Just Magnolia challenge - punch it out!

Wow!! You all loved the fold it challenge as much as we did! They were all stunning! This week at Just Magnolia the challenge is "punch it out" - ie: use your punches! I decided to revisit my Sarah Kay card from January and adapt it. This time I've filled my cutout completely to form an ornate screen so that you can only see glimpses of what is going on inside the card! The papers are from Magnolia and have been distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink and stickles.
I've used several different punched shapes, glued together and stickled. I've also added some gems to the flower centres.
I'm still working my way through the new Tildas I got at the NEC, isn't this one cute! I love her hairstyle and floaty dress! I've coloured her with distress inks and added stickles to her shoes, wand and dress.
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've sprayed them with glimmer mist. The leaves were punched with a McGill fern punch and the edges sponged with walnut stain distress ink. The pins are from the Hobby House.

The sentiment I designed myself on the computer and I've cut it out with a nestie and inked and stickled the edges.

The tulle is from the Hobby House and I have added some drops of stickles for a bit of sparkle.

Inside the card Tilda IS going to the ball after all in her gorgeous princess clothes!

Here is a close up of Princess Tilda. Again, I've coloured her with distress inks and added lots of sparkle with stickles. I've cut her out with a nestie and mounted the image onto the next nestie up to frame it.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week! You can see the rest of the DT's stunning cards and join in here. Thanks for looking! xx

Wow thanks so much that is so cool! Can't wait to have a try! Do you just overlap the cut outs and glue together then run through a nestability to get the shap that you require?
It looks stunning - thanks so much.

Hi Jane,
What an inspirational card. It obviously took a lot of time and effort to create this mini masterpiece. Hardwork but gorgeous.

This has got to be the most amazing card I've ever seen! I never would have thought to do the design you did on the outside that gives just a glimpse of what is on the inside. BTW, Cinderella has always been my favorite fairy tale.

I love the new magnolia stamps and can't wait to order some. Every time I think that I have enough ... they come out with more cute stamps!

My daughter is physically and mentally disabled and at the age of 21 still loves her princesses! I will definitely have to buy some of these to stamp for her. She loves coloring them and she even adds her own nose and mouths sometimes. hehe
