Just Magnolia Challenge

This is my card for the just Magnolia challenge using the sketch included. I used the Ladybug Tilda stamp for this one. She's one that I had colored some time ago, I have to say she is one of my many favorites.

My Saturday night

It was just me and the kids tonite, and I took that free time and started making some cards with some of the Magnolia images I had already stamped and colored. So far I've gotten 3 cards made tonite; Fairydust Tilda, Bunny Tilda holding an egg and Happy Tilda. The cards all have their own type of unique look, Two of them I used sketches that I had found online awhile back and saved on my computer. The other one I just quickly slapped together when I realized I had papers that went perfectly with Tilda's outfit. Used a stampin up sentiment stamp and a stampin up stamp pad that happened to be a very similar blue.

A Halloween Tri-fold Shutter card

I have a friend of mine that is going to be having a space at a flea market and asked me to make some Halloween themed cards to sell. I made this one last night. I like this one the tri-fold. The Happy Halloween stamp with the spider is a Penny Black stamp. Magnolia image is Bat Tilda bought from Diana's. This little cutie was colored with copic markers. I didn't keep a list of the colors used but will try to do that in the future.

Tildaa with 3 flowers

I already had this little cutie colored, so putting together the card was relatively quick. Thanks for looking.

My first attempt using a digital stamp

Someone mentioned digital stamps to me last week. I found a site where I really liked the images that she had and figured I would give it a go. It's a very cute image, my one small complaint is that not all the lines in the image join, leaving things open to your own imagination as to where the color should end. Overall though, still happy with her and will probably try again. In case anyone is interested in checking out her beautiful digital stamps here's the link

I also have my first attempt at a handmade flower, I used the tutorial in the Magnolia Magazine this past summer. I added some stickles to the edges of the petal to make it pop a bit.

Another trifold shutter card

I changed the height on this one a little from the other one. On this one I used the baby Tingla Magnolia stamp. I wanted a lighter shade for her little outfit that would go with the papers, I think I am happy with the color I got. Would have preferred more of a baby pink or a softer pink, but I don't as of yet own these shades so made do with what I had on hand. Almost time for another copic order I think.

My first Tri Fold Shutter Card

I've seen a few of these on the web, one most recently on a stampin up demonstrators facebook. I love the style of this because it is so unique so I went in search of the tutorial for it. It's very easy to follow and despite how the cards looks very easy to make. Here is the link for anyone who's interested:

Edwin Chasing Butterflies

I had a lot of fun with Edwin. I had to first decide what colors to use on him and discovered something very cool today after having read some tips on copics. I used W3 over the red to get the result I did, it really helped to blend the two and give it the end result that I was looking for. The papers are basic grey that I found at my local Michael's store that I had just picked up today. The papers went perfectly and the one with the butterflies was the perfect paper for me to cut out the butterflies which I did. The sentiment I used is a Stampin Up Stamp that I also picked up today from a demonstrator that was getting rid of some of her things. All in all this card turned out better then I had expected.

Chasing Tilda

Someone made a comment once that my stamped images match my patterned paper, you'd probably guess that I prematch before I color in my images, but I don't. I just go through my papers to see what I have that would go with it. As luck would have it I had just bought some new papers that went with this one really nice. Found some paper flowers that matched it nicely as well. Pulled out my corner rounder which I hadn't used in quite some time to round up the corners and used a new border punch to give it a nice touch.

Pirate Edwin

My son was needing a 2L container for school, no idea what for. But I got the idea in my head awhile ago that I was going to alter the container and seeing as school starts in two days I took this task on today. I used my cricut to cut out some treasure chests and used three pirate edwins on it as well. He's very happy with it and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.

Here's baby Tingla. I had colored her last night using copic markers v15 & v12 for her sleeper and B04, and B00 for her little booties. That one was sold so I decided to color another one tonite and complete the card as well. I used pinks this time, R85 & R81 for the sleeper and R85 & R83 for the booties. I used a little bit of stickles on the wings and cut her out by hand. The flowers used are the mulberry roses. Turned out a little blurry on the left side with scanning due the flowers being on there. The title was printed from my computer. And the papers are K & Company. Thanks for looking.

A night out and here is some of what I got done

I was invited out to an evening of scrapbooking, which for me meant card making. I had just received my latest shipment of Magnolia stamps and brough them along to play. I finished 3 cards and stamped and colored 6 images. I had a very productive night and had tons of ladies coming by my table to see what I was doing. Here in Winnipeg these stamps are not well known and many had not yet seen them, but of course fell in love right away. I actually sold my Halloween card that I have posted on my blog as well as an image that I had just stamped and colored in that evening. Wasn't going there with the intention of selling anything so I was definetly surprised. I had it suggested to me that I should try and make as many between now and the next crop and try and sell them. Lol Here are the three cards that I made
