Santa Tilda is coming to town

Hi there fellow crafters and friends! 
I´d like to welcome you to the start of our new challenge running all throughout august over at the Live & Love crafts blog. We have another amazing theme that was really fun to work with, its WARM or COOL colors. This is also a GDT card for Noor! Design

I chose to work with warm colors. Let me tell you it turned out to be a big challenge as everything about winter season is cold ;) And my gosh, its a good thing white is neither warm or cold but a complimentary color (as well as black) because then I could use that freely ;) lol
Heres a picture to help you see which is which if you're not sure: 

The stamp is a Tilda from Magnolia and I colored her with distress ink pads on 300 g watercolor papers. 

The papers are from Maja Design. The collection is called "Its christmas time". Look at that cute Santa peeking out ;) I felt I had to also add a couple of christmas apples and the mini apples are perfect for that. I paired them up with the amazing berry pin. It looks a bit like a snowball don't you think? A very fashionable snowball but still ;) As always you can see all the products Ive used from Live & Love crafts at the end of this posting. 
In this picture you can also see the beyond lush snowflake die from Joy Designs (Noor! Design) a little better. 

Here´s the BEAUTIFUL laser-cut snowflake I was talking about. Its designed by cute and incredibly talented Jolanda Bergman for a newly started dutch company called Dutch Doobadoo

Do not forget to take a look at the gorge creations by my talanted teamies :)

Thank you so much for being here today :)

  5. Hi, Louise. I had to stop by and get a closer look at this beauty. Tilda looks adorable on that frame with the lovely frantage around her. The jute fabric, lace and cheesecloth add so much interest and texture. And I love how you let your Santa paper show through a bit, so cute. A stunning make!

  8. Hej Louise,
    Vilket ljuvligt shabbigt julkort! Det finns sa manga sota jul-Tildor, och denna finns med pa min topp-lista. Hon ar sa sot med sitt forklade, det ger en slags gammaldags traditionell julkansla och jag tycker darfor att hon gor sig bast i rott precis som du malat henne. Underbar anvandning av Majas papper och perfekt med lite jute till. Kram, Sandy

  9. Completely gorgeous - I love the colour palette, with the white in between to keep it fresh - brilliant inspiration for the Warm colours!
