Playing With My New Magnolia Stamps!


I had a wonderful idea of how this would turn out in my head - but I just couldn't get it to live up to my expectations! Don't get me wrong - I'm still happy with it but I prefer the one that's still rattling around in my head - LOL.

I've made a recessed window card and the tutorial for these can be found on Splitcoast Stampers HERE. You can see the recess better in this picture on the left. It adds a wonderful dimension to your cards. This card is meant for a special friend and I really wanted to send her a spray of flowers and have Tilda present them in her own beautiful style. You can't tell from the photos but Tilda's drop earrings are made up of mini rhinestones and I've added some Ice Stickles to the hem of her dress, sleeves and the rose brooch. I figured this little gal needed some party bling as she was all dolled up!
The DP is from Magnolia's Lazy Summer range and is available at Kellie's Magnolia Down Under Store right now! I've paired the Magnolia papers with SU's Chocolate Chip and Kraft CS. Noble Tilda is from the newly released Raising the Ceiling range and is available for pre-order at Kellie's. The flowers and leaves are all from the fabulous Bizzy Bec's range - and the digi stamp is also from Bec's digital range.

This is gorgeous. Love it. Don't you just hate it when you picture something and just can't make it appear the way you see it in your head on the card. I do it all the time. It still looks fab though.

This is fantastic! I just adore the window with the flowers in and the magnolia sitting on the frame.

I know what you mean tho about the one in your head being of high expectations, but this in itself is gorgeous!!!

Debbie, Wow, love love love it. I have seen these framed/recessed window cards before, but never as beautiful as this. The flower arrangement is gorgeous and Tilda is so grown up perched up their in her heels and sparkly jewels. I'm sure your friend will treasure it forever. Thanks for the inspiration.
