I enjoyed paper-piecing on my Magnolia Secret Tilda from the 2010 Merry Little Christmas Collection for the latest Copic Creations Challenge so much that I thought I'd add one to my Magnolia Stamps Sampler Mini Book.
I stamped Tilda three times: once onto Bazzill Smooth White and one on each side of the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Thin Ice patterned paper.
I used Copic markers to fill the skin, blonde hair and gift areas of the image stamped on white paper. I cut pieces of clothing from the images stamped on patterned paper.
I used a wet glue pen to adhere my clothing pieces to the image on white paper so I could glide the pieces into place and make sure they were lined up properly before drying. Here's how Tilda looks before I shaded her clothing pieces . . .
I used a QuicKutz tag die to cut beyond the edge (find more examples of using the "cut beyond the edge" technique here and here).
I adhered the tag to a Sizzix die cut chipboard scalloped square covered with both sides of Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses Thin Ice double-sided patterned paper. I added an ornament sticker and a few coordinating handmade poinsettias. Here's how the completed page looks . . .
Here's how this page looks in my Magnolia Stamps Sampler Mini Book . . .
See the cover and page one of my Magnolia Stamps Sampler Mini Book here. Find page two here. I think that this page will serve as a good reminder to use my Magnolia images to create some exciting gift tags.
You can find another example of this image paper pieced with My Minds Eye patterned papers here.
