Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge #11


Hello Magnolia Lovers,
I hope everyone is ok!
Today is my turn to show a card that I made for Summer Theme Challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge Blog.
Oh boy, I had so many stamps I could use and was so hard just to pick one.. So I decided to get this yummiee Tilda one and the Shabby Chic Fence. I colored them with copics ciao markers and on the ice cream I added a little bit of copic spicas
Check a closer view:
004I used flower soft on the grass.. the regular and ultra fine one..  on the top of the fence I added 2 Magnolia Vintage Roses.
Take a look at other angle:
006 - Cópia Background papers  and silk blue ribbon were in my stash, I used a Marta Stewart punches on the white and blue pieces of papers and blue rhinestones for some more sparkle on my card.
I hope you can get a little bit of inspiration with my card and come on over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers and play with us.
Cindy, our sponsor from Stamping Scrapping is offering a prize for a lucky winner!  So, why not to join??
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek on my card!  I really appreciate!

New card!!

004Hi Friends,

I’ve joined a mingle swap in a new group that I joined and I have to send a card to this lovely Lady that is absolutely crazy about Bears!!.

I joined a image swap at Magnolia Stamp Lovers  a while back and I received this image in my pack.  I had never seen this bear before and  I think it is so cute!!!
So as this friend loves Bear then nothing better than send a card to her with this Bear on it… don’t you think!?!?
By now, you already know who you are…  lol lol

I also want to join this week  challenge at Magnolia-licous with a sketch, Just Magnolia with hot or spicy, Crafty Angel with  Teal & Brown. Cutie Sunday with freestyle and  Magnolia Down Under with Flowers.

So I had to use a Magnolia stamp image.. one more thing.. I absolutely adore Magnolia Stamps… so it is just all perfect to me!!

Ok, that said let me give you some details of my card:

I couldn't find the name of this stamp, so if you know, please, let me know too!! I color the image with copic markers, see a closer view:

007Background papers are from Basic grey, flowers on below Bear are Magnolia Vintage Roses and on the top are  from my stash.


  Sentiment is some alphabetic stamps that I have and I added flower soft on it… I really love the result. Check out a closer view:





I guess that is all I have to tell about my card!
I want to thank you for stopping by today and if you can, please, leave a little comment about my card! I appreciate reading it!

I wish you a wonderful Sunday!

But just before starting getting my stamps and coloring them I want to show you a card I made last night.  This card goes to a friend in USA for her birthday!!

I never make cards in blue color for girls but after seeing a lovely card  for the house mouse challenge blog yesterday I got inspiration.. Thank you Tini.. I still have to come back to you blog and leave a little love for you!!

Anyway, my blue colors are not like hers but they were the ones I had.. so I managed to get a card in blue hihihi

I got the Magnolia - 401 LOVE MUFFIN image that I received from Anary, this super talented Gal and colored it with my copic markers... on the heart bits I put a little bit of  glitz stickles and I have also add stickles around the rectangle.
