Get Well Soon

I just got a few days ago my order of some Yummy-for-Your-Tummy stamps that were missing in my collection and i could not resist to add some of the new Magnolia papers as well. Saw too many nice cards made with it so i had to give it a try too

Since the card has not many layers i have just stamped the tea cup once onto Neenah White paper with Memento Ink, cut out with circle Nestabilities. Than stamped the cup again, colored with some grey makers, cut out and added Paper Glaze to it. Than once all dried adhered it with pop up dots over the cup stamped onto the circle. I first wanted to add to the handle of the cup the “get well” sentiment but loved the heart charm better.

Other: Nestabilities:Label , pin, Magnolia flower, lace, Pearl stickers, Fiskars Border punch

Hello and a wonderful Sunday. Today i want to show you a gift that i have prepared to give to a dear friend. I had to think and do some research to find something that i believe she does not already have :-) and that's hopefully her taste.On the first picture you can see the ebony finished hardwood box, which i could not resist to give some sparkle with Shimmerz spritz and decorated simply with a silver frame and some letters

Now of course the inside had to be decorated with my Magnolia's :-) i had several images out even the new Christmas ones but i ended up with this lovely die cut irecent paper and layered that one over a sheet of pink patterned paper. From there i knew, which Tilda i wanted to use. I think it is just a nice all year round image, she's hopefully not bored of to see.

Here are some extra pictures - i did not fill up the box entirely to show you how absolutely PERFECT the Shimmerz paints fit into that box. However i could not go to crazy with decorating the inside of the box otherwise it would not close anymore. Oh, and the other day when i got myself some extra paints, i got "Opal" which does not look every exciting on the pictures but oh.. when i used it.. it is very lovely! I think it gives the paper a settled vintage look without overpowering with too much pink. I have mixed this color with Candle light and the result was really pretty as well.
If you like to know where to get this box, please email me i will share the information, i just simply don't want my friend to know how much the box was.
Thank you for visiting me today i appreciate your time.

Glitter Me Silly

Hello all … oh… today is a fun challenge posted over on Cute Card Challenge blog :-) “Glitter Me Silly” looove it – you can give me this challenge anytime of the year lol. Okay… there is something about this Tilda… first i saw her used on a card last year by my friend Jacqueline. After that i HAD to have her. By the time i had her – it was too late in the season to use her on cards.. and this year.. i don’t know.. i have started to color her 2x and than misplaced my design paper that i had matched the colors with and the images never made it onto a card. hahaha… just so you know there might be coming some more cards with her if i ever remember what papers to use with the image.

I think iam a bit chatty today. Back to the card… the paper here is one sheet of double sided Reminisce paper. I love the strong reds on it. The entire punched out lattice i used lots of Stickles and also on the swirls and candy she is having in her basket. On the ground i have used Flower Soft Polar White for sparkle. Polar White has a bit more sparkle in it than the Ivory color. Unfortunately i could not get it really nice to show on my picture. I think it is wroth to get that color. (you know me.. i do not use Flower Soft that often)

Other embellishments not mentioned above: Felt flowers are by “Little Yellow Bicycle”, red glove charm (Merry Minis – Michaels) ribbon (Magnolia), Hardware (Stampin up) Gems (Hero Arts

Thank you for visiting me today i appreciate your time.

Absolutely Fabulous

Jaqueline came up for this week with wonderful sketch that requires a big snowflake in the center. I like her sketch has only one layer of Designer paper and rest can be done just with embellies. The lady in my local scrapbook store cut for me 2 snowflakes with her Cricut and i had one half piece left – which i was able to use for today. Since i just had half of the flake, i felt that i had to dress that piece up a bit more .. so i have used first Shimmerz Babies Breath for shimmer and than once dried i added Liquid Pearls on it.

As far as choice of Tilda :-) i guess i went with her because i had never used her before and she is one that i have not seen on blogs often. I think she is in the Winter 2008 Collection with skiing Tilda and Edwin.

Stamps: Magnolia, Sentiment: Papertrey ink Papers: i believe K&Company
Shimmerz (Babies Breath) Stampin up, Tim Holz Liquid Pearls, Making Memories (button, brads), Michaels (little snowflake), “Glitter doms” (Archivers)

I Cased Pauline

Hello and a happy Sunday. Today i can show my last DT card that i have made with supplies sent by Magnolia. As you can see, my Inspiration came 1:1 by the sample card i have seen on the Magnolia Inspiration blog. This card is made within like 15-20 minutes. Which shows you, that if you love Magnolia’s that you do not need always spent a lot of time to come up with lots of layers and coloring. They just simply make nice and sweet cards!
To “pep” Edwin’s white clothes up i have first colored with Copic sketch C1 the shadows and than went over with my Copic Glitter pen to add sparkle.

Thank you for visiting me today i appreciate your time.
