Magnolia-licious August challenge

Good morning!
I am running a tad behind getting this posted to my blog.
*blush blush*

The challenge this month is a T-Slide Card brought to us by very sweet and talented DT member Mindy Baxter! Now when Mindy picks a challenge she really does pick a true challenge. This T-Slide card is just a bit tricky to get it to work just right and mine still doesn't open up far enough. I started over with mine more times than I would want to admit. *blush blush* I would love for all of you to join us this month at the Magnolia-licious Highlights blog. I would love to see all of the wonderful creations that you all come up with. You could win a couple of Magnolia stamps from Magnolia-licious!
The tutorial for this can be found HERE. I would recommend that you watch the video before you start to cut and score. The way that the tutorial is written it can be just a tad tricky. But the finished products are stunning. Make sure you stop by and see the stunning cards that the DT has put together.


Card Ingredients
Papers: bazill cardstocks, GCD Studios, Magnolia Ink, Bella Blvd
Stamps: Tilda (Not sure what the number or name is) If you email Diana she will be able to direct you for purchase at Magnolia-licious! Sentiments unknown
Ink: Copic markers, watercolors pencils, Distressed ink for edges
EmBellies: Prima Flowers, pearls, ribbon,button, stickles
Tools: sewing machine, punch a bunch circle, Imaginisce 22mm punch, corner round

I will be back to my normal this week with my postings. So I hope you will stop back by to see what I have come up with and I will have a few BAD pictures for CHA.

hugs and hope your day is great in whatever you are doing.
Janiel

This is such a beautiful card Janny and worth all the starting over LOL no blushing necessary. Your colouring is incredible and she is one of my fave Tilda's. Love those papers too, they're so pretty. How amazing that you were holding my cards LOL, I had no idea they had taken them over to CHA and thank you for your sweet words, you're lovely. Have a great Sunday, Chris :)

Papers, papers, papers, you always have the yummiest!! I want to follow you around when you are shopping and see where you find all that loveliness! This is a fantastic creation - that T-slide technique looks too complicated for me, but congrats on getting it to work on your card!

Hope you are doing well. I miss being on a DT with you!

Hugs,
Linda
