Magnolia Wedding Card

Hi Everyone,

This is a card my SIL asked me to make for a wedding she has to attend in October. I've used an Ivory Bazzill Base Card along with Stampin Up Blush Blossom and a Pattern Paper by Mellissa Frances. All of the panels have been stitched on the sewing machine and some have been popped up on foam dots.

I have coloured my image with copic pens and used the clear spica pen over Tilda's Veil and the tinted part of her dress. I added stickles to some of the flowers and the bottom of Tilda's Dress and Headband. Some of the flowers already came covered with sparkles.

As you can see in the pic above a charm, pin, ribbon, flowers and pearls complete the card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-

Papertake Weekly - One - One image, One Ribbon, One Pin, One Charm and One Pattern Paper
Wild Orchid - Make it Sparkle
The Shabby Tea Room - Old Meets New - Old Pattern Paper and Image with New Flowers and Border Punch

Colour Create Pastel Challenge

Welcome to another Colour Create Challenge! Our Challenge this fortnight is to use some beautiful pastel shades Lemon, Lilac and Mint - with the optional extra being a doily. This challenge was set by our extremely talented DT Dena who has chosen the most gorgeous picture to inspire you.

Isn't this the most devine Baby Nursery!

Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe who are currently having a Huge Summer Sale so make sure you stop by and check out the bargains!

Now IRL I was just soooo pleased with the card as these pastel colours look great together! However when it came time for me to photograph the card the colours aren't true to life at all!

My base card is a very soft mint and I've used this same colour for the petal nestabilities shape. The smaller square is lemon but in the pic they all look the same :(  and my Lilac looks greyish too! But enough complaining! I've dyed my white ribbon with Barely Banana Ink to be a pale lemon shade, added lemon pearls and the flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid and Spotlight blooms. My sewing is actually in a pale green cotton too.

I'm going to enter my card in the following challenges

Happy 18th Birthday Jess

This is the gift set that I made for my friend Sharon's daughter Jess who has just turned 18. Gosh it just seems like yesterday that she was a little girl - time goes soooo fast. I've already given Jess her card and present so it's now safe to post. I really hope you enjoyed your Birthday Jess!

Jess's favourite colour is lime green so I've based the set around that colour.

This little box in a bag held a lime green and silver Pandora charm. (keeping with the theme!)

The base card is white with a layer of aqua and the lime green print is by Provo. My pattern paper is by Scenic Route "Lyndon" (I used the reverse side). The flowers are from Wild Orchid and all the other embellishments are from my stash. The "18" was cut out using the Cricut and stickles added to the numbers. I've added stickles to the spots on the Hippo and on the butterfly too.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-

The Pink Elephant - Ribbon and Sparkles
Creative Card Crew - Sparkle and Shine

Tilda - Easel Card

Good Morning All,

This card just sort of happened last night, I wasn't planning on making it but thought I'd get some things together to make it this morning. However I just seemed to get on a roll and this is the result. I just wish all my card come together so easily.

My round easel card has a white base and a layer of blue bazzill along with some pattern paper from Papermania. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid and the Bling Flourish is from Tickled Pink Stamps. The image is fast being coming a favourite and I purchased her a Bizzy Becs. The lace was some I had sitting in my stash.

Tilda was coloured with copics and I've added some Clear Spica Pen to her Dress Trim and the Ribbon in her Hair. Just a slight dab of Pink Spica Pen has been added to the centre of the flowers.

The sentiment is by Stamp It and is called "Wishing you Happiness".

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:-

Creative Card Crew - Let's get Cute and Girlie
Craftalicious Challenges - Pearls and Swirls
Wild Orchid Challenge - One for the Girls
Saturday Secret Crafter Challenge - What are Little Girls made of

Colour Create Tilda with Book

Hi Everyone and welcome to another Colour Create Challenge!

This challenge the colours have been chosen by our teamie Julie and are Ivory, Duck Egg Blue and one other colour from this gorgeous inspirational picture below. (The optional extra is Shabby Chic.)

I just loved this picture and knew it would be perfect for my Tilda with Book image from Magnolia.  Our generous sponsor this week is Michelle from Michelle's Scrapbooking who has a lovely range of Magnolias in store.

I've chosen to colour Tilda in Copics and I've added some Dimensional Magic to her glasses for that realistic effect. I managed to get a reflection in the photo just like real glasses - pure luck!!!

I had this mixture of flowers in my stash and thought I'd try and replicate the bunch of flowers from the inspiration picture.

The Magnolia Book Stamp is placed on very thin foam dots and Tilda has been placed just in front of them on thicker foam dots.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - Something Old (Magnolia Stamps), Something New (the Paper just purchased it), Something Borrowed (the Butterfly Punch) and Something Blue (Ribbon)

Tilda Happy Birthday

This is the first chance I've had to use this lovely Tilda. I wanted to make a very feminine card so thought she would be perfect. This card was inspired by a beautiful card made by the extremely talented Camilla, I have used the same layout and you can see her original card here.

Tilda has been coloured with copic markers and I've added some Stickles over her Hair Band and the Trim on her Dress. Yellow isn't a colour I use a lot of but I really wanted to use this pretty Magnolia Paper and I've also used the Stamp Something Picture for inspiration - Yellow Background and Flowers. I have placed her on an embossed background gently inked with Barely Banana Ink.

All the panels have been stitched in yellow cotton and the finishing touches are pearls, the pin, ribbon, MS Lace border punch, inked doily and all those gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-

Wild Orchid Challenge - One for the Girls
Bizzy Becs - August Challenge "Anything Goes"
Stamp Something - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Thanks for stopping by - I'll be back tomorrow with my DT Card for Colour Create.

Tilda Birthday Card

This card was made using the Bev's sketch from this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge. I have used foam dots to give the layers extra lift and IRL it is very 3D.
The papers I've used are Magnolia along with SU cardstock and I've made matching flowers in the same cardstock. (my first attempt).

Tilda has been coloured using copics and spica pens. I've used a clear spica pen on the trim of her dress and the ribbon is her hair and red and gold spica pens on the flowers.

This side view shows the 3D effect of the layers with foam pop dots in between.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-

Craftalicious Challenges - Handmade Flowers
Just Magnolia Challenge - Sketch by Bev

Magnolia Wedding

I made this wedding card for a work colleague of my Husband. Nicole is going to be bridesmaid in a couple of weeks and wanted a special card. The bridesmaids dresses will be burgundy and the girls are wearing silver and pearls.

Tilda and Edwin are coloured with copics and Tilda's gown also has a layer of clear spica pen. I've also added a touch of red spica pen to the roses in Tilda's hand and hair.

If you have a really close look you can see the cream panel has been embossed with small hearts using the cuttlebug. The border punch is MS, the charm I found at Lindcraft and the flowers are from Wild Orchid.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:-

Allsorts Challenge - Dressing Up
Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge - Use Edwin on a Card
Wild Orchid Challenge - Lovely Lace (lace border punch and lace doily)

Happy Birthday Rozie

Hi Everyone,

This is a card I made for my friend Roz who recently had a Birthday! Rozie is an works with Lingerie so I thought it would be the perfect image (Penny Black) for her :)   My pink and black pattern print is by 7 Gypsies and the embossed spotted paper I made myself using the Cuttlebug and then spraying with Smooch Spray.

I'm a little disappointed with the photos as my image has been cut out and placed on the embossed paper and the cups of the bra and pegs have been restamped and popped up on foam dots for a 3D effect that you can't really see :(

The image was coloured with copics and spica pens.

I will enter my card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - We are all going Dotty and also Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge - Show some 3D.

Thanks for stopping by,
