Midweek Magnolias - Christmas


Happy Hump Day!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Christmas”

Join us for the challenge following our theme and rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


To inspire you for this Christmas challenge I decided to make a couple of gift tags. They feature “Tilda with Sock Puffs” masked with “Christmas Lace Bench” and “Tilda with Holiday Sweater” from the “Aspen Holidays” collection all water colored with Distress Inks.

My designer papers are from BoBunny Dear Santa collection along with Recollections Kraft cardstock and Bazzill for my die cuts. The base of my tags were cut from Tailored Expressions Label dies with the edges inked in Ground Espresso.


For “Tilda with Sock Puffs” I created a wintery background using BoBunny paper and Lawn Fawn stitched hill die cuts. I added some liquid appliqué to Tilda’s sock puffs and heated them with my heat emboss tool for puffy dimension. Then I added Stardust Stickles to the puffs and the lace on the bench for a bit of glittery bling.


The snowflakes are from Top Dog and Tailored Expressions dies with a coat of Glamour Dust. The Season’s Greeting stamp sentiment is from Papertrey Ink on a PTI banner die.

I finished off the tag with some white satin ribbon and red baker’s twine from my stash.


I fussy cut "Tilda with Holiday Sweater" and adhered her with fun foam for dimension. I used my Wink of Stella clear brush for the reindeer nose.

The Christmas tree and garland die cuts are from the new DooHickey Club Kit Volume 14. I added BoBunny rhinestones to the tree and a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the berries on the garland.


I created my poinsettias with a Marianne Designs die and the Merry Christmas sentiment is from Papertrey Ink on the same banner die.

This tag has green satin ribbon and red baker’s twine from my stash.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join in the challenge for a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.

Midweek Magnolias - Anything Goes


Happy Hump Day!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Anything goes with a Magnolia Image”

Join us for the challenge following our theme and rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


My card features “Poinsettia Tilda” from the “Aspen Holidays” collection. I colored Tilda with Distress Inks on an elegant Spellbinders frame. My designer papers are from Graphic 45 St. Nicholas collection along with Bazzill cardstock.


I kept my card fairly simple to let this cute Tilda shine with a festive flower arrangement and some stamps from the G45 collection paired with Magnolia tags. I finished the card with some paper straws and a sweet Santa charm.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.

Marvelous Magnolias - Anything Goes


Hello, Magnolia Friends!

I’m back to share a new DT card with the Romance team for the Marvelous Magnolias November challenge. This month our theme is…

“Anything Goes”


My card features “Lace Hood Tilda” from “A Lovely Christmas” collection. My papers are from Kaisercraft “Silver Bells” collection paired with Bazzill cardstock. The background pattern paper has a musical score so I decided to add a Memory Box Music die cut from silver cardstock.


I used lots of Magnolia DooHickey dies for this card. My slim fir trees were run through my Xyron then covered with Glamour Dust, Sparkle & Sprinkle, and Martha Stewart Glitters.

I created my flowers using the Magnolia flower dies from the DooHickey Club Kit Volume 7. I crumbled them up then unfolded, inked the edges, and added a bit of Martha Stewart lace around the base of the flowers. I also used my Marianne Designs English Rose die for a couple of rolled roses.

I fussy cut two ornaments from the paper collection, paired them with a large layered DooHickey ornament, and adhered them with foam tape. I finished my card with a sentiment tag, also from the paper collection, matted on silver cardstock.


Here’s a close up of Tilda colored with Copics.

My card features “Ice Tilda” from the “Aspen Holidays” collection. I colored Tilda with Distress Inks, fussy cut around the image and adhered it with fun foam. My designer papers are from Bo Bunny Woodland Winter collection along with Bazzill cardstock.


I die cut the winter background scene from the DooHickey Club kit Volume 7 out of a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangular frame. I also die cut a Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop from blue cardstock for my evening sky. The icicles are also from the DooHickey Club kit Volume 7 with a coat of Glamour Dust and diamond wrap trim. My snowflakes are from Carta Bella also coated with Glamour Dust and the tags are from the new Magnolia Vintage Box Volume 4 with bakers twine. And finally, I added a cute Ice Skate die cut by Marianne Designs with Weathered Wood distress ink on the embossed details.

Happy Hump Day!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Anything Goes with a Magnolia image”

Join us for the challenge following our theme and rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


My card features “Christmas Caramel Tilda” from “A Lovely Christmas” collection. My designer papers are from Doodlebug Design’s Sugarplums collection paired with Bazzill cardstock. I stitched all of my DP panels and added Magnolia Antique Lace trim on one panel and Teeny Tiny Pompom trim along with diamond wrap on another panel.


I created my little gumdrop banner by drawing a template on white cardstock and added Glossy Accents sprinkled with Doodlebug sugar glitter. Once they were dry I cut them out and glued them to some silver baker’s twine for my banner.

I had some cute Christmas cookie cutter embellishments in my stash that I added and I cut some candy canes from my La-La-Land die. I added a few flowers and vintage seam binding then finished off the card with a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.


Here’s a close up of Tilda colored with Distress Inks. I also coated her frame with Diamond Dust glass glitter for sparkle.
