Magnolia stamp club kits selections.

I have been buying the Magnolia stamp kits collections for almost a year now . Some I have been really happy with and others less so.  They are always a mixed bag of things and although I love receiving them in the post, they are not always a " WOW moment" and consequently not used as much as they should be. So with this in mind, I have decided to get creative with them. I received a fab Magnolia magazine in the post from the lovely Wynneth over at Craftbubble for a caption contest I won on the CMLI group a few weeks back. ( Thanks Wynneth, I am a very lucky girl) well, flicking through the latest issue I decided to dig out the " nautical" stamp kit  and I set myself the challenge of using more than one of the stamps on my creation. It certainly made me think a bit about how I sometimes rely too heavily on far  too many embellishments, when actually I could save myself a packet and be more creative with the hundreds ( ha hum) of stamps that I already own. Needless to say my images have been prisma coloured and the papers are pink petticoat, although I don't think the small dotty paper is as I can't find the right matching colour in my Pink Petticoat collections. It was one I printed ages ago, but didn't get round to using...naughty me! The sentiment ribbon is from Pink Petticoat too. Next week I'm going to try and have a play with a different stamp club kit....hmnnn not sure which yet, you'll just have to wait and see!!

very cute & so nice to see someone using more than one image on a project. I NEED to do that also as I have MANY stamps that are just sitting waiting for the proper card. You've inspired me to get creative & give this a try.
Hugs, Janie

This is great. I don't have any of the Magnolia stamps but I was given some images from this nautical kit and found them some of the best to use. Well done for setting yourself the challenge of using those uninked stamps- can't wait to see what you come up with next week.

Hey Rosie, these stamps are so cute and you should definitely use them more. Have to admit though I have been buying more and more stamps and not using them, I really should make more of an effort :) xx
