Frosty's Hat

Good morning everyone, I have a little project to share with you today. 
This is a little top hat that I made "Frosty's Hat".


I have used Doo Hickey dies to create and decorate the hat and one of the adorable new stamps from this year's Christmas collection, A Lovely Christmas. 


My hat was inspired by a Halloween hat that I saw on another blog this week, Lemoncraft.
Tilda is coloured with Copics

Pearl strand, mini pine cone and twine are from The Ribbon Girl. 
The lace is Websters and the ribbon is Stampin Up.


If you would like to see how I made my little hat, there will be a tutorial on the Magnolia DT blog later :)

Until later, happy crafting!

Another Christmas Card

Here we are again, another Friday.
My boys are back at school this week and it has been very quiet here at home, Lolly and I are missing them immensely. We are very much looking forward to this afternoon when they're home for the weekend.  


I finally have a card to share with you using the beautiful stamps from Magnolia's fall stamp club. Pauline has outdone herself yet again! This beautiful little Tilda is from the club, masked together with the Christmas tree stamp from .... 2013 Winter Wonderland I think? I can't be 100% sure, time is flying by. 



I have also used some of the dies from the Doo Hickey club vol 7 and vol 2. Along with some Doo Hickey dies from 
The papers are Kaisercraft - very bright and cheerful. 


Tilda is coloured with Copic Markers, as is the background. 
All edges of the papers are inked in DI Old Paper. 


So.... there we have it. Another Christmas card finished for the year. Three down..... several more to go! I will undoubtedly be back with more in the coming weeks. The stamps are just far too adorable not to sit and colour. 

Until then, happy colouring!

Truth, Sincerity, Dedication

Happy FriYay everyone,
well..  last day of school holidays over here and boy, we have managed to have a lovely time together.

I have a new card to share with you today which features Ninja Edwin from the Sakura collection. He is soo cute. My husband and boys are all into Jujitsu so this was one stamp I just had to have. 



He has been paired with some lovely Basic Grey papers "Serenade". The sentiment says "Makoto" which means Truth, Sincerity, Dedication. 

The embellishents are all from The Ribbon Girl




Well... that is about it from me today, I received the Magnolia stamp club in the mail so I can't wait to have a little play with those over the weekend. 

Until next time,
Kylie xx

Ribbon Girl - Pearls and Lace

Hi everyone,
Finally, I can share a card I made for a special occasion recently, my sister's 40th birthday.
I decided to use this adorable Sarak Kay stamp from Stampavie which shows a little girl and her dog.  Growing up, my sister and I had matching doona covers of a similar Sarah Kay illustration in pink and blues, so it seemed appropriate to use this stamp for her birthday card. 

I also used the opportunity to make my card for the Ribbon Girl October card challenge - Pearls and lace.

I used: Bark hearts small, Dusky Blue Button Twine, Beaded berries Ivory/Cream, 4 Row Pale Ivory Bridal White Pearl Mesh, 5mm Pearl and Diamante Embellishment, 45mm Blanche Embroidered Tulle Lace, 12mm Molly Ivory Daisy Guipure, Seam Binding Limoges Blue, 3mm Ivory Pearl Bead String, Blooms Tiny Vintage Aqua, Stickles Stardust



She's a pretty little girl with a sweet little doggy. We had one similar when we were growing up and I am fortunate enough to have another beautiful little fur ball now to share with my little kids. 

I hope you get a chance to head along and join the Ribbon Girl card challenge, the prizes this week are from Ribbon Girl and LOTV, not to be missed. 

I hope to share something else later in the week with you. I have my little boys home on school holidays at the moment so we might all head into the craft room together :) 

Until then, 
Happy crafting xx
