I Love You THIS Much!

Hello My Crafty Friends!  I hope all is good on your side of the computer screen.

I'm so proud of myself, as I actually got this card finished on Tuesday and that is a huge deal for me because I am always so last minute.  I see all of these talented card makers out there posting a new card like every other day and wonder what kind of vitamins they're taking.

Anyhoo, this is my Design Team make for the latest Tilda's Town challenge and our theme this week is IT'S ABOUT LOVE.  A great opportunity to get a special Valentine or two made for the special someone/s in your life and win a $10 gift voucher to boot. 

This is Tiptoe Tilda from the  2014 Animal Of The Year collection.  She's so cute and I just love that hair.  I've colored her up with Copics to match the pretty digital papers by Sweet Shoppe Designs.  I am using my new Heart Banner die that I got for myself for Christmas.  I love it!

I have given the texture paste thing a try by adding a doily effect to the background and added some Stickles to it.  Love the subtle effect.  I will be hunting and gathering more stencils now. (I know, I'm way behind the times here).

Copics: Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair - E18, E33, E35, E37, E39, E50 Shirt - RV00, R81, R83, R85, R89, BG75, YG93, T0, T2 Pants - BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78

Thank you for stopping in and taking a peek.  Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.  All of the products I've used are listed at the bottom of this post.  Have a great day and better tomorrows!

Celebrate the Christmas Season

Good Saturday Morning to You, My Crafty Friends!

I hope your December is going good so far.  Mine is off to a crazy busy start and I doubt it will calm down any time soon, as I'm sure a lot of you are in the same boat.  That being said, I will make this short and sweet.

Today kicks off another great challenge at the Tilda's Town Challenge Blog and our theme this week is Celebrate Christmas.  I hope you can come and join in on the fun for a chance to win a $10 gift voucher from the Tilda's Town Store.

Here I have Snowy Tilda from the 2012 A Christmas Story collection.  I have colored her with my Copics and pencils and used Distress Inks for highlighting.  As you can see I have, once again, used the MS Aspen Snowflake border punches.  I love snow, and since I don't get any in my neck of the woods, I use it on my cards when I can.  :)

Thank You so much for taking time from your busy schedule to visit.  It really means a lot to me.  All of the supplies I've used are listed at the bottom of this post.  Stay safe this holiday season!

♥ Laura C.

Joys Of The Season

Good Morning to You My Crafty Friends!

Today is the start of another fun challenge at the Tilda's Town Challenge Blog where our theme this week is Joys Of The Season.  That, right away, made me think of how much I loved the snow and watching the gorgeous array of birds that would come to my feeder in the wintertime.  I miss that so much.
Here is Christmas Kitchen Tilda from the latest Magnolia stamps collection, Waiting For Christmas.  I've colored her with Copic Markers and accented everything with Distress Inks.  I have listed all supplies I've used at the bottom of this post.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by to take a look.  I hope you have a great weekend and a most joyful Thanksgiving.

♥ Laura C.

Tilda's Town Challenge #129 Anything Goes

Hello Crafty Peeps!  I hope all is well on your side of the computer screen.  I know, it's been a month since my last post but things have been CRAZY for me around here and I'm having the hardest time getting my head on straight.  I got a new job that has me working a lot of hours and trying to focus on anything else is taking every last bit of energy I have and then some.  So I hope you will bear with me throughout this holiday season.

Here is my latest make for the Tilda's Town DT and our challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES.  Easy Peezy, right?  I hope you can join in the fun and share your latest creations with us.

These are the Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda and the Christmas Poinsettia stamps from the latest collection, Waiting For Christmas.  I so love all of the images out of this collection. 

This picture is in a little bit darker light.

For the background paper I used Sparkle Snowflake trio (also from the Waiting For Christmas collection) and Christmas Poinsettia images.

Here is one of the tags you see at the top of the card.  I used Tilda's Tag and Snowflake Border DooHickey's Dies.

Here I die cut two Primitive Hearts from an old Sizzix die and below, the sentiment is cut using Spellbinders Labels Eight.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I am honored that you would take the time as I know how busy we can all be.  More information on the supplies I used can be found at the bottom of this post.  Have a great day and better tomorrows.

♥ Laura C.

Advent Calendar - Tilda's Town Challenge #125

Happy Saturday My Friends!  I hope your having a fantastic weekend.  I am running very late today and I apologize for that.  Today starts another fun challenge over at the Tilda's Town Challenge and that is to "Use Your Christmas Stash". 

I was inspired to make an advent calendar after seeing so many talented and crafty ladies show off their gift box makes on the Noor Design Blog.  So this is my spin on that design and I was finally able to use this adorable Magnolia stamp.

This is Christmas Tilda With Puppy and she came with the #6 edition of 2012 Magnolia Ink Magazine.  She seems to be having a wonderful Christmas...
 
This design can either be used as a calendar or a Christmas count-down.  Speaking of which, there are only 74 days left until Christmas.  EEK! 

Copics - Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, R20 - Hair: E33, E35, E37, E50 - Dress: G94, BG99, W3 - Lace, Bows & Vest: R29, R56, R59, R89 - Stockings & Tag: E50, E51, W1, W3 - Shoes & Basket: E70, E74, E79 - Puppy: Y21, YR21, YR24, E99

Wintery Lantern

Good Friday To You My Crafty Friends!

Today I am posting a project that I made for myself which is something I haven't done in a long time.  You know how it goes when you're trying to keep up with with birthdays and holidays, a job, family time...
I guess you could call this a lantern as it has four sides and a candle in the middle.  I saw a similar thing on Pinterest HERE and my brain started spinning on how I could make one with stuff I already have.  This design makes me think of the scene from Frosty The Snowman when he and Sharon are in the greenhouse.  Crazy, right?  LOL!
I cut the four sides from white cardstock using my Cricut and the Ornamental Iron 2 cartridge and edged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  I then randomly stamped three Magnolia Snowflakes (from the latest release) onto craft plastic and heat embossed them with Ranger's Holographic Embossing Powder to create windows.
The Poinsettias, Snowflakes and Tags adorning the outside are from the Magnolia DooHickeys Club 2 collection and the fern is from the Magnolia DooHickeys Leaf & Swirl set.  The snowflakes and leaves are covered in holographic embossing powder.  The tags and poinsettia flowers are pink cardstock edged with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and the green leaves are white cardstock inked with Bundled Sage Distress Ink.
I painted a wooden napkin ring white to use as the base of the candle in order to lift it up to a good height.  The tea light is wrapped in Doodle Bug Dotty DP.  A touch of lace here, some pearls there and voila!

I made the mistake of putting the four sides together before embellishing.  Don't do that!  Especially if your panels are delicate.  There isn't a lot of structure to hold all of the flowers and leaves, and getting them glued into place while it's standing up is a nightmare.  :p

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look, I really appreciate you taking the time.  I hope you like my creation enough to leave a comment.  I just so wish the pictures did it justice because this is so shimmery and sparkly in person.

Have a fantastic day, and better tomorrows!
♥ Laura C.
