Good Witch Tilda

The Magnolia-licious Highlites Brooms and Bats Blog Hop was so much fun, just had to work on another Halloween card.  Thanks to all for hopping along and also leaving the great comments!  I really appreciate that!  Seems like I managed to fool a few of you by using Goblin Martha!  Yup, she is a Magnolia stamp!   She is a real different looking character isn't she???  Had quite a few interesting takes on William too!    I'm working on a project with him, so you'll be able to see my take soon!  Is it a flower???  Is it a tail???  Or something else????

Had a Sizzix Witches, Hat, Broom and Shoes die and just had to try them on Tilda!  These are a little oversized for Tilda, but that makes it all the more fun!!!  Not much coloring on this one, did paper piecing for the hair, dress and socks.  Used the appropriately named Spellcaster Tilda and you can find her HERE at Diana's Magnolia-licious store!

The papers are some older ones I had from Reminisce.  The cat and zigzag border along with the "Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween" were cut from the papers.  The bats are from a Punch Bunch punch.  Embossed the orange background with the spots and dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and accented things with the Stardust and white gel pens.

Thanks for checking in!
Enjoy every day!!!

Martha is Looking for Sweet Treats

Aren't Halloween and Fall projects fun to make???!!!!  If you are following along on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Bats and Broomsticks Blog Hop and came from Suzanne's wonderful blog, you have made it to the very end.  If you stopped by on your own, you will want to start at the beginning because you won't want to miss the fabulous creations of the Design Team from Magnolia-licious.  You can find the blog hop list here.

Well Martha isn't our normal sweet Tilda, but I got this adorable Goblin Martha from Diana at Magnolia-licious and thought she really would fit in well for a Halloween card.

#807 Goblin Martha
Papers from Stash (Cloud 9 and Reminisce)
Distress Inks for coloring:  Tattered Rose, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone
Bat Punch
Drippy Goo Punch from Martha Stewart
Black Pearlies
White Gel Pen, Stardust Pen
Glossy Accents

Water colored Martha with Distress Inks, cut her out and popped her up with foam tape.  Punched out the ghost circles from some patterned paper and made Martha's treat bag out of scraps.  Used Glossy accents on one of the houses on the paper and on the drippy goo borders.  Added some punched bats, black dewdrop like things and used the white gel pen and stardust pen for some extra jazz!
So Martha did find some Sweet Treats in the poppers!!!  Sorry, don't have the pattern for these written up just yet, but I'll try to get it posted here eventually.

Now if you can help me, I also have  Sweet Goblin William!!!  You can check him out here.  Love his mischievous toothy grin!   When I was going to start coloring him, I noticed he has something different.  He is holding a flower in one hand, but not quite sure if he is holding something in his other hand or if he has a tail!!!  What do you think????

Hope you enjoyed the hop and will play along with a Halloween or Fall themed project.  You'll also have a chance at winning something fun!  Details here at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog

Thanks for stopping by and as always so appreciate any comments you are so kind enough to leave!

Enjoy every day!

Fall Is On It's Way!

I just love fall and the colors of fall!  Hopefully with all the rain we've had this summer, the colors will be brilliant this year!

Put together some things I've had in my "collections" for some time.  Colored Tilda with Distress Inks and made the flowers with the Cuttlebug Chrysanthemum quilling die.  The colored leaves were some pre-made ones from my stash.

 Diana does have this stamp in her Magnolia-licious store here!  And oh my, there are some new cuties to check out too!!!

Enjoy every day!!!

Tilda Ready to Travel

Here is my Design Team project for the September Challenge on Magnolia-licious Highlites.  Becca Feeken came up with a fun challenge of using one of the new Bon Voyage Stamps and a suitcase or backpack.  I've taken Suzanne Dean's cute gift card suitcase pattern and enlarged it to fit an A2 card.

Water colored the Tilda's with Distress Inks and used a couple of the DooHickey dies.  The pretty paper is from Magnolia too.  Did use a bit more embellishments on this project than the last!!!   :)  Used ribbon for the handle and attached with silver brads.  Sponged some white acrylic paint along the edges of the paper and the tag die cuts.  Embossed the tags with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and now wished I would have also done the scallop circle corners too.  Maybe next time!

 #215 Farewell Tilda
#738 See You Later
#1407 Dragonfly
#384 Jam Tilda
#1 Vintage Tag DooHickey die
#7 Old Swedish Lace DooHickey die
Bon Voyage Paper Pack
Nestability Scallop Circle Die
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.
Silver Brads-Stampin' Up!
White Glaze Pen
White acrylic paint

Please check with the very nice Diana for all the Magnolia products here at the Magnolia-licious store.  Lots of new stamps, papers and dies to add to our Maggie collections!!!

This project couldn't have been easier with the use of the Scor-Pal.   Diana is the creator of this fabulous tool and with Suzanne's easy directions, my first try of this box turned out perfectly!   You can find the Scor-Pals along with the new must have Scor-Buddy here.

My dimensions for the larger suitcase are:  7 3/4" x 12"
Score your card stock on the short side (7 3/4") at 1" and 6 3/4"
Score your card stock on the long side  (12")     at  1", 5 1/2", 6 1/2", and 11"

Hope you will give this challenge a try!  It was lots of fun and just think of the possibilities!!!

Enjoy every day!!!
