You Are The Blueberry To My Pancake

Hello Everyone!  Welcome to my Craft Shed, where I do more procrastinating than actual crafting.  LOL!  Oh, and happy Wednesday to you.

Today I bring you this card using the super sweet Breakfast At Tilda's stamp collection by Magnolia Sweden, exclusively made for Magnolia-licious.  Isn't she a beauty?  I've colored her up with Copic markers and accented with Distress Inks, white Gelly Roll pen, and Glossy Accents on the Maple Syrup bottle.

All of my flowers are hand made.  The little blue flowers are made using Magnolia DooHickey's Dies from the Box #9 and the white leaf stems are Box #12.  For the pink flowers I used the Spellbinders Vintage Rose dies, the green leaves are made with the Magnolia Rose Leaf die from the 2011 You're So Special collection and the blue gingham tags are cut with the Tilda Tag die from the 2011 Sweet Christmas Dreams.  Oh, and I cannot forget the Magnolia Silver Ware dies from the 2013 With Love collection.

I hand dyed the Vintage Seam Binding Ribbon with Aged Mahogany to match the pink flowers which were also colored with Distress Inks.

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

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.
