Star Dreams Birthday Card

 
Dr. Monday MD day!!!  This is a card I made for a special person for their birthday!  I need to work on getting more cards out, but for some reason, I get so behind.  Get distracted too easily these days!!!

Magnolia-licious is the place to find the following:

Have used oval Spellbinder dies and a Cuttlebug embossing folder along with pearls and some twine for accents.  If items are out of stock, please check with Diana for availability.
Here I used the Star Dreams paper and card stock.  I love using it, it embosses and cuts so nice and the pearlized paper is so gorgeous, but, it is difficult to photograph.  It also stamps differently with ink.  It stamped what I will call softly.  I decided to go with it and colored with the Promarkers too.

Barb Hardeman also has some darling projects for an inspiration prescription! Be sure to take a peek!

Please check the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for all the fun things going on there.  Leaving comments on the Design Teams posts gets a chance at winning some nice prizes!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy every day!

Fall Stationery Set

Are you ready for fall and school time?  Well I'm not excited for it to be here already even though I do love the fall.  It just doesn't last long enough before that next season comes!!!  So I hope you are enjoying the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Hop!  If you came from Becky Hetherington's blog I'm sure you saw something awesome.  If you came on your own, I would recommend heading to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get started from the beginning.

I've used some fantastic things from Magnolia-licious:
MINI 244 EDITOR TILDA
MINI 540 SWEDISH CHAIR
MINI 3093 TILDA WITH SPITZ POCKET
MINI 3061 TILDA WITH CHRISTMAS LETTERS
DH 75 PEONIES DIES
DH 9 SUMMER FOLIAGE DIES
DH 82 VINTAGE BOX LACING COFFEE DIE
DH 84 EDWIN'S RECTANGLE LACE DIE
MB 206 LOVELY ASTER DIES
MB 119 DELICATE FERN DIE

The Tilda gals are colored with Distress Inks on Watercolor paper.  I've added some pearls and twine for embellishments.  The Stationery Set was already done in the paper, so it was fun to just add everything to it.

Here is a Supply Box which has some compartments in it.  I kept all the decoration on top, so it would still fit in the stand.

 And this is a Pencil Box:
I am such a die addict along with so many other things, and Diana has such a great selection of dies amongst all the wonderful Magnolia stamps at Magnolia-licious.    Be sure to check out the new ones and the great prices along with her rewards for shopping at her store!

Hope you are getting lots of inspiration from the hop, that's all from me for now!  Please head to Katie Tate's blog for one of her terrific creations!

Thanks for stopping by!  I always appreciate your taking time to leave a comment and remember if you leave comments with the design team members you will be eligible for a surprise drawing from Diana at Magnolia-licious!!!  Enjoy every day!

Happy Day Tilda Pocket

Wanted to use some of the great dies from the 1st Doohickey Die Club.  Check and see if Diana has any of the 1st Club set left.  Also, I would suggest to order the 2nd Club set of Christmas theme before they are gone.  There are only a limited amount and cannot be re-ordered.  Click HERE.

I used the MINI 231 TILDA AS A STAR, but of course, any of the sitters will do!!!  Thought the pocket was a fun thing to be able to tuck things in and the seaweed die makes wonderful wavy leaves in an arrangement.  The border die I used for the top and bottom was actually a wave die, but I used the leftover piece of it that made a really nice scallop.  Stars work nicely for flowers!!!
These were the dies I used and there were many more in the 1st Club kit.

Check out Barb's Stampelicious blog to see the cute card she created with a screen door!

Please stop by the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and catch the details for the latest Challenge and get inspiration from the gals on the Design Team.  You'll find so many fun items at Magnolia-licious and there are always new things coming in too!

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments, they are greatly appreciated!!!  Thank you for stopping by and Enjoy Every Day!!!

Corner Flip Card With Tilda


Saw a card with a similar design and thought it would be perfect to showcase a Mini Tilda!  Another project for Dr. Monday MD (minis and dies).  Of course, I always love trying out different dies.

Find these and other magnificent things at Magnolia-licious:
MINI 377 VIOLET TILDA
MB 54 PRIMULA BLOOMS DIES
DH 19 MINI ZIG ZAG AND SCALLOP DIES
See it is just the corner that flips up.  I did a partial cut with a Spellbinders die, then cut to the fold with a scissors.  The background papers ere from an old My Mind's Eye pad.  Didn't see till too late, but could have sanded the edges of the flowers, so they stood out from the paper a little more.  I can see this Primula Blooms die is going to have lots of uses....a nice variety of small flowers. 
Another sweetie mini colored with Promarkers!!!  So quick and easy to color and add to a card!

