Hello, Friends. Sorry I’m so late with my post but I had to leave town on an emergency for family. But I’m back today and ready to share my project for the new challenge at Magnolia-licious. This time our theme is…

Flowery


My card features “Pieces Tilda” from the new Zodiac collection. I colored her with Copics and gave her a sunshiny background.

Midweek Magnolias - Lacey Lace


Happy Hump Day, Friends! We have a new challenge for you at Midweek Magnolias. This fortnight our theme is…

“Lacey Lace”

Don’t you just love Lace? It is one of my mainstays and on almost every card I make. My friend, Suzanne Dean, shared a link with friends on her Color Me Creative FB site to the fabulous Lavish Laces Etsy Store. OMGoodness, I love it all. But my wallet would see some serious ramifications had I gone crazy. LOL

So I played it safe and got lots of pretties for a very low price. Of course, I use my Etsy card sales to fund some of those extra expenses for new embellies, stamps, etc.


My DT card features the NEW “Sagittarius Tilda” from the new Zodiac collection. She just happens to be my sign since my birthday is in late November. She is adorable and sporting a bow and arrow. I received a compound bow for my birthday. It needs adjusting since my strength has left me in my old age. Ok, you can stop laughing. LOL


I colored Tilda with Copics and gave her a shaded background to make her POP. I used some pretty papers from Kaisercraft and My Dear Watson with vintage pink, red and brown/ivory colors. I love how these work together. My Lacey Lace was a freebee “Thank You” gift with purchase from the fabulous store owner Jaizella Clark. Check out her store here.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.

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

Clean and Simple at Magnolia-licious


Hello, Friends. We have a new challenge for you at Magnolia-licious. This fortnight our theme is…

Clean and Simple

I’ll warn you now…“Clean and Simple” is not my favorite style. I love to load up on the embellishments, die cuts and frilly lace. So I decided to create something that has a little contemporary design such has the Chevron pattern as we have been seeing it in a lot of new pattern papers.


My card features “Teddybear Love” from the Princes and Princesses collection. I colored Tilda and her teddy bear with Copics and created grassland at her feet. I colored Tilda’s Teddy bear with a soft fuzzy technique for depth and texture.

My designer papers are Maja Designs from the Fika collection. I love all Maja Design pattern papers; they are so vintage and shabby chic. I cut several chevron shapes from my DPs, distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and layered them in an “unintentional” (OMGoodness, I didn’t have my ruler in the right place while gluing the segments. Woohoo!) slightly asymmetrical (Yikes!) pattern which actually created a little interest. I’m not unhappy with the way it turned out. LOL


Here’s a close up of this sweet Tilda with her fuzzy teddy bear. She always takes the stage.
