Just Magnolia #1 / Stamp Something

JUST MAGNOLIA





Wooooohooooo!!!!!! Oh boy oh boy, it is 8am and time for the very first ever challenge on Just Magnolia . I have been looking forward to today all week and so have lots of you too judging by all our wonderful followers ... thankyou so much.


We have a wonderful sketch to follow created by our very own Donalda , I just love sketches and this is one I will use over and over - thanks hun!


As you can see I have rotated the sketch to suit my image .... isn't Tilda so sweet with her basket of flowers! I have coloured her with prismacolor pencils and blended her using Sansador and paper stumps. All my papers have been printed using the Bearly Mine Designer Extreme Vol 1 CD. My MSDP has had a good workout again and making their debut on my blog is one of my new ticket stamps and also my new SU ribbon!



I have used glitter chalk around the edges of my image to soften it and to add a little sparkle too. All finished off with some matching Prima flowers. My colours were inspired by a card my fellow DT member Kim made recently - I just fell in love with it.





A simple insert made to compliment the card, getting good at doing these at the same time as I make my cards now :o)

Make sure you pop over to our challenge blog for more inspiration than you ever dared to imagine and of course ..... details of the monster prize to one lucky entry to mark the start of our new blog. Remember we are happy for you to combine challenges, just make sure you have a Magnolia image somewhere on your card.

STAMP SOMETHING




Wow, another week already and that means another brilliant challenge on Stamp Something . A great theme this week ........ COLOUR COMBO .......
YELLOW, BLUE & GREEN



The hardest part of this card was chosing my backing paper but once I had that sorted the rest was easy!!!! Seems a long time since I used my cutie stamp from Whiff of Joy but he seemed perfect for my card. Even dusted off my swiss dots embossing folder, must use this more than I currently do because it is so easy and gives a lovely effect. Nesties in abundance as always, how did I manage without them!



Also loving my EK Success punch that I bought at Harrogate - another really useful purchase!
We have been sponsored by The Cutting Cafe this week so pop over for details of their great prize and also to view the wonderful creations by the fab DT!!
