Once Upon a Time DooHickey Dies

Hiya! I have another card using the New Dies from the Once Upon a Time Collection.  This time, I wanted to make a simple card/project that I think a beginner cardmaker can easily make.  No stamps needed and sentiments can be from cutting words from old books or magazines
The New DooHickey Dies I used are the Castle, Tilda Envelop Edge and the Flags. I also used the Sprawling Fronds from the Christmas Story Collection.

The DooHickey Dies are so fun to play with and even with out stamps, (or with just a sentiment stamp) a card or project can turn out really pretty.

Also, the StampClub Summer is available to order HERE
 Here's a sneak peak!
And if you order between April 24 - 30, you get a chance to win a year subscription of the StampClub! So order now!

Tilda in Cotton Dress

Hello Magnolia lovers!
 I made a Sweet 16 Birthday card and I'd like to share it with you.
I made a very girly pink card and I used Tilda in Cotton Dress from the Once Upon a Time Collection. I inked her up with Distress Ink Reinkers and for the creases and folds on her dress, I followed how Zoe colored her dress using Copics. (She posted a photo in FB. I share the link as soon as I find it.)

Here's a closer look at Tilda. I used some Frontage Shabby Pink EP around the edges. The flowers  are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

There is a pull-out Tag for the sentiment and I used Magnolia Designer paper.

Here are are photos of the embellishments.  I made the heart using Frantage Fragments and Crackle Accents.

I used a button to accent the seam binding. And I just love the carriage charm!


I'll be posting another cards using the New Dies shortly.
Thank you for looking and have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Magnolia Fans!
I want to share with you today a project I made using the 
New DooHickey Dies 
Once Upon a Time Collection

I used a brown paper bag and decorated it using the New DooHickey Dies, one of the new stamps and some Magnolia paper. The New Dies I used are 
Tilda Envelop Edge
Peacock Feathers
Lace Coaster

A closer look at Tilda and the Dies.


I'll be back for another project using the New Dies within the week.
I hope you like my paper bag project and I hope I inspired you somehow.

Thank you dropping by!

Happy Tilda

Hello again Magnolia fans! 
I have a card to share with you and I used Happy Easter Tilda from the Little Easter Collection. And as I was going thru my 6x6 paper packs, I saw one old/retired MME paper pad and I thought it would be a nice to use it for the image I chose.  I actually made 3 other sentiments for this card because the image is so versatile that you can use it for any "happy" occasion.

I used DIs to color Tilda and the swirl stamp is also from Magnolia. I really love the older stamps especially the accessory and background stamps and this swirl stamp is one of my favorites.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used Viva Decor Pearl Pens for the pearls.

The ribbon is from my stash and so is the lace, brad and charm. The DooHickey dies I used were Scalloped Stitched Lace and Tea Label Tags

Don't forget, Once Upon a Time Collection is now available in your favorite stores.
And the Dies that come with this collection is coming soon too!

I hope you like my card today. 
Have a wonderful weekend!
