Tilda waiting for Christmas!!

For the Papertake Challenge this week I used Dawny P’s template as the basis for this festive card. I had to adjust it slightly as the Tilda stamp combined with the present is quite tall, but I think it makes such a cute image. The papers are from Kate Pertiet, Framboise kit, as a download from Designer Digitals, the heart is a Magnolia stamp, and the ribbons are from Ribbon Oasis. Tilda was coloured with Pro Markers and touches of shimmer were added to the present bow with Twinkling H2o’s in Oyster and gold Stickles.
Hope you like it xx

A Blue Christmas - Take Two!!!

Well for the Papertake Challenge this week, I have created my second Christmas Card ever!! The challenge was to use a snow theme, so it was an opportunity to get out my gorgeous Whiff Of Joy stamp that I had not got round to using. The papers are from a download from Designer Digitals by Kate Pertiet, called Vintage Winter. The ribbon and snowflakes are from November's Raspberry Ribbons kit and the image was coloured with Pro Markers. Hope you like it xxx

Tilda's First Christmas!!!

Yes I know it’s a strange title, and it clearly is not the first Christmas for Tilda herself, but for me, this is the first Christmas card I have made ever!!!!!!!!! Well I say ‘ever’ perhaps I did make one or two for my Mom all those years ago, but I cannot remember. I am just sooooo loving this card making, I am obsessed by it. I know my productivity levels are low, but I enjoy the planning and creativity side of the computer imaging as much as putting the final card together.
I have been working this week on the adorable Magnolia stamp from the Christmas collection I decided to use with the Fir tree branch, again from the new collection. However the branch is quite large, so I stamped it, scanned it, and then reduced it to a size to fit well with Tilda. I also added the baubles to the tree to match the one she is holding in her hand. The papers are from a download called Fraise by Kate Pertiet from Designer Digitals, the ribbon is from the Raspberry Ribbons October kit. I coloured Tilda with Pro Markers, with a few touches from Sakura Stardust pens and a little glitter here and there. Dawny’s sketch created a lovely layout for the prepared image, but I did have to increase the card size to get everything in!!!!!!!!
Thank you for looking, your feedback is very inspiring and I love to hear your thoughts. xxx

Tilda on Bonfire Night

Well I burnt the midnight oil again last night, but enjoyed putting this card together. I 'surgically removed' Tilda's hand that was formerly holding the bird, and gave her a new mitten holding the sparkler. The ribbons are Raspberry Ribbons, and the background and sparkler were given a hint of sparkle to add the finished touch. Tilda was coloured with Pro Markers. Would love your comments.
