Hi! I have a card to share with you today using some of the new Magnolia Little London collection stamps. I haven't bought any Magnolia stamps for ages, but this set really caught my eye, so I had to add a few of them to my collection and have a play as soon as they arrived!
I chose some of my favourite backing papers from the Kraftyhands Chic Boutique CD which you can currently get at a super duper price in their online shop! I cut two different sized square doilies with my Silhouette Cameo and layered them all up.
To create the focal image for the card, I stamped London Tilda, created a mask and then stamped the phone booth to make it look like its behind her. Then coloured with Copics, and created a faux stitch detail around the scene and the layers of backing paper already on the card.
Having stuck the image onto the card, I knew it needed more but struggled to decide what for a while. After die cutting several flowers and swirls, I decided to start again and print a double sided piece of paper using the two designs from the CD I had chosen as my backing papers. I die cut several Chinese roses from this paper, rolled and glued them to create the flowers, then cut the leaves using a pink Copic pen to colour the leaves while still in the die.
I then stamped sentiment onto some of the backing paper and die cut it with a Spellbinder circle (as I am rubbish at cutting circles freehand), and layered it onto a lacey circle. Finally gluing everything onto the card, which I think is rather pretty - I hope you agree!
