Magnolia down under guest DT call

The Magnolia down under store are having a guest DT call. I am falling more and more inlove with these cuties as you might have noticed. I actually have 3 or 4 brand new stamps that I haven't had the chance to ink up yet.

Kellie (the owner) wants to see your favourite creations. I chose mine to be all Magnolias. Here goes. eeek!
It's 8 cards that I've done in the last couple of months. There are a lot of pics, but it's just 8 cards :) I haven't commented much on them, thought they would (hopefully) speak for themselves :)

What I can mention is that I love working with my promarkers. Most of the cards I have done here are for some sort of challenge. I like doing things a bit differently, it might not always turn out brilliant, but I like the idea. I like all sorts of styles, but I'd love to learn more to work with the vintage distressed look.

Here I had a square sketch to follow that I re-made into a folded card. It was my first try on sewing I think. I like this card because it's quite innovative and I even made one of the decorations myself. I took a big red brad, stamped with a textstamp and embossed it with gold ink. You can see it in the middle of one of the flowers.

Here I worked with a 3D challenge. I just went totally overboard with it and loved every second! I'm especially proud of the flower I cut out and poured 3D glaze over. It's part of the patterned background paper, but I made it stand out by coiling it a little bit. Tilda is mounted on 3D tape.

This is my latest magnolia card and stamp. I'm trying a more distressed look lately. Loved working with this stamp!

I worked a lot with shading on this card. I really wanted it to look like she gets light from the flower/snowflake.

A more simple card for a sketchchallenge. I think it was a rectangle they had and I made it an arrow. Thought it worked perfectly with this image. I also doodled little "x-es" and "o-s" around the image.

Handmade flowers. The middle of the upper left flower is handmade.

A graduation card for my cousin. I'm extremely proud of this one :)

Ok, so now you've seen a little bit of what I do, thanks for looking. And for my loyal readers: keep your fingers crossed :)
