Mini Sweet Tilda

Sweet Tilda is such a cutie image.  As I've said before, love these minis to add to the A2 size cards (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").

You can find Mini Sweet Tilda HERE at Diana's Magnolia-licious.  Best place to get your Magnolia stamps for both the excellent prices and wonderful customer service.

Also used dies from Spellbinders-ovals and Cuttlebug corners and flower and leaf punches from Punch Bunch.  Watercolored Tilda with Distress Inks and added stardust and white gel pens plus Ranger Enamel Accents for the centers of the flowers.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend!
Enjoy every day!

Wedding Day Blog Hop

Today is the Magnolia-licious Highlites WEDDING DAY blog hop!  If you have arrived from the Master of Cute Angie Hunt’s blog, you have come down the aisle to the right spot.  If you came on your own, you will want to check out all the wonderful Wedding Day projects from the Design Team starting HERE to start at the beginning and get the details.

The challenge is to create a wedding card and also a wedding project with of course Magnolia stamps and also using the Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy.  With so many great project directions on the site, it was hard to choose, but I picked both a fun card and a box.

The Magnolia products that I used between both projects are from Diana at Magnolia-licious.  You'll want to shop at her store for the best service and nicest people!!!
First is the card which was designed by Cambria Turnbow and the directions are HERE at the Scor-Pal site. 
Used three of the papers from the wedding collection, inked the edges with antique linen distress ink and matted them with gold metallic card stock frames.  Also used the gold metallic card stock for the ovals cut from Spellbinders dies and the Sizzlet scallop heart die.

Colored the bridal couple with distress inks and the words are computer generated.  “Love” is a Sizzlet die.
The flowers and leaves are made with the Magnolia Vintage Flowers and Leaves dies plus a mini sun punch for the center of the flowers.

Accents are amber rhinestones, gold cord, and the tiny hearts are the punch outs from the Magnolia Romantic Lace Border I used on the box.

TIP:  Although I kept the flowers flat, with all the matting, it became quite thick to fold up.  So a tip if you are going to make it this thick, probably do a double scoring about 1/8” in between sections.  It will take some figuring, but then it will close properly!!!
Then there is the Marriage Advice box!  This would make a great little extra to have on the table next to the guest book.  This is for the guests to give their little tidbits of wisdom to the new couple of how to achieve marital bliss!!!

The box pattern directions are HERE at the Scor-Pal site.
Using most of the same things from the card, I did add the Romantic Lace Border in the gold metallic card stock around the bottom of the box plus added a Stampin’ Up! hardware frame and brads.  The note cards inside the box are stamped in gold ink with the Loving Border stamp and the edges sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Now to continue on down the aisle, you will want to go to the Fabulously Creative Sharon to see what wonderful projects she has created!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Enjoy every day!!!

Who is in the Shadows?

Looking for something different to try???  There are some stamp companies that have been putting out some silhouette stamps lately and I thought we could make our Maggie stamps into silhouettes too!!!  Without looking at my supply list, can you guess which stamps I made into silhouettes on these cards?
I stamped the African sun (using this as a moon for these cards).  Since the images are going to be colored in solid anyway, it is not necessary to even mask.  Stamped the images and then colored them with a black Sharpie pen, water colored the "moon" with a little Weathered Wood Distress Ink and sponged around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

Used Spellbinders lacey square and circle and one of the tags from the new grommet set.  Also sponged some Faded Jeans on the tag.  The Happy Anniversary stamp is a Studio G stamp.

Did you guess the right stamps?

They are:

Just had to add a few flowers too and used Doohickey dies:

Embossed one background with the Stampin' Up Tulip Border and the other with Cuttlebug Cassies Brocade embossing folders.  Sanded the embossed parts with a sanding block.  Added mini sun punched centers and rhinestones to the flowers and a little Stardust Stickles to the moon with white gel pen on the clouds.

You can find Magnolia stamps HERE at Diana's Magnolia-licious store.  Don't forget to look through her gallery on this website too.   There are tons of wonderful cards and projects to check out for inspiration.

Now a little challenge for you is to check out your stamps and see which ones might work good for silhouhettes.  Would love to see what you do with them, so please let me know!

Thank you for stopping by and you know I always appreciate the comments!

Enjoy every day!

May Sketch -Tilda With Big Ribbon

What a wonderful sketch Suzanne has come up with for the May Challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites!  This is such a nice layout and right up my too!!!

Used the lovely mini Big Bow Tilda sitting daintily on the mini Vintage Couch.  Did a different flower with leaves and ferns using the DooHickey dies along with the Spellbinders Parisian motif and border die.

Magnolia Supplies (click on item to go directly to it):
#15 POINSETTIA FLOWERS  (for leaves)

Thought the Emblem stamp with Versamark ink gave the background just a subtle watermark Victorian look to go with the Vintage Couch.  It is a terrific stamp for this type of background and also great for wedding cards.
 The paper was just a small piece I had around and also used a Hero Arts word stamp.
Coloring is water colored with the distress inks and added pearls and gel pens for accents.

Hope you will join us for this challenge.  That sweet lady Diana from Magnolia-licious has offered another great gift certificate for the prize!

Enjoy every day!!!
