Tilda In The Garden Birthday Card

We have another photo inspiration for you for this week's challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog. Here is our photo inspiration.

I love these colors. So I made a center step card using these colors.

This pretty Tilda is Tilda in Garden from Magnolia and my papers are from Prima Marketing called Annalee. I used the heart swirl doohickey die by Magnolia, a MS border punch and butterfly punch, and spellbinder die.  The rolled flower was made from an MFT die and I also used flowers from WOC.

I hope you can play along with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog.You could win a fabulous gift certificate to Magnolia-licious. See you there and thanks for stopping by!

The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge - TOMIC Challenge #2

It's time for another challenge at TOMIC.  As I told you last time, the DT has been split up into several groups and I'm in Group 1, so I get to play today.  We have a color challenge for you this week and the colors are PINK, BROWN, and WHITE.  Here is my card:

I love making these stair step cards. There's lots of room to add all kinds of details and dimension to your scenes.  I've been wanting to use these cute Magnolia elf images for a long time and I decided this was the time to use them even if it isn't Christmas.  They are meant to be Christmas elves but I changed them to be garden gnomes and paired them up with Make It Crafty's Mushroom house.  These 2 images are:  Sitting Alva and Alva With Flower from the Jingle Jangle Collection 2008. I thought I had Alf also in my collection but apparently I do not   :(    he would have made a nice addition to this scene.  I also used Magnolia's Big Daisy (Jingle Jangle collection), Hugo the Snail (Sweet Rainbow collection),  Mushroom with Snail (Sweet Rainbow collection), and Small Snail (from Fairytale collection).

I used several Doohickey dies on this card also. They are:  Heart Swirl, Leaf and Swirl die, and the Fence doohickey die.

I used the following copics to color this scene: R85, R83, R81, RV11, RV10, W3, W1, W00, C9, C3, C1, C00, E11, E02, E01, E00, E000, R20, E53, E51, E50, G99, YG97, YG95, YG93, G21, G20, E74, E71, E70, E35, YR23, Y23, Y21, Y000 - I think that's everything.

Well, that's it for now. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog today and thank you so much for any comments you may leave, they are always appreciated! Have a great day!

Another Wedding Cake w/Bride Tilda

Hello there! I had so much fun making my last "cake" that I had to make another.  For today's Wedding /Shower Cake, I used Bride Tilda from Magnolia.  I used a purple and white color scheme today.

My boxes are by Melissa Frances and I got them from Love To Stamp. Aren't they fun? You can do so many things with these boxes.  I used my spellbinder dies to create most of the flowers on this project. I also added several flowers from WOC. The butterflies were punched out using my Martha Stewart punch and then I covered them with stickles. The pearls and beads were from my stash.

The copic colors I used for this project are: C00, C1, C3, BV13, BV11, BV0000, G21, G20, YR23, Y23, Y21, Y000, E11, E00, E000, R20.
