Just Magnolia Challenge - my sketch

TGIF!! What a week!! When I walked back into the office on Friday from two weeks off work I walked into two weeks work that had not been touched so had to catch that all up as well as do my normal day to day work - I so NEED a lottery win lol.

Anyhoo, it's Just Magnolia day again and seeing as I am well in to the Christmas card frenzy I've made a Christmas card and no surprises - it's another easel card. It's my sketch we're working to this week, another nice and simple one, just like me lol.

sketch

I have used last year's Magnolia Christmas papers on this card, I love the touch of beige mixed in with the aqua. I've used Unwrapped Tilda - she was my favourite of all last years Magnolia Christmas stamps.

magnolia-unwrap-tilda1

I have coloured the image with Copics and the colours used are:
Skin: E21, E01, E00, E000
Clothes: BG93, BG13, BG11, BG10, E31, E30
Hair: E55, E53, E51, E50
Present: E35, E33, E31 E51, E50
Shadow: W3, W1, W0

I used the gorgeous Guipure lace from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the beautiful flowers 15mm roses and 30mm Wild Rose which I popped on top of punched (Martha Stewart) snowflakes that I coated with Stardust Stickles.

The sentiment stamp is also from Magnolia (again last year's Xmas stamps.

All Wrapped Up

Isn't this little sweetie so cute All Wrapped Up although I wish now I hadn't coloured her in red :(  The papers are from last year  and are Kaiser I think.  I am so over last years Christmas papers now lol. Just wish the new papers would hurry up and be released.  

lotv-all-wrapped-up

I have followed the sketch on Sweet Stop Sketches although I did tweak again by adding the flowers and using a charm for the sentiment.  I picked these charms up last year and have not seen them again - if anyone spots any please let me know.  The Poinsettias have been coated with twinklets and I added Stardust Stickles to the edges although it's not showing up in the pic.

I am dashing off to work now, have a great day .... and remember tomorrow is Friday woohoo!!

Whiff of Joy - Challenge and little tutorial for the Inspirations blog

Our challenge this week at Whiff of Joy challenge is Fuzz.  Now when I first saw the theme my lil old heart thunked right down to my boots, but I really did enjoy making this card and after seeing the creations done by the rest of the DT I'm guessing they did too.

woj-willow-stocking-fuzz

The paper is from the new Christmas digi kits from Bearly Mine Designs.  I love the icy blue colour that I got after fiddling with the settings in Photoshop.  I applied Fun Flock cotton ball white to the "fur" on her coat, scarf, hat and stocking after shading with Copics.  You can see the texture better in this photo.

woj-willow-stocking-fuzz1

I coated the Poinsettias with Twinklets and have done a little tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Tutorials and Inspirations blog

Well .... it's not a tutorial, just a couple of pics showing how I pull the flowers apart then put them back together again rofl.

The sentiment stamp is from Clever Cut.

Stampavie Challenge

Before I get on to today's card I thought I would just mention that Donna has 3 new sets of Digi Papers out - Grunge Days, Christmas Delight and Christmas Joy.  I have used one of the Christmas sets on my card for tomorrow (now that's a give-away isn't it lol).

The challenge this time on Stampavie Challenges is summer/Hot.  So I dug out some Stampin Up papers (that have been discontinued!!  WHY would they want to do that???) And I inked up Daisy Chain and coloured it with Copics.

stampavie-daisy-chain

I have used the delish MME La Paperie papers that I managed at last to track down. I have tried everywhere to get them, we don't have The Range anywhere near so had to beg steal and borrow to get a pad lol. And it was worth the effort, it's totally gorgeous! I stamped the flourish and dotty stamp from Stempelglede Grunge Flourish Hearts from Quixotic Paperie on the pink papers.

Update and thank you

I just wanted to thank all that left comments and emailed me about the problem I had with plagiarism last week. I was overwhelmed by the amount of support I received, you are just the best!

The problem has now been resolved, the company concerned has removed the photos of my copied work and although retrospective permission was sought by them I refused, given what had happened. Hopefully this will not happen again.

So a big, big thank you xxx

Thanks for stopping by,

I love my Copics!! Bet you never thought I would say that did you lol.

Although I have been dabbling with Promarkers and like them just as much. The card is for this weeks Create4Fun Challenge - use flowers on your card/project. How easy is that!!

I also distressed the paper doily and the flowers. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and are: Curly Wild Roses, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, and the little pearl hearts were added as well.

Just Magnolia - Vintage

We have a vintage theme this week for Just Magnolia challenge. I had to pull the card to bits yesterday as I was not happy with it, so was franticly trying to get it finished before the light faded yesterday afternoon. The things we do for our craft lol.

magnolia-tulip-tilda3

I received my new DT kit from Wild Orchid Crafts and oh my goodness, the new cream Guipure lace and the new pearls are just divine and had to go on the card right away lol. The colours of the pearls are gorgeous and they come in a great range of colours in two sizes.

magnolia-tulip-tilda4

I coloured Tilda with Copics and Promarkers. For the Dress, scarf and shoes I laid the Copics down first then the Promarkers over the top. They blended together beautifully and I love the result! The hair I laid the Promarkers down first then darkened with the Copics. I don't have many Promarkers so am having to use them both together.

Colours used:
Hair: (PM's first) Walnut (O124), Chestnut (R934) , Almond (O819) - (Copics) E49
Skin: all Copics E11, E01, E00, E000
Dress, scarf, shoes and flowers: (Copics first) YR02, YR01, YR00 then over with PM's Burnt Orange (R946) and Ginger (O136)
Leaves: (Copics) G24, G21
Socks: (PM) Buttercup (V417) and blender to remove a bit of the colour

magnolia-tulip-tilda2
I distressed the Elegant Heart stamp with Walnut Stain distress ink and Diamond Stickles. I used a Bazzill Bling Template to make the pearl swirls.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the flowers I used are: 2 tone peach Classic Sweet Rose, green and peach cherry blossoms, peach 10mm roses, and peach 6mm closed rosebuds. The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart branch punch.

magnolia-tulip-tilda1

You still with me???? If so you need a medal or I need the Pulitzer prize rofl. Last bit now. The scroll is also a Magnolia stamp as is the swirls stamped around the edges. I think they are both from the wedding collection but could be wrong and am so sick of this long post now I can't be bothered to go hunt out the links.

Right that's it from me for today, sorry to bore you all to tears lol.
