Winter Tilda's - Stamp and Create product spotlights

This is my first for you today.  This is Tilda with snow heart from last years Sweet Christmas Dreams collection from Magnolia. She has been coloured in copics and polychromo's. I have used Winter wishes papers from Echo Park, love the blues and purples in the pad.  I have created the snow and fur effect on the image by using liquid applique, the snowflake charm and stickles finish the effect off. The rick rack and the glittering ribbons are stash.

Lola Lollipop - Kraftin Kimmie

Hello, I have another of the wonderful Kraftin Kimmie stamps to show you today. It is a tie for me between these and Tilda's as to which I love the most.

Lola lollipop is coloured in copics and mounted onto prima papers. The die is the one I used on tuesday and I have added a simple prima flower to it. I actually love this effect with a spacer and a brad, which I used to use a lot before the mulberry flowers became so popular. A little bit of lace from the ribbon girl and the butterfly from Hobby House finish it off.

Artemis - Kraftin Kimmie

Good morning, raining here, had a lovely day at the NEC on saturday with Heather, Kim and Jo (and the lovely Mollie), saw Dawny P, but she didn't recognise me lol! Had a nice chat with Jill at Hobby House and Sonia too.

Todays card is my Stamp and Create Spotlight Card. I have used Artemis from the Kraftin Kimmie Goddess range. The papers are an old Basic Grey Pad called Cappella, which I have bravely sewed using my new machine. The lace is of course cluny and I have added some brown velvet ribbon on there too. The swirl is a new die I have got from spellbinders called fantastic flourish two. The pearls are Kaisercraft pink and basic grey green, and I have added stickles to the flowers and a leaf charm.

For once I am going to enter this card in a few challenges, not done this for ages as my cards have not seemed to meet the challenges.
