Midweek Magnolias #152 Anything Goes with a Magnolia Image

Hi Crafty Bloggers 
How are we all ??? I have had a lovely week off work last week and got some Christmas crafting time in so thoroughly enjoyed myself  ;0)

 Here is a picture of my cat Mr Kiefe 
inspecting my craft room
 and getting up to mischief .... he was even inside the filing cabinet at one point lol 

It's time for a brand new challenge at
Midweek Magnolias
The theme this fortnight is Anything Goes with a Magnolia Image 
with a  prize of a surprise package from 

There is oodles of inspiration...over on the blog so please pop on over and check  it out for all the details of how to enter !!

I have stamped Tilda with little rudolf so loving  this gorgeous collection . I have cut her out and used Papermill linen card as the base and then added a layer of white corrugated card and then ripped strips of this gorgeous Magnolia design paper a firm favourite with my fellow design team members !!

I have used the snowflurrie background die which I used glitter washi tape on card then cut out and used small diamantes to finish. I did the same with the Santa sleigh die which I covered with the text stamp from the new collection and  the leaf stamp was cut out and adhered on top with some leftover swirls that came from the dies . The mini cards were made from a vintage box die and added some bling from MaremiSmallArt on etsy

The Chippies were painted with distress stain just behind her and she was coloured with distress ink reinkers and pads and finished with a uniball gel pen and lastly some glitter with the zig pen.

Just adore these doodle flower dies from Sue Wilson
 also topped with some bling.

I loved how it turned out with a whimsical feel !!

I have decorated the inside with Magnolia Vintage Box envelope dies so I can sneak in some surprises !!!

I do hope you are inspired to join us <3

I am inspired to enter my card into the following super challenge ;-

The Sketchy Challenges #108 Team A Karina's Sketch

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

We are expecting snow this week it is really cold so think it is on it's way . Perfect weather for getting all cosy and crafting !!
 We have a new challenge at 
The Sketchy Challenges
We have a wonderful sketch this fortnight designed by Karina 

It is super gorgeous !!! Might have to use it over and over again lol !!

Our wonderful sponsor is a surprise package from 

All the details and all my teamies in Team A's gorgeous inspirations 
are on the blog so please check it out <3

I have got so much inspiration from the Vintage Box 3 from Magnolia that I received and from wonderful crafters such as Jiwon Jung and  when I was a teenager a long long time ago lol we used to use Airmail letters so that gave me the idea for the fold of the card .

I have used the design papers from Magnolia cut with the large stamp die and then covered it all up lol .  I have used the mini stamp and put a ceramic charm postcard with mini pearl , The ribbon bow is topped with a stamped pearl and finished with Magnolia tiny blue roses.

 I have use a metal gear with the propeller die topped with large pearl and framed the postcard stamp with metal corner and clock pebble .
 I have tucked a doily die just under the postcard.

 I have used the passport die and stamp and  added paper pages . Just love the suitcase dies but it took lots of patience to put together .

I have used the ribbon from the box along the bottom 

Here is the back you can see the papers and I used Sizzix Tim Holtz die for the connectors with some cord . I have used some washi tape along the top and have coloured the edges of the stamp die with a chalk edger and also blended some distress ink on the main card base of Papermill linen card.

 The inside is where I used more Magnolia papers and tags
 and washi tape with the stamps in the box .

Here is another panel using these gorgeous stamps 

It even stand ups which I was surprised to find out <3

I hope you are inspired to join us 

Products used are from Magnolia Sweden & The Trinket Parlour
