Welcome to Sandy's Crafty Creations and my first ever post (a wee bit scary).

I found to my amazement last week that the Magnolia Down Under DT were looking for 2 new members, it has been my wish to join a Magnolia Design Team from when I bought my first Magnolia INK magazine last year, like so many I just fell in love with Tilda.

I thought this was just the prompt I needed to make a Blog, so here we are with my first Creation,

                                                    "Princess Tilda with Carriage"

                           The inside is simple with blank space for a personal message or sentiment.

Stamps: Magnolia "Welcome to my Home" (Sweet Crazy Love) Magnolia Princess Tilda, Mini Tilda
Cardstock: Magnolia, Arches Watercolour 
Dies: Magnolia Doohickeys, Spellbinders, Marianne Design, Martha Stewart
Gems: Magnolia Knick Knackery's Vintage Diamonds
Flowers: Kaisercraft Mini paper Blooms "Fairy Floss"
Other: Ranger "Star Dust" Stickles, Lace, Muslin, Sparkle net, Versa Color "Sky blue", silver jump rings

Colouring Tilda,
Tim Holtz Distress Marker's
Skin - Tattered rose, Victorian Velvet, Aged Mahogany
Hair - Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain
Apparel - Dusty Concord, Pumice Stone 

My card features Princess Tilda from the Fairy Tale collection (she is just gorgeous) I coloured her with Tim Holtz Distress Markers (my first attempt with them) so pleased with my effort, she has Stickles on her tiara, gloves and petticoat. 
I used the corner of "Welcome to my home" Magnolia stamp for the cloud effect on the spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Grand Labels 1 die.   
The Carriage I made with Spellbinders "Standard Circles Large" for the body of the carriage, Spellbinders "Floral Flourishes" for it to sit on, with Spellbinders "Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents"
for the wheel supports. 

I am entering this card in the following challenge

Bye for now,

  1. Very lovely card, Sandy. You obviously have different sramps and tools, and this card is definitely not your first ;) how come that you didn't have a blog? Where have you posted all of your creations until now? :)

  2. Oh WOW!! Welcome to the Fabulous world of Blogging - you will love it, and make so many new and wonderful friends! Your card is so gorgeous, I love the embellishments and colouring is very pretty! Thanks so much for taking a plunge and entering your name in for our DT call at Magnolia Down Under. I'm sure we will be seeing more of your work very soon!

  3. Adorable card, Sandy. Love the beautiful design and all the pretty elements. Tilda looks lovely and so cute in her purple dress. What a creative idea to create a carriage for her.
    You should pop in a follower gadget so that I can follow your blog, Hun.
