Sunflower ♥

Hello Everyone!  Today is my day to shine at the TOMIC challenge blog as Guest Designer.  I am so very excited to have been chosen!  I am also excited to tell you about the brand new challenge going on over at Magnolia-licious where the theme for this month is birthstone so as you can see, I've chosen Topaz.  Come join us for a chance to win $20 to use at Magnolia-licious Stamps, Dies and So Much More store.

I made this for my mom for Mother's Day.  She has a very lovely yard with the most beautiful flower gardens.  She is one of the most thoughtful people I have ever known and I hate that we live so far apart right now, but mom, if you see this, I hope you know how very much I Love and Miss You.

This BEE-You-tiful little lady is from the 2019 Magnolia Day Bee-You collection.  I have colored her with Copic markers, added Star Dust Stickles to her wings and white Jelly pen here and there for accent.  I have stamped various accent stamps around her, including the Honeycomb from the same collection and Sparkle Hearts from 2014 Waiting For Christmas.

The Sunflowers are made of Foamiran, are die cut with DooHickey's Box volume 6 (Harvest) and colored with chalks that I've had for almost 20 years now.  Right about when I first started scrapbooking...  :/  Oh, and the leaves were cut with DooHickey's Rose Leaf from 2011 You Are So Special.

The tags are Tilda Tags 2011 Sweet Christmas Dreams (yes, I really do have other tag dies, I swear) and the sweet little bee in the upper-left corner is from DooHickey's Box volume 10 (buzz buzz).

Copic Markers - Skin: E000, E00, E4, E11, E21, R01, R20, R22  Hair: YR21, E35, E53, E57  Outfit: Y0000, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y28, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, B32
Distress Ink: Walnut Stain

Thank You So Much for stopping by and taking a look and while you're here, please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.

Have A BEE-YOU-tiful Day!!!

Happy Birthday My Friend!

Good Morning Everyone, Happy 1st Day of May!

I made this for my very good friend from grammar school, which means we’ve known each other a VERY long time.  LOL!  We live about 1800 miles apart but we still write and exchange cards for birthdays and Christmas.  We never call which is old fashioned, I know, but in a way it keeps us closer.

I kept the design simple to show off the gorgeous Magnolia stamp.  This cutie-patootie is Hooray Tilda from the 2019 Hugs & Kisses collection.  
I just love how she’s like, BAM!  HERE I AM!!!  LET’S CELEBRATE!  

She is colored with Copic markers and edges are inked with Distress Inks.  The sweet balloon paper is from Silouhette.

The image and balloon paper are cut with the Rounded Frames & Tags DooHickeys dies from the 2014 Pink collection.  The doilies peeking from behind are DooHickeys' Lace Coaster from the 2013 Once Upon a Time collection.

Tilda is surrounded by some postage cancellation stamps as well as the smaller of the Waiting for Christmas 2014 – Sparkle Hearts.  Sequins add to the festiveness (is that a word?) and that beautiful pink Polish lace, I think, adds so much sweetness to the whole design.

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E31, E34, R01, R20, R22  Hair: YR21, E35, E53, E57  Dress & Tights: BG0000, BG11, BG15, BG49  Shoes: E42, E44  

Distress Inks - Walnut Stain

Thank You for stopping by.  I hope you have a most wonderful day.

Spring Has Sprung

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Thursday!

Are you looking forward to the weekend as much as I am?

I've made this little something with one of my new stamps from Magnolia Day.  I have no idea what she is called since she came as a bonus.  Isn't she a cutie?  The little bunny is so adorable!  I've colored them with Copic markers and added some sparkle with Wink of Stella on the apron, the boot heart and the bunny's tail.

The beautiful papers used for this card are from Maja..  The blue is from the Vintage Romance collection and the stripe is from Vintage Spring collection.  This fun little basket is from the Magnolia DooHickey Club Magazine vol 2, the larger flowers are from vol 4, and the little flowers are from vol 5. 

 The Tilda Tag and Rose Leaf dies are ones I use in almost every one of my cards.  I can't help it, I love them.

I've added lots of pearls all around the card and, how could I not add some gorgeous lace?  The doily I cut using a Silhouette file and Vintage Seam Binding are from my stash.  I just had to add a ladybug too.  :D

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E31, R20, R22, R01  Hair: E21, E18, E39, E99, YR27  Apron: W0, W1, W3  Shirt: G40, YG91, YG93  Pants: B91, B93, B95  Bunny: E41, E42, E43, R20  Basket & Flowers: RV91, RV93, R83, E29 E70, E74, E79  Background: B60

Breakfast At Tilda's - Double Slider Card

Good Morning My Dear Crafting Friends!

