Magnolia-licious Holiday Hop - Canvas Christmas Stocking


Welcome, Friends. Today starts a new special Holiday Blog Hop. The Magnolia-licious DT and the Scor-Pal DT have joined up with lots of inspiration for you. So, if you arrived here from Abby’s blog then you are on the right track. If you need to start at the beginning all you need to do is click on this Magnolia-licious Challenge blog link. There you can read about the rules and the fun activities we have planned for you.


For my Holiday Hop project I made a canvas Christmas stocking. I stamped several Magnolia holly images randomly on the front side of the stocking and colored them with Copics. I also colored “The Day Before Christmas Stocking Tilda” from the 2013 Winter Wonderland collection that I got from Magnolia-licious; she is the perfect stamp for my project. I matted her on a new die cut frame from Marianne Design with a little Aged Ivory Frantage around her.

I added some pretty die cut Poinsettias, Merry Christmas text heat embossed on the new Magnolia banner stamp, scattered rhinestones, red feather trim, gold jingle bells and a pretty pearl button that I made myself.


Here’s a close up of Tilda in her traditional red and green Christmas dress. She is so adorable.

Ok, so on to the fun stuff…

There are 3 ways you can win a prize from the Magnolia-licious store.

1. Stop at all of the Design Team blogs in the Hop and collect all the Scavenger Hunt letters and unscramble them to spell out a special Holiday message. 

Then email your completed message to Suzanne Dean at sjdean0574@yahoo.comOne winner will be chosen randomly from those who submitted the correct message and will receive a Surprise Gift Package worth $50 in value.

2. Join us with a Holiday/Winter theme project of your own and upload to the inlinkz on the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog by December 31. 

There will be 2 winners chosen. The first place winner will receive a Surprise Gift Package worth $100 in value. The runner up will receive a Surprise Gift worth $50 in value.

Sounds like fun, right? OK, I don’t have any letters for you to collect on my blog, instead I have a CLUE to help you unscramble that message.

The CLUE is…

Capital Letters Start A Word.

Now it’s your turn. Keep moving on to each DT blog and collect those letters. They are identified in RED text and pay close attention to upper and lowercase letters. Your next stop is the very talented and lovely Julie Price of Stamps, Paper, Ribbons N Things.

I hope I've inspired you to join us for the Scavenger Hunt and challenge. Diana is always so generous with fun ways to win a prize from her store. Don’t forget to stop in the store; Magnolia-licious always has something new with the best prices and discounts.
