What are little boys made of?


It's time for another Magnolia Down Under challenge. This fortnights theme is: Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails..... in other words - One for the Boys!!

So this was an actual challenge for me, because I just don't make boy cards!! I do have a few Edwin stamps in my collection, but basically they are just collected and not used LOL..... But this time I have used Edwin from the Little Moscow Circus - Black Knight Edwin. 

As of late my colouring is not the best, but I guess I pass....

I have used flowers.... yep who said you cant use flowers on a boy card???? besides I think they suit rather well! I have also a Peacock feather, and a tree charm.  My Dies are Spellbinders for my image and the tree, fence and tag are all Doo Hickey's. The fence being the newest from the last Doo Hickey club 3. My papers are My Minds Eye - Oliver. The paper is pretty old I think.

So there you go, hope you will come along and play.

Valentines with No Red???

Say What?

How can you make a Valentines day card without any red on it? Well actually its rather easy!!! And fun. Think how much worse it could have been if the theme was: Valentines with no red or PINK EEECK!!!

Yep our theme at Magnolia Down Under this fortnight is - Valentines with a Twist, no red allowed! 

Anyway for this fun type of valentines I used an old Tilda from the Butterfly collection. I masked the heart in from the last Christmas collection, although I think the idea was better in my head than how it actually came out... but anyway it was still pretty good.... I then used the cute spiral edge die from MFT and of course sprinkled the crap out of it with Frantage!

My cute little LOVE stamp is from Whimsy Stamps. and I also used a Kaiser Craft one which is under the love stamp and beside Tilda's head.

My papers are Prima and my flowers are from i am roses.com My wood butterfly is also Prima. My hear Chippy is from collections and I just painted it with crackle texture paint from Finnabair.

My dies, are the newest Doo hickeys from the last doo hickey die club, and the chicken wire is from MFT. I cut the bird Doo hickey tag apart, so that I could just use the birds at the top of my card, and I stuck the frilly edge of the tag part of the die just under Tilda's feet!

So there you go.... I hope we get to see your gorgeous creations for Valentines - but remember, no red allowed on your card!!
