And I'm not afraid to use it! :-)
Yes, I had been looking on in envy as people all over blogland were making beeyoutiful cards featuring Magnolia stamps. The images are just lovely and really lend themselves to super pretty girlie cards (something I never thought I'd enjoy making originally, but here we are, lol).
And now, I have a Magnolia stamp of my very own!
The stamp I used is "Baseball Tilda" And I decided to make her team colour coral, which I then teamed up with some First Edition "Daydream" papers. I was originally going to go the whole hog with flowers and doilies and cheesecloth, etc. But I thought the sporty image didn't want anything too fussy, if you know what I mean. The colours haven't photographed as nicely as I'd have liked, but you get the idea...
The sentiment stamp is part of a teddy stamp set that came as a freebie with a mag I grabbed when I first started cardmaking (it was a father's day issue). Unfortunately I've lost the wrapper, so not sure who designed it! Please do let me know if you recognise it!
The brad in the corner is one I got around about the same time... I bought a set of them, and to date still hadn't used one!
In other news, have you all been following the LOTV bloghop today? If not, then what are you waiting for!? It was, frankly, a wonderful way to wake up, being greeted by so many fabulous cards with the sweetest stamps while enjoying my wake-up cup of tea! I can assure you that owning a Magnolia stamp has not in any way diminished my love for LOTV and all its adorableness! ;-)
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:
