Magnolia down under challenge and GDT call

These cards are for Magnolia Down Under's challenge which this fortnight is Valentines. They are also having a GDT call for a 6 month position so if you like the challenge and would like to be on the GDT follow the link bellow for all the details.


For both cards I have used stamps that I got from the winter stamp club (I do love the stamp club). I have coloured them both with promarkers and added touches of sparkle with sakura stardust pens.
This first card I have kept simple I cut some hearts of of red textured paper and drew some faux stitching round the edges and edged the card in the same way. The sentiment is from The Greetings Farm and stamped directly onto the card blank. then I arranged the hearts across the page and stuck them on 1mm foam pads so they are raised slightly from the card. This super cute Tilda is on 2mm foam pads to add a bit more depth and make her stand out more than the hearts.

This second card I have used a peel off from my stash for the sentiment and some brown sparkly card stock. The blue swirly paper is from Designers extreme vol III. the white layer behind Edwin I have used some red chalk to add a distressed effect and the image itself I have masked so he is sitting on a chair. The heart is another magnolia stamp that I have in my ever growing collection. I have again used foam pads to raise the images from the background Edwin is on 2mm pads and the heart is on 1mm pads. The little pearly hearts down either side are from my stash.
