Magnolia Doily heaven....

Hello,

Hope you are all well and having a great week. I can't believe the weather the last couple of days here it is so HOT and sunny I even went to the seaside yesterday. So hope you too are enjoying the last little bits of good weather.


I was so happy when I got home too as I had a parcel waiting for me from Crafts U Love with some of the new Magnolia dies and just had to use the new Doily Die. I love it and know I will be using it lots more. The lace detail matches her socks which is what I love about the Magnolia products they pick up little details like that and it is so much easier for your card to flow. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads and die cut this with a nestie oval. This and everything else on my card I have distressed with vintage photo. The sparkle is star dust stickles.


Thank you so very much for visiting me and I wish you all a very happy rest of your week!

love

Adorable Kim. I did not see the doily last weekend when I was away, but I was lucky enough to get the tag and the swirl and leaf, very happy with them. Your card looks stunning wiht this doily. Debbiexx

Nannieflash said...

Hi Kim glad you managed to get the die to work, I had great difficulty as it means you have to turn the paper over to get the circle right, as its only half a die shape not a full circle.
Beautiful card love the colouring its gorgeous. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Tracey T said...

What a lovely card, Kim. I treated myself to the doily die recently but hadn't realised it would only be a half circle. I'm struggling to get the two halves to match up - if you get chance on your blog would you be able to explain how you've managed this so beautifully? I know that Jacquie at Cats Whiskers is in the same position as me and would be very grateful! Tracey T x
