Today we're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The new theme is 'Spring Into April.' To get complete details on the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog site. Don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.
Here's what I've created for the challenge.
Some masking work was required to create the spring-like scene.
And I've put another spring image inside the card.
Here are close-ups of the delightful Magnolia images being featured:
- Hello Little Butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011
- Tulip Wheelbarrow from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011
- Tilda Decorates Easter from the Little Easter Collection 2013
The stamps for all three images above are available from 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, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Saturated Canary and Candibeans and Crafter's Companion, along with cutting dies from various companies including Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey, Wild Rose Studio.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.
