Birthday card for a dear friend

Hello everybody! I'm back again with another Magnolia card. It's a birthday card that I made for my very dear friend.

As I said, this card was made for my very good friend, so it includes quite a few of her favourite things - Tilda, kitty, stars, red colour just to name a few. ;) For this card I used papers from My mind's eye and some yellow and white cardstock.

I stamped the image on neenah paper and coloured it with pencils (just regular school pencils, nothing fancy). This tilda is from the Love from Paris stamp set. You rock is a Gummiapan stamp.

I decorated the card with some lace, star sequins, berries and handmade flowers. I also added some die cuts.

I made these flowers using the red and green foamiran and stamens. In case you want to see the tutorial on those please click here.

So much from me today. Have a wonderful day!

Wishing you rainbows and eternal happiness

Hello everybody! Ha, three posts in a row. I bet you didn't see this coming. lol I'm actually late with this card - it should have been posted on my blog on September 1. But I mixed the themes so I had to make something new. *ooops* So, without even further delay, here's my card for this month's challenge at The Sketchy Challenges

The theme this month is "Across the miles/Travel". You are probably scratching your head thinking what does this card have to do with the theme. Well, see that adorable mousey with the balloon? In my head that balloon is the mouse's transportation and it carries it far away to the person who is getting this card in the mail to wish them a very happy birthday. ;) I mean, surely you can travel somewhere far with a balloon, right? Especially if you are a mouse. :P

I kept this card pretty simple. I layered different coloure cardstock and then on top I used some design paper from my stash. In the center I made a shaker and filled it with pretty yellow and blue heart shaped sequins. I fuzzy cut the mice and glued them on top of the shaker. Then I just added some pearls in the other two corners.

Mice are clear stamps from CC designs. I coloured these cuties with pencils. Unfortunately you can't see this in the picture, but I covered the balloon with Wink of Stella, so it's really sparkly in person.

So much from me today. I hope you will come play with us at The Sketchy Challenges. You can win a wonderful prize from our generous sponsor if you do. Just saying... ;)

Have a colourful day! xx

Simple foamiran flowers

Hello everybody! I'm back with another tutorial on how to make these simple foamiran flowers.

To make these flowers I used red and green foamiran, white stamens for the center and Rosy Dot AC3 dies. All of these things are available at Magnolia-licious store. If you like these flowers and want to learn how to make them yourself just watch the video bellow.

Have a beautiful day!

I'd like to enter my flowers to the foolowing challenge:
As you like it: Favourite non-card project (I like to make my own flowers because I can make them in any size I want and in pretty much any colour I want so that they go nicely with the paper)

Back to school or Christmas?

Hey everybody! Things finally settled down here a bit and my crafty corner is more or less done, so I finally got to do some crafting. :) I think I will be very busy crafting in the following months, because I need to stack up on Christmas and birthday cards. Eeek! I've already made a few, bot not even remotely as many as I need. What about you? Have you started making Christmas cards yet?

Anyways, a new monthly challenge just started at Magnolia-licious blog and while the main theme is "back to school", we also have an "anything goes" option. As you are about to see I chose this one - I will take any "excuse" I can get to make Christmas cards. He he.

I decided to colour this adorable Christmas Tilda from Christmas party 2017 collection. I stamped the image on neenah white solar paper and did the colouring with pencils. 

Papers are from Maja Design Celebration collection. The music notes paper is an actual music paper from back when I was still going to music school (which was looooong ago lol). The big lace is from my stash and the "smaller" lace is from Magnolia-licious store.

I hope you will come play with us. :) Have a beautiful day! xx
