Dreaming of Summer


Magnolia-licious Challenge

Hope you all had a good New Year and Xmas Holiday shame it has to end I expect lots of you are back to work today. I have just looked out of the window and have seen we have a covering of snow so maybe some of you will be unable to get to work :).

This is the first time I have joined the Magnolia-licious Challenge, but I just couldn't resist the theme it was to make a frame card and inspired by the uber talented Claudia Rosa, she has a fabulous tutorial on her blog on making this great style of card,you can find the tutorial Here.



Well with all this snow and Ice Cold weather I thought it was time I bought you some sunshine, so her is Tilda enjoying her Summer Hols at the Seaside. The Background Stamp and Sailor Tilda where released this Summer, I have only used them both once before, too many stamps not enough time :(. The images have been coloured with distress inks. I have had a couple of goes at colouring Tilda with Copics but I just think she looks best with the DI's.



The Paper is by Magnolia and just seemed to fir this image to perfection, I have used another of my new Martha Stewart Border Punches to edge the frame.


The Flowers are as usual from Wild Orchid Crafts.





It is my dear Grandson Ben's 5th birthday tomorrow and as he is a big fan of Mario Cart I thought this fabulous little boy stamp from Lili of the Valley would suit him down to the ground.



I have used Copics and Prismas to colour the image, the papers are Basic Grey, it is so hard to make a card with no embellies, but I know he would not be impressed with flowers and ribbons I can just here him go URGHHHHHH!!!!!



Thanks for looking
Hugs

Hi Jacqui,
I love both cards, but I adore the boy card, my son will be 4 on 17th January and I wanted this stamp for him too as he loves playing his big brothers games consoles. But Lili Of The Valley have sold out boo hoo!
I love the colours of your card and the layout. Yor Tilda card is gorgeous and the colours are great.
Keep safe and warm
Happy crafting

Love this first card, so beautiful. Very jealous of your snow, we have blue skies and sunshine here (if I ignore the freezing cold and look at the sea out the window I could almost forget I'm only in Wales and convince myself I'm somewhere much more tropical!!!!)
Big Happy Birthday wishes for Ben, li'l Horror's a Mario Kart addict too, I think this card'll defintely be a hit with the Birthday Boy!
