Whilst just browsing Google today I came across a Yahoo Group forum in America which bases its entire imaging on Tilda stamps only - MAGNOLIAfirstname.lastname@example.org. So I thought I would have a go at the first weeks sketch so this is what I came up with. I coloured in Tilda with Sledge using my distressed inks which are my favourite at the moment and used Craft Twinkles Writer for the glittery effects. The backing papers are Dovecraft Winter Wonderland, the snowflakes are Craftime, flowers Handmade Art, sentiment is Express Yourself DIY and the ribbon is from my stash.

This stamp is my latest investment and I absolutely love her. I coloured the Whiff of Joy - Lizzie with Muff once again with my distressed ink. Think if I can keep using these I will hopefully get better as prefer them to the promarkers. I cut her out with my oval nestabilities on my sissix machine and mounted it with sticky pads onto Dovecraft Winter Wonderland backing paper. I cut some snowflakes out of sissix cardstock using a cuttlebug die and used Craft Twinkles glitter paint crystal to give them a sparkle effect. Sentiment is from craftworkcards.co.uk which I found at the Hobbycraft Show NEC last Saturday. I used a blue ink pad to edge both the stamped image and sentiment. Blue ribbon is from my stash.

I started making this card and realised after that I'd done it in 20 minutes so thought it could be put in the ABC challenge as well as Lily of the Valley. I used the Lily of Valley Scarlet fairy edged with blue ink, backing papers also from the Lily of the Valleydiy Christmas Fairies set, blue glitter snowflakes Craftime and sentiment Express Yourself
It was great to receive a Whiff of Joy stamped image amongst some blog candy I won so what better than to have a go at this challenge being my first! I used watercolours and glitterglue to colour in the image and distressed around the edge of the image card with green ink. I used backing papers from DCWV Christmas multistack Christmas Wishes. The gold embellishments from my stash. The green embellishments from the same blog candy I won.

This is the candy I won on the Crafty Creations (formerly SBS18 challenge) blogspot. I am so thrilled as there are many stamped images I will love using. The card that came with it I absolutely love. I have only been using stamped images on cards for the last few months so it just shows the more stamped image cards you post and enter into blog candy's the sooner you will have a chance of winning - just like I did.

Oh my god couldn't believe it when I won some blog candy from MichelleO one of the DT members who design for MagnoliaV'sStampavie blog. I'm really looking forward in receiving the blog candy as I'm really getting into the stamping now.
I also created this birthday card for some friends' of ours whose daughter was 21 last week. When we took it around to her Sunday she was really thrilled with it and said that she would keep it as a memento of her birthday. Also she was one of my 'little' bridesmaids along with 5 others when I got married in June 2000. Not so little now -how time flies by!
