Our challenges run on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. We'd love for you to join in and submit your creations so we hope you get inky with a Magnolia image and play along with us. Deadline to enter the Pink and yellow colour challenge is November 22. Oooooooh and to encourage you all to join the Challenge Blog, Diana will be pulling random names as people join for fun surprise gifts ~ more people, more surprise gifts ~ woohoo! Soooo head on over for more exciting details and don't forget to check out the rest of the fabulous DT's creations for inspiration. Links to my teamies listed in my sidebar.
I've created my first ever Tri-Shutter card and used my favourite Princess Tilda for the main image. She is out of stock at the moment at the Magnolia-licious store but she is on re-order. This Tilda is one of my faves from the 2010 Fairytale Collection and she is so versatile for birthdays, thank yous or just because. Here's a frontal view of the card all folded up.
I followed Beate's fabbie video tutorial on how to make the Tri-Shutter card and used the Scor-Buddy (mini Scor-Pal) to neatly and perfectly align all my folds. Papers are from The Girls Paperie, Paper Girl Collection, and the yellow polka dot paper is MME from the Be-Loved Collection. Heart rhinestone, flower, charm, brad, rhinestones for the shoes and crown plus the ribbon are all from my stash. Sentiment is Stampin' Up ~ leaves punched with EK Success leaf punch and I also used a MS edge border punch. I used Stickles to add bling because all princesses have bling ~ lol.
Here's a view of the shutter card all opened up and unfolded. It's pretty cool once you've cut out and pasted all the paper on the different panels. I'd say that was the most time-consuming part about making the shutter card. But it was super easy and loads of fun to try something new.
AND to celebrate becoming part of the fabulous DT for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, I'm offering a $25 Gift Certificate for one lucky winner to spend at the Magnolia-licious store. Deadline to enter my candy is November 22 at 8 PM EST and I will announce a winner on November 23. How's that for an early Christmas present!
There are no requirements to be eligible for the candy but if you spread the word about the New Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog by posting the blinkie below on your sidebar, that would be greatly appreciated. If you'd like to follow my blog that would be great too but again NOT a requirement. Enter for a chance to win with Mr. Linky below but only ONCE please. HOWEVER, if you submit a creation in our Pink and Yellow challenge, you can enter my candy a SECOND TIME with Mr. Linky here. One lucky winner will be selected with Random.org.
