Magnolia-licious DT - Mini Wednesday

 Good morning!  Don't you just love Bank Holiday weekends?  Back to work yesterday and already it is the middle of the week - wish every weekend could be three days!  It is my turn to share a creation on the Magnolia-licious blog for our Wednesday post, and this week we're using Mini Magnolia World stamps.  I just love these cuties!  Perfect for lots of little projects.  I have made a corner book mark for my daughter.  I made her one of these years ago, which she still has, but she still finds it difficult to find the page with it in!  For this reason I have adapted the original design by adding a circle tab at the top which will protrude from the book.
 This Mini Magnolia World Editor Tilda is perfect for a book mark.  I've painted her with Distress Inks and added Glossy Accents to her glasses and dots to her cheeks with a white gel pen.
 The butterflies were cut from a Pion Design paper and I have inked the edges of them with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
 The lettering is by Webster's Pages.
 The gorgeous lace is from The Ribbon Girl...
 ...and so is the beautiful pale pink rose on the tab. 
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to get stamping with the Mini Magnolia World stamps.  Diana has a fantastic stock of these cuties in the Magnolia-licious store and some great bundle offers!  Pop over to the blog to see more gorgeous creations from my friends.  Thanks for looking! x

 Good morning!  Today I have a card to share using a Sarah Kay image.  When I was a girl I collected Sarah Kay stickers so the stamps make me feel so nostalgic!  This little boy chasing turtles is so cute and perfect for my nephew's birthday card.
 I painted the image with Distress Inks.
 The balloons were cut with a Doohickey die and the number three is from The Ribbon Girl.
 The bark star is also from The Ribbon Girl.  I have cut the star border with a Martha Stewart punch and the fence is another Doohickey die.
 I added a selection of die cuts and buttons to the top left corner of the image.  I don't know why, but I always seem to put buttons on cards for little ones!
The sweet little bunnies were cut with a memory box die.  I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Ribbon Girl DT - Anything Goes

 Good morning!  I hope you're having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend!  Today sees the start of this month's card challenge over on the Ribbon Girl blog.  As always our theme is 'Anything Goes'.
 It was a perfect opportunity to have a play with some of the new stamps from Magnolia.  This time I have masked Daffodil Tilda with the Vintage Orangerie.  I've painted the scene with Distress Inks and added Glossy Accents to the windows.
 I have used  the leaf, butterfly and envelope dies from the Vintage Box 1 kit from Magnolia.  The gorgeous soft blue cherry blossoms are from The Ribbon Girl.
 The pale pink roses, button twine, laces and trowel charm are also from The Ribbon Girl.  How cute is that trowel for gardening themed cards?!
 I have added some details to Tilda with a white gel pen: the dots on her cheeks and the dots in her hair.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at The Ribbon Girl.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Tilda with Spring Flowers

 Good morning!  Hopefully I'm still in bed when you're reading this as a lie in is definitely in order on this Bank Holiday weekend!  This week I received some of the adorable new stamps from the Spring Fever collection from Magnolia-licious and I couldn't wait to get playing with them!
 This Tilda, Tilda with Spring Flowers, has shot straight to the top of my all time favourites list!  She is the most adorable cutie I've seen for a long time.  There is just something about her tiny profile and wispy hair.  I have painted her with Distress Inks as always, using the no lines technique.  
 I have added some gorgeous lace from The Ribbon Girl along with a fence cut with the Lovely Fence Doohickey die.
 I have also cut some butterflies with Spellbinders dies and added pearls to their centres.  

 The cheesecloth and roses are from The Ribbon Girl too.  The tickets were cut with another Doohickey die and the leaves are the Lovely Tendril die from Memory Box.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  Have a lovely weekend! x

Magnolia-licious DT - Anything Goes

 
Good morning!  It is time for another Magnolia-licious Challenge and our theme for this one is 'Anything Goes'.
 As soon as this cutie, Daffodil Tilda, dropped through my letter box I had to ink her and paint her the very same day!  I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and I have added some tiny pearls to her shoes.
 I thought I'd have a go at making some Daffodils to match the ones Tilda is holding.  Strictly speaking, of course, they should have six petals, but my die only had five and the ones Tilda is holding only have five too so I went with it!  I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out in the end.  I think you can safely tell what they are supposed to be!  The lilac hydrangea is from my stash and the white flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.
 The Daffodil leaves were created with a Doohickey die from one of last year's kits and the lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
 The scalloped circle tags are also Doohickey dies, from another kit.  The butterflies were cut from some Webster's Pages paper.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.

All About Magnolia DT - All About Flowers

 Good morning!  It is time for our mid way reminder post at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Our theme this month is 'All About Flowers'.  I had lots of fun making this card with an old Tilda and lots of hand made elements!
 I'm not sure on this Tilda's name, but I think she's from around 2006 so she's very old (in stamp years lol).  I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added Stardust Stickles to her wings.
 The flowers are from The Ribbon Girl, as is the lace and button twine.
All of the tiny butterflies were cut from the backing paper.
 The straws and the pin wheels are hand made by me - I had a lot of fun creating these!

Mangolia-licious DT - Celebrations!


Good morning!  It is time for another Magnolia-licious Challenge and this time our theme is 'Anything Goes' with the option of 'Celebrations'.  So, any celebration is acceptable, Christening, Wedding, Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, etc.  I have created a 40th birthday card.
The birthday isn't the right month to use Pisces Tilda but she is just so dreamy and beautiful I couldn't resist using her!  I have used the no lines technique and painted her with Distress Inks.  I have added dots to her cheeks with a white gel pen, Stardust Stickles to the bubbles and her tail and Glossy Accents to the water.  
The pink and white flowers are poppies from Live and Love crafts and the blue roses is from my stash.  The gorgeous die cut butterfly has been cut with a Spellbinders die. 
The 40 was cut with a Memory Box die from some glitter paper I recycled from last year's Christmas crackers.  The cheesecloth is from The Ribbon Girl.
The berry branches were also cut with a Memory Box die and the butterfly border die is from Joy Crafts.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.
