New Magnolia stamps...

I've finally finished my first card using one of the super cute new Magnolia stamps from the spring kit... surprisingly for me, I used the only Edwin stamp first - I think he's fab :o)  It's the first time I've had one of the Magnolia club sets (hubby bought them for me) and I can see me 'needing' each set now lol.





I've coloured Edwin and his starfish with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are digi ones from Pink Petticoat, printed onto linen card and they've all had the inky distressing treatment, the red textured cardstock is from Papermill Direct.  The sentiment is also Pink Petticoat.  The raffia, gingham ribbon and buttons are from my stash, as are the little shell beads - I've had these so long (never used) I can't even remember buying them!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Hope you've all had a fab Easter weekend!  We've done lots of family visiting and eaten far too much, my clothes are feeling worryingly tight and I really must start doing some exercise!  I'm probably very behind with commenting again - if I don't manage to visit you tonight, I'll have a proper catch up session tomorrow :o)

  3. Oh Lisa - this Edwin looks so cute! Cant wait to see what other images you get in the stamp kit! I have always fancied getting one myself, but I tend to buy them second hand.

    Lovely papers, great contrast with the red card too and your colouring is awesome! :)

  5. Edwin looks fab in his wee shorts! Love the digi papers printed onto linen card,too; they look great with that extra bit of texture. Have often been tempted to buy a Magnolia kit but am always worried that the stamps I like best won't be included! xx
