Just Magnolia / Stamp Something


Good morning to you all and it is still a little cool but I am hoping the weather will warm up again soon. Whilst it is cooler though it is the perfect to get in your craft rooms and be creative, We have just the thing to keep you busy on Just Magnolia ...... a fabulous sketch by our very own /a> .


Now I absolutely love sketches and this is a real beauty but boy did I almost end up crying. I had finished my card and thought I would be good and tidy up my space. Imagine how I felt when I found the rectangle piece of paper for the LHS of my card sat there under a tub of flowers :o(
I had to pull my card apart - that glue is really sticky! I even had to remove the flowers, brads and ribbon. Anyway, managed to get it all to stick back together again so phew ... crisis over!





Have you also seen the fabulous tutorial on distressing by our lovely Kim on the JM page? It is fab and there is also some news about some exciting things coming up too - you won't want to miss out on the fun!
I hope you all get chance to play, remember you can combine your challenges as long as you include a magnolia stamp somewhere on your card.
-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-





Here we are at a brand new point for Stamp Something , the first challenge for our shiny new DT!!!!! We have a great theme this week and would love to see some beautiful wedding cards
SOMETHING OLD SOMETHING NEW





We were all lucky enough to have been sent a wonderful digi kit full of gorgeous images by our sponsors this week 'My Grafico' and I had lots of fun with it. I decided I wanted to use lots of their images all together so after a lot of muttering under my breath and the odd naughty word I managed to find out how to do this in my graphics programme (a real challenge for me, lol)





I coloured my image with chalks and then used my scrummy glamour dust ..... everywhere!!!!! I finished the dress with a few flat backed pearls - so glam!
I hope you get chance to play and to say a big hello to our newest members on the DT. Please pay them a visit and see their gorgeous creations.
Have a great day - I am off to uni to be educated for the day about COPD ...... it is almost like a day out, lol.

Hi Marcea,
Both of your cards are stunners! Your Magnolia card is beautiful and Tilda is colored in perfectly! Don't you hate it when a "boo boo" happens? Good thing you were able to correct the problem without tearing your paper.
Your second card is beautiful also, I love the pearls and the glitter!
