Silent Night

Happy Monday,

Can you believe Christmas is 10 days away? Are you ready? I wish I could say I was but not......

I would like to share my tag for Magnolia Forever's challenge this week Christmas. I chose to use white as my main color and added a bit of green. I used Pion and Maja paper. My image was colored with Copic Markers. To embellish my design I add a little frantage, bling, ribbon and  Magnolia Doo Hickey dies heart tag and poinsettias. I distress all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Tea Dye Ink.

Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday,

Today I would like to share my DT project for Midweek Magnolias "Anything Goes". I created a Tussie Mussie. Suzi's inspired me so much I decided I had to create one. I used the large Magnolia butterfly stamp and paper pieced with Pion sewing paper. Below are the other goodies I chose:

Graphic 45 paper & Pion Paper
Magnolia Doo Hickey Dies - large butterfly, Tilda Tag, Angel wings
Bling
Toule, flower trim
Flower, metal & resin embellishments
Many of my embellishments we made from the Pion Paper.

I hope I have inspired you to try one! Here the link I viewed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VaWm_dYzt0&noredirect=1. Enjoy!

Noel tilda

Happy Last Day of November! Head on over to Simply Magnolia for our Vintage challenge.

I chose to create a tag using Sweet Noel Tilda. I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced Noel. The tag was made from Go Create dies and dies from the Magnolia Christmas Doo Hickey
club. The paper is from Maja Christmas pad. To embellish the tab I used a rusted star and snowflake. I kept it pretty simple but did add some shabby green frantage.

The stamps I used were Tilda with Spring Heart, Chocolate and Chocolate Sitting Cabinet. To complete my design I added lace, tulle bows, bling, die cuts (Magnolia Heart Tag and Dragon Fly Doo Hickeys & Lala Land flowers.

Happy Birthday Tilda





Can you believe it is the middle of November? I have heard of lots of snow and cold weather this week. I am happy to be in Florida. Yes, it is going to get down in 30's next week but I don't think I will be seeing any of that white stuff.

I made this sweet Tilda card for a special friends birthday next week. I used My Precious Daughter paper from Pion - so gorgeous. I used Tilda with a present and colored her with Copic Markers R0000, R00, R01, R20, E70, E71, E74, G91, G93, W0, W01. I added flowers, metal embellishment, ribbon, trim bling and some Shabby Pink Frantage. I used Spellbinder dies, Magnolia Doo Hickey Butter Fly Die and Stamp'n Up Tag Punch.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
