Tilda Card, Bracelet & Altered Jar

I am very proud of myself today, not only have I completed a new card, I have also made a 'tester' bracelet and an altered jar.

First up is a Tilda card that I made for my friend in the US' birthday.
I coloured her in a couple of days ago with me new ProMarkers.
I had to order some new ones as I didn't have any 'pastel' coloured ones, and as they were under £5 a pack, I figured why not!

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

  • Tilda pre-stamped image {from eBay}
  • ProMarkers
  • Stickles
  • Anita's Glossy Accents
  • Pin
  • Self Adhesive Flat Pearls
  • Mulberry Paper Flowers
  • Leaf
  • Laura Ashley Paper {deep purple}
  • Papermania Papers {pink & lighter purple}
  • 3D Foam pads to lift Tilda off the card

Next up is a little bracelet that I quikcly put together, more of a tester, to see whether I would enjoy making more before I bought all the tools and lots of beads.
And I found some wire and basic beads in my stash, so I gave it a go, and I did enjoy it, so I will be investing in some better beads and tools etc. soon!


  • Wire
  • Beads

And lastly is an old pasta sauce jar that I altered to put my new mulberry paper flowers in.
As the lid was green all over I decided to keep the green theme.
I didn't have any green ribbon though, so I recycled an old piece of green ribbon I had laying around.

As you can see, the paper didn't go all the way around, but you can see all those yummy flowers and delishious colours!

  • Empty glass pasta sauce jar
  • Papermania paper
  • Ribbon
  • Prima Flower
  • Lovely mulberry paper flowers to fill jar
I almost forgot....
I got new toys a few days ago, a sealing wax gun, wax, and a 'J' sealing coin, and I totally *heart* it!
I can easily see how addictive this might become!
