Tilda With Bike

Happy Saturday to you all!  It's almost June and SUMMER! Can't wait for the hot weather and spending some time with the kids outside in the pool and at the beach. We had ourselves a long and snowy winter here in CT this year.

Well, today at Make It Colourful our challenge is to color something yellow and purple.  So here is the card I prepared today:


I created this fun little scene using the Wonky House on Hill from Make It Crafty and also using several Magnolia images ie; Tilda With Bike, Tree, Little Birds, and Sun.    


Thanks so much for your visit and for always leaving me such sweet and positive comments on my cards. They mean the world to me! Have a great weekend.

Tilda With Armful of Tulips

Good morning! We have a photo inspiration for you this week at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog. Here is the photo:


I struggled a bit to figure out what to make for this one, but I chose to go with the purple and yellow color scheme and made this card:



I have to say, I really love this combination of colors and I'm so glad I got to use this gorgeous Tilda. She has to be my favorite of this collection and the wheelbarrow goes perfectly with this image. This sentiment is also by Magnolia.

LOOK! I finished off the inside too!

Inks: Memento ink and copics (V17, V15, V12, V0000, YG97, YG95, YG93, G21, G20,  C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, E35, YR23, Y23, Y11, Y000, E39, E37, E33, E31, R20, E000, E00, E11)

Magnolia Wedding Cake

Our challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog (brought to you by Norma) is to use the colors black and white and 1 other color on your card/project. I decided to go with an "off the page" project today.





I made a wedding cake inspired by the "royal wedding" using this couple that I got from Magnolia Unfortunately, I slept through the entire royal wedding on TV but thank goodness for all the news coverage as I got caught up real fast. I can remember all those years ago when I was a child waking up early just to watch the prince's parents get married - I can't believe I slept through this one LOL!

The boxes and pink tissue paper fringe I used are from Love To Stamp and they are by Melissa Francis. Wouldn't this "cake" make a lovely wedding or shower favor? I covered the boxes with embossed white DCWV papers (which is hard to see in this photo). I also used some lace, pearls, pearl string, and feather boa that I had in my stash.  Flowers are from WOC.

Copics used today are:  E11, E00, E000, R20, C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, E35, E33, E31, Y000, R85, RV10, G21, G20

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Would love to hear what you think of my project - your comments mean alot to me! Have a great day!

Magnolia Mini Card Fronts

Good morning friends! I have a few card fronts to show you that I made using some Magnolia mini images. These card fronts will be sent to Diana at Magnolia-licious to display at the next CHA.



For this card front, I used Tilda with an armful of tulips mini image and also Trees in a row full size image. My image is colored with copics and the butterfly paper is also by Magnolia.


This photo is to show you the dimension. I cut the trees out and popped them up with pop dots. Also the diecut grass is popped up a bit.


In this card front, I used mini Tilda with big ribbon and the full size Windmill image from Magnolia. All are colored with copics. This gorgeous Webster's Pages paper can be found at Love To Stamp.



This picture is to show that I cut the "fan" part of the windmill out and popped them up with pop dots.



In this photo, I used mini Jam Tilda and coupled her with this cute Alota Rubberstamps house (which doesn't seem to be available at Magnolia right now).

Well, that's it for now. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! :)
