Skating Tilda

Good Morning Friends and Magnolia Fans.
I'm back from a two week break in The Dominican. Of course I started painting as soon as I got back. It's part of who I am and I will be lost without it.
This is today's Christmas card and it's made into an easel.
All the dies used are Magnolia, but the wooden sentiment and skates were bought on line last year and decorated by me. The lace, doilies and flowers are from my stash and all papers are from Maja Design. I rarely use anything the vintage feel to them.
Once again, Tilda has been painted with distress inks on watercolour paper and glittered.
The base has a tag, cut from a Magnolia die and it opens up for a Christmas greeting.
It has the same glittered ribbon, a diamanté snowflake and touches of gesso for snow.
Now the whole card.
I hope you like it.
It will be for sale on eBay under Magnolia Tilda Cards.

Good Morning
There's a nip in the air this morning. No doubt that Autumn has arrived, and the heating is on. I am going to bore you now, with yet another Christmas card.
This one uses an older stamp, Tilda with Rudolph. I still use it a lot because it is so cute.
She has been painted with distress ink, mounted, and inked on the edges. I also glittered some snow flakes and added tiny pearls to the centres. This is a closer view of the image.
Glittered hat, trim and Rudolph's tum, but my camera doesn't capture it well.
there are so many elements to this card, it's impossible to mention them all. Most of the diecuts are Magnolia and I have used lacy paper doilies in the background.

The lace holds a snowy fence from which Tilda's glittery ice-skates hang from beads.
And a double bow of seam binding has a diamanté and pearl embellishment.

And last of all, here is a picture of the flowers, berries and cones.

I hope you like this card and my pictures. I am going to try and add as much detail as I can to this blog. And keep it going.....
If you visit, please leave me a comment to encourage me.
Have a lovely day.

 All Wrapped Up for Christmas
Staring Tilda {of course}
Another Christmas card from me. This time using three different Magnolia stamps. Firstly stamping Tilda and her dog, then masking them before stamping the tree.
As usual, I painted with distress ink and water.
Glittery, glamour dust is about....its Christmas x
I kept the card square, but layered the Maja paper using white Bazzill card and die cuts.
Wide gold ribbon bow holds a sparkly snowflake.
Also, pearls, holly leaves, berries and red and white flowers decorate the corners.
I hope you like it.
