Twist and Pop for Christmas


I am here today with a card that I had been wanting to try for a while and finally got round to doing it! Its a twist and pop card and the tutorial is from the Kaisercraft blog and its so simple yet effective...ive added the link below.

Kaisercraft Blog Twist and Pop card

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

Magnolia-licious Challenge blog- Mini challenge
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes with a Magnolia image
Noor! Design UK challenge blog- CAS or fully loaded

Now Although there is a regular size Tilda on the front of the as I tried a mini and she looked a bit lost but on the inside there are four mini Magnolia stamps which I just think are the cutest...esp that front door scene.

I colored all the images with Distress inks. The papers are Maja Design from last years Christmas release. The band around the middle of the card is held in place by some velcro. I used a Spellbinders stocking die for the socks on the front of the ban. The mini string of socks on the inside is from Noor!Design UK. The gold sparkly paper is from my local craft shop.

On the front of the card I added some structure paste and a snowflake stencil  (new addiction!), which can also be found at Noor! design and I sprinkled this when wet with some holographic embossing powder. Behind the main image you can see a LDRS die which is one of my fave dies to use.

To hold the stockings on the front in place I added some rhinestone brads and I like these as they allow movement which looks like the stockings are swining.

On all the images I added some glitter glue as sparkle is always needed and esp at Christmas!

To finish off I added a stocking charm.

Hope you have a great week.

Tilda and Peanut

Happy Sunday!

Well this is a bit strange..Ive made an autumn themed card in Spring...yes peoples its Spring in Australia and the weather is starting to heat up nicely!!!

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

All About Magnolia Challenge - All about Autumn
Magnolia-licious challenge blog - Fall challenge
Paradise of Stamps Challenge- Halloween or Fall

So for this card I used the cute stamps of 'Tilda an Peanut' an oldie but a goodie. I love this stamp as some of you will know that we have a hermit crab called Peanut and he is the the littlest dude but such a character!

I colored Tilda with Distress Inks. The papers are from Maja Design 'Walk in the Forest'. All the dies are from Magnolia, the die club. I love the leaves and made these 3d with mounting tape. I edged the image, papers and the die cuts with Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo'.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I never thought that coral flowers and green would go well together but they kinda pop off each other!

The sentiment inside the card is from Lili of the Valley.

Book of spells..

Happy first of the month people!

Wow can you please it is October! where this year has gone I have no idea, in a blur of packing boxes and paper I think!

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

lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Magnolia-Licious Challenge blog- Halloween challenge
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes with a Magnolia image
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Anything goes
Paradise of Magnolia- Sprakle and Shine

For this card I used the fabulous Wizard Tilda, she is just the best and I love her to bits. Defo another fave of mine there! I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. The papers are an older Graphic 45 collection and still I love them...none really does steampunk and Halloween like Graphic 45.

The dies...oh the I do love dies! Right, well the shape of the card is my usual, Go Kreate shape. The spiders web and the chicken wire are both from the Magnolia Die club. The Book at the bottom is also from a Magnolia die club and which witch is without her book of can even see pages from Tilda's spell book around her so you can see what potion she is making up!

The bats are from La La Land Crafts and I sprayed these little guys with glimmer mist.

The sentiment and the books flying round Tilda (dont think her spell is going quite to plan!) are all from the awesome Kraftin'Kimmie Stamps, as is the little guy stamped inside.

The hat and the witches washing line are dies from Impression Obsession. I love this washing line! These are also coated in glimmer mist.

I edged the die cuts with Distress Inks 'Vintage Photo'.

Behind the spiders web I popped some cheese cloth to add to the web effect.

The book I just pasted on one of the tags from the paper pad to make Tilda a spell book. On that I popped some specs.

On the books, the stars and her trail left by the stars from Tilda's spell I used gold and fairy dust glitter glue.

Hope you have a great weekend.
