Anything but a card Challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central

Hello Friends,

It is my turn to host a challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central Blog and I’m proposing to do different creation this fortnight so I’d love to see ANYTHING BUT A CARD. 

As we do cards all the time let’s now decorate  a box, bag, tin, notebook , book marker etc.. you use your imagination

I received a white wooden box from a friend few months ago and thought would be nice to decorate it so I could keep nice things in it..

So here it is:

Oh you see, this time I used a different image than
Magnolia Stamps lol lol.
Do you know this one?  It is called 
Heidi from C.C Design Stamps and she is available for sale at Stamping Scrapping Online Store.

Check a closer view on the image:


Isn’t she cute?  This is my first time using a C.C Design Stamps and I love it.. so easy to color…
I colored her with
copic markers, decorate the box pink rhinestones, white flower is from Prima and ribbons & papers are from my stash.

So now, come on over and play with us.  You will have a chance to win an awesome prize offered by our sponsor Stamping Scrapping .

Tilda with Violin

Hello Friends,

I hope your weekend is great so far!!

This morning I decided to color few images to pratice coloring a little bit as I'm taking Suzanne Dean's classes. The technique I tried was shading hair and wood.

I picked Tilda with Violin image because I thought would be easy for shading but I was wrong.. it is very tricky to color the dress and have the right shades... Well, this one my first one and I'm not happy with it but it is the first try.

Now, hair and wood  coloring are fine... I liked how those looked like!!!

So, here goes my card:

OK, as I had colored this image I decided to make a card with it so, I'm going to participate in few challenges. They are:

- Just Magnolia:  sentiment
- The Sweet Stop:  sketch
- So Desafios:  Flowers and Leaves

In the end I liked how the card turned out.. I think it is because I made it on my fave color, purple!! lol...

OK Ladies, let me know what you think about it!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

So Desafios Blog = desafio nr.5

Ola a Todas!!
Hoje tem um novo desafio no Blog Só Desafios onde o desafio é fazer um cartao no formato Easel, ou seja, Cavalete.

Eu adoro fazer cartão neste modelo, além de fácil fica super lindo....

Para a imagem eu usei Kissing Edwin Sitting  e a Tilda que infelizmente não me lembro o nome do carimbo.  Usei a tecnica masking!

Voce pode adquirir os carimbos Magnolia comigo através do meu blog Mad About Magnolias.

Tenho vários carimbos pronta entrega e se voce não encontrar algum carimbo que queira, me envie um email que eu posso encomendar para voce!

Bem, falando mais sobre o cartão, a imagem eu colori com as canetas copics, os papeis eu ganhei de presente de uma amiga, decorei com bailarina quadrada dourada e usei tambem flower soft para fazer a grama.

Veja de mais perto o efeito do flower soft!

Vou aproveitar e participar do desafio no blog Magnolia Down Under que é fazer um easel card.

Vou deixar aqui um link para um video excelente de como fazer o cartão cavalete, ele está em ingles, mas fica muito facil de aprender apenas acompanhando o video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QPHOkRukeQ

Participando do desafio #4 voce poderá ganhar um exemplar da revista Magnolia Ink.

Aguardo a participação de voces!



Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge - using Edwin

Hello Magnolia Lovers,

Today is my turn  to show you a card for  the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge that is to use a Edwin.
I must confess I  don't use Edwins so much as it is too hard for me to make a masculine card, so this was a quite challing for me too!

Anyway, I used 909 ROSE EDWIN from Magnolia Stamps that are in stock right now at Stamping Scrapping.

To color my image I used copcis markers and added silver rounded brads and DP, both are from my stash.
I decided to use this week's sketch from Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog to help me out.. so I'm entering this card into their challenge.

Now, don't forget, you have till this saturday, 14th, to join us and be elegible to win a prize from our Sponsor, Stampin Scrapping.

Thanks for stopping by today!
