My card features “Bee Tilda” from the new Spring Fever collection. I colored her with Copics and masked her with a Magnolia Lace stamp. I used Pion Design papers with Bazzill cardstock.

Hello, Magnolia Friends. Today we have a brand new challenge at Magnolia-licious and this time our theme is...

CELEBRATION!

You have until April 25 to join in for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious store.


My celebration “Mother’s Day” card features “Daffodil Tilda” from the “Spring Fever” collection. I used some pretty spring designer papers from My Mind’s Eye paired with PTI cardstock. I colored Tilda with Copics and framed her in a stitched rounded rectangle Silhouette Cameo cut.


I added a Cherry Lynn doily die cut under Tilda’s frame and two DooHickey tags with Vintage Seam Binding. The ribbon rose is from Maya Road and the WOC flowers are joined by several leaf die cuts from Marianne Design. My Mother’s Day sentiment is a LOTV stamp on a Spellbinders die cut frame.


Here’s a close-up of Tilda.

Midweek Magnolias - #135 Add Lace and Pearls Midway Reminder


Happy Hump Day, Friends! I’m sharing my DT project for our “Add Lace and Pearls” challenge at Midweek Magnolias.

You have one more week to make a card or project to join in the challenge. Follow our rules and you will have a chance to win a prize from Magnolia Sweden.


My card features “Dandelion Tilda” from the “Spring Fever” collection. I colored Tilda with Copics and added a bit of distress ink markers for shading. My DPs for this card are from the New Haven collection by Maja Design paired with Bazzill cardstock. My Frilly #10 XXL die from Go Kreate was used to create my card shape.


Tilda has lots of pearls all over the card and pretty lace with sewn in pearls and sequins from Simplicity. I added a couple of lovely butterflies from Creative Expressions, Magical Butterflies collection. I dabbed Aged Mahogany DI on each and spritzed with my water bottle. A bit of Boa here and there makes this card sing spring.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.

I hope my project inspires you to join us for the challenge. Have a fabulous week.

Magnolia-licious Easter Blog Hop


Hello Magnolia, Fans!

Today we are hosting an Easter Blog Hop with 2 chances to win a $20 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious.

I am kicking off this Easter Hop, so whether you came here from the Challenge Blog or not you are in the right place for us to share our Easter crafts inspiration with you.


For my project I created a cute little Easter basket box using my Silhouette Cameo and I added some adorable die cuts with inspiration I found on Pinterest and Magnolia’s most recent DooHickey die club kit. My daffodils were a last minute addition so I included some of the darling DooHickey grass die cut along with my Lawn Fawn grass.


My basket motif features “Tilda picking Carrot” from the Sakura collection. I created an Easter banner with the DooHickey dies hanging among the basket on craft straws that I made with cardstock and pink polka-dot ribbon to match my pastel color theme.


I put some pretty glittered eggs in the basket and created a “digging bunny” die cut from circle, scallop and oval dies. Sister bunny is digging for goodies in the basket and has become a bad influence on her little brother that is sitting watching her search for carrots. LOL…so comical and adorable. My grandkids are sure to love this one.


I had such fun making this project. I get a ton of inspiration from Pinterest and this one came from a Stampin’ Up creation by Amy Koenders. I just had to add this cutie to my basket.


Here is a close up of Tilda colored with Copics and some pretty pearl pollen around her frame.

Midweek Magnolias - #133 Mother's Day or Special Lady


Happy Hump Day, Friends!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Mother’s Day or Special Lady”

Join us for the challenge and follow the theme and our roolz and you may have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


My card features “Volang Dress Tilda” from the “Boho Collection” along with a PTI sentiment for a “Special Lady” to follow our challenge theme.

My designer papers are from Pion Design Studio of Memories collection paired with Bazzill smooth cardstock. I colored Tilda with the no-line stamp technique which gives my image a soft appearance.


Tilda’s frame was created with a Joy Crafts die as is the Butterfly border matched set and corner dies. I distressed the papers, dies and vintage seam binding with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima. Zva Creative provided all the rhinestone bling to my butterflies and the wire heart charm is from my stash.


Here is a close up of Tilda.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. Have a great week.

Midweek Magnolias - Anything Goes


Happy Hump Day, Friends! I’m sharing my Midway Reminder DT card for our “Anything Goes with a Magnolia Image” challenge at Midweek Magnolias.

You have one more week to make a card or project to join in the challenge. Follow our rules and you will have a chance to win a prize from Magnolia Sweden.


My card features “Dancing Tilda in Italy” from the “Little Italy” collection. I practiced on my Distress Ink water coloring last week and I think Tilda turned out great. I really enjoy water color with DIs when I have time and it is so relaxing!!! Coloring with Copics is much quicker with only one layer to color; I can have an image done in about 30 minutes. Water coloring takes me 3-5 times as long because I tend to let it dry completely before adding additional layers.


My DPs for this card are from Pion Design paired with Bazzill cardstock. Since this cutie is dancing I embellished my card with some musical score dies from Memory Box. I love how it turned out.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.

I hope my project inspires you to join us for the challenge. Have a fabulous week.

Hugz,
