I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and are now enjoying a well earned rest. I had a fantastic time with my family and feel very blessed.
Magnolia are hosting a very special Christmas blog hop. Each day a member of the team is announced on the Magnolia Inspiration blog and today is my turn.
This is what I made for the blog hop. I have altered a brown paper bag to give a little Christmas gift. I have stamped my Magnolia image with Versafine black onyx, onto Waterford water colour 300gsm hp paper. I have coloured my Magnolia images with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with Pumice Stone and I have heat embossed Magnolia snow flakes with white embossing power around the edge.
I have distressed my papers with Tim's distressing tool and then distressed these with Walnut Stain. The stickle glue is Stardust. I have clear embossed the sentiments, snowballs, holly and vines with clear embossing powder.
Here is the back of my bag. I have cut out the Magnolia snowflake and layered this on top of some mulberry paper. I have die cut the Magnolia Doohickey tag die. The stars are Quickutz dies. I have also used some Ivory Lace glimmer mist on my Snowflake and papers. Again I have distressed everything with the distressing tool and Walnut Stain. The handles I have die cut using nesties.
Thank you so very much for your visit! If you would like to be in the Magnolia draw and have a chance to win a special prize from Magnolia. Please leave a comment and I will use Random Org. to pick one winner. I will make the draw after 24 hours and then will email your address to Magnolia who will send out your prize.
