Easter Treat Basket

We have a photo inspiration challenge for you at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog today.  Here is the photo:


Yum!! What  a pretty cake! I saw this cute basket on splitcoaststampers and decided to try to make one myself.

I used 2 sweet Magnolia images for this project. They are: Tilda Holding Egg Basket and Mini Tilda With Straw Hat. These mini images are the perfect size to use with the folded Doohickey tag dies. I used the Heart Folded Doohickey die by Magnolia.




Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll play along with our challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Have a great day!

Sleeping Baby Tingla Votive holder

Time for another color challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog.  I've challenged the team to pick any 3 colors of the rainbow:


Here is my creation today using yellow, purple and blue primarily:


 I saw this really  cute votive candle holder template on Stempeleinmaleins and wanted to try to make one.  I thought it would be fun as a little present or decoration for a baby room.  Instead of a real candle, I've used one of those little battery operated votive candles.  These come in handy and I bought a bunch of them. Love this template, I think I'll make one for my daughter's room too.

Here is a close up photo:


I've used Sleeping Baby Tingla from the Cozy Family Autumn Collection and Sweet Moon from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection.  These lovely papers are by Magnolia also and from the Sweet Rainbow Collection.

Other supplies used: Spellinder stars die, stickes, walnut distress ink, heart crystal hanging from the moon and a button and brad from my stash, and I used copics to color my images:  E21, E00, E000, R20, E55, E53, E51, Y000, B91, B000, B0000.

Hope you liked my project today. Thanks for stopping by.

Tilda Bookmark

Oh I just love this Stamping Tilda and couldn't wait to make something with her. So I made one of these fast and easy little bookmarks that I always see around blogland. 


I colored Tilda with my favorite copics and prisma pencil combination. Here is my bookmark in action, this is the 2011 Easter edition:


The 2012 issue called Cherry Blossoms and Lilacs will be available soon from Magnolia-licious. You don't want to miss the gorgeous projects in this issue.


That's it for me today. Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!

Bottle decoration

Oooo I really struggled with this next challenge at TOMIC. We were challenged to make a bottle decoration.  I just couldn't think which Magnolia would be appropriate for this task so I made a tag and used this adorable Tilda from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection, this is Tilda with Peony Tails.


Here's a closeup of the tag:


We also have to add at least 2 butterflies to our creation for this challenge. I added 3 butterflies punched out with my Martha Stewart paper punch.  I used 2 spellbinder dies combined to create this tag. Then I embossed the top part of the tag.

That's all for now folks! Thanks for taking a look at my bottle decoration today and I hope you will play along with our challenge at TOMIC! Have a great day!
