Stop in the Name of Love


My stamps from the newest collection from Magnolia Stamps came in the mail...woo-hoo.  I stamped and coloured one of them right away and created a card with it.

Here's the finished card...

This is called a Surprise Pop-Up Card.  You pull out a tag from the top and the image panel comes up to reveal a hidden area where you can place a sentiment.  I used the instructions from a Splitcoaststamper tutorial HEREalthough I didn't use their measurements.

Here's a close up of the adorable image I am featuring...

This Tilda is called Stop in the Name of Love Tilda from the Lovely Duo Collection 2015
It's a two-stamp set--the sentiment comes with the Tilda.

Check out the rest of the collection HERE and other Magnolia stamps at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  She carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosSaturated Canary and Candibeans.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia DoohickeyWild Rose Studio.  Have a look!

Such a gorgeous card--I like pop-up cards, too--they're an extra bonus to an already lovely card. :-)

I do like this one Norma although I did giggle at the pose Tilda is doing. Then of course I started to sing and that made me giggle even more!!! I love the design and the embellishments you have used and must pop over to Splitcoaststampers to have a look - I've got a real urge to make one using this design.

Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar (Something New) Challenge this month, lots of luck to you.
