Magnolia Notes

I made a nice tablet holder at Crafters Haven in Minneapolis the other day.  For my Dr. Monday MD (Minis and Dies) project, I took it home and added some more things to it.  Had to make it 3D of course!!!  Loved the Graphics 45 paper and thought the minis would work well on the postcard type paper.

You can find the Minis and Dies at Diana's great Magnolia-licious online store:
MINI A21 TILDA WITH LACE PANTS
DH 44 SWIRLY LACE DIE
DH 84 EDWINS RECTANGLE LACE DIE
DH 93 SWIRL DIE
PS 807 GENTLE LEAF DIE
MB 203 NORRLAND FLOWER DIES
Did a little aging on the papers with distress ink.  Tilda is colored with Promarkers.  Also some pearls added.  Didn't get a chance to jazz up the inside, it was very plain, so didn't photograph it.  The tablet size is 6" x 9" and just glued onto the inside back cover.  The cover is made from chipboard covered with the Graphic 45 paper.

Now Barb Hardeman has been busy creating more fabulous treasures!  Stop by her blog Stampelicious to see the adorable note cards and box she made showcasing the minis!

If you are looking for some more inspiration, be sure to check out the design team cards and projects at the Magnolia-licious Card Gallery.  Link is HERE.  You will see lots of great ideas using both past and present Magnolia stamps and others.

Thanks so much for stopping  by and I appreciate your comments!  Enjoy every day!

Mistletoe Tilda Card

Experimenting with a few things!  I colored the Mistletoe with alcohol markers and used the Shabby Embossing Enamel for the first time.  Will need a little practice, but one Christmas card done!!!  This is  my project for the Dr. Monday MD  (Minis and Dies)!

Check in to Magnolia-licious to find the things I used:
MINI 353 CHRISTMAS EVE TILDA
DH 16 MISTLETOE BORDER DIE
DH 64 WAVE LACE DIE
DH 27 SO WRAPPED MERRY CHRISTMAS

Used just half of the Merry Christmas tag, but this is a nice die to make the folded over tag and put an extra message inside too.  Coloring the Mistletoe with the markers was really easy and gives such a different look than just a colored card stock.  Love the Wave Lace border die due to the fact it can be used for waves or scallops...just depends what side of the card stock you use!  Tilda is colored with Promarkers and had a chance to try out the Stampin' Up Blendabilities.  I like the red combo that I didn't have in the Promarkers.

Check in on what is happening at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and join in.    Christmas in July Challenge     Good way to get started with Christmas cards too!

Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy Every Day!!!

Sweet Birthday Tilda Card

Our Sweet Little Tilda is floating in on a balloon to wish someone Happy Birthday!!!  Dr. Monday MD day with minis and dies!

Some fun dies and mini Tilda are from Diana at Magnolia-licious:

I've added some white gel pen for accents and a thread bow.  Also used Spellbinder oval dies and Stampin' Up! oval punches.  The paper is some from a long time ago from Deja View.  Tilda is colored with Promarkers.  I've also stamped some light green dots around too!

There is another special for the 2nd Volume of the Doohickey Die Club.  Click HERE to check it out and get an order in.  The first round had sold out!

Wetlands Canadian Goose Card

How many years has the Wetlands set been available???  Well I finally got it.  Loved the geese and assortment of stamps in this set.  I did a modified version of a card set I saw on Splitcoast Stampers.  Loved her combination of colors.

We had six adult geese with a total of 11 goslings by the creek this year and they were so fun to watch.

I masked the horizon line and sponged on Tempting Turquoise.  Removed the mask and then sponge Soft Suede for the ground, then Soft Sky for the sky.  Stamped the weeds and the goose in Soft Suede.  Sponged Garden green at the bottom.  Stamped the goose with black ink and then cut out and layered on top of the one stamped in brown.  Stamped the Thinking of You in black, added rivets and layered and tied off with linen thread.  Very easy and great to have available for a guy card.

Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy Every Day!

Heart Window Thanks!

Used the wonderful new Heart Window!  Perfect size for the Minis or could even put a real picture in it!  This is my project for Dr. Monday MD using Minis and Dies.  Gotta love those dies and the variations that can be made with them!

You can find these lovelies at Diana's terrific online store Magnolia-licious:
MINI A19 SUMMER STRAWBERRY TILDA
DH 55 HEART WINDOW DIE
DH 48 JUNGLE LEAVES DIE
DH 61 STRAWBERRY DIES - leaves
DH 75 PEONIES DIES
MB 202 BLOOMING VIOLET DIES
MB 66 PEPITA BORDER DIE
MB 27 FAUNTLEROY CREST DIE
MB 201 A LITTLE THANKS DIE

I've used a couple of strips of the Pepita border to make a lattice type pattern on the bottom.  The Fauntleroy Crest actually has the middle covered up and just the tendrils show.  It is a nice border die for guy cards too!  I've used the Strawberry Die leaves for the leaves for these flowers.  Thought they were a good size to go with the Peonies.  The center of the flowers is one of the dies from the violet set.  I've also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Spellbinder dies.

To make the Thanks stand up from the frame, I cut five layers of the thanks and put them together with a two way glue pen.  Gave it some dimension.


If you missed out on the last Mini Club, there is a new one set up and you can check it out HERE!   Great way to add to our collections and at a such fantastic price!  Diana is a generous soul, so you can be sure to find lots of goodies included!!!

Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy Every Day!

Love these new jungle leaves dies.  I've used two of the three that come in this set.  Also the Lily of the Valley are so sweet.  Edwin's Rectangle Lace dies come in a set of three also and I've used two of them here.

The word stamp is a Stampin' Up stamp, the embossing folder is Sizzix and the label die is a spellbinders die.  Tilda has been colored with Promarkers and I've used a white gel pen for accents along with some ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy every day!

Fourth of July Decoration - Summer Theme Blog Hop

Yeah!!!!   Summer...nice to finally have it here!   If you have come from Chrissy Christensen you are skipping along the right direction.  How cute was her Summer Fun Bucket!!!!  Great idea!!!  If you have come on your own, you will want to start at the beginning so you don't miss any of the fabulous creations from the terrific Design Team of Magnolia-licious.  The order is listed HERE at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

I've created a Fourth of July decoration using some of the fun dies and a cutie Tilda to perch on the edge!  You can find these and other great things at Magnolia-licious!!!  Here are the links for the things I used:
317 VIRGO TILDA
DH 43 STAR TAG DIE
DH 69 TEA LABEL SHAPES - STAR DIE
DH 14 TRIPLE TAGS DIE
DH  25 GRASS DIE
DH 19 MINI ZIGZAG AND SCALLOP DIE

This Tilda has something in her hand, but I removed it hoping I had a little American Flag to put in her hand, but couldn't find one at the time.  Where I used the grass die might be a little hard to find, but I used blue card stock and it is at the base of the firecracker rockets.  Love those multipurpose dies!!!

Have used skewers to adhere the stars and Tilda to stick inside the jar and also rolled paper around the skewers to make the firecracker rockets.  The letters were from a Sizzlet Alphabet.
