Snow Fun - Magnolia-licious 'Winter Fun with Doohickey'


We're kicking off a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The theme for this challenge is 'Winter Fun with Doohickey'.  Along with Magnolia Stamps image(s) we want you to also use Magnolia Doohickey cutting die(s) on you card/project.  To get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Also have a look at what my DT teammates have created to inspire you.  

And here's what I've created for my DT card for the challenge.

This card is actually an easel card.

On the hidden tag, it simply says 'Winter.'

Close-up of the winter scene featuring four Magnolia Stamps images.  Masking work was required to create this scene.

These are the stamps used:
- Tilda in Cozy Coat from the Waiting for Christmas Collection 2014
- Winter Fence from the Santa Collection 2008
- Winter Forest from the Santa Collection 2008
- Frosty With Snowflake from the So Snowy Collection 2009

Part of this challenge is to use Magnolia Doohickey dies.  These are the four doohickeys that I've used:
- Magnolia Doohickey Swirl (and Leaf)
- Magnolia Doohickey Cozy Fern and Snowflake
- Magnolia Doohickey Vintage Tag
- Magnolia Doohickey Old Swedish Lace

Magnolia stamps and Magnolia Doohickey cutting dies are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
