So another range of stamps I have recently started stocking are Magnolia Rubber Stamps. They are know as the sitting characters, and the range in which I am stocking is based around two main characters, Tilda and Edwin.
I'm sure you have seen them on many blogs as they are very popular. They are a beautiful stamp to use with a clean, crisp image. And great for colouring in with Copic's.
It used to be quite hard to try and find someone who stocked them here in Australia, but I have seen them popping up on a few online stores.
Recently they released there own Shabby Chic Paper Flowers which include heaps of styles and colours available: Vintage Roses, Orchids, Cherry Blossoms, Vintage Lily's, Gardenias. I don't have all of them but I do have quite a variety to choose from.
Magnolia have released there own magazine: Magnolia Ink Magazine.
This is a great magazine/book which it full of great ideas and tutorials.(I first stumbled across this at a newsagency in Maroochydore, but it was all too hard for them to tell me if they were going to stock it again!!)But I do have them in stock at Creations In Paper.
So with saying all of that, I have been going through a phase of making Easel Cards, I just love them. Easy to do once you get the hang of them, below is a Mother's Day card I made using one of my Magnolia Stamps.
