Winner for Advent calendar day 15 - Being creamy together with best friend

Hello ..

I'am back again today :)
I know, everyone have been waiting for the winner of day 15 Magnolia advent calendar .. but before I announce who is she .. (because all comment from ladies hee.. hee..)
Let me share my {another} Christmas present this year.


ta raaa  .... 

looks like I can't stop to play with this winter dies, yup! I don't want to wait until next winter to play along with it, so once again I used that wonderful winter scene dies from Magnolia dies club vol 7

For the window I use Vintage Frames, and adhered a piece of vellum for frosty effect.


if you want to make the packaging like I did, it was just simple.
I cut a piece of card stock with  6 x 10.5" 
Score on the short side at 1.5" , 4.5" Score on the long side at 4.5" , 6" 
Cut a window shape on one side, fold and arrange that box with open side on the top, punch a small hole and tied it up with ribbon or twine.

I just made one box, because the other handcream are mine .. lol!!  I just love to use handcream anytime I have a chance! yeah .. that's one of my habit :D :D
Because I love these cream so much I want to send a happy thought to my my best friend and I think I would love being creamy together with her!

ok .. ok ... time to announce!!
the winner from day 15 is ..


Kirsty, please send your detail at :

so I can forward it to Magnolia Sweden soon, again .. Congratulation!!

I wish everyone a Happy Christmas !
May the love, joy and peace be with us, Amen.

Warm Regards,

Magnolia Advent calendar day 15

Hi! and welcome again to another Advent calendar .. and it's me that will serve you for the 15th shutter today.
I don't know why but this year I am so exciting with lots of present, and in love with the winter mood :)
This shutter will contain lots of pictures about a gift set, errr.. sound like a warning isn't it ?
ho ho ho ..
okay, please take a sit, relax and enjoy my shutter ...

I choose a theme for my gift set , it calls "Christmas with the beautiful sparkling frosty heart"

First, here are the tags that I made ..
when I created them, it just silent on my room and I heard on of my favorite Christmas song ..
"This is Christmas" by Celine Dion
I cut the tag manually with 2.5" x 5" shape and I cut a piece white paper with DooHickey winter scene  (Dies club vol.7) then adhere it on the tag with fun foam to make a dimensional look. and I am not forget to give an evening winter feel with Brilliance soft gold using a blending tool.
I do not dispose  the rest of the stars but I am using them to get a beautiful sky on the winter evening.

as you know, I can't resist with these cute girls, I stamp 3 of Tilda holding heart from A Lovely Christmas collection 2015 and guess .. why I color their shirt with 3 kind of colors ??

okay ... before I give you the answer about the 3 colors, that are my tags  with all Tilda.
look! they also have 3 kind of twine colors and every color was matched with Tilda's shirt.

more closer ...
the one on with purple was inspired from "Frosted Plum"
and the green was inspired from "Glazed Apple" while the red one inspired from "Frosted Cranberry"

Ho.. Ho.. Ho..
do you smell something ?? no ?? really ??

yess .. they are the inspirations!
I really want to bring someone a warm thought, and  I think on this Christmas a dear friend of mine really deserved it
I made a box, just simple box nothing fancy at all . but I dies an oval shape in front of the box and decorated it with snow and trees

Wrapped them out with a vellum and I stamped some of snow randomly with white pigment ink.
They are ready to fly! and I am hoping so much they will safety arrived and my dear friends will love them as much as I do.

Each will be get a set like that, with a harmony color and scent .. I just love to pack those gifts!

Okay,  .. that's all from me hope you guys really can enjoy what I serve today and don't forget to leave your words or may be your short story about the Christmas around you ? It would be a beautiful sharing ;)
and remember there are some presents from Magnolia everyday until the end of this December .. don't miss it!

I will be back soon with the winner ..
Thank you so much for visiting and Have a beautiful December everyone !!!

Merry Christmas from Indonesia,

Joyful Christmas - Using fun foam for stamping

Hi !!!
Christmas will be coming very sooooon!!
are you ready folk ?

Today I am happy to share what I am doing if I have to make lots of tags but I found no time longer to sit and doing some coloring.


I decided to make a simple design tag, and when I was searching a decoration stamp along my Christmas sentiment I realized that all my ornament stamps need a coloring, goodness! I can't coloring that much.. 

Ok, how about dies cutting ..I also don't want to roll up my big shot machine over and over on this limited time! So, I  grab a piece of fun foam and cutting it up with DooHickey Vintage Mistletoe.


First I cut a piece water color paper, I use Canson XL due I need a lot tags as well as I want to do some loose water coloring for my tags. I used my MISTI tool to stamp the sentiment because I want all stamped on the same position, I am using versamark and embossed it out with Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder. After all my tags have their sentiment I make a color-wash background using my Winsor and Newton pan - Violet. Next I temporally adhere my mistletoe using temporally tape, that fun foam is very flexible so all I have to do is lay it on my tags and pick it up with the acrylic block then I ink it up with Zig Clean Color real brush and using it like a stamp.

With that technique I was able to make many tags on my limited time, so guys I wish I can provide you an inspiration if you need lots of tags for your Christmases things with less of stressful on this holiday crowded :) I hope!!

And that's all from me today, I will be back on couple days very soon so I am hoping so much I can see you again!
Thank you and Have a wonderful December everyone!!!!!

xoxo, Yulis

Today its my pleasure to provide you a joyful of the Christmas with my work, and because the Christmas is already around of us, I wanna bring your mind up about the heart of this season;
Christmas is about LOVE and give, just because it was winter on the Christmas the ambiance even more beautiful also, and today my work is about wrap the gift with love and sending the word with the beautiful winter scene ..

and here is what I have made to inspiring you this Christmas ..

I made a set, gift and mini tag

I cut the tag manually, and I use Magnolia DooHickeys dies from several dies club
I use fun foam to make a dimensional look from the winter village, and vellum paper help to give more "winter" on it. In front of the vellum I put the Christmas tree and some presents.

Those are some of my little winter tags, the beautiful border also from the dies club

Sometimes I think I can't go with only dies without the cutest Tilda on my card :)
so, I color some of Tilda that hiding a present .. she called Lace Hood Tilda from the newest A Lovely Christmas 2015
I paint with several medium from Distress ink to Winsor and Newton water color pan

And my finished little tag ready to go with the present ;)

taraaa ... Those presents are ready! 
I just wrap the gift with a white printer paper, but first I stamp a Christmas sentiment  on it orderly arrangement with silver lining ink pad
I also cut another tiny tag from the dies club volume 3 and the "Merry & Bright" was embossed with white embossing powder.
I am using cotton twine and twinery to tie everything nicely.
