Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - Anything Goes

Good morning!  It is time for another Magnolia-licious challenge and our theme this time is Anything Goes.  I have used another stamp and die from the Hoppy Easter set.
This Tilda is so cute in her denim dungarees!  I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added some gold gel pen to her dungaree clasps.
 The cheesecloth and lace are from The Ribbon Girl.  The tags are from the Hoppy Easter set too.  I love these.  I have made them look like denim and a jeans label because...
 ...the hole reinforcer says 'DENIM' around it!  I just love it!  So cute!


The flowers, button and ribbon are from my stash.  

The fussy cut flowers are from the Pion Design papers.  
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious challenge.  As always the challenge is sponsored by Magnolia-licious who are offering a fabulous prize for the lucky winner!

Thanks for looking! x

All About Magnolia - All About Spring/Easter



  Good morning!  It is time for me to share my card for our All About Magnolia challenge which is All About Spring or Easter.  I've gone for spring with my card.  This new stamp from the Hoppy Easter envelopes looks like she's jumping for joy through the spring meadows.


I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.


I also painted a little meadow of daisies underneath her feet.  The flowers are all from The Ribbon Girl.


The cheesecloth and tulle are also from The Ribbon Girl and the butterfly was cut from the Pion Design papers that I have used for the card.



 I have used a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket for the sentiment.


 The gorgeous lilacs were cut with the die that comes with this stamp.


 The tag die came in another envelope from the Hoppy Easter set.

May The Force Be With You

 
 Good morning!  I am so excited to share today's card with you.  As a Star Wars fan I was thrilled to discover this Edwin in the Hoppy Easter envelopes!  He's got to be a Jedi don't you think?  I've decided he is Luke anyway, whether he's meant to be or not!
 I have painted him with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added dots to his cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.  I then set about painting the Tatooine background.
 Star Wars fans like myself will hopefully recognise this famous landmark - Jabba the Hut's Palace.  I painted the background with Distress Inks using a picture from my son's Star Wars annual as a reference.
 The tags were cut with a die that was in the envelope with this Edwin. 
 I have hand written the sentiments with a white gel pen. 

 I have added a couple of sequins and gems as decoration.
 The moon stamp came in the envelope with Edwin too.  Of course I had to stamp it twice as Tatooine has two moons!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Ribbon Girl DT - Easter Cards

Good morning!  Today I'd like to share with you the Easter cards that I made for my son and daughter this year.  I have cut both cards using a Spellbinders egg die from Pion Design Easter papers.  I have then inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.
 On each card I have added a tulle bow: one from white tulle and the other from pink tulle.
  I have also added white daisies, white cherry blossoms and a 10mm rose to each card.
 The cute border was cut with Martha Stewart punches top and bottom.  I have also added some Amanda lace from The Ribbon Girl underneath.
I hope you like my cards.  Pop over to the Ribbon Girl to see lots more gorgeous laces, ribbons and flowers!  Thanks for looking! x

Magnolia Hoppy Easter Box

 Good morning!  I am excited to share another card using another stamp and die from the Hoppy Easter envelopes.
 I have painted this gorgeous Tilda and her huge ice cream using Distress Inks and the no lines technique.  I also painted a little hint of a seashore behind her and added wave ripples with a white gel pen.
I love the ice cream die because it matches the one on the stamp exactly, even down to the little dots!  The lace and roses are from The Ribbon Girl.
The camera and film strips are also Doohickey dies from previous collections and the sentiment is an older Magnolia one too.
The cheeselcoth is from The Ribbon Girl too.
  I hope you like it and thank for looking!  Have a wonderful Easter with your family and friends. x

Midweek Magnolias DT - #162 - Anything Goes

 Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Midweek Magnolias and this time it is our Anything Goes challenge.  I have used one of the gorgeous new stamps from the Hoppy Easter countdown set.
 I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added dots to her cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.  I have also used some older Magnolia stamps around the image.
 The gorgeous lace, twine and flowers are all from The Ribbon Girl and the stamps were cut from a Pion Design paper.
 The anchor was cut with a die that came in the envelope with this cute new Tilda.
 The cheesecloth is also from The Ribbon Girl and the pennant flags were cut with a Doohickey die from one of the previous Doohickey kits.
 The postcard was also cut from Pion Design papers.

Magnolia-licious DT - Anything Goes with Metal


Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Magnolia-licious and our theme this time is Anything Goes but with the option of adding metal.
 I have combined two Magnolia stamps: Sitting Cozy Tilda and the Boho Bench.  I have painted them with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.
 The sentiment is from Stempelglede's Just a Note stamp set.  I made the metal butterflies from a recycled coffee tin lid and added alcohol ink and Frantage to them.
 The diamante butterfly is a brooch from The Ribbon Girl but it is currently not available.  All of the gorgeous flowers, the lace and the cheesecloth are from The Ribbon Girl too.
 The butterflies were cut with a Tim Holtz movers and shapers die and I used a Martha Stewart punch around the edges of the card.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  As always the challenge is sponsored by Magnolia-licious with a fabulous prize for the lucky winner!  Thanks for looking! x
