All About Spring

ALL ABOUT MAGNOLIA ~ ALL ABOUT SPRING
 
Hi Magnolia Fans
It's time for a mid way reminder for
ALL ABOUT MAGNOLIA
 
I am a little early for this post, but have a lot happening in the next week so I need to post today.
 
The challenge is SPRING, Yay!
This is 'Tilda with Spring lamb', painted with distress inks and surrounded with pink pearl string. The papers are Maja, stitched with Magnolia die-cuts of leaves, grass and fence.
The cute lamb is jointed and has rhinestones. I found it in a little everything shop in London and couldn't resist it. It dangles from some blue seam binding. The lace, ribbon and pearls are from the Ribbon Girls.
 
Have a lovely Easter
Hugs

INKY CHICKS - HAPPY EASTER

HAPPY EASTER !
 
Happy Easter from the Inky Chicks.
Yes, it's time for a new challenge and the theme is
Happy Easter!
 
 For my card I used a Magnolia stamp. Tilda with Hanging Rabbit.
She has been painted with distress inks and surrounded with pearl strings. This Maja paper was a limited edition and sadly this is my last piece...sob. I inked and stitched the pieces, used cut up dies for a background and added some delicious flowers with splodges of gesso and glamour dust. The lace is from the Ribbon Girl, Leaves and grass are Magnolia dies.
Do you like my little jointed rabbit, I set him dangling from some seam binding.
 
So, that's all from me for a while.
Have a wonderful Easter and don't forget to join in our Inky Chicks Challenge.
Hugs

TILDA BAKES CAKES FOR MOTHERS DAY

Today is Mothers Day in the UK and so I have made a card celebrating Mums, who bake delicious cakes, covered in sweet pink icing and cream.......just like these!
 
 Over at SIMPLY MAGNOLIA we have the theme of DIES.
This shaped easel card uses many dies. I have counted two GoKreate, Three Joy Craft and two Magnolia.
I've painted Tilda with Tim Holtz distress inks, adding sparkle with glamour dust and stickles to the fancy bits.
The pretty lace, seam binding ribbon and embellishments are available from The Ribbon Girl and the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
 
Have a Lovely Week
Hugs

INKY CHICKS CHALLENGE - RIBBON and or LACE

HI EVERYONE
 
So sorry this post is late. I haven't been well lately and my energy levels are  non existent. Hopefully I am near to finding a diagnosis as I have felt much too ill to craft and as most of you know, that's not like me at all.
 
So on to my card for my beloved INKY CHICKS, yay!
The theme this time is RIBBON and/or Lace.
A lovely one!
 
Here's little Tilda in her garden, coloured as usual with distress inks and with a glittery spade.
 
The papers are from two different Maja collections, but you can easily do this with Maja as the colour range is so similar. The card was cut with GoKreate dies and stitched. I have used some embroidered lace which I gathered and then added a border. The fence, grass and stems are from Magnolia and the flowers are from Live and Love Crafts.
 
It will soon be Spring and we will all be able to be in our gardens like Tilda. I can't wait myself !
 
Have a lovely, sunny week.
Sending you big Hugs,
Christina
