Magnolia News! The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge is starting soon!

Hi everyone and I've just popped on to let you know about The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge (otherwise known as TOMIC) which will be starting on 6th June! The challenge which will be run by many of the Magnolia Stamps design team and sponsored by Magnolia will be a weekly challenge with a randomly chosen winner from the entrants who'll receive a prize from Magnolia. The design team will choose their top five each week and all winners will receive a badge to display on their blog. 

We're all very excited about the new challenge and we hope you'll pop over to the TOMIC challenge blog, add yourself as a follower and join us for our very first challenge on Monday 6th June. We'd greatly appreciate it if you could help us to spread the word about the new challenge, it would be lovely  to reach as many Magnolia lovers as possible across the world :).

Enjoy your day and thank you as always for your lovely comments, they're always appreciated.

Cowgirl Tilda

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start :). A card to show today which I'm entering into Cute Card Thursday whose them this week is 'let's get krafty', Papertake Weekly where it's 'bloom and grow' and Creative Card Crew with the theme 'cute and girly'.

I die cut my card base with a GoKreate die from kraft card then cut the with the die next size down and used this to stamp and colour Tilda and the cactus with pencils for the CCT element. I added swirl roses that I die cut using a sizzix die for the PPTW element and then decorated with eyelets, twine, punched leaves, pearl pen pearls, rub on letters and black and white gel pen doodling. 

Enjoy your Saturday and thank you as always for the lovely comments, I always appreciated them :)..

Beautiful Tilda

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well and had a good weekend. A card today using Beautiful Tilda and very aptly named I think because she is and probably my new favourite :D! She's coloured with distress inks, some cobalt blue water colour paint and I've painted a flower scene around her. The card is a gatefold style made from kraft card and die cut using a GoKreate die. The patterned paper is by Magnolia and I die cut the butterfly twice using the gorgeous new DooHickey butterfly, it's a very pretty lacey cut design, the wings and body are separate dies which is great as you can cut the body and the wings in different colours or patterns. I've added lots of pearls using pearl pens and lots of stardust stickles of course :). 

I'm entering my card into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge where this week the theme is 'So Krafty' and kraft card has to be used. I'm also entering Paperplay Challenges with a theme of 'show us your style' and distress ink colouring and techniques are my favourites so I think this card fits that. Paper Sundaes has a theme of magical and mythical so I think the card fits that too.

Apologies for not returning comments but we've been away on holiday, hope to catch up soon. Enjoy your evening :)
