Magnolia-licious DT - Baby Card

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share a baby card I made with lots of gorgeous goodies from Magnolia-licious.  
 How cute is the stork Doohickey?  I love it!  It works equally well as the focus of the card or as embellishment to a painted image I think.  I cut mine from the same paper as the background paper.
 I have layered the image up using several circle die cuts and added some lace behind the bottom circle.  All of the flowers were made with a Doohickey die from one of last year's kits.  You can find a great selection of them at Magnolia-licious!
 I have also used a heart tag Doohickey and the hearts are the centre cut outs.  Waste not want not!
 The bark hearts, lace and papers are new in stock at Magnolia-licious.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Ribbon Girl DT - Use Any Image Challenge

 Good morning!  We have another challenge starting today over on The Ribbon Girl blog and it is our "Use Any Image Challenge.'  I have used the super cute Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lilac, available at Magnolia-licious.
I've painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.
 The gorgeous faux silk ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl as are the lace and cheesecloth.
 The gorgeous flowers are from The Ribbon Girl too.  The butterflies were cut with a Spellbinders die and the vine was cut with a Doohickey die.

Magnolia-licious DT - Anything Goes/Summer

Good afternoon!  I'm rather late posting my card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge but here it is at last!  Our challenge is Anything Goes with the option of Summer.
 I have painted the gorgeous Tilda with Willow Branch using Distress Inks and the no lines technique.  I also used Distress Inks to paint the rocks and grass that she is sitting on.  The Postcard and post mark stamps around Tilda are also Magnolia Stamps from a few years ago.
 I have used lots of Doohickey dies on my card.  Magnolia-licious has a great selection here.
 The gorgeous ribbon, pearl trim, lace and flowers are all from The Ribbon Girl.
 I have also used a paper doily from my stash underneath the image.
I love the tassle dies from Magnolia.  I have used some jute twine which I have painted white with acrylic paint as I had run out of white button twine.
 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.  As always we are sponsored with a fabulous prize from the Magnolia-licious store for the lucky winner.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.

Midweek Magnolias DT - #162 Favourite Colours

 Good morning!  It is time for a new challenge at Midweek Magnolias and our theme for this challenge is 'Favourite Colours'.  I tend to have different favourite colours depending on the season and at the moment I'm in love with these gorgeous soft mauve and creams.
I have painted the gorgeous Sitting Spring Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also drawn some little daisies in the grass using a white gel pen.  I have added Glossy Accents to the boots but it is difficult to see in this photo.
 The beautiful butterflies are all cut with the Tim Holtz Butterfly Frenzy die and the edges inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
The sentiment is from Stempelglede and the gorgeous chipboard vines and the cheesecloth are from The Ribbon Girl. 
 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Midweek Magnolia Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - Anything Goes

Good morning!  It is time for another Magnolia-licious challenge and our theme this time is Anything Goes.  I have used another stamp and die from the Hoppy Easter set.
This Tilda is so cute in her denim dungarees!  I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added some gold gel pen to her dungaree clasps.
 The cheesecloth and lace are from The Ribbon Girl.  The tags are from the Hoppy Easter set too.  I love these.  I have made them look like denim and a jeans label because...
 ...the hole reinforcer says 'DENIM' around it!  I just love it!  So cute!


The flowers, button and ribbon are from my stash.  

The fussy cut flowers are from the Pion Design papers.  
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious challenge.  As always the challenge is sponsored by Magnolia-licious who are offering a fabulous prize for the lucky winner!

All About Magnolia - All About Spring/Easter



  Good morning!  It is time for me to share my card for our All About Magnolia challenge which is All About Spring or Easter.  I've gone for spring with my card.  This new stamp from the Hoppy Easter envelopes looks like she's jumping for joy through the spring meadows.


I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.


I also painted a little meadow of daisies underneath her feet.  The flowers are all from The Ribbon Girl.


The cheesecloth and tulle are also from The Ribbon Girl and the butterfly was cut from the Pion Design papers that I have used for the card.



 I have used a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket for the sentiment.


 The gorgeous lilacs were cut with the die that comes with this stamp.


 The tag die came in another envelope from the Hoppy Easter set.


 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

May The Force Be With You

 
 Good morning!  I am so excited to share today's card with you.  As a Star Wars fan I was thrilled to discover this Edwin in the Hoppy Easter envelopes!  He's got to be a Jedi don't you think?  I've decided he is Luke anyway, whether he's meant to be or not!
 I have painted him with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added dots to his cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.  I then set about painting the Tatooine background.
 Star Wars fans like myself will hopefully recognise this famous landmark - Jabba the Hut's Palace.  I painted the background with Distress Inks using a picture from my son's Star Wars annual as a reference.
 The tags were cut with a die that was in the envelope with this Edwin. 
 I have hand written the sentiments with a white gel pen. 

 I have added a couple of sequins and gems as decoration.
 The moon stamp came in the envelope with Edwin too.  Of course I had to stamp it twice as Tatooine has two moons!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
