO of them! this is the smaller version. You will certainly want to head over and see the new Ecommerce store! The opening will look the same, but once you click on Shop, you will love how user friendly Diana has made it!
The colors of my trees came from YG91, YG93 and YG95, but I also used YG01 to brighten the green and YG0000 to blend with. I {{heart}} them!
Thanks for traveling by! I'm right here at the end of the hop so I hope you have a chance to check out Diana's new store. She has the Halloweeen stamps (the new ones!) on sale right now!
Have a great day! Be back tomorrow with an Autumn Tilda!
Cheryl

Edited to add: I have already had some lovely comments! I would love to send this card and some other goodies to someone who leaves a comment by midnight November 20 ET-well I'm never up at midnight so you'll have a few extra hours!

Linda said...

Cheryl, you are my favorite blog artist. Something about the way you color your stuff has my undying admiration. I have a few copic markers and tons of prismacolors, but I can't seem to get close to your effects. BTW, did you cut out around the little bird? If so, how did you do the legs?

Shelly said...

I was on the fence about purchasing copics so I googled to figure out if they were worth it or not. I came upon your site and fell in love with your shading and depth! I immediately ordered the copics and am keeping track of the color combos you used. I can't wait to get my markers so I can try them out myself! That card is stunning. Now I want to do trees like that too. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

grandmamichelf said...

This is a beautiful card! The snow on the trees made me think of frosting on a cinnamon roll. Ok I know. That's just strange. But it looks so cool! And that little bird just finishes the card off nicely. The colors you used on the entire card were perfect for the coloring that you did on the trees!

Cheryl said...

Beautiful. Love it
