Some exciting news!!! Diana is offering an extra special called the Mini Stamp Club. Wonderful deal for those wanting to try the minis or add to your collection!!! Please click HERE to check out the details for this fantastic deal!!!
Like I mentioned this Birthday Day cuts out beautifully. I find the printed paper is a little thin, so adhere two layers together and then cut out the die for a little more dimension. There are three shapes in the Tea Label Shape Dies for a nice variety! Found the leaves from the strawberry die is a nice size for some of the flowers too!
Appreciate your comments and thank you for stopping by!
Enjoy the day!!!

This preprinted button that came with these papers was the start for this card. This Gucci Tilda is on her way to do shopping with her little purse to go along with the phrase Delight in the Day! So what better way for my project for Dr. Monday MD (minis and dies) to do a little shopping!!!
Magnolia-licious is my favorite online store which offers such a variety of wonderful stamps and dies with great prices and specials!!! Plus you'll find top notch customer service from the nicest people!!!
Here is what I used on this project from Magnolia-licious:
Took the Romantic Tag die and traced and cut out to get the layer behind the tag. Just the right size! Used the smallest of the Phlox petals along with the center and the leaves. Love this set too! Placed some of the hearts that fall out of the border and tag for embellishments on the card. Tilda is colored with Promarkers.
Thank you for stopping by and remember if you would like to leave a comment, your name will be in a drawing for a generous surprise from Diana at Magnolia-licious! Find all the details at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
Enjoy every day!

I hope you are following along with the Magnolia-licious Design Team Spring/Easter Hop for some springtime inspiration. If you came from Norma's From My Craft Room, you are hopping along the right path. Wasn't her project fabulous???!!! LOVE her work! If you came on your own, you won't want to miss anybody, so go to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to find all the information.
For my project I've recreated a cross from a long time ago using lots of great dies from Magnolia-licious:
MINI 3078 TILDA WITH HER RABBIT
MINI 410 VINTAGE SWEDISH BACKGROUND
DH 8 DOILY FLOWERS DIES
DH 71 SPRAWLING FERN DIES
DH 61 STRAWBERRY DIE
MB 05 SMALL DEBUTANTE FRAME DIE
MB 122 SMALL ALDER TREE DIE
MB 203 NORRLAND FLOWER DIE
MB 206 LOVELY ASTER DIE
The dies have so much versatility. Can you figure out where I used the strawberry die?
So have you guessed where I used the strawberry die yet? It is the lily flowers and leaves! You can see below how I've trimmed the petals. For the leaves, just trace on green paper and cut out. I drew lines on the green piece to show how to cut the leaves from this. The yellow centers are just a 1" square cut with narrow strips almost to the edge and then coiled.
With all the die cutting I do, the eBosser has been such a fabulous tool. Love the fact that I can emboss and cut things on the larger format and really didn't think I needed the electronic part, but found that is soooo nice to have!!! You can check out the eBosser and accessories HERE! Also love that you can do a full sheet of card stock in the A4 embossing folders. I used the Teresa Collins Beautiful Brocade embossing folder on the top layer. This folder came with my machine.
Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a Happy Easter and Spring!!! Be sure to hop along to Katie Tate's Both Sides of the Paper blog! She is so creative has the cutest basket with a tutorial for you too!!!
Enjoy every day!

Of course I gathered some of the wonderful dies and a mini Tilda from Diana's Magnolia-licious online store:
MINI WW 10 NEW YEAR TILDA
DH 64 WAVE LACE BORDER DIE
DH 4 LEAF AND SWIRL DIES
DH 34 WILD STRAWBERRY AND FLOWERS DIES
DH 71 POINSETTIA DIES
MB 89 LARGE CIRCLE BURST DIE
MB 82 PRECIOUS HEARTS DIE
Daisy and also a Butterfly hanging from the bow. Such cute accent pieces!!! You get two sizes in each set.
The card is made with a layer of Vellum on top and I've used the Large Circle Burst die for that opening. Love the look!!! The next layer I embossed with a Crafts-Too Leaves embossing folder, but any embossing designs would work great! The last layer I used the Bee Paper that I like to use for coloring with the alcohol markers. Top Layer is 4 1/4" x 6 1/2", Middle Layer is 4 1/4" x 7 1/2" and the Back Layer is 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" If you want this to fit in a Business Size Envelope, use 4" rather than 4 1/4".
The side edges are held together with a string tie/bow or a ribbon can be used. One side will not be tied when it is put into an envelope so it will lie flat. The ends are lined up together and holes are punched for the ties.
Be sure to check out the specials Diana has at Magnolia-licious. Always a great deal and lots of fun things! And see what is going on at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for you to join in on.
Enjoy every day!
