Magnolia Violet Stamp So Cute, & So Underused!


Hello Dearest Readers,

Have you visited the Magnolia-licous Store lately? If you haven't been there, go and check out the new products Diana has listed. Diana is currently taking orders from the Doo-hickey Die Club, Vol. 2. I just received my Vol. 1 and love it! The dies are sweet, and you get a lot. Vol. 1 had 13 dies in it! Vol. 2 is Christmas themed and also has lots of dies! Once the supply is gone, they're gone for good. Also new to the store is the new Magnolia Pink Lemonade Collection. I'm tellin' ya, the stamps are getting cuter and cuter if that is at all possible!

It's that time again at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog - time for a new challenge! This time, the challenge is to create a card or project using a Magnolia accessory stamp. No Tildas or Edwins on this one! I am sure there is a stamp in your collection that hasn't been used in a while. It could be an animal, scenery, or object stamp. How's that sound?

I have had this adorable stamp for a while and just let it sit there waiting its turn to get inked up! LOL The name of the stamp is called "Violet." It is from the Chasing Butterflies Collection. I love that it is wrapped in what looks like newspaper.



The image was colored with Inktense Watercolor Pencils I added some lemon yellow embossing powder to the center of the flower to give it some texture. I did have the petals colored, but when I added some pink Kindyglitz to the sentiment, I thought, "What the heck, do the flower petals, too!" Well, I was very pleasantly surprised at how much better the flower looked with the pink glitter on it! It just "perked up" the card front!

The sentiment stamp is a Wee Stamp from a delightful group of stamps called Flower Fairies. It is my very favorite Wee Stamp(set). You can find it HERE. The lace and flowers are all from my supplies while the dies are Noor Design and Marianne Design as well as a Magnolia Doo-hickey Die, Lace Coaster. It is tucked behind the polka dotted mat. I cut it in half since only a little peek was showing. The paper is from Wild Rose Studio.

I sure hope you will join the Accessory Stamp Challenge! Please visit my teamies blogs to see what lovelies they have created! They are sooooooo cute! Don't forget to leave a comment on the team members' blogs to be in the running to win a prize from Diana. Besides, we love to be loved, LOL!



Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! I so appreciate you taking time to do that! Also, thank you for the sweet comments here and on my Facebook page and Magnolia-licious page. It means so much! I hope my card will give just a little inspiration.

XO,

Chris
