Magnolia Easter Cards

Good afternoon to all my lovely blogging friends....hope you are having a fabulous day!!! I've been busy working on Easter cards , managing to finish four Magnolia cards. The first card features Bunny Tilda from the 2010 collection. She is sitting on a computer generated sentiment circle.

My next card features a cute Magnolia bunny also from the 2010 collection. The papers are also from Magnolia.

My third card is a scene card featuring Edwin....Edwin, the background stamp and the bunny are all from the 2010 collection. Papers are from Magnolia.

My final card features Drip-drop Tilda on Pion Design papers. The lovely lace is from my stash and the lovely flower was a gift from a dear friend.

My first Magnolia Canvas

Good afternoon everyone! I just finished this project and I wanted to share it with you. I wanted to create a canvas/collage for my daughter, depicting her work and her interests. I wanted to include a clef with a bit of musical tape by Tim Holtz, but, alas, no room! I also utilized my Stampscapes stamps. The sentiment was a gift from the lovely Miss Sandy, whom we all know and love! I wasn't sure it was blogworthy and I sure would love to know what you think!

I'd like to show you a couple of 8x10 Stampscapes scenery artwork....used to do a lot of scenery stamping until I discovered Maggies. I have several on my craft room wall.

Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment. Love and hugs, Christina

Magnolia Easter Cards

Good afternoon to all my crafting friends. I've been offline for quite a while and have purchased a new computer. It will be a while until I feel comfortable again...LOL! I've been trying to figure out how to crop my pictures on this new computer and after online consulting, it worked! Of course, when I tried to do it again, IT DID NOT WORK! After trying for a couple of hours and not wanting to embarrass myself again by calling for help, I was finally able to crop the pictures. I guess persistence works.....hahahahaha

My card features one of the special Magnolia stamps called "Drip Drop Tilda". She is so adorable and I am very grateful to a wonderful friend for sending me this sweet stamp. The papers are from my stash and you will notice a Joy Crafts and a Memory Box die behind the image. Tilda, of course, is colored with copics.

My next card features one of the lovely images from the new Easter Collection. The beautiful papers were a gift from a dear friend and I use them very sparingly because I love them so much. Tilda is colored with copics and the lovely spring border is from Memory Box.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I appreciate it so much and I will get around to visiting all of you now that I'm back online. Big Hugs, Christina

Tilda with Heart Arrows

Good morning to all my fabulous friends....hope your week is going well! This is my final card for Valentine. I am featuring the adorable Tilda with heart arrows from the Love Collection. As you can see, I wanted to get a little creative with this card. I'm getting brave and experimenting with more mediums....attempting to expand my horizons. I love living in the country, but, unfortunately, it does not afford me the possibilities of attending workshops on mixed media. This is definitely something I will pursue when I'm retired, even if I have to travel to do it!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I appreciate it very much. Big Hugs, Christina

Two More Magnolia Valentine Cards

Good evening everyone! I haven't been able to get out of the house or use the computer today due to inclement and snow! Therefore, I was able to spend some time in the craft room. I made two more Valentine cards, avoiding flowers, to make mailing easier and less costly. The first card features the lovely Tilda with big tulips from the current Love Collection. She is colored with copics and showcased on my favorite papers....BoBunny's Jazzmine Collection.

My next card features Lonely Tilda with her heart,also from the Love Collection. She is also colored with copics and all the papers and die cuts on this card are by Magnolia. The lovely rose ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Hugs, Christina

Charming Edwin and another Bildmalarna

Good afternoon to all my lovely blogging friends....hope you are having a splendid day! This cutie is from an additional order I just received yesterday and, of course, I had to ink him up asap! He is from the fabulous "Love Collection" and he is showcased on BG's "Kissing Booth" collection and colored with copics. Lots of Stickles also! The frame is a "Marianne's Creatables" die.

I also created another birthday card with a lovely Bildmalarna image. The violin is my favorite instrument, so, of course, this image appealed to me. The papers I used are from Authentique's "Lovely" collection. Of course, the wonderful tree is a Tim Holtz die.

Thank you so much for taking precious time out of your busy schedule to visit my humble blog. I so appreciate your visits. My son is here today, so I'm enjoying his company as I don't see much of him. Enjoy your day!

A Bildmalarna Valentine

Good morning and a very happy weekend to everyone! I'd like to share a card with you that I made for Valentine's Day using one of the new adorable Bildmalarna images. I colored her with copics and showcased her on papers from BG's Kissing Booth collection. Instead of flowers, which are bulky to mail, I decided to decorate with swirl dies from Tim Holtz using brown glitter paper.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I always appreciate your visits. Hugs, Christina
