Bon Voyage

Hello there, I hope you are having a fab weekend.  This month I was the hostess for the challenge over at Magnolia-licious.  Since this past month we’ve been working with a new collection called Bon Voyage, I thought it would be fun to make a card and a coordinating backpack or suitcase.  For details and links be sure to jump over to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog.  Also, this is my last post for Magnolia-licious, so in many respects it is another Bon Voyage.  It’s a hard group to step down from, but I need to free up a little bit of time.  I’ve been with the group over a year and will miss everyone terribly.  

For my card I’m using #3006 Tilda on the Loose.  Tilda is colored with Copic Markers and her dress is pieced.  I used a piece of textured paper to make the suitcase and I also used it as embellishment on the card and is cut with a border punch.  Tilda is cut from Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM and popped up on Spellbinders Beaded Ovals.  I had a fun little postage stamp that I used for embellishment that I popped up on Spellbinders Eyelet Squares

I don’t use brads very much any more but since I put them on the suitcase they seemed at home on the card.  A ribbon knot was the perfect place to nestle a pin with pearls and bobbles.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Magnolia-licious – #3006 Tilda on the Loose
Paper:  Bazzill, K&Co.
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Accessories:  Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM, Spellbinders Eyelet Squares, Spellbinders Beaded Ovals, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Brads, Ribbon

Hugs and smiles!!

    Adorable project, Becca! Love it!ReplyCancel

  • BarbaraSeptember 5, 2010 - 6:40 pm

    Another delightful creation!!

    You will be missed on the Magnolia- Licious team, but you are on so many design teams I am totally amazed that you get the requirements done for so many companies.

    You always put your best effort into each and every card you design. I think you short change yourself to meet your commitments

    Even a lady like you with outstanding ideas and a magic touch needs to occasionally get a full nights sleep and have some time to spend with your Honey :)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    I’ve been mia for a week but I got back just in time to see one of the cutest cards of yours. It is no secrect that I am not the biggest fan of magnolia-licious, but this is just to stinken cute. I absolutely love it. The case is adorable, and the girl stamp is probably one of the cutest I’ve seen. Luv the cuttlebug embossing folder used. Sorry you are stepping down from one of your favorite stamp co. team’s. I know that they will definitely miss you. You will still be able to use their stamps thou and can always be a guest designer. Glad to be back.

    I know you will be missed Becca. I think using the brads is a perfect embellishment. Tilda is colored and paper pieced so nicely. I love paper piecing but have never tried it. I love the allover design. As always Becca, TFS!!! and for starting my day off with some eye candy and a smile. :-DReplyCancel
