The Aussie gang


For this card I used the fab Aussie themed Magnolia's- how cute are they! I decided to use a couple of recycled items in it too.

I used some bottle tops instead of brads and buttons and some bottle labels instead of dollies. The colour matched perfectly with the Great Southern DP from Kaisercraft, so this made it really pop with those outback colours. Plus this is my fave beer out here!

I am entering this card in the following challenges :

Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog - Anything goes!
Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog - Anything goes!

My DP papers were the fab Kaisercraft 'Great Southern Land' and I especially like this as the red and orange is so perfect for where I live in the Pilbara...defo red dirt country here!

I popped the beer labels behind the image, just like you would do with a doily. The caps are mounted on double sided mounting tape so they stand out. For embellishments I used green ghost leaves from WOC, some brown/cream blooms and sparkly lizard as a) we have LOADS of them and I love them and b) ties in with Edwin and his Lizard. I used some calico wooden stars and formed the Southern Cross and this is just peeking out of the left hand corner.

So for my Mid week reminder I have used the awesome Kaisercraft Shadow box picture frame. I had been dying to do one of these and thought this was the perfect way to combine my BTP and Magnolia love's into one project. For this I used Tilda with hearts from the 'Love Collection'. The papers I used at from the Kaisercraft 'Enchaned garden' collection. I just LOVE this collection. Such pretty papers. I also used the collectable from the same collection, and some Sparklets to make is sparkle. The pink flower stem is from Prima. The rings are from my own stash. and LOTS of stickles in fairy dust.

Anything but a card

Well peoples this is an AWESOME challenge! We want to see where our girl Tilda is going to go but remember it has to be ANYTHING BUT A CARD!! So come on over and see what the rest of DT have been up to at Totally Tilda Challenge Blog

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sir Stampalot

The prize will be:
Two Magnolia Stamps

For me I used the very cute Kaisercraft Cottage which came out this year. I thought I would make into the Magnolia ink kids Christmas house. Bless Edwin he is on his own among this lot!

So the DP I used on the inside if from the Basecoat II collection from Kaisercraft. It is a lace print which looks very homey. The paper that was used on the outside is also from Basecoat II and I wanted to make it look like a log cabin. For the roof I used a mixture of Basecoat and regular cardstock from the Kaisercraft range. The decorations are from Dress it up buttons, a lovely mixture of Christmas things. I esp love the lights. I wrapped green and white candy cane striped twine around the windows and used Glittering Tilda as she looks like she is putting up the decorations.

On the fence I papered it and added some Distress paint and left it to crackle to give the old wood look. I used Vintage Photo for this.
