Last Mimi of the season

Had to show you the card I made with my last stamped image from the PB Mimi's Christmas clear set. I just had to much fun with these this season. I used an older Mojo sketch and Basic Grey Wassail paper. Can't believe Christmas is just around the corner.Its hard to find time to blog and get around to see what everyone is doing so my apoligies for not commenting as much as I should.

Hangler Christmas

I'm so happy to get my hands on some cute little Hangler images, my friend Lisa was nice enough to stamp for me. I made this just before the retreat but got the flu so was not feeling like posting until now. Its always fun to play with something new.

I wanted this card to have a folk artsy feel and think the bit of distressing and the jute help pull this off.I followed an older Mojo Monday sketch. I've really been having some creative fun with them lately even though I've not been able to get them done in time to post them for their challenges.

Just Magnolia week#81

This week the challenge at Just Magnolia Week#81 was to use the lovely sketch Donalda made. It was a bit of a challenge for me to use as I am a very linear person and don't usually use a lot of angles on my cards, but that's why they call it a challenge right.

I used the new Midnight Frost paper collection from Bo Bunny and this cute little Magnolia Snowman. He's very glittery although it doesn't really show in the picture.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving your comments-Hugs Tania

Friday Sketchers#128

Thought I'd have a go at the Friday Sketchers Challenge #128 this week as I loved the sketch. This is the first time that I've tried the paper piecing technique. My friend Debbie uses this technique with great results, but man I found it really time consuming (do like the results though.

I'm still in arush to get enough cards for Christmas but am about half way done Yeh! So there should be quite a few posts this next little while. Hope everyone has a great week-Hugs Tania

Penny Black Saturday Challenge week #127

This week the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for Week #127 was the theme All my Favorite things. I chose my winter time favorite Snowflakes, just can never have to many different kinds. Here's what I came up with I used an new Penny Black Stamp my friend Debbie let me stamp at crop night a couple of weeks ago. This cutie is just so cheery looking and fun to work with.

I spent a long time looking around the web for the perfect poem to put on the inside but came up with nothing that was quite what I wanted to say. I ended up writing this myself a little scary but I think it turned out quite fitting.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend-Hugs Tania

The snowflakes in the middle are from a MS border punch. You can never have to many snowflakes. Hope everyone is okay Hugs Tania

A to late to enter Cute Card Thursday

This is the card I made last weekend using the sketch from CCT.Unfortunately I haven't been able to post it until now because I tweaked my back at work on Monday and Couldn't manage to sit comfortably at the computer long enough to post it. Fortunately a few trips to the massage Therapist has done amazing things and I can now sit! I'm hoping I might even be able to sit long enough to make a card this weekend.

I used Basic Grey Wassail papers and a stamp from Stampavie from the Gillian Roberts Collection. I used a Martha Stewart Border and corner punch set to make the snowflake Border.

The image is coloured with copics R27,R89,G99,G85,G82,E000,E02,E95,E74,E40,E44,E53,Y21,E37,E35,E33,E31,E95,E00,E21

Hope everyone has a great weekend-Hugs Tania

Tilda has gone Skiing!

This is my weekend project. I thought I'd have a little fun with skiing Tilda and a couple of my background stamps to create a cute little winter scene in the form of a stair step card. I just love creating scenes for my cards. I think its my favourite technique although the colouring takes a long time, its so worth it.

I used so many copics for this that it would take way to long to list although I have a new idea on how to show them which I will try next post.

Hope everyone has a good week, thanks so much for stopping by your comments mean so much.-Hugs Tania

Magnolia With Lantern Card#2

No gremlins in the camera tonight so I can finally post this.

For this card I used the sketch from last weeks Mojo Monday. Its to late to enter of course but I really wanted to try it anyway. I used a different size than I normally use for this card(5x7) its getting so hard to find envelopes for the square cards and this size seems to work well for the Magnolia's so I will be making more.

