Dance the Night away!

Hi there!


I am here to share with you an inspirational post which I did for the awesome Magnolia-licious Store! Shawn sent me some Maja papers from the Celebration Collection, and other beautiful goodies (which you will see here) and there are awesome! These inspired me to create a vintage gift bag with the theme Have a Ball - dance the night away! See for yourself...






I have used quite a lot of dies, lace and pieces here, and those which you can find at the Store will be listed here, further down.

I really fell in love with this couple dancing so romantically :) I'm very soft at heart, lol. And look at that awesome rose lace.. isn't it beautiful? I did not wish to use it to say the truth, but my work is to promote the Store, and to do that I need to use the products, right? :)







I also did some foamiran blue flowers, to which I added a spray of white flowers and white leaves... Did you try out doing your own flowers yet? If not, what are you waiting for? They are easy to do, a bit time consuming, but very worth it.






 In the following photo you can see another detail, the Magnolia wedding lace DooHickey die cut I added...  its intricate detail goes very well with this bag's style, and I love how it came out! I inked its edges with Antique Linen and some dashes of Walnut Stain inks to take off the stark white of the cardstock. .




Here goes the sentiment I chose to add to the bag, a "Have a Ball" ticket, which I run through my Big Shot with the Rox Stamp border die to create those holes, and then I also inked it up with the same 
distress inks. I also cut the same border on the main Celebration paper... really love the effect it gives! 






Some more details.. this time it's the bottom part of the bag - with the film strip ribbon, organza bow and vintage button. Oh how I loved doing this bag :) I think it will be very difficult to give this away :) You can notice what is written on the bottom of the paper.. Dance the night away... shall you?







Now to the list of products used on this project which you can purchase from Magnolia-licious. You will be provided with direct links, just click on the product and voila!

Some Magnolia DT Inspiration - And News of a great Sale for this week!

Hi dear blogging friends!

Back again after some weeks MIA cause of some harsh flu that decided to batter my energy and mojo levels. Spring is in the air, but today I would like to share with you a mini project that I was working on before this naughty flu knocked me out!! It is a "Christmas project"... and you say Christmas??? Now??

Yeah... it takes more than a month, usually almost a month and a half for things to reach my destination, so I get behind on seasonal projects which include Christmas, Easter etc. But who cares, really? :) Maggies are cute all year through, and some Christmas cheer is always accepted, no? :)



For this cute sleigh, filled with all-smiles and delicious Christmas fathers I added this sweet Magnolia  stamp which is called Tilda with Star from the Christmas Party '17 Collection. I coloured this image using both Copic markers and Prismacolour pencils.

It's such a fun image, and you can find it, together with LOTS of cute Magnolia stamps at Magnolia-licious Store, this one you can find it here. 


SOME GREAT NEWS FOR ALL OF YOU!!!!

Shawn decided to put the entire Christmas Party 2017 on sale for 30% off for this week. The sale will be from Monday to Friday! Don't miss out on getting some of these stamps!!



Check them out on the Store's Blog HERE 




I hope this inspirational post makes you want to play with Christmas stuff, even though Spring is in the air :) Do go and grab some discounted stamps and LOTS of fun things from Shawn's STORE. It's amazing how much goodies that Store holds. NOW you can also find the amazing Neenah cardstock which are amazing for Copics and other mediums. Doo Hockey dies from past kits are also for sale, with new Rox dies and chipboard, laces and so much more! Go and check it out!!

Bee Mine!

Hope you're having a marvellous week!

Here I am again to share with you a small but cute inspirational DT project I did with one of Mo's gorgeous images. This image is called Bee Mine, and you can purchase it, with lots of other fun digital images here. 





This time I went with a bottle tag, and I really liked how it turned out! Isn't it cute? This image is one of the most loved right now, and you can see why... her cute expression says it all!! I also used orange - lots of it, and this means I went out of my comfort zone with this one. I do not use yellow and orange often, lol, but here it is! :) And I love it!



I teamed her up with some Magnolia dies from the My DooHickey kit no.10 (Buzz Buzz)  that include a bee hive, a cute bee, and some other fun stuff! I hope you love it, and that you go and snatch her up at Mo's Digital Pencil! She's too fun!! The sentiment comes with the image, but I decided to print it separately and divide it into two small other "tags". Then a couple of flowers, swirls, and rhinestones to finish her up!


Wishing you lots and lots of happy moments! And lots of Love!

Many blessings

Rosette

An Armful of Flowers

Happy Friday dearest blogging friends!

