Sailor Tilda


Sorry, I've had to remove the photographs as apparently this card does appear in the Swedish version of Magnolia Ink which I was unaware of when I published the post

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. Another of my Magnolia cards to show today which didn't make it to Magnolia Ink but it's a summer card so it's nice to post it on the blog now. The sweet sailor Tilda and pier background were masked together and water coloured with distress inks then layered on red, blue and swiss dot embossed white velvet card. Finished off with the ribbon tied between the layers, a few dots with white gel pen, some stickles and a threaded button. See you on Wednesday with my TSG blog hop card and thanks as always for your lovely comments, I appreciate them very much.

Cherry Tilda

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is going well. A magnolia card today which was one that didn't go into the Midsummer Magnolia Ink magazine so thought I'd post it today. I've used the lovely Cherry Tilda from the 2008 travel and school collection and the Fence and Summer Background from the 2008 summer and sea collection. I've water coloured with distress inks and Tilda is cut out and and attached to the card with gel glue. The scalloped background is an SVG file cut on the cricut and to finish off I added some stickles, butterflies punched from watercolour paper and then water coloured and some linen thread bows. 

Thanks as always for your lovely comments and enjoy your Sunday.

Magnolia Bride and Bridesmaid

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week so far! A Magnolia Wedding Collection card today with the beautiful Bride and Bridesmaid stamp which I've water coloured with distress inks and cut out with a Nestabilities mega labels die. The background paper is by Magnolia and is punched with a Martha Stewart crown punch around the page punch then I've inked the edges of this, the die cut image and the card base with old paper distress ink. To decorate I added a ribbon that I inked with the distress ink, ruched up and attached with thin glue tape, some viva pearl and jewel pens, stickles, gold outline paste for the gold pearls and a pink pearl to the ribbon. 

I'm entering my card into the following chellenges:

Sir Stampalot - 'Punch it'
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - 'I do, I do, I do'

Thank you for your lovely comments, I always read and appreciate them.

Magnolia Wedding collection DT card

Hi everyone, hope you're weekend is off to a good start. A Magnolia wedding collection DT card today with a gorgeous new Tilda and Edwin, Sitting Wedding Tilda and Sitting Wedding Edwin, I think they'll be versatile, a relaxed style wedding, perhaps they're bridesmaid and groomsman or an anniversary couple and the new garlanded Wedding Rose Arch makes a lovely background for them. I've also used a pretty squig swirl stamp that came with my kit in the bottom right corner. Everything is water coloured with distress ink and I've distressed and inked the edges of the white card and watercolour paper. The pretty flowers and ribbon are all from the Magnolia shop. The colours are more citrus IRL, didn't quite capture them in the photograph. 

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Raise the bar: Celebrate summer (summer, the perfect time for a wedding)
Paperplay: Flowers and sparkle

Have a good weekend,
