My Last Christmas Card for 2014

Hi There!!

Well yesterday was Christmas Day here in Australia. We had a great day, and Ruby was so good, and so happy with all her presents from Santa - so YAY!!

The card I have to show today is the last one I made for 2014. Its for my secret Santa present which I had to send, a week or so ago.... I'm rather pleased with how it turned out:-)

I've used Tilda with the Trumpet from the Magnolia, Christmas stamp club, a few Memory Box dies, a doohickey die and a Spellbinder! My lace is from Live and Love Crafts along with the cute little heart and star pin. My flowers are mostly from Wild Orchid. My Papers are Maja. I've used Frantage and Perfect Pearls Sprays and some Stickles. 

I hope you and your families all had a wonderful Christmas!!

Magnolia Down Under - Anything Goes

Hi There!!

Well how fast has the year gone? This is our last challenge of the year at Magnolia Down Under, and as usual it's a Anything Goes - so any last minute Christmas Cards or New Years or whatever your little creative fingers wants to make! 

For my card I have used another new Tilda from the last collection. I coloured her up, and yep don't look to close, my colouring is lacking - but I guess it looks alright, just! 

I have used Maja Design papers, white glittery card, lace and purple ribbon. My flowers have a touch of glitter snow. I have some tiny rusty bells, but they are kind of hidden a bit from the dark purple ribbon bow, looks better IRL! I have also sprinkled some pink frantage around my image, hope you all love my card as much as me:-)

See You all next year, and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and an awesome New Year. Magnolia Down Under Challenges will be back next year! We have some milestones to get too, a bunch of our DT will be hitting their 5 years on the Team, and the challenge itself will turn 6 WOW!!

Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Bingo!

Hey Everyone

Well its fast approaching the end of the year, and soon School will be out, and Christmas will be here!!  So I thought I better get a move on my Christmas Cards. I also thought, I should use my Magnolia Stamp Club Christmas Stamps, and Doo Hickey Club Dies before they gather too much more dust lol - I really haven't been that crafty this year... 

So this theme at Magnolia Down Under is Tic Tac Toe or Bingo! All you need to do, is pick three things in a line off the game board and make your card accordingly.  Or you can use everything on the game board... I did... so much fun trying to make everything fit!

And here is the game board!!

So as you can see, I have Snow Flakes, a Tag, I've used the Masking Technique. I have Glittery card, Rusty Jingle Bells and my colour is Red and White!  I have used two snow flake Doo Hickey Dies, I've got Lace and Ribbon on there. My Paint is on the rusty bells, flowers, and a touch of barely there on the tag! Yep I've got it all covered!

So my Stamps - well Tilda is from the new collection. My Silent Night background is a stamp from years and years ago. I embossed it with some Old Gold Frantage, but I think I should have used a finer embossing powder, as it looks a little chunky! My flowers and holly are from Petaloo and my Paper is Kaiser Craft - North Pole. My cute tag is a chippy from Scrapmats! 

Happy Crafting!!
