Okay sooooooooooooo around about the beginning of July or so, there was a post over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog asking for submissions for Magnolia creations from anyone who wanted to be featured on the back cover of the Fall 2011 Magnolia Ink Magazine!
Well guess what...................(Thanks to my fellow fairy Margreet for letting me know) after e-mailing Steph, she informed me that one of my older creations got chosen to be on the back cover along with some other super talented ladies' creations! You can read about it HERE on the Simon Says Stamp blog.
The set that will be featured is in this post HERE (or see below).
You can bet your booty I am gonna be buying that issue! LOL
I guess then it'll be safe to say "I've been published"! Yahoo! *happy dance*
So as not to forget about my Magnolia stamps (like that's even possible), I created a card yesterday as a celebration of sorts, and of course, because I want to take part is some awesome challenges! Teehee!
I have used my Exploring Tilda masked with the Cellar Door stamp. Something I have not done in a LONG time.......masking.....OMWORD.....I forgot how much work it is! LOL. But I love the overall effect! Also I forgot how much room it would take up; practically the whole card front!
Since I am in Canada, it took a little while for these stamps to arrive & in the meantime I kept thinking about what I was going to do with them.............and this creation was on my list, then I saw SARA do one exactly like this! LOL. I told her she jumped into my mind & stole my thoughts.....BaWahhaaha!! See Sara's card here! The resemblance is uncanny!
Cheesecloth & ladybug - eBay
large wrinked blue ribbon- Really Reasonable Ribbons
wee flowers & touch of pink seam binding- Linda's Etsy shop
Speaking of those WORDZ, Kim has candy at her blog for a set of these stamps if you leave comments on every DT's members blogs each Friday until the end of Aug.
This is the JUSTWORDZ set:
So to meet the MDU challenge of Paper Tole, I have colored & cut Tilda's clothes out & popped them on as well as the ladybug (3 times) and the wee butterfly & insect beside the ladybug (2 times). I aslo added wire as antennas for the butterfly and other insect. Phew, my hand was sore afterwards!
Not to be missed are also the TOMIC challenge of stitching, Magnolia Mania of lace or ribbon, All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge of HOT HOT HOT days of summer & Dutch Magnolia lovers theme of Summertime.
I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
