All About Magnolia DT - All About Christmas

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share my card for our All About Christmas challenge that is running on the All About Magnolia Challenge blog this month.  I have used one of the gorgeous new stamps from the Christmas Party collection.
 As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also used a gold pen for the trims and epaulettes on her gorgeous outfit.  She reminds me of one of the toy soldiers from the Nutcracker ballet, which I love to watch at Christmas.
 I have also used a sentiment from the collection.  It is great value as it comes with some accessory stamps too.
 I treat myself to a die I have wanted for a long time this year - the gingerbread house.  It is so much fun to put together.  My little girl has made lots of them to hang on her Christmas tree and give out to her friends.  I have added a tiny bell and some twine from my stash to the top of the house.
 I made the candy canes using one of the accessory stamps.  I have covered them with Glossy Accents so that they look like real candy canes.
 The tag was cut with a Doohickey die and the flowers and berry are from my stash.  The gorgeous Maja Design papers and the lace are from Craft Heaven.
 The cute wooden buttons are also from Craft Heaven.  I think they look like tiny gingerbread cookies, so they are perfect to match the sentiment!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia this month.  Thanks for looking! x

Craft Heaven DT - Christmas Tree Tilda

 Good morning!  I'm excited to share my latest card for Craft Heaven this morning featuring my absolute favourite Tilda fron the Christmas Party collection, Tilda with Star.
 As always I've painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've also added some Stardust Stickles to the Christmas tree frills and her star.
 The sentiment is also from the new collection and comes in a set with another sentiment and some snowflakes.  I've stamped it with Pine Needles distress ink.
 The gorgeous papers are by Maja Design and these two with stars and Christmas trees on were perfect to match Tilda!  I've also added some lace, wooden buttons and ribbon from Craft Heaven to complete my card.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the team! x

Craft Heaven DT - Christmas Roses

Good morning!  Today I'd like to share my card for Craft Heaven using another of the gorgeous stamps from Stempelglede's Christmas Rose set.
 I have painted the Christmas Rose image with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've also added a shimmer to the holly leaves with a Wink of Stella pen.  The swirling snowflake pattern around the edges of the image is another stamp from the set.
 I have dyed some white seam binding from Craft Heaven with Pine Needles Distress Ink to match the Pion Design papers.

 The gorgeous lace is from Craft Heaven too and I've added some poinsettias I've made with some ecru Foamiran, cheesecloth and some red berries.
 The sentiment is from the Stempelglede stamp set too and I have used some glitter cardstock saved from last year's Christmas crackers to make the snowflake border, cut with a Tim Holtz die.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Good morning!  I have another Christmas Card to share with you today.  This time using one of the gorgeous new stamps from Stempelglede's Christmas Rose stamp set.  I have painted the sweet deer with Distress Inks and added white spots with a gel pen.
I have used Vintage White Seam Binding from the store along with some tiny white bells from my stash.
The gorgeous lace is also from the store and the sentiment comes in the Christmas Rose stamp set.  I have cut several tags using the Scalloped Tag Doohickey by Magnolia.
The trees were cut with a Tim Holtz die.

Online Magnolia Day - Reindeer Forest Card

Good morning!  Today I'd like to share a card I made yesterday with one of the kits from the Online Magnolia Day - Reindeer Forest.  I love this kit so much!  The sweet reindeer and Tilda are simply gorgeous!
I masked the reindeer and Tilda together and painted them with Distress Inks.  I've also used a white gel pen for the falling snow, reindeer spots and Tilda's cheeks and eyes.
 After I'd coloured the image I didn't want to add much to it because it looked so pretty on its own.  The little stars are some accessory stamps from the kit, stamped with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

 I have used an older Magnolia stamp for the sentiment.
 I will be back later to show you another card made with the Spellbound kit.
 I hope you like it and you are enjoying the Online Magnolia Day as much as I am!  Thanks for looking! x

Craft Heaven DT - Me and My Snowman

Good morning!  I am delighted to share my first inspiration post with you for Craft Heaven.  I have used 'Me and My Snowman' from the Aspen collection for my card.
I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've also used a white gel pen on her cheeks and eyes and added Stardust Stickles to some of the snow.

I have used a piece of rose trim as an individual flower and Doohickey snowflake dies for all of the snowflakes.
I have used an older text stamp from Magnolia for the 'Let it Snow' sentiment and I have also added straws tied with white button twine.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you and thanks for looking! x

All About Magnolia DT - All About the Season

 Good morning!  It is time for me to share my card for our challenge at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Our theme this month is 'All About the Season'.
I have painted Tilda with Distress Ink using just Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain so that it looked like a sepia photo.  I have added white dots to her cheeks and eyes and a swish of Stickles on her halo which really sparkles!
 I have used Frantage and fragments around the edge of the image and added a pearl string too.  The flowers and berries are from my stash.
 The sentiment is also a Magnolia stamp and I have created the poinsettias with some Foamiran.
 I have added lace and cheesecloth underneath the image mat and a rustic jingle bell with some more lace and twine.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Pop over to the blog for more gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the team.  Thanks for looking! x
