January Magnolia-licious Challenge

Wow wasn't that an incredible break!!  I'm refreshed and ready to share more makes with you so on to this month's challenge:

WOO HOO so easy!!!

I started with picking some fun colored papers from Maja Design's "Celebration" collection and cutting each level with Polkadoodles "Fanciful Nested Circles".  As usual I have lots of flowers and little extra's but one of them is Laserowe Love's stars.  I colored them white with 2 coats of Tim Holtz's white dauber.

This week I've used "Star Tilda" from Le Cirque collection.  It's amazing how you can use some of the images and for any day occasions, so I thought I would create a new year's card but it could also be a birthday card or any celebration!

I wish all of you a wonderful new year and I hope that if you haven't gotten much of a chance to get into your craft room this past year, make yourself some kind of new year's resolution to fix that.  You deserve time to yourself!!

I have entered my card into Magnolia Forever's challenge:
Anything Goes

Winnie Lighting the Way

Today I'm back to share a Polkadoodles image AND some gorgeous papers from Maja Design called "Christmas Season".  OH MY!!  It is STUNNING and there are still some 6" x 6" paper pads left in the store!!

I've colored up Polkadoodles "Winnie Lighting the Way" using my Copics and YES she is still in the store as well as some extremely popular restocks of the "Winnie Heavenly" line.

Here is a die cut from one of the older Doohickey kits - the stocking.  SO CUTE!  There are some Doohickey kits currently available for pre-order in the store so check those out.  😀

My usual fun bouquet!!!  

And another one.  Ever wonder what to do with chipboard?  There are some nice pieces in the store from Laserowe Love and Scrapiniec which I LOVE using to layer on my cards.  For both pieces showed here, I've colored each with some white paint first, then I used my glue pen and adhered some glitter to get a pretty sparkly look.   Very simple!!!


Don't forget about our monthly challenge of "Stars and/or Hearts" for this month.  I even managed to squeak in some stars with my border die.  hee hee!!!

I'm entering my card in Polkadoodles challenge:
"Anything Goes"

Thanks for coming by and if I don't get back again,

Polkadoodles "December Winnie"

Hello there!  I'm sorry but I just can't break away from these luscious Polkadoodles but I promise I'll soon be back with a Maggie card.  hee hee  Some of these images are quite large so you definitely get your money's worth!   They do take a bit to color up but I love that....it's my escape!!!  😊

I'm so excited to have used Maja Design's latest collection "Christmas Season".  There are some 6" x 6" pads in the store and if you haven't had a chance to play with their papers yet, DO IT!!  They are made with a nice heavy weight and have such beautiful designs you can mix and match with no problem!!

I've colored up "December Winnie" using my Prisma colored pencil crayons.  You can see more of the selection of images in the store HERE and right now there are some popular ones on preorder, so if you missed any, check it out.  

I added a few wood hearts to fit in with the Magnolia-licious challenge for the month
See how easy that was to be able to enter?  hee hee

So many goodies in my bouquet here and the red berries were available in the store but check out the others as well.

Winnie Heavenly - Angelic

Back again to share this months Magnolia-licious challenge:

Pretty easy right?  Well I have all kinds of hearts everywhere and even a tin star!  I started with some gorgeous papers from Lemon Craft "Yuletide".  As you can see I've nestled my image in a few layers of Polkadoodles dies, which are currently on preorder so coming to the shop soon!

Again I've used my Prismacolor pencil crayons on kraft paper to color up this super cute image from Polkadoodles new Winnie Heavenly line called "Angelic".  They too are on preorder so make sure to get yours if you're still looking!!  

I've created this poinsettia using Whimy's "Lily Flower" die set.  Tricky hey?  LOL!  I didn't feel like buying a whole bunch of poinsettia dies so made this work instead.  I've also added some gorgeous stamens and adhered red glitter to all the edges.

My usual bouquet filled with another star, some miniature pin cones, Wild Orchid flowers and berries.

I hope you'll join in on our challenge this month!! 

I'd like to enter my card in the Polkadoodles challenge:

Polkadoodles Winnine Heavenly

This week I'm sharing one of the most recent images from the Polkadoodles "Winnie Heavenly" line.  I've used some gorgeous papers from LemonCraft and there is a 6-double sided Yuletide pack and a 12-double sided Yuletide pack and they have similar colors so I used one from each pack.  

I've also added some super cute metal corners that are available in the store.

I have just recently learned how to color using Prisma colored pencil crayons.  OH MY GOODNESS how did I not know about these sooner??!!  LOL!!  So this little Winnie is called "Wrap It up" and at the time of my post, they are on preorder but hopefully by now she will be back in the store.  

I used an older Magnolia wing set die to create this little piece.  I adhered double-sided tape to some vellum, stripped off the backing and then dipped them into some glitter.  Pretty huh?!!

As as usual I've added a flower bouquet and some extra's.  You can also find the rusty bells in the store.  LOVE THEM!!!

There we go another share for the week!!  I hope you've enjoyed and been inspired with my Christmas card!  

Enjoy the rest of you week!

Polkadoodles - Winnie Decorating the Tree

Welcome back!!  Today I'm here to share a super cute image from Polkadoodles because as you may have noticed, Magnolia-licious is now carrying Polkadoodles products.  YAY!!!  What a great addition!!  I decided to make a shaped card and I've used paper from Polkadoodles "Heartfelt Christnas" 8 x 8 pack.  The papers are so nice and you get 5 sheets of 12 designs so now you don't have to hoard your stash.  LOL!!

This sweet little image is "Winnie Decorating the Tree" and I've used copics to color her up. 

I've layered this die cut from Rox Stamp and added some Stickles to make the hearts pop a bit.  The Laserowe Love chipboard stars were colored using copics first and then I added some gold Stickles to those as well.

This tree is a Polkadoodles die called "Layering Trees" and I've added some mini lights to top it off.  Too bad I couldn't add some LED lights to those!  I'd be all over that!  LOL!

And here is an up close pic just so you can see the cute little pom pom I added to the kitty's hat.  hee hee!!  

Lovely to have you back!  Have a wonderful weekend!
