Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT - Spring Fling

 Hi!  Today's card is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge where this week our theme is Spring.  I have used Pink Lemonade Tilda on my card and used spring colours and flowers.
 I have painted Tilda with Distress Ink pads and used a white gel pen for the flowers.
 The sentiment is also a Magnolia stamp and I have fixed the sentiment to two mini cotton reels which were a gift from my lovely friend Chris.
 The cheesecloth and flowers except the tulips are all from The Ribbon Girl and the dragonflies were cut with a Magnolia Doohickey die.
 I've also used the Lovely Fence Doohickey die and a leaf Doohickey.  The lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
 I've used a tag Doohickey die behind the image and used some tulle instead of ribbon through the tag.
 I've added glossy accents to Tilda's sunglasses...
 ...and her lemonade glass and bubbles!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia Down Under Challenges.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Christmas Kitchen Tilda

 Another Christmas card - I'm on a roll lol!  Although this one makes me think of New Years Eve because of the tartan paper I've used which is actually a recycled envelope I saved from last year's cards!
 I've painted Tilda with Distress Ink pads and added stickles to her dress and bow.
 The sentiment is an older Magnolia one.
 I used the new Vol 2 Doohicky dies to create the poinettia and mistletoe leaves and the pine cones are from The Ribbon Girl.
 The tag is another Doohicky die and the snowlfake charm is from The Ribbon Girl too.
 The rolled rose, ribbon, bellsl and button twine are from The Ribbon Girls.

A Vintage Christmas Card


 Good evening!  I have a vintage Christmas card to share using a gorgeous older stamp set from Stempelglede, Classic Christmas.  I have used some of the border and scroll stamps from the collection to make the background paper which was originally plain green.
 I have stamped the main image onto watercolour paper so that I could add touches of green using Distress Ink pads.
 I have embossed the sentiment and some of the scrolls with gold embossing powder.
 The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl and the spacer and pearl are from my stash.
 I have distressed the edges of the green paper and inked them with Walnut Stain distress ink.  The gold paper is by K&Co.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking. x

Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda

 Good morning!  I hope you've had a lovely week so far.  I've been busy making more Christmas cards with the new Magnolia club kit and Doohickey die kit.  I've made my own paper for this one using two of the snowflakes form the stamp club.
I've painted Tilda with Distress Ink pads and taken inspiration from my amazingly talented friend Debbie and added micro beads to the centres of the poinsettias.  I've also added a row of pearls along the bottome of the image.
I've used the poinsettia dies from the Vol 2 Doohickey kit to make the poinsettias and an older Doohickey for the pine leaves.  The pine cones and white twirl stems are from The Ribbon Girl.
The cute bauble was also cut with one of the new Vol 2 dies and the lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking. x

Magnolia-licious DT - Spooky Fun

 Good morning!  We have a new challenge up today over at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog and our theme is 'Spooky Fun'.  I made this cute pumpkin shaped card by cutting three ovals and overlapping them.
 I've inked the edges of the cardstock with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink and sanded it here and there to give it that roughed up look that pumpkins have.  I cut out the eyes and mouth shape with a craft knife.
 I've used the mini version of Wizard Tilda and painted her with Distress Ink pads.    I've added glossy accents to her glasses and stickles to the swirls and stars around her wand.
 I've used Papermania alphabet stamps for the sentiment and a spider charm and twine from my stash.  The pumpkin stalk is a piece of corrugated card.
 I've used the Magnolia Heart Swirl Doohickey too.
 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.magnolia-liciouschallengeblog.blogspot.com  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's spectacular spooky creations.
As always Diana is sponsoring the challenge with a fabulous prize from the Magnolia-licious store for the lucky winner.  Thanks for looking! x

One Piper Piping!

 Good morning!  I'm doing quite well with my Christmas card production at the moment, how about you?  Today's card features two of the gorgeous stamps from the Magnolia Autumn Stamp Club.
 I have stamped the 'Piping Tilda' (my name for her lol, don't know what she's really called yet) together with the hearts from the kit as Tilda is playing with love for Christmas.  Both are painted with Distress Ink Pads.
 The sentiment is also from the kit and I have embossed it in silver onto vellum.  The small snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
 The chiffon and pearl trim is from Live and Love Crafts and the gems are from my stash.
 I have also used the snowflake and tree dies from the Magnolia Doohickey Vol 2 kit and some 10mm white roses from The Ribbon Girl.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  Have a lovely weekend. x
