Cross Stitched Tilda

Tried some pinks this time and yup, I cheated!!!  Had some Martha Stewart hydrangea sticker flowers that I had stashed away and decided to use them instead of make my own.

Colored with the Prismacolor pencils and OMS again.  Used the Spellbinders mega scallop rectangle, Cuttlebug With Love embossing folder border, Creative Memories corner punch and a 1/4" circle punch for faux brads.

Appreciate you stopping by and any comments you are kind to leave!

Snow Flowers

Well these aren't necessarily Snow Flowers, but they are white!!!  Decided after all the snow we got lately I needed to see flowers.  Maybe they should be Take a Break from the Snow Flowers!!!

Used a Bosskut flower die, a couple of sizes of sun and mega oak leaf Punch Bunch punches, the Martha Stewart branch punch and Stampin' Up oval punches.  Did some pin pricking around the Old Olive piece, added a piece of More Mustard and layered onto Natural White card stock.  Used a little More Mustard chalk on the flower centers before adding the sun pieces.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Angel

This is an adorable image from a marvelous children's book illustrator and author, Elizabeth O.

I used Stampin' Up! Shimmery White card stock.  The mat pink card stock is a beautiful piece with subtle shimmer roses.  Hard to see on the picture but it is gorgeous paper.  Sorry, don't know the brand name, but thanks to Angie who sent it from Aussie Land!!!  Used the Spellbinders Label 4, corner punch, Cuttlebug  Corner die and textile texture embossing folder.  Flowers and leaves are Punch Bunch, EK Success and Martha Stewart punches.  Colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  Sponged blue chalk over a cloud stencil for the angel background.  Used Crystal Effects on the eyes, halo and sleeve trim.  Accents of ribbon and pearls.

Now I should get back to working on Christmas cards!!!  Time is running out!

My First Tilda!

Friend Marion encouraged me to try some Magnolia Tilda's!  They are such cute girls and another fun thing to color.  Oh-oh, I can see another collecting problem!!!

Colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS, used Oval Plain and Scalloped Nestabilities, Cuttlebug dots embossing folder, Embossed background paper by ?, Punch Bunch and Martha Stewart punches.

Thanks for stopping by and of course, any comments you kindly leave is always appreciated!

This was a stamp I've had for a very long time and never even used it!  Was a little intimidated because I was afraid it is so detailed and thought it wouldn't show all the things in it separately.  Used a variety of colors of distress inks and it was so much fun!  Stamp is by Creative Impressons.  Will have to try this image again and make a red barn next time!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Serene Scene

Tried my hand at a little watercoloring with the Distress Inks.  These inks blend really nice on a watercolor paper.   This was an image I had stamped, but not sure who the stamp was made by.  Might be Creative Impressions.

Fun 3D Christmas Tree

This is just one way to make this fun tree.  Just think of the possibilities of different versions and decorations that could be used on these trees.  The tree is made with the Large Lilium punch and the trunk is just a rectangle piece  of card stock rolled up.  Also used Old Paper Distress Ink, Pesto Adirondack Ink, Stamp-unknown, Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder, Graphics 45 Print Paper, McGill Corner Punch, Punch Bunch Star Punch, Oval, Scallop and Ribbon Tag Spellbinder Dies, and Organdy Ribbon

Really like the easel cards and working with the color combination and papers, so had to try another version.

Before I glued the trees together, I set the pieces together and they reminded me of a Dr. Seuss type tree, so made these crooked for some character.   I saw this tree idea originally from
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope everyone is getting all their things ready for the holiday season!
