Magnolia Suitcase!! Fall Travels

It's my sisters birthday!! So what better way to send her my love (she lives 4hrs away) then in a traveling suitcase.. I made this little suitcase template.. and had a blast doing it.. I used 2 of the magnolia stamps... the eiffel tower stamp which I embossed with silver embossing powder, then used tim holtz distressed walnut ink to make it look "old" and the flight attendent stamp also..
Up close photo of the Eiffel Tower.. and the stitching!
Inside I created a "passport" this is folded into a little book, It has little stamps where she would have traveled etc.. so all of the family can write a little something to my sister there also..
The Flight Attendent is colored in pinks.. as well as the buckel of the bag.. I added the little white polka-dots with a white gel pen.. This was done for the Just Magnolia Challenge Think Pink

I also stitched everything down so it looked like a real suitcase.. I had a blast making this card!! I have entered it into the All That Scraps Fall/Fold Challenge.. since the handle folds up and down like a real suitcase, and I create the little folded up passport I thought it was perfect.. The Magnolia Downunder has an All Aboard Challenge.. which I thought this is perfect for too :)

2 new projects for you :)

This first project I used a Rachelle Anne Miller Stamp that I got from I just adore her images.. I used the sketch from "The Sugar Bowl Challenge"
The image is colored with copic markers, and the background I used a light gray chalk to shade it. On the bib, and shoes of the adorable duck is some diamond glaze. (you can see in the first picture above) I have also entered this card into the Wild Orchid Challenge-Pastel

For this card I used the adorable freebie from Bugaboo Stamps Jodie gave it to everyone this week. What's your cause challenge HERE
I wanted to create a card for a friend who just found out she has breast cancer.. I also wanted to give her a ribbon, so I made a ribbon that she could wear and take off the card! Diamond Glaze was used for the spots on the ribbon to make the card more interesting.. and I colored the image with Copic Markers..
Thanks for stopping by and looking! HUGS
