Let is Snow

Hey there everyone :)  Well... it is Sunday night here in Aus... where DOES the weekend go? We've had the busiest weekend. Good, but busy. 

There is a new challenge over at MDUC today - Let it Snow (although you probably guessed that from the title of my post).  I am well and truly in the mood for Christmas now so thought I'd make some snow flake shape ornaments. 

I inked up two older Tilda's for my snowflakes (the one with the stripy dress is Tilda with Wreath from the Christmas 2006 collection). I finally bought some light coloured Memento ink so I could give the 'no lines' look a go. I quite like how the one on the left turned out, I think it is because of all of the detail in Tilda's dress and wreath.

The snowflakes are cut with the Spellbinders "Fleur de lis" pendant die. All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week! We'd love to see your take on "Let it Snow".

Halo Tilda

Hi there! How was your week?  Good I hope! 

I fired up my Cricut to cut my card base and layers as I was a bit too tired (lazy) to do it by hand ;) 

The adorable stamp is of course Tilda from Magnolia. This one is Halo Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. I've coloured her with Copics and gone a bit glitter mad on her wings and frock.   The sentiment is also from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. The paper lace is cut with Doo Hickey dies and so is the adorable cloud tag and wing.

All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The edges are all inked with Vintage Photo DI and stitched with my sewing machine. The papers are Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather from last year.

Thanks so much for dropping by today.
I will be back tomorrow with another project to share with you. Until then, have a wonderful weekend!

Tilda with hellebores

I'm running late again!! OMG. I am usually so organised and I can't stand being late for anything but lately... I just can't seem to get it together, lol. 

Today I would like to show you my project for MDUC's new challenge.  This week we have a wonderful sketch by my gorgeous Teamie, Debbie P. 

I have had "Tilda with Helebores" sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks now. I am determined to ink each of my Christmas stamps before the next collection is released... we'll see ;)  I have masked Tilda and stamped the Christmas background stamp behind her. The beautiful papers are by Maja Design, sent to me from my gorgeous friend Ing.

The tag base is corrugated cardboard painted with white Gesso.  The embellishments are a mix of Doo Hickey die cuts, Flowers and berries from WOC and some other items from my collection.

I hope you get a chance to enter MDUC this week and have a play with Debbie's sketch!

TOMIC #24 - Decorate a paper bag & photo inspiration

There is a new challenge over at TOMIC ! The challenge this week is to create something using a Paper bag and to use the inspiration photo of the Dala horse. 

I am filing in for one of the girls this week and stupidly thought it was next week :S I was just finishing off my project last night, thinking I was being really good and ahead of time, when the challenge went live, lol. Argh! Panic! 

I've used adorable "Tilda with Cross Stitch Heart" and masked her sitting on the "NOEL" accessory stamp from the 2009 "So Jolly" collection. The gorgeous papers are also Magnolia

I used a flat brown paper lunch bag for my project. I chopped off the ratty top and folded it in half so I had two pockets to put tags in. Sorry the inside isn't decorated!

And finally, the back....

So sorry for being a tad late, lol.
I hope you can join us at TOMIC this week.  Have a great week!

Jingle Tilda

Ohh - it is Saturday! Yay! We have nothing planned at all this weekend and I cannot wait to lounge around all day in my PJs. 

For my card I have inked up one of the adorable new Sweet Christmas Dreams stamps "Jingle Tilda" and collected a bunch of Doo Hickey dies and gone to work!

The papers are from 2009 So Jolly I think! Can you believe I still have them? haha. I am a paper hoarder,  The edges are all distressed, inked and then some silver stickles added for some bling :o)  Do you like my Christmas tree? I had so much fun creating that. But I will tell you more about that in another post.

The inside of the card... the poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts are perfect for decorating inside cards.

And finally a pic of Miss Tilda. 
I hope you have a great weekend planned and with a bunch of craft time scheduled as well. 

Thanks so much for visiting me today, I'll be back tomorrow with something really special to share with you. Until then, have a great weekend!

Skating into the festive season...

I've finally inked up this little cutie pie from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. I just adore each and every stamp in this collection and I really had to restrain myself not to buy them all :o)

The papers are Magnolia from the Yummy in my Tummy collection (i think anyway!!)

I've also gone a teensy bit Doo Hickey mad - I do love those Magnolia dies!  All of the edges are inked with Vintage Photo.

And painted some corrugated cardboard with some white paint. The image has been stamped around with a swirl stamp from the 2007 Pirates and Swirls collection.

So there is my card! I hope you like it.

Have a fantastic week and thanks for visiting me today,
Hugs x

TOMIC #22 - Create a Basket

Good morning! Well.. it is morning here in Aus :o)

There is a new challenge over at TOMIC this week - and this time we are asking you to Create a Basket!  It doesnt have to be any particular type of basket but Kianel has given us an amazing tutorial to try if you wanted to give it a go. 

I really wanted to ink up this adorable little Tilda from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. 

To create my basket, I followed Tanja's tutorial HERE. Thanks Tanja! The gorgeous paper is by Magnolia from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection and the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

On the edge on the basket I have used one of the new edge Doo Hickey dies from Magnolia - love it! And the handle is punched with a MS punch.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week!
Thanks for looking,
