Anything Goes at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge Blog!
Happy Sunday Everyone!!!! I hope that you have begun a marvelous New Year! I have great news in that all of the snow is GONE!!!! And it has been a lovely couple of days!!! What could be a better way to start the new year?!?!?
It’s all change at Just Magnolia for 2011! We have decided to change the challenges from this week on to allow hÄnglar & stÄnglar stamps to be used along with Magnolias. We, the DT, have thought long and hard about this and think it will be a great move forward for the challenge blog. The sweet hÄnglars are becoming easier to get now (certainly for the UK girls now that the lovely people at hÄnglar & stÄnglar are selling their stamps on EBay.
So, we have a new banner to reflect this change which comes into effect with our newest challenge. If you still wish to only use Magnolia stamps that’s absolutely fine, but I am sure there are a lot of you out there that will be delighted to have an extra excuse to ink up your hÄnglars! I hope you will swing over to the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge Blog and join with us this week where anything goes as long as you use a Magnolia or hÄnglar & stÄnglar image. We have 2 fabulous prizes given by our 2 wonderful sponsors: The Ribbon Girl and Embellishments.DE.
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting, and the DP is from the Crazy Love Collection by BoBunny. All major panels are machine stitched. I also used a darling hÄnglar & stÄnglar image which was a gift from the very talented Gunilla of Sweden...thank you so much, Sweetie!!! Just love her!!! She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. For the horizontal I used Dark Brown Jute String from Really Reasonable Ribbon, tying it into a bow to dangle a double heart charm. For the floral treatment I used a Nellie Snellen Heart die cut and padded it with 10mm Open Roses and Gypsophilia Stems from Wild Orchid Crafts. To finish the front I added chocolate pearls to soften all of the corners.
Here is the simple inside of my card--I used the same papers, flowers, and only added a pink paper doily and a Love brad.
Thank you so much for swinging by to see what's happening on my little blog!
