Happy Tilda !!!


I've had to have a day off work today as Edward is sick.  Not good for him of course, but I have been able to do a bit of extra crafting while he was asleep in the bed this morning!!!

Here's what I made:

A lovely little box using my Spellbinders Nesties Labels 8.  

It is the perfect size for a few choccies and would make a great little "Thank You" gift.

I've used Happy Tilda from Magnolia and coloured her with my Copic Markers.  I used a little Stickles Glitter Glue on her frilly bits. 

To make the matching heart border I used my Martha Stewart Valentine Lace Heart Border Punch on white paper and then coloured it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass.  I also used this to lightly ink around the image.

I made the two tags using stamps from the Stampin' Up Tiny Tags Stamp Set and punched them using the Stampin' Up Jewellery Tag Punch.

I'm entering this box into the following five challenges:

Hanna & Friends - Spellbinders Box
Quirky Crafts - Girly Girly
A Spoonful of Sugar - Floral Delights
Creative Card Crew - Thank You
Sir Stampalot - Punch It


Stamps: Magnolia "Happy Tilda"  and Stampin'Up "Tiny Tags"
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Card: From my stash
Tools: Nesties Labels 8 with Sizzix Big Shot.  Martha Stewart Valentine Lace Heart Border PunchStampin' Up Jewellery Tag Punch
Embellishments: Flowers from my stash.  Stickles Glitter Glue.  Adhesive gems from my stash
