Magnolia card and matching pin cushion

Hi blogging beauty's
I hope everyone is well and having fun crafting....I am here with my latest project a maggie card and matching pin cushion. I have never made one of these before so this is a first for me...I didnt really know what I was doing lol but I thought I'd give it a go.
I used magnolia stamps from the latest collection sweet rainbow.
- watercan tilda - cellar door - hugo snail

I made this out of plain cotton material, stamped my image and coloured it with copics. I added a large flower that I put together and coloured with my copic abs.

The flowers...

Watering can Tilda...she is so sweet!!

I hand stitched around the edges of the piece in the background. I added some stickles to the dragonfly to make it all shimmery, bit hard to see in the pics. I also went over the swirls on the background paper with some clear spica.

The fence is a Magnolia doo hickey which I made brown by using some chalk ink.

This is the inside of the card, I hand stitched around the edges of the greeting panel. Hugo is so cute! I added some pearls down the side.

Well I hope you like my set, Thanks for looking, I appreciate/love to read your comments.

magnolia shadow box easel card

Hi crafty friends,
 I wanted to attempt to make a shadow box on an easel card...I didnt have a template for the box, so I just had to wing it and see what happened lol....
I have used stamps from the new magnolia collection sweet rainbow and coloured them with copics.

The large flower I made using a spellbinders flower die, I then used the copic abs and sprayed it pink. I layered them all up and joined in the middle with a brad. I mixed up some pink magic mica in a mini mister and sprayed it onto the flower, I then pulled all the pieces into the middle and left to dry.

The dragonflies are magnolia doo hickeys, which I sprayed pink with the abs and put some stickles on them so they would sparkle.

Isn't she a sweetie...?

Off to do some gardening...?

I just love Hugo he is so cute!!

The leaves I punched out with a stampin up punch and the grass was cut from my cricut.

Close up of the large flower I made.

With all my love magnolia text stamp. The pink and white check paper is from the new sweet rainbow paper collection.

magnolia fish bowl

The challenge at Magnolia down under this week is alter it/recycle so I went searching the house and I found this fish bowl which had been sitting empty for ages now. So I had a think about what I could do with it and this is what I came up with....

I wanted to use some of my new stamps from the new sweet rainbow collection from magnolia, so I decided to make a little garden scene.

I addes some pretty lace and a bow to the edges of the bowl...

I used acetate to make little stands on the backs of my images so that they would stand up.

sorry about the glare on the photos it was rather hard to get no glare due to the glass bowl...

I used a magnolia doo hickey to cut out the little dragonfly I coloured it with my copics and decorated it with some liquid pearls and stickles.

I just love Hugo the snail...isnt he so cute!!

I coloured all the images with copics...

I hope you have enjoyed my post..this fish bowl will be a nice additive to my shelf.
