Hello, Friends. I’m back with some inspiration to share with you for our new challenge at Magnolia-licious. This fortnight our theme is…
My card features “North Pole Tilda” and “Show the Way Sign” from the New Winter Wonderland collection. I created a little winter scene with my stamps and colored them with Copics. I also added a lot of sparkle with Glamour Dust for the snowflakes and silver Stickles for Tilda's leggings.
I machine stitched my Magnolia designer paper and brushed the edges with Dazzlerz then distressed it with Walnut Stain. I love the look of layered lace using fabric and paper. So I added a strip of sparkly mesh, tulle lace and Magnolia Christmas Lace to create lots of texture and dimension. Several of my dies were altered with glitter using my Xyron sticker maker. For me this is the easiest way to apply glitter to a large surface. I love this tool.
Here’s a photo from a different angle so that you can see all the sparkly effects.
I made all my flowers with dies this time using Magnolia’s Poinsettia and Marianne Design’s Branch & Flower die. I finished the card with a pretty chipboard corner embossed with silver embossing tinsel and my sentiment was also heat embossed on my heart tag.
Here’s a close-up of Tilda.
Don’t forget to check out the deal of the day in the Magnolia-licious store. There’s always a great buy on stamps, markers and dies. In addition to the Magnolia collections old and new, Diana is adding new stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studio, Penny Black and Candibeans stamps. They are all so adorable. Oh, and you gotta check out the cute new La-La Land Crafts 3D kits in the store. I made a Christmas Shadow Box a couple weeks ago. You can check it out here.
Don’t forget to leave a comment on any of the DT blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a weekly prize. The winner is announced every week during the “W”ednesday post.
