Happy Birthday Tilda





Can you believe it is the middle of November? I have heard of lots of snow and cold weather this week. I am happy to be in Florida. Yes, it is going to get down in 30's next week but I don't think I will be seeing any of that white stuff.

I made this sweet Tilda card for a special friends birthday next week. I used My Precious Daughter paper from Pion - so gorgeous. I used Tilda with a present and colored her with Copic Markers R0000, R00, R01, R20, E70, E71, E74, G91, G93, W0, W01. I added flowers, metal embellishment, ribbon, trim bling and some Shabby Pink Frantage. I used Spellbinder dies, Magnolia Doo Hickey Butter Fly Die and Stamp'n Up Tag Punch.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Star of the Day

Happy Wednesday,

I hope everyone is having a great week! I am really loving this Florida weather. It is hard to believe it is almost the middle of November. I hope you will join us over at Midweek Magnolia's challenge "Flourishes".

I have decided to decorate my sitting room for Christmas shabby chic - ocean theme.  My son and his wife have been buying me a sea theme ornament for Christmas and I found a white flocked twig Christmas tree that would be perfect.

I found this star shaped box at Hobby Lobby and wasn't quite sure what I would created. Then I found these beautiful large starfish. Thus decided this would be perfect for my ocean theme.  Below I have given the steps I used to create my box.


A great gift box.

The tag can also be used as an ornament

Another view of the box.

I painted the box with Gesso, applied Tim Holtz tissue paper with Modge Podge. Once this was dry I sponged the edges of the star with Prima Bloom Spray - Gold Foil, Pressed Petal and Glistening Waves then I glued the floral trim. The box cover, tag, bottom of the box were sprayed with the Gold Foil spray. The starfish was sprayed with Glistening Waves. I used Magnolia Doohickey poinsettia dies and Cherry Lynn large and small flourish. The stamp is Tilda with Candle from Magnolia. I colored her with Copic Markers, used some shabby white frantage to give her a little sparkle and on her flower band I used Perfect Pearls for the center of the flower. I used Prima wooden embellishments and painted them Viva Decor Gold paint. To complete my design I added pearl bling, netting, tulle, raffia.

Witch Tilda

It's Saturday and another gorgeous day in Florida. I can't believe it is November 1st. So excited I get to spend the weekend with both of my boys. My youngest from Idaho is visiting us this week. Love it.

You will find my project below. And please join us over at Magnolia Forever's Challenge "Halloween".

I used Witch Tilda on my project. I used a chipboard pumpkin and covered it with paper. Next I used embossing paste with Tim Holtz's Shattered stencil. To give some color I used Prima sprays gold and tattered leather. I paper pieced Tilda and the hat. I chose some Graphic 45 Paper, flowers, cheese cloth, Memory Box Spider Web die, tulle, and misc. embellishments.

Beautiful in Blue

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone is having a great week! I can say all this sunshine is so awesome; I absolutely love it. I will show a sneak preview of my new room. The unveiling will be around November 20th once my shutters are installed. The photos are below.

The winner of my candy is Angel Whispers! Congratulations please contact me with your mailing address.

Now on to my card for our Midweek Magnolia's challenge glitter/lace/pearls. I chose Tilda in the Garden - how sweet is she? I colored her with Copic Markers. The dies I chose for my design were Go Create, La La Land Heart Banner, Magnolia Doo Hickey Heart Tag, Cherry Lynn Flourish and Butterfly dies. The floral paper is from Magnolia's Animal Collection, stripped blue paper is from Pion and the rest is from my stash. To embellish my card I used vintage white frantage, flower, pearls, tulle, lace and I inked the edges of the paper with pale blue Prima chalk ink.
