Add some Blue - challenge at LHOSM


Hi there,

Here is my card for the Add some Blue challenge over at 

our sponsors are the wonderful Magnolia-licious and Ribbon Girl
how lucky are we!

This is Watering Tilda coloured with Distressed Inks.
I thought it would be a great image for my daughters birthday in May as she waters her plants before doing the school run with her 2 daughters.

 Spellbinders die for the image, Go-Kreate for the card shape, stamped the tulips(can't remember who's stamp) then hand drew the fence,
the gorgeous Maja Coffee in the Arbour- White Daisies DP
Magnolia Doohickey tag & Butterfly dies, flowers Kaisercraft, lace & seem binding from my craft box & lots of Stardust Stickles.



My daughter loved the card!

Until next time,
happy crafting..

"Anything Goes" Theme over at LHOSM

Hi there,

I've been MIA for a short while, hubby health problems, but I'm back now!

I would like to share my latest card with you for the June challenge over at  

my favourite at the moment Frenchy Tilda...

I coloured her with Distress Inks, and sat her on some french bread sticks which I drew free hand, added a basket stamp for the bread to sit on, I loved playing with this Tilda then came the sticky question what colour to use for a background!!!

The idea of coffee came from the lovely PION 'A day in May' DP, Kraft cardstock,
Magnolia Teacup stamp which I've cut out and the tag is from Maja Coffee in the Arbor, Flowers Kaisercraft, butterflies, lace, ribbon from my craft box.
Go Create & Spellbinders dies.

 

I hope you like my take on Frenchy Tilda I think she is just fabulous!

Until next time,
take care..

Summer Card

Hi everyone,

The theme is Summer for Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia blog May challenge.


I have chosen the lovely new Speedy Tilda stamp from the Magnolia Little Italian collection.

I absolutely love this stamp, I've coloured her with Distress Inks and used magnolia Barbed wire background stamp, giving the impression Tilda is riding in the country with her hair blowing free! 


I've stepped out of my normal colour zone with this one and I am so glad that I did as I love the way the colours have all come together to give a bright, zingy card.

Maja design papers
Go Create card shapes
Magnolia dies
LaLa Land Bridge die
Spellbinders dies
Flowers Craft Heaven
Lace, Ribbons my craft box
Paper Straws Shmick (first time using them on a card)


Until next time
Happy crafting..

Shabby Chic Easel Card


Hi everyone,

The challenge at Simply Magnolia is Shabby Chic,

I have used Olive Tilda from the Little Italian collection.

Tilda is coloured with Distress Inks and again a different colour combination from me - 
(ps I don't like green lol)
but for this one I relented as Olive's are green/purple so it really goes well with the purple flowers.
I was trying to give this card an Olive Grove feel about it, think I might have succeeded especially with the little basket with tumbling olives as Tilda is picking them!


Lots of lace, Frantage, Muslin to give a Shabby Chis feel.

Spellbinders Circle die
Magnolia Tag dies
Maja & Lemon Craft design papers
Flowers a mix from Craft Heaven & Kaisercraft
Stampendous Frantage
and lots of Stickles Glitter glue.

Until next time, happy crafting..

LHOSM Pearls /Gems

Hi everyone,

I would like to share this lovely card for 
Pearls/Gems


I've choosen Magnolia Tilda loves Flowers for this card, she is coloured with Distress Inks, as Tilda is colourful I thought the card might look great in white to show off this Tilda.


I didn't start out to make an easel card, it just sort of happened by itself lol


For the edges of the card I added a little blue to pick up her dress
then the Pink flowers, I found the ruffle ribbon and it just made the card..

This would be lovely for a summer wedding or a special Birthday!

Dies used:
Magnolia Doohickey Tag, Dragonfly, Swirl,
La-La land Fence,
Marianne Design for the Arch piece
Go-Kreate die
Jewelled Ribbon Spotlight
Pearls/Gems from my craft box.

Until next time, happy crafting..
