 It's Christina here hoping you are all well.
 At the beginning of the year, I resolved to use all the  unused stamps and papers that are stashed away in my craft room.
So here is Christmas Kitchen Tilda, which I thought perfect for Mothers Day.
 I am totally in love with these  pretty Pion papers and can't believe I haven't used them before. I love pink and blue so I added a touch of pink to brighten the card up.

 Warning - loads of pictures.
All the dies are Magnolia. The birdcage was cut from the same paper and heat embossed  to give a glassy shine.
All the lace, ribbon, heart etc. are from the Ribbon Girl. Oh, how I love that diamanté heart, must buy more!
 Tilda was coloured with distress re- inkers onto watercolour paper and stitched to match the rest of the card.
With Glamour Dust on her apron.
 There is a hidden tag inside the easel fold for a greeting.
That touch of bling - the sparkly heart.

The birdcage- Blue pearls on lace .

That's all for now but I'm sure I will be back soon.
Hope you like the card.

Anything Goes with the option of 'Bling'

I have chosen Tilda with Big Rose from the Pink Lemonade collection and coloured her with distress re-inkers.
Of  course I added some bling!
 Pale pink pearl stringing is intertwined on Tildas' frame.
She has Glamour dust added to her lace and rose, also sprinkled on the edges of the leaves.

The papers are Maja design, distressed and stitched.
The die cuts are all made with Marianne dies. There is some very pretty lace somewhere, peeping out from the roses.

I hope you are enjoying the weekend.
This is a card made with "You'r a Star" from
 Lili of the Valley with sentiments from Lili of the Valley.
It is coloured with distress inks on watercolour paper with lots of Glamour dust and a little crown charm.
The papers are Maja Design, flowers and button from my stash and the flags were just cut out freehand.
 I've just noticed a hair on the card, courtesy of my Labradoodle who loses her coat constantly. Never believe anyone who tells you they don't moult, first generations often do. She loses hair all year round! Anyway, you can just see the charm in the corner and the Glamour Dust on the wings and wand.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card.

Magnolia - Loves Me Loves Me Not Tilda

Hello Friends

Today's card is " He Loves Me...Loves Me Not Tilda", made with Maja papers and coloured with distress re-inkers onto watercolour paper.
The little wooden bird has been painted with gesso and lightly embossed with shabby Frontage. The card shape is cut with Go Kreate dies. Others are Magnolia swirl, Marianne leaves and Spellbinder circles/labels.
The pretty lace and  papers are from Live & Love crafts, the
ribbon and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl.
The tag is hidden in the fold of the card.

And a picture of the base with Lili of the Valley sentiment
It's snowing here in London. Just a little bit and melting as it hits the pavement in strong sunshine. Bitter cold though.
Thank you for your comments,

This is my first Tiddly Ink card. I recently found these sweet little stamps. I've a few of the new ones pre-ordered from Bunny Zoe.
  This is made using a  digi' download, basically because I have no patience and wanted to make a card now.
This is "Flutterby"
I had problems photographing this card. It looks dull here but quite bright  in real life

I used distress re-inkers to colour her, but wouldn't really recommend this for digi's. I had to paint with a very dry brush to try and stop the print mixing. It is possible though...
Her wings and butterflies have added Glamour Dust and the bodies of the butterflies are made from Fimo.
Papers are Maja Design, dies are Magnolia and JoyCraft.
Flowers and pearl string - Ribbon Girl.

Thank you for taking time to visit me here today.
 I hope you like the card.

Magnolia Tilda - Ice skate Tilda

Hi Everyone
I hope you are well.
  I almost forgot to post my TILDAS TOWN DT card !
The days go round so quickly. Its the first of February today, nearly Spring!
So. this weeks challenge is "Freezin' Season". I didn't want to make a Christmas card ... I'm all Christmas'd out.  All my Tilda's had holly or Christmas hats on, so I searched in my image box and found an image from a few years ago  which I coloured with my copic pens. 
With the help of a few die cuts and some Maja papers I made this sparkly, cold weather card.
 I hope you like it.
