TOMIC number 3

Hi Guys!
The week rolled by so quickly and work was super busy as per usual.. :) .. But that didn't stop me from picking up my Magnolia and playing!
I have been viewing a lot of blogs dedicated to Magnolia stamps and I am so amazed with the overflowing creativity so many crafters have! I know in time I will be able to catch up but for the meantime I am just sticking to my gut and do my thing (add to the fact that I am still waiting for some supplies to arrive .. tee hee :) ...).
The card I made is for the TOMIC challenge no. 3 . Summer is over here in Singapore and we are now heading towards the monsoon season (although all year round we have rain on most days). It's a very simple card and I did enjoy rolling up the MFT flowers and of course coloring with my Copics. When I think of summer the first colors that pop into my head are yellow and blue, like the sun and beach water.

Hello Summer Card
Materials: Bazzill Cardstock, Collage Press & Basic Grey Papers, Basic Grey Sticker Tag, Jenni Bowlin Stickers, Prima Pearl Butterfly
Stamping: Magnolia Stamp, Copic Blending Paper, Copic Markers, Memento Ink

A very simple cheery card for summer.
Thanks for looking!

TOMIC number 2

I didn't make it to the cut-off of the challenge but nevertheless I was inspired to continue on and create this card. I wasn't able to make it since I colored one of the backgrounds I did with Copics and took some time.. :) .. And also I didn't hav a blog to start with. But I would definitely join in the next challenge.
I was inspired to create my own patterned paper since I cannot find a paper in my stash that satisfied me for this challenge. I made the background by stamping Hero arts stamp and coloring it with lots of Copics!

Stamping: Magnolia Stamp, Hero Arts Stamp, Copic Markers, Memento Ink, Copic Blending Paper

Welcome to my Magnolia blog!

Welcome to my first Magnolia post :)
I am glad that I am now back to blogging about my arts and crafts. I am still new to the art of cardmaking since previously I am more of a scrapbooker. I have been an avid Magnolia fan for the past couple of month and I am addicted to these wonderful stamps! Add to that my newfound addiction to Copics.. :)
I am still cardlifting as I am still finding footing for my cardstyle. Sometimes I feel stumped and I find blogsurfing for Magnolia a big help!

Birthday Card
Materials: Bazzill Cardstock, Basic Grey Papers, Prima Flowers, Kaiser Crafts Rhinestones
Stamping: Magnolia Stamp, Copic Markers, Copic Blending Paper

I am also still learning to color with Copics. Sometimes it's a miss but that makes the whole process of creation fun (coz it means more stamping and coloring until I get it right :).. ).

That's it for my first post, please read on to see my first challenge entry for TOMIC

Thanks for visiting :)
