Stamp Something and Just Magnolia

Hi All!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a great week and is looking forward to the upcoming weekend. I know I'm excited for some family time and relaxing!

Today, I have 2 cards to share with you. The first one is for Just Magnolia. I was asked to be a guest designer for the month of August and of course I said YES! I love these sweet little images and the DT is so super talented, I'm just honored to be working with them!

This week the challenge is a sketch by the lovely Martine. This was a great sketch to work with, it's different and fun and I know I'll use it again sometime.

My card uses this sweet Tilda sitting and I've colored her with Copics in various shades of purple to match my papers. The papers are SU! cardstock in Almost Amethyst and Elegant Eggplant and the designer papers are BasicGrey Wisteria. I distressed all the edges with my scissors. The embellishments here are buttons and gems, a metal wire heart, and Prima flowers with more gems.

This is photo is to show you the complete tag with the whole image. This card also fits the challenges at Daring Cardmakers, which was bejeweled blitz, but I think I might be too late with my entry. I certainly have a bit of bling on this card!

My next card is for this week's Stamp Something challenge. This week we want to see your Charmed Somethings! Make a creation using a charm of some sort on your project. If you don't have a charm, be creative and make your own. One lucky winner will receive a gift certificate from Quixotic Paperie, this week's sponsor! Head over there now and check out all the details and the fabulous DT samples!

This is my charmed something using this cute Mermaid Emma image from Fred She Said. I've colored her with Copics and added some glitter accents with my Spica glitter pens in gold and clear. I cut the image out and popped her up on foam tape. The papers are some freebies I got from Shabby Princess. I've never downloaded paper before, what fun! I accented this card with a Prima flower and gem flower, some sea shells, little sea themed pins, and ribbon with my charm tied on with hemp twine.

This card fits the challenges at:
Cupcake Craft: Beachy
Creative Card Crew: Under the Sea
Fresh Batch: sketch
Daring Cardmakers: Bejeweled Blitz
Digital Tuesday: Bling

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great weekend! I'll see you back here on Sunday with a new challenge from Pile It On! Happy stamping! :)
