A 'Hello' Swing Card


Woo-hoo...my stamps from Magnolia's latest stamp collection have arrived from Magnolia-licious.  Have you seen the collection?  I've created a card here to feature a couple of the cute images.

This is a swing card or a flip card.  This one is of a slightly different version from the ones I've made in the past.  I like this style of card as the swing panel gives me a chance to showcase a second image on the flip side.

I've used a favorite die of mine to create the swing or centre panel.  It's one of the dies from the Go Kreate XXL Square Frames Frilly #3 set.

These are the names of the couple of images--oh, so adorable--that I'm featuring:

- Tilda With Chanel the Puppy from the Animal of the Year Collection 2014

- Tilda With Lace Pants from the Animal of the Year Collection 2014

The stamps for these two images are available from Magnolia-licious.  Check out the rest of the collection HERE. You can also find other Magnolia stamps, both full-size and minis.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosPenny Black and Candibeans.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and...you get to earn 2% in-store credit which you can apply to future purchases.  How sweet!

Your cards are always so unbelievably stunning Norma, I don't get time to comment very often but I always see them and just had to come by today. I see your cards all the time in Top 3's etc and it never surprises me, you have the most beautiful, perfect style. Every card is incredible and this one is so amazing too! I love how you've used Tildas on both sides. XOX Lucy
