It's the beginning of the month (already!! again!!) and it's time for our Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge. We don’t have a tutorial for you this month, instead the challenge is Fold It. To qualify for the fabulous $25 voucher from Simon Says Stamp all you need to do is have a minimum of 2 folds on your project and use a Magnolia image. Nice and easy this month.
I have made a gate-fold card – wow it’s ages and ages since I made one of these. I’ve set the folds off centre for something a bit different. I have used the gorgeous Princess Tilda that I got (along with another 15 lol) at the NEC last weekend. She is for sure my all time very favourite Magnolia stamp. She is going to take a lot of beating I think. It’s such a shame I couldn’t do her justice with the Copics but I don’t have my distress inks yet so had to go with the Copics. I think I will have to go out on Saturday and buy some reinkers to tide me over till I get my beloved inks back.
I have used papers from the DCWV Sweet glitter stack. I’ve stamped some Magnolia roses and edged with Stickles for the inside of the card. The sentiment is also Magnolia that I picked up at the NEC last weekend.
The gorgeous flowers are from – as always – Wild Orchid Crafts. I might have gone OTT with the flowers but I just can’t help myself lol. I go into a trance when I am working with their flowers lol. I’ve machine stitched around the edges in keeping with the papers.
Last one! Sheesh I went overboard with the photo’s as well as the flowers lol. The ribbon is from Mei Flower. I picked up loads of their organza ribbons at the NEC, the colours are delish and they are the only place I have found that stock the 25mm organza at a really good price.
I hope you will pop across to the JM blog and take a peek (or should that be drool) at the DT’s creations, they are drool-worthy this week!
Karen, this one’s yours if you want it hun x
