March Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

 




This is my entry for the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop set for the 25th of each month. The next blog on the hop is Paper Castles by Lori Palmer.

Since these little Tilda sweeties are from Sweden I have been wanting to use this Stampin'Up designer paper from Christmas of this year. It looks Scandinavian to me :) This stamp is Tilda with Christmas Tree and I purchased it from Magnolia-licious. I also used an Alota wall background stamp I purchased from there as well, Diana stocks several of the Alota stamps that work well with the Magnolia Tilda stamps so check them out.

This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square and the card stock is garden green to match the designer paper, plus vanilla and river rock as the base. I used water color to color her in plus Stickles on the "star" areas. The Christmas tree is chipboard, I painted it with crackle paint in linen and then used the green paint dauber to color it and highlight the cracks. Pretty simple but Tilda always makes a card look pretty :)
