My First Magnolia Card

A few weeks ago I came across a line of rubber stamps that features the most adorable little girl. The stamps are called Magnolia and I am quickly becoming addicted. Since receiving my first order two weeks ago I already own six stamps with another 5 on the way. 

Tilda and Edwin are the characters from this company and come in an unbelievable variety of scenes. I am really drawn to those that are sitting. These little kids can then be masked and stamped again so they appear to be sitting on any number of items - benches, chairs, jars, etc.

The members of the Magnolia-lious group on Yahoo are the worst type of enablers. They create the most gorgeous cards which feed my addiction and force me to order more. Magnolia-lious seems to be the favorite vendor for these stamps so check them out! 

A member of this group, Stephanie Hester, posted a link to her blog - My Card Shack - where she shared her Easel Card with Note Holder.  Stephanie is incredibly talented so I couldn't resist and just had to make one of my own featuring Edwin with Pen.  I changed the measurements of the card a bit in order to hold standard 3 x 3 post-it notes and included a little ribbon to keep it closed.  I took a bunch of photos while I made this and will be happy to provide instructions and measurements in my next blog post. In the meantime, I'm happy with the results and hope you like it!
