Hugs and Kisses!

Good day!!  I'm super excited to be sharing this little beauty today!! 

Here is Selfie Tilda from the Hugs and Kisses collection, who I've framed in a chipboard piece from Laserowe Love "Oval Floral Frames" and they come in a set of 2.  With this chipboard, I added Diamond stickles over the whole frame.  You should see it in real life.  It's soooo sparkly and pretty!!  

Since Tilda is holding a phone, I thought I would try to make a cell phone look like it's texting with someone.  I'm still on the fence about how it turned out but the idea was fun.  LOL!!

I've used some shabby seam binding again in 2 places, added some pins and OH!!  The stitched heart chipboard covered with stickles is also from Laserowe Love.  I must say I think this might be one of my recent favorites!

Well thanks so much for stopping by
and have a great week!!

Ruby - Hey There

Good day!!!  This week I've decided to pair up a Polkadoodles image with these gorgeous LemonCraft papers "Grow Old With Me".  They are very vintage feeling and just stunning!!!   In the lower left you can see a super cute Laserowe Love chipboard fence, which I've colored brown with my copics and added a few flowers.  There is also a yellow pearl headed berry there as well as 2 more in my main bouquet.

I colored the image "Ruby - Hey There" with my Prismacolor's and listed the combo's below.  Not a color combination I use often so it was fun to play!

I punched 2 layers of this amazing Magnolia umbrella doohickey and layered a couple of Laserowe Love butterflies.  I colored both of the with my copics but stickled the top peach colored one and popped on a pearl center.  Again I've used a seam binding bow, which I can't seem to get enough of.  The store has quite a selection of colors so there's something for everyone!

Don't forget about our challenge this month of BLING or LACE!  I hope you can join us!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great week!

I bought a package of pre-colored images from Polkadoodles called "Fuzzypuffs" (even the name is CUTE) and had fun with some quicker cards.  I didn't have to color and so that saved me about 8 hours!!  I am really liking this idea!  Maybe a little too much.  LOL!

A hedgehog - awwww!!!!

A writing mouse - hee hee!

A little teddy bear with flowers and mail.  Adorable!!!

I think I can see more of these in my future!!!

Penguin Ray

I love coloring penguins and this one was my favorite only because it meant something to me.   My stepdad has been going through chemo for mantel cell lymphoma but he's been through 5 treatments now and one more to go.  Things have subsided somewhat and now we just wait for the last treatment then I think a scan to see how things are.  Hopefully this has knocked him into remission.  It's what we're all thinking and trying to be positive about.  

This image is "Penguin Ray" from Whimsy Stamps created by Crissy Armstrong.  It couldn't have come at a better time.  💓

A close up of the copic coloring.  

To all those going through or been through this horrible disease, love to all!!

Angel Celeste

Welcome back to another monthly challenge for Magnolia-licious!!   This month we're doing an simple one:


Don't you like these easy ones?  I sure do!!  I love these new papers from LemonCraft "Sense and Sensibility".  There are these lovely blues in the pad as well as some gorgeous peaches.

This stunning Whimsy image is called "Angel Celeste" and is still available in the store.  I've colored her with my copics and added some white dimensional dots in a few places.  

Here is a pretty bouquet just because - hee hee!

I've added a seam binding bow and popped up this gorgeous heart shaped gem. 

And there you have it!  I hope you can join us this month!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Whimsy's Angel Nevaeh

Good day!!  If you are having a long weekend, I certainly hope you're enjoying it!!  This week I've paired up a Whimsy image called "Angel Nevaeh" with some gorgeous papers from LemonCraft called "Grow Old With Me".

I colored this cutie up using my Prismacolor pencil crayons.  Adorbs!!!
(All color combo's listed below)

Here I've used some chipboard from Laserowe Love "Floral Swirls", cut them in half and layered them under each of my bouquets.  I painted them using Adirondack's pearl acrylic paint dabber.

I've layered my burlap butterflies and added a little tiny vial of yellow glitter just for fun!

I hope you've enjoyed my make for this week!

Magnolia-licious Challenge

Good day and welcome back to another Magnolia-licious Challenge and this month it's:

Now, I HATE mine, it's topaz.  Is that really even a color?!!  Well awful it is but I tried!  I found some older Magnolia papers in my stash and started with something subtle.   I didn't overthink it too much, which is good because when I do, it's usually a mess!  LOL!!  

Again I've used this super cute image exclusive to Magnolia-licious and colored her up with Copics, all listed below.  

 I've added my usual pretties and a seam binding bow available in the store.

I added Laserlowe Love's "Set of Butterflies" but used Ranger's thick embossing powder to make them look a bit wet.  

