New Challenge Marvelous Magnolia - Anything Christmas BUT a Card.

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a fabulous weekend and are nearly ready for the big day!  I spent mine in my craft room, just trying to catch up. I have done well, but I've still got  4  to make (I think).

Today we have the last challenge of the year for Marvelous Magnolia and our theme is 'Anything Christmas BUT a card'. Both teams are joining in with the challenge and it will run through until the 7th January.

I opted to make a gift bag, would you believe it, this is first time I have made one and I really enjoyed it. 

This Maggie is called Tilda with Christmas Lamp from the latest Christmas collection and I have coloured her with DI reinkers. 

The dies are my favourite Joy Dies from Noor Design U.K., Star Edge, 8 point circle, Circle Die No. 2, Banner Die and matching English Text stamp set. Unfortunately I have hidden most of the papers, but they are beautiful and are from the First Edition Gilded Winter paper pad. The ribbon, cheese cloth and pearl string are from the Ribbon Girl.  The flowers and fir cones are from my stash although the you can buy fir cones from the Ribbon Girl. Links to the material I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.


DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain,Antique Linen
Coat and Hat: Grand Espresso
Trousers: Hickory Smoke , Grand Espresso
Lamp: Gathered Twigs, Wild Honey, Barn Door, Squeezed Lemonade.

This is probably going to be my last post before Christmas as I need to get back to making the wedding invites. I would like to say a huge thank you to all my followers and to everyone for the lovely comments you have left me throughout the year, they really are appreciated.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.

Paradise of Stamps - Snow - A Little Prayer

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, although he pressure is mounting with the lead up to Christmas now. 

Today I am showcasing my card for the reminder team at the Paradise of Stamps. Our challenge theme is Snow.

I have coloured up another LOTV stamp called A Little Prayer and masked her with a Magnolia Sea Background stamp.   The hills are covered with Glamour Dust for the lying snow. I have made the scene into a small lake rather than the sea and some Glossy Accents have been added  to represent  ice.

The star banner and tag are by Joy from Noor Designs U.K. Around the image I have placed some Ivory Bead String and tucked behind it is some cheesecloth.  The sentiment is from an LOTV Grunge Christmas Postcards stamp set. All the beautiful embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl. Links to the materials I ave used are at the bottom of this post, click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Cloak: Grand Espresso
Dress: Hickory Smoke
Stars: Wild Honey
Trees: Gathered Twigs

The winner of this challenge will win a GDT spot with us.

Well that's it from me today, thank you for popping in.

Have a lovely week.

Take care.
