Tilda With Butterfly

Good morning to you!  I'm back again today with another card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog.  Our theme this week is Butterflies.

I've used Sitting Tilda with Butterfly on my card today. These gorgeous papers are by Maja Designs and I've used some beautiful flowers from I Am Roses to embellish my card with.  I've used 3 Doohickey dies today and they are the Swirl Doohickey die, Events Flags Doohickey die, and Tilda Doily.

Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your day! xo

Lucky Edwin

Hi Everyone! Happy Memorial Day to you. I am currently at a picnic at my Aunt's house enjoying the first sunny day all weekend. We've had nothing but pouring rain and chilly temperatures during this long holiday weekend.  I actually had to build a fire in my wood burning stove to take the chill off.

Well, thanks for joining me today for Mini Monday at Magnolia-licious.  Today I used two stamps that fit perfectly together and that is Lucky Edwin and Golden Creek Background both in mini form.

I found a WANTED template, a REWARD template, and SHERIFF star off the computer and just printed them out on my color printer to embellish my card with. Aren't they fun?

Make sure to check out my DT mates fabulous cards at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog.  Thanks for stopping by!

Tilda's Carriage

Good morning everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. We had beautiful sunny days here and spent time cleaning up the yard to get ready to plant some flowers and vegetables. We also tore down our pool that was destroyed by the last hurricane we had. So sorry to see it go but we plan to replace it with an inground pool this spring. We are very excited about that.

Well today the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge is to use vellum on our cards/projects.  The DT has some beautiful inspiration to show you.  Here is my project:

I've made a carriage/coach gift basket (pattern from My Time Made Easy).  Perfect to use with this beautiful Tilda in Cotton Dress.  The vellum that I used in my project is the polka dot vellum behind the window.

My designer papers is from Little Darlings - Summer Sorbet Collection. I love the colors in this paper pack. I've embellished with pearls and flowers, some trim,  and tied a bow with pretty pink gingham ribbon.

I've filled my coach with some chocolates.

Well, that's all for today. I hope you enjoyed my project.  Thanks for visiting me today. Have a great day!

Mini Tilda with Prince Froggy Cupcake

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend?  Spent most of my weekend watching softball games but we also celebrated my older daughter's 15th birthday. I can't believe how the time flies.  She's in her first year at high school now and working hard to keep her grades up.  I'm so proud of her.  

So for Mini Monday today, I wanted to share with you this cupcake treat box/gift box that I made for my daughter, Elena.  I used a pattern from My Time Made Easy for the Cupcake Box. I've decorated it with ribbons and trim from my stash and used papers from MME - Blush paper pack. I made the cherry on top using Doo Bee Pops honeycomb papers from Magnolia.

The mini image I used today is Tilda with Price Froggy from the 2013 Once Upon A Time collection.
I stamped her on a Vintage Tag Doohickey die cut.

On the back of the tag is my sentiment and I embellished with a cupcake that I made with paper clay and a Martha Stewart mold, then I colored the cupcake with my copics.

Here is another picture of just the cupcake.

I hope you enjoyed my project today. This was so fun to make and made with love for my daughter.

Have a great day everyone!

Princess Tilda with Ballet Shoes

Hi Everyone! Today is Tuesday and we have a new challenge for you at Magnolia-licious.  Our theme is buttons, bows, or beads. Use 1 or 2 or all 3.  I used all three (if you consider the pearls as beads).

Have a look at this adorable new Tilda from the Once Upon a Time Collection 2013.  This is Princess Tilda With Ballet Shoes that came in the spring kit. I love the curly haired Tildas as I happen to have a curly haired daughter (who flat irons every day - LOL).  The butterflies and crown also came in the kit.

You can find all these stamps at Magnolia-licious as well as the So Wrapped Lovely Heart Doohickey Tag die.

I will enter this card at the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting me today.  Please stop by my DT mates' blogs to see more inspiration! Have a great day!

Tilda With Egg and Chicken

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for another Magnolia-licious Challenge.  "Spring Projects" is the theme for this week.  I'm still in Easter creations mode so here is a little basket I made:

I used my Spellbinder Grand Scallop Nestabilities (largest size) for the creation of this basket. I'm in love with this adorable Easter Tilda image, this stamp is called Tilda With Egg and Chicken and currently out of stock at Magnolia-licious but I'm sure more are on order for you.

My image is colored with copics and embellished with Martha Stewart butterflies and gems, trim,  and WOC flowers. I've filled my basket with Hershey kisses.

Last week, my kids were home from school for winter break and they kept me pretty busy so I didn't post as often as I wanted.  But I'm back this week and have loads to show you!

    Well, it's time for a new challenge today at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog and our challenge is to make a boy card or card for a boy.  So here is what I came up with:

    Birthday Tri-Shutter Card

    Hi Everyone!   I've made a tri-shutter card to share with you today:

    Images used today are Charming Edwin and Up Up and Away both from the 2013 Love Collection.

    Here is a pic with the card closed:

    I made the flowers using a circular die from MFT.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the swirl or flourish is a Doohickey die.  My papers are by Webster's Pages.

    I found these cute metal sayings at Joanne Fabrics and included them on my card:

    Instructions for making a tri-shutter card can be found at Splitcoast Stampers.  Here is a link.

    I would love to know what you think of my card and look forward to reading any comments you may leave. Thanks so much!   Have a great day!
