ALL ABOUT MAGNOLIA - BINGO

Good morning crafters
 

Happy Monday!

Here is my DT card for our mid-way reminder at

 
 You still have 2 whole weeks left to enter and this month we are playing BINGO!

 
My card uses the last line downwards - Bling, Ribbon, Metal.
 
The papers are Pion  - Paris Flea Market, also used to make the butterflies using a Joy Craft die. I added  some "bling" with glamour dust and tiny pearls and arranged them around another fancy circle die, also from Joy Craft, and a doily.
The "metal" is two butterfly charms. One has been coated with gesso and glamour dust. The other hangs from some pearl string.
The "ribbon" is a double seam binding bow with lace and a "Bling "embellishment.
 
Everything on my card can be found at Live & Love Craft 0r
The Ribbon Girl.
 
 

Just choose a row of three boxes in the grid below. You may choose a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row or all of them to make a "full house"!

 

 
So, my card stars Tilda with Flower Basket.
She was painted with distress re-inkers, glittered and stitched. I've used liquid pearls around her.
 
 
Thank you for all your lovely comments.
They mean the world to me.
 
Until next time, take care.
Hugs

Tilda's Town Challenge # 164 - Anything Goes

Good Morning Friends
 
 I am here today with my DT card for TILDAS TOWN.
This week we have the ever popular theme of
ANYTHING GOES.
 
The lucky winner will get a  $10 Gift Certificate to Tilda’s Town online store to spend on any thing they like!
 
 
 
This card uses one of my favourite stamps, Puppy Love Tilda. 
 
 
 The papers are gorgeous Maja Design. For me, the quality of these papers and the spectacular vintage design is hard to beat. I rarely use anything else. These are from the Vintage Baby collection.
I've stitched and inked the edges of the die-cut papers, adding a doily and a Marianne chain of stars.  Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts with added leaves cut with dies from Magnolia Doohickey club 7. The blue satin ribbon has been given some "Bling" with a sparkly button from my stash.
 
 
I have painted Tilda with distress re-inkers, adding a little white with a gel pen, some glamour dust and liquid pearls in her hair and background. Just peeping behind the image is a little cheesecloth which isn't easy to see here.
 
I would love you to join in with our challenge this week!
 
I will be back on Monday when we start a brand new challenge over at All About Magnolia.
 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Hugs

Magnolia Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda

Hi Everyone

Sitting here fresh from the dentist, with a top lip the size of a large gob stopper! Root canal treatment has taken it's toll...and another one to look forward to next week. Oh joy!
 
I have been making a few Christmas cards lately. I love making them, even though it's summer. There is always a time for snow in my head. I do feel a bit silly singing carols though, but I can't help it. Ear worms!
 
"Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda," is a favourite of mine and when she is glittered and be-jewelled, she always looks good. I have matched her to pretty Maja Christmas papers, cut with
Go Kreate dies. The edges have been inked and stitched.
 
 
I've used Magnolia dies for the snow flakes, cut in both kraft and white Bazzill card, then covered with snow-tex and glamour dust. A doily peeps from behind the second paper. The pretty die at the very back and the deer at the bottom are both Joy Craft dies. 
The white poinsettia is a Prima embellishment, I added some sparkly stamens and some snow-tex'd leaves. The organza bow holds a sparkly diamant√© snowflake, I love these!
Most of the embellishment's used are to be found on The Ribbon Girl or Live and Love Crafts.
The lace was kindly sent from  Jules Ribbons and Cards.
( Perfect for cards as it's stiff enough to hold it's shape )

Tilda was coloured with distress re inkers. I have used liquid pearls dotted inside the poinsettias, around her and on the deer.

I will be back at the weekend with my Tildas Town DT card.
stay safe and well 'till then,
Hugs

Tildas' Town - Celebrate

Hello Everyone
 
 I have been neglecting my card making lately and spending more time with my family and friends.
Summer is my time for life outside of the craft room and I like to make the most of the light evenings and beautiful  weather.
There will be plenty of time for crafting in the  Autumn because time passes so quickly, doesn't it.
 
This is my DT card for Tilda's Town where the theme this week is Celebration.
This is Windy Tilda.... I don't know why I am laughing. It's the way she's sitting..... my childish sense of humour!
 
 I have coloured her using distress inks. The papers are by Maja and they are stitched and inked. Flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbon and Heart are from my stash and that Gorgeous lace is from Jules at her ribbon shop Jules Ribbons and Cards
 
Have a lovely week.
Hugs
Christina
