Notebook for my Boss

Hello All,

Today I want to show you notebook that I made for my boss. 

My Boss is a such nice Lady from Thailand and She will be going back to her home country in 2 months.

Before I move to this department last september I heard that she was a really tough person to work with.

But during this time we are working together I could find loads of things we like in common, such as: traveling around the world, being in the same place that is not so popular like Patagonia in Chile, like the masterpieces of Gustav Klimt,  we have no children and don`t want to have them etc..  and we got along very very well!!!

She writes books about traveling but in thai language....  I told her she has to publish in english so I could read them too.

Anyway, I like her so much and as she appreciates my handmade cards so I decide to make a 
notebook for her, so he could make notes during her travel.

I used Traveller Tilda and Travel luggagge, colored them with copics ciao markers. 
Background paper is from Basic Grey, rhinestones from Kaisercraft, sentiment is from Stampin`up and flowers are from petaloo.

I will enter this project in to the following challenges:

Colour Create Challenge: Pastel colors
Tottaly Papers Crafts:  Pink and Green
Cute card Thursday: Dimensions
Saturday Challenge:  Pink, Green & Flowers

So I hope you like my project and leave a comment about it!!

Thank you for stopping by today and have a great Sunday!!

Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge #6 - Die Cut

Hello My Friends,

I hope you all had a great weekend!!! I sure did!

This post is quite special for me because is my first time posting a challenge that I have proposed at Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge Blog!!  so I would love if you all could stop by and join me! 

I have proposed to use die cuts on the challenge...  Oh, this little cuts are great and give a special touch in our cards!!

Well, I don`t have many die cuts yet, but I have few nestabilities, so I made my card with it!
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities - MEGA CURVED RECTANGLES shape to  cut the card and cut it on my Sizzix Big Shot Machine.

If you don`t know how to use the die cut, there is a great tutorial at Stamping Scrapping...  You will see that is easy and quick!

For  my card I used a Tilda with Puppy from Magnolia Stamps and colored her with copics ciao markers and cut scalloped oval for Tilda to be sitting on.

Background paper is from Basic Grey and also cut with nestabilities mega curved rectangules....  I added some red half adhesive pearls and petalloo flowers..

So, I hope I have given a little bit of inspiration and you can now join us at Magnolia Stamp Lovers..  there is an awesome prize for a lucky winner which is Magnolia - 412 WEDDING COUPLE A and you have till march 28th to enter in this challenge!!!

So, see you there!!!!

Just Magnolia Challenge week 45

Hello All,
I hope your weekend is being great!!

I made this card today to participate in Just Magnolia Challenge this week.
It is to make a tent card. Dena has made the tutorial for this card and the DT has made awesome cards. 

I had a hard time in finding a image for this card and my scaloped oval nestie was not large enough. 

As I did not have a chain to hang Tilda I used a pearl ribbon that I had..  

I colored Tilda with copics ciao markers, flower is from Imaginisce and patter paper is from basic grey!

I hope you like my card!!  Thanks for stopping by today!!
I wish you all a great week!

I used this image that I receive from a friend in a swap.. Tilda holding a package... this image is so cute!! and I colored it with copics ciao markers... I put stickles on her wings... so could have a little bit of shining...
Flowers are my brand new acquision and I love it.. they are so sparkling...

A new card for 2 challenges

Hello Ladies & Gents, 

Today I want to show you a card that I made to  join 2 challenges.

Cupcake Craft Challenge: Round & Round
Papertake Weekly Challenge:  Buttons, Bows, Brads & Bling

I used Tilda in a petit coat image from Magnolia stamp and I have colored it with ciao copic markers.

I put stickles on her belt and her bow.. it looks so nice.. that is a pity it can`t be seen on the pic. 

I don`t know which patterned paper this is because I received from a friend in a swap.

Sentiment is from Stampin`up and the round papers were cut with nesties.
I had this cute flower button in my jar and I always like to put it in the middle of the sentiment. I think it looks nice!

I also put 3 silver round brads on the top left corner of the card!  to complete the challenge I put red  silk ribbon.

So now it is your turn to let me know about my card,ok!?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

A Boy Card

Hello Ladies,

I hope you all are keeping well.

I had made this card few days ago and I couldn`t find any challenge to enter with it till today when I check Roses on Paper Challenge Blog.

The challenge is to make a card for boy/man.

I used Edwin holding roses on his back image from Magnolia Stamp, colored it with copics ciao markers and decorate with yellow round brads & brown ribbon.

I love ribbon so I thought if I don`t make a bow, it is ok for boy`s cards. What do  you think?

Thanks for stopping by today!!
