FIrst Hello Kitty Birthday Card

Happy Saturday everyone.  Today I am sharing with you a birthday card that I made for a friend of mine who loves Hello Kitty a lot.  Although I too LOVE Hello Kitty, but this is actually my first time making a Hello Kitty card too. I made the card, but yet get a chance to bring it to my friend since she lives out of town.  However this card will be hand delivered to her when I see her early next month.  I bought a Sizzix Hello Kitty Die for a long time and yet had a chance to use it and and it was a perfect timing to use it for this birthday card.  In fact, I had quite a good time paper piecing the Hello Kitty head.
Here is my finished birthday card
I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Fun with Shapes and More Challenge #117 - Something with an animal
Heck of a Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge #8 - Anything Goes
Closer view showing you the Hello Kitty Sizzix die
 The only stamp I used for this card is the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment
 Added a butterfly using the Jolee's butterfly punch and added some gem stones on top
I added some Stickle to make the flowers look sparkly

I hope you all are enjoying the weekend and have fun the for the coming week.  See you soon :o)

Magnolia Christmas and Valentine's Blog Hop Projects

Good morning everyone. It is time for the Magnolia-licious September Blog Hop. If you are coming from the amazing RUBY'S BLOG , you are in the right track. If not, please go back to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to start this blog hop. This month's blog hop is 2 for 1 holiday - Take a holiday stamp create something with it and then re-invent it in some way for another occasion or event as well!.
I created a card and an altered house shape box using from Tilda with Snow Heart of the 2011 Sweet X'mas Dreams Collection from Magnolia-licious.

This is a reminder to let you know that after this hop, the next stop is over at my awesome buddy ANGELA'S BLOG. Be sure to see how wonderful Angela's creation is for more inspiration!!

Here are the finished projects, please scroll down for the additional pictures on these projects.

Here is the 1ST project:
It is a 'Valentine's' card. I also use a Magnolia Sentiment stamp for this card. I bought the lace trim wrapped around the oval frame from Hong Kong.

Here is the 2ND project:

I bought this 'house shape box' from Michael's decorated it with MME pattern paper. The window is cute from the PS small Madison Window. Because the box is a bit too small for the window, so I trimmed the side to fit better inside this house.

Now I have an extra box to store my lace trim :o)

Back view of this box. I stamped the Magnolia Christmas sentiment on a piece of vellum, then added the MB Musical Interlude and MB Treble Clef dies to fill up the empty back space.

That's all I have to share with you today. Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you get a chance to join us for the hop and the challenge :o)

Magnolia Teddy Bear Love Tilda Card

Hello all. My card to share with you today is teddy bear friend theme card. There are three images I picked for this card. The Teddy Bear Love , Sitting Tilda with Teddybear and Hobbie the Bear from Magnolia-licious Store. In addition to the images, I also used some die cuts from some wonderful dies.

Here is my finished card. Did you see this MB Orchard Tree Frame behind Tilda? The original size is a bit too long for my card size, so what I did was I folded the middle part to shorten the frame, then added the embellish tape to cover the middle fold lines. The leaf cuts were punched from Marianne Design Die Cutters. There are a lot of wonderful dies over at Magnolia-licious, so be sure to check them out. They definitely are great tools to embellish your card/craft projects.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Inspire Me Fridays 75 - Anything Goes
Midweek Magnolias Week #27 - Non Domestic Animals
Make It Monday #105 - Anything Goes

Here is the inside view. Sentiment stamp is a purchase from a trip in Vancouver years ago.

Here are the closer views of these Tilda images

And the closer view on this cute Hobbie the Bear from Magnolia-licious and the friends sentiment that I bought from Vancouver.
