Tilda Shaker Card

Hello Everyone, I hope your enjoying the weekend. Its freezing cold here today in the UK, the perfect excuse for staying in with a hot cuppa and making cards, so here is mine!!!

 As you can see, I have used two of the new edition Tildas. I coloured them both with Prisma pencils, using the LOS Technique.

 I also finally found a use for the little polystyrene balls that come off the Flower Sprays that are from Live and Love Crafts. I knew they would stick to the inside of the acetate, due to the static, so they look like 3D falling snow! Of course I also added glitter too hee hee! Its just not christmas without it!!!

This was a hard card for me to make, as I usually love to use flowers, but the Pion paper is just too pretty to cover up. 
So I've kept it simple with an on the edge sparkling snowflake border and a pretty bow created from beautiful Aqua Satin Ribbon & lace from the Ribbon Girl, with just a few glittery snowflakes dotted about!

I hope that you like my card and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Take care

3D Round Tilda Card

Welcome Everyone,
Just popped on to show you my new card.

Both Tilda and the snowey door background where coloured with Primas pencils, using the LOS technique, which is my favourite!

I have distressed the trees with DI, then Frantaged them and finally added applique for snow phew!!!

The shabby roses are from the ribbon girl and everything else is from Live and love crafts, both links in my sidebar.

I used applique for the snow, but sprinkled glass glitter over it while it was still wet to add sparkle and texture.

The template is available here at Sandra's on line store. As the card is quite deep, I have tied it around the outside with shabby seam binding and tied it in a bow at the top.
The paper is Pion.

Thank you for dropping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Feel the magic!

Good Day Everyone,
Here is my most recent card using an old favourite of mine! She is called magical Tilda with wand.
I get the feeling that she has a beautiful chiffon overlay or top layer to her dress, well, its kinda obvious really, so I have therefore tried to reflect this in my colouring.


This is one of my little hand made pins, that you often see in my cards.

I have coloured her with distress inks and added some little folds to the chiffon colouring.
The little tag is hand made and is suspended from Tim Holtz ideology pin.
I absolutely adore the vintage Autumn basics papers from Maja, they are just stunning.
I felt the little distressed leaf sprays were ideal for this tilda and I have made another of my favourites, tiny butterflies with pearl bodies, they are very sweet.
It is the first time that I have used this bunting, I've distressed it and added a dab of frantage and the same with the little resin dove.
Most of my flowers are from the Ribbon girl, with a two tone cherry blossom from The hobby house.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a fab week.
Take care Jay xxx

My First Ever Book Card?

Hello Again Everyone,
I have another card to share with you, this time I have made my first ever book card.
I'm not a 100% sure, that is the exact name, but you will know what I mean when you look at it hee hee!

The first two picture are of the outside of the book and in the second you can see a slight glint in the top right hand corner, as I have used acetate to create a window.
I have used two lovely little angels from last years nativity collection, they are both coloured with promarkers and prisma pencils, with added stickles.

This photo is of the inside, I have used Magnolia Swedish Lace Borders and Corners and distressed them in Tea Dye and Bundled Sage.
Peaceful Tilda is from the new collection and is stamped with desert sands pale cream ink and is coloured with promarkers and prisma pencils.
I have added a little sparkle with stickles and all the florals are from either the ribbon girl, L&L Crafts or Wild Orchid.
I made the little tassel myself and the book ties on the side with white satin ribbon! Which I think really finishes the design.
I hope that you like my creation.
Take Care

New Card For Fashionista Magnolia & More Challenge

Hello Everyone, Here is my card for the Fashionista "Magnolia and More" Challenge, which has a new theme this time around and it is Christmas Bling It On...

Except it isn't just a card, it is a 2 drawer card! I was thinking of making it into an easel card on the top, but I like the way it turned out, its funny how, you can start off with one idea and the finished product is similar but something else hee hee!
I've used the new North Pole Tilda and added a snowy sign, which is a digi. So yes, I had to cut her out, hair and all! 
The beautiful Taffeta Bow with large crystal in the center, & pearls around the image, all from the ribbon girl. The corners are from Wild orchid and I have used two little green diamontee brads, for the drawer handles on the card, but they push through from the back.

Candy Canes Christmas Saturated Canary

Hello Everyone, I have had a real busy week and didn't have chance to make a card, I sorta made this one over the week!

The beautiful image is by the lovely Krista Smith and she is called Candy Canes, I have stamped her with Tuxedo black ink.
I coloured her skin using promarkers and Copics and prisma pencils for everything else. I haven't used colours for the hair before, but wanted to give it a go, so I used Copics and for the darker shadows, I used prisma pencils. I used Prima's "say it with pearls" along the edge of the image, it also has cute little fimo roses as part of the design and really adds that little touch of bling!
For a change from Maja papers, the red paper is from Magnolia and the top paper is from the Joyeaux Noel collection. I made all of the rolled roses from colour core card, distressing them first and then cutting them, makes really beautiful distressed roses.
All the other embellishments are from my own stash of goodies!!!
Have A Fab Weekend and Don't forget to pop over to The Fashionista Challenge on Monday for Our Peoples Choice Winner and A Brand New Challenge!
