Thank You Tilda Wall Hanging ~ Tilda with Fantasy Flowers

Good Morning Everyone!

How quickly has the time passed; it is the end of March already!
I have had a busy month in my personal life and also enjoyed our abnormally
mild weather here in Vancouver. Cherry blossoms are in full display
and the temperature reached 18C the other day. So I won't
complain about a few spring showers here and there :^)

On to my regular last Sunday of the month post, it is the
Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl Inspirational Blog.
The theme this week is ~ Not A Square.

For my DT creation, I made a heart-shaped wall hanging in spring colors
using Magnolia stamp image Tilda With Fantasy Flowers.


I have this stamp in my stash for a while, it is the first time to ink her up!
The image was colored with Distress Ink pads as usual.
I started coloring with Distress Inks a couple of years ago and have enjoyed
the beautiful soft tone immensely. I use my Copics and Prisma pencils
from time to time, but I always go back to watercoloring.


The heart-shaped base measures approximately 5"(W) x 8"(H).
I top stitched the DP and embossed the butterfly with shabby white frantage.

Designer paper ~ Pion Design Fairytale Spring Collection
Dies ~ Magnolia Doohickey, Marianne Design, and Nellies Choice
Sentiment ~ LOTV sentiment tags

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
32mm Corrissa ivory vintage lace, 8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace,
cream seam binding ribbon, natural hemp twine, 3mm & 6mm sticky tapes,
3mm & 5mm ivory s/a flatback pearl, 12mm flatback ivory flower pearl, 
K&G lilac rolled rose, WOC med/large pale pink lily,
white Gutermann top stitching thread.

Happy Day with Flower Friend Avery

Morning My Dear Friends!
Hope you are well wherever you are.

I have a new PND guest design creation to share with you today.
Since spring and Easter is just around the corner, I made an egg-shaped shadow box card
 using Flower Friend stamp from Paper Nest Dolls' Fairytale Collection.

The shadow box is about 6.5"(H) x 5"(W) x 1.5"(D). The front panel has an opening
which is joined with the back panel with an 1.5" accordion fold on each side.
 Avery is attached to the front panel with narrower accordion folds.
I am not able to show you the side views as I forgot to take
pictures before I sent the card off to Christine.


I have colored the image with Distress Ink pads as usual.


Designer paper ~ Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour and Vintage Spring Basic Collections.
Dies ~ Impression Obsessions, Magnolia, and Memory Box.
Sentiments ~ Retired Stampin'Up rub-ons.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
Vintage cream and vintage pink blossom flowers, 3mm white flatback s/a pearls,
WOC pale lemon pretty blossom, WOC baby pink tulip flowers,
white Gutermann top stitching thread, 3mm & 6mm sticky tapes.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope my shadow box card inspired you to create a spring/Easter themed card!
You can see more Paper Nest Dolls DT creations over at the PND Blog.

Have a great week and see you soon!

Hugs,
Katie

Tilda With Her Bunny ~ Another Fridge Post-It-Note Caddy

Happy March 1st Everyone!
Hope you are all doing well wherever you are.

Today, I have a new creation to share with you; another fridge post-it-note caddy.
I made one not too long ago here and really like the way it dresses up 
my kitchen. This one is for a friend's birthday coming up very soon.
Hope this adds a functional element in her kitchen too.

I recently accepted a DT invitation From Katie Tate, Scor-Pal
Design Team Coordinator and Social Media Director.
Scor-Pal products have always been my must-have items for crafting,
e.g. Scor-Pal scoring board, Scor-tape and Scor-mat.
I think designing for products I love is the best way to showcase 
my creativity and the versatility of the products.


This DT creation is designed for both Ribbon Girl and Scor-Pal.
The challenge themes are:
The Ribbon Girl March Card Challenge: Add flowers
The Ribbon Girl Blog

Scor-Pal March Challenge: Organizational and More Than One Score

The image is Tilda With Her Bunny from Magnolia Butterfly Dreams Collection.
I have colored it with Distress Ink pads as usual.


Designer Paper: Maja Design Nyhavn Collection
Dies/punch: Magnolia, Memory Box, Go Kreate, Martha Stewart

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
8mm Rebecca ivory vintage cluny lace, 3mm white s/a flatback pearls,
5mm white s/a flatback pearl, white Gutermann top stitching thread,
WOC lemon yellow and blue blossom flowers, Apple Blossom flower,
Forget-Me-Not fabric flowers, cream tiny Ric Rac ribbon.

This post-it-note caddy measures 9.5"(H)x 5"(W)x 0.75"(D).
I have borrowed the idea from my blog friend Alexandra, AKA Clay Guana.
She has a lovely fridge post-it-note holder tutorial here.
I have modified her dimension for my version in order to fit the topper.
 And of course, I used my Scor-Pal for precise scoring the caddy part.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
I am still working my way through a few spring birthday cards and some 
baby projects. Hopefully I get time to stop by your blogs soon.

Have a lovely day!

Hugs,
Katie
