Stamp and Create with Magnolia: Challenge #41

Happy, happy Friday my lovelies. Can you believe that it is August already? The Summer is flying by and pretty soon we will have to just get down to the business of buying school supplies and uniforms :( Things that my kids love (not) to do!

The new challenge over at Stamp and Create with Magnolia is:
Challenge #41:
Anything Goes
Prize:

Stamp and Create carries a wide range of Magnolia stamps at some of the lowest prices!

Since there is an on-going Christmas sale, I decided to create a Christmas insert for my PL album. I couldn’t however use traditional colors….I went with a soft pink, blue and green scheme instead. The image is Peaceful Tilda from Magnolia’s 2013 Winter Wonderland Collection. I also die-cut some cute Magnolia Christmas trees to complete the scene :)

Whiff of Joy

Happy Tuesday! Here I am back again, You have the rainy day that we had yesterday to thank. We were tucked indoors for a majority of the day and it gave me some extra time in my wee craft studio!

I am trying to build up a collection of cute little sets of cards that can be mailed off quickly and without a huge postage cost. Minimize the bulk and you will be able to send these at a reasonable price ;)

  1. Start with  a few different colors of cardstock and matching ink pads.
  2. Cut the colored cardstock to measure 4’ x 5.25”.
  3. Cut card bases from regular white cardstock to measure 4.25’ x 5.5”. Fold in half and round  corner.
  4. Using a background stamp, stamp each piece of colored cardstock with the coordinating ink. Round upper right corner.
  5. Pick a focal image stamp. I used the gorgeous WoJ  Feather stamp set for my cards. Emboss using white embossing powder.
  6. Cut vellum strips to measure 2” x 4”. Sew onto your colored cardstock with white thread. I used a zig zag stitch.
  7. Adhere to the car dbases. Add assorted bling and stamp your sentiment with black ink. I used various sentiments from Whiff of Joy.
  8. Set aside to dry so that the ink sets and will not smear on the vellum

That’s it. By doing this in assembly line steps, you will have a whack of cards in no time flat!

Drip Drop Tilda

Happy Monday! After a very full and busy weekend, it is kind of nice to greet Monday once again :) I have a fun new card to share with you featuring one of the lovely Special Edition stamps; Drip Drop Tilda. I really, really love this stamp!

DSC_7601 copy

I created the background effect using plain cardstock, ink, embossing paste, glitter and a stencil. It was a ton of fun and I will be using this technique again for sure. I added a little scrap of patterned paper, a sentiment from Verve and my card was done!

Sweet Mermaid

Happy Wednesday! We are back from being at the beach! A lovely time was had by all and I am suddenly knee deep in laundry! We are also gearing up for a big birthday bash for my soon-to-be 9 year old! Keep your fingers crossed for some nice sunny weather as we are planning a BBQ!

DSC_7506 copy

Here is the card that I made for the most recent Stamp and Create with Magnolia challenge. The theme is Summer Fun. I can’t think of any place better to have fun than at the beach, swimming in the ocean….which is why I chose this sweet mermaid :)

It is a pretty basic card. I coloured the image, masked it and then airbrushed it. I added some Liquid Pearls to create the bubbles.

Whiff of Joy Bees

Happy Thursday my lovelies! I hope you are enjoying your Summer so far. We have been on a totally different time-table lately and I must say, I am enjoying it. Still a lot going on but at a much more relaxed pace! We were away for a little bit enjoying cottage life and all that entails. Now, we are back for a bit before heading out once more. Love, love Summer!

Here is a little tag project that I made using a very sweet image :)

Not much really to say. Apart from the twine, ribbon and gems which were from my stash, everything else is from Whiff of Joy. I really love how all the products work so well together!

Here are some links for you:
