It’s the first Friday of the month so time for our Special Monthly Challenge on Just Magnolia Challenge which as always is sponsored by Heidi and her team from Simon Says Stamp with a $30 voucher, and she even pays the shipping! 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!
From last month we are now running the Special Monthly Challenges with the theme -"Anything Goes". You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fab prize.
I decided to go for something different this week, not realising how difficult it would be to photograph.
I bought a make your own crackers kit lat year and had one left over so decided to use it for this challenge, it also gave me an excuse to use one of the Tiny Tildas I bought last year from Magnolia at the NEC.
The paper is a sheet by Best Collections that I bought from Oyster Craft, it was hard to cut it into strips as it is one of my strokables, I used the Martha Stewart Star Border punch on all 3 strips, then added Lovely Grey Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts.
My second card is another DT card this time for Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge where this month we have a fabulous Sketch by Bev with the added option of UNTRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS. Don’t forget toy DO NOT HAVE TO USE CRAFTERS COMPANION PRIDUCTS TO ENTER THIS CHALLENGE SO WHY NOT POP OVER HERE TO COME AND JOIN US.
I couldn’t resist using one of the awesome images from Crafter Companion’s Jayne Nestorenko Adorables Collection, The backing papers are from the CD that accompanies the Stamps, the backing papers on this CD are going to be so useful for all my Christmas projects they are stunning and with the Colourizer feature you can print them in any colour you choose.
The Sentiment is also from Waiting Stamp Plate. I have used the backing papers to also punch the Martha Stewart Snowflakes with I have glittered with Glamour Dust.
I feel really rough today, so I am going to take it easy and may even try to get a sleep
