Tilda with Chanel the Puppy

Tilda with Chanel the Puppy
 
 I am so enjoying this beautiful summer weather.
All the same, my craft room calls to me and I had to make a card. This one uses another of my new stamps. They are so sweet! 
  I used distress re-inkers on Langton hot pressed, Grain Satin paper and Pro-Arte Polar brushes.
 

The papers are Maja - from the Sofiero collection.
 I love the soft pastel colours and ditsy patterns on these papers, they are so pretty.
They are distressed, inked and machine stitched.
 For the inside square, I've used an X Cut die - cutting three strips and joining them together.
The lovely lace and ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl. I added a clear heart to the centre of the bow.
All the pink flowers are available from Wild Orchid Craft.
The metal corner and the resin butterfly have been heat embossed with Fran-tage - Shabby Pink
I also used a tiny amount around the image and Glamour Dust on the bows and petticoat.
 
 
I hope you like her. Thank you for looking in.
Hugs

Strawberry Tilda

STRAWBERRY TILDA 
 
Strawberries are my favourite summer fruit and as Wimbledon approaches, I am sure many of us will be eating strawberries with cream.
For this card I rescued an older Tilda stamp and used Copics to colour her.
The paper is Magnolia, distressed and stitched.
The strawberry charm was a bargain Primark find.
 The strawberry flowers are paper blossoms and the leaves were cut
 with a Marianne die.
The rose ribbon and pearls are all from the Ribbon Girl.
 

 
 
Enjoy your strawberries this summer. 
Hugs

Tilda with Lace Pants

Tilda with Lace Pants

First I must make a big apology for going AWOL for a while.
 A series of unfortunate events meant I had no time to make cards.
Then I came down with shingles and became out of order for a few weeks.
But just back from a lovely holiday in Turkey and I'm ready to reach for my Tilda stamps.
I still have a few new ones to ink.
I made this card post shingles and pre holiday.
Totally fell in love with her cuteness.
She was coloured with distress inks and I used postmarks on the edge.
The papers are from Maja as per usual, all distressed, inked and stitched.
I think most of the lace, ribbon and flowers were from the Ribbon Girl.
There is a doily behind Tilda,
Border -  Do-Crafts  die.
Flags - La-la land die.
So, that's all from me just now.

A Card For a May Birthday - Magnolia, Garden Fairy Tilda

Hello
 
Another beautiful Spring day.
 The April sun is streaming down here in Kent and boy, does it feel good!
 
This is a pretty card using Magnolia Tilda the Garden Fairy.
 
 The papers are Maja, distressed, inked and stitched.
With additions of Pearl stringing, lace and flowers from The Ribbon Girl.
 
Tilda has also been inked, distressed and stitched. She was coloured with Copic Inks and her wings are glittered with fine Glamour Dust, as all wings should be.
 
I hope you have a great week.
Hugs
