Crazy in Love

Hi there :) I am back again today with another card. This card was ordered by a friend of my parents who's grandaughter recently became engaged. I thought this cute stamp of Edwin and Tilda hugging was perfect for an engagement card.

I have used the sketch from  Friday Sketchers #142 for the front of the card. The papers are Basic Grey and Sassafrass Lass.  As this card was for a very special occassion, I decorated the inside as well.

Thanks for stopping by today :) Its getting quite late here now so I am off to bed.

Birthday Tilda

Hi everyone, thank you for visiting today. How is your day going?

This is my third week as a Guest at Cupcake Craft Challenges and the challenge this week is a really fun one - Cake and Icecream! YUM! It gave me a chance to colour up my new "Birthday Tilda" and to try out a "taartpunt" (cake box). I've had the cut file for this for months and haven't tried it out so it was a fantastic opportunity to give it a go.

I've used the Doo Hickey dies "Old Swedish Lace" on the side edge of my card, some of the paper flowers and the leaves.

It is a bit hard to see in the photo, bt the cake and the pink 'satin' parts of Tilda's dress and shoes are all coats in Crystal Effects.

The inside of the card is decorated with a matchng Mini World Birthday Tilda and an old sentiment stamp from Kaisercraft.

And finally, the cake box by itself.  The papers are a mix of Girls Paperie and MME. All of the edges are distressed with Walnut Stain and stitched.

Sorry, there were a lot of photos today! Thank you for staying with me if you have gotten this far :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

King Tilda

Good morning! I hope everyone is well :)

My card today is for Magnolia Down Under Challenges #84 - Distressing.
I have used the adorable "King Tilda" and the balloon background from the You Are So Special collection.

The papers are Prima "Anaalee" and the flowers are a mix of Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia.

Tilda is coloured with Copics (R 85, 83, 81, RV 10, 000). I've distressed all of the edges with my Tim Holtz edge distresser and added some stickles and pearls here and there.

The challenge at MDUC is open until Saturday 8am to enter and we would love to see what you have to show us.

With all my Love

Happy Valentines day!!  Valentines Day is usually a bit of a non-event in our house, lol, but I had a bit of a horrible morning so at lunch time Hubby brought me home a big bunch of pink roses! It was such a lovely surprise, just what I needed to turn the day around :)

Today I have to show you my card for Cupcake Craft Challenges. It is my second week as a Guest DT for Cupcake Craft Challenges, and this week the challenge is.... I Heart You, pretty easy huh? It was the perfect opportunity for me to ink up my new "Tilda with Heart Lace" and cut up the great papers that are part of the new collection as well.

So as you can see, I went a tad heart crazy :) My gorgeous friend Debbie will be pleased, haha!

The gorgeous glittery heart is Melissa Frances and the metal corner is Tim Holtz.

I hope you get a chance to head over to Cupcake Crafts Challenge to play along and to check out what the fabulous DT have created.

Big Ribbon Tilda

Ohh - it is the weekend. Yay! I think we are going to have a quiet one, catching up.

I've had this cutie sitting coloured up for a while and I wanted to try something a little bit different so the card isn't what you would normally see when visiting me, but I hope you like it anyway :)

This is Big Ribbon Tilda from the You are So Sweet Collection recently released. She is just gorgeous isn't she? The amazing papers are Prima "Annalee". I've sort of patched the patterned papers together with some zig zag stitching rather than layering them.

I have stamped the sweet sentiment directly onto the patterned paper as well.. something I really dare to do in case I rock the stamp a little and ruin the entire card! The gorgeous glittery heart is Melissa Frances.

Magnolia Down Under Challenges - "Love" with Amor Tilda

Good morning and happy Sunday everyone! My card today is for Magnolia Down Under Challenges..and the challenge this week is love!

I have used the adorable "Amor Tilda" from the Love Collection 2009. I've been wanting this Tilda for a while and I finally bought her as a little pressie to myself a couple of weeks ago. I think she is adorable.

I've made a circle shaped card and used my Doo Hickey dies to make the paper lace around the edge and the Doily die for one of the layers, Nesties "Classic Circles" and "Lacey Circles" for another layer. I've probably gone a bit nuts and over done the card, but oh well, it was fun to do :)

I wanted to colour Tilda's clothes in Copic colour B52 to match the pretty roses on the paper... but it is one of those lonely colours with nothing lighter or darker to blend with (poor B52, lol) so I used the tip to tip technique to colour the dress and headband.

All of the papers are distressed and sponged with Distress Ink "Old Paper". The sketch is from Mojo Monday and the papers are Magnolia as well. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

Ladybug Tilda goes dotty

Hi there! I hope you're having a great day. I have Ladybug Tilda here to share with you today from the Raising the Ceiling/Right Through my Heart collection from 2010. This was the first time that I've actually coloured this little darling up.
I thought I'd have some fun with my Cricut and cut out the hearts from the Basic Grey June Bug paper pad. The white paper lace is cut with the Magolia Doo Hickey die "Tilda's Lace". The cute sentiment is from the 2009 Love Collection.

All of Tilda's little hearts have had some stickles added. She is coloured with Copics. I've created some grass for little Tilda to stand on and sponged the clouds in the background.

I've punched out little hearts from the DP and some cardstock, stacked them and given them a dose of Glossy Accents.

And of course a little ladybug embellishment to finish :)

Have a great day !
