Marvelous Magnolias - Ribbon or Lace


Hello, Magnolia Friends!

I am now a part of the 
Marvelous Magnolia Design Team. 
YEAH!


I am so honored and proud to be part of such a creative, inspiring and talented team. I am on the Romance DT so I’ll be posting here every 15th of the month for our challenges.

Our September challenge theme is...

"Ribbon or Lace" 

and our fabulous sponsor this month is iamroses.



My card features “Tilda Enjoying Summer” from the SeaSide collection. I used some pretty Maja Design papers paired with Bazzill cardstock.


I used lots of Magnolia DooHickey dies, pretty flowers and ribbon. I love creating multiple layers with my designer papers, doilies and cheese cloth. They give lots of dimension and texture to my cards.


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

Challenges:

Tilda with Daisies and Mushrooms


Hello, Friends! I know it seems a bit early but I had to start digging out my autumn stamps because our mornings are getting brisk here in Colorado. Autumn is very close upon us so I felt an urge to make a fall themed card.


I decided to color Tilda with Daisies and Mushrooms from the Turning Leaves collection. I used some pretty Maja Design papers that I have in my hoard stash. These are from the Walking in the Forest collection. I still have several sheets left to use for some scrapbook pages and cards. I also used Bazzill cardstock, my favorite, for the card base and some of the die cuts.


I’ve been coloring with Distress Inks more as well because it’s very relaxing. I need to work on my backgrounds a bit to get them smoother and I like to use darker shadows to really make the image pop. You are sure to see more DI coloring from me.

I still love my Copics but I can color an image in half an hour so it is not as relaxing. DIs take me a bit longer and it helps to reduce stress.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.

Challenges:

Craft-Dee Bowz – Anything Goes include a handmade bow
Simply Magnolia – Anything Goes
ABC Challenge – O is for Open (Anything Goes)
The Ribbon Girl – Card Challenge (Anything Goes)
Craft Your Passion – Anything Goes
Time for a Magnolia Challenge – Glitter/Bling and Lace
Noor Design September Challenge – Flowers and Lace

Thanks for popping in to visit and have a great weekend…

Midweek Magnolias - #145 Anything but a Card


Happy Hump Day, Friends!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Anything but a Card”

Join us for the challenge following the theme and our rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


For this challenge, I made my very first explosion box. A word of caution...this post is photo heavy.

I’ve always wanted to create an explosion box so I did a bit of searching on Google and Pinterest for inspiration and I found loads of gorgeous boxes. I wanted to be original so I decided to look through my stash of Magnolia dies, of which I have hundreds mind you, to create a unique project.


My box top features “Tilda with Armful of Flowers” from the Seaside collection. All of the designer papers I used for the project are Maja Designs, Summer Crush collection paired with Bazzill cardstock.


Here is the box open. I created a house warming box using my Magnolia Big House, Fence and Tree DooHickey dies. I cut the big house twice and glued them together to make a large 3D House. I used my EK scallop border punch to create my roof shingles. Then I cut the fence twice and shortened it for a smaller scale, attached them together and made a gate. I also cut the trees twice and put a short headpin wire between the trunk and tree for durability then hot glued it to the box.


I also colored Bee Tilda from the Spring Fever collection and Sunbathe Tilda from the Seaside collection.


Here’s a close up of Bee Tilda.


And a close up of Sunbathe Tilda.


Here is a close up of my envelope die cut from the Magnolia Vintage Box Kit. The envelope has a magnet closure with “Home Sweet Home” sentiment on the outside. I also cut a Tim Holtz House border for the bottom of the box flap.


The envelope opens to “Congrats on your new home” sentiment on the inside. 


This flap has some Magnolia Key die cuts.


Here is a close up of the House. I had lots of fun creating this project.

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

Magnolia-licious - Summer Blog Hop


Hello Magnolia, Fans!

Today we are hosting a Summer Blog Hop with 2 chances to win $20 shopping dollars from Magnolia-licious.

If you arrived here from Katie's blog then you are on the right hop path. If you need to start from the beginning go to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog here.


For my project, I created a summer beach themed photo frame featuring “Bikini Tilda” from the Sea Breeze collection. I created my frame with multi layers of thick chipboard then covered it with Maja Designs pattern paper. I found lots of shells, fish net, sand and mini rope at Michaels to create the beach elements of my frame.


I fussy cut Tilda out along with a small piece of canvas fabric for a simple beach towel. My palm tree is a layered die cut from La-La-Land Crafts. I also put a small bit of sand in a Tim Holtz mini vial for a tiny message in a bottle. To finish it off I put a photo of a trip that hubby and I took to the British Virgin Islands, Bitter End Yacht Club. What a fabulous place!


Here is a close up of Tilda colored with Copics.
