A Bad Hair Day Or What?


This swing card or flip card is the end result of the tutorial that I just posted below this one (or HERE).

Love this colour combo of pink and green--it's one of my faves.

Here are close-ups of the adorable Magnolia images that I am featuring are:

- Leo Tilda from the Zodiac Collection 2014
- Nativity Fence from the Nativity Collection 2012
I really like this Tilda because her hair reminds me of mine when I get up in the morning...tee hee.  I wasn't too sure about her lion tail that's in the original image though, so I did some masking to hide it.

- Tilda With Maggie the Monkey from the Animals of the Year Collection 2014

Magnolia stamps 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 StampsWild Rose StudiosPenny Black and Candibeans.  Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey and other crafting tools such as Scor-tapes, Prima Chalk Edgers, flowers, etc.
