Just because - Blue Jean Baby


Hello, Friends. This post is a bit out of the ordinary for me as it has nothing to do with my DT responsibilities.

I am posting a card for FUN! What!?!...you say? LOL Well, I’ve been on vacation this week and started coloring a new image I purchased a couple weeks ago. I’ve wanted to color this cute “My-Besties Designs - Blue Jean Baby” and today was that day.


I used some of my Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics papers from last fall to dress up my card and coordinate with my Copic colors on my image. She is soooo darn cute.


My card is a bit shabby-chic style with vintage seam binding, lace and lots of ink distressing.


Here’s a close up of "Blue Jean Baby."

Magnolia-licious Challenge - Animals and/or Accessories


Happy Tuesday, Friends. We have another new challenge for you at Magnolia-licious. This time our theme is…

Animals and/or Accessories Stamps Only

So that means we are looking for cards/projects that do not have a character stamp on them. This challenge is all about those cute animal, accessory or background stamps.


For this challenge I thought it would be fun to create another box card using the new strawberry stamp from the Summer Fruits Kit of Pink Lemonade collection. My designer papers are from Doodlebug Design and cardstock is Bazzill. I used the Strawberry Basket box card from SVGcuts and I replaced the cut strawberries for the Magnolia stamp. It’s the perfect size for the SVG files.


I added extra die cuts for interest, some rosebuds and a butterfly punch.


I finished off the box with some lace, a vintage seam binding bow, and Magnolia “Hello Sunshine” sentiment.


Here's another shot of all the pretties in this basket. It does fold flat to fit in an envelope. This card is for someone special as a "Thank you" for a gift I recently received.


Leave us a comment on any of the DT’s blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a weekly prize. The winner is announced every week during the “W”ednesday post.


Come and join us for the challenge and you may have a chance to win a Surprise from the Magnolia-licious store.

Christmas in July at Magnolia-licious


Happy Tuesday, Friends. We have another new challenge for you at Magnolia-licious. This time our theme is…

Christmas in July!

It is so HOT this week, in the upper nineties, that I would love to have some cool weather.


My Christmas card for the challenge features “Peaceful Tilda” from the 2013 Winter Wonderland collection. My designer papers are from Fancy Pants and cardstock is Bazzill. I used a lot of glitter on my card elements. The card is a pop up gift card holder. I've wanted to make one of these so I decided a Christmas theme is the perfect occasion. Check out the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. I easily modified the dimensions for a square card.


Here’s the card when you open it. I added a closure strap so that it lies flat in an envelope.


Here’s a close up of Tilda. I colored her with Copics and used a little Gold stickles on her wings and halo.

Magnolia-licious - Summer Buggy Fun


Happy Tuesday, Friends. I’m here today to share a new card for our challenge at Magnolia-licious. This time our theme is…

Summer Buggy Fun!


My card for the challenge features “Tiptoe Tilda” from the Animals of the Year collection. My designer papers are from Maja Design’s new “Coffee in the Arbour” collection. I love the vintage shabby prints on these and I was happy to find that one of the papers had cute butterflies on them, perfect for our theme. I cut some of the butterflies from the paper and attached them to Tilda’s hands. She was colored with Copics and I cut her frame with my Spellbinders Floral Oval die. She is so cute.


I distressed my paper panels and die cuts, added a flower arrangement, a double bow and scattered butterflies throughout my card.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.
