Magnolia Challenge Anything goes

This is a super quick and simple card. The card is from paper mania elements and is great if you want to make a quick card at short notice. I had already got my Tilda stamped and coloured waiting for a project and to finish off i just stamp a sentiment at the bottom and added a bow. I am entering the card into this weeks just magnolia challenge which is anything goes.

Penny Black Engagement Card

Well I thought I would give the Magnolia stamps a rest and have used a Penny Black stamp for this Engagment card. I have used the blueberry hill papers again, they are beautiful to work with and are so easy to match up.

I have coloured my image with promakers, Iam not so good with colouring animal images need some practice. I have stamped the sentiment with two different stamps which has worked quite well. Last but not least added some flower embellishments and a splash of stickles.

Silhouette SD

I have invested in this great machine and I think it is fantastic, there is so much you can do. The software is so easy to use all the designs can be resized to suit your requirements. I have so many ideas for it I dont know where to start. My first project  was for my neices 21st Birthday I downloaded the number 21 design from the online store, resized it to 6x6 inches and cut it on some blueberry hill backing paper. I then cut the design again on plain card and layered them together so that the card was sturdy. I stamped and coloured a tilda in promarkers and placed her on the card and added a bow.

New Magnolia Card

Well heres to another Tilda card, and my discovery of stickles. Since my last Blog i have officially turn Forty and its not as bad as I thought it would be, after all its just another number. As it was my birthday the other week my hubby treat me to some more tilda stamps (Yippee). So here is the first one. I have gone with a rose theme using papers from papermania blueberry hill which are gorgeous. I stamped my tilda image and coloured her with promarkers, I then stamped around the edge of my topper with a little rose bud stamp (inkadinkado) with colour box cats eye pigment ink. Then i matted and layered my papers on to my card and inked around the edges. I added my roses with silicon glue. Finally i added crystal stickles around the edges to give my card a gorgeous sparkle.
