Magnolia Down Under Challenge #113

This is my first time joining in the Magnolia Down Under Challenges. What a lovely sketch this week! And good timing as I had to make a card for my son’s 4th birthday tomorrow. When I saw the tag element I thought it would be nice to write down some of his favourite things. Since I hardly scrapbook anymore, I might have to start including a tag or journalling note in every birthday card from now on :).

Stamps: Magnolia Edwin with Bike, Magnolia Sweet Rainbow Bird Background
Colouring tools: Copic Sketch markers
Cardstock, patterned paper and punches: SU

Thanks for looking!

TOMIC Challenge #15 Chocolate!

Who could resist a challenge involving chocolate? This week’s TOMIC challenge is to use brown and cream with a chocolate theme. My Magnolia stamp collection is rapidly increasing, but I don’t yet have a cooking-related stamp, so I used the Tilda Strawberry Yummy stamp. Look closely and you’ll see Tilda’s basket contains chocolate-dipped strawberries – I hope that counts! I’ve also used the wonderful Magnolia Vintage Daisies Doohickey Die and inked the daisy petal edges using SU Chocolate Chip ink. There is a little bit of Hero Arts cream lace too.

Stamps: Magnolia Strawberry Yummy Tilda
Colouring tools for image: Copic Sketch markers
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: SU Chocolate Chip, Vanilla & Kraft.
Lace: Hero Arts
Paper, Eyelet Punch, Circle Cutter and Gemstones: SU.

TOMIC Challenge #13 School & Metal

A quick one for this week’s TOMIC challenge – my youngest son starts preschool next year so I made a tag for his calico library bag. I don’t have any school-theme Magnolia stamps (yet ;)), so just went for this cute Sherwood Edwin one instead! Hopefully this colourful tag will help Liam spot his library bag easily. Here it is tied on:

Stamps: Magnolia Sherwood Edwin
Colouring tools: Copic markers
Cardstock, ribbon & metal embellishments: Stampin Up
Patterned paper: Kaisercraft
Rub-ons: Making Memories
