Week 60 – In the garden at Just Magnolia and a Whiff of Joy City Girls sneak peek

This week the challenge at Just Magnolia is “in the garden” so plenty of scope for you all to go wild with your favourite floral embellishments. This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Paul and Siri from Wild Orchid Crafts – just check out this prize!!!!!!!!!!!

I have made another easel card – I think easel cards and Magnolia stamps are the perfect combo lol.

I was a brave girl and used some more of that gorgeous Websters Pages papers, oh I just love these (best order some more in lol). The image is from the new Magnolia release that I got from Bunny Zoe’s. I used glittered tulle that I got from Tabbycrafts yonks ago and also did some stitching around the border of the card. I applied gold stickles to the flowers and butterfly on the paper and stardust stickles to the punched butterflies, her petticoat and her socks.

I received these new peach cherry blossoms and Classic Sweet Roses in my new DT kit from Wild Orchid Crafts and just had to use them, they are stunning!! I coloured the image with distress inks – the colours used are:
Hair – walnut stain, black soot
Dress, shoes and flower – a mix of spun sugar, victorian velvet and wild honey
Leaves – shabby shutters and bundled sage
Skin – tattered rose and aged mahogany

And now for my sneak peek – this card was such a rush as I got the dates mixed up and thought I had till next week – I realised this at 9 o’clock last night!!

I coloured the image (I think her name may be Willow with Coffee) with distress inks. The papers are MME from a pad I got a good few years ago now. I had to sneak in some more of my new peach flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and used a Bosskut flourish for the leaves. The 25mm organza ribbon is also from Wild Orchid Crafts. It just goes to show that flowers and ribbons even work with these gorgeous trendy images.

Phew, if you’re still with me I’m impressed cos I haven’t half waffled on today lol. By the time you read this I will be on the train heading down south – I will give you the results as soon as I can – keep those fingers and toes crossed please :D

Thanks so much for stopping by

  11. Hi Bev
    loved both cards, love the flowers from wild orchid crafts. You should have said you were heading down south, you could have come and had a cup of tea/coffe or something a little stronger lol at my house. My fingers & toes are numb from keeping them crossed for you, so let me know when it's safe to uncross them, cant wait to hear the good news.