Be sure to stop by Barb Hardeman's blog Stampelious to see her creative ideas!  She has been the master of boxes lately and they are all so cute!!!  This week she has an adorable card.  And also check the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see what is going on there.  We would love to have you join in on the challenges.  Diana always has such generous prizes and the gals on the design team have such awesome inspirational ideas!  So join in and show us some of your stuff!!!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy every day!!!

Summer Flower Tilda with Botanic Frame

Love this new frame set!  So many different uses and variations can be made with it.  Of course I had to make it 3D, but it would be really nice even flat or for a monochromatic card.  Will have to try that too!  Dr. Monday MD is over at the Magnolia-licious™ Challenge Blog today.  Be sure to check out what Barb Hardeman has done too!  So here is my Mini and Dies card!

Find these at the wonderful Magnolia-licious™:
MINI 265 SUMMER FLOWER TILDA/MINI 3032 WATERCAN TILDA
MB 255 BOTANIC FRAME SET
MB #255 Botanic Frame Set 98539
The frame has a background piece, the viney and floral part plus a separate flower die and another leafy die that you could stamp a small sentiment in.  I cut off the leafy edges and used them for filler around the frame.  What a fun set and I love the size of the flowers too!  The frame is the perfect size for the minis too!  I started out with a base of dark green then ran the frame through with a lighter green, white and a piece of aqua to get to get the pieces to pop up.

Mini Summer Flower Tilda is paired with Watercan Tilda also a cutie!  She is colored with Promarkers and I've used a Darice embossing folder, spellbinder die and a no name butterfly punch.

Thanks so much for checking in and thank you for all the kind comments!!!  Enjoy every day!!!

Tilda Longstocking Friend Card

Dr. Monday MD day and I had some papers left on my table from the last project and figured why not use them!  Pippi Longstocking was one of my favorite stories as a kid, so loved when Tilda became a Longstocking too!!!

Find the following at the Magnolia-licious Store:
MINI 228 TILDA LONGSTOCKING
DH 75 PEONIES DIE
DH 9 SUMMER FOLIAGE DIE
DH 73 JOLLY TAGS DIE
IO 55 LEAFY BRANCH DIE
PS 837 DELICATE CHAIN DIE
Instead of actually using the Delicate Chain Diecut, I used the leftover edge.  Makes a nice little border that I used on the top of the little banners and the bottom of the Jolly Tag. Tilda Longstocking is colored with Promarkers.  Along with the above dies I did use Spellbinders ovals and a friends die.  Added some Antique Linen Distress Ink to age and some pearls.

If you haven't checked out the new website redo at Magnolia-licious™, please do!  So nice to see the great layout and everything is so fresh and new!

Thanks for peeking in!  Always appreciate your comments!  Enjoy every day!!!

Magnolia Notes

I made a nice tablet holder at Crafters Haven in Minneapolis the other day.  For my Dr. Monday MD (Minis and Dies) project, I took it home and added some more things to it.  Had to make it 3D of course!!!  Loved the Graphics 45 paper and thought the minis would work well on the postcard type paper.

You can find the Minis and Dies at Diana's great Magnolia-licious online store:
MINI A21 TILDA WITH LACE PANTS
DH 44 SWIRLY LACE DIE
DH 84 EDWINS RECTANGLE LACE DIE
DH 93 SWIRL DIE
PS 807 GENTLE LEAF DIE
MB 203 NORRLAND FLOWER DIES
Did a little aging on the papers with distress ink.  Tilda is colored with Promarkers.  Also some pearls added.  Didn't get a chance to jazz up the inside, it was very plain, so didn't photograph it.  The tablet size is 6" x 9" and just glued onto the inside back cover.  The cover is made from chipboard covered with the Graphic 45 paper.

Now Barb Hardeman has been busy creating more fabulous treasures!  Stop by her blog Stampelicious to see the adorable note cards and box she made showcasing the minis!

If you are looking for some more inspiration, be sure to check out the design team cards and projects at the Magnolia-licious Card Gallery.  Link is HERE.  You will see lots of great ideas using both past and present Magnolia stamps and others.

Thanks so much for stopping  by and I appreciate your comments!  Enjoy every day!
