TWO projects!

This is very unusual for me! I'm not usually ahead enough to post two things at once! I had one final Autumn project that I wanted to show you and since it's officially Christmas season I thought I'd tuck it in here! See my Autumn Mum box below. While I've been waiting for my new Christmas Magnolia stamps from Diana (they came yesterday!!) I colored up this little Tilda from the Summer kit (but also sold separately due to its popularity) and put her on a chipboard ornament.
I cut the ornament from a medium thickness coaster. I used an Ellison die at school and cut it on the Ellison machine. This weight coaster does not cut with my cuttlebug. I traced, cut and glued some Cosmo Cricket paper onto the chipboard. I sanded the edges and then used distress tea dye ink on the edges followed by some matte accents glue and diamond dust glitter. Tilda is colored with copics and then mounted on dimensionals onto the chipboard. Her wings are sparkled up with Stardust stickles and her dress is painted with Angel Wings shimmerz paint. A few latte colored pearls and some Papertrey ribbon and she's ready for the tree. Very fun and easy to make!

A close up of this sweet angel.
My autumn box with papertrey inks beautiful pitcher of mums. Paper is again Cosmo Cricket.
The top of the box has one of the huge chocolate buttons from my Papertrey buttons. Love it!
Thanks so much for visiting today! We plan to get the tree out t0day and I hope to start creating with my wonderful new Magnolia stamps! This afternoon we are going to visit my SIL in the hospital. I can't thank you enough for the prayers said for her!
Wishing you an excellent day!

Great projects, Cheryl!! We are decorating our tree today too! I'm being a bit lazy this year....I mean I'm SIMPLIFYING this year...& just having the boys put up their tree. We usually have one big one, & one for them...I think one is plenty this year! The season has barely begun & I'm exhausted already, lol!
