Tilda's Coffee Mug Cozy- DT Creation for Marvelous Magnolia

Hello Everyone!

Today we begin a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia.
The challenge theme is Anything But A Card,
sponsored by
Magnolia-licious and The Ribbon Girl.

So, guess what I came up with?


I bought myself a Christmas present a couple of weeks ago,
a new coffee mug from Starbucks.
This ceramic mug is white and fairly plain, and I could just hear
it calling out to me to dress it up for the holiday :^).


Since I discovered the joy of TAP paper recently,
I could not help myself making another fabric project.
I stamped the images on TAP paper and colored them with Copics.
I then ironed the images on fabric.


I machine stitched the mug cozies with laces and ribbons,
and added fabric glitters and pearls here and there.
The cozies are lined with felts to give extra insulation. 

These mug cozies are washable and easily fit in the purse.
They keep your hand from burning and keep your coffee or tea warm.
I think I will make a few more for different seasons.


Hope you enjoy this visit.
I would love it if you hop over to Marvelous Magnolia to
check out my team mates' creations
and join in the fun.

Hugs,
Katie

The new challenge theme is Winter, and our sponsor is Kenny K.

I am stepping down from the designer team so I'll have more time
to keep up with my personal life :^).

I used 2 pieces of transparencies on the sides to join the 2 circles,
the supporting stand is custom measured/cut. 
The card can be fold flat for mailing.


The digi image I used is Kenny K "Xmas Tree".
I colored it with Copic markers and sponged the edges with ink.
I also added some tiny pearls in the background.


I die cut a piece of snow flake wreath (Memory Box die) and
used it to frame the front of the globe.
I added some tiny snowflake punch-outs (Martha Stewart) 
and attached Rhinestone for additional sparkles.


The sentiment "NOEL" is a Magnolia stamp, I colored it with Copics.
Dies used are Magnolia Doohickey, Spellbinder, Memory Box.

Tilda's Tealight Holder - GDT Project for Stamping Sensations

Hello Everyone!

I have a GDT project to share with you today.
Couple of months ago I won the Photo Inspiration Challenge at Stampalot;
I was asked to guest design in the December challenge.
This month's challenge theme is Treemendous.

I have made a tea-light candle holder as the GDT project.



I started with a cylinder (5"H x 3.75"W) made of cardstock and
fitted a tray at the top to hold a tea-light candle.
I decorated the top and bottom edges of the cylinder with MS edge punchouts
and pom-pom ribbons, and filled the tray rim with WOC flowers.



I then attached a wider circle (5"H x 4.75"W) to the base of the cylinder
and decorated the edge with TH snowflake die-cuts.
I filled the space between the cylinder and the circular base with white felt strips.


I created a winter scene on a piece of 3.75" x 12" white cardstock,
using a couple of Magnolia background stamps and a mini winter forest stamp.
I colored the images with Copic markers and sponged the sky with ink.
I also used pearl and glitter pens to add sparkles here and there.
I glued the background scene to the cylinder with sticky tapes.


I stamped out 7 mini Tilda figures, colored them with Copic markers,
 fussy cut out the images, and placed them around the winter scene.


I have used a battery operated tea-light candle in the project.
The tray is large enough to hold a glass tea-light candle dish.


Thanks very much for stopping by and hope you enjoy this visit.

Now, time to hop over to Stamping sensations to check out their fabulous DT 
creations for inspiration and join in the fun creating!

Hope you all have had a lovely weekend.

I made this to enter in the Stampsmith Monochromatic White Challenge.
It is a small pouch, measuring 3.5" x 5.5" (including the lace).
It can be used as a jewelry pouch or a change purse.


The image I used is Ophelia from Stampsmith.
I stamped the image on TAP paper and then ironed it on fine cotton fabric.
I framed the image with some laces and a few pearls.



I machine stitched the linen pouch and lined it with cotton fabric.
I added some laces, organza rose ribbon, seam binding ribbon, 
pearls and buttons to dress up the pouch.


I sewed a couple of snap-closure buttons along the top opening
which can be closed flat or like a pyramid.




Thanks so much for stopping by 
and

Vintage Christmas Fabric Projects

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a couple of vintage Christmas projects to share with you.
I  picked up some oval wooden boxes at Michaels for $1.50/ea;
they are perfect size for altered Christmas gift boxes.

I was in the mood of making fabric/lace altered projects 
and these are what I came up with. 


The oval wooden box measures 4.25" x 2.5" x 2.5".
I stamped Crafty Individuals-332 image on TAP paper with 
brown StazOn ink and then ironed on muslin fabric.
I added glitter gel on the snowflakes to give some sparkles.


I hand and machine stitched various laces and pearls to frame the image.
I layered a piece of light-weight batting material under the muslin to 
give some padding and depth before mounting it on to the lid.
I covered the rim with a piece of seam binding to conceal 
the frayed edges of muslin and then with lace.


I covered the side and bottom of the box with DP from Magnolia 
and attached a strip of lace at the base.
I added tiny pearls on the lace using Viva Decor Pearl Pen.


I was surprised it didn't take me very long to alter this box,
less time than making a card :^)


I also made a little lace cone ornament/ gift bag.
The cone is 6.5" long without the tassel.

The base of the cone is a piece of pink Magnolia DP.
I cut out a pie shape using a compass- 6" radius and a 70 degree angle,
made the paper cone and covered it with lace.

I decorated the cone with an musical angel image (CI-154 stamped on 
TAP and transferred onto muslin), tiny pom pom ribbon, 
more laces, appliques, pearls and a tassel. 
I attached a crystal bead string so it can be hung up for display.


These are easy and fun projects to make and great for Christmas giveaway.
Why not give it a try. 
If you have any question, just drop me a line.

Hope you enjoyed this visit.

Hugs,
Katie
