I hope that you are well and not too stressed. Can you believe that we only have four more sleeps until the big day!

Here is a card that I made using Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams images.

I have masked Winter Tilda and stamped Welcome to a Sweet Christmas image behind her. I used Archival Coffee to stamp my images onto 300gsm watercolour paper.
The stickles I have added are Star Dust.
The die cuts are Magnolia Doohickeys.

Everything has been distressed with Walnut Stain.

Here for the inside left of my card. I have pin pricked the edges. The Magnolia Santa's Sack has been stamped and then the wax seals have been glossed with Glossy Accents. 
The die cut is Magnolia Mistletoe.

I have stamped Christmas Love Holly in the corner and added Sakura glitter pen to the hearts.

Thank you so much for visiting with me and I wish you all a great rest of the week!

Make a Christmas Wish........


I hope all is good with you and that your Christmas preparations are going well.

Today I have a card I made using Magnolia's Halo Tilda.

I have coloured Tilda with distress inks. I have used Archival Coffee to stamp Tilda with for a change, onto 300 gsm hp water colour paper.

Everything is edged with walnut stain and the stickles I have used are Star Dust.

I die cut the star using Quickutz and then covered this with clear crackle glaze.

To give the bells some sparkle I covered them in versamark and then added ultra thick embossing powder and then added glitter before heating.

For the inside left I die cut a cuttlebug snowflake.

I added Magnolia's Mistletoe die cuts to the inside right.

Thank you so very much for visiting with me, and for all your comments I appreciate them so much. Wishing you all a brilliant rest of the week!
