A little birdie told me.....

Hello Lovelies,

Almost the weekend, hope you've had a great week and found time to fit in some stamping.

I made this for a little boy going into to hospital and was under strict instructions to make it bright and cheery without looking girly. Well the bright & cheery was easy but I always struggle wanting to add flowers, bows and sparkle, it always seems to be missing something without them. The little frog hops from card to card.  How cute is that little bird. I chose Edwin with cap as he looks just like our ginger haired little Jake.

Magnolia Stamps: Edwin with Cap, Shabby Chic Fence from Shabby Chic Summer 2008 Collection
Sun from Lazy Summer Day's Collection, Tilda's birds from Magnolia Spring Summer 2008
Copic Markers: Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20, Shirt -YG00, 01, 03, 05, Jeans - B21, B24, Hair - YR23, Y23, E35, Background Airbrushed B41
Martha Stewart Punches - Grass border & Butterfly
All other supplies from stash

Kellie at Tickled Pink Stamps has a huge range of stamps, not just Magnolia Stamps, lots of other crafting goodies and with Mothers Day just around the corner.
I am so excited, almost bursting at the seams, we have lots happening at Tickled Pink Stamps in May, don't miss out, stop by the new blog to check out all the fun.

here is a little sneak peak

Have a great weekend.

Older Style Princess Tilda & the Frog

Happy Saturday Stampers,

Oops, I found this card a few weeks ago, I made it way back in January, then forgot to show you. I know it's way past Valentine's Day, but it work for an Engagement, Anniversary etc. and it fits in with the new Fairies & Princesses coming soon, I thought why not. Kellie from Tickled Pink Stamps got me hooked on some of Magnolia's older style stamps, I would love to give them a try with Distress Inks next time.

Magnolia Stamps - Tilda (Princess Noni from Summer 2006 Sun & Rain Collection). Tilda & Edwin - (SP06 Vi Två from Winter Spring 2006 Collection) & Be My Valentine text (Valentine 2009 Collection).  I used the January sketch from Mojo Monday, coloured the images with Copic Markers, used my favourite Martha Stewart border punch and lots of Star Dust stickes. Papers and crystals from Kaisercraft and cut the card with my Cricut using my favourite Doily Card from Wildcard cartridge and finished it with a little machine stitching. Tilda inside the card is paper pieced to match the sentiment side of the card. A fun card with not much colouring. Inside text is computer generated.

I am working on some cards for the next Magnolia Ink Magazine, so won't have anything new for you for a few days. Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Don't forget Kellie at Tickled Pink Stamp has a sale on this weekend - 15% off all stamps and this includes Magnolia Fairytale Collection listed for pre-order, and the sassy new Kraftin Kimmie stamps.

Arghh Pirates in B & W

Happy Sunday Stampers,

Edited - I kept looking at it, then decided to remove the flowers and add the anker. My DH tells me to leave things alone and move on, but I can't help myself, I do it all the time.

Huge apologies again for being such a bad blogger, so much happening lately between sickness & family. I've misplaced my mojo also, hope it returns soon, I have lots of little Maggies coloured up, hoping to give them a new home very sooooooon. 

Anyways it's time for my favourite challenge
Magnolia Down Under Challenge #41 - Olden Days
We were asked to colour our images in black, white and greys, but still have the option of using coloured paper and cardstock. 

This was a real challenge for me, stepping out of my comfort zone, I guess that's what challenges are all about, I persevered, I've seen some amazing cards using this technique and I hope to master it one day, practice practice practice. Maybe I will give it a go with the softer distress inks.

I got the idea of the Pirate Banner on the top of my card liner from Kim Piggott, Kim used a Magnolia Stamp (I need more accessory stamps) but  had to compromise and cut this out with my Cricut, then hand cut the skull and crossbones from the Magnolia paper, it would have been easier to cut them directly from the paper on the cricut but they all faced different directions. Kim's card is so soft and breathtakingly beautiful.

Also, I thought I take a photo of the card liner before attaching it, I spotted this idea on someones blog, but apologies, I am not sure who. 

My Tickled Pink Stamps DT package from our wonderful Boss Lady Kellie arrived the other day and it was overflowing with some yummy goodies. All of the following items are available from Tickled Pink Stamps.

Of course I wanted to play with the new Pirate stamps Kellie sent, I coloured them up with Copic markers - C00. C0, C1, C2, C4, C7 , C9. Tilda & Edwin were cut out and raised for dimension with pop dots. I distressed the edges of my cardstock, inked them up and added some Star Dust stickles.

Magnolia Stamps - Pirate Tilda, Pirate Edwin - soon to be realeased  from the Pirates, Fairytale and Princess Collection, available for Pre-Order soon here
Patterned Paper - Magnolia's So Spooky Halloween Papers - perfect for the new Pirate Collection - available now here
Charms - Skull & Cross Bone, Red lace - all from Tickled Pink Stamps, Anker cut with my Cricut - Lifes a Beach cartridge.

I have also entered this in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Mono Mania

Personalised Stamps are back by popular demand, pre-order yours now. I've had lots of enquiries from our international blogging friends, well now you too can order one, Kellie will be shipping worldwide,  but for stamps only.

Looking for inspiration, stop by & see what the other Design Team Members have created, they are all amazing! Thanks for joining this wonderful challenge, I can't wait to see what you come up with & hope you will join us next week.

Also look out for the new release of the FairyTale Collection with gorgeous papers, cute Pirates, Little Princesses, and MANY MORE…. Sign up to Tickled Pink Stamps Newsletter to be sure NOT to miss a thing!
