You Are The Blueberry To My Pancake

Hello Everyone, Happy Wednesday to you!

Today I am your host for the Magnolia-Licious Stamps, Dies and So Much More Store and also for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  

This month's challenge theme is use your birthstone color which some of you might not know that here in the US and Canada (and maybe a few other places around the globe), we have birthstones and flowers that coincide with our birth month.  For instance, my birth month is March and so my birthstone is Aquamarine and my flower is Daffodil.  It's really easy to find out your birthstone by Googling it.  Then, join our challenge HERE where you can win $20.00 to spend in the Magnolia-Licious store.

Today I bring you this card using the super sweet Breakfast At Tilda's stamp collection by Magnolia Sweden, exclusively made for Magnolia-licious.  Isn't she a beauty?  I've colored her up with Copic markers and accented with Distress Inks, white Gelly Roll pen, and Glossy Accents on the Maple Syrup bottle.

All of my flowers are hand made.  The little blue flowers are made using Magnolia DooHickey's Dies from the Box #9 and the white leaf stems are Box #12.  For the pink flowers I used the Spellbinders Vintage Rose dies, the green leaves are made with the Magnolia Rose Leaf die from the 2011 You're So Special collection and the blue gingham tags are cut with the Tilda Tag die from the 2011 Sweet Christmas Dreams.  Oh, and I cannot forget the Magnolia Silver Ware dies from the 2013 With Love collection.

I hand dyed the Vintage Seam Binding Ribbon with Aged Mahogany to match the pink flowers which were also colored with Distress Inks.  The sentiment there is included with the Breakfast At Tilda's stamp set.

Copic Markers - Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R01, R20, R22  Hair: YR21, E34, E53, E57  Pink: RV32, R83, R85, R89  Blue: BV17, BV20, BV23, BV29  Pancakes & Syrup: Y11, YR23, YR24, YR27  Counter & Stool: C00, C1, C3, E31, E35, E37  Shoes: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9  Leaves: YG91, YG95

Distress Inks: Aged Mahogany, Chipped Sapphire, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain

Thank YOU So Much for stopping by today and taking a look.  Don't forget to enter our challenge which ends on Monday, June 3rd.

Whimsy's Angel

Good day!!  If you are having a long weekend, I certainly hope you're enjoying it!!  This week I've paired up a Whimsy image called "Angel Nevaeh" with some gorgeous papers from LemonCraft called "Grown With Me".


I colored this cutie up using my Prismacolor pencil crayons.  Adorbs!!!
(All color combo's listed below)


Here I've used some chipboard from Laserowe Love "Floral Swirls", cut them in half and layered them under each of my bouquets.  I painted them using Adirondack's pearl acrylic paint dabber.


I've layered my burlap butterflies and added a little tiny vial of yellow glitter just for fun!


I hope you've enjoyed my make for this week!

Hugs,

Whimsy Fun

You may have noticed that Magnolia-licious has been expanding into more stamp lines and one of my favorites is Whimsy!!  So today I'm sharing a few cards that aren't quite my style but I still enjoyed making them nonetheless.  FUN!!!  

For my first card I've used Whimsy's "Penguin Poop" clear stamps.  It comes with 4 penguin stamps and quite a few extra sentiments and miscellaneous images.  Oh and the sentiments are hilarious so I knew I had to have this set!


I've used Laserowe Love's - Brick Background and Stitched Heart.  For the bricks I used my black Tim Holtz ink dauber and for the hearts I used my Copics markers.  On the hearts, I added some glossy accents for the shine.  It does make it a little hard to take a photo tho.


I love this Whimsy "Friend" die with the 3 layers.  What a great addition to my growing collection.  ha ha ha!!


My next card uses Whimsy's "Whale of a Time" clear stamp set and one of the sentiments that comes with the set.  Again, a great collection of images and sayings.  I added some chipboard from my stash and added a simple white seam binding bow.
 

I even got a little more creative and designed a shaker card with this one!  


Thanks for coming by!  I hope you have a great week!!!  
Hugs,
