Magnolia-licious Color Challenge - Black, Pink & Red

Hello every and welcome to another Magnolia-Licious Challenge. This month's challenges host is by our sweet DT Tracy. Tracy picked the colors of Black, Pink & Red to be the color combo for our color challenge this time. Remember to join us for the fun everyone just by using these colors to create a project. It can be anything with a Magnolia stamp from a simple card, a scrapbook page, 3D projects, an altered item or anything you can think of.

I've been making so many cards lately, so this time I decided to make an altered project. The project I made for to, day is a paperbag card teabag holder. I used to make a lot of paper bag albums, but kinda given up after I fell in love with cardmaking. The other day, I found some unused paper bags I got years ago, so I thought of making a similar item with it. On this paper bag, I used TILDA WITH BIG RIBBON , WITH ALL MY LOVE sentiment, and LOVE HEART of 2009's Valentine Collection from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS STORE.

Here is my finished paperbag card/tea bag holder

A closer view on this cute Tilda with Big Ribbon stamp and a closer view of the little hearts embellishments that I bought years ago from Queen & Co.

In case you are wondering what's inside the side pocket, here shows you a couple tag cards, I added to the side for extra writing area or you can adhere some pictures on these tags.

Inside view, left side a little pocket to insert the tea bag and right side is the writing area

Side view of this project

Here is the full view of the inside. I originally made a little tag pocket to hold the tea bag, but it was too wide to fit the pocket, so I have leave the tea bag itself to tuck in instead of putting it in the tag.

I am also using this project for the following challenges:
Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar Week 92 - Ribbon
PaperPlay Challenge 11 - Week 5 - Stamp it Out
CCH 53 - Lots of love
Craft Your Passion Challenge #33 - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft Challenge 128 - Seeing Red
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #53 - Ribbon
Stamp with Fun Challenge #97 - Love
WWUSAC13 - Use ribbon and/or bow

Hope to see you joining us and have lots of fun with this challenge. See you soon :o)

Hi Cabio,
Gosh I love your tea bag/ card. What a great idea!
Tilda is so beautifully coloured!
I love those teeny little hearts you have attached to your great ribbon :o)
Your project is wonderfully decorated and your tags for the inside with the tea bag are lovely.
I see that you used more than one Magnolia stamp too and I love that!
Fantastic work!
Hugs, Candy

Cabio, I love your teabag holder card. Oh, I was just thinking it would be perfect for a get-well card--you know with a chamomile tea bag inserted...LOL. Love this Tilda image--I have yet to play with mine. Awesome colouring as always.

Beautifully done Tilda with Big Ribbon and fun pockets and embellishments! Terrific job Cabio!!!

Hanneke said...

Great idea for a special kind of card! I love tea (drinking it at the moment :p) This is also a great idea to give to a friend who is nog feeling well. I like the tags that come out of the card, gives you a lot of space, for pictures, maybe a recipe and to write on.
