You are my Happy!


I've been working on some other stuff that I can't post yet, but finally I have a card that I can show to you now. 

Isn't she adorable?  I love this image.  She is called Up Up and Away.  She is from Magnolia's newest stamp collection, With Love Collection 2013.

The sentiment was a freebie from Create with TLC.  Thanks, Paulette.

The stamp for this image is available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious.  The images from the newer collections have been coloured up by the DT gals to give you a sample of what they can look like.  Diana has a vast collection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  If you don't see the one you are looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.

Have a look there also at the selection of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs. Diana offers discounted prices, excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase--sweet!

In the inside of the card, there are some fancy folds.

A view from a more upper angle.  Love those folds!

This is a new type of card for me and I'm not sure what to call it.  Diana sent me the link to the card that Bente Årstad made HERE.  Bente had provide a template for her card, but the measurements are in metric.  I played around with her template and made my own version for a 6-inch x 6-inch card.

Edited:  I have now made a tutorial for this type of card, templates included.  If you're interested click HERE.
I have used another cute image from the same With Love Collection.  This one is called I Am In Love, also available from Magnolia-licious
I have coloured both images using my markers.
