Going to be drawing the Blog Candy later

but am just catching up on a bit of paperwork.

Lydia and I have just popped into Tonbridge to grab a few bits, and I managed to find a great CD case to store the ever growing family of Magnolia stamps. Got a few more coming from a UK shop, and have (hopefully) ordered the Stamp Club Magnolia release for November/December.

Just had a quick go at decorating it, ‘cos I don’t do black rubber under any circumstances.

Magnolia November/December Stamp club

I can’t be sure for certain, because my Swedish is poor (well to be honest non-existent), and fingers crossed that it all worked so well…..I joined the Magnolia Stamp Club for November/December……………, no, don’t blame me………blame Caz as she got me started on these stamps – love ’em, need ’em…every last lovely little bit of rubber.

I’ve found their inspiration blog now, and will put a link in the side bar on Sunday at some point….oh yummy, yummy.

Off to Ally Pally tomorrow with Kerrin. Hopefully, I will see Petra there and some other UK STampers that track me down. It will be great to catch up.

Thank the F&%^& I am not alone

thank you Roo, so glad I’m not alone…….most people have never heard of him.

I find him the funniest bloke around, and am VERY jealous that you get to see him quite a bit. Off to have a look at the page – there again, I easily amit that I have OCD issues too, so may be that is why…or is it because he’s hot (shame on me old enough to be his Mother too).

Maybe you can tip me the wink about which comedy club, and we can meet up and enjoy him together.

For anyone who still doesn’t know who I’m on about, check out Roo’s page here.

Another version of the Umbrella Tilda

I did a draft of the first one earlier in the day, and have just published it, but it’s below this morning’s published post for some reasons. Anyhoo….

Supplies for this one are:

  • Orange Bazzill cardstock
  • White Prism cardstock
  • Scrap of Red Bazzill cardstock
  • Raining Cats & Dogs 6×6 pad (English Paper Co) for the cat/dog image and the striped paper
  • Girl with Umbrella (Magnolia)
  • Corner Rounder
  • COPICs (E31Brick Beige; E00 Skin White; B21 Baby Blue; C1 Cool Gray)
  • Scor-it Board

I’ve done a couple more cards, but it’s too dark

to take photos. Both of them are using the lovely Magnolia stamp that Stampingcaz kindly sent me. Unfortunately, she is having to wait for the one from me, as it’s not in stock yet.

Oh how did love colouring in the stamp, it’s bigger than a Bella, so a bit more of a meaty project.

I promised some of the girls on UK STampers that I would do a quick colouring tutorial (such as my colouring is) just to show how ease the whole process is with COPICS. Obviously, I can’t yet achieve the same look as some of the lovely USA gals, but I’m trying.

The other thing that I’m loving at the mo is the English Paper “Raining Cats & Dogs”, it’s oh so sweet.

It’s raining – Magnolia


  • Orange Bazzill cardstock
  • Dotty Paper from “Raining Cats & Dogs” 6×6 pack (English Paper Company)
  • Brown dotty paper (Sweetwater)
  • Blue cardstock (PM River Deep 8×8 collection)
  • Magnolia Girl in Rain
  • Memories Art Print Brown Permanent dye ink
  • Azure Seas Whispers Dye Ink
  • Orange Prima Daisy
  • Butter Popcorn Zoomz (for centre of Prima)
  • Striped ribbon (Scrap Goods kit)
  • COPICS (Y15 Cadmium Yellow, YR24 Pale Sepia; E00 Skin White; R20 Blush; Y21 Buttercup Yellow; BV04 Blue Berry; C1 Cool Gray)
  • Gold Sakura Gelly Roll
  • Star Corner punch (to make ticket corner)
  • Corner rounder punch
  • A5 Purple Cow Cutter (with flutted blade fitted)
  • Scrapbook Adhesive
  • Scor-it Board

How to:

  1. Cut the 12×12 Orange cardstock in half, and score with the Scor-it board to make a 6×6 card.
  2. Stamp out the Magnolia image and colour with the COPICS. Trim around the image with the Purple Cow cutter and the flutted blade.
  3. Matt this image onto blue cardstock, and put aside until later.
  4. Take the dotted paper from the Raining Cats & Dogs pack, and trim to 5×5, then using the star corner punch make ticket corners. Run the Azure Seas ink around then edges, and matt onto dark brown spotted Sweetwater paper and add to the front of the card.
  5. Add the matted magnolia image slightly off centre.
  6. Tie the stripped ribbon around the left hand side (not quite into the spine).
  7. Add a Prima Daisy to the bottom left of the stamped image, with a Butterpopcorn Zoomz in the centre.
