Valentines - Dreamy Tilda / Magnolia

There is a fairly new challenge blog called Roses On Paper which is a part of the Roses On Paper online store. In order to participate in the bi-monthly challenges you must use an image on your creation that incorporates a Magnolia, Whiff of Joy, Sarah Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller, Alota rubber stamp or a stamp from The Greeting Farm. I recently purchased some of these and was able to participate in my first challenge....yeah!

The current challenge is:
Make a Valentines Day card using the masking technique and incorporating a rose or roses.

I chose to make mine with the very traditional colors of Valentines Day, pink and red. I used Dreamy Tilda that I masked and sat her on top of a cupcake by Alota. I had a really hard time figuring out how I was going to incorporate a rose on my card but I finally chose to use a ribbon rose that I pop dotted onto the pink heart. The designer paper has a shimmery sheen to it that unfortunately doesn't show well in the picture.

I highly recommend visiting the Roses On Paper online store. I was very pleased with my purchase. My items were shipped right away. Shipping prices are outstanding....very reasonable! Items I purchased are of good quality and packed well for shipping. I was so thrilled with my purchases from Roses On Paper ......this is a happy customer and I know you would be too! Check them out!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Dreamy Tilda by Magnolia and Cupcake by Alota
Printed Paper: Heidi Grace Designs
Cardstock: Bazzil
Pearl Heart: Hero Arts
Spellbinder's Nestabilities used for oval cut out and scallop.
Cuttlebug's Embossing Folder to create swiss dots
Techniques Used: Image colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Gamsol, masking technique, and paper piecing.

I'm so glad I could join my first challenge on the Roses On Paper Challenge Blog. Be sure to check it out and all the awesome creations!

Hi Susan,
You did a great job masking that little girl onto the cupcake. It looks like that is how the stamp was made. So cute!
