Magnolia DT Card + Box~ Season's Greetings!!

Today I want to show you the Magnolia card and box that I created...hope you enjoy! I know I love vintage and I can't resist to make anything vintage!!:=)))Enjoy!!
Magnolia sent me some pop-up foam to make my card, so I used them on this card to make it pop.I took some different view picture for you to see more clearly.

and this is the box that Magnolia sent to me to's simple and I love it...I used Ice stickles to make the gold swirls.

All materials from Magnolia shop except Season Greetings sentiment from Artsy Collage, lace, green and blue prima flowers, Ranger Ice Stickles,Stampin"Up stamp~Lexicon, Ranger Distress Inks~Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap, Hero Arts Old Script stamp, Tsukineko Encore Metalic Silver Ink.
这两个作品是Magnolia的设计,我用不同的角度来拍摄卡片,为了是让大家看这张卡片的设计,因为我用了pop-up foam stickers.小圆盒也是Magnolia寄来要我设计的...上面的金圈是先用铅笔画上去,再用金色的Ice stickles 弄上去.

HHRS~Challenge#4~Anything but!

Today is Sunday and it's HHRS challenge again! This week's challenge is brought to you by the one and only NIKKI!!! We are allowed to make anything but a card! You can make either a tag, altered projects, a treat bag,just NOT a card!

Here is my contribution for the challenge, and I had ALOT of FUN, FUN, FUN, to make this Christmas jar. I plan to put some christmas candy to treat my kids or kids that come to our home for corolling.

It was a plain jar, I washed it clean and decorated it. Firstly, I stamped 3 High hopes rubberstamps on a strip of white paper, which are Fishing Santa,Woodland Santa,Holly the Winter Fairy and colored them with Copic Ciao markers. I cut the edges of the paper with decorative scissors then I brushed some Worn Lipstick Distress ink on the edges of the paper.Seondly, I rub-on Christmas rub-on in between the stamped images. Then I used a stirp of christmas ribbon (green color) and glue it above the white paper.At the bottom of the jar I also added vintage lace.

OK, now, the lid. I used a piece of red paper to make the cover, like the one we seen on the fruit jam. Then I used Christmas rub-on "Be Jolly" on the top.Tied a strip of christmas red and green ribbon, then stamped "Best fishes for a merry christmas"on a piece of paper which had been inked with distress ink and cut with decorative scissors, and tied it on the ribbon.


Before you go pop on over to Jeanne's blog. She has a real treat for all High Hopes fans and has a wonderful write up about the owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps Tina and an interview with the incredibly talented Crissy Armstrong. If you leave a comment on Jeanne's post you will also be in with a chance to win her yummy candy too! There is also more inspiration to be found and she has made two very gorgeous cards.

Don't forget that our Diva candy hop continues and one of our other Diva's also has some sweet stuff. Use the links provided on the right of this post and get hopping!

这本来是一个空罐子,我用来四个High Hopes的印章来装饰,彩上Copic Ciao Markers,再用其他的如:christmas rub-on, ribbon,让整个罐子有圣诞气氛:=))
Materials Used:
Stamps: High Hope rubberstamps
Inks: Ranger Distress Inks~Worn Lipstick, Tsukineko Versafine

She LOVES to make cards and she has so many crafting supplies that I got envy of her...In this meet-up , she gave me this beautiful handmade diary and a Peek-a-boo birthday card, thank you very much, Geam. We had a wonderful dinner in a Japanese restaurant too, hope to meet you again, my friend.
