Magnolia Down Under Guest DT card

Good Afternoon!!!!!
The challenge this week is MASKING- must use masking technique on card..

Well as you can see I went MASKING CRAZY!!! LOL....
I have used one of my *new* little Tilda's holding flowers and sit her on top of a *NEW* CC Design mushroom then used my springtime scene by Magnolia. All 3 are masked together then cut out with my round nestie. I then have used 2 more of the *new* CC Designs stamps.. If you look up on the left side you will see that cute little picket fence that I have only used 2 of the pickets and put prima flowers around it and POPPED the fence.
I have also used the birdhouse on the far right of the card. I have sit it on a bunch of flowers. I have also used one of my all time favorite stamps as the sentiment.
I have a few extra pictures today so that you can see the demention (3D) on the card.
oh oh yea that cute little butterfly is also a *NEW* CC Designs stamp. :o)

okay now for the style of the card. I have seen them all over blog land and have never made one until now.
I looked all over for one to see just how to do it. But of course couldn't find ANY!!!! uhgggggggg

So I did it myself and I tell you this will be the last one that I will be doing as I think it is NOT sturdy enough and it is hard to embellish because of that. NOT MY CUP OF TEA!! tee hee hee..
Cute design but NOT for me!
Okay now for so very very exciting news................

Liz's creative corner said...

Wow this is simply stunning, well done on your DT your so talented, thanks for your lovely comments, hugs Liz xx

Ellis said...

WOW!!!!! WOW !!! and WOW!!!! That's all I can think of to say!

TIP to make this type of card more sturdy:

take two pieces of sticky tape, one about 1,5 cm smaller than the other. Put the small one in the middle of the big one (sticky sides together) The ends are now still sticky. If you put this between the folds (on the back ofcourse)you can still fold the card, but it will stand more sturdy.


Juls said...

wow you have done it again, this is utterly amazing!!! Love the gorgeous colours...all your perfect little details the colour the sparkle, ifact just everything! such a masterpiece!! Hugs Juls

Janiel, The detail on this card is amazing! It must of took you forever to put together. gorgeous!
~Hey silly girl, I can't believe you thanked me for entering your blog candy. I think that would be MY pleasure. LOL!
Another thing I can"t believe is that I see you have been married as long as I have and you have children as old as mine. Is the picture of you from like you were a teenager or what because you certainly don't look my age. LOLOL!
Congrats on being on the Magnolia dt, They are the ones who lucked out because you rock!
Can you tell I am a big fan of yours?
Ok gotta run now that I wrote a book in a comment slot.
Have a beautiful Sunday,

Hello Janiel,

Wow! This is a true piece of art!!! You must have put a looooot of time in this one!!! It's amazing! Oef, it will take a long time until I would be able to make something like this! Loving it!!
Thank you so much for also stopping by on my blog and leaving a message, I really love this blogging, all people are so sweet and you really get inspired by it, makes me want to run away from work and just start creating new cards again, hi hi..
I just looked at the photo in the bottom of your blog, your creative corner, that's great! I must admit I'm a little jealous.... ;-) You have so much materials and this great space!! I'm always carrying around my basket with materials and make room on the diningtable and when I have to stop I have to clean the whole table again... not very nice, have to show my boyfriend your photo and look at him with my sweetest smile, hi hi!!!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations and a fabulous day to you! Wendy
