TOMIC 26 - Vintage and Lace

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend! It's the start of a new challenge on TOMIC today and this week our theme is 'Vintage and Lace' with this definition of vintage:

"The vintage style is very popular, and it is simply to make your card or
project look old. You can often find distressed & inked edges, laces, roses,
notepapers ect. on a vintage project."

I've used ice Tilda again for this card, I think she's very sweet and this time I've coloured her with distress inks and used the snowflakes from the Sweet Christmas collection in the background. I dyed my white lace with glimmer spray and glued it around the image panel for a frame and the DooHickey die cut snowflake and punched snowflake were also coloured with glimmer spray as was the seam binding ribbon. The card was cut using a GoKreate frame die and I've used gorgeous Bo Bunny Christmas paper to cover it, it's very sparkly with glitter snowflakes. To finish off I added gems, a little rusty bell, pearl pen dots and everything was edged with vintage photo distress ink.

I hope you can join us in the the challenge this week, as always there's a gorgeous prize to be won from Magnolia and lots of inspiration from my DT friends.

Enjoy your day :)

Magnolia - Let it snow

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great weekend! I have a little snowy Magnolia scene card to show today using the sweet Magnolia Skaters from the 2009 New Year Collection and Ice Tilda from the 2011 Sweet Christmas collection. Everything is coloured with pencils and the card base is stamped with the snowflakes from the current Sweet Christmas collection in white and Vintage Photo Distress ink. Everything is edged with vintage photo and white gel pen dots then I added lots of pearl pen dots and stickles stardust glitter glue for sparkle in the trees and on the ice.

DYSU GDT - Paris Tilda in the country

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week! Today I have a card to show as this week's Guest Designer on Do You Stack Up challenge blog where the challenge theme is grass. Thank you very much for inviting me ladies, it's been a real pleasure to join you in the challenge this week and I hope that there'll be lots of entries for this lovely theme. I've painted a little grassy scene for Paris Tilda to stand in.......I think she wanted a break from the city :). 

I've painted Tilda and the scene with distress inks, Tilda was painted separately and cut out and the background was painted then die cut using a GoKreate die. I've also used the Magnolia 'loving wishes' sentiment which I've cut apart. I added pearl pen dots, stickles and gel pen to decorate and it was nice to make a non Christmas card although I reallllly need to be making Christmas cards :D!

Enjoy your day!

TOMIC 25 - Animal Mania

Hi everyone, Monday again and time for another challenge at TOMIC! This week our challenge is Animal Mania and to use any Magnolia animal and Magnolia patterned paper on the project. I hope you can join us in the challenge and as always there's a gorgeous prize on offer from Magnolia Stamps. 

I've used the Sweet Christmas Tilda and Christmas hat from the Sweet Christmas collection, Magnolia with butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams 2011 collection and the Merry Christmas ticket stamp from the 2008 Christmas collection. Tilda and the hat are masked together and I stamped Magnolia without her butterfly before colouring with pencils. I've used Magnolia Sweet Rainbow paper, 'Wild Red' which is perfect for Christmas too and I've also used the Spruce branch and snowflake Doohickey dies, I love them both, they're so delicate and pretty. The kraft paper under the image is embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and the raised parts are highlighted with white ink. To decorate I added stardust stickles, pearl pen dots, seam binding ribbon, tinsel, a star pin, and a rusty bell.


Today is the last day to order the Winter Stamp Club package. Here's the LINK to order. 

Enjoy your day! :)

TOMIC 24 Use a paper bag and get inspired by the photo


Hi everyone! A new challenge starts over on TOMIC today which is to use a paper bag together with an inspiration photo. I've decorated a kraft paper gift bag using the gorgeous Ribbon Tilda (love her plaited pigtales!), the Christmas love holly and the sweet snowflakes stamps from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. The bag has been stamped and embossed with the holly and snowflakes stamps and Tilda has been coloured with pencils on kraft card. I made a border for the image using the Swirly Lace doohickey die and die cut some little horses to go along the bottom. To decorate I made some shabby chic flowers from Magnolia paper, some roses from Bazzil card, die cut snowflakes and decorative elements. 

I hope you can join us for the challenge, as always there's a gorgeous prize on offer from Magnolia.

Enjoy your day!
