Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - Anything Goes

Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Magnolia-licious and our theme is 'Anything Goes'.
I have painted Made With Love Tilda using Distress Inks and the no line technique.  I've also used a white gel pen for the dots on her cheeks and eyes.
 I have used the cake Doohickey from one of the Doohickey Kits and used cardstock to match the chocolate cake in the image.
 The gorgeous lace, daisy and stamens are from The Ribbon Girl and the heart die cut is from the Recipe Card collection but I have cut the hanging loop off. 
 I have used a Sizzix die for the frame around Tilda and a Memory Box die for the leaf swirl.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  As always, Shawn is sponsoring the challenge with a fabulous prize from the Magnolia-licious store for the lucky winner.  Have you seen he also has free international shipping on orders over $75 now too?

Thanks for looking! x

I have painted Picnic Tilda from the Recipe Card collection with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I love this Tilda so much, she looks so chilled out! 
I've also painted her picnic basket using the same technique and medium.
The flowers, lace, button and button twine are from The Ribbon Girl. 
The gorgeous daisy flower is also from The Ribbon Girl. 
I have used a Memory Box die around the edges of the card which was cut with a Go Kreate die.

Midweek Magnolias Challenge DT - Challenge #157 Midway Reminder

Good morning!  Today I have a card to share as a reminder of our current challenge over on the Midweek Magnolia Challenge blog.  Our theme is 'Show Some Love' (use a heart).
 I have painted the gorgeous Lovely Rose Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.
I have used the Heart Tag Doohickey die and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink before adding white paint.  The gorgeous lace and diamante heart charm are from The Ribbon Girl.
 The flowers, cheesecloth and silver mesh ribbon are also from The Ribbon Girl.
 I have used a Magnolia Post Mark stamp around the edges of the card and the image mat.
 The ribbon has been recycled from a gift box.

Ribbon Girl DT - February Card Challenge

 Good morning!  February already, I can hardly believe it!  That means, of course, that it is time for our 'Anything Goes' card challenge at The Ribbon Girl.  I have used papers from Craft & You's Rose Garden paper pad.
 The sweet shabby white wooden heart and all of the embellishments are from The Ribbon Girl.  The large flower I have made myself with Foamiran.
 The beautiful ruffled ribbon is one of my favourites from The Ribbon Girl.  I've added pearl trim across the middle.
 I have decorated the inside of the card with a contrasting paper from the same pad as the inside is visible around the edges of the heart cut out.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at The Ribbon Girl.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations and for details of the gorgeous prize.  Thanks for looking! x

Ribbon Girl DT - Hanging Hearts

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share an anniversary gift I made a while ago but forgot to post, using products from The Ribbon Girl.  I use a Sizzix die to cut the hearts from chipboard covered with Craft & You paper.  I've then inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
 On the top heart I have added flowers and some crystal heart stems from The Ribbon Girl.  The silver spirals are the wires of the heart stems that I have twirled around a pencil.
 The letters and numbers were cut from a Pion Design paper.
 I have hung all of the hearts on ivory ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious DT - Midway Inspiration Post


Good morning!  I have a card to share today using a stamp from one of the new stamp lines that Shawn and Candy are carrying in the Magnolia-licious Store.
 I've painted Swiss Pixie Birgitta with Heart with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  She is super cute!
 I have cut some hearts with a Sizzix die from wood grain paper so that they look like they are wooden.  The doily is from my stash and the roses are from The Ribbon Girl.
 The sentiment is stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and I have added a rose and another little heart.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Don't forget our challenge is still running over on the Magnolia-licious challenge blog with a fabulous prize from the Magnolia-licious store for the lucky winner!  Thanks for looking! x

Magnolia-licious DT - Anything goes


 Good morning!  It is time for another 'Anything Goes' challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge.  I've been having fun using the stamps and dies from the Advent Calendar which contained the Recipe Card collection.
 I have painted Made with Love Tilda using Distress Inks.  All of the baking accessories were cut with dies from the collection.
 How cute is the little oven?  It is great fun to put together.  The flowers and pearl string are from The Ribbon Girl.
 It even has an oven shelf and little cookies - love it!
