Warm Wishes - Magnolia-licious 'White On White'

If you're looking for the Magnolia-licious Holiday Blog Hop, click HERE.


We're midway in our current 'White On White' challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  It's Team B's turn to post our cards/projects as a midway reminder--Team A posted theirs last week.   Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for complete details on the challenge and how you can join in the fun.  And have a look at what my DT teammates have created to inspire you.

I have created a shadow box card.

I love making white-on-white cards--it's another favorite style of mine...hmm, I have many faves!  One reason is because I don't have to spend time searching for co-ordinating paper for a colour scheme...ha ha--it takes me forever to do this.  And all those whites make the coloured images you're featuring pop out.

Tutorial on the pine cones you can find HERE.

Here are close-ups of the Magnolia images I've used:

- Tilda on the Roof from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012

- Mini A Joyful Tilda from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013
- Mini Show The Way Baby Rudolph from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013

- Old Swedish Church from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012
I used this image to help me create the background scene.

Amazing card! The wonderful colored stamps really pop in pure white.
I've never done a white-on-white card because I will have a bored result, but after this pretty one maybe I should give a try.

I love you WOW card! Totally beautiful and I enjoyed your pinecone video too! Thanks for sharing1
Hugs, Cathy-Lynn

Heather said...

I think white on white is a difficult challenge, but I agree with you that it does save having to look for coordinating paper (at which I struggle). Anyway, this is gorgeous and you created so much texture and interest that it almost doesn't even look like it is all white. Those pinecones are fabulous; they look almost real. Thanks for playing with CSAYL. Sorry I'm so late in commenting.

Fabiola said...
