Stamp & Create Product Spotlight ~ Magnolia Stamps

Happy Monday! I hope that everybody is well and that those who were in the path of the hurricane are safe and sound. By the time it hit my area it was a tropical storm. Yesterday we had high winds and torrential downpours. It was definitely a day to stay put indoors.

Today’s card is for this week’s Stamp & Create Product Spotlight which is Magnolia Stamps! Yippee! I was so excited when Lacey announced that she would start carrying these cuties! I picked the sweet Nurse Tilda and created a  criss-cross pocket card. I made a video a while back showing how to make these cute card folds. If you want to take a wee peek, it can be found ~here~.

The image was colored in with Copic Sketch markers to match the pretty patterned paper from Echo Park's For the Record 6x6 pad. I used Tim Holtz Idea-Ology corners, on the focal image panel and I must say that I really {heart} these. The add so much pizzaz to your creation. I used a Basic Grey's Oliver Epoxy Clip, and that served as a pull up tab for my insert panel. To complete my embellies, I used a  Jenni Bowlin Vintage Red Button, and some May Arts Crochet Lace.

I just re-stamped the image but this time in a Versa Sepia ink and left it uncolored. I like this look a lot. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps and was stamped with Jenni Bowlin Cough Syrup ink. Here’s a close-up of Nurse Tilda:

I am going to enter my card in this week’s Just Magnolia & Hanglar challenge. They have a fun bingo card challenge going on! The line I chose was pins, buttons, ribbon/lace! (I hope my clip qualifies under as a type of pin! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day my friends!
