Magnolia-Licious ~ Ready for Spring?

Hi Friends,

I have a super fun project for you today. I have said many times that my first love has always been Magnolia brand products so when I met the owners of Magnolia-licious and was given the opportunity to work with them I jumped at the opportunity.

Today's card is showcasing this adorable Tilda stamp from the "2017 Get Well Collection"


For my coloring I chose to use Copic Markers. Here were my color choices:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21
Hair: YR20, YR21, YR24
Clothes: B91, B93, B95, R32, R37, R39

I have used a bunch of fun dies with this design. "The Old Oak" Doohickey die was used for the Tree but for the leaves and the grass I used the leaves from "The Fruit Tree" Doohickey die. The Lady But and the Logs came from Doohickey Kit #16. Have you heard about the Doohickey Exclusive Kits? This is an limited time club offered ever so often. You can see which current kits are currently available HERE.

I hope I have inspired you to pick up those stamps and dies today and get creating. There is no better therapy. God Bless! Melanie

LDRS Creative ~ A New Idea With the Lock-itz Dies


Hi Everyone! Today I am here with you to share a new idea for when your playing around with your Lock-Itz dies. These dies are actually ON SALE right now just in case you haven't checked them out before.
______________________
 
 
The Lock-Itz die line is designed to actually lock together in the center of the card. See them HERE. What I have done is die cut them from white cardstock then I trimmed them down so that there is a straight edge rather than having the "locking" edge. Then I put the straight edge along the outer sides of the card.
 
 
Once your pieces are trimmed then glue them to a patterned paper of your choice and trim around the edge of the Lock-Itz die. In this project the paper used is from our Polkadoodles Line and is titled "Pretty Perfect"
 
LDRS Creative Supply List:
Here is a detailed photo so you can see the beautiful edge. I really love how elegant this card turned out.
 

I hope this project has helped you think outside the box when designing your next project. Dies can be used in so many beautiful ways. Just a little imagine can transform your projects
Make sure to check out our Clearance sections in both stamps & dies.


Thank you for letting me inspire you today. Have a creative day!

Club La -La Land Crafts ~ Design Team Call.

Hi Friends,

I have something a little different to share with you. I have been a member of LaLa Lands Monthly Club since 2016 close to when it first began. Each month I receive a yummy package with not yet released stamps AND dies. Have you by chance ever seen LaLa Land's dies? If not you best go check them out. They are AMAZING!!!


With Feburary's Club Kit  we recieved the items above. I just recently submit my entry into their Design Team Call for the Monthly Club Team. This inspired me to pull out a recent kit and play. Oh my goodness this was fun to color.  Here is my project.

All dies except for the border die are from Feburary's Club Kit. The Triangle Lace Border was from the September 2016 Kit... See I've been a member forever - hahaha


Here is a close up of the amazing dies from La La Land. They are so intricuit and always die cut perfectly. For example those tiny die cut pieces in the Triangle Lace Border all poked out with one pass of the Big Shot. 


Here is a close up of my coloring. I used Copic Alcohol Markers in the following colors.

Skin E000, E00, E11, E21
Hair: W3, W5, W7
Bubbles: B000, B00
Acents: V00, V04, V06, V09
Wood: E13, E18, YR14, E15, E29

One last look.... 

I hope I have inspired YOU to dig out those Club Kits and play with them. I waited far too long.... This was such a fun project. Happy Coloring my friends! Melanie

What's Your Style?

Hi Friends,

Welcome back to Fairy Stamp Land. Today I have a really fun card to share with you. I was playing around with some of the brand new products from LDRS Creative. The Polkadoodle Versatile Doors & Window set  is super fun and the set has so many possibilities.

I begun by simply cutting the door die from some of this beautiful Country Lilacs also by Polkadoodles. I also used the dies to cut out the windows in the door. The little pieces that were cut from the door were adorable and I immediately thought they were shaped like bricks. So then I just cut a ton of them out and the rest is history. The house now has a brick wall behind it.



I've also used the fence die from the Lamp Post & Railing die set and of course the All Dressed Up stamp is from the "What's Your Style" stamp set.


 
Here is a close up of my coloring. I used Alcohol markers to color her and I fussy cut her out and used foam tape both with the door to create a shaker card but also with the colored image. The multiple layers really adds interest and dimension.

One last look.... I really love how this turned out and I hope I have helped inspire you to get those stamps and dies out and have a ton of fun with them!!! Melanie

LDRS Creative's Magical Slider Card Die Set

Hi Friends,

Today over on the Little Darlings Inspiration blog I have shared this brand new card design. I recently watched the LDRS YouTube Channel about using the "Magical Slider" card. Have you seen this die set? This set has so many possibilities and can accessorize all your other stamps and dies that you already have. Lets take a look at this Magical set.

 

  
When you watch the YouTube video below you will see what the slider card normally does. I did not have transparency film on hand so rather than it be a slider card where your top image is uncolored and your slider reveals the colored image I decided to use it to reveal the sentiment. I just love how it turned out. It fits an A2 size card too which is nice!


Along with the Magical Slider Card die set I also incorporated the Eleganza Stamp & Die set along with the Cotton Candy Paper Stack.





Here is a close up of my coloring. I used alcohol markers as my medium.

Magnolia-Licious Bunny Slippers

Hi Friends,

Today I have such an adorable card for you. Lately I've been noticing that I do not make many get well or sympathy cards so I decided to have this card be a "get well" type of card. I just love the Magnolia Bunny Slippers stamp from the Get Well Collection. I have colored her with Copics in muted tones to match this beautiful paper.

The paper I have used is Lemon Craft 6x6" Heart Painted Paper. Have you seen all the papers we carry over at Magnolia-Licious? They are all yummy.


For the dies I used dies that are from two different Magnolia Doohickey kits. The bunnies are from Magnolia Doohickey 8 and the balloons from Doohickey 5. These are exclusive kits which are only available for a limited time. So make sure to keep an eye out for the new limited time releases when they become available.  Currently Vol 19 & 20 are available for preorder HERE

I hope I have brought a little sunshine your world. Make something pretty today! Hugs, Melanie
