Beach Day - Magnolia-licious DT

Hello!   Back again for another challenge at Magnolia-licious DT. Short post today for me..sorry. Busy summer!  This week Paola given us the following photo for inspiration:

When I look at this photo, I think of a bedroom in a beach house. Not sure why, but I do. So I used that as my inspiration along with the colors for my project.

I have used 2 mini Magnolias in for my card and masked them together. You can get all your mini maggies from the Magnolia-licious Store.

See the sand? That was created with Mudd Puddles. I LOVE this stuff. They come in a bunch of different colors and types of "sand" This one in particular is called Malibu Beach. You just use a pallet knife and apply it to the surface. It takes about 1 hour to dry and 24 hrs to cure. Fun stuff to play with. The shells were handpicked by my daugher a few days ago when she went to the beach for the afternoon. They were pretty plain so I did add a little copic coloring to them for some color.  The papers that I used are from MME - Lime Twist collection. The pearls are liquid pearls. 

Hope you are able to join us for the challenge and please check out the other DT's creations...very inspiring, I will promise you that. As always, Diana gives away a $20 gift certificate to a winner chosen randomly.  So everybody has a chance to win!!!

Rainy Day

Morning! Where have I been? Well.....I have been working and vacationing.....and just plain busy. I think I have totally lost some of my ummph and mojo. I truly just haven't had it in me to get into my craft room and be very productive!! It's just terrible. It doesn't help that my husband tore up my house to fix a wall and threw everything into my craft room...so now it's a MESS. I need to get in there to clean it then maybe I'll get some inspiration to craft!   However, I am on vacation quite a bit in the next month. So....I can't see much happening. I promise to be back in full swing in August! ;-))  Until then, I am hoping to at least keep it consistant and post once a week!

I created this card for my Local Scrapbook Store. We have a monthly "Copic Night". It's a great deal, for a small class fee you come in and get a free copic marker, get a percentage off your purchase of copics that night and you get to make a card. The owner is stocking a few magnolias and I just love this one.  The papers I believe are from Echo Park.  I put a nice coating of Liquid glass on the boots and the water puddle. I made a template for the Cloud sentiment.  Thats basically it. I kept it simple because it's for class.

Thank You- Magnolia-Licious DT

**Click HERE for my Blog Candy

Good Tuesday Morning. Did you miss us at the Magnolia-licious DT. The challenges are the 2nd and 4th Tusday of the month..so we ended up with a 3 week gap....seems like so long since we last posted!!  But we are all back and the DT have come up with some fabby inspiration for you.  This challenges colors are going to be PINK!  So come on and show us what you got!

Today I have used the new "Rocking Tilda" from the lastest Rainbow Collection. I just LOVE it. This one totally reminds me of my daughter. She is the Hula queen, that girl can go on and on hula hooping. I mean seriously...she is like the energizer bunny when it comes to hula hooping, it's crazy!  Anyways, you can puchase this stamp at the Magnolia-licious store HERE.

I have colored Tilda with Copic markers. The papers are from an old kit I had made by Crate paper. Those beautiful roses were made by Ms. Anniebee - you can check out her FABULOUS coloring and creations HERE. The pearls around the scalloped oval are Liquid Pearls, I just love those things. I find if you just tap the card once or twice that they round out nicely.  I added a nice dose of Stardust stickles to the hula hoop and the sneakers. They remind me of those Twinkle Toes by Sketchers!   Are you ready to play along with us? If so, come on over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and enter for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Store!