I hope each one of you is doing well, and is looking forward for the weekend! Here I am again today to share with you a Magnolia card with a stamp that I won a couple of weeks ago from a challenge, together with some Magnolia paper flowers! Yay!! :)






This is called Tilda with an armful of flowers, which you can find on Sale at Magnolia-licious, together with lots of other Maggie cuteness. This stamp in particular you can find it here

I coliured Tilda with my Copics, and I Distressed the edges with Dusty Concord and Broken China Distress inks. I paired here with a couple of papers from my stash, and layered her in my usual style :)



The butterfly stamp was laying around on my craft table (it was from another collection from a couple of years ago, can't remember the name), and I thought that it would make a cute addition to this "spring-y" stamp.

I also added Stickles to the butterfly wings, to the flower centres and on Tilda's hair band.



If you haven't tried foamiran yet, you surely are missing a lot! I played with some yellow and white foramiran, which I touched with purple and green oil pastels. They surely look beautiful IRL! I finished them with white and purple microbead stamens and some glitters as well :)  You can find all the links from where you can buy these beauties from Magnolia-licious Store below.





Copics used:
Skin: E000, Eoo, E21, E22 (cheeks)
Top, hair band and boots: BV0000, BV04
Jeans: B0000, B91, B95, B97
Flowers: Y06, Y23, YR16

Angel Tilda for Magnolia-licious

Hi sweetest Blogging friends!

I am a bit late posting this, but the last two days have been crazy and I did not manage to stretch my energy to succeed in writing and posting this before.

February has started, therefore it is tome for another challenge at Magnolia-licious, and this time we have out usual super easy "Anything Goes" but with an option of Valentine's!


My DT friends have made some super inspirational cards, go and check them out HERE, and do consider to join in the fun!

Remeber that you could win $20 in Shawn's Store, Magnolia-licious, plus a chance to be our next guest designer. 


Now unto the details of my card:


I used CP 17 - Divine Angel Tilda, which you could find in Shawn's Store by clicking on the stamp's name itself. I coloured this image using Distress reinkers, and then I added some final touches with Prismacolours and white gel pen.

I used a mixture of Magnolia papers, some half pearls  and pink heart shaped rhinestones for some bling.


You may also notice that her wings and halo are covered with Diamonds and stardust Stickles. They really make her pop! :)

Arounf the image I also stamped some postage round stamps, using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and I also added a large red heart embellishment, backed with a black feather.




Quite a romantic feel to this card, but I didn't want to make it exclusively a Valentine's card, as then I know that it won't be used! :) That is why I chose the sentiment "Sending Hugs". 




I hope you go an check the Store, and Shawn is getting so much goodies, I wish I could physically see them and be in that Store!!! 
Do come and join the fun, and share this challenge with your friends! We would love to be inspired by your fantastic creations!! 

Have and wonderful day! Sending Hugs.....

Get well Soon....

Hi dearest crafting friends!

I hope you had a wonderful week and that you are geared up for the weekend! I really need some crafting time as I had a tough week and I did not have the time or energy to pick up my colours, so I'm in withdrawal now!! :D

A couple of weeks ago I finished this card with Magnolia Get well Collection. It is one of my favourites right now, I really loved this collection!





You can find these awesome products at Magnolia-licious Store, by clicking on the names of the products linked below: 

The stamp used is : Tilda with Bunny Slippers (From the GW17 Collection), Heart Medicine Doo Hickey die(from the same collection). Isn't it cool?! 

Also available at the Store are the Sofiero Maja Design papers and charms.

For two of the flowers I used white foamiran, white stamens and a styrofoam flower centre covered with silver glitter. 

I coloured the image using Distress inks, and also used twine, lace, paper doily, flowers cardboard heart with gesso and pearl.





I coloured the image using Distress reinkers, although I enjoy also pencils and Copics, I just love my Ranger Inks.




Here you can see the twine and the charm, together with the sweetest medicine and the cardboard heart. I just love the look of lace with Maja papers!




A close up of the foamiran flowers, paper flower and the vintage button added. The leaves are cut by using a punch I had for quite some years now.




I also added some flu stuff as a background to this card :) You can catch my Beechams Cold and Flu, a thermometer and some hand sanitizer there as well :) I needed all of these some weeks ago, plus the Halls mints.


I hope you loved the card, and that you get to play with some of this cool stuff yourself! I wish I had all day to create!! ) lol

New Magnolia-cious challenge and Giveaway!

Hi there!

Today marks the first challenge of Magnolia-licious challenge blog for 2018, and if you have already come on my blog yesterday, you will know that I have something special going on for you here right now.

Yesterday I shared an easel card I did as my inspirational card for Magnolia-licious. Today, I have a gift box which I did to match with this same card. I did this for the same reason that this gift box forms part of the surprise - therefore I could not make the full reveal yesterday. So today is the Day!!





