Monday,December 11, Tilda with Umbrella Daisy

December 10, 2017

This little beauty was done by Karen Balcanoff. She has coloured in Tilda with Umbrella Daisy with Copic Markers. She has used random paper bought from Hobby Lobby, and SU paper as well. Have a look at how Karen has cut out all the petals from the daisy and layered them! It looks just adorable.
Karen, thank you so much for sharing with us today.

New in the store are some of the cutest stamp sets! These are stamps that were made for Magnolia Day. There are 4 sets available. These stamps come completely unmounted, just rubber. These are so easy to use, especially if you have a Misti or a Tim Holtz Platform. You can also just use cheap glue sticks, put some on the stamp and stick it to your acrylic block, then put your paper on a foam stamping sheet, or even a piece dollar store foam, and stamp your image. For cleaning the stamp and block, just use a baby wipe.

Here are the sets available for preorder


With Love from Paris

Oh, isn't this card just adorable. Poor Tilda has hurt herself and has a bandage around her leg. Tilda in Heart Pockets is from the new Get Well Collection 2017, and can be found here. Rene has done a beautiful job colouring her image, I love those rosy cheeks. The Get Well Saying is perfect for this card, and can be found here.

Thank you so much for sharing with us today Rene!!

Shawn called to let me know that the Christmas Party Collection was mailed out this morning and should be in soon! You all know these are coming from Sweden, so it could take a bit of time, but at least they will be here before Christmas!  You can still pre-order this collection here.

Wednesday Dec.6th - Foamiran Wednesday

December 06, 2017

We are in for a treat today! Ivy has created the cutest little card/decoration using Magnolia Stamps and Foamiran! She has also created a step by step tutorial for us! I can't believe how beautiful this is! I am truly blown away by the creativity on our Design Team. This is Ivy's first post featuring Foamiran. We will be featuring this every Wednesday.

Here is the tutorial for you,

Cut 2 of the larger template and 1 of the small template. You can use the Whimsy Stamps Poinsettia Die but at this moment in time I haven’t got them. If you have any poinsettia dies, you can do the same 

Use a craft iron or normal iron and mine is on Cotton setting, each iron may vary so it’s best to test it first. The petal will curl, then I do a concertina fold and roll it between my fingers

 Continue to do this to all the petals and they will look like this 

Then I gently unfold the petal only on the wider part and use a ball tool on a sponge and press until it looks like this 

 Do this to all the petals


Put a drop of hot glue to the centre - domed petals up - and off-set the next petals on top and the same to the smaller petals.

Use a 5mm ball tool or a wooden stick and press down on a sponge

Then I used a pokey tool to make a hole in the centre for the stamens 

I used about 10 double-head stamens and pushed them through 

I put hot glue on the back side of stamens to secure them and trimmed off the excess stalk. You can have your poinsettia as it is. I made mine shabby by adding some glitter paint but it’s optional, it’s my style 😊

Hope you like them.

Ivy, we love your poinsettias, thank you so much for the step out totorial! If you are interested in purchasing any of the items needed to make these gorgeous flowers, I will post links below.

Shawn has so many different colours of foamiran in stock now, and some beautiful new berries and micro bead stamens! Have a look.

Have a beautiful day and thank you for stopping by,
