Totally Tilda Challenge - Midway reminder #56 - Dawn's Bingo grid

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

Hope your enjoying Autumn it's been quite mild and dry the past few days just how I like it ;0) It sure is flying by I am getting all excited about Christmas coming ! I just love making cards and boxes , have you started yet ??

It's halfway through Dawn's super bingo grid at the Totally Tilda Challenge !! 
It's so much fun so why not have a go if you haven't already !!

I have chosen Dry embossing, punches and Ribbon

I have stamped Tilda with Archival Coffee Ink and then coloured her with distress inks !!  mostly spun sugar and milled lavender !!I used the blending tool around her and added some swirls and spots with a gel pen and glitter pen .

I have made a joy fold card which I love to make !! There is a tutorial here if you fancy trying it out !!
They are also easy to adjust to whatever size you like ;0)

You lift the memory box die and the flap folds down to reveal a smaller card which you can lift up and write a sentiment ! I have started with beautiful papers from pion and added shabby and satin ribbons from 
Live & Love Crafts and my local Sewing shop. The Magnolia Doohickey die heart tag is topped with a mixture of beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts & Prima . I have used a craft concepts dot embossing folder on the dies to add some texture these are so reasonable , great value for money.

I made a tiny present and added some a 3mm strip with double sided tape and dipped in some German glass glitter ! Then I added some shabby ribbon and a prima flower with pink gem ! So cute and I have left it so it can open too.

Hope you can join us and take a peek at the Wonderful designs teams creations !! So much inspiration so pop on over to the Totally Tilda Challenge and join in the fun with a super prize from our Super Sponsor

Totally Tilda Challenge #55 Autumn Tilda

Hi Crafty Bloggers

How is your Sunday going ?? I have sheduled this post as I am working today . I have had fun crafting away though !! It's time for a super new Challenge at TOTALLY TILDA !

 The challenge theme is Autumn Tilda

There are so many wonderful creations to see on the blog ! There are new design Team members so please wish them all a warm welcome !!

 The super prize ;-

I have used tailor Tilda ! I just love colouring her, some stamps are just better to colour than others for some reason ?

She has been coloured with pencils. I used Tim Holtz tattered leaves which I coloured with distress inks and blending tool. I then used a cuttlebug embossing script folder and have sewn some veins onto the leaves. The papers are some old ones I found from K & Co .

I have used some gorgeous embellishments from Live & Love Crafts . The flowers are Prima . There is also a vintage locket , pearl pin. shabby ribbon & rose trim. The panel is some material I bought which I just frayed round the edges !!
The stamp Monster said the ribbons looked like bogies (snot) Will he ever grow up lol ;0)

I would like to enter my Autumn Tilda into the following wonderful  Challenges !

 ( she is making clothes for the fairies in the forrest lol
or as Susie suggested bloomers for the winter to keep her bum warm lol)

Thanks for visiting
