These are beauties........

Summers are usually full of Weddings and family anniversaries so I could not wait to make some cards with the 2010 Wedding Collection Stamps from the Magnolia Collection which you can find here. I gave the first one to my husband for our 16th Wedding anniversay and the next two are for colleagues (hopefully they don't look at my blog...) for later this summer. I find it a bit easier to make a few cards with similar layouts and then add the image that I want when I need the card. The third card uses an image from stamping bella.


Thanks for looking!

Magnolia July Mingle Easel Card - Butterfly theme

I made this card for the Magnolia July Mingle and the theme we had to follow was "Butterflies" I stamped with tilda holding a basket of flowers which is one of my favorite stamps you can find here. I love the open gate as well from Magnolia stamps and this was first time I colored it. I also used the butterfly stamp sets from Close To My Heart called "Butterfly Wings" which I love to stamp with three different ink colors to create the flying effect. In retrospect, I regret that I did not put the three flower brads in the lower right corner to the lower left hand corner to create more "balance" in the card. I really enjoyed making it for someone else that I do not even know but who also has a passion for these precious stamps! I look forward to many more mingles....

Thanks for Looking!

Farewell Magnolia cards

I made these cards for two co-workers who are leaving. I used Magnolia stamps and gardenia flowers which you can find here. I made each card with the two scoops Basic Grey paper and the roses are from a local craft store. The images are colored wiht copic markers and I used stickles on the ballerina Tilda image.

Check out these Magnolia Gift Card Boxes!

I made these gift boxes for each of my roomies at the CTMH Convention in Washington, DC which I just returned from. The recipe for how to make them are in the Fairytale Magnolia Ink magazine on page 40. I am really happy with how they turned out. I recommend you use really strong adhesive to hold the sides down. Try them....they were a hit!

Thanks for looking!
