Christmas - Shadow Box

Happy Weekend Lovelies,


Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 28 - Bedazzled


I have also entered this into the following Challenges
Stamp Something - Glitzy Somethings 
Just Magnolia - A card for someone special

you can see the sparkle by clicking on the photo

Bedazzled - sparkly glittery goodness (a girls best friend) - You can use stickles, glitter, gems, rhinestones, dazzling diamonds, whatever is bright & sparkly (easy for me, sometimes I go a little overboard with the bling, but my motto is "A girl can never have too many diamonds or too much bling, I could go on with Chocolate, shoes, bags etc)


This fortnight is sponsored by Magnolia Down Under Store with this Chirstmas cutie - wish I could win this one, she is adorable & could be used not just for Christmas but also Birthday's etc.


I know I have been a bad blogger over the past month with health issues and new puppy, but hopefully now I can resume as per normal. Wow, 2 posts within a few days, woohoo for me. 

Anyways, I had to try my hand at these amazing Shadow Box cards, I was over drooling at Suzanne Dean's wonderful blog Scrap Bitz & spotted a wonderful Shadow Box and had to try it out. Suzanne has listed a link to the tutorial here and it is by a  Splitcoast Stamper, Dawn Griffith. If you haven't stopped by Suzanne's blog it is a must see & full of jaw dropping amazing wonderful creations, but also lots of tutorials for Copic colouring, Flowersoft, Easel cards and many more. Thanks Suzanne.


I resized my Shadow Box to 6 x 8 (giving me a 6x6 card front) - I used my Nestie Labels to cut the window - stamped the Christmas tree in the background with lots of stardust stickles. Papers by MME, coloured my images with Copics, added an organza bow made with my bow easy, a star & snowflake from my stash and finished.





I have used 4 Magnolia stamps this time - Christmas Tree (older collection) Jolly Tilda, Christmas Presents & Merry Christmas - all from the So Jolly Under the Mistletoe New Christmas Collection.

Hope you will stop by & see what the other Design Team Members have created for you they are all amazing! Thanks for joining this wonderful challenge, I can't wait to see what you come up with & hope to see you join us again next challenge. 


Don't forgot if you loved the first issue of Magnolia Ink Magazine - Kellie from Magnolia Down Under Store is taking orders now for the FAIRY TALE Issue from Magnolia, Issue 2 packed full of inspiration, ideas and tutorials.




Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you and your families. 
Wishing you a safe, healthy and crafty New Year.
