Magnolia Stamp :: Candy Happy!

Hello Everybody! I am so glad you are joining the fun at my Candy! Don't forget to put your name in the linkz! If you need help, check the helpline at the end of the post!

Well I am having a wonderful time reading all your comments. You have no idea how your words make me happy! It is so cool to visit you guys too! Now look who is also happy! My maggie! This is my latest idea. I used copics to color the magnolia stamp and also to create a little background for my little gal! I used what they call the blob method, heheh (have you read ilikemarkers blog?) to create most of the leaves and flowers. This was the first opportunity that I had to use my airbrush sys. Actually the copic airbrush feature actually was one of the first things that called my attention to these markers.
I got a little copic happy and I forgot to list my colors! So forgive me! If you have any questions about colors let me know (just use the shout out box on the side or leave me a comment). I will be more than happy to share!
I will add a a little This & That latter, okay? Thanks for dropping me a note!

Magnolia Stamp :: Easter bunny treat

Howdy ladies and Gent!
If you are out there and need a little idea for a last minute bunny gift. No worries. Just grab your Magnolia stamp and an acetate box (I know you saved one from that tool that you got last year; ) ) and some delicious chocolate (yes...the ones from that stash that your people don't know about heheh. See we got something in commum. Joking! Well I do have chocolate away!).
To make this little project I just stamped my Magnolia stamp with memento ink and colored with my trust worthy Copics. I used some spicas for a little touch of bling! The trick on this project is very easy. Make sure when you are cutting your image to fit in the box...you leave a belt. The belt will help keep your image right where you wanted it to be!.
After you are done, just pour the chocolates and spruce it up with a nice ribbon! Voila! In a few minutes you will get a pretty package and for sure you will make quite an impression!
Note: You can use this same principal to adorn a ton of other gift boxes too! Reuse, recicle, reporpouse!
luv, anaRy

Coffee, Cookies and Copic :: I was Knighted

Yes!!!!!!!!! I was knighted by Sally (she is the sweetest thing!). I am now a Copic certified designer. I am joking about the knight thing hahha...but you that now hold that holly badge know the feeling : ). 
I travel a lot to get to that class and I had good time. My classmates were fun and very participative, lots of good questions were posted at the Q&A. I learned a lot and had a lot of insights and aha's moments! At the end of the day I was tired but with a good feeling that I was taking home a lot of good ideas and knowledge! 
I am in the mood to celebrate! I think I am ready to reveal my candy pic! I was adding goodies in the mean time : ). Come back to the reveal at the end of this week! Cheers!
xo, anaRy.


Magnolia stamp :: Spring ahead!

Howdy Everyone!
Phew after a long weekend..I am pooped, but happy. That is what matters. The best part? The sun is shinning and the flowers are popping everywhere. Oh...how much I love to see the yellow from the daffodils, the new leaf green (Did I just mention a copic color?) and the purples of crocuses and pansies! Can you tell I love spring and the colors that come with it? : ).
In anticipation on what to come and to celebrate mother nature I created this Magnolia card with huge flowers. I love to add a little texture to my cards, so once more I reached for my adored micro beads. I created the center of my flowers with i-toppers, copic markers and yes you got it! Micro brads! The picture does not make justice to the yumminess on how this came out. If you have not seen i-top tool, go check it out. You can make your own brads...it is sooooo cool to use!

To add a little extra touch of spring, I used mini jewels to mimic dew drops on the corner of my card. I will tell you, it took me quite a while to color the flower heads in that embossed background! Yes I am a nut, but I had so much fun! I really hope you liked this card, and I dream of more lovely inspirations coming from the season that just started! Happy spring and if you feel happy drop me a note here...I would love it!
Now hurry to Magnolia Stamp Lovers and participate on our latest challenge! Vivi is hosting a die cut challenge! Come over and link your Magnolia card! You could win one of the newest stamps from Magnolia. The bride and groom! Thank you Cindy for sponsoring the goods!
I entered this card also on Cinema Saturday Challenge. This is a great challenge blog! The gals choose 13 going into 30 as movie of the week...and I think my springy youthful gal would fit the bill!! Doesnt she look like naughty little girl?

Magnolia stamp :: All dressed up for the occasion!

Oi (hello in Portuguese!) everyone!
Well, my Maggie collection is fairly small...so I try my best to dress them up!
Remember the days the ladies wore white gloves? My inspiration came from that time. So for this card I spruce up my Maggie! I am thinking to send this card as a Birthday card..I got a friend that she loved dress up!
Check it out the hat veil! I am in a quest to use different ways of coloring...and this time I tried to keep my colors fairly muted. I just really loved the possibilities that all those yummy Copic colors offered (it is pricey, but oh worth it!).
 I would  love to hear what you guys think! How do you like the make over?
Thanks for dropping by!
See ya!

PS: Oh...keep in touch to find out what in that candy basket! It is good...maybe I should keep it.. Nah... You guys deserved!

Magnolia Stamp :: Play time

Hello! Isn't funny when you get out of your comfort zone all of sudden you become more efficient? Well this is my story with my new Magnolia card! People I had a blast making my Tilda in the swing! 

This baby came to my mind as soon as I saw the first tent card, including the swing (I saw so many beautifully done cards on the net as I looked for tuts). I had just the right image to use for this occasion Sixties Tilda. I also choose to go with a sort of monochromatic coloring vibe. Do you know something? I like it. It is amazing when you use tones on tones, you can still make things come to life! I am a sucker for p&b or sepia tones...actually this probably will be one of my next personal challenges. So much to learn, so little time. How about you? Do you get out of your comfort zone by challenging yourself? While you think..I will play...with my markers! Of course. : )
*** Shhh..I will have a Candy happening soon...so subscribe! I would love you to be here to have a chance to win something gooood!

Yeah, you got it right! One of you will receive one of the hottest magazines in the world of stamping today! Thanks Cindy! I am soooo excited for you all!!!

When I came across the theme for this new challenge..one thing came to my mind...coffee, chocolate and a romantic set! So I said: "Why not Paris?!" (of course the dog was looking at me like...what the hell?!!). The next step was to look thru my clear stamps and find images to create the background. I was hoping to set the cafe mood for my Maggie. I also had an opportunity to create some hand made embellishments to give a little extra charm...I really had the best time making this little cup of espresso and a chocolate bar. Well, I guess now I better crank up the espresso machine! See y'all at MSL challenge!
