Tilda by Princess Castle Party Invitation Card

Good morning everyone. Another card to share with you today is using more images from the newest Magnolia Princes and Princesses Collection. Besides coloring the Party Tilda with Copics, I also did airbrush on the background on the Princess Castle image. Boy oh boy, I sure had fun cutting the little clouds and adhered them after, lol

Here is my finished card

I am using this card for the following challenges:
Truly Scrumptious Challenge 77 - Lace
Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes
Stamp n Doodle's Challenge - Embossing
Party Time Tuesdays Challenge PTT 61 - Anything Goes
Magnolia Down Under Challenge 139 - Bingo (Lace, dies/or punches, Ribbons)
Make It Monday Challenge 82 - Anything Goes
One Stitch At a Time Challenge 106 - Anything Goes
Creative Mondays CH4 - Anything Goes

Closer view on these colored images

Here are some pictures to show you how I airbrushed the background of this card. First, stamp the Princess Castle image on a piece of cardstock (I use the XPress it blending card). Then stamp image one more time on a piece of paper (can be scrap or a thin paper), cut the castle image out from the scrap or thin paper. Use removable adhesive to cover the cut out castle on top of the castle image of the XPress it blending card. Using the Airbrush to spray the top sky part with blue color.

Use Green color to spray the bottom part as grass field. After finish all the airbrushing, remove the cover image, then start coloring the castle as usual using Copic/Primascolors pencils. I also wanted to mention the Stay Put Craft Mat here. That is the kraft mat you see under the image. OMG, I can't tell you enough how much I love this mat. It's very thick, not like the flimsy ones that thin like a piece of paper. This mat is totally wonderful. It has a good rubber feel layer at the bottom that allows a good grip between the mat and my craft desk, so it wont' shift things around. If you haven't get one yet, I highly recommend it!! Very easy to clean up too~

I used the Please Join Princess sentiment inside as a party invitation

Magnolia Tilda's Spring Treats Holder Card

Spring is here and we finally see more sunshine lately. How about another Springy project. Today's project is chocolate eggs treat holder card. Checking my stamp inventory, I took out Tilda with Stuffed Animal from the Butterfly Dreams Collection. The inside image is Tilda with Peony Tails. It's a treat holder card, so I picked a treat related Magnolia Sentiment to go with it.
Here is my finished project. The window is cut out from the Grande Madison Window Die Cutter. My DP is Magnolia Paper Pack from Magnolia-licious.

I am using this project for the following challenge:

Magnolia Tilda with Floating Hearts Love birthday card

Hello Maggie Lovers. Hope you had a great time blog hopping from my last blog post. Tonight is a card project using another image from the new Princes and Princess Collection. I think this Tilda with Floating Hearts stamp from Magnolia-licious is so sweet. There are also the baby Tilda & Edwin stamps from this collection that are so adorable as well, but I have to share them with you some other times due to quite a few prescheduled blog post orders .

Normally, my favorite size of cards are mostly 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". However, this one is 6" x 6" due to the large border punch I used. Besides the punch, I used lots of die cuts too. Since there are lots of textures from all the die cuts, I didn't do any embossing to add more textures.

Here is my finished card.

I am using this card for the following challenges:
Paper Creations Ink Challenge #21 - Things with Wings
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge - March Ribbon or Lace
Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge - Things with Wings
Stampin with the Dragon Challenge #6 - Things with Wings
Let's Ink it Up Challenge #21 - Flowers
PanPastel UK Challenge #10 - Add a Flower
Sentimental Sundays Challenge #94 - Metal (metal charm)
Gingerloft Challenge GL36 - Happy Birthday
Bloggers Challenge - Birthday
So Artful Challenges - Harlequin and/or black & white
Fashionable Stamping Challenge #17 - Bingo (Show some metal, lace, words)
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Bingo (Flowers, punched shapes, Lace)

Closer view of this sweet Tilda image on the left. I colored her with Copic markers & shading with Prismacolor pencils. You can see on the right a closer view of the little cute 'love' charm I got from my sweet friend SUZAN. The pretty rosy lace trim on this card is also from her. Thank you SUZAN!!

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Easter Bunny Blog Hop for the month of March. If you are coming from the talented JANIEL'S BLOG, you are in the right track, otherwise, please go to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to start this hop. This month's theme is "The Easter Bunny Hop", so we are creating fun/cute packages, bags or boxes for Easter eggs/treats.

My project today is a basket & card set using some bunny stamps. Digging through my stamp inventory, I found that I had a few from Magolia-licious. I colored the Little Bunny Tilda for my card, then checked out my mini stamps binder and picked four more for my basket. The mini version of the Little Bunny Tilda and the Bunny Tilda is sit on the Easter Egg are set on the side edge, then I also used the Tilda with Daisy for the side tag.

Here is the finished Easter Bunny card & basket set

Here is the full view of the card. I tried to pick some spring colors.

Magnolia Ducky Duck and Sally the Monkey Cards

Happy weekend everyone. Well, it's not so happy for me, because my husband and I attended our friend's funeral yesterday. We haven't attended one since my dad's funeral back in December. Since yesterday is past, I think we should all wipe our tears and start fresh again. Let's not talk about sadness, but look forward for the bright days. Today I have a couple cards to share with you. Sometimes I wish I have an extra pair of hands with all my new stamps, lol. There are more projects coming up soon with the new collections. Now, I am posting the two cards using a couple animal stamps from the new Princes and Princesses Collections that you can purchase from Magnolia-licious. Since we are going to start fresh, I used some bright colors on them.

Here are the finished cards using the Ducky Duck and Sally The Monkey stamps.

The first card is a friendship card using the Ducky Duck image. Because this is such a large stamp, so I wanted to make this little cutie as the focus on this card. As you notice I didn't put a lot of details on the card. He is colored with Copic Markers.

Closer view on this colored image.

Here is my second card. If you look closer, I added a sheet of vellum on the DP. Because this image is holder a blank piece of paper, I just wanted to use this Magnolia Sentiment on this card to match the blank piece of paper Sally is holding.

Closer view of this cute Sally the Monkey image. I added Stickls on the branch and Sally's crown.
