Two for One and another SP


Just Magnolia Challenge

As always, Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring our special monthly challenge to the tune of a fab $25 voucher for you to spend in their store, and Heidi even pays the shipping!!

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 PAPER PLEATING. MinaMina done a fabulous tutorial for you to follow just click Here to go the tutorial. The DT have also followed the tutorial and have come up trumps with some amazing cards. Just remember to be in the draw for the prize you MUST use a Magnolia stamp.



I must say a big thank you to Mina her tutorial was so straight forward and easy to follow and it was something I have wanted to try for ages. I got carried away and made 2 cards, (same Image) and then couldn't decide which one I like the best so I will show you both of them.



Both images have been coloured with Distress Inks, the Brown and Pink card uses Magnola Papers and the all pink card is made from half a sheet of paper I found when tiding up, must do this more often as I really do find little treasures I forget I have!!!

The fabulous flowers, which have all been spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist, are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I have added crystal beads to one of the lovely Hat Pins I got from Whiff of Joy, Lace is from Tabby Crafts.






I promised you another sneak peek of the Spring release stamp collection from Lili of the Valley, which will be released at the end of the month. This awesome image if just called "Bridal Couple"


I have used Copics and Prismas to colour the image, The Chipboard heart has been spritzed with Sweet Pea Glimmer Mist then sprayed again with Pearl. The flowers are again from Wild Orchid Crafts. A Martha Stewart Border Punch from The Hobby House has been used on the darker paper, the papers are by Kaisercraft, they are from last years Valentines collection. The Mr and Mrs sentiment is from Whiff of Joy



Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
