Midweek Magnolias - Anything but a Card

Happy Hump Day, Friends! I am so glad to see you all at the Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog this morning. Our next challenge this fortnight is a personal favorite of mine…

“Anything but a Card”

I love creating paper crafted items that I can give away as gifts. This is a “box in a bag" and I’ve had it on my “to make” list for some time now. There is a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and it is so easy to craft.

I used one of the new stamps from the “Magnolia Stamp Club.” She is not in the store yet so I don’t know her name. I can’t wait to see the entire collection. They remind me of the 60s “Flower Power” era. I will likely be adding more of these cuties to my collection once they reach the store.

I used some pretty Maja Design paper and a new die set. I created a paper lace trim at the bottom of my bag with my dies and added tiny flat back pearls for a delicate touch.

I colored Tilda with Copics; her dress is colored with one of my favorite BG color combos. I love the turquoise color hues of these markers.

Here’s a close up of Tilda. I am still a bit shaky with coloring since surgery and my wrist gets sore after long lengths of coloring time. So I am taking it slow but I’m making progress every day.

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

Magnolia-licious - Anchors Aweigh

Hello, Magnolia Friends. I am finally back to blogging and sharing creative inspiration for Magnolia-licious. It has been a very challenging time this year with my wrist surgeries and now that I have pretty much recovered from those, I am back in my craft room on a regular basis coloring and creating cards. Although it seems that my creative Mojo has gone missing, or on holiday if you prefer, I am still trying my best to get back in the swing. I love coloring and creating cards so I am really happy to be in my creative space again. Our current challenge is…

*****Anchors Aweigh*****

So all you need to do is put an anchor on your project. The challenge will run until July 27th.

My card features "Pirate Tilda" and "Barrel and Skull" Magnolia stamps. 

I used some fabulous Maja designer papers and Bazzill card stock.

I love the new La-La-Land die cuts which I got in my club subscription. They are so cool...

Here is a close up of Tilda colored with Copics.
