Hi everyone! Hope you have had a great weekend so far.

Since it's the last Sunday of the month, the Magnolia team at
The Ribbon Girl Blog is hosting this week's challenge.
The theme is ~ Spots and Dots.

For my DT card, I used Scooter Tilda which I bought
last year but didn't get around to color her till now, lol.


I water colored Tilda with Distress Ink pads. I added Aged Ivory 
Frantage around the image and top stitched all paper edges.


I used the LO from CLP's October sketch.



DPs are Maja Design Walking in the Forest Collection.
Dies are Magnolia, Memory Box, and Go Kreate.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
20mm Angelica ivory tulle lace, dusky blue button twine,
5mm flat ivory bead string, peach seam binding ribbon,
WOC 10mm dusky blue rose, 20mm peach/autumn gold rose,
K&G cream chrysanthemum, Gutermann white top stitching thread.

Dracula Edwin Top Hat Lantern - Bling at Tilda's Town

Happy Friday Everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at Tilda's Town Challenge.
This week's theme is an easy one ~ Bling.

Since my son is now a little too old to go trick-or-treat,
I made a top hat lantern/treat box for him instead.

The following stamps and dies I used are available at Tilda's Town:

I colored Dracula Edwin and Owl with Distress Ink pads.



I die cut spiderwebs and boarder using glitter paper and added some
clear rhinestones here and there for additional sparkles.

The crow is part of the Memory Box DP.
I cut around it to make it part of the lantern aperture.
The opening is at the top. I put a green battery-operated tea-light
in the lantern to give it a spookier feeling :^).


When I made a top hat lantern/treat box in September, here,
I promised to provide a template later.
Now I have added the templates on my Tutorial page.
Feel free to use them and make a top hat lantern for yourself.

Sweet Baby ~ Xtra Special at ABC Challenges

Morning Everyone!
Hope you all had a great weekend.

I have a new DT card to share with you today.
When I guest designed at ABC Challenge last month,
Nikki invited me to join the Designer Team. I was happy to accept
the offer as I always enjoy their challenges.

Today is the 15th of October which means we have a brand new challenge.
The theme is X for Extra Special, sponsored by The Paper Shelter.

For my DT creation, I made a tag card using Sweet Dreams digi image.
I chose this image as it is so adorable and a baby card always comes in handy.


The image was printed on 90lb water color paper and colored with Distress Ink pads.
I cut out the image using Spellbinder Standard Circle dies.

I created my own templates for the tag. 
If you like a copy of the templates, just leave me a comment or e-mail me.
Other dies used are Spellbinders, Memory Box and Stampin'Up.
Sentiment and DP are also Stampin'Up.


The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
13mm Olivia white cluny lace, 15mm Elizabeth white cluny lace,
30mm Zig Zag white cotton lace, dusky blue button twine,
blue tiny Ric Rac lace, white vintage seam binding ribbon,

I have joined the fabulous Tilda's Town Challenges design team.
It is like a dream comes true!

The challenge theme for this week is Stitching, one of my favorites :^)

A few weeks ago, my craft friend Alexandra, suggested we do a card swap.
Of course I said Yes right away. I love her creations, her attention
to details is truly amazing. You can visit her blog at Clay Guana.

I made a fan card with Tilda for Alexandra as requested.
I did a fair bit of top stitching on this fan card.


The image I used is Forget-Me-Not Tilda, available at Tilda's Town.
I colored her with Distress Ink pads and frantaged lightly around the edge.



Here is the back side of the card. I made a little pocket for a couple of tags.


Dies: Spellbinders, Momory Box and Magnolia.
DPs: Maja Design Sophiero Collection.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace, Gutterman white top stitching thread,
10mm ivory open rose, 10mm pale pink open rose.


Here's the outside and inside view of the card when it's open.
