Secret Santa card for a fan!!

Hi everyone, 
I thought now that my secret Santa recipient had received my card 
I better pop in and show you what I made for her!! 
Zoe from the Magnolia design team thought it would be a great idea to run a little competition for Magnolia fans to be in the draw to receive a card from one of us DT gals and I was lucky to send one to mel...

Here is the card..."She loved it"  (thankgoodness lol)

I used my silhouette machine to cut my card base and also a matching stand to sit the card in for display!!
the paper is gorgeous Christmas paper from Magnolia.

both of these stamps are from Winter wonderland collection - 
Show the way Tilda and Show the way baby Rudolph.
Coloured with distress ink markers.

Thanks for visiting my blog
Merry Christmas !!

Christmas time with Edwin...

Hey everyone, 
sorry its been awhile since my last post, I've been so busy making my creations for the next Magnolia Ink, and other things that I can't show you just yet!!

But guess what I've got something new to share with you now... a drawer!!

This is the first time I have made one of these and I had so much fun putting it together.
I used one of the gorgeous new stamps from Winter wonderland collection... Christmas Eve Edwin, he is so adorable with his little xmas tress!!

Edwin is coloured using Distress ink markers and refills...
I added some Frantage in shabby white around the image!! 

There's also lots of shaved ice sprinkled around for sparkle... gotta have some sparkle!!

I used heaps of 3D Kindy glitz on this to create a snowy effect...
(Thankyou jenny for the draw knob and 3D kindy glits)

All the paper is new release paper from Winter wonderland collection and it is all stunning, they have gorgeous Christmas images on every piece, I love the snowman one its so cute!!

The poinsettia die I have used here is the build a poinsettia from Cottage cutz.
 I added in some buttons for the center of the flowers.

The tree's in the background are a stamp and die cut from sizzix. Great for xmas cards!!

I hope you like it... I will be back very soon with a card.

Card from Around the world...

Hi everyone, 
Just thought I'd pop in and show you some photos of one of my cards that was in the latest Magnolia ink Magazine around the world!!

Our theme was to make things to represent what country we lived in so of course I grabbed out my Aussie Magnolia stamps :-)

For this one I used Tilda with uggs...

Amongst my paper stash I found some paper that had a map of Australia on it....perfect!!!
Think it may have been a kaiser brand piece of paper...

The doo hickey used is Lace coaster..

I coloured my Tilda with Prisma colour pencils... Green and gold!!

I hope you like it, and if you haven't already don't forget to grab yourself a copy of Magnolia ink and check out the rest of the DT's work...!!

I played along with the sketch at Magnolia down under challenges for the layout..

There's some pretty diamond dust sprinkled around the image for a bit of sparkle...
Lace and ribbon all from my store Ashcraft & Gifts...

I used the cute new doo-hickey die view master...
