i have tried my luck and applied to become a member in a Design Team. And guess what i made it juhuuuu.... I found the call on blog. So i contacted Donna and we sent each other yesterday night emails back and forth and this morning i got the message from her that i made it. Now the fun thing for you is... if you hopp over to the new fabby new tilda & co challenge blog YOU have a chance to win every week some blog candy. All you need to do is create something with a magnolia image on it and post it there on the blog. You do not have to be a blogger yourself to play!!! just come and have fun showing off these cute Magnolia stamps. We can all learn from each other.
Here is one card i was able to show Donna in my application. I was not too happy with it but in the short peroid of time i had, i had no chance to make something more "exciting". This card was already made and ready to post today.
Here is the link for the blog:
to my to my card... i liked that patterend paper with the image cause i felt that the pattern sort of repaeds in her skirt. than i was thinking to break the paper a bit up with some plain paper at the bottom but at the end by playing around i thought the extra wide grossgrain is just fine and it doesnt need too much more. i always try to go in eigher one direction... more embellishments but less paper going on or more paper (different pattern, cuts or ancles) and less embellishments. Thats just my recipie for my cards.
Paper: River Rock, Real Red, White, Dutch Girl
Stamps: Magnolia, Crafty Secrets "Bird Notes"
Embellishments: Wide Red Grosgrain Stampin up, Making Memories heartshaped brads
