Here are some cards we made in class on St. Patricks Day and What fun that was.  We did a few techniques.  We inked on glossy paper and used stazon stamp pad for the stamping on those papers.  Check them out.

 The first card is made up of 4 strips glued over and over again and the bunny is made from heart punches.  SO cute.  The Thank You card is made from tissue paper stamped with versamark and white embossing powder.  Then we inked the white tissue paper.

 The two cards above are done on glossy cardstock and we used alcohol inks "Tim Holtz"  A few different colors and stamped up the whole glossy side of the cardstock.  Then used stazon ink pad to stamp our images.  Used alcohol inks in those alcohol ink pens to color the images.  Same with the skunk image except we kept the cardstock white.  CUUUTTTE skunk (only on paper though my dogs need to leave the real ones alone).

This was my fav card.  You open up to a folded card and stamp all the sections inside the card and color.  I didn't color mine yet cause I wanted to use my markers.  YAY.  This was one of the funnest classes I have been to.  Can't wait for more.

My Magnolia Dragons. . . .

Here is my Magnolia Dragons.  I tried it with two different color schemes.  I luv my green dragons and Maroon ones also.  But I think this maroon one could have been a little bit darker than brighter.  I added glitz to the heart.  I seem to always pick up that stickle bottle and add it somewhere on my colorings.  I luv the glitz.    Trying to figure out if I should add more pencil to my colorings or not.

Miss Harriet Potter. LOL.

Here is my magnolia wizard.  I'll call her miss Harriet Potter.  I just received her on saturday and there I was stamping away many images of her.  Sat down and colored one just like that.  No thinking just coloring.  So easy peasy on this one.  YAY.  I added glitz to her stars and the trails.  YAY.   Now waiting for my new cartridge to show up so I can add a border to her also. 

Oh I just finished Joes notebook.  I added a branch because the monkey was just hanging by the thread of the paper.  LOL.  I am happy with the book now.  YAY.  he already is using this book.  Joe luvs his monkeys.  YAY.  (I also luv this magnolia monkey) so dang cute.

I now have borders for my coloring.

I now know what cartridge I have coming to my house.  YUP Elegant Edges.  I spent a few hours borrowing someones cartridge at an all day scraping day.  I took my cricut and play with many cartridges but I do have a favorite.  Everytime my cricut cut a new border I squealed with delight.  JUST LOOK.  OH MY GOODNESS.  now I can show off my coloring with borders.  YIPEEE.

A Card Finally!!

Okay took quite awhile to pick out papers to put a card together.  It is not as pretty as the magnolia site cards.  But I am still learning.  I did, however, have fun with my irock.  Look at those pretty gems.  YAY.  That Irock is the best tool every for a bling luver.  YAY.  So what do you think?  Its a joy fold card.  I really like the Joy Fold Card Style.  I am now going to take all my colorings and try to make a few cards.  Lets see how they turn out.  Anyways here she is.  Miss Irish Tilda.  YAY I heart her.