Welcome to my blog on this 3rd day of the release of Breakfast At Tilda's.  This exclusive stamp was created by Magnolia-licious owner Shawn Mills in collaboration with Pauline of Magnolia Sweden.  This stamp can ONLY be purchased here at the Magnolia-licious Stamps, Dies and So Much More Store

Shawn wanted this stamp to represent his home country of Canada, where pancakes and maple syrup are served for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  This exclusive set comes as a set of four.

And here she is...  Isn't she gorgeous?  Tilda is eating a delicious stack of blueberry pancakes with maple syrup on this glorious sunny day.

Here it is opened up as a double slider card.  On the right side are the three other stamps that come with this lovely set, the "You Are The Blueberry To My Pancake" sentiment and two delicious blueberries.  On the left side I have used the Kitchen from the 2009 A Little Yummy collection.  I took away the top of the hutch and added the mixing bowls.

The lovely patterned papers are from Maja Design's, Vintage Romance collection.  I used Foamiran for the flowers, cut with Magnolia's Rose Leaf die and the flower from My DooHickey Box Club 5 set (Celebration).   The sun is part of the My DooHickeys Box Club 10 set (Buzz Buzz) and is still available in the store (I love this set, I use it all the time).

I die cut the two tags from Magnolia DooHickeys die, Tilda Tags (my faves) and tied them up with Vintage Seam Binding Ribbon, then added some charms that I've had forever.  The side, slide out panels are cut with the Recipe Card die from the 2017 Recipe Card collection.

Distress Inks: Aged Mahogany, Black Soot, Bundled Sage, Chipped Sapphire, Fired Brick, Gathered Twigs, Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Wild Honey

Copic Marker: N0

Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa

Snow Tweet

Hello My Crafty Peeps and Welcome to my Magnolia-licious Inspiration post.

Happy Friday!!!  I have for you today, my second Christmas card so far this year.  I've already fallen behind as I had hoped to make one per month but there is time to make up for it, right?

Isn't this the most adorable image?  This is Winnie Heavenly-Snow Tweet by Polkadoodles.  I just love her because I picture this as me, sitting in the snow and watching nature, feeding the birds and hoping some will get close enough.  The angel part is a bit of a stretch though.  :P

I have colored this scene with Distress Inks and Copic Markers, Star Dust Stickles and a Gelly Roll pen for the snow.

For the dies I have used Magnolia DooHickeys from Club 2 and Vintage Box 6, and Spellbinders Labels 8.

Distress Inks:  Aged Mahogany, Antique Linen, Fired Brick, Forest Moss, Fossilized Amber, Gathered Twigs, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Stormy Sky, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain

Copic Markers: N0, N2

Don't forget about our March challenge where the theme is Use Your Favorite Stamp.  You can get all of the details HERE.  I hope you will join us and share your talent.  
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I would appreciate you letting me know what you think.  I hope you'll have a most wonderful weekend.

It's Not About The Destination

(Be sure to go all the way to the end to see something really cool)

Welcome Everyone!  I hope you are having a most fantastic day!

The Magnolia-licious Challenge is under way and our theme for this month is, Your Favorite Magnolia Stamp.  

Hmm...  I don't know about you, but I don't have one favorite.  I'm pretty sure it's impossible.  My favorite is whichever one I'm coloring at that moment.  I've been addicted to these gorgeous stamps since I first laid eyes on a Magnolia Ink magazine in December of 2010 and every one I own has a special place in my heart.  For example...

I made this card for my youngest daughter Ashley.  She is the traveler of our family and before the end of this month, she will be moving to Pennsylvania to advance her career.  I am so happy for her and proud of her achievements, but also sad to see my baby go.

This is Let's Go! Tilda from the 2019 Let's Go collection.  I believe she's wondering, "where to next?"  Also from this collection is the adorable Taxi (the Journey Text that comes with it can be seen below on one of the tags).  The Eiffel Tower in the background is part of the 2017 World Magnolia Day collection, With Love From Paris.

The Magnolia DooHickeys dies are: Tilda Tag, Sakura Lanterns (branch) and Club #5 (flower).

Isn't this just the coolest?  You can add lights to any card with Memory Lights.  If I had more, I would have put some in the headlights too.  You can add several lights to one system and they're super simple to install.  Click on the link and it will take you right to it.

Come on and join our challenge for your chance to win $20 to spend at the Magnolia-licious Store and to be our Guest Designer for the May challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a most wonderful day!

Happy Monday to you!  I hope your week is starting out great and hope your weekend was awesome.

 All dies I have used to make this, except the rectangle, are Magnolia DooHickeys Dies and include Flag & Cloud, Tilda Tag, Insta Strips, Balloons from Club #5, Small Cloud from Club #4, Sunshine from Club #10.

 Distress Inks: Aged mahogany, Antique Linen, Barn Door, Black Soot, Bundled Sage, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, Hickory Smoke, Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw, Shaded Lilac, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain

Thank You So Much for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back again tomorrow and see what I've made for the new Magnolia-licious Challenge.  Have a wonderful day!
