Tilda says Happy Holiday's

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by! The card I'm showing today is a custom order. I colored Tilda with distress inks. The sheet of music I used for the background is self-made. I used ivory cardstock distressed around the edges using Vintage Photo distress inks and stamped the sheet music using cocoa brown Memento ink. Then I took my paper distresser and went all around the edges to give an even more distressed look. Sorry for the very short posting today. My parents are arriving tonight from Germany ...YAY!!! and I still have lots of stuff to do :-) Card Recipe highlighted products are available at Roses on Paper Bastelbedarf Regnery both stores Stamps/Stempel: Magnolia - Tilda with presents / 2008 Sheet music - Blanche Siegmann Sentiment and Swirls - Inkadinkado Colored with/Coloriert mit: Tim Holtz Distress Inks Ink/Tinte: Memento - Tuxedo Black Paper/Papier: DP: Martha Stewart Other/Sonstiges: Martha Stewart Punches: Snowflake, Holly Leaf and Star, Ribbon/Band,

ROP Challenge meets Sketch Saturday!

Hello folks and welcome to our 21st Roses on Paper / Belles 'n Whistles challenge! Stitch it up ! is the theme our lovely Rosette chose this time. She wants to see stitches on your card or project! Hand sewn, machine sewn, stitched or faux stitching that's up to you! For all detailed information about the challenge, the rules, what stamps are eligible and what great price is sponosred by Summer this time, see the posting on our challenge blog right here I decided to make a Halloween treat bag this time. For my bag I used an ordinary brown paper lunch bag and decorated it. The handles were cut out using Spellbinders Nestabilities. And the Little Witch With Broom from Belles 'n Whistles Fall release was just the perfect image to use on this! I'm also entering this at this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge. When I saw the sketch I knew instantly it was the perfect sketch for my treat bag! :-) Oh yes one more thing :-) Veeery soon I'll be having a blog candy f

Thank you! & Cupcake Box

Hello everyone and Happy Weekend!!! First of all I like to say a big Thank you! to all of you who joined in on our Belles 'n Whistles Fall Release Blog Hop yesterday! It was such a joy and fun reading all your lovely comments and it was in deed a yummy blog hop, wasn't it? The stamps are available now at the Belles 'n Whistles store! And because these stamps are really addictive I already created another project with one of these yummy stamps which I would like to show to you ! This time I used Tania Baking , I know she was also one of your favorites yesterday! As usual lately I colored her with my Copics and distressed around the imge using Tim Holtz Distress Inks (I used spices marmalade). The swirl stamp is from Inkadinkado and the DP is My Minds Eye. I thought Tania would be the perfect image on a little cupcake box which I wanted to make for a long time now. The template I used is from The Cutting Cafe. It's so easy to use and you can make such a lovely box
