Magnolia-licious Challenge -"Frame Projects" with a Recipe:

Happy Thursday! I think spring is just around the corner. We had the most gorgeous day - high 50's and sunshine.

This is my first time entering the Magnolia-licious Challenge. My good scrap buddy Kerry got me hooked on these adorable stamps.

I used my new stamp Tilda with Big Ribbon. My project was framed in a white picture frame. The background paper is from Chanteuse Collection from Kaisercraft. I used my Nestabilities Labels Ten and cut manila cardstock. To give the tag a vintage look it was inked with Scattered Straw, Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain Distress Ink from Tim Holtz. I love the glitzy look so I used cappuccino, forever green, plum and perfect gold -Perfect Pearls. And I almost forgot glimmer mist for the ribbon (forest green) and the flower creme de rouge and sand. Tilda was colored with Copic Markers E000, E00, E21, E25, E31, E50, R20 and R22. Lastly, I added some bling to the ribbon and flower to create the bouquet of flowers.

What a day! Had an awesome time with my scrap-a-holic friends. We went to Absolutely Everything and took two classes and of course we shopped. I will post those pictures tomorrow.

I used Amuse Snorkel Boy, Seaweed and Tiny Crab as my images. I colored the boy with Copic markers then I splattered Sand and Sea Glass Glimmer Mist for the background. To the shaker I added Melissa Francis Glitter Glass. Tied some thin twine around the outside of the circle and added these beautiful sea shells that I collect with my daughter-in-law every time I visit in FL. Added the sentiment which is also from Amuse.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Simply Elegant

I used one of my favorite stamps from Amuse -Damask Solid. It was little bit of a challenge for me to use black, white, and gray. I added some sheer black ribbon and some pearls.

Mini Tilda w/Striped Tights

I just got my order of mini Magnolias. I love them. Here is my first card with my minis.

I used Copic markers on the images, the flowers I painted the tips with Oriental Poppy and Sunflower Glimmer Mist, and the swirl embellishment is grunge board which I painted with the Oriental Poppy Glimmer Mist. I definitely need to buy this image full size. Enjoy your evening!
