Sending you a Great Big Hug!!

The Cute Magnolia stamps I have used on this card are CC09 Spring Tilda, CCo9 Watercan and C09 Dot Butterflies all from the "Chasing Butterflies Collection". The sentiment I've used is part of a stamp set I won over a year ago....and is created by Aud. The Fabulous sketch I've used for this card is the recent SC 237 at "Splitcoaststampers" I have colored the images with copics for base....prismacolor pencils and a bit of h20's to deepen the shade. I know I am a broken record but...*please remember to only use copics under prismacolor pencils .....never on top or your copic tips may be ruined!* Tilda is cut out and set on the water can with foam stickies for dimension.....The previous butterfly on the water can is replaced with one of the small Dot Butterflies and is partially glued down so the wings stay up. There is glitter on the flowers, leaves, Tilda's pony tail holders and the edge of the butterfly...but I couldn't capture it in the photo. I've used nesties for the image...and the watering can is "out of the box" so to speak ....to keep the image in the center. Ink- memento black, bashful blue, certainly celery Paper - Georgia Pacific whit, Bazill CS, Kraft, PP from Magnolia ...Bloom & Grow I believe. Accessories - flowers, nesties, brad (dollar store), jute webbing on the pink layer (not quite sure what it is called), drywall netting, jute string, stitching, glitter Have a Wonderful Weekend Everyone!...and Thank you so much for your Lovely comments!!!

Welcome to Sweet Magnolia's!!

Here ....... I will be displaying cards and projects made from the New Beautiful Magnolia stamps...and some of the Fabulous Past Collections. Some of the cards will be a flash from the past...but I believe...these lovely favorite stamps are definitely worth a 2nd look!! I first became introduced to Magnolia stamps by the very Talented and Lovely DT Inge. Click on her name to see her Gorgeous Creations.....(they still always blow me away!!). Then along came Fabulous DT Claudia ...well needless to say I was then hooked on these Cute and Fun little figures. Click on Claudia's name to see her Beautiful Creations!! The following is some of the new and older Creations I have made......Enjoy!!..... The pretty Magnolia on this card is "Tilda picking Lilacs". She is part of the Magnolia "Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009". Tilda as a Butterfly....isn't she Sweet?!!...You can find her in the Magnolia "Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009". The Fabulous sentiment "CC09 You Make Me Smile" is from the same collection.

I've used one of the new Magnolia Love Collection stamps on this card......."LC09 Be Mine" ...

As soon as I saw this stamp I thought of this little Tilda from the Magnolia New Year 2008 Collection ..."NY08 Dreamy Tilda". She almost seems to fit perfectly on top...lol. I've also used Jacquelines sketch here from a past Friday Sketchers. Thanks for the great sketch Jacqueline!!

I love tent cards....I think they are just the Cutest little cards and so quick to make. This card has Magnolia's cute little snowman called "CH07 Edwin's Snowman" from {Magnolia} WINTER & CHRISTMAS SUPPLEMENT 2007. The sentiment is from Hotp
A very quick Christmas card.... I used Magnolia's "HV08 Christmas Fir" from Christmas Collection 2008 and High Hopes "Meowy Christmas". The sentiment is a SU stamp.
I've used four stamps from Magnolia on this card......Sweet Tilda is "HV08 Tilda with Candy Cane" from the Christmas Collection - the tag is "NY08 Tag" from the New Years Collection - the snowflake is "HV08 Gigant Snowflake" and the holly is "DEC07 Järnek / Holly" from the Winter & Christmas Supplement 2007. The joy and cheer sentiment is from HOTP Christmas Art
On this card I have used 2 Magnolia stamps...."HV08 Tilda decorate christmas Tree" and "HV08 Christmas Tree". Both of these stamps are from the "Holiday Collection 2oo8" I think this little Tilda is so cute with her little basket of ornaments...and the tree is so easy and fast to color.
The Tilda I've used on this heart card is "HV08 Tilda with Heart Ornament" and "HV08 Fir Branch" both from the recent "Holiday Collection 2oo8".
Here is a cute little round box Magnolia sent me to decorate. I have never taken photos of something like this so I took a few extra ....the top one being the top of the box.
In this photo I am trying to give you the over all look of the box.....not quite sure I've achieved that here....
This photo is of the sides. The stamp Cute Tilda I used is here is called, "HV08 Tilda with Heart Ornament" and she is from the recent "Holiday Collection 2oo8" The bench is SEA08 Old Bench and is from the "2008 Summer and Sea Collection"
Thank you so much for looking Everyone!!
