Let Us Give Thanks Mother to Be!

EDITED:  I've added yet another version...check it out below!

I knew when this challenge came up, I had to find a "different" one to alter to cover two events or occasions.  We have a 2 for 1 challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites where we are to take one image and create two different themes.  If you came from Suzanne's blog, you are on the right trail and I'm sure she has shown you something extra-special.  If you came on your own, you can go to Suzanne's or to the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to get the list and all the details how you can join in too!

The Tilda #245 Mother to Be stamp was rather fun to change from an expectant Mother congratulations card to a Thanksgiving card with Tilda carrying a pumpkin.  Did it make you giggle?  The thought of other than carrying a baby came about when I first colored the Mother to Be with a green dress and I was thinking watermelon!!!  Or maybe it is just me!!!  :)
I've used the pretty #245 Mother to Be image and colored her with Promarkers.  The dotted paper is Doodlebug which I embossed with a Tim Holz embossing folder and then sanded the embossing.   The word stamp is Hero arts and these are punched out with circle punches.  I've added some Spellbinder corners with some EK Success punched flowers and leaves.  Tilda has some pearl accents made from the Viva Pearl Pen.
Then I colored her again with the Promarkers and added some striped leggings and a long sleeve shirt!  In this neck of the woods, in most cases a short sleeve dress wouldn't be warm enough at Thanksgiving time.  I've added an Imagination verse for the banner, EK border punch on the edges of the Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I've tapped Versamark on the embossed part to make it stand out better and added some EK and Punch Bunch punched leaves for a fall look.  The little tendrils on the pumpkin are just wire that has been wrapped around a skewer for shaping.

Be sure to check out the fantastic specials and new items that Diana has over at Magnolia-licious!  She has terrific prices and extra special things for us along with their awesome service!!!  Stock up on the cuties in the Halloween/Fall mini bundle HERE at a great price!!! 

You will enjoy the creativity of the rest of the team, so be sure to go to Mary Giemza's blog and see something very special.  She is so creative!!!   Hope you will join the challenge!

Had to try one more!
Tilda and Edwin are both good bowlers!!!!  I googled bowling pins and bowling score forms on the internet to come up with my background paper and the pins.  Tilda is colored with Promarkers and cut out and popped up with foam tape.

Would love to see what you can create, please join the challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites!  Diana has a Magnolia-licious Special Surprise for a lucky winner and you know she always gives wonderful prizes!!!
Enjoy every day!
Patti Jo

OMGoodness, this is so creative, Patti Jo. I love how you made Tilda hold a pumpkin in the alternate card and gave her colored clothing. So clever. Gorgeous coloring on both images and they are just dolls!

Janie Printz said...

WOW !!! That doesn't even look possible to change one stamp into something so COMPLETELY different ... Wish my brain worked like that... Patti Jo these are both just incredible. I'm still smiling looking at how you turned that big ole tummy into a pumpkin. I just love it & adding stripes to her arms & legs to "dress" her for Fall is pure genius.Hugs, Janie

Tertia said...

How very clever! Love that pumpkin!
Hugs from South Africa

Nágela said...

Absolutely adorable!

Irish Eyes said...

Oh my goodness! That is just the cutest idea. Really thinking outside the box. Love it!

Norma said...

Patti Jo, both cards are gorgeous, but altering this Tilda for Thanksgiving is just brilliant. It made me chuckle, but at the same time I was in awe. Fabulous imaginative mind you have! Beautiful colouring and love the little details.

Cami said...

Patti Jo, this is the BEST use of a stamp twice! How very clever of you! I love how you substituted the pumpkin! PERFECT! It really made me smile (and chuckle!). Great thinking outside of the box! I love this!!!


Suzan L said...

Oh Patti Jo, you are so creative! I love how you transformed Tilda's tummy into a pumpkin! Both of your cards are so darling!! Thank you for the inspiration!

Paper Tails said...

Wow! This is great! Thank you for inspiring me to finish the card I started.


Angela said...

I have to say it again but the way you altered this Tilda is genius. I never would have thought of that and now makes me really look at my other images to see what I can do different. You've created some beautiful cards and your coloring is gorgeous, Patti-Jo! hugs, Angela

Ruth Ann Hunter said...

Just love what you did with this one stamp! Your creative juices were in high gear, makes me wonder where mine are. Love both of the cards and the one holding the pumpkin is truly precious. Can't wait to what you come up with next.
hugs, Ruth Ann

Pam said...

WOW Patti Jo you're so clever on using this image. I would never have thought to add sleeves and leggings to her dress. Love both the cards.

Kimberli Sarsfield said...

LINDA W. said...

OMGoodness I would never have thought to do this with this image. I love both of your cards

Mary said...

Both cards are gorgeous! I love the thanksgiving one and how you made it look like tilda was carrying a pumpkin. SO CUTE!!! I had so much fun playing along with the challenge. I've already added my birthday card and Christmas tag using Sneaky Tilda in the link on the challenge blog. Off to see what the rest of the DT has created! Thanks for the inspiration!! Gotta get this stamp!!!!

LINDA W. said...

OMW I thought the first two cards were really great but this one takes the praise. Great to turn Tilda's belly into a bowling soooo cute.
hugs Linda

Madge H. said...

Patti, I love the first two - but I must say the third one is PRICELESS!
Almost enough to make me buy that stamp just to add a bowling ball...... Love them all.
~ rubber hugs ~

Jenée said...

Oh my gosh, I thought turning Mommie to be into Tilda holding a pumpkin was clever, but the bowling ball is even more imaginative. Way to go, girl. I definitely need to start looking at my stamps differently. I'm such a darn "literal" person :-( This has really been a fun challenge, and the DT have really outdone themselves.

Jean said...

Wow Patti Jo, you sure don't disappoint! Love the double cards and the way Mama goes from pregant to carrying a pumpkin which is so colorful. Both are absolutely gorgeous annd so stunning each in their own way. You did a great job as usual!
Hugs, Jean

Paper Tails said...

That is AWESOME!!!!


Kelly Neis said...

..Karen said...

Candy said...

Hi Patti Jo,
Another great idea with this image!

Each has been entirely unique and wonderfully coloured and decorated.
I have enjoyed them all :o)
Big hugs, Candy

Norma said...

Patti Jo, you are amazing!!! That third card is absolutely brilliant. Love love love it!!!

Marji said...

OMG what a wonderful imagination. This is very inspiring how you look at this one image and see at least three different things out of it. Makes me want to get the image. Great coloring too. Awesome.

Elle said...

Your creativity brought a smile to my face! I'll never look at this stamp the same again...and to think I was holding it for mothers-to-be only.
