Joyful Stars Blog Hop - Merry and Bright Card!

Welcome to our monthly

Joyful Stars December Blog Hop!

You're on the right track if you've landed here from Betty's Blog! This hop is a circle of talented ladies, so be sure to continue hopping through all the blogs to see all the beautiful and ideas, especially if you've landed directly on here as your starting point.

Merry & Bright Card

Today I'd like to share with you a quick card, inspired by a fellow consultant I saw on YouTube.  I used the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge to make my card.  The card measures 5x7 when completed.  

I first set the Cricut to cut at 5 1/2 inches.  I cut my card base out of Colonial White, and then selected the 'Sentiment' setting and cut the 'Merry&Bright' selection twice (one out of Cranberry, and one out of Whisper card stock).   

Using a bone folder, I creased my card base (Colonial White) and then did the same for the Merry & Bright cut (Whisper).  I  inserted the card base into the Whisper cut and used the Bonding Memories glue to hold in place together.

I then used my paper trimmer and trimmed off the excess, leaving a 1/4 border around the Merry & Bright Cranberry card stock cut.  I then attached it to the top of the Whisper cut out (layered).

As a finishing touch, I embellished the ornaments with Bitty Sparkles.

This card was super easy and I hope you like it. Please remember to leave a comment.

New Magnolia Card Shares!

Hi there!

Tonight I was feeling the crafty mojo again, and made two new cards.  :)  I just love using the corrugated card bases from Michaels Arts and Crafts.

The stamped images are from Magnolia and then I colored them with my Copic Sketch Markers.  I cut them out with my Spellbinders dies and then used pop-dots to give them a little dimension.  I then used Stickles from Ranger Ink to add a little bling of course!  Additional embellishments like the pearls and rhinestones were from Michaels and Hobby Lobby.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy crafting!  ~ Evie ;)

Paper from Hobby Lobby and seahorses from K and Company.

Magnolia Wedding and Thank You Cards Share

Hi there!  It's been a long time since my last post...almost 7 months?!  Yikes.  I have been a little busy...  I've not been feeling well and it seems my craft mojo has been a little slow.
Well, this past weekend,  I finally got some crafty mojo flowing and even posted a video on YouTube.  😊

I used Copic markers to color my Magnolia Tilda stamp images.  The paper is from a Michaels Hot Purchase paper pack, and also from Hobby Lobby.  The Eiffel tower die cut is from Sizzix (Tim Holtz).  I hope you like them!  Thank you for stopping by!  ~ Evie  ;)

Magnolia Cards!

Hi Everybody!  My goodness, it's been much too long.  I finally got some creative mojo flowing, and decided to take a few minutes to record a video and take some snap shots of my newly created cards.

I am in love with the Magnolia stamps, and I finally, got the courage to start practicing coloring the images with Copic markers.  I started out watching YouTube tutorials (thanks to so many talented colorists that share their process) and before I knew it, I was coloring images!

I have a long way to go, but I'm really excited how these turned out!  I definitely got inspiration from Pinterest and on YouTube.  Right now, Nurse Larelle on YouTube is hosting a fabulous project hop featuring Magnolia stamps with an amazing group of talented paper crafters presenting new projects daily!  It's call the Mega Magnolia March.  There are loads of sponsors giving away prizes too!  Go
check it out!   Click here to visit Nurse Larelle's Kick-off to the Mega Magnolia March Event!

To make my cards, I used the corrugated card base from Michaels.  I used an assortment of Spellbinders dies, doilies, flowers from Recollections, bling from Michaels, and of course, Copic markers for the coloring.  Please let me know what you think!

Thanks so much for stopping by to look.  Have a great week - and happy scrapping! ~Evie ;)