This is the gift box that together with yesterday's card can be yours to: (1) either keep for yourself, or (2) for you to give away as a gift - you choose!! :D 


This is the set that I'm talking about, and I'm sure that you all love to give away some hand crafted gifts. 



But that is not all! The giveaway consist of this set together a with a  Magnolia stamp and some crafting goodies for you. as I said both the card and the box will also be yours (I shall not write anything in the card so that you can use it if you want to. 


You can see the whole giveaway and how to win it further down. 



The image which I used for this box is Bon Voyage Tilda (2010), and I used the same and matching Magnolia papers from the card. I also added a small bouquet of paper flowers, some sea shells, pearls, ribbon and some Tim Holtz Ephemera. To also enhance the matching factor, I also used from My DooHickey Vol.10 the heart die to include another two hearts - just like in the card. The person who wins this cutie will find some goodies in it! ;) shhh!!





so now... let's get to the giveaway: This is the whole lot that you can win if..... (scroll beneath the pic) 




1. You go and purchase some crafting goodies from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS Store - you have until Thursday 18th (of January). All I can say is that Shawn has some amazing and very tempting paper pads, chipboard, stamps, dies, foamiran.... the list is endless, you have lots to choose from!  You can see and example from my projects ;) 

2. Then come back here on this post and let me know by commenting on this post that you did your purchase. Automatically you will be in for the draw. 

I will draw a winner and check out with the owner, Shawn, about the purchase. Winner will be announced here, on this Blog on the 19th January  - I will do it in my evening as I live in the heart of Europe, so my time zone is different - in this way I will give all of you a fair amount of time. I will also post worldwide. 

If the winner does not communicate with me here until the 22nd, I will draw another name

I will appreciate greatly if you spread the word by copying the giveaway picture and make it on the side of your blog with a link to mine - this is not compulsory, but I am am aware that not many visitors come often on my blog, so I would like other people to know about this chance to win this goodie bag/box. I just love to make someone happy. 




I wish you all a very happy week ahead, and may all your hopes and dreams come true!!! 

Keeping you in my prayers :)

Just because I care...

Hello there!!


I hope this year started well for all of you, and that you are finding some time and motivation to do that thing that you love most.





πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š


We at Magnolia-licious had a few days of break from DT duties, which worked good for me so that I could get a bit ahead - very much not like I usually do, as I have usually finish my projects in the last days which I would normally need them! :) Anyway, this easel card which I sharing with you for inspiration is my first card for 2018.

I really enjoyed myself doing it, let's say that the products from Magnolia-licious Store really inspire me to play! :D





πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Below you will see the list of products I have used, let me know what you think of it.

This New Year put me in the mood of doing a little game... let me see....

Tomorrow we have the start of a new challenge at Magnolia-licious, and in collaboration with Shawn and the team, I will be organising a giveaway for all of you amazing crafters. So... those of you who as from today, 8th January till the 15th, purchase crafting goodies from Magnolia-licious Store will get this card from me... and some small surprises with it?! :D The FULL REVEAL of the giveaway will be shown TOMORROW, here on this blog. 

 So come back tomorrow and in the coming days and let me know that you have purchased from the STORE. After checking out  the purchase with Shawn (the owner) I will draw a lucky winner! :D (Only those comments with a purchase will be eligible to win). 


The winner will be announced here on the 16th January.




πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Now what did I use for this card:

Stamp: Heavenly Tilda from the Aspen Holidays (2016) Collection

Paper: Magnolia paper

Lots of Magnolia dies: (1) My DooHickey Box Kit vol.10 (using the heart die from this kit)
(2) Magnolia Doo Hickey die ST17 - Tree Stump
(3) Vintage dooHickey die 17 - Small Square

πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š


I also added some Foamiran flowers to the easel card. For these I used red and light pink foamiran from the large selection of colours which Shawn carries in the Store, and black and white stamens. 






πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š


From my stash I also added some lace, a doily and that ticket sentiment, together with some paper flowers and leaves. Tilda was coloured by Prismacolour Pencils - yes Santa was very good to me this year! I was literally in tears when I opened my gift!! :)

For the inside I stamped the large Magnolia  mushroom on a die-cut label and coloured it with pencils as well. I forgot what collection this was from, but it went well with the paper, so I loved it.




πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š


As you can see, the Store carries a lot of crafting goodies, and Shawn is adding more items. Have you seen the awesome berries, and the chipboard pieces? They look awesome!!

I shall leave you for now, but I do hope to hear from you. I LOVE how this card turned out, and I would really like to give it to someone who appreciates it! I will not we writing on the inside, so that the person who wins it, can use it, or keep it... whatever you choose! :) Let me know when you purchase, and you'll be in a chance to receive it at home.
