Hearts and Flowers at Just Magnolia...AND Some SWEET STUFF TOO!!!!
Happy Friday again everyone!!! And welcome to winter wonderland....argh!! The snow that was supposed to begin later this evening started about 5:00 and I now have several inches in my yard...and expecting about a foot OR MORE....somebody please come save me!!!!!!!!
I just couldn't wait to show you my DT card for Just Magnolia where each Friday we have a very exciting challenge blog for only Magnolia stamps!!! Sometimes it is a required sketch but this week we were asked to design a "Hearts and Flowers" card since we are being sponsored by the amazingly wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts – specialists in Mulberry paper roses, paper flowers and craft supplies. Oh My!!! I love that company!!!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting. All of the DP is from Webster's Pages....another favorite company! I selected Loving Tilda from Magnolia-licious, stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics. I placed her inside a MM chipboard frame which I trimmed with green braid from Webster's Pages and old pearl buttons. After machine stitching all panels I added ecru lace from Webster's Pages to the side vertical and decorated the right side of the frame with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, an organza ribbon bow, and a gold Victorian heart button.
For the inside of the card, I used coordinating DP but on the first panel I somewhat altered the DP with gorgeous Stempelglede hearts and swirls which were an amazing gift from the wonderfully talented Christina. Thank you so much, sweetie!!!! The only other thing I did was add the same green trim from the front, another organza bow, and gold heart button!!
Those of you who know me well, know that my very favorite part of the blogging process is making available to you my Sweet Stuff!!! And since my time here is so limited until the phoenix arises out of the ashes...lol...I wanted to make available for you some of the papers and ribbons and flowers that I used this week as well as a couple of additions...hope you like it!!!
