This is my second card from the new Christmas Maggies; such a sweet little stamp. Her wings cry out for Glamour Dust and Stickles and we are allowed to use this liberally at Christmas!
I admit to going a bit overboard with this card and adding lots of seasonal joy.
However, I held back on lace this time! The Wild Orchid Craft flowers and holly leaves have added berries and pine cones. The shabby bark stars have white pearls to match the pearl string draped around Tilda. The seam binding bow holds a heart and an angel charm.
Dies; The card was cut with GoKreate dies, matted to textured white card. I think the border die is an old Marianne die, not sure...Snowflakes and main doily die are Joy Craft.
Angel Tilda was painted with distress inks with added liquid pearls and Glamour dust.
Papers are Maja Design.
I hope you like this card.
It will be on sale on eBay in Magnolia Tilda Cards, from Friday.
Hugs and happy crafting everyone

Happy Dance,; my new stamps are here and they are so sweet and Christmassy! I had to stamp them up right away, and so far I've made two cards. One with the Christmas Angel Tilda and another with the Gingerbread Tilda.
So today, I thought we would do the cute little Gingerbread Tilda. I've given her a gingerbread man to hold, and added two peppermint sticks to match the sentiment.
Now, I know traditionally she should be brown but never to be one to follow, I've painted her red. Because she told me to..ha-ha x

Isn't this stamp a cutie!
So lets list; a triple seam binding bow with pearly heart, A double sided Christmas stocking charm, with gingerbread man and peppermint canes, Roses and flowers from my stash with a cinnamon stick and tiny pine cones...collected on my travels; and berries. The lace is from the Ribbon Girl as is the seam binding and Glamour Dust.
Dies: Card cut with GoKreate dies, Fancy star and circle are Joy Craft dies and the holly leaves. I believe are Marriane dies, though I've had them so long its hard to remember.
Those gorgeous papers are from Maja Design of Sweden, layered onto white textured card.
The Gingerbread Tilda
Gingerbread Tilda was stamped and painted onto watercolour paper. The medium is Tim Holtz distress re-inkers with added Glamour dust for sparkle and liquid pearls for snow.
That's all for today...thank you Janette for being my one and only follower.

Magnolia Joyeux Noel Tilda

Good Morning
The clocks have gone back an hour here in the UK, so it's lighter in the mornings but will be darker earlier in the evenings.
The first sign that Winter isn't far away.
Todays card is another Christmas card. I know its Halloween, but not many folk send cards for this occasion here...hence so many Christmas cards.
I hope you like this Magnolia Tilda. Once again painted with distress inks on watercolour paper. There is a range of doilies, dies, pearl stringing, lace and glittered velvet ribbon. The bow holds a rhinestone snowflake.
This card is for sale on eBay.
Search Magnolia Tilda Cards and you will see her there. Wishing you all a lovely Sunday.
Hugs Chris x

Magnolia with Sparkling Poinsettia

Magnolia with Sparkling Poinsettia

This Easel card was made a few weeks ago and uses a contemporary colour scheme of Lilac and blue. The poinsettias' Tilda is holding are glittered and really stand out.
The light  is vey bad today her in London, which makes the card look dull.
Its anything but in real life.
The opening tag on the base is hidden by an organdie bow and a rhinestone snowflake.
It will be for sale on eBay this weekend.
Just search for 'Magnolia Tilda Cards', and you will see it there.

Whimsy/Sylvia Zet Christmas Card

I made this card in reds and blues to create a warm atmosphere for Winter.
It's slightly different to my other cards. In a good way I hope.
The image is hand painted, using distress inks on watercolour paper.
Her earmuffs, the fur on her boots and the ice she stands on are crystal glittered.
The sentiment and image is layered onto mirror card, with an added holly charm on the sentiment.
The lace is rich guipure, so pretty and the die cuts and doilies echo its beauty.
Tiny pine cones and berries decorate the holly leaves, with gesso snow on the flowers.
The inside is fully decorated with a clear place for a greeting.
It will be on eBay at the end of the week.
Thank You For Looking

Magnolia Tilda With Poinsattia Basket

 This is a Friday post, because I thought yesterday was Saturday and put all my cards on eBay a day early!

