Wee Wednesday - Love Trip


Happy Wednesday, Friends! It’s time for another Wee Wednesday. Eulanda and I are hosting this week's Wee Wednesday so don’t forget to stop by the Magnolia-licious challenge blog to see what she made. We also have a new challenge up as of yesterday and it's an easy Anything Goes. So, I hope you join us 'cuz it is open until August 13th. Lots of time to make a card or crafty project with a chance to win a prize from Diana's store.  

 
My card today features a sweet Wee Stamp called, Love Trip. Such an adorable stamp and I used some of my designer papers for the balloon. The papers are from Echo Park called This & That by Lori Whitlock. I added some brad elements from this collection to my card as well. I love Lori’s designs including her Silhouette cutting files.

 
I colored my image with Copics and added in some clouds and blue skies. I kept my card very simple with some flowers from WOC and lace by Martha Stewart. 

 
Here’s a close up of my image.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope the rest of your week goes fast and you look forward to your weekend.

Anything Goes at Magnolia-licious


Hello, Friends. The Magnolia-licious design team has a new challenge for you this Tuesday and it is the easiest of all challenges…

ANYTHING GOES!
 

My card features “Tilda with Spritz Pocket” from the 2013 Special Moments collection. She is just the cutest little girl. I colored her with Copics; put a little Glamour Dust on her dress lace, pocket and socks for bit of sparkle. I also masked her with an old Hero Arts stamp called Distressed Frame embossed with Aged Rose Fran-tage. The papers are from Maja Designs along with Bazzill card stock.
 

 The paper lace on my middle panel is an EK Success edge punch. My flowers are from Petaloo with a few Marianne Designs rolled roses embossed with the Aged Rose Fran-tage and Recollections pearls in the center. Then I added soft pink pompom trim from The Ribbon Girl.

The Wrapped Heart Tag die cut is from Magnolia dressed with Vintage seam binding from WOC and a darling charm by Prima.
 

 Here’s a close up of Tilda.

There are new items in the Magnolia-licious store.  Diana has lots of new Memory Box dies (including lots of fun Christmas shapes) and she is now carrying a new line of stamps from Wild Rose Studio. They are so adorable; you must check them out. You’ll be seeing some cards from me in the coming weeks with these. I can’t wait to share them with you.

Buttons & Bows at Midweek Magnolias


Hello, Friends! Welcome back to a new challenge at Midweek Magnolias. This fortnight our theme is… 

Buttons and Bows 

I just got my Sweden kit a few days ago so had to start coloring and decided to use this sweet little bathing beauty from the new summer kit. 


I colored Tilda with Copics, added a little sand coloring under her using the E50 series and Bronze Fran-tage around her frame. I used some lovely Pion papers, distressed them with my Tim Holtz tool and inked with Frayed Burlap. 

 
My gold buttons are from JoAnn’s with the loop backs cut off. The corner flourish is chip board from Blue Fern Studios and covered with Bronze Fran-tage. The lace I got from LLC and I added flowers from Magnolia, Kort & Godt, and WOC. I finished the card with a satin bow from Michaels and a few Magnolia die cuts. 


Here’s a close up of Tilda on the beach.
 
I'm entering my card in the following chllanges:
 
 
I hope my card inspired you to join us with buttons and bows of your own at Midweek Magnolias. Have a great week.

Some Like it HOT!!!

 
Hello, Friends. I hope you all had a great July 4th Holiday and if you had an extended weekend like me you celebrated Independence Day with style. Of course, here in Colorado we have a burn ban due to all the wild fires in the area and did not have any fireworks. However, we celebrated by taking the horses to Dawson Butte and rode a 5 mile trail around the mountain. Beautiful views and the horses absolutely loved it.
 
The Magnolia-licious Design Team has a new challenge for you this fortnight and our theme is…
 
Some like it HOT!
 
So anything that tickles your fancy with something hot will work for the challenge.
 
 
I chose to make a summer card with “Edwin in Miami” from the 2012 Summer Memories collection. I love this Magnolia image and didn’t get to use him last year so I decided to make a masculine card. I colored him with Copics and sprinkled Vintage Aqua Frantage around his frame. My cardstock is Bazzill and the papers are from Maja Designs Life by the Sea collection. This collection is perfect for these stamps.
 
 
I cut several Magnolia Pennant dies cuts from the papers and inked them with Navy ink from SU and tied with jute twine. The seaside charms are from LLC and I added a nylon string from an old drawstring bag I found around the house and tied it with Flemish Bend knots on each end to hold the charms. The jute twine mesh is from Mon Ami Gabby. I finished the card with several seashells from my stash.
 
 
Here’s a close up of Edwin. He is just too cute.
 
There are new items in the Magnolia-licious store I must tell you about. Diana has lots of new Memory Box dies (including lots of fun Christmas shapes everything is marked NEW.) And she is now carrying a new line of stamps from Wild Rose Studio. They are so adorable; you must check them out. They are available for pre-order and are discounted 13%. You gotta love that!!!

Wish you were here...

Hello, Friends! We are back with a new challenge for you at Midweek Magnolias. This week our theme is…

Wish you were here
a Seaside Theme

My card for the challenge features more of an ocean scene. I've had this design in my card making journal since last year and I finally made it. My card stock is Bazzill and the Paper Co. with a Bo Bunny background paper.


The Magnolias I used are Pearl Tilda, Largo the Dolphin, Oyster with Pearl, and Memory Shells. I also used several Marianne Designs die cuts for the sea plants and anchor. The coral stamp is from I Brake for Stamps and heat embossed with coral colored embossing powder from Ranger. I also heat embossed my Memory Shells and the Oyster with Pearl with Vintage Ivory Frantage to give them little gold specks on the image. Then I used a color resist technique on them with ink from SU. 


The Oyster with Pearl has Glamour Dust on the inside of the shell. Most of my elements got a coat of Glamour Dust or Stardust stickles for sparkle. Tilda was colored with Copics and I used Viva D├ęcor pearls for the bubbles in her hair.


Here's a shot of the entire Easel Step card.

We would love for you to join us for the challenge this week and don't forget to stop over at the DT's blogs for inspiration.


Hugz,
