Pink Bubbles!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 2 comments
Hello! Hope you all had a great week! I have a card for the Just Magnolia Challenge and for Fussy and Fancy. Over at Just Magnolia there's a fabulos sketch by Bev. At Fussy and Fancy our challenge is Pink and Black! I love the way this card came out. I used my Copics this time. I have been watercoloring so much, I need to alternate so I dont forget how to use my markers! I stamped off the cardstock using the little Emblem from the Wedding Collection. I love the way it looks, sometimes you need a little something else rather than just patterned paper.

Flutter by Wednesday - Anything with Wings

Simon Says stamp - Dotty
Stampavie and More - Black, White and one other color












Supplies

Using Ribbon on your Stamped Images.

Happy Tuesday stamping buddies! I made this card for my Really Reasonable Ribbon Posting. I really love this card. I wanted to do something different with my ribbon so I decided to put actual ribbon on the stamped image. I think it turned out really cute and makes the cupcake pop!

My friend Sherri came over the other day and I was showing her all my new cards I've made. She mentioned how she needed to get a card for her mother in law, I was like HELLO..... pick one! Then decided to make her a new one. I really love the way it turned out, I hope her mother in law loves it too!

Magnolia-licious Blog Hop and Wild Orchid Craft Challenge #2.

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 1:00 AM 0 comments
Hello, thanks for joining me for another Blog Hop for Magnolia-licious! Our Blog Hop theme this month is Nautical. Perfect for those of you who has received the Summer Kit. I haven’t got my stamps from Diana yet, but one of the best things about these Magnolia Stamps, they are all so versatile! This is a background from the Wedding Collection, and the Jolly Pirate from the Fairytale Collection. If you have come from Our newest Design Team Member April’s Blog you are on the right track! Next on the list is Janiel.
This is my first time painting such a large area, this background stamp is gorgeous! I love the big ole sun! I wanted to try a sunset with pink and blues, I think it came out pretty good. I could use a little more practice though. Always room for improvement!
Over at Wild Orchid Craft Challenges this week’s challenge is to use lace. I attached my lace is the center of the lace so the back part could fold up and be a “stopper” for the Easel to stand, instead of using flowers like I normally use. You can get the lace and all these beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I will have a full list below.
Challenges:
Wild Orchid Craft – Lace
Everybody Art – Blue and White
Stampin Royalty – Splish Splash
Paperplay – Blue Cream and another color.














Supplies
Stamps – Romantic Sunset, Jolly Roger Tilda, The Tide Always Turns Sentiment.
Paper – GCD Papers and SU cardstock
Ink – Versafine – Distress Inks and SU colors
Accessories – WOC Lace, WOC 25mm Baby Blue Roses, WOC White Flat Gardenias, WOC 30 mm lilac wild rose, WOC 10mm Lilac rose, WOC 15mm Cream rose, Stampin up Gem Brads, Misc Ribbon and charm.

Just Magnolia goes Vintage and WOC Tutorial!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 9 comments
Hello Ladies, Happy Friday! Here’s my Just Magnolia Card. This weeks theme is Vintage. I hope my card can pass for being Vintage, it looks old fashion .. to me lol.
I also have a Wild Orchid Crafts tutorial for you, I wanted to show you all how I make my flower clusters. Sometimes it’s a little easier to do the cluster this way, that way individual flowers cannot fall off your card and get lost. I’ve had that happen many, many times! lol!!
I also want to share that I have been invited to join the Magnolia Sweden Design Team! I'm really excited. I cannot wait to see my creations in the Magnolia Ink Magazine! I would love it if you would check out My Magnolia Blog, and become a follower!
I hope you find my tutorial helpful. Have a lovely day!
