Midweek Magnolias - Christmas

Happy Hump Day!

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


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.

Thanks for stopping by... I'll see you again next week with a new Magnolia card.
