Hello Everyone! One of my favorite times of the year is fall! During the fall, my hubby and I love to go for the day to Oak Glen, a little town up in the mountains, to get some apples, freshly pressed apple cider, apple pie and more. I usually pack a picnic and we go to all the orchards and shops! One of our favorite places to stop is Snow Line Orchard. They have the best Apple Cider Mini Donuts that they make while you wait! The warm donuts covered with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar are so delicious! I can't wait to go this year!
Today at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, we are being hosted by our very sweet Design Team
Leader, Candy. The theme that she has chosen is to USE BUTTONS on a card or project!
I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! All you need to do is use a Magnolia Image and Buttons on your card or project. Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of a Special Surprise Gift from
Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Magnolias and many other wonderful things.
Halloween is just around the corner and Diana has put together a Halloween/Autumn Bundle of 14 Mini Stamps with a 28% Savings!! All the minis in the bundle are so cute!. . . Perfect for Halloween Treat Bags, Tags and Cards!
For my Criss Cross Card, I have used Digi Design Papers from MyGrafico Shery K Designs Apples Collection and Christmas 5 Collection. Apple Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. For the scalloped borders, I used EK Success Dotted Scallop Slim Edger Punch. This is one of my favorite punches! The apples on either side of Tilda are buttons from JHB. They were originally a bright red, which didn't match the design papers very well, so I painted them with Martha Stewart Multi Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paints - Chipotle and Pesto. Then, I added a coating of Glossy Accents with a paint brush. The lace and red gingham ribbon are from my stash. The doily is from Wilton. The pearl strand is from JoAnn's. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and All Natural Accents.
Here is a look of the card and the insert that fits in the pocket.
The apple on the insert is a Sticko sticker from EK Success.
