1 Stamp - 2 Ways Hop....

Good morning! It's the third Monday of the month and that means it's time for the Magnolia-licious Design Team Blog HOp!! This months theme is a 2 for 1 Holidays. We are taking a holiday stamp and using it 2 ways. First we are using it for the Holiday it was intended for and then for an entirely different holiday. We want to show you how versatile stamps can be. There are some awesome creations by the girls so make sure you hop around and check them ALL out! If you arrived from Sharon Caudle's blog, you are on the right track, If you not you may want to start at the Magnolia-licious Highlights and hop along.

Here is what I created for you......

 Ok so I know what you are thinking....Baby - that's not a HOLIDAY...well you are correct. I had EVERY intention of making this card a Valentine's Day card and at the last minute, literally as I was putting it together I said, awww, this would be so cute with a Baby Banner. So I changed it. When I started up loading my cards I realized what I had done!! just image the words Baby saying LOVE! haha

For both of my cards I used Tilda wants a Hug from the christmas collection. Sadly I did not see it in the store at the moment. However, you can check with Diana and see when it will be available again. It's all colored with Copics. The paper is Echo Parks - Very Merry. The large scallop and Banner is from MFT.  Do you just love that Red Silk ribbon?? I know I do! I picked that up over at the Ribbon Carousel.

Copic Colors:
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20, W2
Hair - E42, E43, E44, E47
Clothes - R22, R24, R27, R29, W4, W5, G21, G24, G28, G29
Background - W7, W5, W4, W2, W1
The baby card is also colored with copics. The Christmas stamp has Holly's in her hair so i just used a Copic Multiliner and drew in a loopy ribbon to cover them up. The pink border is an Antique Lace doohickey.  Have you checked out ALL the dies Magnolia-licious is carrying now? Wowza, if you haven't you must!!  She has Memory Box, Cherry lynn, Marianne, Magnolia Doohickeys and more!!  The paper is Carta Bella - Paris Girl.

Copic colors:
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20, W2
Clothes - RV10, R81, R83, R85, W2, W4
Hair - E51, E53, E33, Multiliner

Tracy, I started using this Tilda image too for the challenge, but ended up using her for something else. Just perfect for the challenge. I love the banners to suit the occasion and your colouring of both Tildas is fabulous. Love the colour schemes.
