Christmas Is Coming

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


I have a pop-up book card to show you.  I've made another tutorial for Splitcoaststampers and this is the end result.

Close-ups of the adorable images from Magnolia Stamps being featured, coloured with Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias, with a few coloured pencils to help with the shading:

- Tilda With Long Hair from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012

- Tilda With Tag Gifts from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012 

Magnolia Stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  Although the stamps for these two images are not in stock as they from an older collection, you can find other equally adorable images there, full-size and minis.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosCandibeans and now Saturated Canary.  Prices are discounted!
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies.  ALL dies are currently on SALE at 25% off!!!  Have a look!
You get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% in-store credit to be applied to future purchases.  Sweet!

I am using this card to enter the following challenges:
Totally Tilda Challenge #107 - Christmas Tilda Wearing Red (inside the card)
Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge #126 - Cut It Out

If you're interested in how I made this card, you can see it in the Splitcoaststampers Pop-Up Book Card tutorial HERE.  (And yes, it's a remake of the tutorial I did for my own blog, with a slight variation, which you can find under the 'Tutorials' page above.)
