new chapter begins

Hi all

Hows our week going? its been a lovely week here and although it keeps forecasting rain so far nothing. Not complaining though as I love being outside as much as possible.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge- Punches and /or dies
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Lots of Layers
All about Magnolia Challenge blog- All about anything goes
Magnolia Forever - Things with wings

Now...this card was made for a very special couple who I have known forever, esp the lady who I have had the pleasure of being friends with since we were 4. And they finally got their wish and were granted with the most beautiful little boy this year. Heart bursts for them as they are simply fabulous. So of course had to make a card...and I love this image its perfect for a new arrival.

I coloured Mr. Stork with Distress inks. The papers....ahhh arnt they fab are from Maja Design Bundle of Joy. They are beautiful papers as always but the little teddy bears and elephants are just simply perfect.

The dies...are a mix of Go Kreate for the shape of the card. The rest are from the Magnolia Doo Hickey kit and isnt the smiling star lovely and from regular Magnolia dies too.

I added a pearl trim to the card which is from Noor! Design UK. The baby zipper charm (which i had to change to a star as it wouldnt have survived the post back to England) is from my stash and I think from Prima and the hat pin is from Noor! Design also.

I added some Nuvu jewel drops and some flat back rhinestones to finish off.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Endless summer...

Hiya everyone!

wowzers what a weather week it has been there. Tuesday it absolutely poured down with rain. Really heavy and grey skies all day. Then Wednesday arrives and since then its been stunning. So much so that I have been sat in garden reading. Its beautiful. So this is why I ended up doing a summer card as its really is like and Endless Summer as although we are in winter it is stunning.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

All about Magnolia Challenge blog- All about anything goes
Magnolia-licious challenge blog- Anything goes with the option of masking
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes
Midweek Magnolias Challenge blog- Anything goes
Paradise of Magnolia challenge blog

So for this card I went all out with the dies and the colours!

I used Hawaiian Tilda from the stamp and cutz release. I love the palm tree that went with her and that features four times on here so shows you how much I do like it lol. I cracked open the Prisa colour pencils for this one and got to it. I keep practicing with them!

The papers are from Blue Fern Studio 'seaside cottage' and I love this as everyone knows I love the sea and the beach!

The dies! Well the card shape is from Go Kreate. I used dies from Magnolia for the majority of the card. The bikini is from Joy Crafts which can be found at Noor! Design UK. The little sand dollar found next to the sentiment is from Spellbinders and the sentiment is from a La La Land crafts stamp.

I used some metallic blue watercolour paints for the background. On Tilda's flowers I added some Nuvo drops to the centres and also on her bracelet. The coconut are sparklets from Kaisercraft. Of course there had to be a charm and I added a little flamingo.

Hope you have a great weekend

Indian Tilda

Morning all!

Hope we are all well. Its bank hol here in Western Australia for WA Day. Its supposed to be winter here but the weather is just gorgeous. Its so beautiful and the mornings and nights are fresh. Beautiful time of year.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Midweek Magnolias - Dies or chippies
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- bingo- shaped card /pearls/ die cuts
Marvelous Magnolia challenge blog- Anything goes

For this card I decided that I would get the Prismacolour penicls out again. Im just starting with them and slowly getting there. They are rather different to my Distress Inks thats for sure! Learning volour combos etc its a learning curve!

I used Indian Tilda from a release a couple of year back. She is adorable and I love the pose and her outfit. The papers are from Kaisercrafts old collection 'Paradiso' . I wanted to use different colours than I normally use so this collection was perfect for that. Plus they have gorgeous metallic elements to the papers which i loved for this.

The shape of the card is from Go Kreate. The die cut that Tilda is stamped on is from Little Darlings. The rest of the days are Magnolia bar the beautiful lace die which is under Tilda and that is from Fantasy dies which can be found at Noor! Design UK. These are new dies to me and I am loving them.

The sentiment is from a La La Land Crafts.

The little wood chippie is a campfire and is from Scrapiniec and these are also found at Noor!Design. I added a little orange rhinestone to the middle of the campfire.

Around Tilda I used some of the Magnolia Feather stamps and these are stamped in Distress Ink Pumice Stone, bit of a light grey colour so they are in the background. I love this feather stamp. I added some Nuvo jewel drops in cream to Tilda's necklace.

Now the gold colour around her is from a metallic watercolour paint that I have just started playing with and so far I am impressed. I feel they might be getting used a lot!!!

Hope you have a good week.
