Ribbon Girl DT - Magnolia Only Challenge - Spots and Dots

 Good morning!  It is time for our first Magnolia Only Challenge of 2015 over at The Ribbon Girls.   Our theme is Seeing Spots.  My card is a winter birthday card for a relative who loves to go skiing!  I love it when you can use a Christmas stamp at other times, don't you?  My spotty paper is by MME and I have distressed the edges and painted them with Picket Fence Crackle Paint.
 I have painted the image with Distress Ink pads and added some details with a white gel pen.  I also used a silver gel pen for her zip and the ski poles.
 All of the flowers, the gorgeous lace and the cheesecloth are from The Ribbon Girl.  You can see in this photo that I have covered Tilda's Ski jacket with Glossy Accents to make it look more realistic.
 The sentiment is from Magnolia and again the flowers and curly stamen are from The Ribbon Girl.
 I used one of the new ticket dies from the Vol 3 Doohickey Club Kit to make the tags.  The seam binding and rose are from The Ribbon Girl too.
 The gorgeous birch tree and cardinal dies were a gift and are by Impression Obsession.
I hope you like my card and I've inspired you to join us this week at The Ribbon Girls.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious DT - Love is in the Air

 Good morning!  Our first challenge of 2015 at Magnolia-licious is 'Love is in the Air' and this is my card for the challenge.  I've used several Magnolia stamps to create this little scene: 
 I have painted the whole scene with Distress Ink pads and added some details with a white gel pen on her eyes, cheeks and the flowers.
 I used only the bottom part of the flower stamp as I didn't want them to be too tall.  I have then drawn other blades of grass around the stamped image to create a meadow.  The gorgeous diamante border was created with trim from The Ribbon Girl.
 I love these cute little bird stamps from Magnolia, they can add a sweet touch to lots of different stamped scenes.
 The lace and blossom flower are also from The Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment is a mini sentiment from Magnolia.
  The large flower is from Magnolia and the fuchias were made by me.
 The butterflies were made using a Stempelglede stamp.  
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations.
As always Diana is sponsoring the challenge with a special prize from the Magnolia-licoius store so good luck if you decide to enter!  Thanks for looking. x

A Joke Card

 Good morning!  I have a joke card to share today that I created for my hubby to give a friend.  Hubby received a birthday card from said friend which read "You Is Well Old!" lol.  It did give us a laugh when he opened it and as his friends birthday is only a few weeks later I decided to return the favour!  I have used a Tim Holtz alphabet die and that's it!  Super quick and easy and will hopefully gain a laugh when it is received!
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious DT - "W"ednesday Post

Good morning!  It is time for my first "W"ednesday post of 2015.  I have chosen the gorgeous Saturated Canary image "Windy Day".
I have coloured her with Distress Ink Pads and added some highlights on her lips and cheeks with a white gel pen.

I have used one of the tag dies from the Doohickey Vol 3 kit behind the image, cut from MME papers.  The lace, cheesecloth, pearl trim and resin bird are all from The Ribbon Girl.

I made the little key by cutting shrink plastic with the key die from the  Vol 3 kit, shrinking it and then painting it with Picket Fence Crackle Paint.

The laces and flowers are also from The Ribbon Girl.

Scattered among the flowers I have used leaves cut with the Rose Leaf Doohickey.
 I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  If you have time why not pop over to the Magnolia-licous blog to see the other "W"ednesday creations.

Wishing You a Magical Day

 Good morning!  I have a new card to share using a new stamp too!  When I saw this beautiful, serene Santoro stamp at a local store I knew I had to add her to my collection.
 I have coloured her with Distress Ink pads and used a white gel pen to fill the little dots on her skirt.
 I have used Tim Holtz Butterflight die on the corrugated card behind the image.  After cutting I painted the butterflies with Picket Fence crackle paint.  The lace, flowers and seam binding are all from The Ribbon Girl.
 The large flower was created with the Peony Doohickey die and some stamens from my stash.  I have used coffee filter paper to create it.
 The sentiment is an old one from Whiff of Joy and the papers I have used are from MME.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Enjoy your Monday. x

Another Male Birthday Card!

Good morning!  I have another male card to share today.  As the recipient is a builder I thought it would be fun to use a Prima brick mask. I began with kraft cardstock and swiped an embossing ink pad over the mask.  Once I'd removed the mask I sprinkled the brick pattern with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder.  It has a rough, sandy texture so is quite realistic for bricks!
 For the sentiment I used a Tim Holtz alphabet die.
 The tape measure ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Oh look! Stars again!

 Good morning!  My first card of 2015 and, as you can no doubt immediately guess from the photo, this card is for a man lol! As often seems to be the case when I make male cards I've used my trusty Sizzix Stars die, hence the title of this post!  January is a heavy birthday month for me and I have two more male cards to make so watch out for more stars lol!
 I have torn the edges of different coloured cardstock then layered them up.  The sentiment is from Magnolia.
 The star is mounted onto 3D pads for some dimension.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
