Magnolia Stamps!



OK, I'm sure you've all seen these adorable Tilda stamps? I've seen them on some of the blogs I frequent and decided to try to get a couple. I found them for sale on http://www.magnolia.nu/ and ordered some. I couldn't believe when they arrived in my mailbox a week after I ordered them! They came all the way from Sweden, how cool is that? I finally got a chance this weekend to play with them! I colored her in using my watercolor pencils first, then I picked the papers. I used my blender pens to blend the colors. I stamped Tilda on Whisper White and then matted it on Bashful Blue, I used Brilliant Blue as the base, the striped is from a pack of DCWV paper I have, and the flowers are from a pack I bought at Archiver's, sorry don't know the brand. Let me just tell you about the location of the flowers. I pulled this little pouch out, that holds the flowers, and I was going to grab the blue one to see if I liked it, well I grabbed the blue and white and they fell on the card, literally in the place they are right now! I really liked how they looked and decided to leave them there! That was really cool!.

Next I used another one I bought to make my DD's Easter Card:

This one was a little simpler. I used my Creative Memories cutting system to do the ovals. The largest oval is Pretty in Pink, the next oval is Spring Fling Designer Series Paper and the small oval is Whisper White. Originally I was going to layer these evenly one on top of the other, but I wanted more of the DS paper. The base of the card is Sage Shadow. Isn't she cute?
Hope everyone had a Happy Easter! We enjoyed the time with our family! And now it is snowing!

Yes these are the cutest! But...I went on the Magnolia.nu website and couldn't find, for example, Tilda with Snowballs or
Tilda with the swirling wind. Do you know where to get these? I did place an order (sucker that I am), but really wanted the wintry ones. Thanks for any input.
