Diecuts and punches..............


I couldn't resist using Tilda in this creation. I have delicately coloured her in hues of blue and lilac. I have used a plain oval diecut and then a lilac oval scalloped diecut and then placed under them two lacy doilies and a plain purple backing paper which i have used a PATP using a MS punch. The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

' Happy Birthday'


I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
1. Papercrafting Journey - Anything Made with paper goes
2. Bling It On - Birthday and shades of lilac
3. Totally Tilda - Die Cuts and Punches
4. Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Punches


-------------------------------------------------------------------------



I love this image of Tilda, very 'April Showers'. yes i know we are in March lol.........I have layered Tilda onto an embossed square which i have enhanced using Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink to highlight the dry embossing then layered that on to a square doily. I have then created an easy Easel Card. The BG papers are Forever Friends Pink Parfait and the gorgeous ribbon is from Giselle Graham.


I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
1. Shelley's Images - seeing spots
2. Emerald Fairie Garden - Embossing wet/dry
3. Just Magnolia - Anything Goes



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Now i thought i would be a little different in creating a papercraft project that was using the colour green for St. Patricks Day. I have recycled a little notebook and added this gorgeous textured paper and little rhinestones....the tag is from K&Co and i have added this lovely stamped, coloured and cut out image along with some lace, flowers, ribbon and pearl string beads all have been recycled from other projects.


I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
1. Sassy Studio Designs - Seeing Lots of Green
2. 4 Crafty Chicks - Anything But A Card
3. The Craft Garden - Photo Inspiration
4. Scrap It Girl - Go Green and recycle
