Totally Tilda #2

Good morning folks, hope you are all well. Gosh where have the last 4 weeks gone? From today Totally Tilda are going fortnightly, wow we were overwhelmed with the amount of beautiful entries for Challenge #1 and hope you will all come back and play again with our new challenge.

We are very fortunate to have Bert Pickles AKA Fairy Prairie join our DT, welcome onboard sweetie - and also a warm welcome to Katie who is our Guest Designer this challenge.

We are also very lucky to be sponsored by the lovely Nikki from Bunny-Zoe Crafts and the Prize for one lucky person is;




Our challenge for this fortnight is to

Make a SHAPED CARD

But NO Squares OR Rectangles and NO Easel cards.

Susie gave the DT some of her new die cut cards on stands to play with and they are now available in her shop at Die cut Dreams and what a dream they are to work with.

I challenged myself to make use of my neglected punches and really enjoyed myself. They are just normal punches, not circular, and the best way I can describe their use is to cut a 5 or 7cm circle in centre - depends on pattern spread of the punch, it really is a case of trying for yourself. I then punch at 12, 6, 3 and 9 0´ clock then twice inbetween each of these.

I have coloured Tilda with copics and prismas and cut her out, ooh that stem did test my patience rofl. Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I don´t think you can go overboard with them - they are so addictive, memo to self ... place another order. Sentiment is from Stampin Up, cut with my nesties and layered onto another punched shape and that´s about it lol.
