Maggie Highlites, Flower Soft, and a bit of Sweet Stuff!!


Happy Wednesday everyone!!! I hope that everyone is well and having a delightful week! I am absolutely marvelous now that I have finally beaten back the fires that raged from the mean old chemo dragon!! Whew!! He was a bit much this week but we are surviving!!! Smiles!!

I missed the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog hop on Monday but it is certainly not too late to participate. This month the Hop features the Magnolia stamp Right Through My Heart which is 30% off right now at Magnolia-licious. As soon as I saw the cutie, I thought of a Roman gladiator and the lions and therefore my card is made accordingly. I don't know if you have noticed, and I have heard no one mention, but this stamp may just be a real collectible because to the best of my knowledge this is the very first time that Pauline, the designer of Maggies, has used a real human eye for ANY of the Tildas....There have been human type eyes for the Santa folks, several of the animals (including the Lion that I have used today) and for the snow folks...but never for a Tilda!!!! So you better grab her while Diana still has her available!!!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base, gold metallic and PTI for all matting, and the DP is MM. Tilda was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, Pearl Shimmerz, and Gold Stickles. I used a touch of Flower Soft to ground her. I also used Greek key trim, a couple of gold bows and some gold lion buttons to finish the front.



On the inside of the card I used the darling Lion, stamping him on Cryogen White, coloring him with Copics and adding touches of Ultra Fine Flower Soft and Gold Stickles. I think he is just darling, don't you? "Even Lions Can Be Tamed" was computer generated!!! But they can be, right??

The challenge at the Flower Soft Blog today was to use Flower Soft in a different way so I decided to use it to look like ultra-suede or velvet on the top of the little chipboard box. I first painted the entire box with black acrylic paint. Then I covered the bottom of the box with Glossy ModPodge and added the Greek key trim and a gold lion button. For the top I covered it with Flower Soft glue and added Black Ultra Fine Flower Soft to give it a soft matte finish. I finished the outside of the top with black and white roses and a gold bow and the inside with another lion using Blossom Nesties. I hope you will check out the other DT members at Flower Soft to see how they have used this marvelous product:

Deb--Jeanne--Jennifer--Linda--Rose Ann--Vicki



Thank you so much for dropping by today to see what's happening here and I am so appreciative of the many comments and emails I have received from you. To show my happiness in your visit and my thanks for your constant concerns about me, I would like to offer this set and have filled the little box with some black and white flowers for you. If you are interested in this little bit of a surprise please leave a comment before Saturday, April 24, at Noon DST. I hope you will come back often and will have a delightful rest of the week! Big hugs for all!!!

Glenda said...

Congrats on taming your own "lion" Jacque. Your card, as usual, is awesome. I did notice the eye, but have not been adopting Magnolia's for too long, so I did not know it was special in that way. I did know she was special tho. TFS

Pink Heather said...

Gorgeous colours. That gold design really popped out at me. Very sophistacted looking.

ShirleyTACS said...

Jacque, The card looks so Elegant. The Glory that was Rome. Tilda looks like she is ready to exhibit her skills in the field. Thanks. Oh, I loved the use of gold. It topped it off.

Anne said...

A very different card and I like the Greek theming - very striking and just the thing for Tilda. I'm not surprised she has an eye - she wouldn't make much of an archer without one... The buttons are perfect for the card but did remind me of a 'power dressing' jacket I owned in the 80's with shoulder pads an American footballer would have been proud of! lol It was houndstooth with gold lion buttons. Wot was I thinking!! Only now I wish I'd cut them off before it went to the charity shop.... Thanks for the memory and making me smile Jacque xxx

Suzan L said...

Jacque, Your card and matching box came out so gorgeous... very rich looking!! I love the trim that you used along with the lion buttons. And, the box...WOW!! The flower soft is so wonderful on the lid!!

Hi Jacque! Glad you are feeling better and pray that it gets better and better! Wowzer! What a presentation, a beautiful gift! Absolutely stunning! I love the tie in with the gladiator theme of the lions! Thanks for the heads up on the stamp! I hadn't thought about it but the eye is definitely unique for a Tilda or an Edwin! I am going to rush over and get me one! Have a great day!
Hugs,

Another absolutely gorgeous gift box and card set. I love the "key" pattern theme. Stunning! Warmest wishes, Lesley
