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.

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
