Magnolia-licious - Shape It Up!

Hello, Friends. I’m back with some inspiration to share with you for a new challenge at Magnolia-licious and our theme this time is…

Shaped Cards!

So nothing square, only shaped projects qualify.

I used a Go Kreate die for my card shape featuring Autumn Tilda with Pencils from the 2012 Turning Leaves collection. I went with one of my very favorite color combos, blue and orange. I’m not a real fan of orange but I just love it with blue or turquoise.

I stitched the edges of my cardstock and DP panels which was really challenging for this shape but I like how it turned out. I added some distressing, Frantage and lots of layers with my tags and lace elements.

Here’s a close-up of Tilda colored with Copics in blue and orange with a bit of brown. I had some fun with the sentiment which I created in Photoshop to fit with my school/love theme.

Stamps – Magnolia: Autumn Tilda with Pencils, Sentiment created on my PC.
Papers – Magnolia: Tuning Leaves collection; The Paper Co.: Kraft cardstock
Dies – Magnolia: So Wrapped Lovely Heart Folded Tag, Bloomy Tag, Tilda Lace, Tea Label Tag; Go Kreate: Frilly; Spellbinders: Oval and Scalloped Oval; Marianne Designs: Chinese and English Roses
Ribbon/Lace – Martha Stewart: Flower Lace; WOC: Vintage Seam binding in Peach, Danish Blue and Oloroso; Royal Lace: Heart Doily
Flowers – Wild Orchid Crafts
Ink – Memento: Black; Ranger: Distress Ink in Weathered Wood
Other – Ranger: Liquid Pearls in Ocean blue, Walnut Stain DI; Viva Decor: Orange Pearl Pen; Stampendous: Aged Ochre Frantage.
Copic Colors – Skin: E35, E11, E00, E000, R20, R30. Hair: E37, E35, E33, E53. Apparel/Other: B06, B04, B01, YR07, YR04, YR02, E35, E53, E51, C5, C2, B000, B0000, Colorless Blender.

There are lots of new items in the Magnolia-licious store. Diana has added new stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studio, Penny Black and Candibeans stamps. She has also added a bunch of new Poppystamps dies too. I hope you get a chance to go take a look.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on any of the DT blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a weekly prize. The more comments you leave, the greater your chance to win. The winner is announced every week during the “W”ednesday post.

I hope I've inspired you to join us for the challenge. You’ll have a chance to win a prize from Magnolia-licious if you follow along with the rules and theme.