I woke up today thinking it was Sunday...those of you who now me will realise this behaviour is quite normal for me. The words Fairy and Away With, come to mind, ha-ha.
Because of this mistake, I have another card to share.
This is Tilda With A  Basket Of Poinsettias
Lots of things going on here. Sometimes I don't know when to stop and I'm quite aware of that. As usual I painted this Magnolia Tilda stamp with distress inks on watercolour paper. The holly leaves are made with Marianne Dies, the shape with GoKreate, and others are Joy Craft. I gathered some of my special lace on this card, shhhh...its reserved for special cards only. I don't want to run out!
The birds at the top are dusted with Glamour Dust so they twinkle.
The little tags are held with bakers twine and paper doilies surround the card.

The flowers are mixed, by myself and I added Winter berries and 'cones', that I collected from the trees in Lanzarote. They are a perfect size for cards .
Hopefully I will know that tomorrow is Sunday, but you never know.
Please leave a comment if you look at my blog. I know a lot do...just say hello and I can follow you.

All Wrapped Up Tilda With Candle

Good Morning From Dreary Kent
where the sky is heavy and threatening
the fireworks started yesterday for Diwali, so I have had two scared dogs to console AND I expect this will go on until after Christmas. Moaning me today!
Here is another Magnolia Christmas card. This time Tilda has her Winter coat on, 'cos it's snowing...hence going overboard with the Glamour Dust. Ha-ha.
So this picture isn't very clear. Will change it later. The dies are Marianne, flowers are Wild Orchid Craft and I have added a little gesso here and there.
Tilda was painted with distress inks and the card was cut using Go-Kreate dies.
Lace, mitt's, pearls and bakers twine.
Flowers, pearls, die cuts and the sentiment.
I'm selling my cards on eBay. Not to make money, but to enable me to buy my
Magnolia Tilda Stamps and pursue my beloved hobby.
So if you're interested go to eBay; search Magnolia Tilda Cards and you will see mine there, Made By Chris x....that's a British kiss 'x'
Thank you to my follower/s for leaving me a comment or two.
Love You

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

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.

Magnolia Tilda Dressed for Winter

My card today has a Winter theme, in blues and silver, with Christmas roses, holly leaves and berries. Brrr....
Just for a change, I've used Magnolia paper and matched the ink by blending. She is painted in inks and Glamour Dust has been sprinkled at her feet and her hat.
Always use Bazzill textured cardstock for both card and die cuts. It gives a stronger, more professional look.
Swirls are Magnolia dies, others are Joy Craft.
Added pearls for snow, and frilly lace is from my collection....which I love to stroke, and hate to use.
Sob, sob.
That's all for now.
Hope you like this one and see you soon friends.
Its for sale on Ebay if you want to buy it.

Magnolia Tilda With Daisy Sunshade

Hi Everyone

Long time no post !
The last time I used my blog was May 2016.
I've had a rough year or so, but I'm now ready to post my cards again.
Due to the constant encouragement of my friends.
I'm doing this on my phone, so we'll see how it works out.

Let's begin !
Ok, this is a card I made last week, with a cute, new Magnolia Tilda stamp from their Summer2017

The papers are by Maja Designs. Two different collections actually, and that's what I like about Maja. The colours always mix and match, and tone beautifully with distress inks.
I cut the card using Go Kreate dies and added border dies. The pretty top one is Joy Craft, use it a lot. Rose leaves are made with a Magnolia die.
The flowers are mainly from Wild Orchid and lace/ribbon from my stash.

Ok, now the image.

I masked my stamp and added this cute little dog.
Tilda and her dog are painted with distress inks onto Langton Hot Pressed water colour paper. Her lacy socks and daisy have been glittered with Glamour dust, then I made two butterflies, who happen to be passing by...

I hope you like the card.
It's for sale on eBay until Saturday evening.
Thank You For Popping By

Sending Hugs
Christina xxx
