Wallpaper Tilda...

Morning everyone!

I'm popping in today with another Swedish Housecrafts DT post. I have to confess to another make with new Magnolia stamps Fixer Upper collection !! they really are just so gorgeous to play with and Wallpaper Tilda needed her first Lou inking!!

I love that she also comes with wallpaper! how cute is that?! I used a strip for her wallpapering job, making sure to roll it like a real roll of wallpaper and another strip to paper piece her some super cute decorating dungarees with a matching a bow. A girl still need to accessorize even when decorating! 

To really make Tilda come alive, I stamped her out on the card base and again on my colouring cardstock. I coloured the Tilda on the base first so that I knew I hadn't missed any for my fun plans! then I coloured the top part of the extra stamped out one and 'cut' her at the waist.

I turned the card a little for this photo so you could see the way I popped out the top half of Tilda and attached her to her roll of wallpaper. Then I stuck her paper pieced and fussy cut dungarees right onto the card base layer and then out a little onto the top popped out part. It looks so sweet!!

For the wet look wallpaper paste, I used the Magnolia Fixer Upper background brush stamp. I stamped it with my  Tsukineko Emboss Ink pad and some clear ultra thick embossing powder from my stash. I love how it still looks all gooey ready for the next strip of wallpaper to go up!

The base of the card is made using the Recipe Card die. I thought it would make a change to having a normal card base and I love the delicate edge it has to it. I used the 2nd die in the set to make a really sweet little 'new home' themed a couple of charms with the teeny house and key from the Magnolia stamps You're invited Doo Hickey set.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!! it all came together so cute!!!! 

Right, I had better crack on really. After a gorgeous family bank holiday bubble, I have to admit I am not keen on handing the little fella back to school today! Roll on half term!!!!!

Have a fab day everyone, huge hugs Lou xxxx
