I hope you had a wonderful week, and that you are ready for a smashing weekend. Mine was quite a busy week, and am looking forward for a quieter end of the week. Today it's my turn for an inspirational card at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, and I chose to feature not only an older Magnolia stamp, which is Tilda with Wedding Gifts, form 2010, but also some fabulous paper which Shawn has in Store, ready for grabs!
As you can see, most Magnolia stamps are very versatile and can be used for various occasions. In my case, Tilda is not bearing Wedding gifts, but Christmas ones :) Remeber that at Magnolia-licious you can find many, many of these stamps, and most of them with a smashing sale price that is unbelievable!
The papers are Lemon Craft's Christmas Carols papers, and you can find them HERE. There are many more awesome Christmas papers for you, like Maja Design's Home for the Holidays, and the I Wish Collection.
The postcard which you can see, is part of one one of Pion's Long Time Ago in Betlehem's papers. The panel behind the postcard, is created with another older Magnolia stamp, which is the Silent Night music notes. I stamped this on a piece of watercolour paper inked with Distress Colours.
I checked another Christmas card off the list, a happy girl I am! To be honest, I do not send these cards to everyone, as I prefer to use traditional Christmas cards, believing that the Birth of Jesus is the reason for the Season, therefore He needs to be the spotlight. But I either send these to other Crafters, or give them as gifts to be used for someone else.
This is a chipboard Christmas decoration, which I made more beautiful with Stardust Stickles and red bling. I also Distressed the edges with Walnut Stain for more effect.
I used a gold pen for one of the gifts and one of the ribbon, to add more shine. Unluckily this does not really sohw well on the photograph, but IRL it looks pretty :)
I hope you liked this card, and that you check out the STORE for more toys to play! Shawn keeps adding things for our crafty craziness, and we just love them!
Sending a warm smile and some positive vibes across to you who spent some time with me here. Let me know you think about it, and if you ever tried some of these products yourself! Happy Weekend!
