You Make Me Smile

Finally got a chance to try out the new Magnolia DooHickey Dies!  Just love 'em and can't wait for the new ones coming out too!!!  So addicted!!!!  I use a Cuttlebug and they cut really nice!

Anyone recognize the striped paper?  Kind of buried the lace frame with all the leaves and ferns, but it's there!

Supplies used:
Magnolia stamps-#499 Hummingbird, #704 You Make Me Smile
Magnolia DooHickey Dies- #2 Peony Petals, #3 Tilda Lace, #4 Leaf and Swirl
Punch Bunch Sun and Jack Punches
Distress Inks-Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord
Ribbon, Foam Tape, Glaze Pen

The leaves were cut from the petals of the Peony Petal die and I watercolored the Hummingbird with the Distress Inks.

Diana is taking Pre-Orders for these dies plus the new ones.  Looks like the You Make Me Smile stamp is out right now, but check with her about when she will have more.  The Hummingbird is available at the Magnolia-licious store HERE.

Have you figured out where the stripe paper is from?  It is the paper in the Magnolia stamp packages!  So cute, didn't want it to go to waste!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the day!

A Sailin' We Will Go!

What a fun theme to have for this month's Magnolia-licious Blog Hop....Nautical!!! Perfect with the new Bon Voyage Stamps.

You may have sailed here from Angie Hunt's wonderful blog, then you are right on track. If you stopped by on your own, you can go to Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to find the list to start from the beginning. Plus there is information on how you can join in on the challenge too!

Loved this porthole with the ship sailing and the curling waves! Adorable little pelican too!

Embossed the images and words in Silver Embossing Powder and colored with the Distress Inks. The background paper is Magnolia Blue Starlit from Once Upon a Time collection. So versatile. Sponged some Antique Linen and also some Broken China on the paper to tie in with the rest of the scene. Added some mesh and silver cording along with using Silver Mirror Cardstock. Highlighted the ship and waves with Crystal Lacquer and used a Glaze White Pen for the clouds and wave crests. Of course, need that 3D look, so pieces are popped up with foam tape.
