UK STampers have got a show & tell on at the moment

on how to store Magnolia and Sugar Nellie stamps.

The pictures included in that post are my own current solution to this problem.  Check it out here.

We’d love you to join in with the debate.

Here’s the picture from last night’s post

I look forward to hearing what you have to say about it.

I do think that I will probably do another one like it, but using brown or pink rather than the black.

I’m really tired tonight, and think that possibly I might slope off to bed shortly with some colouring, a hot water bottle and my snuggly bed jacket – is old creeping up on me do ya think?

Cute Card Thursday – Challenge 5 – Wings

recently I discovered a great new challenge blog, and this is my first ever entry for it.

It had to be as the name suggests, cute, and Challenge 5 was something with wings……had to be a Magnolia of course.  An oversized tag to be precise.  It’ll probably form part of my Godaughter’s birthday card next month.


I have to admit recently to being a bit petulant about Magnolia’s (every one who’s a regular reader knows I love ’em) and haven’t bought any since November last year.

The only problem with my petulant attitude is that I am the only one that it’s hurting.  Especially as I got a look at the new troll ones in real life last week when I went to see Caz……… I decided that enough is most certainly enough and I have to forgive and forget that they lost Guy’s Christmas order, never apologised when we eventually got to speak to somebody in person, and never offered to fill the order even when we faxed them a copy ……….. that just the way it is, everybody deserves more than once chance, take a deep breath and be a big girl (I got loads of other lovely stuff for Christmas right!) – then I can stop missing out all the new lovely yummy stuff they’ve released.

Now I’ve got that off my chest I feel much better.

A really quick card for my Darling Husband



it’s not vastly masculine….but it’s the sentiment behind it – the central stamp image was the one I used on our Wedding invitations 11 years ago. 

Stamps:  Heart (Magnolia Stamp Club Nov/Dec 07), Heart with flowers (All Night Media), inside is “Thinking of you” (SU) but I’ve also written always and forever underneath it in my own handwriting.

Coloured with COPIC markers and using Pallete Noir and Red Magic Dewdrop.

Circle Nestabilities with semi-circles cut out of each layer, and MM black stitched ribbon tied round (see, I love him enough to use the last of this precious supply of ribbon on him!).

Non Cute card for a change


I actually broke out my embossing powders and Ecoline inks last night to make a birthday card or two for some friends next week.


How to:

Stamp the Savvy Dahlia both in Perfect Puleria & Aegean Blue, and tie around the purple ribbon.

Then prepare the background image by stamping the heart image from the Magenta Nov/Dec Stamp Club, and then emboss with Chiaro Flo embossing powder.

Paint over the whole thing with the Magenta Ecoline, allowing light and dark areas.  When dry, iron off the EP to leave the white image.  Stamp the vine from the Nov/Dec pack, and colour in with G16 marker, add Peralidoodles to the small dots on the image.

Over stamp the Magenta flower image in Palette Noir ink, and add the metal flowers/Prima.  Matt onto the Razzleberry Light cardstock, and ink with Pefect Pulmeria Versamagic.  Mount on the front of the card.

Place tiny dots of Perlidoodles in both Pink and Pearl in the centres of the stamped Dahlia images.  Also add three larger dots of Pearlidoodles in the top and bottom righthand edges.

As usual, you can click on the image to view larger.
