Magnolia-licious - Card for a Boy

Hi Everyone!  Hope you are doing well today?  I can't believe how quickly this month has flown by, before you know it, it will be Spring. I can't wait! I have had enough snow to last a lifetime. 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:

A closeup:

And here is the inside of my card:


Stamps - Magnolia - Tilda Gone Fishing, Edwin Waiting for a Fish, (I think my background stamp is by I Brake For Stamps purchased a couple years ago).
Ink - Copics, Memento ink, Distress ink

I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week so you can be in the running for a special surprise from Magnolia-licious.  Thanks for taking the time to visit me today.

Have a great day! xo

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!

Love is in the Air

Hi Everyone!  I have made a shadowbox card that I'd like to share with you today.  I've used many Magnolias from the current collection.  I hope you like it!

My background paper is by Magnolia and I tried to mimick the hydrangea flowers in the patterned paper with my diecut flowers.  I sponged the flowers with Faded Jeans distress ink.

My images are colored with copics (but too many to list here).

Following are the images I used:

Tilda With Heart Spots
Tilda With Love Music
Sneezing Tilda
Tilda With Heart Socks (from Sweet Crazy Love Collection)
Bird Background (from Sweet Rainbow Collection) - link to mini image

Doohickey dies used:

Lovely Fence
Heart Swirl
Grass die

I've also used  the Spellbinder grand square die and scallop die.

Well that's it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend! Most of the east coast are getting ready for a big storm coming tomorrow.  Be safe everyone!
