Just Magnolia #84.... Believe and No Peeking!

Hey crafty friends! I made a few more christmas cards for the Just Magnolia challenge, Anything Goes with Sparkle!

I love this stamp, Tilda with Fir, she is so sweet and I love her Uggs, (I soooo want a pair,lol)! Again, I made yet another easel card with BG Jovial and a Magnolia Tree stamp embossed with Northern Lights embossing powder! I have to say keeping a similar style to all my Christmas cards has made the process easier. I used some AC ribbon, cotton lace trim and a Melissa Frances Rub-on and a Catslife Press label stamp.

For this card I coloured my favorite stamp, Secret Tilda, from the Magnolia Merry Little Christmas collection this year. I am totally in love with my new toner Copic markers too. I got T1, T3 and T5 at Scrapfest and will have to get a few more. They are absolutely fabulous for toning down some of the more vibrant colours. Adding the toner marker on Tilda's outfit gave me a grey teal colour that matched the paper better. Also my new fave Copic colour combo for Hair is E41, E42, E43, E44, E49....I have been using it a lot lately.  I used BG Jovial papers, an Elements sticker tag, a sheet from Capella pad and an Olivia fabric brad.  I embellished with Prima Flowers and lace trim. The sentiment stamped on the BG Elements sticker is from the Kelly Panacci Christmas stamp set. 

I once again used the Magnolia tree embossed with Northern lights embossing powder for the sparkle and I also used my MFT large Scalloped border Die-namics die. 

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my cards! I still have a few more to make, oh boy, remind me next year to get cracking on the cards earlier, will ya, he, he, he!

Happy stampin'!

Your streamlining of the cards is so cleverly done for they look so different. The colours of both are great & I like your work with those T Copics. That's my next project - for 2011 - work on colouring.
