Stamptacular Sunday - Winter Bliss

This week is really fun challenge at Stamptacular Sunday. Create a card or project that has a WINTER SCENE!  You can use a single stamp that is a winter scene BUT...if you create a winter scene all on your own your name will entered into our drawing THREE times!  Woohoo!  I can't wait to see your creations.  Our awesome sponsor this week is Saturated Canary.  The winner receives their choice of two digis.  Her stamps are so adorable. 

I tried a few zillion (only a slight exaggeration!) winter scenes for this challenge.  I just couldn't find one that I was happy with.  I finally decided to try this idea I have had saved on my Pinterest board.  There a few cute variations.  One with epsom salts, a mason jar and a single votive candle and the other used a bottle brush tree instead of the candle.  I loved the simplicity and elegance.  I thought Tilda with Cross Stitch Heart would do well in this wintry scene.  I used acrylic instead of the jar lid to let in a lot of light.

Stamptacular Sunday - For The Love of Tilda

Hi everyone!  This week's challenge at Stamptacular Sunday is to create a card or project using a Tilda stamp from Magnolia.  Our lovely sponsors this week are Whimsy Stamps ($15 gift certificate!) and a surprise from Bunny Zoe's Crafts!! Please take a peek at their websites.  All this fun wouldn't be possible without them.  I am looking forward to your awesome creations. 

 I have chosen two Tilda's for this challenge.  Sweet Tilda is up first.  She is a classic, isn't she? This little Tilda went through quite a transformation.  I colored her and wasn't satisfied at all.  I wondered what I could do to save her?  Paper piece?  No, that didn't work.  So I recolored her hair and added the blue to her dress.  I think she turned out all right.

I used Sweetie Tilda for the inside.
