GDT for Paradise of Magnolia

Hi all

I am here today with a post as Guest Designer at Paradise of Magnolia and the challenge this time is a fave 'Flowers' and we all love our flowers dont we!!


For this card I used 'Tilda binding flowers' she is a kinda boho chic hippy chick to me. I think she looks gorgeous with her long hair and festival ready with her flower hair band.

I used papers from Maja Design 'Vintage Autumn basics' and as I dont really do a lot of purple I thought that this might give me a bit of a challenge. I coloured Tilda in Distress inks and to get the shade I wanted I mixed Aged Mahogany with Wild Violet.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I love these poppies. The brads are from my stash as is the grey lace and the purple ribbon.

The pearl pin is from Noor! Design UK and the metal corner is also from my stash.

Hope you can pop across and join us.

Have a fab week.

the bunny is on his way....

Happy Friday peoples!

Now can you believe Easter is literally just round the corner. Heck this year is speeding by. Today's card is an interactive card, always a lot of fun to make but the best part is seeing peoples faces when they realise that an element moves.

Sooo for this card and with Easter and Spring (autumn here but i still think spring is this time of year lol!) i could not resist using Little Hoppy again. Front and centre this time. He looks so peaceful and happy. I coloured Hoppy with Distress Inks. The papers are from the ever fabulous Pion Design.

Now for the interactive part. This is a super cool die from My Favourite Things Surf and Turf die. This allows you to make things move on the card...so I used it to make Hoppy spring along and over a fence lol. Its such a cool die and I feel this might be getting used a whole lot more- be warned!!!

The die cuts are all from Magnolia bar the ivy die climbing up the side which is from Noor! Design UK as is the 'Happt Spring' die cut.

The lace along the die at the bottom of the card is from my local haberdashery shop.

The flowers are divine and are a mix from Noor!Design UK  and Wild Orchid Crafts.

To finish off I added the new awesome Nuvo crystal drops, just dotted around on the leaves and die cuts and a metal charm of a hummingbird.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Well its been a while since I made this kinda card and I forgot how much fun these are. These are Criss Cross card and can be found at this link.

Now for this card I used two Tilda's one from the new collection 'Will you have dinner with me' Tilda and Sakura Tilda from a collection a few year back. These are both coloured with Distress Inks. The papers, well these are a retro collection from a few years ago from Kaisercraft, called The Lake House. Yes I am a paper hoarder!!!

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The edging on the card is cut from a Magnolia Die.

So the card opens up I used some Velcro so you can stand the card up and see the message when placed in.

The pearl brads are from Kaisercraft.

Hope you have a great week ahead.

So...Im getting a bit more daring with my folds...I must admit it took me a while but now ive got it! and I love these cards! Folds arnt my forte but im really starting to get the hang of them! This is the tutorial link for the Book fold card  .For this card I used two stamps that I have had for a while on the front. I masked Little Hoppy with the Sunflower background both from Magnolia. I coloured both with Distress Inks. On the inside of the the card, I use two of the Tilda's from last years Spring release. They are both gorgeous but I adore Tilda with the dandelions. I dont think you can get any more Springtime/Easter than these popping up all over and the daffodils. Always beautiful around Easter.

The papers...arnt these sunflower papers just beautiful! these are from Pion Designs 'The songbird secret'. The sunflower paper is my fave of the collection.

Now I didnt go crazy on the die front or the embellies what with having such a masked large image on the front. I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added a simple bow....another thing I need to get better at lol...bow-hopeless....to the front and popped a moonstone brad also from Wild Orchid crafts through the centre.

The lace...oh the lace...sigh...is stunning. Both of them are from Noor!Design UK. The ribbon rose lace i just popped on the top.

Hope you have a lovely weekend

Dawning of Spring


Hi!

Ok...so this might be a strange title considering that in Australia we are going into Autumn next but even though I have been here years I still think as this time of year as spring...I know....dont think I will ever not to be honest lol.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy Friday- Anything goes
All about Magnolia Challenge blog- All about your fave colours
Paradise of Stamps challenge blog- Spring
Midweek Magnolias- Bingo- Straight down middle and diagonal from top left

For the card I used a really boho chic Tilda in my mind...she is very floaty with her hair and the flowers in it. I think she is gorgeous and love the feel of this stamp. I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. In the background you can see stamped in Pumice Stone Distress Ink some of the postage stamp images that Magnolia also do.

The papers are from the Pion Design collection 'Songbird Secrets' its a beautiful springtime collection and fast becoming one of my faves from them.

The dies are from Magnolia. I used Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The dream catcher is a new fave addition to my collection. Its from Scrapinic and I love it. The lace is from the beautiful Noor!Design UK.

I edged round the die cuts and the layers of the card with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.

Hope you have a great weekend.