It also uses more of the traditional Christmas colours which I don't normally work with but I like it. Copic reds are a little more difficult to work with and get the highlights right, but I'm learning a little more each time I do.

Thanks for stopping by today. As I make more Christmas cards I keep getting more ideas so I will keep them coming -Hugs Tania

Tilda With Lantern Easel Card

I've been waiting to play with this image I stamped from a friend for a long time and I've really been having fun with it! This is the first card I made with it, I really like the Melissa Francis DP with it. I had a copic list for it al made out but unfortunatly its up on my desk and hubby is sleeping...

I added lots of snowflakes because as many of you know i just love them and added the sentiment from Penny Black. Hope everybody had a Happy Thanksgiving. Will hopefully be back tomorrow with the second card. I couldn't seem to upload it tonight seems there's Gremlins in my camera playing a few tricks on me.

Stampavie Cutie!

I had to save my favorite card from the retreat until last. I just love this stamp! I was so excited when I bought until I stamped it and realized I'd never coloured anything like it before, it was a little intimidating. I think it turned out okay though. The paper is Bo Bunny, Stampavie Stamp-Laurence Design, colouring is with copics.

Hope everyone has a great week, thanks for stopping by- Hugs Tania

My Take on Cute Card Thursday Challenge #171

This week over at Cute Card Thursday challenge #171 the challenge was to use the sketch provided by Leann. It was quite simple so it left lots of room to add a few extras.I once again used paper from Bo Bunny and this time used a new PB image, being a Christmas card it had to have some glitter too!

The image is coloured with water colour pencils and Copics. I added some punched snowflakes for a little pizzaz.Thanks for stopping by-Hugs Tania

I really hope we can do it again next year.

On to the card the image is a Stampavie Penny Johnson Design that is just too cute! The DP is from the new Bo Bunny line called Winter Joy that we found at Memories & More in Westbank.

I coloured the image with Copics R29 R89 E44 E74 BG0000 BG72 G85 D82 E35 E31 E37 E95 E02 E00 E21

PB Birthday Card

Just wanted to show you a Birthday card I made a couple of weeks ago that was a custom ordered card for P's husdand's Birthday.Thanks P it always feels good when someone thinks enough of your work to leave a comment or buy a card! This is a stamp I bought a long time ago but hadn't inked yet, I don't have many stamps that work for masculine cards but think it works okay. Its coloured with water colour pencils and the paper is from Close to My Heart.

I'm off for a weekend of fun with a great group of girls at a B&B. Hope everyone has a great weekend thanks for stopping by-Hugs Tania

Magnolia Christmas Card #3

We've had perfectly awful weather here this weekend, what a good excuse to have a little indoor fun. I started this card at the Scrapbooking Swede Crop on Friday night but didn't have the stamps I needed to finish it there so I finished today.

I wanted to try something different so I cut away some of the front side of the card so that you could see the inside. I like the way it added some dimension.To get the the falling snow on the inside layer I sponged over punched out snow flakes.

Can't wait for next weekends Girls getaway its like waiting for Christmas teehee. Hope to get some more Christmas cards done there. Have a great week-Hugs Tania

Just Magnolia week #69 Let's get Sentimental

Wow I can't believe that summer is almost over and I haven't managed a post the whole time. What a busy, busy summer its been. With horse shows, the garden, Taxi service for the kids and Company, I just haven't found any energy to be creative. I'm just finishing a weeks holiday so thought that I would indulge myself and create a little something with some scraps I found when I cleaned off my scrap booking desk, and it fits quite nicely with the Just Magnolia challenge #69.

I'm sorry that there is no copic list for this one, it was colored a long time ago. The sentiment which I just love is a Cling Stamp from Stampendous.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Hugs Tania

Good Things!

Well I made it to the weekend. TeeHee mine starts early this week as I'm off to Cloverdale for my daughters first miniature horse show of the season. The weather is finally supposed to be nice and is supposed to last all weekend, yeh!

