Hi everyone, hope you’re having a nice Sunday and hopefully some craft time :). A Magnolia DT card today using the gorgeous Honey Tilda, honey jar and bee stamps. I did some masking so that I could have Tilda sitting on the honey jar and she’s coloured with distress inks, glittered with some stickles then cut out and layered on a nestability die cut. The background paper is created using a mask over white bazzil card which I made and cut on the Cricut hopefully looking a bit like honeycomb? :) Used some chocolate and lemon glimmer mist to spray over the mask and then I over stamped with the bee stamp and brown ink. To decorate I added the ribbon which is also glimmer misted, the threaded buttons, clear copic spica glitter pen over Tilda’s clothes and the hand written Honey sentiment. TFL.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone, I hope you’ve all been showered with love :)!
A card today for Just Magnolia Challenge and a theme of ‘Love’, Double Dutch where it’s ‘Be my Valentine’, Stamp with fun ‘Hearts’ and The Pink Elephant ‘Mushy, Gushy Valentine’.
I’ve stamped the ever so cute Ladybug Tilda and water coloured her with distress inks, cut her out with a nestabilities die, added lots of stickles, copic spica glitter pen and glossy accents to her spotty jacket. The background paper is also by Magnolia and I’ve faux stitched around the edges of it. There’s a border of white card with punched with the doily lace punch finished off and red dotted ribbon and to finish off I added the Magnolia ‘Loving Wishes’ sentiment which I cut in half after stamping and some clear gems.
Have a cosy evening and TFL.

Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a good weekend. A card today for The Cuttlebug Challenge where the theme this time is to make a mask and use glimmer mist. For my mask I used a strip of paper that I’d previously punched some hearts from, placed it over the white heart doily die cut and sprayed it with Creme de chocolat glimmer mist, moved it up and sprayed again the embossed with the hearts cuttlebug folder. I stamped the gorgeous Amor Tilda and water coloured her with distress inks and then cut her out. There’s stickles dotted about and little pearls on her headband done with a Viva Decor pearl pen. The round card blank was cut on the Expression as was the scalloped heart doily and on the blank I’ve stamped with the Magnolia Love post and love heart stamps in old paper distress ink. The large heart is another die cut and the smaller one is from a Martha Stewart punch, both have been edged with walnut stain distress ink and then glittered with chunky glitter. A pretty ribbon, a Papermania sentiment and a few more pearl drops to finish. TFL and as always, thank you for the lovely comments you leave, I really do appreciate them very much.

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. A card today for four challenges :D, Just Magnolia is hearts, CCT is blooming gorgeous, MTTCC is elegant rose and SCSC is hearts, it’s not often I manage a multiple challenges!
I’ve used the absolutely gorgeous ‘Right through my heart’ Tilda from Raising the ceiling collection which I think is going to be available to buy here in the UK this week. Tilda is coloured with distress inks, glittered and gilded around the image edges and on her bow with gold embossing powder. The background paper is also by Magnolia and I embossed the edges of this too, it worked really well as the paper is a nice thick quality, almost like card. I die cut a nestability frame, sponged with gold ink and then cut off the top and bottom and added to the top and bottom of the image just underneath, I think she looks a bit Grecian and needed framing :). The bullseye circle and the sentiment are also Magnolia stamps and also embossed in gold. I added some criss crossed dotted ribbon too to finish off. TFL and thanks as always for your lovely comments which I hope to return as soon as I catch up with things.
