A Sweet Magnolia Couple and a Mixed Media Snowman
I have officially become addicted now! This is my third Magnolia card, and I can't wait to make more! I found a fun challenge called the Marvelous Magnolia (#41 - Lovely Layers) Challenge and they have levels you can enter depending on how experienced you are with Magnolias. Isn't that fun? This week the challenge is all about layers and I have a bunch of them on this card. My papers are from SU! and The Paper Studio, my stars are from Hobby Lobby's mini tree embellishments, the gems are from Recollections, the ribbon is some Christmas Tulle from Hobby Lobby, and the little bow at the top is from the wrapping around Allie's blanket (she gave it to me today when we moved her into her dorm - I feel like I have added just a little bit of her to this card - yes, I have tears in my eyes as I type this - so hard to know all your babies have grown up - sniff).
I also made another card today with a little piece of that blanket wrapping Allie gave me. It is for the Mixed Media Challenge at Split Coast Stampers. The challenge is to use fabric and two different kinds of media. I used some cotton fabric, my treasured little ribbon from the blanket wrapping, one of my favorite snowmen images (stamped with Stazon Black ink),Modge Podge, ink, marker, Martha Stewart paint, SU! Dazzling Diamonds, and Martha Stewart Crackling Medium. The papers are some old papers from Creative Memories and The Paper Studio. My die cuts are from SU! and my punch is from McGill.
I really like this technique and I think I will do it again soon!
Hope you weekend is going well! Hugz!
