Straight To The Heart - Magnolia-licious 'Anything Goes'


We're midway into our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and the theme is 'Anything Goes'.  There's still one more week to get your entries in.  Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for complete challenge details and how you can join in the fun.  Check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you.

Here's my DT card...

And in the inside of the card, there is a surprise 4-step pop-up.

The letters LOVE I had to cut out by hand...argh.  I do have alphabet die sets, but they were either too large or too small.  So I found a font that I like on the internet and blew it up to the size I wanted.

Close-ups of the adorable Magnolia images being featured:

- Sagittarius Tilda from the Zodiac Collection 2014  

- Tilda With Cozy Heart from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012

The stamps for these images, as well as other equally adorable images can be found at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she 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 Studios and Candibeans.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey. and other crafting tools such as Flowers, Prima Chalk Edgers, etc.  Have a look!
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!
