Warm Wishes

Here is a little card to keep you going until my next DT project!  The adorable image, just perfect for a cold winter’s day, is by Whiff of Joy.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts, and the DP is HOTP.  I have coloured it with Promarkers as usual, and punched out the brown Bazzill card with Martha Stewart’s doiley punch.  The heart embellies, which look just like choccolate sweeties, were a magazine freebie.


Sneak Peek #2

Here is my second sneak peek.  This is another adorable little bear from the new release.  I used the new Label dies from Nestabilities to cut out the image and frame.  I’ve forgotten where the red ‘damask’ DP is from, but the newspaper print background paper, with ‘Love’ definitions, is by Creative Imaginations. The top and bottom borders are punched with Martha Stewart’s doiley punch, to give a romantic, lacy feel.  The sentiment is also by Elzybells, and the brads and jewellery spacers are from my stash.


 Here is a matching tag that I made with the same image and papers. 


I hope you are enjoying the sneak peeks from me and the rest of the Design Team.  Watch out for more tomorrow, and on Monday, when the new stamps will be available to buy from the Elzybells store.

Pink, Blue and Green…

A beautiful combinations of colours, as I’m sure you’ll agree, and this is the theme of the latest challenge over at Elzybells.  I used the very cute Flower Girl stamp for my image, which I coloured with my Promarkers. I paper pieced her dress with some of the ‘Blue Decorative Paisley’ paper by Bella Press, which I also used for the base of my card.  I punched a border for the bottom of the card, in matching blue cardstock, with my Martha Stewart doiley punch.  I also embossed this with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, for a little added texture, before attaching it to the card.  The flower/gem embellishments were magazine freebies.  As these were not all in the right colours, I coloured in the pink and the green with my Promarkers to match the DP.


Elzybells are launching some gorgeous new Valentines stamps very soon, so watch out for some exciting previews from the Design Team from the 9th onwards!

Happy New Beginnings

A Happy New Year to you all!  This is the start of a new year of challenges at Tilda and Friends, and from now on you may use any cute image, stamp or download, on your ATC.  We thought this would enable more of you to join in the fun with us.  The challenge this week is to use some of your newly acquired craft stash on your ATC.  I’m sure that some of you will have been lucky enough to receive lots of crafting goodies from Santa, so now is the time to put it all into creative use!

Unfortunately, the Hanglar & Stanglar image that I used isn’t part of my new stash, but an image kindly given to me by a friend.  The DP is new, though, from the Basic Grey ‘Offbeat’ 6″x6″ pad, and I punched it out with a lovely new Martha Stewart border punch, given to me for my birthday a little before Christmas.  Many of us use the  New Year to make new resolutions.  One of mine this year is to adopt a healthier lifestyle, with more exercise, and lots more fruit and veg in my diet, which was actually the thought behind my ATC this time.


How about making it one of your resolutions this year to join us in our challenges at Tilda and Friends?  We look forward to seeing you!

Elzybells Challenge #5

The latest challenge at Elzybells is to make a black and white card with a splash of another colour, and here is my interpretation, using the fabulous Funky Flowers set.   The flowers were coloured with pink Promarkers, but because of the poor quality of the light when photographing the card, they came out greyer than they actually are.  The daisy print background paper is from my stash, and I’m afraid that I have no idea where it came from.  I used cardstock in black, white and bright pink to matt and layer the stamped and coloured flowers.  I also used my Martha Stewart doily punch to edge the white card, which I think gives a retro look. 

Elzybells – Challenge Four

It’s time for another challenge from Elzybells! This time ‘Inchies’ is the theme, and as you can see I’ve used my inchies to decorate the side of my Christmas card. I used the Robins set, plus an Elzybells snowflake stamp, to decorate them. They are coloured with Promarkers, and edged with white embossing powder to give the effect of snow.  I sliced approximately 1.5 inches from the front of the card before attaching the DP (which is by Craft Creations).  I finished the shortened edge with Martha Stewart’s doiley punch, and added a strip of blue Bazzill Bling card to match the piece under the inchies. The main image is Elzybells Eskimo with Robin, coloured with Promarkers, with a chalked background. I layered this onto a scalloped circle, cut from a Nestabilities die with the Cuttlebug. I used the Elzybells Warm and Snuggly sentiment, matted onto blue Bazzill Bling, at the bottom, and added the snowflake flowers to embellish the card.
