Tennis Anyone?

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 11:59 AM 0 comments
Howdy y'all! I have the 'Woody's RoundUp' song in my head.. :)

Today is Friday and time for a new challenge over at Just Magnolia and hAngler ans Fussy and Fancy! I LOVE this Tennis Tilda from Magnolia-licious. She's so much fun to color and add shadows to. I love when Pauline draws Tilda in anything other than a straight view, although I do love those too! This Tilda is from the new Collection Winner Takes All, which is now available in Mini's over at Magnolia-licious! Oh the possiblities, I cannot wait for mine!

 The challenge over at Just Magnolia and hAngler is BINGO and I've chosen the line Gems, Flowers, Ribbon/Lace. The Challenge over at Fussy and Fancy is a sketch, like always I've combined them.

Angie gave me this paper pad when I was at her house. It's a gorgeous pad! I've got to get more of this companies paper, the patterns are beautiful! I didn't have any black or gray roses so I used my Marianne Creatables Die, from Love to Stamp, and made these beautiful roses. I put a black pearl in the center to finish it off.

Thanks for visiting me today, have a wonderful weekend. I hope you will join us at Just Magnolia and hAngler and Fussy and Fancy.

Happy Birthday Diana!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 10:18 AM 1 comments
Today the Magnolia-licious Design Team has put together a hop in celebration of the one an only AMAZING Diana. Her Birthday is on August 24th! So I'm sending GREAT BIG Happy Birthday to you Diana. I hope you like what I've made for you. I was supposed to "bring" the banner/streammers but I descided to make them instead! I used quite a few stamps from the new Winner Takes All Collection. This collection is great, you can make your cards simple or dress them up. Either way works well! I used My Mind's Eye Papers called Life of the Party available at Love to Stamp. My flowers and embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as always!

I REALLY love the way this came out, Diana! I hope you do too!

If you have come from Suzanne's Blog, you're on the right track. If not please start at the beginning, over on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog.

Sweet, Soccer Edwin!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 11:13 AM 0 comments
Hi there all my friends out in blogging land! Hope you all had a great week. I got my amazing Magnolia-licious DT package with the new Winner Takes All Collection. I really like how different these stamps are. I think there's a lot of you who are a little intimidated by this collection since it's not the regular frilly girly stuff. I hope to change your mind with that though. :) I've got lots of ideas to share. Today I'm using Soccer Edwin, I rarely make Edwin cards but this guy is adorable! I used some random soccer paper, Diana has some of the Winner Takes All paper packets over at Magnolia-licious. I really need to get some, these papers can really make your images pop! The other paper I used is sold at Love to Stamp, it's called Out of Print and it's by Basic Grey. It's EXTREMELY hard to tell online but this paper is GORGEOUS! I love it. Angie has all paper pads at Love to Stamp for 4.50 or lower! You sould run right over and stock up!

The new challenge over at Just Magnolia and hAngler this week is to use a funny or different sentiment. I couldn't resist using my new Whimsy School Yard Fun Sentiments.

The new Chocolate Dreams Magnolia Ink out for pre-order. I haven't seen it yet, but I made some projects I'm VERY excited about for this magazine. I hope you will get the magazine and check them out along with fellow Design Team friends projects.

I will be back next week. I have some exciting posts and projects to share!

Monochrome Challenge at TOMIC!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 3:00 AM 0 comments
Today I have a card to share for TOMIC! Our challenge is Monochrome. I decided to use browns. This was the first card I made since returning from my visit with Angie (thank you again for such a wonderful time). Her work is truly amazing, I just loved seeing all her cards in person. She really inspired me to pull out my Distress Inks when I came home. It's been about a year since I've painted with them. Don't you just love when you haven't used something, then when you pull it out it's brand new all over again! :)
Well I hope you can join us at TOMIC this week!

If you haven't already you can now order your Chocolate Dreams Magnolia Ink!

Summer Fun!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 9:21 PM 0 comments
Happy Friday to all my lovely bloggin' buddies! I have a card for Just Magnolia and hAngler. I LOVE the way it came out. The theme is Holiday. I chose to do a Summer Holiday card. I love the big ole ice cream, I used a blade to cut around her thumb to make her look like she's holding the ice cream. I love these colors too. I really enjoyed making this card and I feel like I've redeemed myself from my last weeks card. :)

I hope you will join us over a Just Magnolia and hAngler this week!
