MDUC - Tic Tac toe

Hello friends, 
I am finally back with a new card. A Christmas card for MDUC who has a new challenge today - a Tic Tac Toe board with a twist - ready for the holiday season. 



I have masked together two older stamps, this adorable moose from the Turning Leaves collection... 2012 I think it was and the adorable fence from a very early collection.... I can't recall exactly which year it was but always a goodie for a scene. 

All of the embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl - lovely! 

The papers are Maja Design - ohh how I love these papers, they were a gift last year and I've been putting them to good use each chance I get. 


The scene was stamped using Zoe's no lines technique, doesn't it give such a nice soft result. 

I hope you get along to play at MDUC this week! Tilda's Town are sponsoring with a fabby voucher to give away. 

I will be back on the weekend with another card to share :) 
I have my new craft room half set up so I feel inspired to colour and create! Mind you I've just tonight unpacked my Big Shot and am yet to locate the cutting matts..... hence no die cuts on my card!  I best get back to searching I think. 

Until later, 
Hugs xx

Ribbon Girl Card Challennge - Christmas

Hi friends,
Time for the next card challenge at The Ribbon Girl challenge - this month we're looking for Christmas!


I have used:  Berries Red Shiny Bunch 10, Holly Leaves Tiny (charm), Chrysanth White Kort & Godt, 10mm Double Row Ivory Pearl Trim, 10 metres Bakers Twine Red & White, 5g pack Holly Berry Red Dewdrops, Winter Cones Frosted Brown, White teeny tiny Pom Pom trim - all available at The Ribbon Girls!


My card showcases a cute little "Write a message Tilda" which isn't actually from a Christmas collection at all, but I thought she was versatile enough to colour up nice and festive. 


The card is a Shaddow Box Card, if you want to have a go at making one yourself there is a tutorial HERE


I would like to enter some challenges myself:


I hope to be back with another card soon, until then, take care xx

Better late than never

Good morning all, 
I've been trying to get back to this card all week long. I actually began colouring over a week ago and it was intended for MDUC's current challenge - Pink, Yellow, Lace and Pearls but will have to serve as a mid challenge reminder instead. 


The stamps are all from the new stamp club but in the usual Magnolia style, they are so versatile they can be used for any occassion, so I've made a girly card instead.  The new stamps are so pretty. It is a friend's birthday this week so I thought she would like a pretty girly card. 

The ribbons, pearls and flowers are all from The Ribbon Girl.


Wee Tilda is coloured with Copics as usual. 

I'd like to invite you to come and join MDUC's challenge, there is another week until it concludes. 

I would also like to enter:
TFMC - BINGO (Flowers, Dies, Anything but Square and also Label, Die, Ribbon and Lace)
Midweek Magnolia - Anything Goes

I'll be back soon with some more cards made with these adorable new stamps

The Ribbon Girls Card challenge - Glitz and Dazzle

I promised I'd be back and here I am. The Ribbon Girl challenge is looking for Glitz and Dazzle this week from the Card Challenge team :)




I've masked together two of the cutie Magnolia puppies, Wilma from an earlier collection and little Viola from the Little London collection, the just look too adorable together. I've coloured them with Copics in black and white. 


The Ribbon Girl goodies I've used are - Diamante flower stick pin clear, clear crystal Zva small symmetrical flourishes, 5mm crystal bead string, 5mm clear crystal self adhesive, brown 2 tone 30 mm roses, Ballerina Tu Tu tuille ribbon, 38mm pale pink faux silk ribbon, 15mm pale pink crystal and diamante embellishment



I've "fussy cut" into some lovely paper that had the prettiest rose pattern on it as well. I have a hard time cutting into pretty papers, I tend to save them haha. 
I hope you get a chance to come and join in at The Ribbon Girl card challenge, there are two great prizes up for grabs, one from Lili of the Valley and one from The Ribbon Girls themselves. 

I hope to be back again this week with another card! Yep, my poor Copics are getting some attention :) 
Until then - have a great week 
Hugs x
