Celebrate...it's your day! - Magnolia-licious 'Celebrations'


We're midway into our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The challenge theme is 'Celebrations'.  It's Team B's turn to post our inspirational cards/projects, so hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see what my DT teammates have created and also to get the details for the challenge and how you can join in the fun.

Here's my DT card for the challenge...

But just wait for a sec...this is only the view of the card front, when the card is all folded up.  This is actually a tri-shutter card.

I altered the measurements of the original tri-fold shutter card and made another version of the card.

This gives me not quite a full panel for the card front but still a bigger front panel than the original tri-shutter card. 

Here are a few new Magnolia stamps that I finally got around to colouring.  And I've coloured these images with markers.   

- Elephant Show Tilda from the Little Moscow Collection 2013
- Miss Dorothy (the elephant) from the Little Moscow Collection 2013

- Tilda in Evening Dress from the Little Moscow Collection 2013

The stamps for these images are available from Magnolia-licious, where Diana carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and CandibeansMagnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies.  Have look at the *new* exquisite dies from Memory Box and PoppyStamps.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.  Sweet!

Here's one of the dies that you can get from Magnolia-licious:
for the purple flowers, I used these dies...
Memory Box 98511 Fabulous Phlox
