Magnolia-licious - November Color Inspiration


Hello, Friends. The Magnolia-licious DT are back with another challenge for you and we hope you will join us. It’s Eulanda’s turn to choose the challenges for November and we want to see RED, WHITE, and GOLD or SILVER with Stickles or Glitter on your project. Here is a lovely photo to inspire you.

 
The design team has some spectacular creations for you HERE so hop over and check them out.


If you follow along with us for the challenge you have a chance to win a Mystery Surprise from the Magnolia-licious store. Diana has a vast selection of Maggie stamps, tons of dies, papers, and other goodies in the store at some of the best prices. She has just reduced the Mini Stamp Storage Binder by 58% and now the price is just $10.00 for each system. By the way, have you seen the *NEW* “Nativity” Collection of stamps in the store yet? You have to check them out; they are adorable! The DT has colored some images and they are featured in the store. Fabulous job, Ladies!

 
My card for this challenge features the sweet “Pixie Tilda masked with Snowy Roof” from “A Christmas Story” Collection. I created a scalloped circle easel card with Bazzill cardstock and a cute festive paper from BoBunny’s Mistletoe collection. I colored my images with Copics to fit the red, white and gold color theme. I also added some gold Stickles to Tilda’s stocking cap and stardust Stickles to the snow of my roof.

 
My snowflake doily die cut is from Sizzix and I cut it in three sections to run it through my Xyron sticker maker and covered it with gold glitter. I repeated the same with my new Magnolia “Slender Firs” die cuts in gold, red and white glitter. The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamped on the new Magnolia “Christmas Tags” die cut and edged with gold Stickles. I finished the front of my card with a bouquet of rose buds from Wild Orchid Crafts and a ribbon bow from American Crafts.

 
The inside of my easel card has repeating elements from the front and a sentiment from Cuddly Buddly edged with gold Stickles.
