Warm Up With Cocoa Tilda

Hello everyone how are you all?
Today I have a Christmas card for you, yes another one. In all honesty I made this one before the one I showed you last week soon as I got the new Magnolia collection I coloured up 2 straight away.....they were London Tilda & Cocoa favourites!!
Here is Cocoa Tilda looking warm & cosy ;-)
I have also used the fabulous Christmas Cottage die set.....I soooooooo love this cottage. Of course the tree dies come with it which I have covered with glitter.....they really do look so sparkly in real life!!

I have also added the oh so gorgeous Magnolia Snow Flurry Background from the latest Magnolia Stamp & Cutz collection.....this is a fabulous snowflake & I think it will be used lots ;-)

Added some gorgeous lace from Tracy's store as she has such a pretty collection. Also added mini kraft bag to add 2 tags. I have added silver bells to one & a charm to the other tag, all tied in brown vax cord. The Winter text die is an older Joy Crafts die but still one of my faves!!

So as I said this is Cocoa Tilda with Snowflurries from the latest Stamp & Cutz collection, although I didnt add her snowflurries. I also used the Fence die from the Cosy Fox & Fence set, I love this little fence. I cut it out twice & popped onto foam pads to sit in front of the cottage.
Tilda was of course coloured in distress ink refills & markers....I will try remember the colours...
Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose - Skin
Fired Brick, Spun Sugar - Cheeks
Antique Linen, Walnut Stain - Hair
Pumice Stone, Fired Brick - Jumper, Ear Muffs, Skates & Cup
Stormy Sky - Jeans (I think)  

The papers I've used are the new Maja Design 'I Wish'collection........oh my oh my I love & I mean LOVE this collection.....ok I know I say it about every collection but seriously this collection is da bomb lol.
The reindeer is from Creative Expressions 'Deer Family' which I asked Tracy to order for me. Tracy really is awesome for sourcing & getting products for you, so dont hesitate is asking her if she can get something.......she really does do her best & I'm sure you will agree is awesome at it ;-)
I kept flowers to just one gorgeous one, added berries & a scrapiniec snowflake, the leaves are a Magnolia mistletoe die from my stash.

Well thats it from me but why not pop on over to see the fabulous goodies Tracy has been adding & if you havent seen the latest Magnolia collection & the latest Maja Design collection.......then its ok as we hear a few may have been abducted by aliens lately ;-) As you were abducted why not pop on over to here & here to look at well as ALL the other uber gorgeous goodies Tracy stocks :-)

Tatty bye & thanks for stopping by lovelies
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

If something scares you...

then it's definitely not this card :-). Hello and good morning everyone! As promised I am showing you today a card I made with the gorgeous Pion Design 'The Witching Hour' paper collection. I so love this collection as you cannot only make Halloween projects with it, but also for other occasions, as I showed you last week. 

I had so much fun creating this card with this cute Halloween themed image also from the Pion Design 'The Witching Hour' paper collection. And it's definitely everything else than scaring, don't you think so?

 A close up of the image...

 I also used some paper straws as embellishments...

Sentiment and flowers...

This beautiful owl is a perfect addition... I added some copper glitter into her eyes to make her look more lively.

Thank you so much for looking. I wish you a happy day now.
Hugs, Karina

Crafteezee Collection - YULETIDE

Hello everyone.  I am here today with some more inspiration using the lovely Crafteezee Collection.

First of all, for those who do not know, these are Limited Edition.  This month is YULETIDE.  It is a collection assembled by Tracy, who tries to source ALL NEW items each month, focusing on her favourite things.  If there are any left over these go into the store, and if not just those that purchase the kit will receive. Each month is a different theme and the next one will be Art Deco.   Don't miss out, hop on over HERE to order your kit.

So, onto the card I made using the Crafteezee Collection:

I started off with the two of the papers from the Collection which are Greetings from the North Pole 6 x 6 Midwinter Night

I used some of my favourite dies again from Noor Design Uk shop.  The JOY Lattice Border die is peeping through at each side and is just to say visible curving round the right hand side of the image.
The JOY French Lily Border die is positioned at the top.

In addition we see the gorgeous lace Gwendoline which can be found in the shop.   There a a fabulous selection of other laces and trims to be found in the appropriate section of  Noor Designs UK  shop including the fabulous Vintage Seam Binding which I have used for the bows.

Again I have used the lovely Pleated Ruffle Tulle Trim.  I just cannot stop using this and am tending to reach for it time and time again!

The flowers used are  Lily Mixed PinkEnglish Roses  from Noor Design Uk shop and Glass Strawberries provided in the Crafteezee Collection,

 The Mini bark stars can be seen dotted around the floral display.   Again these were in the Crafteezee Collection.

I am loving using this fabulous Collection!

Thanks for stopping by and happy Crafting
