Magnolia-licious blog hop - background stamps only!

Happy Monday everyone! Today, we're having a really fun blog hop , and it involves using only background stamps from Magnolia-licious. No Tilda, no Edwin, no animals, just backgrounds. Boy oh boy. It was really hard cause I just automatically pair the backgrounds with the adorable angels! For my card today, I chose to use this beautiful cake from Magnolia-licious (looks like it's out of stock right now) and #516 rolling pin. Have you been to see Diana's new store front? Oh my gosh! I love it! It's soooo user friendly! Awesome stuff, I'm tellin' ya! You have GOT to take a peek at it! You're going to love it too! And you can use PayPal now too! YAY!

The images are colored with Copic markers. The DP is MME Laundry Line and cardstock is Bazzil. The rolling pin was put through my printer for the sentiment, then popped up for dimension. The mat for the cake is also popped up. I love this paper, it's all glittery and has lots of texture! I also used round Nestabilities and my new Martha Stewart border punch.

Now if you arrived here from the infamously talented Kerry Donovan-Casey, you are on the right track! If not, you will want to go back and start at the most awesome card creator, Jacque Beddingfield so you don't miss a bit of all the yumminess! If you want a chance to win the blog candy I've got pictured below, then please leave a comment on this post by midnight on Saturday, 11/21/09. I will pull a winner via random.org next Sunday. Once you're done here, please hop along to the ever wonderful artist, Cheryl Rowley! Her coloring skills will knock your socks off! When you're done with the blog hop, be sure and visit Magnolia-licious Highlites for information on how you can play along and win a prize of two Magnolia stamps!



So that's it for today! Thanks so much for playing along with our blog hop today! Thanks for visitng me today and I hope you come back tomorrow. Papertake Weekly is being sponsored by Peggy Loves Vintage! FUN STUFF!!!! HUGS!
