Ballerina Dance Squad

Hi there happy Sunday to all of you.

I would like to share with you today the card I made for my mothers 70 birthday. It’s the first time I made a pop up card. wow! all those years of crafting and never came around it. I picked for the card 3 coordinating Tildas. The girls came out in different collections. You can see some slight changes in how Pauline drew the shape of the faces. I really enjoy seeing how the images evolve and change. Lately the eyes became much bigger, so we can add those tiny white dots. cute! However I really do like her VERY old images a lot too.


To decorate the front I used:
Tilda Ballerina with ballet shoes
Dies: Doo Hickey Castle, Spellbinder oval, Doo Hickey leaf, Doo Hickey Tag, Doo Hickey heart swirl, Go Kreate for shape
Embellishments: flowers, tiny pocket, Stickles, heart doily, gauze, lace
Coloring: Copic Markers


for my pop-up images I picked:
Tilda Ballerina with ballet shoes, (baby Tingla ballerina) Prima Ballerina
Sentiment: Stempelglede
all Design papers are by Maja
Dies: Doo Hickey dream tag, Doo Hickey butterfly (cut twice for effect)
Other: gem ribbon, lace flower element gifted from Angie, glitter number stickers from stash, liquid pearl


if you haven't seen it yet, the latest Magnolia Collecting for this year summer 2014 “Pink Lemonade” is now available for Pre-order through Sir Stampalot.

Thanks ladies. lots of love

Hi there…

thank you for your visit. Sorry for my spare postings on my blogs.
If you are a subscriber of Sir Stampalot’s newsletters, which I highly recommend, you might know already that Magnolia ceases  Magnolia Ink as we know it. There will be issues published for special occasions like for Christmas, but for now the we highly anticipate some new adventures Magnolia is working on behind the regular stamp and die releases. I don’t want to spell the beans just yet, but the Design Team is working hard to make this something very worth for you to consider to purchase and be inspired by it.
I am TRYING to work on my given assignments which will be considered around Christmas, but the work as the be finished in just 3 weeks! OMG!!! I do have like 9 water colored images sitting on my craft desk but I am so blocked, I can’t even think of anything to do with them, the deadline isn't helping me either. I am sure some of you know the feeling.



my husband traveled last week to the UK for work, so I was able to hand him some things to drop in the mail for Janice. You might see some of those things in the shop. I tried to use supplies you can find at Sir Stampalot. If not I will have the link for you below this posting, so you can order everything online.

Tilda In The Wild

Hello Magnolia friends.
Thank you for swinging by. Today I would like to show you a card I made with one of the Animal of the Year Collection stamps called Tilda with Fizzy the snake. I hope you like it.
As you can see on the photos, I pulled my photo tent out again. The weather has not been the best the last weeks here in Michigan, in fact I couldn’t take the kids to the out door pool at all. Its so cloudy that the pictures just wouldn’t look right. For those of you who are interested what supplies (tent and how many lamps) I have a couple of pictures for you at the end of this posting.


stamps: Tilda with Fizzy the snake, script, animal love kit (hearts) by Magnolia Rubberstamps, sentiment by Whimsy
coloring: water colours
dies: Spellbinder circle and scalloped circle, Magnolia DooHickey tree branch (set of 5), Magnolia Doo Hickey Strawberry, Magnolia Doo Hickey Pinwheel, Magnolia Doo Hickey Bride Bow, Magnolia Doo Hickey So Lovely tag, Magnolia Doo Hickey Vintage Square for card shape, large flourish leaf by Lala Land
Papers: Maja Design “Ficka” papers my friend Crissy organized me about 3 years ago from Norway. Back than it was so hard to get those papers, so I hoarded them Smile now its easier to get them even in the USA. One of the places I get them is with Angie over at Little Darlings.
