Tri Folding Card With A Twist

Good Afternoon Everyone,

This is my floral card, featuring Tilda with fantasy flowers and Tilda with binding flowers, guess the theme? he he x

I have cut a doohickey butterfly and the small doohiceky dragon fly from Maja design papers, the florals are from my own goodies and the little cherub is created from Martha Stewart Clay.

I made up this sentiment to fit the theme and printed it on my PC!

The Paper is Maja Design and the distressed paper corners, leaves and backing paper is Bazzil colour core card. I have distressed the papers with a sanding tool. 

The template can be found here and is from the lovely Norma (From my craft room blogspot) Thank you Norma x 

I hope you like it!

summer time memories - Magnolia Tilda & Announcement!

Hello Everyone, 

How cute is she? 

I won her with stamp and create and I will be guest designer too, please pop back in a couple of days to see my card! 

I have tried to concentrate on shading the skin a little darker, as I intended to use the brown, so she is quite suntanned! 

I've used some of the butterflies from pion design borders and butterflies papers and all other papers are Maja Design, with Wild Orchid Florals.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope to see you in a few days!

Take Care,

White Embossed Tilda With Rose Basket

Hello Everyone

My goodness the weather here in the UK in so miserable, the sky is pure grey, so I decided to finish off my card.

I have used the white embossing technique, that I have seen a few times, it was tricky colouring with copics. As the raised lines can flood, if you lay down too much ink at the start, especially on her hair and it is also a little more tricky to blend too.

All the papers are from Live and Love Crafts, I have cut tags from Pions My Precious Daughter collection and I have used a larger section of Maja Design 'Shall we have coffee' paper for the central panel.

I have added a few of Pions butterflies and a tag to match.

The lovely Gingham Ribbon and Heart Button are from L&L Crafts and have threaded the button and tied the tag with natural hemp twine.

I hope that you like my card, I have been wanting to try this technique for a while and as I said in my last post, crafting is about trying new techniques.

Have a fab week and take care

Ok I know my last card was pink too!!!

Hiya, If your wondering about the title, well, its almost that time to start making Christmas cards and there are alot of Autumn colours about at the moment, I just had to squeeze in as many girly cards as possible 
he he!

I made everything on this card except the doilies and metal corners and it really is something different for me. I masked VirgoTilda with the new summer fence background using my new stamp a majig. It still slightly off, but it was my first attempt, a practice, but I am pleased with it anyway he he.

Isn't that what card making is all about, trying out new techniques etc?

As you can see I have used lots of doohickeys and a little shape abilities flower to make all the florals, swirls and butterfly from Sofiero Maja Papers. 

This picture had to be at a bit of an angle to show how the card looks when its open.

The weather has been all over the show today in the UK, rain, shine, more rain, then just dark, so the piccies are slightly different colours.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderul weekend!
