Magnolias for Japan

Hi there! Just popping in to share a sneak peek of a new digital image set by Tiffany Doodles which will go on sale tomorrow, March 23rd, in the Tiffany Doodles store.


Tiffany came up with a new series of images called "Granny's Yard" because they were inspired by photographs that she took at her grandmother's. Her very first set are some gorgeous Japanese magnolias and she's offering two versions--one in black & white and a set that's fully colored.


Tiffany wants all proceeds from the sale of the pre colored set donated to Japan's Red Cross to aid the earthquake/tsunami victims. Here's my card using the colored set.


I chose the flowers that I wanted and lined them up and flipped them so they faced different directions. After printing them out, I stamped the sentiment and mounted it on a kraft card base. The card background was stamped with Hero Arts' Envelope Pattern. Some purple seam binding and a pearl finishes off the card. Easy peasy at its best!

This is the first time I've used pre colored images and it made for a quick and simple card. Now that I have the images saved, I can print them out whenever I need a card and simply change the sentiment for a thank you, sympathy, or friendship theme.

If you've never tried using a pre colored digital stamp before, here's your chance to do so. And you'll be helping a great cause at the same time.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your earlier good wishes for our daughter's wedding. It's counting down to 10 days--yikes!--and since it's an outdoor wedding, we're just hoping for sunny skies on that day.


I'll be back on the 28th for an exciting blog hop, and don't forget you have until March 30th to enter my giveaway here. Bye for now!
