Trolls - and a challenge for YOU!

Hi, today i want to show you two cards I made using the cute stamps from Magnolia's new troll line. The card is a double pocket card click for Tutorial - you can use it to add two sentiments like I did or on one tag a sentiment and write on the second tag. This card does not open! The first card is smaller to fit the American standart invitation size envelopes - the second card is a bit bigger. In the next post i will show you step by step how to make these fun cards.

I would like to challenge you to try one yourself. Post your project on your blog etc, and mention Pretty Pressings blog with a link. Then leave a comment here with the link to your blog or direct post. Thank you ! I will upload all pictures into a slideshow and post your submissions on my blog, for everybody to see next Monday.

Have fun and Iam curious what you will create.



Stamps: Magnolia: Maertha, mushroom, oak leaves,Stampin up: Weathered and In my thoughts for sentimentsAccessories: Pumpkin Pie and Celery Grossgrain, Wild Wasabi double stiched, Chocolate chip Grosgrain,Ink: Various refiller, Creamy Caramel on background, Chocolate Chip for sentiment, Twinkeling H2O
Paper/CS: Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava

Das ist eine tolle Kartenform. Mal sehen ob ich das hinbekomme. Ich krieg mein ScorPal erst in ein paar Tagen/Woche. Vielleicht klappt es auch ohne.

Ach ja, die Karten sehen super aus.

Brilliant, I love this style. Those papers are so gorgeous. Great stamp too.

Thanks for the tutorial x

Tanja said...

Ich finde die Kartenform wunderbar. Die sind auch wieder so schön geworden. Die Trolle würden mir besser als Szene im Wald gefallen, so mag ich sie nicht so recht...
Ansonsten, wie immer super coloriert und tolles HG Papier !!! Klasse !!!
