Magnolia Down Under Challenge #61

Good Morning, Magnolia Lovers!!!

Today is Sunday and that means a brand new Challenge for you to play along with at Magnolia Down Under!!  This week we have a recipe challenge for you, how fun!! so this is what we would like to see on your card:

3 Papers, 2 Buttons and 1 Ribbon

So you can have more than the required if you want, so like more buttons for instance but as long as it has a least 2 then your on a winner!!!

So this week I have made a card for my friend, Tina, who recently had a baby girl.... oh so sweet!!  Her name is Lucy:-) here is my card:

My image is an old one I think, Miss Blondie stamped it off for me - Thanks Hun, when I was searching for a Magnolia Baby to put on my baby card for Tina. Anyway - I think it looks pretty cute!!  I've also used my new Tim Holtz Die that Debbie gave me for my Birthday, although you can't quite see in the pic' because my papers are a little bit too similar, but it looks great in real life!!!

I've popped Crystal Effects on the bubbles to make them stand out a bit more and look a bit more like a bubble!!  I also sprinkled a bit of glitter on them to make them shine too!!

Anyway thanks for looking and I'll see you soon:-)

Paper: Stampin' Up Pink Card Stock, Papermania 6x6 Paper Stack - Sheep/Stripes/Flowers

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #60

Good Morning Magnolia Fans!!  Well this is a bit different for me, playing along with the other side of the Design Team, but they had such a fabby and Crazy Challenge that I just had to join in!!

So this week at Magnolia Down Under its a Colour Challenge:


WOW, what a combination huh???  Its actually rather easy when you think about it, because you would most likely use those colours in your colouring of Tilda or Edwin anyway and the rest is up to you on how much of each colour you actually use!!

So My Orange in in Tilda's Shirt and my Orange Rose, Pink is on Tilda's Wings and my Paper, Green is for my Leaves!!, Blue is on Tilda's Jeans and on my message spot tag, Brown is in Tilda's Hair, her bag and I used Brown Card stock as a base for my pretty pink paper!!

Ok so its the first time I've made a circle easel card, and gosh they are fun! But I did manage to some how muck it up a bit and it looks a little off center??  I must have folded my base card a bit crooked??  I dunno but I'm still really really happy with it!! 

I've also decided to squeeze my card into lots of challenges, because well that's fun  too!!  So I've used the Sketch over at Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge, Totally Tilda wants Stitching - which is around the outside of my pink paper and on my base image piece!!, Bizzy Bec Creatalious Challenges is after Vintage - I think I covered that!! and also Bizzy Bec's August Challenge is Anything Goes!! and The Pink Elephant have a receipe challenge of Ribbon and Sparkles...... So I fit for that one too!! I was going to go for Lollypop Ladies Brand new challenge - Banana Split with Sprinkles but I was a little bit too late for that one.... oh well!!

and here is my card:

Here is a close up of my Shopping Tilda!!  Isn't she cute... so cute??  Kylie K (Blonde) sent her to me and oh my I love her to bits!!  I've used a bit of Gold Glimmer Mist on my flowers and on my base for Tilda - so pretty in real life.  I've also used a tonne of Kindy Glitz on Tilda's wings!!! 

Ok so this one is of the message spot, its the Recipe Card from a little yummy for your tummy collection!!  and I coloured my Tag Blue, and smothered it with Crystal Effects to make it stand out a bit more!!

Thanks for dropping by and checking out my card!!

Paper: Kraft, Choc, Very Vanilla Card stock and Prima Papers
Embellishments: roses, leaves, bling buckle, velvet ribbon, lace, Kindy Glitz, Crystal Effects, Pink Ribbon, Button, Gold Glimmer Mist and Machine Stitching

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #59

Hi Everyone

Its time for a new Fabulous Challenge at Magnolia Down Under and this week we want to see:

Edwin & Tilda on the same card!!!

Awwwww so sweet!!  So for this Challenge I used my cute Wedding Stamp of Tilda and Edwin, I love this stamp I think its so sweet, and I've also masked in the Wedding Background Stamp too:-) I wanted my card to be elegant so I have used Linen/White colours.  Here is my card, Hope you like it!!

You can see I've really gone to town with my Magnolia DooHickey's, they are so fabby and I think I used them all on this card!! There is the flower, the Lace, the Swirl and the Leaves and the Tag, here is another pic with the Tag so you can see!!

The Stamp says "Happiness Be Yours"  I won this stamp from Bizzy Bec - Cool Huh? So I'm still loving the inked edges around the image with the swirly stamp (which I stamped off - this time so it didn't come out as dark) and then of course I used heaps of Kindy Glitz - Glitter Glue around the edges.  Its looks really sparkly and pretty IRL, but of course I can't get the same effect on the Camera.....  Anyway thanks for dropping by and checking out my card!!

Paper: Stamping Up Very Vanilla, Magnolia Designer Papers
Embellishments: Magnolia DooHickey's - Lace, Flowers, Swirl, Leaf, and Tag available from Tickled Pink Stamps. Kindy Glitz, Kraft Ribbon, Vivaldi Bling Flower Center (Spotlight in wedding section)
