I Bee-lieve in You

I created the large yellow flower with White Foamiran and the gorgeous Peony Flower Die from Whimsy Stamps.  I added yellow ink to the flower pieces prior to heating it with an iron to curl the foam.  I added yellow pearl stamens during the assembly process.


The paper is from Maja Designs - Vintage Spring Basics 6x6 paper pad and others from my stash.  The sentiment is also from the Bee Happy Day Kit.  I added half-back pearls to add just the right amount of detail to finish my card.

XOXO Tilda

Hi Everyone!  Thank you for stopping by the Magnolia-Licous Challenge Blog.  
Let me introduce myself.  I'm Dawn and I'm the newest Design Team member for the Magnolia-Licious Stamps, Dies and So Much More Store.  I am thrilled to be a part of this lovely team of ladies.  
In going with the challenge theme of the color of your birthstone I used some white and purple in my card.  My birthday is in June so my birthstone is a Pearl or Alexandrite.  You can join the challenge HERE where you can win $20.00 to spend in the Magnolia-Licous store.


This little cutie is XOXO Tilda from the Hugs and Kisses Collection by Magnolia Sweden.  I used Winsor Newton Cottman Watercolors as well as Tombow Dual Brush Markers.  I also used Prisma Colored Pencils for depth and contrast and Derwent Inktense Pencils.



I made the flowers with Foamirian using Lady E Design Flower 001.  The sentiment is Recollections  Signature Just a Note Stamp Kit.  I used Spellbinders Label 34 and Gold Label 34 to cut XOXO Tilda and Spellbinders Small Circles to cut the sentiment.  I used Close To My Heart  Pansy Purple ink pad for the sentiment.  The butterfly and leave dies are from my stash. The paper pad I used is Lemon Craft Daydream.

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,
