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 she has given us a beautiful photo for inspiration.
It screams pink and blue Christmas to me, how about 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 could have a chance to win a Mystery Surprise from Magnolia-licious.
Diana has so many awesome Maggie stamps, tons of dies, papers, and other goodies in her store. She also carries the Magnolia Ink Magazine and the new Christmas edition includes a new stamp, so don’t miss out on these, they won’t last. There are some new Doohickey dies from “A Christmas Story” collection so hop over and get yours before they are all gone. If you haven’t seen the *NEW* “Nativity” Collection you can see all of the lovely stamps in the store HERE. The Magnolia-licious Design Team has colored images from these two collections and they are featured in the store. Fabulous job, Ladies!
My card for this challenge features the adorable “Jingle Jangle Tilda” from “A Christmas Story” Collection. I created an Advent Calendar card design that was featured by Norma. I just adore her artwork and creativity which is inspiring to me, so I want to grow up to be like her . Norma was kind enough to share the card template she used for these Advent Calendars on her blog HERE. My cardstock base and mats are from Bazzill and I used some cute pink and blue digi papers called Santa’s Sleigh by Carina Gardner that I got from Jessica Sprague’s website a couple years ago. I don’t often use digital papers for my cards but these were perfect for the color theme and I had already colored my image before choosing my papers. When I printed them off they matched my colored Tilda perfectly, I was so delighted.
Tilda’s frame is a free Cameo cutting file. I used a little flock from Doodlebug Designs for her hat trim and the bells and buttons got a coat of Glossy Accents. I distressed the edges of my DPs with Brushed Corduroy distress ink as well as my date panels. I used the Slender Firs die cuts from Magnolia cut in blue and pink CS and covered with Martha Stewart glitter. The glitter really pops if you use similar colored CS as your base instead of white. I added some MME turquoise rhinestones to the corners of my motif panel. My flowers are from WOC and I added several spruce leaves from a Marianne Designs die cut. The Baker's Twine is from Doodlebug Designs with bells at the ends of the bow. I finished it off with a Whimsy Stamps sentiment and bound the date numbers with my Bind-It-All.
Here’s a close up of Tilda.
