MDUC #202 Debbie D's Choice~ Sepia Colored image

 Hello my friends...............
How are you ? Another week for us to move on and that's mean another fantastic challenge waiting for us ~~ really, it's a very challenging for me, Sepia colored. I am not really understand what is Sepia, so I searched a bit on internet, these was what I found :

Sepia is a reddish-brown color, named after the rich brown pigment derived from the ink sac of the common cuttlefish Sepia.

For my understanding after I read some articles, Sepia is including in Brown color family. OK, this make thing easier. So, I decided that I just want to use one brown color on my image, Walnut Stain is my victim ...haha:-)) This was my very first time to color an image with ONE color, so it was really challenging for me and I took 3 hours to complete coloring it ...on my:-((

 So, just one color, Ranger Distress ink ~Walnut Stain used on this image and a little bit of Black Soot ink to shade . I stamped Tilda on watercoloring paper with Tsukineko Memento Ink. After finished coloring, I cut the colored image with Spellbinders Oval dies. Patterned Papers from Magnolia product.I used Go-kreate die cut to make the card base.

 Some of the flowers from Petaloo and some from I am roses. I embossed the oval edges with Frantage too. It was FUN !
 Very pretty Petaloo flowers which I white wash it with Gesso paint. The resin butterfly made from Martha Stewart clay mold which given by a really sweet friend who always support me in my crafting life and real life know who you are :-))
 A tag from Magnolia Doohickey dies cutting. I stamped Old Script background from Magnolia with Versafine sepia color , distressed with Walnut Stain, white-wash with gesso. Then I put some embelishments such as a heart cut from Magnolia patterned paper, raffia, treble clef-charm and a clothpin. I LOVE all these tiny decoration ! :-))

 I hope you can accept my coloring, as I am not sure if it's looks sepia or not...hahaha.... but I hope you can try it and don't forget to pop over my lovely teamies blog to view their absolutely beautiful creation ! Have fun everyone !

I know you have a very sunny and warm weather out there in Europe, but please remember me when you have fun, we have extreamly HOT weather here and I could rather stay inside my room than going out for the sunburnt..haha....

This week challenge is a bit challenging for me as I always use ready-made flowers which I bought from I am or Prima Marketing, and of course Magnolia. But this week we want to challenge you to make your own flowers. Whatever flowers=)) It's really fun to try different types of flowers, but finally I made these very simple flowers that I used to make long time ago !
I used Magnolia patterned paper to make my spiral flowers, you can view the tutorial I made HERE.
The white flower is peonies which I made from Magnolia Doohickey Peonies, a new released not long ago.

 Some Magnolia Doohickey dies to spice up the layout, which was really fun. I distressed with Ranger Walnut Stain ink. The white and beautiful flowers ribbon was a gift from my teamy, Yulis. Thank you very much.

The patterned papers from Maja Design , Vintage Spring Basic. She knows my style and she sent something very very suit me. Thank you very much Camilla.

As usual, I colored the stamped image and distressed all the paper edges with distress inks. The challenge need us to use button, so it was an easy job, really !

Stamped the corner with Magnolia stamp and added Magnolia half pearls and rhinestones. Cut two butterflies from Maja design papers , folded it and added a half pearl.
If you like all the yummy stuff I used on my card , you can have a visit at Camilla S 's hubby webshop, they have lots of very yummy and beautiful cardmaking supplies, from A-Z.

Tilda as a Clown~ Once Upon A Time

 Hello my dear friends,
Here is a card I made these two days:-)) I inspired by my dear friend Yulis Kartika by her Tilda with Rooster card which she gave me as a precious gift when we met in Singapore last month. 
I made a mother's day with Tilda as a Clown, feel funny ? Yes, you can laugh:-)) But, indeed , Magnolia rubberstamps are so versatile and suit with any occasion. I am sure your mom will be very happy and cheer to receive Tilda as a Clown as a mother's day card:-))

 I colored the stamped image with distress ink pads, distress markers on Langton extra smooth 300gsm watercoloring paper which I got from my dearest teamie, Camilla S from Norway. Patterned paper made by Prima marketing and Magnolia.
 Everyone and everywhere is crazy about frantage in I give it a try! It was so fun to play with all those embossing powder, and I must admit, I with to say a word of thank you to my dear friend Yulis, because she encouraged me to try it :-)) All stamps on this card from Magnolia rubberstamps.

I stamped the alphabet MOM on corrugrated paper and painted with some gesso on it, glue a white string on top of them and added 3 pieces of rhinestones. You noticed the white spot on the cardstock ? I love to see the embossing powder melted when get heated.

 An little piece of embelishment which I made it myself. The charm was bought from a store in Singapore, wow, they sold all kind of charm, and they are cheap ! I stamped " Love" background stamp on a piece of cardstock , put the piece of stamped paper on the charm ,then "trace" the size of the charm with my finger. Cut the "traced" paper with scissors, mat it "in" the charm and cut any excess of paper. I also put some matte glue on it.
I embossed the Magnolia patterned paper~ Cherry with Sizzix embossing folder~ Bubble.
 I hope that you like my card and got inspired! ~

Happy Stamping and have a great day !

Magnolia DT Burlap Mini Album

Hello my friends,
Today I wish to share a very fun and easy project, I called it Burlap Mini Album. I made this mini album with burlap that you can buy from the local store.

This is how the front page of the mini album look. It's 5 inches x 5 .5 inches.
I masked the Spring Tree and the new collection of rubberstamps -Tilda Hiding Easter Eggs and colored with distress markers and distress ink pads.
I will send this mini album to Magnolia shop in Boras, Sweden, for those who want to have a visit there, you can  see this mini album in real very soon=))

Dragonfly from Magnolia Doohickey dies-Dragonflies, Happy Easter sentiment from Magnolia rubberstamps.

How to make the grass looks green ? I taped the Washi tape on a small piece of white cardstock then die-cut with Magnolia Doohickey dies-Grass. Paper flowers from I am Roses and Kort and Godt.

This is how the bottom of the page look, very rustic, I like it:-)

It can be opened and turned into a mini album. Firstly ,I cut a piece of burlap and fold it in 3 parts then I fold the bottom- up about 2 inches and sewn it with my mini machine.

You can put your stuff inside such as photos, tag, stamped images, cards...whatever...or store your Easter Day photos...just use your imagination :-))

I do hope you got inspired with my project and don't forget, be happy and have a nice day !
