#116 Anything Goes - Midweek Magnolias

Happy Hump Day, Friends! I am so glad to see you all at the Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog this morning. Our next challenge is one of my favorites…

“Anything Goes”

Since we are free to make just about anything you can think of, I decided to share my creation of a Pocket Letter Pal that will be shipped to my good friend Candy Mills.

She made a spectacular PLP for me with all kinds of lovely pink elements. I am so excited to bring this fun project to our crafting resort and I will be making more in the future.

This is the back of the Pocket Letter.

Here is a close up of Tilda.

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

Magnolia-licious - "W"ednesday Post #77

Happy “W”ednesday, Friends! It’s my turn to share a “W”ednesday post for Magnolia-licious. These cards and projects feature stamp lines…

Wee Stamps
Wild Rose Studio
Penny Black
Saturated Canary
From the Hollow Fairy Stamps
Crafter’s Companion

These are all carried in the Magnolia-licious store.

My project today features a Saturated Canary stamp called “Gothica.” She is "NEW" in the Magnolia-licious store. I colored my image with Copics to match my Penny Black Coco Style designer papers and Bazzill card stock.

I used my Joy Crafts die border again. I am in love with this die; it is so elegant. My SC image is framed with a pretty die from Spellbinders. I also handmade all of my flowers this time with dies from Magnolia and Marianne Design. I made a cute pompon with bakers twine and added a few other elements for interest.

Here’s a close up of my image.

Midway Reminder - Fun in the Sun

Happy Hump Day, Friends! I’m sharing my DT project for our “Fun in the Sun” challenge at Midweek Magnolias.

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

My card features “Lazy Tilda” from the new Sakura collection. I colored Tilda with Copics and made her legs as shoes instead so that she looks like she is sitting in the grass. I used some fun Doodlebug Design papers from the Sunkissed collection with Bazzill cardstock.

My die cuts are Memory Box flowers, Cottage Cutz Butterflies, La-La Land Heart Border and Magnolia Bloomy tags. I added some lace from LLC and flowers from WOC.

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 - Pretty in Pink

Hello, Magnolia Friends. I haven’t been posting regularly due to a broken wrist back in February and I am going under the knife again tomorrow to remove the plate and pins from the joint. Normally they would leave it in permanently but it is not in a good position so it is coming out. I have a post that I’ve scheduled for today and next week but I may not be back until the end of June. So, without further ado, I'm sharing my DT card for the current Magnolia-licious challenge

*****Pretty in Pink*****

The challenge will run until June 8th.

My card features “Sakura Tilda” from the new Magnolia Sakura collection. Tilda is colored with Copics and framed with my new die from Joy Crafts. I love this frame and how it works with the matching border die. I also used some fabulous new Magnolia dies from the Sakura collection. The adorable Sakura Lanterns and Fireworks fit so will with Tilda.

My designer papers are from Penny Black, Coco Style collection and my cardstock is Bazzill as usual. I used as much pink as I could for this lovely Tilda and it is such an easy color to create with.

Here’s a close-up of Tilda.

By now you know the rules for the “Leave a Comment” prize. Commenting on all the DT and Challenge posts gives you a better chance to win.

Come and join us for the challenge I know you will enjoy it plus you get a chance to win a prize from the random draw of entries.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and see you next “W”ednesday.

Happy Birthday, Allie!

Hello, Friends. Today I’m sharing my GDT project for “The Paper Nest Dolls!” I love the aspirations of Christine’s talented artistry. These adorable stamps are available in “The Paper Nest” online shop.

My card features a new release stamp called Party Time Avery. Her party dress is cute as a button. I colored Avery with Copics and created a birthday theme card that I will send to my granddaughter Allie. She will be 6 years old on June 6 and she just finished her first year of school.

I cut my image out and framed it with a Spellbinder die. I colored a separate stamped image of the balloons and used pop dots for dimension with a coat of glossy accents.

Most of my die cuts are from the Magnolia Doohickey Die Club Vol. 5, Celebrations. The balloons and gift packages got a coat of embossing powder. I also used a new Joy Crafts border die and added some pretty pink pearls. The sentiment is a LOTV stamp with Wild Plum embossing powder.

Thanks for popping in to visit. I’ll be back on Tuesday to share another card. See you then…

Midweek Magnolias - Masculine Card

Happy Hump Day, Friends! I am so glad to be back to crafting and sharing a DT card for the Midweek Magnolias. I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed it!

Our new challenge this fortnight is...

“A Masculine Card”

Our challenge runs until May 5th so you have plenty of time to create a card or project to join us for a chance to win a prize from Magnolia Sweden.

I love, love, love Edwin and I couldn’t wait to color this adorable Pirate Edwin stamp that reminds me of “Captain Jack Sparrow” from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” Disney Movie.

My designer papers are from Maja Designs which have a perfect seaside theme for Edwin. The die cuts are from La-La-Land. Aren’t they so cute? I love the fish net die, perfect for my card.

Here’s a close up of Edwin colored with Copics.

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

Spring into April at Magnolia-licious

Hello, Magnolia Friends.

I am back to crafting and blogging finally. I fractured my wrist on February 14 and spent the afternoon in the emergency room with contusions on my ribs, legs and sore all over as well. Some Valentine’s Day, right? LOL

Unfortunately, the wrist I broke was my dominant hand and I had to have surgery with a plate and pins inserted. No fun! I've been going to physical therapy for 7 weeks now and getting back to normal. It has been a long healing process.

So for my first project since my absence I am sharing my DT card for our current challenge going on at Magnolia-licious

*****Spring into April*****

This challenge will run until April 27th.

I've chosen to use “Tilda with Two Rosettes” from the Special Moments collection for my Spring card. I was so happy to get the chance to use some of my new dies from the Le Jardin DooHickey Die Club. I also have some new Joy Craft and La-La-Land dies. They are so fun to craft with.

My designer papers are from Magnolia, Recollections and Pink Paislee. I colored Tilda with Copics to match my pink, yellow and green color palette.

Here’s a close-up of Tilda.

Leave me a comment for a chance to win a prize from Magnolia-licious. 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. As long as you follow our rules and theme you will be entered in the random winner draw at the end of the challenge. Good Luck!

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be back tomorrow with another Magnolia card. See you then.
