Little Darlings Rubber Stamps - Cupid

(Well I'm still away on holidays so I am hoping this posts properly.)

There's a rubber stamp line at Little Darling Rubber Stamps called "Lisbeth" and this little beauty is "Cupid".  I paired her up with these pretty papers from LDRS called "Fruit Basket".   They are wonderful to use because they are double-sided and made of quite a heavy card stock. 

I also used a stamp from LDRS's "Friendship" sentiments and there's a whole lot more in that collection that is handy year round.

The feather puff is just from a local party supplies store.  They're usually on the floor of my craft room because for some reason my cat manages to find them.  This is the 3rd trip to that store I made and now I've hid them!  Hopefully I'll remember where I put them.  LOL! 

So just a quick post for today.  By now I should be going through internet and Copic withdrawals on my holiday but at the same time, I should be all rejuvenated when I get back!  Woo hoo!!

Magnolia MINI Monday

 (Hoping this posts on time as I am away - hee hee)

Welcome back to another Mini Monday from Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps challenge blog.  This week I've been playing with mini "Tilda with Heart Balloons" and "Tilda with Wedding Gifts". 

I've also used some Magnolia papers from two different collections.  So I don't have too much more to say about the card because it's basically just filled with flowers.  LOL!!  I will add that the tag is a doohickey from Magnolia-licious called Vintage Tag.  It's one of my "go-to" tags.  Love it!

Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge


 I just love this time of year because it just feels so good! The sun starts to get warmer, the winter coats get put away and everyone gets excited about getting out and not being cooped up anymore!!  WOO HOO!!

For this challenge I used Tilda Watering....OMG HOW CUTE IS SHE?!!  Unfortunately she's out of stock but there are dozens more gorgeous characters at Magnolia-licious online store.  Kind of the hazards of working ahead I suppose.  LOL! 

I was getting pretty tired of square cards so used my Sihouette to create a shaped card. The only thing I don't like is that it's only an 8 1/2" x 12" so I can't quite make a 6" x 6" shaped card so this is a little smaller. I am close to buying a Cameo just because you can use 12" x 12" papers then I could get my 6" x 6" shaped card but what would I do with a perfectly fine Silhouette. Decisions, decisions! LOL!

I love the "Clouds" tutorial that Alycee Keegan does and although my clouds look NOTHING like hers I was still pretty happy with them.  Also her grass tutorial is good as well.  I used my "Summer" border Memory Box dies border FINALLY!  I've probably owned it for a year!  LOL!  You can buy your Memory Box dies from Diana and many more at Magnolia-licious as well!!  My personal favorites are the Magnolia Doohickey's


Magnolia-licious is now selling "Once Upon A Time" and they are sooooo cute!!  But I'm sure I say that about every collection.  LOL!! 

Be sure to check out the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge and enter your "Buttons, Bows or Beads" card.  Although I did manage to get all items on my card, you only have to use 1 to qualify.
