Something Eggstra Special For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge

Hello Everyone!! It's the 4th Tuesday in March, so it's time for a Inspiration Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!!  This wonderful challenge is being hosted by the talented Angela who has chosen this wonderful photo to inspire us all.

Doesn't this cake look delicious!! I hope it inspires you to play along with us!  All you need to do is to use some of the elements from the inspiration photo along with a Magnolia image on your card or project. Your entry will give you the opportunity to be the lucky winner of a Gift Certificate to Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Maggies.  .  . Regular Size and Minis too.   .   . along with dies from Memory Box and Poppystamps and so much more!! I can't wait to see your beautiful Spring creations!!

I would like to take this time to welcome the fabulously talented Jacque to the  Magnolia-licous Challenge Blog Design Team.  She will be a Guest Design Team Member and  joining in on the challenges from time to time.  Jacque's cards are always so gorgeous and very inspirational!   I'm so excited that she will be part of this wonderful  team!  Please stop by her blog and give her a big welcome!!

For my card, I decide to make another Center Step Card.  The last time I made a Center Step Card, I cut the slits needed to create the card using my cutting mat, clear metal edged ruler and my craft knife.  This time I had a aha moment!! LOL!! I used the Scor Pal with the matching Scor Mat instead of the cutting mat.  I used the measurements at the top of the Scor Pal to line up the ruler along with the grid on the Scor Mat and I used the measurements on the side of the Scor Pal to know where to start and end the cuts. I can't tell you how much easier it was to make the card! I love this style of card and can't wait to make more!

To embellish my card, I used Nitwit Hoppy Hearts Digital Design Paper and  Best Creations Design Papers.  Mini Little Bunny Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, along with all the other images that I used were stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  The basket stamp is from Darcies - JCS0084. The Easter Eggs and Peeps are from Studio G.  Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter was added to the Peeps, Tilda, and the Easter Eggs. The grass was cut using the Grass Border Punch from Martha Stewart. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. And, the ribbon is from my stash.

Thank you stopping by today!! I hope that you will visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous cards and projects that the other Design Team Members have created!!

Have a wonderful day.   .   . a wonderful week!! 

Big Hugs,

You don't need a rule with the scormat? Does it have grooves in it? hmmm... thinking about buying it.

Opi said...

You did such a good job w/the colors one could almost not even see that the baby cute pink bunny was in there but for her cute face.
I really think that you should make us a video tutorial on HOW U MADE the ACTUAL CARD. YOU really HAVE SOMETHING there, using the score-pal and s a ruler too, why imagine that!
