Like a Dream......

I gor my FIRST Magnolia stamp! YEAH ME! This stamp inked up like a dream too! OMG! I was able to actually use my first stamp off too! Now THAT'S awesome!! I just love tulips, pink tulips and when I saw this one I knew I had to have my first Magnolia and, now, I have NO regrets but have already figured on my next one! LOL! Take a look at what I did with it;



I used scraps, except for the base to create this little cutie. I also used my, new to me, Martha Stewart border punch and some little dot thingies (<-- technical term there!) from Bella! I colored her in with my Koh-I-Nor Pencils and my Gamsol. I chose to leave her dress white too as it reminded me of a dress my youngest had when she was little.....SOOO cute.... anyway! The image is cut out with my Coluzzle but since I didn't really want that much blank space around her I did the "out of the box" technique! If you're curious on what that is then check out the resource pages on Splitcoast Stampers. That place is an AWESOME wealth of information, friends, advice and SO much more!

Let me know what you think!

Until next time....

What a cute card. The background paper you used goes so perfect. Isn't it great when we can use up some scraps to create beautiful stuff? :)

Could you please tell where on SCS to find the "out of the box" technique? I could not find it and have been wondering about this for a few days now since I have seen other cards using this. Thanks so much.
