Midweek Magnolias - New Crafty Stash


Happy Hump Day!

I hope you had an awesome Holiday! We spent it with family and friends and enjoyed a wonderful time.

The Midweek Magnolias are starting the New Year with a favorite challenge we love to share after the holidays…

“New Crafty Stash”

Join us for the challenge with some of those new goodies you received for the holidays and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


I got the Magnolia Christmas Advent Calendar kit so my card features “Have Dinner with Me Tilda” from the Recipe Card collection which is so adorable. I love the stamps and dies! The designer papers are from LemonCraft House of Roses collection paired with Bazzill cardstock.


I also used some new dies from La-La Land Crafts Monthly Club kit. The cute world heart and globe is perfect for my “love” theme not to mention the darling Magnolia Rose and Heart tag die cuts. The sentiment is also part of the La-La Land Crafts Club kit and my flowers are from Petaloo and Marianne Designs English Rose die.


Here’s a close up of Tilda water colored with Distress inks.

I’m sure you are wondering who won the draw of my Christmas candy from the Blog Hop and it was....


Congratulations, Donna. Please email me at cathylee.co@gmail.com with your mailing address details so I can send you some goodies.

Thank you to all who stopped by and left me lovely comments. They always inspire me to create my best works and make me smile. 

I hope I've inspired you to join us for the challenge this week.

“Anything Goes with a Magnolia Image”

Join us for the challenge following our theme and rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden and 7 Kids College Fund is offering a gift certificate as well.

To inspire you for this challenge and get those creative juices flowing I created a huge snow globe with a Magnolia winter scene. My snow globe features “Cocoa Tilda” and “Me and My Snowman” from the Aspen Holidays collection.


I water colored my images with Distress Inks and created a wintery background with a 3D sleigh for Cocoa Tilda from the Magnolia Santa’s Sleigh die and added some cute die cut gift boxes from PTI.


Here’s a close up of Cocoa Tilda.


Here’s a close up of Me and My Snowman.


Here is a shot from above showing the sleigh and gift boxes in the snow.

Marvelous Magnolias - Anything Goes Christmas


Hello, Magnolia Friends!

Today I have a new DT card for the Marvelous Magnolias December challenge. This month our theme is…

“Anything Goes Christmas”

Our fabulous sponsor for December is Petal Lu.


My card features “Tilda with Little Rudolph” from the “Aspen Holidays” collection. I water colored her with Distress Inks, fussy cut her out and mounted her on fun foam for dimension. My designer paper is from Magnolia Vintage Box Vol 4 collection paired with Bazzill cardstock. The card shape is also a die from the Vintage Box.


I love creating little winter scenes with my stamps and dies. I used a falling snow stencil on my background paper with Prima snowflake paste and around Tilda’s feet. Tilda’s Hat and gloves also received a coat of Sparkly Fluff. The pretty snowflake dies are from the Magnolia Stamp and Cutz Snowflurries covered with Stardust Stickles.

The Poinsettias and leaves were created with dies from the Vintage Box Vol. 4. The rolled rose was cut with a Marianne Designs die. The landscape house with trees die cut and the snow flurry border at the top of the card are both from La-La-Land December Club Kit.

I finished the card with a Sentiment from the Vintage Box Vol 4 on a Tailored Expressions tag die cut and some gold trim from my stash.


Here’s a close up of Tilda. Isn't she adorable?

Midweek Magnolias - Christmas


Happy Hump Day!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Christmas”

Join us for the challenge following our theme and rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


To inspire you for this Christmas challenge I decided to make a couple of gift tags. They feature “Tilda with Sock Puffs” masked with “Christmas Lace Bench” and “Tilda with Holiday Sweater” from the “Aspen Holidays” collection all water colored with Distress Inks.

My designer papers are from BoBunny Dear Santa collection along with Recollections Kraft cardstock and Bazzill for my die cuts. The base of my tags were cut from Tailored Expressions Label dies with the edges inked in Ground Espresso.


For “Tilda with Sock Puffs” I created a wintery background using BoBunny paper and Lawn Fawn stitched hill die cuts. I added some liquid appliqué to Tilda’s sock puffs and heated them with my heat emboss tool for puffy dimension. Then I added Stardust Stickles to the puffs and the lace on the bench for a bit of glittery bling.


The snowflakes are from Top Dog and Tailored Expressions dies with a coat of Glamour Dust. The Season’s Greeting stamp sentiment is from Papertrey Ink on a PTI banner die.

I finished off the tag with some white satin ribbon and red baker’s twine from my stash.


I fussy cut "Tilda with Holiday Sweater" and adhered her with fun foam for dimension. I used my Wink of Stella clear brush for the reindeer nose.

The Christmas tree and garland die cuts are from the new DooHickey Club Kit Volume 14. I added BoBunny rhinestones to the tree and a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the berries on the garland.


I created my poinsettias with a Marianne Designs die and the Merry Christmas sentiment is from Papertrey Ink on the same banner die.

This tag has green satin ribbon and red baker’s twine from my stash.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join in the challenge for a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


Thanks for stopping by... I'll see you again next week with a new Magnolia card.

Happy Hump Day!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Anything goes with a Magnolia Image”

Join us for the challenge following our theme and rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


My card features “Poinsettia Tilda” from the “Aspen Holidays” collection. I colored Tilda with Distress Inks on an elegant Spellbinders frame. My designer papers are from Graphic 45 St. Nicholas collection along with Bazzill cardstock.


I kept my card fairly simple to let this cute Tilda shine with a festive flower arrangement and some stamps from the G45 collection paired with Magnolia tags. I finished the card with some paper straws and a sweet Santa charm.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join in the challenge for a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.

Marvelous Magnolias - Anything Goes


Hello, Magnolia Friends!

I’m back to share a new DT card with the Romance team for the Marvelous Magnolias November challenge. This month our theme is…

“Anything Goes”


My card features “Lace Hood Tilda” from “A Lovely Christmas” collection. My papers are from Kaisercraft “Silver Bells” collection paired with Bazzill cardstock. The background pattern paper has a musical score so I decided to add a Memory Box Music die cut from silver cardstock.


I used lots of Magnolia DooHickey dies for this card. My slim fir trees were run through my Xyron then covered with Glamour Dust, Sparkle & Sprinkle, and Martha Stewart Glitters.

I created my flowers using the Magnolia flower dies from the DooHickey Club Kit Volume 7. I crumbled them up then unfolded, inked the edges, and added a bit of Martha Stewart lace around the base of the flowers. I also used my Marianne Designs English Rose die for a couple of rolled roses.

I fussy cut two ornaments from the paper collection, paired them with a large layered DooHickey ornament, and adhered them with foam tape. I finished my card with a sentiment tag, also from the paper collection, matted on silver cardstock.


Here’s a close up of Tilda colored with Copics.
