Hello Ladies, Happy Friday! Here’s my Just Magnolia Card. This weeks theme is Vintage. I hope my card can pass for being Vintage, it looks old fashion .. to me lol.
I also have a Wild Orchid Crafts tutorial for you, I wanted to show you all how I make my flower clusters. Sometimes it’s a little easier to do the cluster this way, that way individual flowers cannot fall off your card and get lost. I’ve had that happen many, many times! lol!!
I also want to share that I have been invited to join the Magnolia Sweden Design Team! I'm really excited. I cannot wait to see my creations in the Magnolia Ink Magazine! I would love it if you would check out My Magnolia Blog, and become a follower!
I hope you find my tutorial helpful. Have a lovely day!
Gather your Wild Orchid Craft Flowers and lay them in the places you want them to be, with all of the stems going the same way.
Twist them all together, one at a time. Here I added another flower, you cant have enough of them!
Here’s the back.
Here’s a smaller cluster I made for the same card.
I tucked the stems behind the image and taped them down.
Here’s the back.
Here’s the card. You may have to add a little piece of double sided tape to the large flowers just to keep it a little sturdier.
Here’s some more photos..

Happy Monday, today there’s a new challenge over at Belles n Whistles. The challenge is distressing. I used my Distress ink to distress my Magnolia patterned paper, then used my scissors to distress the frame of the image. I love this image, she is adorable and so easy to color.
I have less than 2 more weeks and my term will be up at Belles n Whistles. Thank you so much Summer for this amazing opportunity.

Happy Friday everyone. I really got back in my grove this week. I’m so happy with the last 2 cards I posted. In my Wild Orchid Crafts Design Team Package, Siri gave me these gorgeous purple flowers, so I have been antsy to make a purple card.
Over at Just Magnolia we have a sketch by the one and only Bev Rochester. It is such a fun sketch and I cannot wait to see the entries!
Fussy and Fancy’s challenge is Scallops, Stitching and Sparkles. How fun, right? I cannot wait to see the entries for these as well!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and find some time to participate in some challenges!
