Magnolia Down Under - National Flag Colours

Good Morning Eveyone,

I hope you're having a great weekend, time for our next Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week we'd like to see you use the colours of your National Flag to create your card!

This week we are joined by our wonderful sponsor:-

Now the Australian Flag is Blue, Red and White but like many of the team I've chosen a different shade of blue than appears on our flag!

I've used these gorgeous new paper from My Minds Eye, great for Valentines day which is coming up soon! Tilda coloured with copics and I've added some dimensional magic to her balloons to make them shine. There's a little ink distressing and sewing to the edges and all my embellishments have been in my stash for ages!

Be sure to stop by Magnolia Down Under and check out the creations by the rest of the team - they are just gorgeous :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us at Magnolia Down Under this week!

Colour Create - Pink, Green & a Neutral Colour

Hi Everyone,

Time for the next Colour Create Challenge! This week our colours have been chosen by our fabulous DT Suzie, who has chosen Pink, Green and a Neutral colour of your choice with the optional extra being to make your own flowers.

Here's is the pic Suzie has chosen to inspire us with:-

If you stop by Colour Create Challenge you'll notice that this week we are sponsored by the wonderful team at Kenny K who have given us these fabulously sassy images to showcase :) They have also generously donated the prize for this week's challenge!

The image I chose to work with is Club Kid and I've coloured her with copics and added a little spica pen to her lips. My pink pattern paper is from the 6x6 Prima Annalee Paper Pad and the Green is from the 6x6 Basic Grey Wander Paper Pad. I've gone with White as my neutral colour.

I've used this gorgeous pink Websters Ribbon, some more of the cheesecloth I received from my Secret Santa (I'm loving it!), the doily and pearls I've had for ages. All the edges are distressed and sewn and I've added a little Stickles to my oval for a touch of Glam.

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - Buttons, Bows, Bling & Blooms
Stampin for the Weekend - Out with the Old (Doily Ribbon & Pearls)
Basic Grey Challenge - Something New (Cheesecloth)

Hope you are inspired to join the challenge at Colour Create, if you drop by be sure to wish our teamie Mina a Happy Birthday for Friday :) It's also my Mum's Birthday today... Happy Birthday Mum!

Thanks for stopping by,

Magnolia Down Under - Anything Goes

Hi Everyone,

Grrr... late posting again! This week at Magnolia Down Under we have an Anything Goes Challenge! So long as your card features a Magnolia Stamp or Doo Hickey Die of course :)
I've taken the opportunity to be organised and this card will be my Mum's Birthday card for the 19th.

This challenge we have a special limited edition Koala Hugs Tilda from Shopbron as the prize so I hope you'll join the challenge for a chance to win!

 I've chosen to use this gorgeous limited edition Magnolia Stamp from Creashop Duymelot and my Maja Papers were also purchased at the same store. Tilda is coloured with copics, I've used a DooHickey Die for the card border and tag and the flowers, ribbon, pins and lace were all from my stash. The gorgeous cheesecloth and pearls were from my MDUC DT Secret Santa ;)

Thanks for stopping by, hope you'll join us this week!

Colour Create - Sage, Red and Cream

Hi Everyone,

So sorry to be late posting my Colour Create Challenge card! My holidays are coming to an end and it's back to work on Monday for me :(

Our lovely DT Edna has chosen the colours for this challenge and they are Sage, Red and Cream. I actually thought they'd make a great Christmas Card so I used the combination to make one of my last Christmas Cards. Edna's optional extra is buttons.

Here is the pic that Edna chose to inpsire us with:-

I chose to use one of my new Magnolia Stamps that I hadn't used yet this Christmas! I've coloured her with copics and the papers are leftovers from last Christmas!

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pearls, button and ribbon are all from my stash and I've used my oval nestabilities dies too!

I hope you've all had a wonderful holiday season, we've been away camping with friends at the beach and riding the tube behind the Jetski, so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year to you all :)
