Galaxy Tilda | by Anna Sigga
Hello there crafty friends!

When I saw the Galaxy Tilda with XOXO stamp I knew I just had to make a card using this fun image.

My first plan was to create a space themed kind of card, but when I started colouring this fab Tilda I was feeling kinda flowery - still space themed in a way.

So this is what I came up with - sparkly, flowery space girl all coloured up and ready for adventures. Not your traditional space-themed card but I kinda like her.

Thanks for stopping by today and if you are looking for more inspiration from me you can check out my YouTube channel and of course my blog: Scrappalicious.

From Our House To Yours |  By Liz
Hi guys, I'm here today for the  Swedish House Crafts blog with a card I've made using some of the
fabulous products available at Swedish House Crafts

I couldn't resist using the super house stamp by magnolia, I coloured it with my copics and then added some Liquid Applique for the snow effects. I then used another stamp this time by Gummiapan called Angelpost on the edges to give a little added interest too,

I Love love love this adorable snowman die. So I cut him out and added another hat on top coloured again with my copics. Then I found a little bit of this trim in my stash and made him a scarf. I adhered him in front of a Doo Hickey lovely fence die. 

On the other side of my card I die cut out these trees in the paper and then again finished them off with some of the Liquid Applique.

I used one of the adorable images as an embellishment too.

At the top right of the card I added a cute Gummiapan die snowflake, simply adding a gem in the middle.

Products I used:-

Magnolia - Waiting for Christmas - Snowy Cottage
Gummiapan - Angelpost stamp
Maja design - I wish ( this was done in the 6" x 6 " paper pad which has totally sold out but you can still get the some of the 12" x 12"
Gummiapan - Snowflake Die
Gummiapan - Snowman Die
Doo Hickey - Lovely Fence die

Do check out all the fabulous products over at Swedish House Crafts. Why not treat yourself or treat a friend, as I think they would make great Christmas presents to a another crafter!!!

Happy Crafting!!!
Hugs Liz xx

Life In The Country | By Becky
Morning everyone, Becky here with you today, thank you to Katie for stepping in for me on Monday. A nasty tummy bug had hit our house and I didn't have the oomph to do anything.

Those observant ones amongst you may have noticed this image on my desk during the blog hop...

I decided to go with a muted theme, with a few pops of pink, on both the image and by using VIVID FUSCHIA PAPER FLOWERS. The papers are from Maja Designs 6x6 paper pad LIFE IN THE COUNTRY.

Another fuschia paper flower along with a WHITE CURL FLOWER.

Unfortunately Gummiapan no longer make this gorgeous alium die :(   but the other Gummiapan dies are still available, the Chicken Wire die is available HERE and also the Stitched rectangle which is HERE. These nested stitched dies are perfect for using on images. The other flowers are a WHITE GREEN CHERRY BLOSSOM, a WHITE DAISY and a frozen pomegranate.

Have a lovely weekend, and thank you for popping by,

Let Your Dreams Set Sail | By Lynn
Hello everyone - Lynn here!

My turn to share a make using the fabulous products from Swedish House Crafts. You can click on the items I used in the text - this will take you straight to the item in the shop.

I used as the base of my card Maja Designs Denim and Friends paper collection - I thought the stars looked like they would be in the sky, also some of the papers torn and inked to look like waves.  I added some mica flakes in blue and silver to give the sea some dimension.

I just love these cute Gummiapan houses and with some paper behind the apertures I thought they looked a little like beach houses. I actually cut them from two sizes of the paper from Maja 6 x6 and the 12x12 wood paper. I inked the edges with Peacock Feather oxide ink to make them look a little weather worn.

I cut around the beautiful mermaid from the Pion design paper "Images of the past - Legends of the sea" 12x12 sheet and then embellished her with a wink of stella and glitters.

Thanks for looking and you can visit my personal blog here.

Pink Christmas card | By Tamara

Hi! Tamara here with you today. I have a Magnolia Christmas card for you this time. For this card I used Tilda with Holiday Sweater from Aspen Holidays collection, 2016. The image was coloured using Distress ink pads on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper.

I stamped a few snowflakes arround the image (Sparkle Snowflakes - Waiting for Christmas coll., 2014). Papers used on this card are from Maja Design - Vintage Frost Basics.

I used a lot of die cuts from different past volumes of Magnolia's Doohickey boxes. I can't stress this enough, but these boxes are my favourite thing to get in the mail. Serioulsy, they are awesome!!! There's still a few of them available to order, check them out HERE. Once they are sold out, you can't get them anymore! (at the moment I'm waiting for Advent calendar, Doohickey box vol. 17 and Vintage box vol. 6 - Sleigh Bells to arrive!!!!)

There's a few dies from the regular offer too on my card:
Dream tag - Magnolia
Jeans tag - Magnolia
Denim tag - Magnolia
Roxstamps - Nesting Round Dies - Cross Stitched

That's all from me today! Have fun!

Jump for Joy | by Olga
Hello, it's Olga. My project for today is an Advent Calendar card - yes, it is an Advent Calendar that can actually be mailed in an envelope!

I have combined several different stamps to create this cute Christmas scene. The card turned out to be flat and mailing friendly. I also used some "scratch here" stickers to make the calendar with - watch the video to see how it was done!

Coffee Goodness! | By Nancy

Hello, friends! It's Nancy here with a new card to share with you! I did some fun layering with these gorgeous Fall papers from Maja Designs, with kraft cardstock in between! I inked all the edges before adhering them together. 

I stamped the coffee sentiment background on the final layer, and matted it with kraft. Unfortunately, these background stamps are all sold out. This final layer was mounted on foam tape for some extra dimension. Here's a closer look:

I die-cut the coffee cup and the two coffee beans from kraft cardstock. Since the background papers were so busy, I opted to keep all the pieces together. I did pop out the little heart but I filled it with some Stickles. 

Here's a closer look at the coffee beans which I placed on the other side:

Here's one final look at the final card:

Thanks so much for stopping in today! I'll be back with another project soon!

Live Love Laugh Heritage 12 x 12 Scrapbook layout using Gummiapan Stamps and Dies | By Katie

Hi all

I have a mixed media layout to share with you today. I wanted to show how you can use your Gummiapan stamps and dies on scrapbook layouts.

Products used (Click on the links to buy)

Live Love Laugh

Coffee Stain

Film Negative

Worn Chessboard

Butterfly Monarch Large

Integrated Rectangles

Doodled circle die

Chevron Line

Chevron Line

Once you have chosen your photo and papers. Take a palette knife and smooth gesso onto the background page. Next spritz the area with sea green ink and then stamp some texture around the page using blue ink.

Cut up your papers and layer them onto the page. Add bits of trim and washi tapes to add more texture and apply stencils using modelling paste. Then cover it all in gesso. Paint over the top with green and blue inks and allow some to drip down the page.

Cut out a circle and the interlinked rectangles out of card. Paint with gesso and then ink before adding them over the top of the first layer

Add more stamps around the page using black and dark blue ink. Mount the photo onto plain paper and then stamp around the frame with a butterfly stamp.  Add a few clusters of flowers and paint ink over the top so they match the page.

Create embellishments using modelling paste and a silicone mould. This takes between 24 and 48 hours to fully set so I make these in advance.
