Today is a little bittersweet for us at Magnolia-Licious. This beautiful piece was made by the talented Jane Johnson. It is an amazing work of art. The name of the stamp used is Unicorn with Text, from the Unicorn Collection. Jane has coloured this little Unicorn so adorably. The ribbon, yummmm, and those Foamiran flowers are gorgeous. This is Janes last card with the Magnolia-licious Design Team. Please join us in wishing Jane the very best in her new ventures! We loved having you on the team and will miss you.

Just in case you have missed it, we have a Design Team Call out, you can read about it here!

Now onto some exciting news! Shawn has been working hard to get the store all stocked up with the new Foamiran order, and he has put together a few kits. These kits are perfect, especially if you are new to flower making with Foamiran. Everything comes together, so you don't have to buy anything additional to make the flowers.

The Silk Foamiran only comes in white, but it's so easy to add whatever colour you want your flower to be!  I will link these up down below so you can check them out yourselves!

Tilda Swinging From the Country Girl Release

October 17, 2017

Hi Magnolia Lovers,

Oh do I have some cuteness to share with you today. I have combined multiple stamps in today's card focusing on the new 2017 Country Girl Collection of stamps by Magnolia.

Using both the Happy Swing stamp along with the Porch Tilda stamp I used the masking technique to create this scene. I also added tree limbs above by stamping the swing branch and fussy cutting it to complete the scene. All of these beautiful stamps were colored using Copic markers. I also used some brand spanking new Lemon Craft Paper. This collection called "Heart Painted" comes in a 6x6" pad and consists of a beautiful floral theme. Very vintage! Check out all of the brand new Lemon Craft papers by clicking HERE.

Last but not least are my handmade flowers. These are created using Magnolia-Licious' Foamiran in pink. I cut the Foamiran using the Whimsy Dies set called "Peony Flower Dies". We have just gotten in this Whimsy die set along with 3 others. I shaded my flower petals using Gelatos and added some Stamens which are also available at Magnolia-licious.

I hope I've been able to inspire you today. If you would like to see more of my work you can just click my name below. Thank you for stopping by and happy stamping!

Rosette used an older Magnolia stamp - Tilda with Wedding Gifts - 2010- but used as if she was holding Christmas gifts for her loved ones. She used Lemoncraft's Christmas Carols papers. The postcard is part of one of the papers from Pion's Long Time Ago in Bethlehem Collection.

You can find my Lemon Craft Paper at my store anytime. 

I still have a selection of Pion Paper in the store as well. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
