Hi Everyone! For one of my New Year's Resolutions, I have decided to try to use the craft products that I already have in my craft room. I have always had a love for paper even when I was a little girl. There use to be a stationary store near my house where I use to buy all sorts of construction papers by the sheet, the rainbow one being my favorite. I also had these Lindy Ball Point Pens in all the different colors. I even had a set of 36 color pencils back then and I have to admit to you all that I still have them in their original box! My addiction to paper, ribbon and lace has grown in the last few years. I don't feel bad though, because I know that I'm not the only one in this boat. I'm proud of myself, because I used quite of few things from my stash on this card!
Chris has chosen this wonderful picture to inspire us all!
I hope it inspires you to play along with us! All you need to do is to use a MAGNOLIA IMAGE 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.
For my card, I was inspired by the grey, pink and black in the picture along with the tree branches. I used Digi Design Papers from Shery K Designs - Love in Paris Collection that I purchased at MyGrafico. Tilda with Christmas Hearts, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I paper pieced her dress using some digi papers. I added some Black Doodlebug Flock to the trim of the dress to make it look like black velvet. I just love this sweet image! It's just perfect to send a little love to someone special any time of the year! I made the flowers using a set of Joy Flower Dies. I die cut them out and sponged them with some Pink Chalk Ink from Recollections. The Black Centers are Studio112 Adhesive Gems from Joann Fabrics and Crafts. The Pink Mini Roses and Rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Branch was cut using Sizzlets Cherry Blossom Branch. The Bird was cut using LR0205 Marianne Designs Creatables Die Set. The Heart Lace is from Joann Frabrics and Crafts. The Pink and White Bakers Twine is from Hemptique that I purchased at Marshalls. The Pink Trim around the heart is from my stash. The pink Velvet Ribbon is from Michaels. The Postmark was stamped using an image from Recollections. After putting the card together, I decided to add a hand drawn heart for the bird to hold.
