Sweet Bella with Flowers at Magnolia-licious!

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Wednesday to each of you! Have you seen the new Magnolia Lovely Duo Collection? Oh, they are too cute! I am so in love with "Stop in the Name...!" Diana has them available for pre order right now! You can find them HERE. I love that you get a cute little sentiment with the Tilda image. Remember, Diana has great pricing AND you get bonus points, too!

Today is "W"ednesday, and I thought I'd share a Wild Rose Studio stamp entitled "Bella with Flowers." I really love these little Bella stamps! The images are just adorable. If you like the image, you can find it HERE. Here is my card:

I used my distress inks to color the image. The flowers do have a sparkle to them which is not visible in the photo. The rest is pretty much self-explanatory, LOL. Here is a shot from the side:

I like the look of the elevated image panel. OK, I like lots of things popped up! LOL

If you have any questions, just ask!

I am so glad that you stopped by. I hope you will return again very soon!

Love is in the Air with Sweet Christmas Tilda

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Tuesday to each of you! Are you keeping warm? I love Winter so much that I hate to see it pass. I love the blue, blue sky and the lighting the sun gives to the mountains. In the summer, the colors tend to get washed out!

Magnolia-licious is now taking pre orders for Magnolia's newest collection, Lovely Duo! If you haven't seen it yet, visit Diana's shop where they are posted. They are so adorable and come with a sentiment. I have some favorites, almost all of them! Preorder them now so you don't miss out!

Today begins a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! The title for our new challenge is ~

Love is in the Air!

Isn't that a great challenge idea? You could do so much with it! I chose to stay with a Winter theme - after all, love does keep one warm, right? Here is my inspiration card:

I wish you could see the sparkle on this card! I used silver metallic thread for the stitching and shaved ice on the Magnolia Doohickey Snowy Forest tree die. My stamp is Sweet Christmas Tilda from 2011's Sweet Christmas Collection. The paper used comes from a paper pad entitled "Frozen." You can find this gorgeous paper HERE. Here are some additional shots:

The tag used in the pocket is the Magnolia So Wrapped Snowflake Doohickey Tag Die. I love that set of dies. They are so versatile!

The die cuts are part of the Memory Box Frostyville line. I added some Crystal Stickles to them for additional sparkle.

I hope you found some inspiration in my design and that you will join the new challenge! We'd love to see your creations! Don't forget that there is a special somethin' somethin' for one lucky commentor!

I am so glad that you stopped by. I hope you will return again very soon!

Princess Tilda as Elsa in Frozen!

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy 2015 to Each of You!

I hope that your 2015 is filled with much joy, love, health, and happiness! XOXO to all!

We had a cold start to the New Year with a wonderful treat of snow on New Year's Eve. What a great way to end 2014! I hope that 2015 will be kind to my family.

Today begins a new challenge at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog! The new challenge is

Use a Tag!

I am anxious to share my card with you. I am really into finding different ways to use my Tilda images. For this card, I've chosen to go with the Frozen theme. Here it is:

Do you like it? I LOVE it! I wish you could see the sparkle. I've used silver thread for the stitching. The white rid-rack is also sparkly. Then, the Magnolia castle doohickey die cut has glitter as does the large snowflake behind the flower cluster. For my tag, I used a Magnolia doohickey tag die and just turned it upside down so the snowflake top didn't compete with Tilda. The little Elsa embellishment has rhinestones around it. The charm hanging from the flower cluster is a crown that says, "Princess." I used gesso on the tiny pine cones. The paper - oh, the paper - I wish you could see it in person. It is absolutely gorgeous! It is called "Frozen" and may be purchased HERE You wouldn't believe the beautiful details in the paper designs. The colors in the pad are soft and bold. They range from pastel to dark!

Here are some additional photos:

Well, if you have any questions, just ask!
