Bat Tilda

This one was a lot of fun even if I was a little unsure of using greys as this was my first time and I don't have a lot of greys just yet. But I'm pleasantly surprised with how this little cutie turned out. I used a little bit of stickles on the wings and the bottom of the pants. Papers are magnolia. They were perfect for this one, and the background stamp is also magnolia.

Flying Tilda

Went with a bit of a distressed look for the card itself. Image colored with copic markers, also used stickles to enhance the wings and the wand. I am loving playing with these stamps. My oldest daughter thinks I'm addicted, I think she might be right, lol. Off to finish with my bat Tilda, worked on this one while she was drying. I can see that there will be endless possibilities here. I'm determined to do one of each stamp before I start seeing what else I can come up with. But I'm thinking I'm going to have to place another order real soon.

As I was typing this my oldest daughter who's 17 stopped to look at the card. She hasn't really commented on any of the others but she did with this one. I'm thinking maybe she'll be getting this one as a birthday card.

Another take on Tilda with raindrops

I went by my LSS today and picked up some new papers after dropping off my oldest daughter at work. I think I prefer this look. Let me know what you think.

Tilda with Raindrops

Not too sure about this. I am happy with how Tilda turned out, not sure about the papers I chose though. Who knows, I might end up redoing it if I can find the right papers to go with the colors on Tilda. It was nice being able to use some different colors, including the browns, greens and yellows.

Yipee! I got my first order of copics today!

I've been able to add to my colors, but still waiting on a second order and thinking of placing a third. I've been trying to figure out the different colors I want to be able to work with. But mainly it's all about having fun. Thanks for all the wonderful comments, they put a smile on my face. Ended up staying home with one of the kids that was under the weather today so I will be playing some more in between loads of laundry and looking after the kids.

Butterfly Tilda

Well this would be my third card of the day. Not sure that I'm going to be doing anymore after this one tonite. Sadly I have to return to work tomorrow, I don't think my boss would appreciate me playing hookie, lol. For this card I dragged out my sewing machine, it's been a very long time since I have used it to sew on paper. And even though it is certainly more time consuming it's worth the effort. I'm quite pleased with how the colors turned out on this one. Unfortunately the scan is a little fuzzy along the bottom portion due to the thickness of the flower that I have on there.

Ballerina TIlda

My 2nd card using Magnolia`s. They are definetly getting a little easier. I tried to do a little something different this time with this card. I used my storybook cartridge for my cricut for the pink flower that`s in the background and used 3D pop dots to make Tilda ``pop``. I`m definetly addicted to these little cuties, they are so much fun to bring to life.

My first ever Magnolia card

I got my first shipment of Magnolia stamps yesterday and didn`t waste anytime starting to play. I got this little cutie all colored in last night and hate to wait for the stickles to dry before I could add her to a card and finish it all up. I still don`t have many copic markers as I am waiting on a couple of shipments in the mail. But I still think she looks cute even with my limited supply of color. Looking forward to being able to do more shading as the colors come in. Got my 2nd shipment today and there are so many cute ones, I just don`t know which one to try next. Looking forward to sharing future creations.

One of my first attempts with copic

This is going to be a birthday card for my 4 yr old stepdaughter. I had a very limited amount of copics to work with on this one, but despite that I am still quite happy at how it turned out. Anxious to see what I can do with more colors though. I think she'll love this with all the glitter and it being a princess fairy and all.

One more

Again this one was also made before I took the plunge into copics. I've used stickles on it to make it pop a little more.

A card made with a penny black stamp

This one is not made using copic markers, in fact this stamp was colored in before I got hooked on copics. But I still like the way that the card turned out.

Welcome to my blog!

This is my first time posting here and first time having created a blog. I'm new to the world of Magnolia stamps as well as copic markers but am having a ton of fun learning as I go along. Stay tuned for pics of my work. Thanks