There is my card for the monthly challenge this month.  I hope you can play along and if you don't like your birthstone, who's to prove that whatever one you do use isn't yours?  I'll never tell!!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Some Whimsy Fun

You may have noticed that Magnolia-licious has been expanding into more stamp lines and one of my favorites is Whimsy!!  So today I'm sharing a few cards that aren't quite my style but I still enjoyed making them nonetheless.  FUN!!!  

For my first card I've used Whimsy's "Penguin Poop" clear stamps.  It comes with 4 penguin stamps and quite a few extra sentiments and miscellaneous images.  Oh and the sentiments are hilarious so I knew I had to have this set!

I've used Laserowe Love's - Brick Background and Stitched Heart.  For the bricks I used my black Tim Holtz ink dauber and for the hearts I used my Copics markers.  On the hearts, I added some glossy accents for the shine.  It does make it a little hard to take a photo tho.

I love this Whimsy "Friend" die with the 3 layers.  What a great addition to my growing collection.  ha ha ha!!

My next card uses Whimsy's "Whale of a Time" clear stamp set and one of the sentiments that comes with the set.  Again, a great collection of images and sayings.  I added some chipboard from my stash and added a simple white seam binding bow.

I even got a little more creative and designed a shaker card with this one!  

Thanks for coming by!  I hope you have a great week!!!

Hooray Tilda

Good day!!  I'm back to share another Magnolia-licious card using an image from the recent Hugs and Kisses collection "Hooray Tilda".  She was in stock when I made this card but not at the moment so if you're interested in her, please email Shawn.  There are a number of other images left so get them while they're in stock!  Super cute!  I've also added Molly from the Molly and Milo stamp pack.  Doesn't everyone need a pet?!!!  I think so!!!  hee hee

I've used Maja Design's - Vintage Spring Basics papers, which to me are perfect for a spring card or spring birthday!  Magnolia-licious carries a variety of dies and this was one recently brought in from Whismy - "Happy Word Die".  This die is so versatile isn't it?!  😀  Great addition to your collection.

I've created some pretty foam flowers using White Foamiran and some Pearl Button Flower Centers.  Ok WOW, those centers are so PRETTY!!!     

Along with lots of my pretties I've added a puffy seam binding bow and there is quite a variety of colors available in the store.  

YES!!  MORE MEMORY LIGHTS!  I've colored my image up using a whole lotta Prisma pencil crayons and those are listed below.

I hope you've enjoyed my card this week and stick around as we have a new challenge coming up next week.  You still have time to enter the current easy challenge of "Using Flowers".

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you get to treat yourself to some creative time!

Breakfast at Tilda's

Message from Shawn,

I am very excited to share an exclusive stamp made from Magnolia for the store. This was something that I have always wanted to do for all Magnolia lovers around the world.
The title of the stamp is called "Breakfast at Tildas😊
I thought about creating this stamp and Pauline made it come alive.
I hope you love it and that it would be a wonderful edition to your personal Magnolia collection.
There will also be 3 giveaways over the next 2 weeks this stamp.  If you head over to our Facebook Group, find the post about the new Stamp Set, like it and tag a friend, you will be entered into the draws! You will need to join our Facebook Group to enter our draws.
Spread the word around the world. This stamp should be fun to colour and create wonderful cards and projects.
Cheers, Shawn from Magnolia-licious Rubber Stamps and so much more.
The maple syrup and pancakes really can be anyone’s thing but I also chose to go with a Canadian theme but I will have to admit I wish our flag had more than 2 colors in it.  HA HA HA HA!!  I was lucky to have the perfect papers for it from Maja Design called "Summertime".  

Here is my usual bouquet...ok I may have gone a little over the top on this one but for good reason.  LOL!!  I've used some chalk seam binding that's available in the store as well as soooo many other beautiful colors!  

Here is a close up of Tilda mowing down on her pancakes, which by the way, I LOVE too!!!   Yummay!!!  If you were to ever have breakfast with Tilda, what would you ask her?  I think my question would be what's her secret to always looking so young.  LMBO!!!   

Here are a few burlap butterflies, one with a Tim Holtz nib in the middle.

So there is my contribution for this super cute image!!!  I hope you enjoy all the other projects coming your way this week!!!  I can't wait to see them myself too but I think the DT has some amazing stuff ready!!!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!

Polkadoodles Ruby

For my card today, I started out by picking my papers from Polkadoodles called "Gentle Song".  I love that they really demanded a spring feel to them and I really want that right now!!!  Don't we all?  Our winter seems to have dragged on even after having the first 2 months of winter not even exist!  LOL!!!

I've added my flowers, wax cord bow under all and some Tobacco Brown seam binding from Magnolia-licious.  Isn't that bow charm just the cutest?!  I've been hoarding this in my stash for a rather long time.  ha ha ha ha!!!  Oh come on.  Tell me what you hoard!  GOL!

