All About Magnolia DT - All About Anything Goes

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share my card for our 'Anything Goes' challenge at All About Magnolia this month.
 I have used Splits Tilda and painted her with Distress Inks.  I have added dots to her cheeks with a white gel pen.  I have added a touch of sparkle to her shoes and hair ribbon with a Wink of Stella brush.
 The butterflies and the background paper are papers from Maja Design's Denim and Friends collection.  The butterflies were cut with a Tim Holtz die.
I added flowers in pastel colours to match the pretty ribbon that I recycled from a gift bag.
The mint green flower is one I made from Foamiran using the RosyDot Heart Flowers die.  I used white Foamiran and added colour to the centre with a Prima Chalk.
The tags were cut with a Doohickey die from the Easter Countdown set.
 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious DT - Foamiran Orchids

Good morning!  I'm so excited to share today's card and see what you think of it.  It's one of those cards where I've had the idea for over a year but never got around to making.  When I started making flowers with Foamiran I knew I would now be able to make the card exactly how I'd envisaged.  The pink background to the orchids was cut with the recipe card Doohickey.

The leaves were cut by hand from deep green Foamiran and veined it with my scoring tool.  I also inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink to make them look more realistic.  The roots are flower stems.


I covered the 'pot' in Crackle Accents to give a lovely effect.


I also added a little bit of florist's moss to the pot.


The orchids were made from white Foamiran using the orchid Doohickey dies.  I coloured the centres with copic markers.


For the stem of the orchid I used flower stems.


Check out the Magnolia-licious store for lots of Foamiran colours and flower centres.  I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x


Midweek Magnolias Challenge DT - Anything Goes

Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Midweek Magnolia Challenge and our theme is Anything Goes. 
 I have used Splits Tilda and masked her with the 'yay' balloons.  I've painted the whole image with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added dots to Tilda's cheeks with a white gel pen.  The 'It's your birthday' sentiment comes with the yay balloons too.   I've also added Glossy Accents to the balloons to give them a 3D look.
 I created a stylised flower using a glass pebble, some pretty paper and some tulle and added tags using several different Doohickey dies.
 The ribbon and lace are from my stash.
 I added some tiny roses here and there and cut a butterfly border for the top.
 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Midweek Magnolias.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - Anything Goes plus Pearls

Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge and our theme is "Pearls" if you want to add to our usual Anything Goes challenge.  I have masked a couple of older Magnolia stamps together to create my little princess pampering scene.
I have painted Tilda and her bubble bath with Distress Inks using the no lines technique. 
 I gave the bubbles some shimmer with a Wink of Stella brush pen.
 I've added pink Frantage and fragments around the edge of the image mat.
I stamped the sentiment using some individual letter stamps from Hampton Arts.  The pearl string, cheesecloth and flowers are from my stash.
 The white flower is one I made from Foamiran and the cute pink balls, which I'm using to represent bath pearls, are foam centres for your Foamiran flowers, available at Magnolia-licious. 
 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 gorgeous creations from the rest of the new team.  As always there is a fabulous prize on offer from Magnolia-licious.  Thanks for looking! x

Midweek Magnolias Challenge DT - #172 Lace or Ribbon

Good morning!  It is time for another Midweek Magnolia Challenge and this week our theme is Lace or Ribbon.
I used the teacup Doohickey from kit 14 . I've edged the the rims and handles of the teacups with a gold pen.  The teabag was cut with Doohickey dies from the same kit.  I cut the bottom of the teabag from cheesecloth to make it look more realistic.  The 'tea leaves' are brown flower soft.
The flower is one I made from Foamiran.
I added lace from my stash and a sentiment with letters cut from a Pion Design paper.
The pennants were cut with another Doohickey from kit 14.
 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Midweek Magnolias.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - XO

 Good morning!  Today I have my inspiration post for Magnolia-licious Challenge.  We have our usual 'Anything Goes' challenge with the extra option of adding lace this month.  I have used some gorgeous papers from the Magnolia-licious store by Maja Design from their Denim and Friends collection.
I have masked three stamps together to make my image: Porch Tilda, Swing Branch and Happy Swing.  I have painted them with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added some sparkle to Tilda's top with a Wink of Stella pen - this is a new addition to my stash and I love it!
 I have used the branch and leaf Doohickey from kit 14 for the tree branches.    I love how they match the stamped branch.  I did a spot of doodling around the image here and there and added some butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
 The tag was cut with a Doohickey die from the Easter countdown calendar and the XO was cut with a Tim Holtz die.  I've added lace, twine and flowers from my stash.
 The hearts were cut with another die from kit 14.
 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us over at Magnolia-licious.  Thanks for looking! x
