A GIRLS BEST FRIEND

Hi Friends, hoping everyone is well.  Weather is crazy all over the place.  Thinking about those that are experiencing devastating floods and tornados.


Today's card is a Magnolia Tilda card.  I have so many of these delightful little children and haven't inked them up in a long time, so thought I would have a play.

I made this card, a pop-up book card from a pattern I found online last week, and changed up the pattern to make it 5x7 inches.  I also saw that it is the Try a New Technique for Monday this week on Split Coast Stampers and directions are given for two different sizes.







Stamps - Princess Tilda and two pups, Magnolia
All dies are Spellbinders
Sentiment is computer generated
Papers - White card stock and designer paper all from Michael's.
Stickles - Star Dust and Silver
Dog paw and hearts old small punches
Flowers from my stash, with candi centers
Liquid Pearls on her shoes
colored with Copics

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges;

Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog - Tuesday Challenge - Pretty in Pink

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.  Until later.





FRIENDSHIP

Hi friends.  Today's card is for a special friend.  I am loving this embossing folder and wanted to make a card right away when I received it.




White card stock base is 5x7
Pink and blue mats.
Friendship stamp - Penny Black
Embossing Folder - Hot Off the Press-Paper Wishes
Scalloped Circle is a Marvy Punch
Butterflies are a Martha Stewart Punch
Rhinestones on Butterflies
Colored the embossed image with chalks

Hope you have a wonderful day.  Thanks for stopping by. Until later........
