A-Doorable Tilda BLOG HOP!

Hello!! I'm so glad you've stopped by the Cottage today! We are having an awesome BLOG HOP to inspire (we hope!) everyone to get their cards and projects entered into Diana's Easter/Spring Extravaganza contest! We don't want you to miss out on your chance to be chosen for BIG prizes! Diana's design teams have joined forces to show you lots of springtime cards and projects! So, if you've come along from ANGELA'S CRAFTING CORNER you are in the right place!
There's nothing like being able to open doors and windows to air out a house that's been closed up all winter! I can't wait!
Please see the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog linked above for all the contest details, but, in a nutshell you can will up to 150.00 from the Magnolia-licious Store! You may enter 3 separate projects (one for each category); using a mini image, using a regular sized image and make a 3D project using Magnolia images of your choice. Winners are being chosen by voting and there are a number of prizes being awarded, not just one! You have until 11:00 pm April 19 to enter!
I used #366 WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE from the You Are So Special Collection. Of course, she does not need to be for Valentines Day at all! Diana has many, many images in stock including most of this collection and preorders for the newest Butterfly Dreams collection. New stamps and the new Magnolia magazine are expected SOON!

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, my friends and I went to our local stamp store, Buffalo Stamps N stuff! Sharon (the owner) is wonderfully friendly and talented! She stocks all the best products out there! She, herself designed this screen door concept for cards and teaches it in a class. I was able to buy some "extra" doors with the screen cut by her husband, Mark. I'm sooooo in love with this concept and want to do many of them!
And, Tilda, colored with my copics, of course! I used the usual colors for her skin. Her boots are E34, 55, 25 and 29
Her flowers are BG10 and BG72 with leaves of YG03 and 25
Her dress is Y23, YR24 and Y21 for some of the blending
Her hair is E50, Y23, E35, E25 and E29. I kept going over it and blending with Y23.
The flowers on the screen are from an MFT die as is the small felt flower by the door.
The inside needs a bit more work, but I thought I'd show it to you anyway!
Am also entering in the Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge-use dies this week.
And, now I'd like to send you on your way to the blog of the most-talented MARIA to see what she's been up to in her studio!
thanks so much for visiting today, now feel free to hop along!
Hugs to all, Cheryl

Beth Devitt said...

Love this idea. It is really so cute. I live in FLA and don't experience winter like you do. But having grown up in Ohio I can still remember the sound of the screen door slamming shut, as you dashed outside to play. Good memories.

This is a totally cool concept. Definitely something new I have never seen!

Cheryl,
This is adorable!! I also picked up that door and screen from the local stamp store (Buffalo Stamps & Stuff)and put it aside and haven't done a thing with it. You've inspired me to get it out and do something with it. I love the colors you chose and your coloring is fantastic. Love all the details too. Hope you have a great week!!
Hugs, Kim
