Simple Mini Maggies

I can see I am not the only one that is hooked on these Minis!!!  Sooo cute and fun to work with aren't they???!!!  Wanted to make some simple cards to give away as gifts and are easy to mail.  Us card makers are accustomed to paying higher postage to mail our extra embellished cards, but others are not use to that!!!

On this card I used a Stampin' Up! embossing folder and cut out an opening and made a frame with Nestabilities dies.  Mini Tilda With Christmas Letters is sitting on Santa's Bench and  popped up on a circle adhered to the inside of the card so it shows through the opening on the front of the card.  She is colored with ProMarkers and added Stardreams Gel pen and Crystal Lacquer for some sparkle.  These minis are the perfect size for this kind of card!
Another simple card using the adorable minis  New Years Tilda and New Years Edwin sitting on Santa's Bench.  Santa's Bench is easily transformed to be able to use any time of year too...not just the holidays.

Used a Swirl Stamp from Inkadinkadoo, Happy Anniversary stamp from Studio G, Cuttlebug embossing folder, ProMarkers, Stardust Pen and ribbon.  My favorite little Buddy tool the Scor-Buddy was used to make the embossed frame! 
The very sweet Diana has recently listed even more of these cute minis from different collections!  You just have to check them out HERE at Magnolia-licious!   She does have a deal on a bundle offer too, but hurry, I believe she said the bundles were limited!  Love it.......don't have to make decisions that way!!!  And then there are gift certificates available too!

Made nine of the next card to use for Christmas cards.  So wanted to add the mini Winter Forest to the globe, but even as insane as I am, I just couldn't bring myself to cutting them out for nine cards.  I will be looking for something to stamp them on though because yup, they are so darn cute!
Loved the full size version of Tilda With Fir, so getting the mini Tilda With Fir was inevitable!  Seems like cute and adorable just go with any of these minis!

The "snow" is cut out of white glitter paper, the base of the globe is brown cardstock and scored on the Scor-Buddy.  The acetate was cut with a Sizzix Ornament die.  Little Tilda With Fir was colored with ProMarkers and used the white and Stardust gel pens to jazz things up a little.  Season's Greetings stamp by Stampendous was stamped with Black Stazon Ink directly on the acetate.  Added a little of Martha's Bakers Twine and Punch Bunch holly leaves and 1/8" circle punch berries.

I'm finding it is hard to describe these minis with words other than cute and adorable!  Anyone have any other good descriptions????!!!

Comment about the weather here in Minnesota!  Cold and White!!!  I'm beginning to only like snow in the form of paper only!!!  And it isn't even winter yet!!!!  :)

Enjoy every day!!!

Hi Patti Jo!
I love your card with the circle cutout. Love that embossing folder and how you used it. You seem to have mastered those ProMarkers in such a short time. Love that mini Tilda with Christmas letters.
Your second card is lovely too. I really like the swirl stamp on it and the way you have done the ribbon.
Your acetate globe is totally adorable. Just gotta try one of these. Love that cute mini Tilda with fir and so beautifully colored. she looks lovely and bright so shows up perfectly.
Love how you have the snow cap and the snow at her feet.
Real nice how you photographed it with the green background. Super projects.
Hugs Maz

Janie Printz said...

Oh My Goodness Patti Jo, I am soooo in love with these sweet little mini Maggies !!! You always make the cutest cards & now they are even more adorable using those tiny images on them. Hard to believe they have all the detail as the larger ones but I've heard nothing but great reviews from the ladies I've talked to that have gotten them. All your cards are beautiful but that snow globe really caught my eye. I MUST have that mini among many others....
Hugs, Janie

Sharon Caudle said...

They're all soooo adorable, Patti Jo!! I love what you're doing with the minis! They scared me so much when I first saw the size of the actual stamp, but they're truly awesome! Love your cards!!
hugs, Sharon

Candy said...