 Here is Ruby Celebrations from Polkadoodles and I've colored her up using my Prismacolor pencil crayons.  Ridiculously addicting those things!!  Also added a layer of lace and ribbon, along with my burlap butterflies.  Just filled with yumminess!

AND AGAIN WITH MY MEMORY LIGHTS!!  LOVE them!  Because the kraft paper is so thick, I cut the shape of the balloon out, colored some vellum and adhered it to the backside so the light would come through better.  Turned out so cute!

Magnolia-licious has something EXCITING to share next Monday so stay tuned and keep watch on the Magnolia-licious FB group!  I can't keep a secret for long so it's a good thing I don't have to!  Have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sometimes you just need a baby card right?!!  Well Magnolia-licious has those images too!!!  I've added quite a few layers using some papers from LemonCraft called Just Love Me.  Check out the new papers pads from LemonCraft in the store now, Sense and Sensibility and Grow Old With Me.  I can't wait to start playing with these papers!!!  

Aren't balloons a great addition to a celebration?!!  And celebrate new babies we do!!  I've added some pretty Wild Orchid Flowers and also some "Pink Aster" seam binding now available in the store in many different colors!  All I've done to make it shabby, is add some spritz's of water, crumple it up and let it dry.  LOVE IT!!  

This little cutie is called "Adorable Tilda" and also I've colored up "Chubby Baby Feets" using my copics.  I decided to make this a shaker card but .... the beads are a bit too big to shake around much.  LOL!  But that's ok because I do like the end result anyway.

Here I've added more flowers and my new favorite die Love Typewriter.

I hope you like my creation for today!!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!!  And don't forget our challenge for this month of "Favorite Stamp".  You can use any Magnolia's or Polkadoodles and just between us?  Will we REALLY know if you're image is your favorite or not?  Maybe it's your favorite for today, or a favorite from a certain collection....see where I"m going with this?  LOL!

Let's Go Collection

Today I'm back with yet another card using Maja Design papers from the "Summertime" collection.  Annnnnnd I'm still playing with images from the Let's Go collection!!!  Lots of great picks there!!!  I've use some older Magnolia dies and lots of extra's.

I've colored this little scene with my Prismacolor pencil crayons and used the "Taxi and Journey" sentiment and "Let's Go Tilda"!!  I think this was the first time that I've never had a face to color.  LOL!!  

Who still has some Tim Holtz filmstrip lying around?  ME!  LOL!  So I've added that, some Wild Orchid flowers and 2 Magnolia view finder dies but I managed to hide the other one with embellishments.  ha ha ha!

AND TADAAAAAA!!!  I've added a Memory Light and used the Expansion Pack of 2 for a total of 3 lights!!!  These things are so cute!!  Last month I went to buy a card ....  GASP!!!  BUY?!!   Right?  Well I was heading out of town and in a hurry.  The card wasn't anything special and it cost $8.99!!!  😲   That's absurd!!  My point is, the price of these lights seem to be quite reasonable, far cheaper than anything I've used in the past AND they are extremely easy to use!!  I'd rather put the $9 on my own card plus a few extra's from my stash.  Waaaay better I think!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget about this month's challenge of "Favorite Magnolia or Polkadoodles" stamp.  Another easy challenge...ooooooo well it is kind of hard to narrow down a favorite but hey, maybe it's your favorite TODAY and that works too!!  LOL!

March Challenge!!

Welcome back for another Magnolia-licious challenge and this month it's your


Well!!  How in the heck was I EVER going to figure out my all time favorite stamp?!!  I imagine that's somewhat like trying to pick out your favorite kid!!  They would all be my favorite!!  I did quite like "Wine Testing Tilda" from the Recipe Card collection and also "Hello Tilda" from the Hoppy Easter collection.   Oh and don't even get me started on the Christmas images!!!   WAAAYYYY too many!!  But then I got smart about it and decided I would pick my favorite stamp from the new "Let's Go" collection!!  LOL!!  Clever huh?  😁

Oh and I've layered in a Laserlowe Love heart shaped chipboard in the right corner.  So delicate I love it!

So here she is, Wine Relaxing Tilda, which I've paired up with Maja Design - "Enjoying Outdoors", yup again with the Maja papers!  And I can't seem to quit coloring with my prima's either soooooooo ya.  LOL!  All colors are listed below.  

I've added a super gorgeous satin bow, with all the fixin's and a few tassels to finish it off!

Another bouquet of yumminess!!! 

And how stunning is this delicate butterfly?!!  I've layered a white one under the purple with a Tim Holtz nib on top.

Well I hope you can join us this month and how easy is your favorite stamp and the fact that you have a whole month to enter?!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