Had a little fun the other day colouring this very elegant Tilda. Not sure if all of the colours go together but I am still loving this Cappella Paper by Basic Grey. Had hoped to get around to doing a lot more challenges this week, but here we are at the end of it. So will have to try to do a few more next week.Have a great weekend-Hugs Tania

My First Try at the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge

I really liked Sem's Sketch for Sunday Sketch and Stamp #29.

So I thought I would use it to make an Anniversary that I needed. I like how it turned out although I did add some extra Embellishments to it. I used a Sarah Kay image that I coloured a while ago, so it came together pretty quickly.Unfortunatly I don't remember which Copics I used.Hope everyone has a great week, thanks for stopping by.-Hugs Tania

Fairy Wishes

Well I really did it when I coloured this image. I rarely colour an image without knowing what paper I'm going to use it with. I made an exception when I coloured this one, I was so excited to play with this new stamp at our White Lake Retreat that just picked colours I loved. When I got it home wouldn't you quess I couldn't find one piece of paper in my stash that worked with it.

So off to the scrapbook store I went...and I fell in love with Basic Greys new line Capella. I just love it with Magnolias and in particularly the Princess' and Fairies in this collection.

I added some gold embossed stamping and a few hand made flowers to finish it off.Thanks stopping by Have a great weekend Hugs Tania

First Christmas card of the year

Had a great crop day this last Saturday with our group of scrappy girls at White Lake(near Salmon Arm). Peggy Tole organized it and brought her store Stamp Paper Glue . I finally managed to get my hands on Bo Bunny's wonderful line of papers called Jazmyne and can't wait to make some cards.

I didn't accamplish much in the way of paper crafting, crops are more a social thing for me. We had a lovely picnic lunch and Peggy made a wonderful Lasagna supper so yummy.

Oh I guess I should mention the card. Its features the Tilda & Edwin Skating stamp with the pond background. Its coloured with copics, I used liquid Pearls for the snow on the trees and rocks. I sprayed Smooch Spritz on the pond to give it an icy sheen, to bad it doesn't show well in the pic. The snowflakes have Twinklets Diamonds Dust on them to make them icy.I also put flocking on the trim of the coats.


Have a great day thanks for visiting-hugs Tania

Magnolia Mother's Day

First off my appoligies for not being in blog land for quite some time, its going to take a while to get around your wonderful blogs. My husband had some health issues that required surgery and recovery time, but all is good now. I've just been away for a wonderful weekend with the girls and came back all inspired and ready to go again. Thanks for organizing such a relaxing weekend "M".

I just had to use this cutie for a card to my Mom for Mother's Day. The sentiments are from Stampin' Up, Paper is Basic Grey, Flowers are punched with an EK success punch, lace is from Dollarama, got to love all the stuff you can get there for a $1. I used copics to color the image.

Hope Mom likes it. I'm of to check out some of your blogs can't wait to see all your wonderful stuff!-Hugs Tania

Penny Black Saturday Challenge week#95

Hope everyone had a great Easter! I had a really nice one although it was busy I managed to squeeze in a card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The challenge this week is checked papers and ribbons etc. and I really had to dig to find this piece of paper. Its an older K&Co. print. The Bear is Penny Black and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The flowers are from K&Co.

I had fun with this card, nice to do a simpler one for a change and to get back into using my Penny Blacks as I've been playing with my copics and Magnolia's so much lately.Thanks for looking Hugs Tania

Just MagnoliaChallenge #48

Well we made it to the middle of the week again. I'm lucky this week I've managed to get an extra long weekend so my week is over and my weekend starts yeh! It took me a while to get this card together using the sketch for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge and I'm really not sure that it stayed completely true to the sketch. I really like the cheeriness the yellow gives it. I don't usually work with yellows but I might have to have another go cause I think its growing on me.

I'll wish everyone a Happy Easter now in case I don't get on here again over the weekend-Hugs Tania
