COLD OUTSIDE TILDA - TILDAS TOWN DT

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE

How are your preparations going for Christmas?
I went into London last evening and it seemed the whole world was celebrating. The atmosphere was amazing. I have never seen so many happy folk dressed up in Santa costumes. Regents Street was crammed with sight seers and the traffic was in gridlock.

 The theme of this week's challenge at
 Tilda's Town is CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS.

"Tilda's Town is a most magical shop specializing in Magnolia Stamps & Cutting dies. We carry over 1,400 stamps in stock at all times & over 4,000 dies from all your favorite brands. We offer very competitive shipping rates and we ship worldwide. Visit us at Tilda's Town and live the magic."

Here is my card.


 I have used little Cold Outside Tilda. 
She is my favourite stamp from the new Magnolia collection. I have used my Copic pens to colour this time, instead of inks.
 Of course there has to be copious amounts of sparkle added, that's compulsory for every Christmas card I make.

The borders are cut with a DoHickey die called Heart  Lace. The Christmas trees were Dees Delightful dies and the pretty center piece was made with a new Joycraft die from Noor Design. I LOVE IT and need to buy more in 2015.

My card of choice for both layering and die cutting is always Bazzill basic. Other embellishments are crystal bead string around the image, a glittered mulberry flower with leaves and berries and beads and berries on the snowy trees.

I hope you will join in our challenge this week.
I look forward to visiting your blogs.

Sending Warm Christmasy Hugs

CHRISTMAS CANDLE TILDA for TILDA'S TOWN

Hello from a very wet, murky London.
 I have just come back from a holiday in The Canary Islands where the temperature hit 30 degrees. On arrival in England, it was hard to believe that Christmas was just a few weeks away.

It's time for a wonderful new challenge at TILDA'S TOWN.
This week we would like you to make us a card or project with the theme
JOYS OF THE SEASON. As usual, the prize is a $10 Gift Certificate to

I used one of my new stamps for my card. I really love this new Magnolia collection and a couple of the stamps can be used all year round


This is CHRISTMAS CANDLE TILDA from the Waiting for Christmas collection.
I coloured Tilda with Distress Re-Inkers onto watercolour paper, adding Glamour Dust to her hat and base. 
The papers are also from Magnolia, cut with a Go-kreate die. Other additions are lace and pearls, a doily, a Maja stamp, flowers, leaves and glass on wire.
