My very own Magnolias – Part 1

Thanks to Kristie, the wonderful Magnolia Down Under Challenges and some of my friends who love the cards I have made with Tilda, I have finally succumbed and purchased some Tilda stamps of my own. Over the next little while I will show you some of my creations. As a couple won’t arrive until late July, I will have plenty of time to play with the ones that arrived yesterday. I couldn’t believe how quickly they turned up as I only ordered them on Saturday night and they had to travel all the way from WA [usually a good week by mail]. Thanks very much for such great service Bec. Why don’t you check out Bizzy Becs and see all the great things she has to sell.

Today, I have put together a couple of very different cards using Tilda with a Bee. My Sizzix BigKick is finally getting some use, as are my new DSPs which arrived this week also. It always surprises me how different the same image can look just by using different themes and colours.  Just leave a comment and let me know what you think of  them.

As always, supplies are by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise stated.

One thought on “My very own Magnolias – Part 1

  1. I like the different tones(the colours) and that for the Autumn one how you’ve got the paper and then stamped on the trees… ve-ery lovely. The other one is just as nice, but better (my personal opinion) because Iike the colours better. Still you’ve done a great – well, actually, now that I come to think of it, EXCELLENT job again, so keep up the great work and… SLOW down ’cause i’m falling behind!
