For my card Ive used Happy New Year Tilda painted with DI's

Most of the embellishments are from The Ribbon Girls. I have a box of total yumminess which is all from The Ribbon Girls and I found these beautiful Irridescent Hearts in there which just add the perfect bling for the New Year

Magnolia Advent Calender-Shutter 24

Merry Christmas Everyone

Yayyyy!!! :DDDD Its Christmas Eve :D
Today is my turn to open Shutter 24 of the Magnolia Advent Calender


For my Calender Ive masked a scene using 6 of the Magnolia Nativity Stamps.
Ive used Holy House, Holy TildaWith Lamb, Loving Holy Tilda, Tilda as Wiseman, Little Holy Baby and Holy Edwin all painted with Distress Inks.

I found the frame which was originally gold in a junk shop. I first coated in a crackle glaze then painted over in white.
The effect then is white with gold cracks showing through.

Ive decorated with Sizzix Die Pointesttia and DooHickey Fern.
Trees are D's Distinctive Dies

All you have to do to be in for a chance of winning the fabulous prize from Magnolia is leave me a comment below .
Yes......... thats it and I will choose a winner in the next couple of days.:D
I will be back soon with the winner

A Magnolia Christmas Bauble

Today to share is a Christmas Bauble I made using two Magnolia Images. Ive had this bauble a while now, but as usual I forgot all about it.
It is quite large with a radius of about 7 inches, so it was fun to make a scene inside, but quite difficult to photograph. So beware there's lots of pictures from different angles.

This is it hung on my tree.

This is the back.
Here I used DooHickey Tree and Sizzix Reindeer flight and Magnolia Merry Christmas Text.
The snow I found at a garden center. It came in a test tube and you just add water and it grows. Its great as it gives the true effect of snow without melting.
Magnolia Stamps are Swedish Church Background and Reindeer Tilda from this years Christmas Collection


I decorated the top with 2 giant rusty bells which I painted white


Please call back because on Christmas Eve 24th Dec I will be opening window 24 of the Magnolia Calender here. A prize will be up for grabs from Magnolia Sweden themselves and all you have to do to be in for a chance of winning is leave a comment on my post. (Ive still to finish it!!!)
Thanks so much for visiting me
