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!

Wow! You just added the Peony Die to my wishlist, you enabler! LOL! Beautiful card! The hummingbird is amazing!

Gorgeous! LOVELY! Beautiful Patti Jo!!! Love how you shaped the flower and then made the leaves too! I'm glad you used mostly stuff I already own! lol I don't have the bird though, but love what you did with it here! I've often thought that Magnolia packaging should be used... but oh my, you can only save so much stuff! lol I do have some of it though.. it should be a challenge for the challenge blog! TFS your fabulous creation!

Beautiful card...as always! Somehow I missed that Magnolia now has dies! This could be dangerous to the budget!
