Magnolia Tilda With Roses

Hello Friends and Crafters.  Today is another card selection from some older projects that I never got to post on my blog from when I was on the Dirty Dozen over at Splitcoast Stampers.  This sweet Magnolia Tilda is just perfect for a pretty Valentine's Day Card.
For this card, I have used some Spellbinders dies and punch around the page punches from Martha Steward.  The rolled roses were also made with Spellbinders.  One of my favorite things about this card are the pearl accents.  Thank you so much for joining me today for an oldie but goodie.  Until next time, happy crafting!

CottageCutz Wedding Shower Tag

 Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of CottageCutz dies.  Here in my neck of the woods, we are getting ready for a Wedding on "Pi" day!   There was a shower recently to honor the Bride and this is the tag I made for the gift I brought.  I made this with the idea that the Bride could use it as an embellishment in her Wedding Scrapbook.
 Yes, I do know what you are thinking.  I have had an influence on the Brides hobby by choice!!!  lol  This wedding is filled with lots of homemade hand crafted touches.  We have been working and still working for about a year.  This tag was made with the beautiful  Elegant Veil & Top Hat die from CottageCutz.  The Best Wishes Expression die was used on the little banner.
Hope you have enjoyed a little "Wedding Inspiration".  Be sure to check out the "Wedding Collection" of beautiful dies over at The Scrapping Cottage.  There are lots of beautiful dies to select from for all your decorating needs.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:

Sunflower & Burlap Tim Holtz Luminary

Hello friends and crafters and welcome to a "catch up" post of a project that I created back in September of 2014.  Just to let you know, I am pretty smitten with the Luminary Die from Tim Holtz.  This may be like the 5th configuration that I have created.
Several other complimenting dies were used to embellish this luminary.  I used the Spellbiners Sunflower Die, a Sizzix Daisy die was used for the smaller sunflowers you see on here.  The Sizzix Decorative Strip die called Autumn Gatherings are the little leaves and twigs you see.
The acorns came from Michael's and the little pumpkins and fall gourds are from the Dollar Tree.  They were perfect addition to this fall creation. 
As you can see in the back, the luminary is sitting on top of a Laughing Cow Cheese Box that is mounted on top of a painted candle holder.
I just loved this luminary.  Of course, I do not have it anymore.  I sent it to my BFF.  She loved it.  I am still playing with ideas in my head to use this die again for.  I know that I will get a lot of use out of it as I just love the results.  Thanks for stopping by today to let me share an older project with you.  Until next time.  Happy Crafting.

CottageCutz Woodland SnowLady

Greetings everyone.  Today I have a project share using the beautiful CottageCutz die called the Woodland Snowlady.  Let me just share with you that it actually did now here today in Southeast Georgia.  It wasn't anything that stuck to the ground-but it was snow flurries and I hadn't seen that type of weather here for about 12-14 years.  It was fun.
This card is rather large.  It measure 5 x 7 not counting the protruding edges.  The following CottageCutz dies were used in creating this:  Woodland Snowlady, Winter Pine Branch,, and Expressions "Let It Snow".    Isn't she just darling.  She has two cardinals in her wreath on top of her head.  Such a sweet die.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to view my creation.  Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.  These are the dies used:
