Happily Ever After

Happy Saturday!! I just love the new fairy tale collection! I can not wait until the rest of the images are released! Want to check them out?? Click here
you can pre-0rder from Diana and she will ship them to you as soon as they are released! I can't wait to get my pre-order! Thanks Diana!!
Tilda looks so are darn sweet sitting in this window. Dreaming of all of kinds of things.

I certainly hope all her dreams comes true. I hope all your dreams come true too!! I've entered this card into Just Magnolia "anything goes" challenge.
The tree and castle are hand drawn. I used my hot glue gun for the path and colored it with copics afterward. The sentiment on the front is computer generated and the inside sentiment is cut from my cricut Storybook cartridge. DP is from American Craft.

I used pop dots to pop up the castle and Edwin and Tilda are popped out using acetate.
Thanks for coming by!!

Happy Birthday

You can never have enough birthday cards. I made this one with Tilda with flowing hair. I just love her little basket of flowers.

The ground Tilda is standing on is hand drawn as well as the clouds in the background. They are very light so it's kind of hard to see them, but I didn't want them to be overwhelming. I colored the leaf pearls and roses with copics to match my dp.


A Spoon Full of Sugar

Have a great day!

Flight of the Fairy

Nice to see you again. My spring kit has finally arrived! I could not wait to tear into it and start inking those babies up! Here is my first creation with Midsummers Night Tilda, you can pre-order her along with her accessories here at Magnolia-Licious. The sketch is from the Just Magnolia for their one year blogiverssary.

It was so much fun creating this scene. I masked Tilda and added the flowers and grass with butterflies. I drew the tree by hand and placed it behind Tilda, the trunk is drawn directly behind Tilda's legs and then her and the grass is popped up and the rest of the tree is behind that. It's a little hard to see, but in person it pops right out.

I finished the inside with the cutest fairy Tilda you ever did see. She just went flying by my card and I caught her just in time to adhere her.

DP: Heide Grace designs, CS CTMH, K&Company wedding dots,

ribbon was purchased by the yard, lots of little sparkles and the flowers are prima and bulk from Hobby Lobby, I used Diamond Stickles to accent.

Here are the copics that I used to color with:
Thanks for stoppiny by, hope you have time to create something whimsical this weekend.

Wedding Bells Are Ringing...

Thanks for popping by! It's that time of year...the wedding season is soon coming!!

My niece, Michelle, is getting married in August and I couldn't be more happy for her and Micah! I'm getting a head start on her by making her this card. I found the DP at Archivers and immediately had to come home and start working on it.

It's a little hard to see all the shimmer and shine. I have a funny story about my feathers. I have been looking everywhere, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc. for small white feathers and I haven't found any, there was only large ones that were way too big for cards. So I finally gave up and then I had an idea!! I raided my feather pillow for feathers!! Now I have all that I need and I still have a nice fluffy pillow! So, the moral of my story...look for the unexpected and you will find your answer!

Now for the nitty gritty...

Challenges: The Pixie Cottage

Design Papers: The Paper Company, Doodlebug Designs and K&Company (Wedding Dots Glitter Paper), CTMH

Tools: EK Success border punch, Martha Stewart butterfly punch

Embellishments: Prima flowers, Mr & Mrs. heart - Hobby Lobby, crystal spray - Hobby Lobby

Thinking of you....

Thinking of you today...and thought I'd share this card with you. We are finally getting some spring like weather!

Challenges: Magnolia-licious Highlites and Stamptacular Sunday Challenge I colored Sweetheart Tilda with copics, colors are shown below.

This card opens up twice. You can flip tilda up and then it also opens like a regular card.
I went a little overboard with the distressing, but I really like the way it turned out. First a distressed the edges with my CTMH distresser, then I inked the edges with CTMH desert sand ink. Finally a sanded the heck out of it!!

Thanks for dropping by. Hope you have a glorious day!!

Mother's Day Card

Good to see you again. I'm trying to get a head start by making some Mother's Day cards early. Hopefully I'll actually get them in the mail early too!!

Challenge: The Pixie Cottage

Sentiment is from CTMH, I purchased Jam Tilda from
Magnolia-licious, Martha Stewart punch and flowers (inside), outside flowers are Prima.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hanglar Mother's Day Card

I just love these stamps, the only bummer is that you can't get them outside of Sweden, Finland or Norway. These images were pre-stamped and I colored them in. I don't own the stamp, but would love to! wink, wink!

This is my first try at a Joy Fold card, and I have to say that I loved doing it!! I distressed the darker blue paper by embossing it, sanding it and gently rubbing "desert sand" ink from CTMH over it. I am very pleased with the way it turned out.

I cut the journal box and flowers with my cricut, the journal box is from Storybook and the flowers are from George. I added blue gems to the middle to make them pop. Sentiment is from CTMH.

Presenting her majesty..Princess Tilda

Thanks for dropping by!! Hope you enjoy today's project, I had lots of fun creating this one!
Yesterday I went to Michaels and I found these adorable wooden words already painted for just $1, yup, just $1! So I thought to myself....self..what this needs is a Tilda!! So I jazzed up the word Princess and this is how it turned out. I got some other words too, like Friend and Dream...I can't wait to alter them also!

Recipe Card

Thanks for stopping by today. Today I'm showing you a recipe card that I made for the upcoming recipe card swap at Magnolia Measuring Cup Blog. To tell you the truth I really had no idea where to begin. I knew that I wanted red to be part of it, then I just started layers colors. Usually I color Tilda first then find papers to match, this time I did the exact opposite! I came up with the design first then I colored Tilda Last.

Challenges: Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge #9

I used CTMH DP and CS, Prima roses. The fabric flower ribbon is from JoAnns. The apron charm and sparkly pearl picks are from Michaels. Pearl half rounds are from SU. I watercolored the tulips on the recipe and Tilda's dress, the rest is done with copics. I attached a piece of acetate to the front of the recipe card to protect the recipe when it is being used.

Have a great day! I'm glad you stopped by....see you soon.
