Hanglar & Stranglar

Finally a card! Haven't been to creative in the last week. Lost my mojo! This stamp is by Hanglar & Stangla. A friend shared an image of her stamp. I LOVE THESE STAMPS! I really like her outfit! The card is 6x6. DS paper is from my collection of winter/Christmas stash. I used my Treading Water border punch by Fiskars for the side. I think I made it a little to big, should of cut it a bit more. All CS is from my stash and I used my oval Nesties to cut her out, but then I used the biggest one so I had to dig out my coluzzle for the back oval. I embossed with my Swiss Dots folder. Flowers are Prima's. Ribbon in my stash. Its a good thing I have a good supply of "stash"!! I used my Prisma's to color.
Thanks for stopping by and hope everone has a great weekend!

Cherry Tilda

This card took me hours! Now I know why my other cards look so blah! LOL I've worked on this the last 3 or 4 days, off an on. A friend sent me Cherry Tilda and I have to say, she is my favorite Tilda out there. Isn't she cute! I can't tell you how many layers are on this card. With all the overlapping and bases and inserts, I lost track! I had all the card stock in my stash along with the ribbon. The flowers are from the Sept.kit from WishonaScrap. Perfect color! I used my Fiskars Treading Water punch of the edges. The cherries are also Magnolia stamps. I colored them and cut them out and attached them to the four ovals that were cut with my Nestibilities. I used an eyelet on the top of each one, using my crop-a-dile. Tilda and the cherries were colored with my Prisma's and googone. When I cut Tilda out I needed her to be more stable, her head sticking up over one of the pockets made her head wobbly and I thought maybe it would bend to easy. So after searching and trying to figure out what to use, I went for the old reliable popsicle stick. I broke it in 1/2, filed down the rough edges and attached it with my SooWang double sided tape from Diana Crick. I cannot remember where I found the pattern for the 4 pocket fold card. But when I find it, I will post it here. I want to give credit where credit is due.
Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone has a great weekend!

The Sept Kit worked perfect for my Gift Bag Set! I found the tutorial for the bag at Stampin'With Di. I've made one before but I enlarged this one to be 6x2x6. I used my MS border punch for the bottom and top borders. I cut out a circle and used my round flower punch by Fiskars to make the design in the handle. I then used my Coluzzle to cut out a center hole, cut it in half, and there was my handle! The ribbon is some I had in my stash to tie the bag shut. I added a tag to my bag and attached it with a little key chain I found! I made 3, 5.5x4.5 cards to go into the bag. Stamps are from Studio G and ribbon is from the stash bin! All CS is from the Sept kit. What fun paper to work with! It sure had my brain working!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you soon!!

I have to say, I love using these colors! The image is by MFT. I love this stamp set! All cs was in my stash and ribbon and buttons were bought last year at JoAnn's! I colored both Witches with my Prisma's and used my dew drop and a dauber for the background. I put a purple bow on her broom, thought that gave it just a little more feminin look! I used my embossing folders to emboss the border and the orange cs.
This was a fun and simple card to make.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!!
