Wild Honey Tilda

A quick posting here of Circus Tilda and the Carousel Horse, not the traditional colors you would think they might be, but thought these were appropriate for the fall season. Lovin' the Wild Honey color. Colored them with Distress Inks and used some papers out of my stash.

Distress Inks: Tattered Rose, Wild Honey, Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, Pumice Stone, Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy
Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punch
Punch Bunch Twig Punch
Cuttlebug Corner Die

You can find the Magnolia Stamps HERE at Magnolia-licious. Circus Tilda is on reorder right now, so Diana will be getting her back in again soon. She is so sweet and the horse is just adorable! Added the Just Sittin' Here Thinking of You stamp because then the card can be used for many occasions.

Thanks for checking in and enjoy the day!

Pearlized DooHickeys

I based this on a wedding card I recently made, but wanted to use the awesome Magnolia DooHickey dies. Love the lacey flower, snowflake, leaves and the cute little dragonfly. With the pearlized paper and of course being all white, the photo didn't work very well with my lighting, but will have to try in natural light and see if I can make it show up better.

The pearlized paper has a little design to it too. All the dies are available from that nice Diana at Magnolia-licious. Click HERE to go to the store.

#17 Snowflake/Mistletoe
#6 Bon Voyage Foliage
#7 Old Swedish Lace
#8 Doily Flowers
#9 Dragonflies
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder

A tip when using the dies, if you have trouble with the paper sticking in the die, use a piece of wax paper between the die and paper. I've been able to leave the wax paper in the die, but if it comes out, it still helps make the paper come out easier.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the day!!!

Now isn't she just the sweetest with her bunny slippers and little bow in her hair!  Colored her with Distress Inks.  Used a Nestabilities Label 11, Scallop Oval and two plain Oval dies to make a frame and insert.  Sponged the frame with Stampin' Up!'s Mauve Mist ink to go with the matching paper.  Used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder for the background.  Added a ribbon bow and a few flowers from Martha Stewart's Hydrangea and Frond punches.   The thinking of you stamp is from Hero Arts.  Added pearls.

You can find this little Miss at Diana's Magnolia-licious store.  This stamp is from the Autumn 2010 collection and she is #336 Tingla in Bunny Slippers.

Northwoods Scenes

Colored a couple of Northwoods stamp images.  They sure have some nice ones!  Of course, I love the fall scenes so I can use all the earthy colors.

The fall leaves are just gorgeous here right now and the colors just pop in the sunlight.  Such a beautiful site and trying to enjoy them while they are here before we see these winter scenes which will come all too quickly!

Stamped the images in Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder.  Watercolored with the Distress Inks and embellished with the Stardust pen, Ranger enamel for the black faux brads, Glossy Accents to make some things shiny and a white gel pen.  Sure wish the shimmer and shine showed up better on pictures!

As always appreciate the time taken to stop by and also leaving the comments.  They mean so much and I enjoy every one of them!  Just love the connection I feel I have with all of you across the world!!!

Enjoy every day!!!

Hot Tub Babes

What a fun image to color!  Didn't even add any flowers or other things to the card.  This wonderful babes stamp is from Art Impressions.  Used the distress inks for water coloring and even though it doesn't show, used the Stardust pen for some subtle shimmer.  Also used a white gel pen, gold pen and Glossy Accents.  Decided after I took the picture to add a couple of rhinestones, one as a diamond ring and the other on a shoe.

Couldn't resist to make one of the gals sunburn!

Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy every day!!!

October Wedding Card and Box

Decided to make a rose and add some lilies with the same Ice Silver paper the bride used for her wedding invitations and such.  She also used a beautiful glittered yellow paper, so I added a few filler flowers made out of that paper in the arrangement.
The Spellbinders dies make it so easy to make a card look elegant.  I've used the scalloped edge frame and embossed the center piece with the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder for both the card outside, inside and the top of the box.  Also used the Spellbinder hearts for the accent piece and the Label 3 die for the top of the box words.
Used the following Punch Bunch punches:  The pear punch for the rose, the lilium feathers punch for the lilies, the birch leaf for the rose leaves, the deco flake for the filler flowers and the McGill branch for the ferns.  The stamens in the lilies are pre-made from the craft store.
Used the Stampin' Up! slot punch on the sides of the box, so I could put the ribbon on the top part of the box so the cover can be removed without untying the ribbon.
Enjoyed making this card and it was an absolutely gorgeous day for the wedding!

Thanks for stopping by and take time to enjoy every day!!!

Birthday Card for Someone Special

 Made a birthday day for a special friend!  Enjoyed getting back to some floral punch projects.

Used the Punch Bunch ovoid, daisy, rock fern punches and used a Cuttlebug leaf die.  Also the deco corner punch and Spellbinders Circle and Scallop Nestabilities.  Paper is some old K & Company paper from my stash.  Hate to think how old it is but was saving for something special!  Used a satin ribbon and added some half pearls.  Made the bow on the Bowmaker.
 Hey Pam, I did post your question because others might want to know too!  Here is a picture of the ovoid petal punch.  Cute shape and you can use either the point end out or the two bump end out.  Another one to add to the collection!!!  :)

Check back tomorrow and I'll be posting a wedding card that I made.

Beautiful week end, hope you enjoy the days!

William's Bag of Candy

 Well darling William needed a bag to hold all the candy he is going to get!  He is so cute with that toothy grin innocently standing there with a flower, but then you can imagine how mischievous he probably is too with that slingshot in his pocket!!!

The Magnolia-licious DT has the October Sketch Project up at Magnolia-licious Highlites.  Thanks to Angie who is hosting and challenging us to create projects that are both Fall themed AND use a brown paper lunch bag!  Hope you will join us and create a project too.  The kind Diana from Magnolia-licious has offered another wonderful prize too, so check out the details here.

Since I used the cutie Martha from the Magnolia Goblin Collection the last time, couldn't leave William out!  Yes, I did determine he has a tail, so colored it to match his hair!  Thanks to those that contributed their ideas!!!
