A message from across the miles...

Hiya everyone!

Hope we are all well. Crazeeeeeeee weather here in the Pilbara, rain one moment, sun the next, then thunder! So ive been tucked up crafting today.

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

In the Pink challenge blog - Cute
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Bring on the bling
Simply Magnolia- CAS or fully loaded
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia - Lace and pearls
Midweek Magnolias- Sentimental

So for this card I used the gorgeous 'Tilda in evening dress' from the 'Little Moscow Circus' collection. She is sooooooooooo chic!!! I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. The papers I used are from Maja.

I used dies from Magnolia, Go Kreate, and Tim Holtz. The sentiment means a lot to me as I am from England and now live in Australia so 'across the miles' really hits home, esp round birthdays which this card is for. I used lace from Live and Love crafts, ribbon from my stash along with pale purple ribbon. I added some purple rhinestones to around the main image. The flowers which are made from a Magnolia die are sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist.

I hope you like her.

Jungle Adventure with Edwin

Hey there!

How are we all doing? Today I am here with a card for a boy, and wow do i find these hard but got my thinking cap on and got it done!!!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenge-

Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog - Card for a boy

So for this card I used 'Animal keeper Edwin' from the pet/animal collection. I masked 3 stamps from this collection- Edwin, his land cruiser and the African sun background. The whole scene is coloured with Copics and I used soe DI 'Scattered straw' ink to help get the sandy look. The paper is from the fabulous Graphic 45 'Tropical travelogue' and is such a beautiful collection.

The die are from La La Land crafts and are the spooky vines and of course the fab Magnolia. I used ghost leaves and regular leaves from WOC. The ribbon is from my stash. I added some cheese cloth to behind the image. I distressed the image and edged it with DI 'Vintage Photo'.

I also used the Jungle signpost from the Pet/animal collection and fussy cut it out and glued it to the image. I curled two edges of the main image as I wanted a rough and ready kinda look. On the clouds I used a white marker to make them stand out.

On the inside I continued the jungle them with the vine stamp and again the jungle signpost.

I hope you like my card.

Now I picked the gorgeous 'Bugs Caterpillar from our sponsor, which can be found here Bugaboon Stamps. So why not hop across to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT have been doing with these awesome stamps.

So i decided that I was going for the other meaning of puppy love- young love. And my caterpillar is just a baby so I thought she was adorable just sleeping here and I imagined that she was dreaming of her love.

The papers are from the Kaisercraft collection ' Limelight' its such a cool collection, feels all tropical rainforest. I used dies from Magnolia. I coloured my lovely with Copics. I added the alpha letters ''Young, Puppy, Love' to the image.

To finish off I edged my image and the die cuts with DI 'Vintage Photo' and added some green rhinestones to the sign post.

I used dies from Magnolia and La La Land crafts. The flowers are a mix of WOC and Prima. I used a Prima heart paperclip saying 'LOVE' in the middle. I added a doily from Martha Steward behind the image. The heart lace is from my stash and it edges the card.

Well I am here today with my 4th card as GDT for Time for a Magnolia Challenge and this time we are setting the challenge of ' Animals- with or without Edwin/Tilda. Cool eh!

So for my card I used the gorgeous stamp 'Beautiful Star'. Its the first time using this stamp for me. Such a gorgeous stamp. I coloured the image with Copics and decided to do something different; I coloured 'Beautiful Star' with blues and oranges. Bit different for me eh!

The design papers are from First Edition's 'Neroli' collection. This paper is BEAUTIFUL!!! it has 'gem effect' papers in the pad and is so so so bling! Perfect for 'Beautiful star'.

On the card I used a mix of Tim Holtz, Spellbinders and of course, Magnolia dies. I didnt want to overcrowd the card so didnt add flowers as didnt want to hide these beautiful papers. I added some pale blue rhinestones and that is it.

I hope you like my card!
