Magnolias are in the HOOOOOOOOOOUSE!!!



Phebe gave me the go-ahead to let you all know that she got another shipment of Magnolias yesterday afternoon at The Town Scrapper!!! Woooohoooooo!!! This time the lovelies are from the Shabby Chic line that has been released!! There are Tildas and Edwins and pets and accessories....aaaghh!! These ones are probably some of my favourites so far as they sort of resemble the old Holly Hobbie images, if you remember them, but only CUTER!!! Anyway, she has them all priced and ready to fly out the door, so if you'd like to place your order, I would call her or email her right away!!! (mpmeeder@sympatico.ca)

The card I'm sharing with you today features a couple of stamps that I picked up last week when I visited Phebe in Petrolia. I used this tiny little stool that is perfect for this leaning Tilda! (And I believe Phebe might have one or two of each of these images left from her last order too!) I stamped Tilda first using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink onto Wausau bright white cardstock (which I get from Walmart, super cheap!) and then masked Tilda and stamped the stool overtop, so it gives the illusion that she is leaning on it.



I pulled out some older Fancy Pants designer papers that are from the same line and coordinate and chose my colours from there. The rosey purple colour I used for her sweater, shoes and headband are a very pretty colour and when I went to find some cardstock to match, I was at a loss. Well, then I remembered some retired SU cardstock that I had and wouldn't you know, old Rose Romance is a perfect match!!! I made a tag using Blush Blossom and the sentiment is from a Papertrey set and added some stitched grosgrain ribbon, added some Primas and glitter brads, and of course added some Stardust Stickles on her wings. The last thing I did was add some dotted highlights using a tiny paintbrush and some white acrylic paint. I learned this neat little trick from my pal, Inge.

Anyway, I'm off to work all day today...yick!! Hopefully you get to stamp and scrap! And maybe even get your hands on some Magnolia stamps for yourself!!! Have a great day!!
