DT-MDUC is getting Bedazzling!!

Hi there dear blogging pals,
I hope you are all well today,
I hope you are getting some rest
from the Christmas shopping mayhem
that is taking place, no doubt!!
It's time for a new challenge over at
Magnolia Down Under Challenges
and it is
so get out your Maggies, gems, Stickles, glimmer mist,
rhinestones, glamour dust, Smooch, perfect pearls,
oh, you get the idea!!!
We can't wait to see what you come up with,
and with Christmas right around the corner,
this challenge goes hand in hand with the season!!
You're going to want to get in on this one,
Kellie is sponsoring this challenge with the
overtly-precious Christmas Eve Tilda as the prize!!
She is definitely on the "NEED" list and would be
the perfect little Christmas gift for YOU!!!!
So go check it out!!

And without further ado, here's Snowie!!!

And to think I was having a hard time with this challenge...
The wonderful Sue stamped me this cutie snowman
and I am so glad she did because it is precious
and loads of fun to bring to life!!
I've coloured in distress inks and gone around
in Diamond Stickles to make Snowie sparkle!!
The papers are from the new Magnolia collection,
you can find yours at Magnolia Down Under here,
the punches are Martha Stewart,
the snowflakes were glimmer misted and then
Stickled in Waterfall with a
Jolee's Swarvoski crystal placed in the center,
the charm, lace and hemp are from my stash.

A slight side angle to show you my stamped snowflakes.
It's nice, you can see them when they catch light,
I stamped snowflakes onto the Magnolia paper
with Brilliance Moonlight White ink and then
heat embossed with Crystal powder,
which is quite nice to have executed,
usually I scorch the paper when I try to heat emboss.
This paper is magical I tell you!!

In true Challenge Hog fashion,
I've got some places I'll be popping this in at:
Layout courtesy of PaperTake Weekly,
Stamp Something is hosting a Glitzy Somethings challenge,
and Simon Says use charms!!!
Have you seen SS Stores' charms?? Totally gorgeous!!!

I guess I'd better wrap this up before I
am accused of Wafflery!!
Make sure to pop your project in at our
Magnolia Down Under Bedazzled Challenge,
we can't wait to see what you're all creating!!
Take Care,

This is super duper cute - I have this little guy on order - hope I use him as well as you!!! Love all the sparkly snowflakes too - gorgeous!

Tracey Feeger said...

What a great card. He is such a cutie and as you can see I love him too. Snowmen are just devine. Love the colours you used. It is a shame we don't have snow here at Christmas as it would be so good to use more of these cuties. Wonderful inspiration for anyone joining the challenge.

Kellie said...

OK wow, your shading and colouring of this snowman is inspiring! I have one and got a bit "lost" but this is a huge help. I love what you have done with everything and can't wait for it to arrive in my mail box......Worth a try!? A gorgeous inspiration to all playing along with us this fortnight.

Hugs Kel xo

Snowy never looked so good, Steph. Love those crystals and papers too. I'm bedazzled by this card. That touch of red of the hemp with the charm hanging from it is such a great touch. Lace is gorgeous! Wonderful card, you know my address, hee hee!

Stephanne, ahhhh, I love it when you waffle. Your Snowy is dazzling. I just love the colours, all the glittered & glammered snowflakes and the stunning lace. Your distress colouring is amazing, it adds that wonderful vintage look with the gorgeous Magnolia red gingham. Just beautiful. A wonderful inspiration to all playing along at MDU for this challenge.
