DT Magnolia With Love Collection 2013~ Bonny Tilda Chocolate Wrapping + New Magnolia INK Magazine + My Sydney Trip Photos

Hello my dear friends!! How are you ?? I feel so glad that I can blog again after some rest from my work and trip:-)) I am ready to continue my crafting journey with all your wonderful support and I have so much to share with you !!!

Okay....I think I wish to share my very lastest card with all of's from the lastest Magnolia rubberstamps collection ~ With Love 2013. I love these collection very much and it made me wanted to make a vintage card!! I made a chocolate bar wrapping with the beautiful and yummy rubberstamps!

I just scored the cardstock according to the chocolate bar that I have. Simple and easy, don't need any scoring board.
Colored the Bonny Tilda image with distress ink reinker. { vintage photo + tattared rose}

Cut a piece of white cardstock rather small then the main side of the wrapping. Then, cut a piece of corrugrated cardboard rather small then the white cardstock. Could you notice the love border dies cut? I used Magnolia doohickey dies cut. Then I gather all kind of yummy embelishments such as paper flowers, pink ribbon, old news paper, mini envelope, etc.

Another side-view of my chocolate wrapping. Just fit the chocolate bar:-))

" Love background" from You are So Special 2011. I love the new post rubberstamp, it's from the new collection, With Love 2013.

I die cut the Magnolia doohickey love tag and distressed with Ranger distress ink~ Vintage Photo, to make it distressed-looked. Then, stamped the "Love background".

This is what I LOVE most in this new collection~ With Love 2013. It called " Chocolat" , so vintage, so distressed feel:-)) I stamped it then distressed with Vintage Photo.
The very beautiful silver corners are gift from my teamie- Yulis from Indonesia. Thank you very much !!!

The new Magnolia With Love 2013 Collection. You can find the Collection at many of the online stores now.

And the big news!!!!! The New Magnolia INK Magazine had been release !!!! You can get it here !!!

I wish to share some of our Sydney trip photos if you like to view:-)) We spent a very wonderful time there, the great places, the very helpful and friendly Australian people who made our trip so great and also the great food !!!:-)) Thank you very much Australia!!!
A must for us to take photo with Koala at Featherdale Wildlife Park.

Magnolia Little Christmas Layout

Hello my dear friends around the world:-))
I have a layout to show you with Magnolia new release Little Christmas stamps!
It's always fun to play with new release stamps ( Off course I love "old" stamps too:-))
I don't usually scrap, because I don't have any scrapping skills. I don't attend any scrapping class/workshop. I love to see scrappers' layouts, and wish that I can obtain those fabulous techniques too.
Basically when come into scrapping, I love being messy. Getting those paints on my project was really FUN !!
I hope you don't mind I am going to share this layout with you with all the messy=))

For the base, I choosed Magnolia patterned paper 12"x12", from the collection Sweet Crazy Love-Vintage Red.
I also used other collection of Magnolia patterned papers-Merry Little Christmas, Pion Design patterned papers.
I distressed all the edges of patterned papers with distresser and Ranger Walnut Stain Ink.
I also used doily 4" on my layout, small kraft tag and the most beautiful vintage red Washi tape.
I stamped "Love" background on the small tag then again stamped a post on the small tag too.
The beautiful "Holiday Treasures" from Bo Bonny product.
You can notice that I did some white polka dot on the left side of the patterned paper, you can scroll down on the post, I do some little tutorial how I made it.
I teared a bit the patterned paper and underneath I placed a piece of small paper which I stamped the "love" sentiment.

I twisted and distressed a piece of patterned paper with Ranger Walnut Stain ink.
If you are a Magnolia lovers you can notice that little Magnolia Made with Love tag. It's on the Magnolia product , it's so lovely and I wanted to use it on my project, so easy and you don't need any other decoration, I distressed it with Ranger Walnut Stain ink too.
I make a lasso using raffia to make the Magnolia tag "stand"
A pearl string also used to make the layout more elegant look.

I used a lot gesso paint on my layout.Around the photo, on the corrugrated board, here and there.....
The very cute "Cocco with Present" stamp was stamped with Tsukineko Memento Black ink on 200gsm Canson watercoloring paper and colored with Ranger Distress inks.

and the very innocent Cozy Christmas Bear stamp, also colored with Ranger distress inks.
The sentiment " Merry Christmas" from Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dream Collection 2011.
I stamped it with Tsukineko Memento Black ink on a piece with white paper.
Beautiful paper flowers from I am Roses, Magnolia.

I whitewashed all the edges of the patterned paper with gesso paint and Snow-tex from Deco-Art.
The dies "fence" from Magnolia DooHickey dies cut.
Ribbon and lace from my stash ( so sorry I really forgot where are they from?)

I made two beautiful poinsettia flowers with Magnolia DooHickey christmas poinsettia dies cut on Magnolia patterned papers.
I painted the flowers with snow-tex.

Do you have any used spool or you can buy a new spool too? Use it on your project:-)
I also teared a bit of patterned paper at the bottom right side. Then, I stamped "Love"background on a piece of paper and placed it below the patterned paper.
Here you can notice I used the very beautiful Washi tape again ( can't resist !):-))


Here I show you how I make the white polka dot. I handmade my mask by using a piece of plastic sheet then punched with ticket puncher.

Then I arranged my patterned papers to get what I want my layout look like.
Then I know where I should make the white polka dot.That's at the top left hand side.

I placed the handmade mask on the patterned paper then painted with gesson paint on the dot.

I painted three or four times.

Then misted with some ink, I used alcohol ink then mixed with some water.
After I done with this I decorated the layout as I wish :-))
I hope that you will get some inspiration from my layout specially if you wanted to make your Magnolia Little Christmas stamps more special. A special layout is recommanded! :-))
This is a long post and if you have any questiions or comments , don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you very much in advance for your viewing and support !
Happy Magnolia-ing !!
