MAGNOLIA BIRTHDAY CARD

I signed up for the Maganolia Birthday card group and then forgot about it.  Yesterday I received the most beautiful birthday card I have ever gotten.  Thank you Kathy Gerace, you are very talented and it shows in the easel card you made for me.

EASTER MAGNOLIA

This is a new Magnolia stamp  from the 2013 Easter Collection.  I think it is so pretty.  The Egg was colored with Copics.  I did not remember to take a pic of the markers I used.  The card stock is Bazzill (of course) and the dp's from my stash and is daisyd's Maybe Baby Collection.  I used copics and my air compressor to spray the green flowers  all the other embellies are from my stash.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

EWE

I made this card using this weeks freebie divi from Bugaboo.  Isn't this lamb just adorable.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and stickles.  The dp I used was from last year and is by American Crafts, "I Heart You".  I used Bazzill in Pomogranate for the cardstock.  The heart border I cut out using my Klic N Kut.

BORN TO RIDE

I made this card for the Outlawz Challenge, "My Favorite Things" My Favorite things would be  my 2007 250cc Vespa, Magnolia Tilda Stamps and Spellbinder die cuts, and to the Maganoliacious Color Challenge.   I was hoping to make the ribbon look like the highway and the flame dp is a Harley Davidson paper.  For the silver embellishment I die cut a piece of aluminum tape that hubby had in his workshop then crumpled it up.  I took the saying from the Steppanwolf song "Born To Be Wild".

I colored the Tilda image with Copics.

I am also entering this in the Magnalicious Color Challenge

I COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT

I made this card for the Outlawz challenge Paper Ala Mode.  The image was one I received from Anne Fenton as part of another challenge.  I was really torn as to what challenge to enter this into but decided to go with the Paper ala Mode Silver, Gold or Sparkly theme.  Full credit to Anne for this perfect image!

I colored the dancer with Copic markers.  I used dp from Reminisce: Wedding Stripes, glitter card stock from Best Creation color #GCS014 Black and the card stock is Waussau Royal Metallics paper pack in the color:  Excalibur Steel on Black Knight.

The embossing plate is a Cuttlebug.  I put little tiny pearls on her earrings and necklace but....once I ran it though the Grand Caliber to die cut it out...it smashed them flat,  I really like the way they turned out (not at all planned), so I left them as they are.  The velvet ribbon is from my "stash" (lucky me!)

For some reason I really love this card.  She just looks so ready to party for New Year's Eve.....Probably one of my all time personal favorites!

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A NEW CHALLENGE CARD FOR OUTLAWZ

Happy New Year to all my friends!

Today it is quiet around here so I made a card for the Outlawz Creative Freebie Challenge using the freebie they provided, the Cupcake.  The dp's I used are from Quick Quotes and from Junkitz.  Both I have had in my "stash" for awhile.  The cardstocks are Bazzill.  I am in love with the Dotted Swiss papers.  I used Copics to color the cupcake image.  The greeting is a CTMH stamp.
