Just Magnolia Challenge and Wags'nWhiskers Challenge
Just Magnolia - Simon Says Stamp Monthly Challenge
As promised, we're back with our first Simon Says Stamp monthly challenge! We are so excited - this has been in the planning for weeks and weeks and today's the day we get to show our creations to you all! Heidi from Simon Says Stamp has very generously agreed to sponsor this monthly challenge and the prize is .........
a whopping .......
$50 voucher to spend on what you want in their store!
With over 100,000 items in stock, Simon is proud to offer the best selection of Rubber Stamps, Scrapbooking, Artist Trading Cards, Altered Art, and Paper Crafting Supplies in the world!
Now, because this is a special challenge with an extra special prize the theme is a bit more challenging but we know you can all do it! This month the challenge is to Distress your card or project. We posted Chris Darks fabulous tutorial on Distressing yesterday, you can find it Here. Just remember to be in the draw for the prize you MUST use a Magnolia stamp.
We also have the lovely Dawny Pas our GDT this month so to see Dawnys fabulous card and the rest of the breathtaking creations from my fellow DT Divas just pop over to the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog.
I was feeling really fed up yesterday, and then plop my fantastic new Christmas Magnolias landed on the doormat, you have never seen anyone cheer up so quickly. I was going to wait until I got to the NEC to get the stamps but when the e-mail from Crafts U Love arrived I couldn't wait.
Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks, the papers are the New Christmas Release Magnolia Collection. I have roughed up (Distressed) the edges with Tim Holtzs distress tool, then rubbed Distress Ink around them. The Flowers ate from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lace is from Tabby Crafts
Woooo Hoooo only one more sleep before I meet my JM friends and many more of you, cannot wait.
Challenge 1 - Make them Sparkle
The rules are very simple... you need to use a Wags 'n Whiskers image on your card or project. We don't mind you combining other challenges with ours... the more the merrier!!!!
Each week we will choose a winner who will win a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp of their choice!! You already own our first release? No problems... you get first dibs on a stamp from our next release!!!
You don't own any Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps just yet?...... then click Here to purchase.
I have again used Distress Inks to colour my image and added as much Glamour Dust as I could to the Dress, Wings and Butterflies. The papers are again from the my scrap drawer, I am trying to clear as much stash as possible to make room for any new purchases I make tomorrow lol!. Large Rose, Hat Pin and lace are from Tabby Crafts">, and the bling is by Prima.
I hope we see lots of creations from you using these fabulous stamps.
Well what a long post this has been, I will try to shedule my Penny Black Card for tomorrow and will be back on line on Sunday, hopefully with some piccies of NEC.
Have a lovely weekend everyone
Thanks for looking
