Birthday Never-Ending Card - Magnolia-licious Mini Monday #1


This is our first Mini Monday at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  Mini Monday is when and where we showcase cards/projects using the Magnolia mini stamps.  For my card, I am featuring five mini stamps, although I've also included a couple of full-size ones into the mix.

I've made a never-ending card!  Have you ever made one?  It's such a fun card to play around with.  This is only the second one I've made.  The first time I made a never-ending card, I only had full-size Magnolia stamps and most were too large to be used on a 6"x 6" card (my usual card size), so had to make my card bigger (7" x 7") to accommodate the bigger images.  When the mini Magnolia stamps were first introduced to the Magnolia-licious store, I knew that the mini Magnolia images would be just the perfect size to fit into a 6"-square never-ending card.  This has been on my 'to-do' list ever since and--it took me long enough...LOL--now I've finally made one. 

I've made a very short video--it's near the bottom of this posting--to show how this card works, but first here are the four faces or 'card fronts' in still life.  I've put the names of the Magnolia stamps used below the pictures.

Sweetie Tilda (Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011)

Tilda with Cozy Heart (Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012)

Mini Congratulations Tilda (You Are So Special Collection 2011 - Mini)

Mini Celebration Tilda (Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012 - Mini)

These stamps and a vast selection of other Magnolia stamps--both full-size and mini--are available at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
And newly available at Magnolia-licious are those wonderful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet.
Have a look also at the selections of cutting dies also from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts.
Diana offers discounted prices, gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase! Sweet!!

 And here is the very short video that I made with my camera...

BTW, all the images were coloured with Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias.
