Creative Inspirations - Buttons & Bows!

Good Morning!
I have something a bit different for you today as I don't have a card to share with you all ... I have a Bookmark! This weeks Challenge at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS is Buttons & Bows!
A nice & easy Challenge for you all.

We are joined by a New Sponsor this week and were asked to use some of their Digi Images on our DT Work. I decided to go for Puppy Paws due to us getting a Puppy last month which gave me the idea to make a Dog-Themed Bookmark!

This fits the Challenges at:

WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - LET'S GET SENTIMENTAL
STAMP SOMETHING - CUTE SOMETHINGS
SIMON SAYS STAMP - ANIMAL ANTICS


I wanted to find a Sentiment that would go with the Dog Theme so after hunting on the Internet I eventually found this one.

Sentiment from the Internet
Basic Grey Papers
Twine from Hobbycraft
Buttons & Dew Drops from Stash

Good Morning!
It's Tuesday so that means I have a rather long post for you compared to normal so get ready for lots of pictures!

First off our new Challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar is Valentines!
I don't really make Valentine's cards as each year I never have anybody to send them too :( So I have a little pile of Valentine's cards I have had to make for DT Projects over the past couple of years! lol

This card fits the Challenges at:

STAMP SOMETHING - CUTE SOMETHINGS
(Gems, Glitter & Ribbon)
WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - LET'S GET SENTIMENTAL

************************************************


My next card is for our new Challenge over at EVERYBODY ART which is My Favourite Things! When I was about to make this card I was considering buying the new Window Stamp from the latest Magnolia Collection but then I decided it would be a bit pointless seeing I already have the Fairytale Window Stamp, although I have to admit it isn't as pretty! lol

This card fits the Challenges at:

STAMP SOMETHING - CUTE SOMETHINGS
(Gems, Glitter & Ribbon)
WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - LET'S GET SENTIMENTAL

A Tilda Calendar!

Good Morning!
I had been meaning to make a calendar for 2011 like I normally do each year but I just couldn't find the energy to do a page each this time so I had a little think and came up with an alternative! I thought of making an Easel Card style Calendar but using various Tilda's to represent different occasions throughout the year so it didn't look too plain.

In the end I came up with these 4 Tilda's and masked them together (This took me a little while to figure out how to place each character lol)

* Tilda carrying Birthday Cake - My Birthday
* Witch Tilda sitting with Broom - Halloween
* Star Tilda - Christmas
* Tilda with Hearts - Valentines

I do hope you like this as it took me quite a while and almost ended up in the bin when I dropped something on the image when the gloss was drying ... grrrr !!!

My calendar fits in the Challenges at:

WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - LET'S GET SENTIMENTAL
JUST MAGNOLIA & HANGLAR - MY FAVOURITE THINGS
(Everything I have used is my favourite! lol)
STAMP SOMETHING - ANYTHING GOES
TOP TIP TUESDAY - ALL SENTIMENTAL
SIMON SAYS STAMP - BINGO!
(I chose Gems, Glitter/Glimmer & Ribbon)

The photographs again don't do it justice ... I don't know what is wrong with me recently but I am really struggling to take decent photographs :(





RECIPE:
Various Magnolia Tilda Stamps
Magnolia Paper
Cuttlebug 'Snow' Embossing Folder
Various Ribbons
Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
Shimmer Spray
Twinklets
Calendar Tab by Anita's
Heart Doily
Vanilla Dew Drips

I hope you have enjoyed looking and all comments I receive really are appreciated, I love reading your thoughts on my work :)
Happy Crafting!

For some reason I just couldn't get the photography right on this card so if you think it looks like it's on a bit of a tilt it probably is! lol
I have also used one of my new Tilda's again and I have to admit she is one of my all-time favourites, she's gorgeous!


I have only put twinklets on the centre flower this time and Shimmer Spray on the rest, I really do wish it'd show in photographs so you could see how pretty it looks.



Lastly I thought I would add a photograph of the inside as I haven't done this for quite a while.

Sentiment from Happy Daze
Nesties
Magnolia Papers
Various Cardstock