Thats all for today. It's summertime and the kids are out of school and we have a heck of a lot going on over the summer. This summer we are traveling to Ohio for a few days and making a pit stop somewhere else. Not sure where yet. The a few weeks after that we are going to North Carolina to stay in the cabin for a few days. We try to do that every year...it's our "thing". So,you may have noticed the lapses in post lately from me. I will be around but not quite as frequently as I once was. I think alot of people are doing simliar things. It's just much harder in the summer months...at least for me!  I have a few things coming up in the next few weeks...so keep an eye on me! ;)

Happy Birthday Cupcake Gift Card Holder

Morning. I have seen these cute little cupcakes over the internet for sometime now and have been wanting to make one forever. If you know me, you know that I LOVE cupcakes! Anything and everything...I love cupcakes. I know it's a craze all over now!  I also like to make cupcakes and eat them...oh yes!  Unfortunately I can't make and experiment with flavors as much as I would like to because if I did that I would most definitely find myself eating them and that is not a good idea,  If you know what I mean.  So for now I will just have to get by in making "pretend" cupcakes. I actually ended up taking a class at my LSS for the cupcake itself, although I tweaked the way I made this one some. I also wanted a box to put my cupcake in so I made the box.  I have LOTS of pictures....so here ya go....

I originally got this idea from Tresa Black. She is a CTMH consultant (as was I)  Then I took the class from Suzanne at my LSS. What I ended up doing is combining both of their cupcakes to make this one. Basically, I liked a little of what both of them did. Now for the details.  The paper is from SEI and CTMH.  I used about 18 ft of ribbon for the frosting, yea, it takes alot. You can also use flowers or fabric for the frosting!  The cherry is a 3/4" round bead that I painted red and immediately sprinkled glitter over it. I then took a piece of heavy twine or hemp, colored it red using my copic and strung it through the hole for the stem. I added liquid glass to hold it!  I then attached the cherry to a toothpick and attached the toothpick to a piece of cardstock that goes into the inside of the cupcake to hold a gift card.

I have to tell you, this is not a project you would make for just anybody...why? Because it takes lots of time!! lol  However, my second cupcake took much less time then the first. They are not something I would mass produce, I will tell you that! hehe This particular cupcake was made for my friends birthday, which is today.

 Happy Birthday Hannah  
I don't think she even looks at my blog, but just in case! hehe 

Thats all for today. Don't forget I have a small blog candy going on until next June 20th. Part of the latest magnolia collection! ;-))  Click here for my  BLOG CANDY

I'm Back w/ Blog Candy!!

Hello! So this was officially the longest I have been away! Yikes! My family and I went away last weekend to Orlando. We didn't even do any parks. We just relaxed by the pool, it was fabulous! Since I have been back I have been busy with home projects and reading. I go in waves with crafting and reading. Lately I have been on a reading kick. This weekend was the first I have been in my craft room in almost 2 weeks!!

I was pretty excited that I was able to pick up some, ahem...just a few...really...only a few...I swear, of the new collection from Magnolia. I wasn't sure what I wanted to color up first but I figured since Father's day is right around the corner I would make up a fathers day card for the hubby. I was so bummed that I wasn't able to make any Mother's Day cards this year. I LOVE making them because you get all flowery and stuff...but I was so busy during April and May I didn't have time! Wah!

Today I used Edwin Waiting for Fish.

Edwin is colored with Copic markers. I wasn't sure what I was going to sit him on and I ended up using the mini bench believe it or not. In my mind I really wanted him on a dock but I just didn't see me drawing up a dock! So next I thought maybe on a rock...or a log or something. Well I have none of those...so a small bench it is!! I then drew a "shoreline".  Those fabby papers are from MME - "Out of the Blue" from the Lime Twist Collection.  I misplaced my Father's Day stamp...No clue where it may be so I printed out a simple sentiment from my computer.

 Make it Colourful - Cast a shadow
Come and Get it - Fathers Day
Creative Inspirations - Fathers Day
Here Comes the Boys - Fathers Day
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes
Craft your Days Away -Fathers Day

Ok so here is the BEST part!! Remember I said that I picked up a "few" magnolias from the new collection. Well, it just so happens that I picked up a DOUBLE! So guess what? I'm giving it away as BLOG CANDY to one of my blogger friends!  YAY!!!
