Tilda with Lace Pants

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you this time is ‘S is for Shabby Chic’.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Live & Love Crafts.

For my card today I’ve use the very cute ‘Tilda with Lace Pants’ from the Animal of the Year Collection by Magnolia.


I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are as follows: Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20 & R30; Hair – E44, E42, E41; Clothes RV95, RV93, RV91, BG93, BG90; Boots – W7, W5, W3, W1, W00.

The papers I’ve used are by Maja Designs. This print is Vintage Summer Basics 1922. These papers and the gorgeous lace I have used are both available at Live & Love Crafts.

I have added two tags to my card. The one on the right is the ‘So Wrapped Tilda Lace’ and the one on the left is ‘Bloomy Tag’ which are both Magnolia Doohickey dies.

Here’s another photo showing the tags.


My card shape is a Go Kreate die. My flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts and Kort & Godt. I’ve added a little Shabby White Frantage around my image and a few pearls on the layer behind.

Here’s a closer look at the image.

Cool Student

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Back to School’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

The Paper Shelter have just released a new image that was perfect for this challenge so I just had to use it. It’s called Cool Student.

I’ve used the Pre-coloured image for my card.


I sure hope this says ‘Back to School’ as it’s not a big thing here in Australia so I’ve never made a card for this theme before.

My main card and layers have been cut using the Go Kreate XXL Square Frames Frilly #2 die. My main image has been printed onto Cryogen White card, cut out and layered using Stampin’ Up Oval Framelits. The same with my sentiment. I’ve added pearls to my paper layers and some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here’s a close up of the image.


Stamps: Cool Student (The Paper Shelter), Feels Good (Stampin’ Up)
