Wild Rose Studio Emily with Dandelion


Good morning everyone!

Boy, it's been a very busy week for me! I need a couple more hours in my day! I hope you visited the Magnolia-licious Blog Hop. I love, love, love the projects that the DT shared! If you haven't seen them, please visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get you started! You will NOT be disappointed!

It's "W"ednesday at Magnolia-licious. I chose to use my Wild Rose Studiostamp called Emily with Dandelion. I thought that stamp was just so sweet. I used to have a little fur baby, Milford, who was pinkish orange. I think the color was apricot. He was such a precious animal. He was very smart, had a great sense of humor, and "talked." He would say, "No" and "Want Out." It was so clear that other people understood him when he would say them! Oh, I could go on and on about him! He was such a joy!

Anyway, back to this sweet stamp, LOL. There were so many things I loved about the stamp. Of course, the first was the fur baby! I loved the sweetness of the image as well as the motion implied by the floating dandelion comas. Emily's dress is just the cutest! Would you like to see my card? OK, here it is:



I love how sweet this image is! I just can't say it enough! I chose to use some bright, cheery colors and keep the design simple so that the focus would be on the image which was watercolored. It's hard to see, but I did line the cloud in the background with Stardust Stickles. Oh, I did mask the Emily with Dandelion Stamp with a Magnolia background stamp from the Chasing Butterflies Collection. It's called Butterfly Background. I liked it because it gave a little depth to the image. I also used my Go Kreate dies for the card shape.The flowers are from my stash as is the velvet ribbon.I used my Magnolia Doohickey #4, Leaf and Swirl Die. It is such a functional die. I use it quite a bit, and it's worth every penny! It gives such a nice effect. The paper is from American Crafts and is from the Shoreline line.

I hope you liked my card! Emily with Dandelion, as well as many other gorgeous stamps, dies, and papers is available at at Magnolia-licious - home of the best prices in town! Diana has fantastic customer service, too! Make sure you also check out the new Zutter Bow-It-All which is available HERE.

XO,
Chris
