Late summer walk with a friend

Hi everyone, it's been a typical UK Bank Holiday Weekend so far with a soggy and dismal day here, hopefully it'll cheer up as the weekend goes on ;)! No such weather for Summertime Tilda with bow and Tilda with daisies and mushrooms they are enjoying blue skies and flowery meadows :D!! 

As usual, everything is watercoloured with DI markers, watercolour markers and watercolour crayons. A bit of white gel pen for the flower centres and a doodled tree and background. I've used DooHickey tiny zig zag border die cut from kraft card behind the panel, a piece of chipboard painted light blue at the back, corrugated card for the heart and corners, a pretty daisy, chit chat stickers, the Tim Holtz doily edge die cut from grunge paper and painted and twine bows to decorate. This is a free standing panel using the Tim Holtz easel stand die which I cut from chipboard and attached to the back. This was the gift that went with the card I showed yesterday.

I'm entering my panel into the Deep Ocean Challenge blog's theme this week of deep blue.....hope my blue is deep enough? :).

Enjoy your evening. 

A grand day out

Hi everyone, I hope you've had a good week and the weekend is off to a good start. A card and it's presentation box to share today which was made for a very special lady who's just had her birthday. 

Tilda and Edwin siblings are having a grand day out in the country, sitting among the flowers under the old oak tree :). Everything is watercoloured and background scene doodled in. The swirly roses are hand cut from colour washed thin paper and the Magnolia DooHickey vintage flowers were cut from the same paper. I added lots of pearl pen pearls, faux stitching and a handmade background paper.

I made a box for the card to be presented in using thick blue card and Prima paper.

All the flowers and leaves are made using DooHickey dies cut from the same blue card and Prima paper with the edges either inked or distressed with sandpaper. I made a band for the middle using a Martha Stewart punch on the edges.

Thank you for visiting as always and I'll be back soon with a post about the gift that went with this card :)

Little Christmas

Hi everyone and I hope your week is going well so far. I have set of cards to share today with the gorgeous new Little Christmas collection stamps Cozy Christmas Bear, Tilda with a cute lamb and Coco with present. They're all watercoloured with watercolour crayons and markers and then cut out with a circular nestabilities die.  

I've made circular shaped cards to give the impression of a Christmas bauble with a snowflake embossed front piece, a scalloped nestie circle behind the image, a punched snowflake and a DooHickey die cut snowflake. The embossing and all edges of the card have been swiped with iced spruce distress ink and I've added some sparkly pearly embellishments to the snowflakes and pretty wired ribbon. 

Tilda's Town have a challenge of vintage this week and I'm entering my card set into that.

Goosebump Tilda

Hi everyone, hope you're having a lovely weekend! A tag shaped card to share today using the sweet Goosebump Tilda from the Turning Leaves Collection. The colouring is with watercolours with some doodling over it and I've then cut her out and mounted her over the background with glue gel.

The tag card was easy to make using a corner punch on the top corners and cropodile punch for the centre hole. I embossed the card with a Tim Holtz brickwork embossing folder and swiped over the raised brickwork with vintage photo and walnut stain distress ink pads.

The window/shutters/flower window box are Memory Box die cuts all coloured with distress inks/acrylic paint. Behind the window there's some muslin fabric for a curtain and to finish off I added a punched grass border, punched flowers with pearl centres, a punched and watercoloured butterfly, ribbon and a chit chat sticker sentiment.

I'm entering my card into the Ribbon Girl Card Challenge where the current challenge is bingo. I've chosen the top line acrosse of ribbon - pearls - image.

Little Christmas collection 2012

Hi everyone, hope you had a good start to the week. Here are two of the beautiful new angel Tilda's from the upcoming "Little Christmas' Collection 2012 which are on pre-order in many of our favourite Magnolia retailers :). This is Dancing with stars Tilda on the left side and Little Tilda on the right.

I've made two little gift bags using the Sizzix Tim Holtz gift bag die and kraft card. The stamping was done directly onto the bags before they were put together and I've coloured with pencils this time. I've used two Magnolia snowflake stamps to make the background which were stamped in black. There's pretty ribbon, lots of stickles in silver and holly red and also some chit chat stickers and Papermania glitter circles.

I'm entering the Tilda's Town challenge which this week is to name your technique. I suppose there's a technique to colouring on kraft card so that's technique one and I've embellished with glitter glue inside the stamped snowflakes so I'll have that as my second technique :).

Thanks as always for your lovely comments and sorry if I haven't managed to reciprocate just yet. Enjoy your evening :)
