"You're So Sweet" - Lazy Summer Days Collection 2009

I am actually in time for a couple of challenges with this card....The Fabulous "sketch" at Friday Sketchers and the fun theme being "at the sea" at Stamp with Fun.

The stamps I have used for this card are "LZ09 Bathing Ring" - "LZ09 Beach Tilda" - "LZ09 Post Strawberry" all from Magnolia's Lazy Summers Day Collection 2009

Again I've I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Tilda has been masked off so she could sit on the bathing ring. To create the sentiment...I also masked off the adjoining works on the You're So Sweet stamp so I could stamp them out separately...then just tore around them and inked the edges with SU Creamy Caramel ink. I used nesties for the circle and scalloped layer and attached the image circle with foam pop ups onto the scalloped layer. There is shimmerz (Angel wings) brushed on the flowers along the bottom of the image.

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, creamy caramel. Paper - GP white, basic grey "Euphoria", Michael's, bazill cs. Accessories - flowers, lace, glitter brads, shimmerz, ribbon, nesties, stitching, acrylic paint for detail dots.

Exciting News!!...Magnolia is coming out with their very own Magazine called "Magnolia Ink"!!...the first issue should be out within a few months....So keep an eye out for it!!!

Today my dear hubby and I are celebrating our Anniversary. We have been married for 36 Wonderful years!! ....So..I'm off for now....maybe for a little wine...and dine.......

Have a Lovely Day Everyone!!......and Thank you so much for all your Wonderful Comments!!

Straight from the heart! - "School, Travel & So Heavenly Collection 2008"

Another card from the past....This card features stamps from Magnolias the School, Travel & So Heavenly Collection 2008 . The Past Fabulous sketch I used was created by Murmer for Friday Sketchers.

The stamps I used from this Magnolia collection are - SH08 Korsstygns Tilda, SH08 Himmelsk Burk,SH08 Hylla med Handdukar and SH08 Korg med lingon.

The sentiment stamp is from a set of stamps I won from Aud at My Little Corner. I stamped the center separately and popped it up on dimensionals....although you can't tell from the photo. All the papers and accents are from the Magnolia store.....except for the rick rak and the CS behind the sentiment.

All images are stamped on white Georgia Pacific CS and are colored with prismacolor pencils (oderless mineral spirits) and H20's. White acrylic paint was used for the accents.

Have a Lovely Weekend Everyone!!
