Hi everyone! Here's the sweet paddling Tilda from the new stamp club kit and of course because she has short curly hair, she's my favourite :D! I've watercoloured Tilda then doodled and watercoloured a little river bank of flowers behind her. I've used the new Tilda's ticket die which is tucked under the image, the paper is by Pion and I've added the stamp club kit sentiment,  faux stitching, stickles, flowers, ribbon and pearls to decorate.

I'm entering my card into the Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge where the theme is butterflies and there are two in the image.

Enjoy your day :)

TOMIC 46 - Magnolia World + Doo hickey tag

Hi everyone! There's a new challenge starting on TOMIC today which is to use any stamp from Magnolia mini world, a doohickey tag die as the base for the stamp and then the tag can be part of a larger item. Hope you can join us for the challenge and as always there's a gorgeous prize to be won.

 I've used the cute mini world Tilda from the new stamp club kit and I stamped her onto the doohickey tag which is cut from watercolour paper. I watercoloured with various media, inked edges, added stickles and mounted the tag on to the blue card then cut around it to leave a border.

I made a gift box, pizza box style which measures four inches square, it's my favourite box to make as it's so simple and can be modified to different sizes very easily. I think the patterned paper is October Afternoon, but not too sure and after decorating the box with that I added the tag on top of a Spellbinders fleur de lis die cut, added ribbon, flowers, pearls and a beaded tassel at the front.

This is one of the rare occasions when all the sparkle of the stickles has shown up in the photographs but it shows up a bit too much :D...........can't believe I said that!

Beach Finds

Hi everyone, hope you had a good day today. Here's my second card with images from the new Magnolia stamp club kit and a gorgeous Tilda (loved her bobbed hair) and sweet Edwin. Two of my favourite Tilda hair cuts in this kit, bobbed and the short curly style so I was very happy :D! 

Same as yesterday's card for simple style and media which were distress markers, watercolour markers, watercolour crayons. Lots of doodling on this one...............the whole background. I've added some faux stitching, punched corners, pearl pen dots and then the sentiment which I stamped four times in green, red, yellow and blue ink.

Thank you for all your sweet comments as always, they're very much appreciated. Enjoy your evening.

A sunny day at the beach

Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely Easter! I've been having a colouring session with the new Magnolia stamp club kit and here's the first of two I've finished. The card is so simple it feels like cheating :D but for both of the cards I made it just felt like that's how they should be. 

I've created a beach scene and the gorgeous sitting Tilda (don't know any of their names yet) has been masked with the large shell from the kit, love her shoes! I added mini Tilda with life ring further up the beach and then the setting sun. Everything is water coloured with a mixture of distress ink markers, water colour crayons and water colour markers and I've added my doodling, faux stitching, the sentiment from the kit (doubled up on the word sunny), and pearl pen dots to finish off.

No such sunny day here....rain, rain, rain, all day! Back soon with the next card, enjoy your evening.

Bunny Tilda

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good start to the week. I have a Magnolia card to show today with the gorgeous bunny tilda. She's watercoloured, cut out and sitting on a die cut floral circle and I think she's very cute, I couldn't wait to colour her again this year....I like making Easter Magnolia cards almost as much as making Christmas Magnolia cards :).

I've used Magnolia pink stripe paper for the background and it's such a pretty pink too. I also added a doily die cut, a die cut circle from pink Bazzil card which is also embossed and I cut the flower circle again from Crafty Individuals paper and then cut just some of the flower to place over the white die cut. The butterfly is done in the same way, CI patterned paper for the bottom die cut this time and white Bazzil for the top. Added pen dots, gems, pearls and seam binding to finish off, oh and some stickles of course :).

I'm entering my card into MDUC where the theme this week is Easter.
