Cuddly Horse and Angel with Violin


Ain't this little stamp sweet???  Thought it was perfect for a baby card!  This the MINI #611 Cuddly Horse.  Can you tell I'm kinda addicted to these minis??!!!

The edges are the MINI #19 ZIG ZAG AND SCALLOP DooHickey Die.  I've found these are perfect for just that little added trim.  Used some paper I've had for ages, water colored with Distress Inks, words and oval punches are Stampin' Up!,  Stardust pen for accents and buttons with thread to finish it off.

Also finished off another card I had started.

MINI #3064 TILDA WITH VIOLIN
#645 SILENT NIGHT BACKGROUND
#6 BON VOYAGE FOLIAGE
#22 VINTAGE FLOWERS AND LEAVES
#8 DOILY FLOWERS
The flowers are a little overpowering, but went with them anyway!  Kinda partial to those dies too!!!  Stamped Angel Tilda in Versafine Vintage Sepia for a softer look.  The stamped images in the background are the Bliss set from Stampin' Up! using white craft ink.   Used oval Spellbinder dies, white gel pen, water colored and distressed with the Distress Inks and added pearls and stickles.
You can find your Magnolia stamps HERE at Diana's Magnolia-licious.

I should quit playing and get to my taxes!!!  Hmmmm wonder what will win out???

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy every day!!!

Hi Dear Friend!
you have been busy. I love your mini horses. what a lovely idea for a baby card. Your layout is great with the zig zag and scallop DooHickey die. Lovely soft colors.

I love your Tilda with violin card. Gorgeous with the music sheet behind her. It wasn't until I zoomed in that I could see the stamped white flowers on the background paper. Terrific job.
your flowers look awesome and not overpowering. Love those colors together.
hugs Maz

Patti Jo, please, PLEASE come by my house and show me your creative process!! There isn't a single card of yours that I don't fall in love with. You are the best commercial for Diana's awesome mini's there is! These are both fantastic, but I'm quite partial to the Cuddly Horse baby card. Perhaps it's the soft colors or just the cute little buttons that mimic the wee horses...both cards are absolutely adorable!
Hugs, hugs,
Barb
