Northwoods Post and Pumpkins

Hope everyone here in the US has had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration and enjoying some time off and maybe even getting some shopping done. I'm glad we have this Holiday to remind us to think of all the things we are so grateful for. And I hope everyone in the rest of the world is having fun preparing for the next holiday season!

Been working on some fun projects and will show later, but in the meantime, here is a card I colored with distress inks. It is an old Northwoods image. It's too bad it doesn't show, but I did put Crystal Lacquer on the pumpkins and light, but the camera didn't catch that.

Thanks for checking in and be sure and check back, the Magnolia-licious design team has a great project challenge coming up on December 1st. If you like to make presents for people this is a wonderful idea for those hard to buy for people.

Tilda With Hanging Star

Hope you are joining us for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog Hop. Our theme is Home Sweet Home and we were to make a home decor project. If you came from the awesome Janiel's blog, you are hopping along in order. If you stopped by on your own, you might want to go here to start from the beginning.

Found this cute little Christmas container that I thought the lovely Tilda With Hanging Star would look nice on. Also wanted to use the new Holly Swirl stamp too, so stamped and cut a couple of those out for the trim. These are two of the new Magnolia stamps from the 2010 Merry Christmas Collection. You can see the collection here at Diana's Magnolia-licious. Kept the flowers minimal so that this new Tilda would be the focal point.

#3083 Tilda With Hanging Star
#1405 Holly Swirl
Distress Inks: Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, Wild Honey, Fired Brick

Tilda with Fir and Amaryllis Flowers

The first reality check for winter hit last night and today here in MinneSNOWta!!! We know it's coming, but would have been nice to come on gradually. Maybe after being hit with a strong winter storm right away, we will have a nice mild and easy winter!!!! I can dream can't I????

Finally able to get on the internet to share the latest card I made with Tilda with Fir and the beautiful paper from the Merry Christmas 2010 Collection. Also used the DooHickey dies of the Poinsettia's and Swirl. All can be found HERE at Diana's Magnolia-licious! Ooops, Tilda is on re-order, so just let Diana know you are interested. There are lots of other adorable new stamps from this collection available right now though!

Loved these new Magnolia papers......they are such nice quality. This Tilda is so cute with her little pine tree and I took a little artistic license to create my own Amaryllis type flowers out of the Poinsettia dies.

Distress Inks: Tattered Rose, Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Black Soot, Pumice Stone
White Paint and Gel Pen
Snowflake Punch

Monday morning (November 15th), the wonderful gals on the Design Team have worked on another blog hop for Magnolia-licious Highlites. Hope you will follow along and join us for this fun challenge.

Shaker Silent Night Tilda

This was another fun project that the very nice Barb Hardeman has challenged the Magnolia-licious Design Team to make for this month's Sketch Project.

The Magnolia things I used are from Diana at her wonderful store Magnolia-licious.

I've watercolored Tilda with Distress Inks, embellished with the white gel pen and stardust pen. Added acetate to a Spellbinder frame then popped up with foam tape to make the shaker part for the crystal snowflakes.

#3018 Silent Night Tilda
#00 Light Pink Chandelier Glass
Something Old, Something New Wedding Collection Paper
Gold Metallic Cardstock
Spellbinders-Scalloped Edge Frame
Distress Inks-Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage, Pumice Stone, Antique Linen
Jesse James & Co. Dress It Up Crystal Snowflakes
Gold Zig Painty Pen
White Gel Pen
Stardust Pen
Foam Tape and Glue Dots
Just a thought that came after I had put the card together. The #645 Silent Night Background would have been ideal to stamp in the background behind Tilda in a light gold metallic ink.

You can also play along too! Check out all the Design Team projects HERE at Magnolia-licious Highlites and see what you need to do to submit your project. It is not only fun, but you can possibly win some free stamps from Magnolia-licious!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy every day!!!
