Mangolia-licious DT - Clean and Simple

 Good morning!  It is time for another Magnolia-licious challenge over on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and this time our theme is 'Clean and Simple'.  Yikes!  Bit of a challenge when you're used to sticking lace and flowers all over the place, but actually, I sometimes prefer them over frilly, fancy cards.

I have used Drip Drop Tilda for my card and coloured her with Black Soot Distress Ink, except for the pink tinge from the raindrop, where I used Worn Lipstick.
 After spending over an hour searching my craft room for a stamp that I thought I had, with no success, I ended up hand writing the sentiment.
 All of the raindrops were cut using the large butterfly Doohickey and using one of the off cuts.
I hope I've inspired you to join us for our Clean and Simple challenge at Magnolia-licious.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations.

As always, Diana is sponsoring with a special prize from the Magnolia-licious store for the winner, chosen by random.  Thanks for looking! x

All About Magnolia Challenge DT - All About Shaped Cards


 Good morning!  It is time for another challenge reminder at All About Magnolia Challenge and this month our theme is 'All About Shaped Cards'.  I've used a Doohickey die from Vintage Box 1 for the shape of my card and edged it with pieces of the Doily Doohickey. 
 I've used one of the sentiments from the We Made It collection as the focus of my card instead of an image.  I've then used lots of dies.
 The flowers were cut with a Spellbinders die and I've used a combination of roses and pine cone charms in the centres, both from The Ribbon Girl.
 I've used the Strawberry Doohickey and several tag Doohickeys around the sentiment.
 I've also used the Butterfly Doohickey and Heart Tag Doohickey.  The tiny red flowers are some two tone flowers from The Ribbon Girl but I have removed the white petals that they had.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Happy Father's Day


 Good afternoon and happy Father's Day to all the Dads and Grandads out there.  This is the card that I made for my children to give my dad.  You may be able to guess from the card that my dad is into archery.  The card is simply die cut circles and the largest two circles are hand cut.
 I have used the Magnolia Doohickey arrow dies from one of last year's Doohickey kits and cut the fletchings in the colours that my dad uses.
 I pierced holes into the 'gold' circle using my Tim Holtz Die Pick and then pushed the arrows through them before gluing down.  The letters are Webster's Pages stickers, mounted onto acetate so that they sit above the card layers 'invisibly'.
All of the layers are mounted on 3D pads to add extra interest to the card as you can see in the photo above.

 I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious DT - Wednesday Post - Pretty Ballerinas

Good morning!  It is time for me to share another creation for our 'W'ednesday post over on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  I made this for my daughter's birthday
I've used the gorgeous Tiny Townie Dancers from Stamping Bella and painted it with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've added Stickles to the image here and there for some girly sparkle.
The gorgeous lace and ruffle ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the number 8 was cut with a Memory Box die.
The rolled roses were created with a Memory Box die and so are the die cuts behind them.
The hydrangeas are from Prima and the other flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.

Ribbon Girl DT - Sarah Kay

Good morning!  I have another card to share today using lots of gorgeous Ribbon Girl goodies.  I am loving revisiting childhood memories with these Sarah Kay stamps.  I have used papers from the gorgeous Crafts & You Vintage Time paper pad.
I have painted the image with Distress Inks, keeping the colours soft and delicate to match the papers.
All of the flowers are from the Ribbon Girl except the yellow one here.  I have also used Shabby White Ruffled ribbon.
The gorgeous chipboard elements are by Scrapiniec, now available at The Ribbon Girl.
The seam binding and bronze key charm are also from The Ribbon Girl.
I have added a delicate butterfly die cut border around the edge of the card and tiny punched butterflies to the image.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious DT - Anything Goes

 Good morning!  It is time for another Magnolia-licious Challenge and our theme is 'Anything Goes'.  I've used to of the cute stamps from the Spring Fever collection to create a little scene.
 I've painted Tilda with Spring Flowers and Tilda's Laundry with Distress Inks using the now lines technique.
 I've added some gorgeous flowers and buttons from The Ribbon Girl around the edges of the card and used the Lacing Coffee Doohickey die too.
 I've used a Tim Holtz die to cut the butterflies and added pieces of oval bead string from The Ribbon Girl to the centres.  I've used the Lovely Fence Doohickey die along the bottom edge of the card and trimmed it with some more of the oval bead string and some pretty lace.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.  Pop over to the blog to see the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the team.
