Now you see me now you dont! !

Well happy Friday!

Can you believe that next week is the first of December!!! WOW this year has just gone in a blink of an eye!!! So of course the tree shall be going up and this will be our first Christmas in our new house!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge- Different folds/shape cards
Simply Magnolia- Vintage
Magnolia-licious- Anything goes
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes

For this card I wanted to try something different. I had seen a fabulous card on Pinterest and love the idea of the hidden/disappearing image. So the tutorial I used for the card is from the fabulous Norma at Splitcoast Stampers Peek-a-boo card Tutorial.

I used the images of Tilda and her cute Polar bear friend. This Tilda is called 'Cosy Tilda' and is from a Christmas release a year or so back. I coloured both Tilda and her polar bear friend with Distress inks.

The papers are from Pion Design last years Christmas release. I got to admit I do love this paper esp because of the little gnome fellow in it! He is just adorable!

Now the dies I used are Spellbinders for the main view finder part of the card. Around the edge of these I used a Memory Box stitched die.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used a diamond pin from here and the ghost leaves too. The bling in the bottom corner is from Noor! design UK as is the structure paint and the stencil used to create the embossed snowflakes.

The die cuts that edge the layer on the front of the card and the flowers are both from Magnolia.

Have a great weekend!

ohhh twisting oh baby yeah!!!


its been a bit of a while since i have blogged but heck we have been busy painting and gardening and its time to get back into the blog swing of things.

I have used the same tutorial for this card as I did for the last twist and pop card...from the Kaisercraft blog which can be found in a previous post here or if you search on the KC blog.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Midweek Magnolias- Winter
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Die cuts and/or punches
Noor! Design UK challenge blog- Winter
Marvelous Magnolia challeng blog- Anything goes
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Snow/glitter

Fot this card I used my fave Tilda from last years collection....Tilda with snowman. I love her little poncho! She s just adorable. For the images inside I used two of the cutest animal stamps Magnolia have done along with the Christmas lantern and of course some presents! I coloured all the image with Distress Inks.

The papers are from the gorgeous Pion Design...I adore this little gnome they have on this collection! I just love a gnome!!!

Now, for the sparkle....I used the structure paste from Dutch Doobadoo which you can get from Noor! Design UK and to make is glimmer like snow I added some holographic embossing powder. I LOVE structure past its the best thing EVER!!!!!! To add more sparkle I popped some glitter glue on the band that wraps around the card. Also I used the structure paste on Tilda's hat and added the embossing powder to that also.

The die used on the front of the card is from LDRS and this plus the icicle die used can all be found at Noor Design at the link above.

The sentiment inside is from the Pion papers and perfect as this card is going to a good friend back in England. I popped some frosty blue pearls on the inside and also on Tilda's buttons and also for earrings.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

To finish off I added a little penguin charm.

Hope you have a great day.
