One of my new Elisabeth Bell stamps

hi everybody,  I hope the suns shining wherever you are and that summer has finally arrived yippee :-)  I made this card this morning using one of the new Elisabeth Bell Stamps I got from Lisa at That Craft Place I think its sooo cute and a joy to colour.

I coloured her using my promarkers and Tim Holtz Distress Inks, I added some Flower soft to the vines around the wishing well for a little added dimension. I have used Dovecraft Tea Party Papers 6x6 pad  &  Bazzill Basics. I have added some Diamond Stickles to  the mulberry roses, rose buds, lily and white heather spike and they  are all from  . The pearls are White Cosmic Shimmer Liquid Pearls and they were also from where Lisa has a variety of other colours availabl. The ribbon, ivory lace and metal charms were from my own little crafty stash. 

I'm now going to go and have a play with one of the other new Elisabeth Bell stamps which is just as yummy as this one. If you like her too why not pop over to Lisa's lovely shop   where you will find this gorgeous stamp and a whole host of other crafting goodies.

Hi everyone, I've finally been able to get some crafting now that the decorating is done at last*huge sigh of relief* and things are now starting to look a lot more organised. :-) 

 For this card I have used Longing Tilda  from the Fairytale Collection, which I have coloured using promarkers and flexmarkers, I have also give her a little dusting of Glamour Dust for that little extra sparkle. 


The papers I have used are Nit Wit Digi papers and I have also used Bazzill Basics, a small Doily, Martha Stewart Punches, Bias Binding for the bow, the mulberry paper blooms, roses, jute ribbon and crown pearl pin are all from Wild orchid Craft.

The large Butterfly was made using a Marianne die, rainbow card and crystal gems, the pearls, pearl brad and sentiment were from my own crafty stash.

I hope that you like this card and i would be thrilled if you were to leave me some comments.

Christmas is coming....

My First Magnolia Christmas Card Of The year

Hi everyone, Its another damp and miserable day here AGAIN but never mind I have decided to cheer myself up and have taken down my christmas crafting boxes, i just love all the glitter's, velvet ribbons, and all the other shiny christmassy things lol.

So here's my first magnolia christmas card. I have used Skating Tilda stamp and then she's been coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers and I have also added a sprinkle of glamour dust  for a little extra sparkle. 

 The papers i've used are from my own crafty little stash and i have also used bazzill basics and silver mirri, I have also used mulberry blooms, roses and rose buds (which I've glittered using diamond stickles)  and I have used punched out martha stewart snowflakes   and i have added some liquid pearls to them. 

The  white organza ribbon and bow, the sentiment and the silver charm are also from my own crafty little stash.  

Time for me to go now and catch up on some of the household chores that I've neglected to do but can't ignore any longer and I really must give my garden a little TLC the lawn won't mow itself (mores the pity lol)

Monochrome Magnolia

hi everyone,  I made this card yesterday using Magnolia with Daisy stamp which I coloured in Promarkers greys to create a monochrome look and I used red stickles for the daisy. 

I used a black 5 x 5 card as my base card,  then Kanban black damask card for the background, silver mirri and red bazzill basics for the mats.

The lace, ribbon, pearls and silver charm along with the magnolia stamp and whimsy sentiment stamp are all available from lisa at That Craft Place and the mulberry blooms and roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts . The heart gem and the clear bling gems are from my own little crafty stash.

I'm now off  to play with some new stamps I've got and I may even have a go at using my Tim Holtz Distress inks & pens which are also available from Lisa at That Craft Place to colour them.

                                                           See you all again soon
