All About Magnolia Challenge

Hello everyone I'm here today with my 2nd post, scroll down for my Noor Design Uk DT post.

So I'm here today with a new DT card for a new DT........can you see the badge on the side ;-) Yeah I'm back with All About Magnolia & I'm sooooooo excited to be back with these fabulous ladies & working with my favourite stamps & dies!!

Ok so this months challenge is right on cue with October.........
AUTUMN easy one dont you think.
Well mine wasnt as my Mojo disappeared....darn thing, I've looked in all the cupboards & all the drawers & still I cannot find it :-( 
This theme made me root through my papers.....normally I just have a few go to selections lol. However I rooted through some of my older 12x12 sheets for this.
The top sheet is My Minds Eye which I brought when I first started crafting.....yep years I've had it lol, its so sparkly & glittery IRL. Its called 'Sundress Bloom' from the Laundry Line collection.
The bottom orangey sheet is Riddersholm Design Huntington Garden 'Tea Room'.
The green leaves are Maja Design Gift For You.

This dark shade is the reverse of Tea Room & I used it for 'Lovely Fence' doohickey (my fave fence die). The little mushrooms are from Doohickey club set 9.
The Leaves are from Doohickey club set 11 & I inked the edges then squished them a little to give them a crinckled look.

A while ago I brought the Doohickey Mushroom die on a VERY VERY good price from Amazon UK.....yeah I've finally used it lol.
I've also added a Kraft mini bag & 2 Magnolia tags inside, one with the word 'Thanks' made with my Dymo.

The tree die is also Magnolia which I got the same time as the mushrooms, I cut it out 3 times in Kraft card & layered them up & added Paris Nights Lamp-Post.
The leafy frame that you see in Kraft & another layered on top is from Magnolia Doohickey club set 11......this is the first time I've used it but love it already & will be using it MORE!!

The frame Tilda is on is Little Darling Fancy Rectangle die.....I LOVE these dies!! Tilda herself is an older one & I cannot remember the name of her :-( If anyone knows could you please tell me....thank you in advance. The stamping around her is done with a stempelglede stamp.

Pop on over to here to see my uber talented teamies who have done this challenge proud!! Yeah their mojo is NOT hiding somewhere thats for certain ;-)

Hello everyone how are you all?
I'm here today to show you some new goodies that Tracy has recently added to her store, she has added lots of yumminess!!
Here is 'Birthday Belle' by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps & she is so pretty & you gotta love her swishy dress ;-)
I coloured her with distress ink refills & markers.
The papers are Maja Design Vintage Romance........all links at the bottom of this post :-)
Birthday beele was cut out using Little Darlings Fancy Rectangle die & I added shabby frantage around her.

I added double bow with some gorgeous seam binding that Tracy shabbies up ;-) & a gorgeous bit of bling.....every girl needs bling ;-)
Have you also seen that beautiful lace........its called Lace Christelle & its so much prettier in real life than it shows here!!

Another of Tracy's recent adds to her store are these awesome Whimsy Bold Banners sentiment stamps & matching dies.......OMGoodness I love these!!
I stamped it in a mixture of inks....first fired brick but then stamped it then with the remaining on I then added Pumice Stone & stamped the matches her dress a bit now dont you think.
I used the larger die to cut out the bottom layer in the matching paper & popped it onto foam pads for dimension.

Added gorgeous flowers & some pretty Gypsophila. I've also added a white mini bag & added a blank tag in there for write something special....added an eyelet & some pink wax cord.

Inisde is decorated to compliment the front as always. On the right side I've made up 2 different kinds of flowers with dies from Noor Design UK (links at the bottom of post) & also added a button to the middle of the smaller flower. I also added Cheesecloth in between the 2 layers of paper.

Thats it from me why not pop on over to Noor Design UK to look at all that yumminess I was telling you about.
Also you can pre-order Pion's Halloween papers now, I'm not a huge halloween person but I'm getting them all as 90% of the papers can be used all year round.....come on who doesnt like purples & oranges........they are gorgeous papers!! Get em while you can ;-)
