Hello everyone! Happy Happy Easter!!
Today, I have a happy Easter card for you. This card was made with my brand new Magnolia stamp that I got from iCopic.com, called Tilda with Hanging Rabbit! This is one from the brand new line Butterfly Dreams.
This is the FIRST EVER Magnolia stamp that I have ever owned so below I am going to talk a little big about Magnolia stamps and my first impressions.
Here is my card:
- The image is Magnolia’s Tilda with Hanging Rabbit.
- I colored the image in with the folowing Copic colors from iCopic: E00, E000*, E0000, E31, E33, E35, RV00, RV000, RV02 (used for the airbrushed background), W1, W3, W5, BG000*, BG0000, and BG02.
- The colors with a * beside them are brand new Ciao colors. They already came in Sketch colors, but if you are like me and prefer the Ciao markers, then you are in luck!!
- I created the background using my Airbrush system and Air Compressor. I LOVE AIRBRUSHING!!!
- The “Easter Blessings” sentiment was made with two of the SP and Company Mix ‘n Match stamp sets: Mix ‘N Match: Basics (for the “Easter”) and Mix ‘N Match: Occasions (for the “Blessings”).
- The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Springtime 6X6 paper pad. I just want to add, I LOVE that Echo Park started to make 6X6 paper pads, and I LOVE how they are put together. I will be showing you a video of these paper pads, because they are such great quality.
- The pink patterned paper was punched with the Stampin’ UP Scallop Edge Punch to make the cute scallops.
- The card base is Baja Breeze cardstock.
Now, let me tell you a little about Magnolia stamps. First off, this is my first one because they are EXPENSIVE! Well, they are expensive because they are made and imported from Sweden. So being in the US, they are pricey because of shipping, duties, etc.
After having one and using it, they are worth it! They are extremely detailed images and stamp so nicely. They are great quality stamps. I was hesitant when I first received it because the rubber is not very deeply etched, but it turns out that it stamps PERFECTLY so that isn’t actually a problem at all.
And one more thing I loved, this stamp came already trimmed. If you have every purchased an untrimmed rubber stamp, you will know what a luxury it is to have a pre-trimmed stamp. I HATE using scissors in the first place, and trimming stamps is a major pain.
Well there you have it folks: a new card and a Magnolia mini review. Now head over to iCopic and pick yourself up a Magnolia stamp! I will be back tomorrow with a couple challenges for ya 🙂 Hope your Easter is fantastic.
