Breast Cancer Awareness

Claudia_Rosa_breast cancer_2

Hi, have you had a chance to check Just Magnolia Challenge today?
The team has made some samples for this weeks challenge to use “Dies/Die cuts and pearls”
I took a break from Just Magnolia after my trip to Germany to be able to just focus on the DT cards I had to make for the shops I design for, I am super excited to be able to join the girls again. I want to use the challenges to get some gifts done for Christmas. Well… obviously this is not a Christmas gift but since October is just around the corner and it is breast cancer awareness… I thought it would be a good reason to find some of my older stamps and use them.

This Tilda was released in 2008 along with a few really nice sentiments in a Collection just dedicated for Breast Cancer – a portion of a purchase made from those stamps is being donated to Breast Cancer Awareness. I could not believe it when I saw on my box (I labeled back than everything) that it was 2008 Smile it seamed like yesterday and boy.. look at Tilda’s face.. she sure has changed a lot in the last years. I remember back than this Tilda was the first one that came out with super curly hair that would work very nicely for short curly black hair coloring.

As for my supplies I used:
The pink glitter door hanger I found around Valentines day for 1.99 at Michaels Smile it came with the tiny pink ribbon bow and the brown scroll letter “N” on it. Since I placed Tilda between the lines, it almost looks like she is sitting between 2 pillars. I removed the panel and the ribbon bow with my exacto knife, sponged, distressed and layered the scroll paper. The hinge came also from Michaels and it was shiny gold, I colored that with 2 very dark Copic Sketch markers to match my vintage key, which I have found in the $1 bin at Michaels. The felt bird is a die cut also picked up at the $1 bin around Spring time.
Other Supplies: Stampin up wide pink ribbon, assorted pearl stickers, Stickles, pink button, brown bakers twine, Copic Sketch, Prisma color pencils, Kraft cardstock, Copic Express Cardstock, gauze, Super Tacky Glue,
Stamps: cross-legged Tilda ,
Sentiment: Cure, Strength & Hope

Claudia_Rosa_India Tilda_2_full

Hello my friends.. hope you have had a great weekend.
Today I can share with you a little Magnolia card I have made in January 2012 for a magazine in the USA. You see the layout is really simple and minimalistic embellishments. Seeing the cards in magazines in the USA I feel that this card is already over embellished. Anyways I hope I can inspire you even with a simple card …
