Tilda in Edwins Village

I started off stamping up Edwins Village which was a recent purchase & coloured with Promarkers. I then used a Nestie to cut out the scalloped square to make a frame around the village scene & edged it with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. The ribbon is from stash & can you see the Happy Birthday on the top one? Tilda is Shopping Tilda & is again coloured with Promarkers.
I added a Cuttlebug border which has been distressed using Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, as has the Magnolia tag die. The sentiment is by Cuddly Buddly. Flowers & pearls also from stash.
All flowers from stash, mostly part of the lorry load that my friend brought back from

Dream Valley Animals

The next challenge over at Dream Valley is Animal, so we want to see your creations using animals, domesticated or otherwise. This week is sponsored by Mel herself who is putting together a surprise package.
On my card I have used papers from Bo Bunny Zoology collection & created a frame, underneath is a silhouette cut on my Craft Robo from a CD I bought years ago (2007) called Just Cutters. I love this scene as elephants are simply my favourite animal. I added Elephant from Pets & Animals Collection 2009 & coloured him with Promarkers. The sentiment is Magnolia Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012.
You can see the adorable little elephant charm added to the sentiment.
This corner is also made by myself. I used a template over at UK Scrappers & coloured it with a Promarker & covered it with Glossy Accents. Flowers from stash.

Tilda with Hellebores

Another Tilda I am afraid. I just love these images & between me & my 2 friends who also love them, we are building up quite a collection.
On Thursday, 2 of us went to Sir Stamp A Lot & once again, did not come out empty handed. Here's one of our new purchases Tilda with Hellebores from Sweet Christmas 2011 collection. Coloured with Promarkers. BP used are Crafty Individuals Book 1 & a Magnolia paper called Something Old. I also used Papermania Portobello Road. All edges are distressed.
I bought a Marianne Designs birdtable & picket fence, don't you think that is so cute? I have been after the Magnolia fence die for ages, but this one was much cheaper. I distressed it with Pumice Stone distress ink.
Ribbon from stash & gauze from my First Aid kit (thanks Rebekah for the idea). The flourish is a Sissix die run through the Cuttlebug.
Lastly flowers from my recently grown

Its a Jungle out there!

I have been collecting Magnolia stamps for a while now & when I see a bargain, I snap it up, so I have a collection of the animals now, as they are part of the Pet & Animals Collection 2009.
I started off with a side stepper card. I used Jungle Edwin & Colibri on the upright. Both coloured with Promarkers & highlighted with Prismas. I made my own grass for Edwin to stand in & a MS punch to make the jungle vine.
On the back step is Elephant, once again coloured with Promarkers. He is placed in front of a hill (sort of lol) that I cut out & I made more grass & placed a few little flowers behind it.
Once again, I added another jungle vine.
The next step has Lion, coloured with Promarkers & highlighted with Prismas. I cut out a rock & coloured it, again placing some hand made grass & flowers on top.
Finally in front is Jungle Leaves, & I added several flowers.
Sentiment is Papermania.

Happy Spring Tilda

This is such a girlie card!
Papers from stash & are edged with chalk. I mounted Happy Spring Tilda (Butterfly Dreams) onto a Nestie and used another Nestie in white, but ran it through the Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots folder & stuck that behind. It almost makes a circle.
Image is coloured with Promarkers & Prisma pencils. A friend lent me her SU punch to make the flags & I threaded them onto embroidery thread & used an old Gel Pen to write the letters. I let the thread hang on the card & stuck it at the bottom of the card.
Used from lace from stash & added an organza ribbon & a few dew drops.
I added quite a few of my new flowers to complete the card. Very, very girly!

So thats Christmas & New Year over for another year & we welcome in 2012. Mind you so far I have had 2 people pass away so not a great start to the year.

Its time for another Dream Valley Challenge & its an Anything Goes, so plenty of scope to get creating.
We are sponsored by One Stop Cards this time.
I needed a Thank You card, so thats my DT entry this time. I made a Criss Cross card using my new Hougie Board that Santa gave me for Christmas. The papers are K & Co Hopscotch & I covered all corners & edges with Broken China Distress Ink.
A Magnolia die was used to make a frilly edge & again distressed with Broken China. Ribbon from stash as are the flowers.
The image was coloured with Promarkers & is Tilda with lace jeans from the Butterfly Dreams collection 2011.
The inside has the same papers & Distress Ink with a Magnolia Tag slipped inside. The sentiment is a Stamping Up stamp. Attached ribbon to the tag with a brad from stash.
