Magnolia-licous Homepage Challeng

Here is the bookmark I made for the Magnolia-licious yahoo groups homepage challenge. This bookmark hooks onto the corner of the page to mark the spot. Used sitting Tilda with Hat for the inner circle. The circles were cut with the Nestabilities dies and used Pink Carnation and Key Lime CS from CTMH. Colored her with copics, edged the bookmark with the MS Border punch and added ribbon for embellishment. You can find the directions for making the corner bookmark HERE

Just Magnolia Week 18 Challenge

The challenge for this week on Just Magnolia is a friendship theme. I used the Cherry Tilda from Magnolia-licious and stamps from Unity Stamp Co for the Cherry inside and the sentiments. CS is from CTMH and DCWV. Used the new Borderabilities dies from Spellbinders to make the "fence" Tilda is sitting on and the inside too. Colored with Copics and used CTMH inks for the cherry border and sentiments. Hope you like it!

Sitting Tilda

Made another birthday card for a friend of mine who's birthday is coming up next week! I used the Sizzix embossing folder on the Core'dinations Whitewashed CS and sanded it. Colored with copics and used the Nestabilities Scalloped circle and regular circle for Tilda to sit on. Used dimensionals on both the Tilda and the circle to give it dimension. Used clear buttons glued on to the DP with CTMH liquid glass to have them match. DP is "Cabana" from Inque Boutique. Also used the Spellbinder to cut the sentiment label and yellow satin ribbon. On the inside I used the peg stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry to make the border on the sentiment inside and layered it on the embossed Core'dinations paper and DP.

Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge #7

This is the card I made for the Peachy Keen Challenge #7. I used Basic Grey Orange Cream card stock from the Lime Rickey collection and Black Magic Coor'dinations cardstock for the background and embossed it with Cuddlebug pumkin vine embossing folder. Used Paper Dolls Cartridge for my Cricut to cut the "ghost" and stamped spider webs in the corners and used Stardust stickles to make them stand out. Stamped the face with Peachy Keen Rag Doll Faces #673 to make the face. Used Ric Rac ribbon to embellish and Studio G stamps to stamp "boo".

A Gift of Love

I have been asked to be on the Design Team for The Crop Shop in the Hempfield Plaza in Greensburg. I am very honored to have been asked. Here is the cards I made for August using Bo Bunny A Gift of Love papers. The first is a Joy Fold Card and the second is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" card. I also used the stamp also from the Crop Shop. I used Wedding Pearl brads for accent on both cards.
