Good Times - Magnolia-licious 'Shaped Cards' Challenge


We're midway into our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The theme for the challenge is 'Shaped Cards (no squares)'.  For complete details of the challenge and of how to join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

It's Team B's turn to post inspirational cards/projects as a midway reminder, so don't forget to hop over and see what the team has created for you.  In the meantime, here's what I came up with...

One of my favorite types of cards, it's a white-on-white card--except for the coloured images...tee hee.  And what better way to display a card but to make it into an easel card. 

I've taken pictures of the card from different angles as I wanted to show you the 3-dimensional look of the card.


Being featured are a couple of Magnolia cuties:

- On the Road Tilda from the Sea Breeze Collection 2013

- Mini Tilda With Cross Necklace from the Special Moments Collection 2013 (except I've altered her cross necklace)

The stamps for the above two adorable Tilda's are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where there's a large selection of other Magnolia stamps--both full-size and mini.  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 Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies from various companies and other crafting items.

These are the dies I've used that are also available from Magnolia-licious:
- Poppystamps 827 Picket Fence
- Memory Box 98705 Manor House
- Memory Box 98333 Honeyblossom Spring
- Impression Obsession 55 Leafy Branch (for the tree)

Diana offers discounted prices, excellent customer services and you get to earn 2% in-store credit to boot.
