I don't usually post on the weekends....but I did want to let you know that Kelly who owns the KL Stampn N Scappin Store is offering 10% off all the Basic Grey 6x6 pads! This card uses some YUMMY paper from the Two Scoops pad. I Love the Basic Grey 6x6 pads because they scale down the size of the pattern from the 12x12 papers they sell. So the designs are a more appropriate size for card making. Don't forget to preorder some Magnolias of your very own while you are over at Kelly's store! If you like to color...you will love Magnolias!

I don't usually go into long blah blahs describing how I made the card...I guess I assume that you can figure out what I did by looking at the card and the supply list. And if you can't you can email me or leave a question in the comments. Personally, I can't stand reading: "First I made the base out of brown cardstock...then I layered the cherub paper on top of that...then I...." Heeeellllllooooo....I just don't need a step by step tutorial on every card I see! And my card making does not have a nice neat order of 1.2.3...It usually includes pealing thing off and moving things around...changing my mind...ripping stuff up....making boo boos that turn into embellishment opportunities...! LOL! Do you really want a step by step guide to the 2-3 hour process?! Nooo! I am sure that you have more to do in your day. LOL!

But I want to mention how I made the little white corner doily things: I used 2 small scalloped circle nesties and cut them in half. I punched holes into it, then adhered it to the corner...then I cut of the excess. Clear as mud? If not let me know and I will try to take some pics.


Also, sorry about the X's across some of the Copics....I took the pic of the markers to get them out of my way and then I decided to paper piece the bottom of the cupcake. Hence, those 3 colors were part of the card no more.

Have fun shopping!

Have a superfluous shopping day!

Kristine B. said...

oh gawsh...ok, I just learned my lesson LOL as I tend to tell step by step on my cards when I have nothing better to talk about. Guess I won't do THAT anymore! LOL. SUPER DUPER CaUTE!! Love her sitting on the cupcake. It's great that there are so many "sitting" Magnolias out there--it's fun putting them on top of things. Love this paper too--might have to get that one as well. Have a sweet day! =)

So Cute! I know what you mean about the blah blah blah steps to make a card! hahah

Mrs Adept said...

LOL - I rarely tell how I make a card too, or the ingredients. I think it's pretty self explanatory with the pictures. LOL. I am so happy that I am not the only one who takes more than an hour ( or 2 ) to do a good card. :) Love your Tilda on her cupcake. :)

LOL . . . I have been known to blah blah a bit, and then I re-read it and think did I really need all that? I think scaling down my list of stamps, cs, inks, etc used is the best way to help others who are not sure about some those things (just in case, I guess). THANKS so much for posting about the sale. I really appreciate it! AND I see you used those cute little cherubs from the Two Scoops pad. So sweet!! Kelly
