Happy Wednesday! It's the day of the week that the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog dedicates to the 'Wednesday Mini Mangolia Challenge' where the design team showcases te Mini Magnolia Stamps images, along with a few Stamping Bella images thrown in every now and then. It's my turn to participate in this week's Wednesday posting.
Here's what I've created, a Christmas card using a Stamping Bella image.
A couple of favourite embellishments for me for Christmas cards are the tiny paper pinecones and hellebore/Christmas roses. If you're interested in making your own, I've done the tutorials which you can HERE and HERE.
A closer look at the Stamping Bella image being featured:
- Uptown Girl Eve Under the Mistletoe is actually part of a 2-stamp set, an image-and-sentiment set with the sentiment stamp saying 'holiday wishes and mistletoe kisses.'
This stamp is available from Magnolia-licious, HERE.
And a heads-up, if you didn't know already, that the Magnolia-licious store is closing its doors. Everything must go! All stock has been heavily reduced and will continue to do so. Now is your chance to find real bargains. Check out the store, HERE.
