Hot Air Ballnoon Magnolia Tilda and Edwin Wedding Center Piece

Good morning everyone.  Thank you for stopping by for this is a pre-scheduled post.  Today is my nephew Victor's wedding and I am currently in San Francisco attending his wedding. Congratulations to VICTOR & JOCELYN!!! I am going to share with you a centerpiece I made for them.  This project actually took me a LONG time.  I bought this Hot Air Balloon template from Sandra's Scrapshop.  This shop has so many cool templates, so I am sure you will have fun checking it out.  I actually finished this balloon for a while, but had a hard time choosing my stamp to use for this project, so I sort of half finished, then left it on my craft desk for a while before I picked it back up to finish it off.  Good thing that the Special Moment Collection has the Doo Bee Pops Bride Tilda, I used it embellish the top part of this project, then I found the Loving Bridal Couple Stamp (the Mini one is still available)  to fit inside the balloon.

Here is a closer view to show you the mini sand bags.  I used some white felt, and used a glue gun to put them together, then tied a ribbon after.

Love is in the Air Magnolia Vintage Bridal Couple Three Steps Wedding Card

Good morning everyone. Thank you for stopping by and today is another challenge over at Magnolia-licoius and Wee Stamps Challenge for July and our theme this time is ''Love is in the Air". That means, you can create a love project ie.- Wedding/Romance.  For this challenge, I created a wedding card for my nephew who is getting marry in California this weekend and I will be flying there in just a few days to attend the wedding as well.  On this 3 step card, I picked the Vintage Bridal Couple stamp of the Special Moment Collection from Magnolia-licious online store for the card front.  For the inside, I also added the Wedding Tilda and Where is My Bride stamps.  I also found one of the Magnolia Sentiment stamps "Happiness Be Yours" to match the card theme too. The image is colored with Copic Markers with Prismacolor pencils shadowing. I handmade some flowers and cut out some flourish shape using Sizzix dies to go along with the flowers for embellishment. 
Here is my finished card (Front).  As you can see, there are many Magnolia Doohickey die cuts I use too.  The side border is cut from the Doohickey Mistletoe border die.  The "V & J" background is the Vintage Tag,  the handmade flowers from using the Doily Flower dies, and the Leaf and Swirl die as well.

I am using this card for the following challenges:
Fashionista Challenge 17 - Wedding or Birthday
Make It Monday 146 - Anything Goes
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #13 - Anything Goes
Stamp with Fun Challenge 217 - Celebrate
Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge #103 - Wedding

Magnolia Tilda of Sweden Licious Challenge

Good morning everyone. Thank you for stopping by and today is another challenge over at Magnolia-licoius and Wee Stamps Challenge for June and our theme is ''Licious". That means, you can create a project use lace in your project (in paper, embellies, etc).  For this challenge, I created a card using a Stamp from the Magnolia-licious online store. I bought this stamp a while ago and finally got a chance to use it.  This  stamp is called Tilda of Sweden.  I colored it with Copic Markers with Prismacolor pencils shadowing. I also added some Stickle on Tilda's cushion to spark it a little.

Here is my finished card.  I added a piece of lace to the bottom, then weaved a red lacy ribbon into this pattern and made some little red flowers to embellish this card.  Love this Tilda of Sweden stamp and couldn't believe I didn't use her until now???!!
