Magnolia Summer Flower Tilda Card

Good morning. Today I am sharing a card with another Magnolia stamp from the Summer Memories Collection. She is Summer Flower Tilda. Not sure if you've seen the stamps from this collection yet, but all of them are so adorable. If you haven't seen them all yet, be sure to check them out over at Magnolia-licious Store.

Here is my finished card. I've colored her dress in two tones. This is actually my first time trying to color an outfit using two totally different colors (Copic markers on BV and R). It sure was a bit of challenge to me, but was quite fun.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Southern Girls Challenge #45 - Dying to diecut/punch
Crafts and Me Challenge - Flowers
The Paper Shelter Challenge #65 - Bling It On
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #29 - Things with Wings
Dutch Magnolia Lovers #32 - Photo Challenge
Sweet Stamps Challenge #66 - Anything Goes
Going Grey with Scarp-Creations - Bingo (Glitter, Flowers, Ribbon)
Make It Monday #90 - Anything Goes

Here is a closer view showing you the spark parts on Tilda. Behind her were the Memory Box Catalina Wreath Die and the butterfly die from Spellbinder.

I added some texture by dry embossed the green cardstock.

Just wanting to show you a closer view on this butterfly stick I got from a dollar store. I don't like buying craft supplies from any dollar store simply because I just don't trust the quality. I really like the way this sticker made by vellum with the silvery dots on it, so I got it anyways. However, I actually took this butterfly apart and removed the foam dots that came with it by replaced my own glue dots and added my own silver gems on it to make sure it won't fall apart.

YNS Matilda From Australia You're My Pal Card

Good morning everyone. Today is the last Friday of this month and it is also my last YNS GDT post for May. I just love the World Kids Collection from Your Next Stamp. Therefore, the stamp I prepared for this post was from the World Kids Collection. It is the cute Matilda from Australia. Isn't she a darling image?!

Here is the finished card. The clouds were cut from one of the DPs from Echo Park. However, you should check out this Puffy Cloud Die Set from YNS that would be a great tool for embellishments. I am also using this card for more challenges. Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for the challenges.

YNS Splash Summer Mermaids Scrapbook Page

Good Morning!! Time flies and it's already the 3rd YNS project for the month. This time, instead of a card, I made a mini scrapbook page layout just for a change. My daughter loves mermaid when she was little. I think this will be a layout I would use with one of her younger picture and frame it in a shadow box. When I first noticed Your Next Stamp, it was when I saw the darling mermaid banner over at Splitcoaststamps. I couldn't resist not to use these mermaids again

Here is my finished layout. You can check out these darling YNS mermaids over at Under the Sea section from Fhiona Design.

I am using this page for the following challenges:
Mema's Craft Challenge - Bingo (Bling, Die Cute & Embossing)
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge - Bingo (Patterned Paper, Coloured image, punches/die cuts)
Just Keep on Creating Challenge #2 - Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious Challenge #80 - Anything Goes

The Splash title is used from the glittery chipboard letters.

Here is the slot for picture insert. I am going to pick a picture of my daughter when she was little and trim it to the size of the insert card and slide it in to the slot.

Here is the view to show you the dimension of this card
For more YNS inspirations, be sure to check out the YNS blog to see other DT's wonderful creations. Thank you so much for stopping by and I have another YNS project to show you. See you again soon :o)
