You can see from the title of this post that it's time for a brand new challenge at Midweek Magnolias..
And the theme is Anything But A Card..
Remember the Christmas gift box I made not so long ago??
I enjoyed so much making it that I've decided to make another one..
How could I not use one of the stamps from the latest Magnolia Winter Wonderland Collection 2013..
This is Puppy Love Tilda..
And I LOOOOOVE her!!!
The box is made out of kraft paper and Papermania Textured paper and then decorated with some DP's..
Maja Design - It's Christmas Time - Sparkle
Inkido - Forever Santa - Christmas Music
All the paper edges are distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and then inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink..
All the edges are machine sewn too..
The pearls and Bead Berry Spray Clusters are from Wild Orchid Crafts..
I've used several Magnolia Doohickey dies for it:
- View Master
- Vintage Box Lacing Coffee
- Slender Firs
The View Master and Firs are covered with some Shabby White Frantage..
The cheesecloth is from my stash..
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Kort & Godt..
I've used my Spellbinders Opulent Ovals to cut out this cutie..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks and reinkers..
Here are the colours I've used:
As you can see I've added some Frantage around the image too..
The dots on her cheeks are made with an Inkssentials White Opaque Pen..
I've also added some Stickles on some parts of her dress and some Glossy Accents on the seal..
For the border of the lid I've used a Martha Stewart punch called Eyelet Lace..
There's some Vintage Seam Binding all around and I finished the look with a bow and one of my gorgeous Mini Bark Hearts from the LLC store..
There's some Gesso and some Crackle Paint here and there and two mini bells hidden on the right side of the biggest flower..
This was my creation for this fortnight's challenge..
I can't wait to see what you come up with..
Don't forget that there's a fantastic mistery prize from Magnolia waiting for one lucky winner..
