Happy Anniversary with the Minis!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 2 comments
Hello friends! I have an Anniversary card to share with you. I made it for Angie and her hubby. :) Anytime I make her something I try to use the deeper rich colors she likes. I am thrilled with the way this came out! I tried a little something different with my sky, mixing some colors to create different looking sunsets. It's really pretty in real life.

I used these new flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts! I've found a new favorite, Sweetheart Blossoms! They are a little smaller than Cherry Blossoms. I LOVE them! These darker toned roses are Wild Orchid's new classic color line, they are so pretty.

This is also my card for Just Magnolia and hAngler. Our theme this week is Buttons, Bows and Bling! I do hope you'll join us!

I have been super busy lately and enjoying every minute of it! I want to thank everyone for always leaving me the sweetest comments. Each and everyone one of them mean a great deal to me! I have a hard time getting around and leaving comments myself so it means a lot when you take a minute to leave me a note!

Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 6 comments
Hello Friends, I hope you had a great Easter! Mine was good! We colored eggs, had an Easter egg hunt, BBQed with a friend of mine and her kids. It was lots of fun!

I have a card for Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge. Our theme is to use white and 2 other colors. I chose pink and green. I think it makes the card look very Spring-ish. I used this Mini Tilda from the You are so Special Collection. I think she's adorable. The mini tree is from Alota Rubber stamps. You can find it and tons of other adorable mini scenes at Magnolia-licious.

Wednesday is Wild Orchid's very first Blog Hop! There's going to be prizes given away at some of the design team members blogs, a grand prize, release of the new vintage roses and inspiration from my wonderful friends and design team members!

Let the Fairy in you fly!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 11:18 AM 5 comments
Hey there everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was good. I just LOVE this card. It just might be my new favorite.  It's pink and has lots of flowers and buttierflies and Tilda is a fairy, what more can you ask for? I masked this mini background 3 times, on each side of her and then on the stop. I think it came out beautiful. That  background stamp is gorgeous and goes perfectly with this TIlda from the Butterfly Dreams Collection.

I have made this card for the Wild Orchid Craft Challenges which is to use Something with Wings. This Tilda jumped out right away! Isn't she just adorable! 

Well I hope you will join us at Wild Orchid Craft Challenge. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Coloring Skies at Make it Crafty!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 3:00 AM 4 comments
Hi there everyone! I just love the way this card came out. The challenge at Make it Crafty this week is Coloring Skies. I wanted a blue-ish purply sky to give the impression of it was a dark and gloomy day and it's clearing out and the rainbow is shinning! Did I accomplish that look? I LOVE the way it came out. I used Copics and I used BV00, V000, B41, B000 and BG0000 all in the sky. Then I used my Stardust Stickles for the shine. This is such a beautiful background from Make it Crafty it's called Rainbow Meadow. I used my Mini Magnolia Lion, I LOVE him!!!  I will be totally honest I had to to go look up lions online to get his color right. I think it's just DARLING!!! I  know what you are all thinking.. "WOW I can't believe she didn't put flowers" I can't believe it either. I didn't want to cover up the paper I think it's PERFECT and I didn't want to cover the image that took me hours to color! The little touch of Flowersoft was just enough, I think.

Anywho.. Have a great weekend. I'm going to be at my Great-Grandmother's 92nd Birthday Party! :)

A Card for a Child.

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 2 comments
Hi there blogging buddies! I've got a card for you today that I think is really cute. I love these Mini Magnolia Stamps. You can do so much with them. The Pet Shop Stamp is from Magnolia-licious but it's a Mini Alota Rubber Stamp. Isn't it sooooo cute with the Tilda's with little animals. I made this card for Fussy and Fancy and Just Magnolia, as I normally do. :) Fussy and Fancy's theme for this challenge is make a card for a kid. I started out with it being really kid-ish but I guess it's not so much with all the flowers.. Belle my 9 year old really liked it though. As for Just Magnolia we have a sketch for you. I hope you will be able to join us for the challenges.

Have a great weekend. I'll be back for Make it Crafty tomorrow and I just LOVE my card I cannot wait to show it to you all!!!
