Just Magnolia DT - Paper Piecing / Totally Papercrafts - Say it with dies/punches

Morning Peeps!! Guess what, it's my favourite day of the week again lol! Time for new challenges over at Just Magnolia and Totally Papercrafts woohooo. This week the lovely Michelle over at Just Magnolia has chosen Paper Piecing and the lovely Marion over at Totally Papercrafts has chosen to use dies/punches. Fortunately for me again I was able to combine the two challenges and just make one card. I've used two Magnolia images to create a little scene and the dps are all from Magnolia too as are the swirls which are again my favourite doohickey dies. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've used an MS punch for the leaves.

My little scene has been coloured in with Copics and smothered with stardust stickles again hehe! I will be entering my card into the following challenges :
Addicted to Stamps - Summer time
Aud Sentiments - Summer time

Crafts & Me - Bling it on

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything goes

Stamp Something - Something punched

Totally Gorjuss - Flower Power
Thanks for stopping by today, here's wishing you a fabby weekend. Please do take a moment to hop on over to the Just Magnolia and Totally Papercrafts blogs and see just how talented the girls on these two teams are and then join in the fun with us. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

P.S. It has just been brought to my attention that a fellow blogger is under the impression that I have copied their card and not given them the credit for it. I would just like to state that it is by pure FLUKE that I used the same two stamped images on my card, nothing else is the same. I feel that the mushroom stamp was made to be used as a background stamp and I coincidentally used the butterfly Tilda. How many of you would have done the same???? Apologies if I've offended you by not giving you credit but I honestly did not COPY your card.


  1. Gorgeous Carol! I love the paper piecing! Such a sweet card! xxoo

  13. Carol, your card is beautiful. I really feel sorry for you that you are being accused of this. I completely agree with your comment here on your blog. When the new stamps come out and I see them, I imagine certain ones together, and then see the Magnolia DT has used them the same way in the Magazine, or I see those same ideas on other blogs. I hope you have a nice weekend. Hugs, Rea
