It's Time for the Magnolia-licious Easter Blog Hop!

Hello Blog Hoppers!

Can you believe it is Easter? Wasn't it just Valentine's Day? YIKES! Where does the time go? Well, I can tell you that when you hop through the posts listed in this Blog Hop, you'll find that, like the Easter Bunny, you'll be having a hopping good time all the way from start to finish!

The theme for the Magnolia-licious Blog Hop is Easter! We would love, love, love to see a special Easter themed project using something Magnolia, of course. With all the adorable stamps in the Easter Collection, there are a lot of goodies to choose from! The theme is wonderful. Think of something to add some holiday window dressing for your home or your child's room!

If you've reached my blog via the very talented artist, Angela Wood, then, you are just where you are supposed to be. If not, you'll want to start back at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog to get you started. You do not want to miss a single fantastic creation the Design Team gals have to share! Now, I'd like to share my project:

I wanted something very cheery to place on our mantle. The bunnies have a glittered finish so they sparkle. Because they are wooden, and I didn't want them to topple, I added a piece of craft tape to adhere each bunny to the base block. The "flying" Tildas are suspended in the air using a hairpin that I straightened out for each one. Then, I attached it to the image and the back of each bunny. The hairpin was strong enough to support the Tildas without bending yet, narrow enough to be fairly invisible. Next, I added my new cutie pie images and one vintage because I thought he looked cute just sitting there while the Tildas were busy! Here are some close ups:

Here is a listing of the stamps I used for my project. Please visit Magnolia-licious if you are interested in adding any of these precious images to your Tilda Collection.

Ballerina Bunny

Happy Easter Tilda

Tilda Decorates Easter

Tilda Hiding Easter Egg

Little Hoppy with Buttercup

The next stop along the Magolia-licious Easter Blog Hop is the blog of the most inspirational Eulanda Silvey at Cards and More Cards. Eulanda's work is amazing! If you've not seen it before, you do NOT want to miss it!

I'll be drawing a name from those who leave comments. Whomever's name is drawn will get a little special something from me! I love surprising one lucky gal!

I hope you will join us by creating a wonderful Easter project. The Design Team has provided tons of wonderful spring board ideas to get your creative juices going! I can't wait to see what you create. The complete details may be found on the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog!

It's Wee Wednesday at Magnolia-licious!

Hello Gorgeous Creatures,

It's my first Wee Wednesday at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog. While this isn't a challenge, it is an opportunity to share these adorable stamps! What a great opportunity to preview these stamps, get some ideas, and then purchase some of your own at the Magnolia-licious Store!

The stamp I used for my card is titled, Love Trip. I chose to add a touch of designer paper to the balloon decoration. I used lots of layering to give it depth. Here are the photos:

My card includes the following items from the Magnolia-licious Store:

Wee Love Trip Stamp

So Wrapped Lovely Heart Folded Doohickey Tag

Magnolia Doohickey Vintage Tag

Tilda w/Daffodil Basket Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone,

Before I begin, let me start off by announcing the winner from the last Magnolia-licious Challenge Post. That winner is

#24 - Laura

Laura, please contact me with your mailing address so I can get your special something in the mail to you. Congrats!

Are you feeling it - the feeling that Spring is just around the corner? It's supposed to be in the 80s this week. Oh, how I dread the temps of summer! 80 is good, but anything over "a hundred and stupid" is way too much! LOL

It's March Madness at


Diana Crick, owner of Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps, is having an amazing sale! Have you wished you could justify purchasing the Magnolia Ink magazines? Well, Diana is doing some Spring cleaning and, as Diana calls it, "March Madness at Minimum Moolah!" Each past issue of Magnolia Ink is on sale for $6.99! YIKES! Grab 'em while they're hot! The sale will run until March 31.

Also, new to the store are the new Doo-hickey Cutting Dies. I know I loaded up! Oh, there are so many that were too cute to turn down - especially the feather and the lace borders! Check them out!

Guess what? It's that time again - time for another wonderful challenge at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog! The delightful challenge goal is to create a card with an Easter or Spring theme! Oh, I see, eggs, bunnies, flowers, butterflies, baskets, etc! Please know that your card must use at least one Magnolia product for your card to be eligible for a prize. Our wonderful Fearless Leader, Diana Crick, has a special something for one lucky participant! If you know Diana, she loves to give fabulous prizes!You have until March 25 to enter, so don't wait!

Here are the photos of the card I created for this challenge. I chose to use Tilda with Daffodil Basket as my image - and this stamp is currently 25% off! Such a steal! I think it is such a beautiful stamp. It really made my card look extra special.

I had fun with this beauty! The butterflies were created using a die cut on designer paper. I chose to distress the edges of the butterflies. Next, I added a pink vellum die cut butterfly above each of the previous ones. It gave the butterflies a lighter, more delicate look. I also chose to distress the card stock and designer papers used on the mats. Tilda was colored using Distress Inks. I added a lavender color on the inside around Tilda. There is also an addition of Flower Soft at Tilda's feet. A tag is hidden under the image mat. There is also a pink vellum circular die cut behind the image mat. A square doily, touch of lace, pretty ribbons and flowers, and an adorable charm finish the front of the card. Here are more photos:

Thank you so much for dropping by. Please leave a comment if you wish! Remember, I will be drawing a name at random from those who leave comments. That lucky gal will win a little special something from me!
