The Ribbon Girl Magnolia Only DT - Things that Hang

 Good morning!  It its time for another Magnolia Only challenge over at the Ribbon Girls and this week our theme is 'Things that Hang'.  I've made a door hanger for my not so little anymore little boy's room.  I have drawn and cut out the lettering by hand and inked the edges with Distress Inks in Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint.  The gorgeous striped grosgrain and the resin birds are from The Ribbon Girl, of course.  I really love this ribbon, it is so thick and luxurious and ties beautifully into bows.
 I have painted Ninja Edwin with Distress Inks and added dots to his eyes and cheeks with a white gel pen.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at The Ribbon Girls.  As always there are gorgeous goodies to be won!  Pop over to the blog to check out the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Stempelglede DT - Anniversary Card

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share an anniversary card I made for my brother and his wife using Stempelglede stamps.
 I embossed one of the stamps from the Grunge Flourish Hearts collection in silver onto some pink vellum and cut out just the centre heart.
 I also used the butterfly from the Vintage Baby collection stamped onto white tissue paper.
 The cherub is from Magnolia.  It was actually a deep pink colour so I painted it with Picket Fence Crackle Paint to soften the colour and make it appear aged!  The flowers are from the Ribbon Girl except the Large white flower.
 I added lace underneath the bottom edge of the paper as well as on top for a pretty vintage look.
 The banner die is from La-la Land Crafts and the sparkly heart is from The Ribbon Girl too.
 I used a couple of hearts that were cut out from the banner die to decorate the card.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Magnolia-licious DT - Sun, Sea and Sand

 Good morning!  We have a fabulous challenge up and running over on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog at the moment with a theme of 'Sun, Sea and Sand'.
 I inked up this little cutie from the Sea Breeze collection: Playing on the Beach Tilda.  I've painted her with Distress Inks and added some details with a white gel pen.
 I painted a beach scene around her and added little sketched details such as pebbles and shells on the beach.  I also added details such as the waves hitting the sand with a white gel pen.
 Can you see the seagulls I've painted in the sky?  The hearts are the cut outs from the new tag from the Vol 5 Doohickey Kit.  I've also added faux stitching around the edge of the card with black and white pens, depending on whether they are on light or dark areas of the paper.
 The sentiment is hand written too.
 The gorgeous pennant string is also a die from the new Doohickey Vol 5 kit.  All of the dies from this kit are amazing.  I think the kits are such great value for the amount of dies you receive.  Diana has them on free delivery too!
 I was certainly into doodling when I created this card!  I doodled some faux stitching in the top left corner of the image mat too!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.  As always Diana is sponsoring with a fabulous prize from the Magnolia-licious store.

All About Magnolia DT - Lace and Pearls

 Good morning!  We have another challenge running this month over at the All About Magnolia Challenge and our theme is Lace and Pearls.  This was perfect for an acceptance card I needed to make to reply to an invitation to my cousin's wedding.  I love weddings don't you?  It is some years since I have been to one so I am really looking forward to it!  I used the same colours for my acceptance card as the invitation so that it will match all of her wedding things nicely in a keepsake box.
 I just love the celebration cake dies in the Vol 5 Doohickey Kit and thought they'd look quite cute cut in half on the edge of the card.  I love how it turned out, what do you think?  I plan to use the whole cake when I make the wedding card.
The lace, ribbon and pearls are all from The Ribbon Girl and the 'acceptance' stamp is from my stash.
