Good evening! We have our first challenge starting tonight at Magnolia Down Under Challenges since our Christmas break and our theme is a Bingo board. I have chosen the column 'fancy folds, masking and make your own embellishments.'
I have made a double Z fold card complete with a band to keep it closed. I have made flowers for the band using Doohickey dies and butterflies using a stamp from Stempelglede's Vintage Baby stamp set. The blossoms are from the Ribbon Girl.
The picture above shows the card when the band has been removed.
Inside I have masked Divine Tilda with some balloons from an older collection to create a birthday scene. I have also added pennant flags cut with a Doohickey die.
Tilda and the balloons have been painted with Distress Ink Pads and I have added highlights to her cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.
The punched edges of the card and along the image were cut with a Martha Stewart punch.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia Down Under Challenges. Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations. Thanks for looking! x
Good morning! It is time for our first Magnolia Only Challenge of 2015 over at The Ribbon Girls. Our theme is Seeing Spots. My card is a winter birthday card for a relative who loves to go skiing! I love it when you can use a Christmas stamp at other times, don't you? My spotty paper is by MME and I have distressed the edges and painted them with Picket Fence Crackle Paint.
I have painted the image with Distress Ink pads and added some details with a white gel pen. I also used a silver gel pen for her zip and the ski poles.
All of the flowers, the gorgeous lace and the cheesecloth are from The Ribbon Girl. You can see in this photo that I have covered Tilda's Ski jacket with Glossy Accents to make it look more realistic.
The sentiment is from Magnolia and again the flowers and curly stamen are from The Ribbon Girl.
I used one of the new ticket dies from the Vol 3 Doohickey Club Kit to make the tags. The seam binding and rose are from The Ribbon Girl too.
The gorgeous birch tree and cardinal dies were a gift and are by Impression Obsession.
I hope you like my card and I've inspired you to join us this week at The Ribbon Girls. Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations. Thanks for looking! x
Good morning! Our first challenge of 2015 at Magnolia-licious is 'Love is in the Air' and this is my card for the challenge. I've used several Magnolia stamps to create this little scene:
I have painted the whole scene with Distress Ink pads and added some details with a white gel pen on her eyes, cheeks and the flowers.
I used only the bottom part of the flower stamp as I didn't want them to be too tall. I have then drawn other blades of grass around the stamped image to create a meadow. The gorgeous diamante border was created with trim from The Ribbon Girl.
I love these cute little bird stamps from Magnolia, they can add a sweet touch to lots of different stamped scenes.
Good morning! I have a joke card to share today that I created for my hubby to give a friend. Hubby received a birthday card from said friend which read "You Is Well Old!" lol. It did give us a laugh when he opened it and as his friends birthday is only a few weeks later I decided to return the favour! I have used a Tim Holtz alphabet die and that's it! Super quick and easy and will hopefully gain a laugh when it is received!
Good morning! I have a new card to share using a new stamp too! When I saw this beautiful, serene Santoro stamp at a local store I knew I had to add her to my collection.
I have coloured her with Distress Ink pads and used a white gel pen to fill the little dots on her skirt.
I have used Tim Holtz Butterflight die on the corrugated card behind the image. After cutting I painted the butterflies with Picket Fence crackle paint. The lace, flowers and seam binding are all from The Ribbon Girl.
The large flower was created with the Peony Doohickey die and some stamens from my stash. I have used coffee filter paper to create it.
The sentiment is an old one from Whiff of Joy and the papers I have used are from MME.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! Enjoy your Monday. x
Good morning! I have another male card to share today. As the recipient is a builder I thought it would be fun to use a Prima brick mask. I began with kraft cardstock and swiped an embossing ink pad over the mask. Once I'd removed the mask I sprinkled the brick pattern with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder. It has a rough, sandy texture so is quite realistic for bricks!
For the sentiment I used a Tim Holtz alphabet die.
