Midweek Magnolias DT - #153 Christmas

 Good morning!  It is time for another Midweek Magnolias and our theme is 'Christmas'.  
 I have painted the super cute Holly Wreath Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added stickles to the bows on the wreath and in  her hair and to the heels of her socks.  I also painted the door background with Distress Inks.
I have used gold Perfect Pearls and a Prima brick mask to create the wall of the house and a Doohickey die for the fancy fascia on the roof.  I've added gems to represent fairy lights.
 I created little Christmas trees either side of the front door use a Doohickey die.  I have added large gems behind the heart cut outs to look like fairy lights.
The pots are curved to add dimension.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Midweek Magnolias.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  I do hope you can join us!

Magnolia-licious DT - Anything Goes

 Good morning!  It is time for another challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge and for this fortnight our theme is 'Anything Goes'.  I've used one of the gorgeous new Stamp & Cutz sets on this card.
 I've painted Danish Royal Opera Tilda with Distress Inks using the no line technique.  I've also added some pearls to her hair using a white gel pen. 
I wanted the whole card to look like Tilda was performing on stage.  To create the curved look of the stage I used a border die from the Fairytale (No. 9) Doohickey kit and curved it before attaching to the card.
 I used a Doohickey tag die for the sentiments and added lots of flowers from my stash and The Ribbon Girl around them.
 The gorgeous little bird was cut with the Doohickey die that comes with the stamp.  You get this gorgeous little bird and the violin die!
 I added stage curtains made from ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.
 Above Tilda I fussy cut some of the paper to create stage scenery and added some gorgeous tulle trim and a chipboard piece, both from The Ribbon Girl. 
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious challenge.  Check out the rest of the Stamp & Cutz sets in the Magnolia-licious store and the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous cards.
