Summer or Christmas?

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 3 comments
Such a busy week of posts! It's been a VERY long time since I've posted everyday of the week. If i've made any hiccups I blame it on staying up till midnight doing the posts!

Today there's a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. This week it's a sketch. When I was making this card I was really into it. I love how the papers are strawberry with the new Tilda with a Strawberry. Then Belle, my 8 year old said "Mom, WHY are you making Christmas cards?" So now everytime I look at this card  see Christmas!!!! UGH! It's cute though. Just looks very Christmasy. Oh well!

Have a great day, I'll be back tomorrow with my Just Magnolia post.

Magnolia Mini World Album!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 2 comments
Hello my friends! I have a project to show you that took me forever to make! About 4 days. All the stamps you see here are in Magnolia's Sweet Rainbow Collection. The album spells mini, but with my little oval tags should read Magnolia Mini World. I was going to keep this a surprise but I cannot keep my big ole mouth shut. I've made this for a very dear friend, Diana Crick,  the owner of Magnolia-licious and wholesale distributor of the Magnolia Minis. If you will be going to CHA this little album will be on display there!
I hope you like it Diana!!

I've incorporated Just Magnolia into this project for this weeks challenge. Michelle chose the theme this week and it's Paper Piecing. I've paper pieced the Scarecrow Tilda on the cover and also the Rocking Tilda on the last page. I never do this technique it's really fun and different. I hope you will join us over at Just Magnolia and hAngler this week!

I've also made this for Fussy and Fancy. Our theme is to CASE a DT member. So check out the lovely creations by the design team and let one of them inspire you to create! I hope you will join us over at Fussy and Fancy, too!

Thank you so much for those who have sign up for my Magnolia Copic Class at Color Me Creative. I've had such a great response and I've been chatting with some wonderful ladies! If you are interested in learning how to color with Copics, adding depth in your coloring and creating a scene I really think you would enjoy my class. You don't have to buy the stamps I've used, you can use what you have on hand.

A Father's Day Card!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 4 comments
Well hello again, bet you didn't think I was going to use this stamp so soon. :) LOL! I didn't make them back to back though, it just happens to be that I'm posting them that way. I had to use this stamp on a Fathers Day card. The image is too perfect! Especially cause my dad would always take me fishing as a kid.

This card is for Just Magnolia and hAngler, the theme is Lace. It's also for Fussy and Fancy which is to make a card for Father's Day or for a man. I chose to make one for my dad. He calls me EVERYDAY and is always encouraging me to do what I love with my crafts. I really love the way this card came out.  It's probably the most masculine I can do. I freaked out a little when I saw the challenge even double checked that I was able to put flowers on it. I can't make a card without my Wild Orchid Flowers!!

Well I hope you all have a terrific weekend. Don't forget about my Candy you only have until next week!

Stamps -
Paper - Basic Grey, Copic Xpress Blending card, SU cardstock

Tilda Goes fishing at Cute Card Thursday!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM 5 comments
Hello everyone. Happy Thursday. Today there's a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. The challenge is to embellish your image. I've added pearls to Tilda's overalls. I LOVE this image. She reminds me of me when I was little. I wish I could find the photo I have of me at the lake with my Papa Lee, who passed away 3 years ago at the age of 91. He used to live in Bishop, California. We used to go fishing all the time. So when I look at this stamp it really brings back a ton childhood memories for me. I'm probably going to be using this stamp a lot! :) The background image is an Alota mini stamp. You can find it and a whole bunch of backgrounds at Magnolia-licious. They go perfecty with Magnolia Stamps!

See you tomorrow for Just Magnolia and hAngler and Fussy and Fancy!
