Midweek Magnolia's #139 Shabby Chic or Vintage

Hi Crafty Bloggers

There is a fantastic new challenge at

with one of my favorite themes Shabby Chic or Vintage 
There are beautiful inspiration over on the blog from my talented teamies and details of the wonderful prize from Magnolia and details of how to enter !!!

I have chosen Shabby Chic and made my wonderful daughter her Birthday card  using Celebration Tilda . I have coloured her with distress ink mediums to match these gorgeous papers from Pion from Live & Love crafts.

I have used Papermill linen card as the base and cut the papers with The Vintage Box die. I have also used a Lawn fawn stitched circle die for layering . The flowers were made using Magnolia Peony Doohickey die and more dies from the Vintage box with stamens in the center. The butterflies and tiny cards are made from the Vintage Box too from Magnolia . The shaker part was made using the We R Memory Keepers fuse tool with some pastel sequins from Amazon and a sprinkle of prima glitter. For the shabby chic element I have added touches of white gesso around the edges of my embellishments and card base .

We are so looking forward to seeing your creations <3

I would like to enter my card into the following super challenge ;-

Midweek Magnolia's #138 Anything Goes with a Magnolia Image

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

There is a super new Challenge at
with a great theme !!!
ANYTHING GOES with a Magnolia Image perfect for using your old or new stamps !! There is so much inspiration from my talented teamies all the info is over on the blog so please pop along <3

I am so enjoying playing with the new collection from Magnolia !! Spring Fever and I have coloured Dandelion Tilda using Pion Easter blessings Design Papers from Live & Love Crafts for the colour inspiration using distress ink mediums .

I have also used liquid pearls on the image 

I used Chipboard from dusty attic for the frame and dandelion which I painted with prima acrylic paint and a mini wooden peg . The leaf charm is from Making Memories . The letters have been stamped using a stamp from the vintage box 2 and embossed using dazzle ink with stampendous embossing powder matted on some brown card from The Papermill as with the card base which was cut using a spellbinders die.

I have used some lace from LLC with some twine and some embroidery thread with the heart charm also from LLC for the bow detail. The butterflies were made from vellum coloured with distress ink pads and blending tool with dies from the Magnolia Vintage box 2 finished with some Papermania gems.

Prima pebbles used with some of the design paper underneath and some papermania lace .

The beautiful flower is made using  lace flowers from LLC with a papermania button in the middle and some splats of acrylic paint with a sprinkle of glamour dust on top before the paint dried . I used the Tilda's Laundry stamp underneath .

I had so much fun making this card !!

I do hope you can join us and win a fantastic prize from Magnolia !!
