Fall Tilda

I am so happy that many challenge themes have been Fall lately! I love Fall and all the colors, scents and cool weather! At Just Magnolia the challenge is a sketch and Fall theme. At Magnolia-licious the colors are teal, orange and brown. I love these colors together and they also look very Fall-ish. I always enjoy using my Magnolia stamps.

Fall is in the Air

Everyone seems to be in a Fall mood lately and so am I! It has been much cooler here the past few days and I am loving it! The theme at Impression Obsession is Fall. I was able to use this wonderful scene of theirs (H1749) and I made a frame for it using a cuttlebug folder. Thanks for the fun challenge!

Three Fold Card Tutorial

I have been asked to do a tutorial on this three fold card I made last month. This is my FIRST ever tutorial so, I hope you will be able to follow it! Here goes!

Choose double sided paper for your card base -- 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". I used heavier paper by K&CO. The outside needs to be a lighter pattern so that you can see the stamped image when you stamp on it. Fold the 2 ends into the middle where they will touch.

Choose another piece of double sided paper that will compliment the base card and will be light enough to see a stamped image on. Cut it to 4 1/2" x 9 1/8" and use a border punch to punch one side of it. Then starting at the straight end, score this piece at 5 1/2 ".

Glue the long piece you just punched, to the back of your card base, leaving the top flap up. That will be folded over the front of the card.

Fold down flap over the front folds, decorate card with stamps and finish with embellishments!

I hope you enjoy making this card.

Pray and Remember

As we remember all of those that lost their lives on this day 10 years ago, let us pray for the families and those who survived. We are thankful for our brave men and women who are still fighting to keep our country free from terrorists. May all the heroes on that terrible day never be forgotten. God bless America!

No Cook Recipe

At House Mouse and Friends the challenge is to make a project and include a non-cooking recipe. I had this cute little House Mouse and instantly thought of cream cheese icing! Yum! I used white Liquid Aplique for the doughnut's icing and then ran my marker over it to make it pink. Then I used Star Dust Stickles over that to make the icing sparkle. This was a fun challenge.

Easel Card

At Top Tip Tuesday they are celebrating their one year birthday with a blog hop and a challenge! Happy Birthday to you! I made a birthday card to go along with the theme. Birthday cards are my favorite to make. I used this sweet Tilda with her ice cream cone. The patterned paper is Basic Grey from the Out of Print pad. My Tuesday Tip is this -- I only had white Liquid Aplique, but wanted Tilda eating "blueberry" ice cream. After I heated the Liquid Applique, I colored it by patting a marker over it and then applied clear Stickles glitter on it. I am entering this card into 3 challenges and you can click here to see them all.

Pretty in Pink

I had so much fun with challenge. At Magnolia-licious the theme is a picture of pink and white purses. I had this "purse" shaped card that was perfect for it! I used patterned paper to cover it and used a cuttlebug folder to add texture to the top of the purse. I am also entering this into the Magnolia Down Under challenge that asks for texture.
