It is true magic ….

Happy Tuesday evening my lovelies! I am quickly writing up this post to share this quick and easy card that I made. It was inspired by this card here. I fell in love with rainbow of ink colors and the simple embossing.

I simply pulled out some of my Distress and Hero art shadow inks that I had on hand already. The stars were made using this set: Star and Snowflakes backgrounds and the sentiment is from this set: Magic moments.

A fast, fun and happy card, don’t you think?

Whiff of Joy sneak peeks start today for our new April release! I am sure you are going to fall in love with all the new products! Mine just arrived today (dang Canada Post) but I have already dug into the packages and will have something to share with you tomorrow :)

Stamp and Create with Magnolia

Hello my lovelies and Happy Tuesday! I cannot even begin to tell you how busy I have been lately. What gives? I keep waiting for things to slow down but it is relentless. The boys seem to have soooo many school projects, after school activities and sporting events. Throw in birthday parties and other social functions, un predictable stormy weather resulting in snow days and we had a pretty busy month. Oh….did I mention that I spent a lot of time volunteering at the school?

I do try to squeeze in time to play in my craft studio. Problem is, I have trouble getting those finished projects photographed and blogged. Here is my card for the latest Stamp & Create with Magnolia Challenge: Use Flowers.

DSC_6988 copy

I used one of the new Magnolia Zodiac Collection images: Virgo Tilda.  She is so pretty. I pulled out this older Magnolia background stamps and masked the images together. It makes a really nice little scene.

I am in a water-coloring kick these days and used Distress Ink re-nkers and markers to color this up. I also added some of the amazing Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and some ecru seam binding.

Whiff of Joy ~ a Birthday Card

Happy Thursday my lovelies! I am well behind in posting this card. I created it for the Whiff of Joy Challenge, but as it runs for 2 weeks, you still have time to enter :)

DSC_6807 copy

I have fallen head over heels with our new feather stamps. I especially love how they look when embossed with embossing powder. I have been seeing this layered technique all over Pintrest so I thought I would give it a go. I forgot to take note of the card that inspired this. I thought I would remember and now I just can’t find it. So, just so you know, I found this idea from someone else :)

I just embossed different pieces of colored cardstock, cut them and then matched them up. I added an embossed sentiment and some pearls and my card was done.

Pisces Tilda Frame

Happy Monday my lovelies! Hope that your week is off to a wonderful start. I cannot believe that we are already at the end of March. This year is flying by so quickly!

When Magnolia released their newest collection based on Zodiac signs, I was pretty excited. They are really pretty. Here is my first creation using Pisces Tilda!

DSC_6982 copy

Believe it or not, I picked up this frame for $2 at the local Dollarama. I bought a total of 3 and just may go back for some more. Please excuse the fact that my image is crooked. I honestly did not notice this until just now when I added the picture. I wil have to go back and straighten it! I used some old (and I mean really old Magnolia patterned paper, some lace ribbon, seam binding and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to embellish.

DSC_6984 copy

Here is a close-up of the colored image. I water-colored it using Distress Re-inkers and Ink pads. I added some shimmer using my Wink of Stella glitter pen and I added Liquid Pearls to the water bubbles. I love the soft look water-coloring gives.

Here is the new from  Stamp and Create!

As a reminder, we are closed for Spring Break.

Orders placed will ship out on Monday, March 31st

**Magnolia Zodiac Collection - Now shipping

**Wild Orchids Crafts Flowers now shipping**

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your evening :)

Whiff of Joy March Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Whiff of Joy Blog Hop! This is the second stop of the hop. The Whiff of Joy blog is the first one!

This month, the Whiff of Joy Design Team is celebrating their “favorite things”. With so many amazing products in our collections, we decided it was time to do this type of hop. Each member has picked some of their very favorite Whiff of Joy products to showcase in their creations!

So, grab a cup of coffee and get yourself cozy and comfortable to hop along to see our Favorite things! A complete list of the hop can be found on the Whiff of Joy blog just in case you get lost along the way!

If you have been coming to my blog for any length of time, you know that I adore Whiff of Joy products. I have been part of the team since the beginning of 2009! So, to narrow down my favorite things to just a few is basically impossible. So, these are just some of my favorites!

I created a 6x6” notebook for my desk. I am constantly writing down reminders and check-lists and I like having them all collected in the same place. This image is part of the Zodiac collection. This images are given out as  bonus stamps for orders that are over 50 Euros. Then, the next month, they are available to purchase. Currently we are offering Pisces as the free stamp. This one that I used is Aquarius and is now available to purchase :)

I colored the image with gorgeous Twinkling H20s. I love the shimmer that the have. Such fun to water color with. I used my very favorite watercoloring paper.  I added some die-cuts from our fabulous die-lights collection. The alphabet, star and flourish that I have used here are some of my regular go-to favorites for embellishing. They were cut with some patterned paper and my favorite off-white cardstock. It cuts beautifully. The adhesive gems and brads are also favorites to embellish with!

Here are the product links for you:

 
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my favorite things. Enjoy hopping along to see the rest of the team’s favorites!
 
Your next stop is Sonja’s blog!
