Tilda with Little Snowman

Hello Everyone

I don't make Halloween cards and the theme is everywhere at the moment. But I do have another Christmas card to show you. This little Tilda doesn't have a name yet. She is new, from the Autumn stamp club and so cute!  I masked her with an older background stamp of the winter church and painted the scene with  distress inks.
I am looking forward to the rest of the Christmas 2015 stamps, which should be just around the corner. 

This is an easel card.
 The background sparkles with Glamour Dust and Snow-Tex but the light is so unpredictable at this time of year and the camera hasn't picked it up. 
 All embellishments are from Live and Love Crafts including these gorgeous Maja "Vintage Frost" papers which I cut with Go Create dies, inked and stitched.
The leaves and the tag have been cut with Magnolia dies. The tag  opens for a message. There are some snowy pinecones in the flowers and a diamant√© snowflake in the bow. I added more Snow-Tex to the shabby stars. The lace has been hand gathered and the bottom bow is made of crinkled seam binding with an added heart. The large snowflake dies are from Joy Craft.
That's all for now friends.
Happy Crafting.

Hello Magnolia Lovers!

Today I am here with a reminder post for our current challenge over at the
I was in the garden this week, tidying up and became aware that the crows in the oak tree were watching me. And as I cleared the remaining sunflowers, I knew just how to make my Design Team card. I chose my Maja papers, matched my inks and cardstock and made this.
I coloured Tilda with my distress inks, painting onto watercolour paper. The birds and background die are Joy Craft dies. The two tags  and the leaves are Magnolia and I added lace and ribbons from my stash.
I hope you like my Autumn card and will join in our challenge.
