...a few cards to share..

yes! - I'm still playing with my copics and making cards. Here are my favourites from this weekend's "playtime".

This stamp is Rosalie with Roses a Swiss Miss from C.C.Designs - the sweet papers were chosen from the Porcelain range from BasicGrey enhanced with Baby Pink Fairytale Roses from Prima

This is "Sitting Tilda"
from the Magnolia Summer Collection 2010
Her Denim Overalls = Copics B93, B95, B97

...and this is Midsummer Tilda from the Fairytale Collection - the rainbow background is also a Magnolia Stamp - I got a bit carried away with the glitter but we all like a bit of bling don't we?!! ;)

Angel Hartline has teamed up with AnDi Designs & JW-DigiScraps to create Sun Kissed. It’s a beautiful kit made up of glorious shades of gold, green and is so full of "sunshine" it makes your heart sing....just looking at it makes me happy and I’ve already created a variety of layouts with this kit - and I know there are more to come.

If you want to add this kit to your collection too - visit

More Magnolia Madness!!

A lovely order of new markers arrived this week from the lovely Sammi at "Mad for Markers" and I just had to play - but I have to say, choosing colours is so much harder.... when you have heaps more to chose from LOL!! - but I managed... and this is what I created.

Tilda with 3 Flowers - stamp from the Hoppy Easter Collection 2010 - Thankyou Sentiment is from Stampin' Up' "Short & Sweet" Collection - Creative Memories & Prima paper flowers - Lace Adhesive and Lilac Pearls.

CrossStitched Tilda from the "So Heavenly, Travel & School Collection 2008" - love the way this card turned out - simple but classy!

Midsummer Tilda from the Fairytale Collection and Open Gate Stamp from the Magnolia Hoppy Easter Collection 2010 - a couple of little mistakes in this card sshhhh "don't tell anyone" ;)

I know this Tilda is from the Fairytale Collection but I'll need to check up on her name! :) - Spring Fence Stamp from the Magnolia "Hoppy Easter Collection 2010" - a little silver glitter used in her wings - I experimented with lots of colour here and even surprised myself with the results!!

CrossStitched Tilda from the "So Heavenly, Travel & School Collection 2008" - this time in Purple & Greens - Copics used V06, V15, V17 - Skin Tones - E00, E51, E21 and a touch of R20 for the cheeks..with three little spots of white added with a gel pen.

Well today I have to tidy up my Happy Scrapping Room so I can play some more - stay tuned!!

Magnolia & Marker Madness !!

I haven't updated my blog for quite awhile - but I have been busy creating all sorts of things - I've taken up quilting, helped my niece with a special scrapbooking project and rediscovered the fun of cardmaking. Yes, my Copic Makers have been dusted off and placed back in a "high profile" position on the desk in my "happy room".... especially now that I have discovered Magnolia Stamps!! - I just love colouring in these cute images - these rubber stamps are designed in Sweden and are simply adorable! Here is a sample of the first cards I made with them.

This is "Pink Tilda with Heart" from the Pink Collection 2008 - The little wooden bench in this card is also a Magnolia stamp - love how the images can be seated!

A Happy Hello to 'brighten' your day!
"Tilda with 3 Flowers" from the Hoppy Easter Collection 2010

Japanese Tilda from the Bon Vogage Collection

This stamp is "Midsummer Tilda" from the FairyTale Collection - the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set I've had in my collection for sometime!!

This stamp is Christmas Party Tilda from the So Jolly Collection '09 - the "Merry Christmas" stamp is one I have in my collection but very rarely used - maybe that might change this year!!??! The background has been sponged with Ruby Red ink from Stampin' Up and some clear Kindy Glitter.
