Tilda's Town Challenge #138 - It's About Love..



Hello my dear followers!

I promised that I will be posting more often and here I am with a new creation..
This time for Tilda's Town..
This week's theme is It's About Love..

So.. This is my creation..


I think that at some point we all had a diary where we used to write all our thoughts, problems, love matters etc.
I know I was the most 'productive' when I was in loooovee.. LOL!
With that in mind I made a notebook/diary where you can put all your love thoughts.. Or not..


All these gorgeous papers are from Maja Design..
I don't know which collections they are from cos' I've used all the bottom stripes and have no clue what their names are..
There's a beautiful Heart Doily up there and I've tucked those birdies under the image..
These are from the Doohickey Club Magazine Vol.3..
I didn't glue them down because they are meant to be used as a bookmark..
You can simply pull them out and put them back there when you don't need them..


I made all the corners with my molds and some Fimo..
There's another doily down here..
And some Frantage, pearls, Gesso, lace..
I've used some Vintage Seam Binding for the closing..
The border was made with a Magnolia Doohickey die called Sweet Lovely Lace..


Here are some gorgeous pins, sprays and flowers from my stash..
With a bit of cheesecloth under them and a touch of Gesso on them..


Some more flowers and a tiny butterfly sitting on them..
The postmarks are from Kort & Godt..
And as you can see all the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
The white dots around her are made with Frantage..
I've added two rhinestones in the corners..


Hope you can see all the sparkle on the flowers and on her bandana..


A look from the side..


And here you can see the birdies in all their beauty..
Cute, right?

I know this post is picture heavy but I really hope you enjoyed it..
I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge..
I'm sure it's gonna be amazing..

Magnolia Forever - Challenge #2 - Blue

Great news folks!

I'm here today to show you my very first creation as a DT member for the Magnolia Forever Challenge Blog..
Ain't that fantastic?
I'm so happy!
Thank you ladies for your warm welcome!!!

Our theme for this challenge is Blue..

Here's a gift box with It's Cold Outside Tilda..
Isn't she pretty?


I still haven't been able to colour all the gorgeous stamps from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014 and the new ones are already waiting on my desk..
Oh my.. I wanna colour, colour, colour..

All the papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics Collection..
These are just gorgeous, don't you think?


I made the box out of some white textured paper and some thicker kraft paper and then decorated it..
I've never made 2 boxes of the same size.. I just start cutting here and there regardless dimensions..
This one is a bit smaller but you can still fill it with lots of useful things..


All the dies used on this one are from the Doohickey Club Magazine Volume 2.
Here's the pretty snowflake and the snowflake border under that.. 
There are some pearls, a doily, some cheesecloth and some splashes of gesso here and there..
All the paper edges are distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and machine sewn..


And what about this gorgeous flower??
A fun thing to make.. And sooo simple..
I made it a while ago for the Magazine but since the tutorial wasn't published I might publish it on here, huh? We'll see..
The white thing on there is DecoArt's Snow-Tex.. A great medium for wintery projects..


As always I forgot to take pics of the inside..
And while taking this one, I haven't noticed that the charm turned around..
It's actually covered with some gesso on the other side.. LOL!
There's the Vintage Seam Binding and the intricate border made with a Martha Stewart punch..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both, the ink pads and reinkers..
There's a bit of Glossy Accents on the berries, buttons and hearts on the boots..
The postmarks are from Kort & Godt..
The dots around the image are made with some Chunky White Frantage and I have used my Liquid Applique on the snowflakes..


So.. What do you think?
I'd love to hear your thoughts..
And of course we all wanna see your gorgeous makes..
So join in the fun!

Tilda In Cozy Coat

Hi everyone!
I'm back.. With a new card..


My father needed a Christmas card and I had NONE.. 
Seriously..
I was in such a hurry that I forgot a thousand things..

I forgot to finish everything with Gesso.. I can't believe it.. I only realized it while editing the pics..
And a pearl fell off..
Wanna talk about the colouring?
I forgot to finish the shading around her..

Shame on me.. LOL!
Well.. There's nothing I can do now.. He mailed it out earlier today.. 

Enough with the babbling..
Here are all the details..


This gorgeous papers are from Magnolia.. I've been neglecting them lately but I'm starting tu pull them out of the drawers..
And I've decided to use some dies from the Doohickey Kit vol.2 too..
Can you spot them?


One of the Slender Firs is there too..
And I've used my GoKreate dies for the card's shape and my Spellbinders dies for the image..
At least I did not forget to distress and sew the edges..
There's a doily under there and a square piece of corrugated cardboard that I painted with some Picket Fence Crackle Paint..


Some pearls here and there..
A snowflake charm..
And some beautiful lace..


Tons of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt and Magnolia.. Of course.. 
And some berries, leaves and a bit of cheesecloth..
The snowflake die from the kit is pretty much all hidden under all that stuff..


This cutie from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014 is called Tilda In Cozy Coat..
The dots around her are made with Chunky White Frantage and the snowflakes are covered with Stardust Stickles..
I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the buttons on her coat..
She's coloured with Distress Inks..
Just a few colours really..
But I've added a bit of Aged Mahogany to the cheeks this time, and you know what?
I really like it!!


I would love to hear what you guys think..
Leave me a comment if you can..

And there's one more thing I have to say:
Merry Christmas to you all!!!

Hugs, Tina

Tilda With A Big Big Rose

Hi there!

I want to share with you a card that I made recently..
I've used one of my favourite stamps from the Pink Lemonade Collection 2014..
Tilda With a Big Big Rose..


The papers are from Pion Design and Magnolia and I've used one of my GoKreate dies for the card's shape..
The doily and Vintage Seam Binding are from my stash..


Here's the Tilda Tag Doohickey that I just can't stop using..
And you can also see the gorgeous Pins that I've added..
There are some pearls here and there too..


The layer of Magnolia paper under the image was cut with a Spellbinders die..
You can see lots of WOC and Kort & Godt flowers on this card too..
And a super cute charm and a lovely Bark Heart with some cheesecloth and a little flower on..


The hearts around the image were also made with my beloved Magnolia stamps..
And another thing I love to add on my projects are the flower sprays..
The paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..


Of course there's some gorgeous lace too..
And I've used one of my Magnolia sentiment stamps and a small Wooden Spool to add it..
I've added some Chunky White Frantage here and there and some Gesso..


The image is stamped on my fave 300g aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've also added some Stardust Stickles on some parts to add that extra sparkle that I love so much..
The dots around the image are made with Frantage..


Any questions?
Feel free to ask.. I'm always here if you need me.. LOL!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Have a great one guys!!

Christmas Kitchen Tilda

Yes.. 
You're right..
This is my second post for today..

I'm not crazy..
I just have this cute bookmark that I made a few weeks ago for the Abilmente fair in Rome, and I never got the chance to show it..

I got extremely inspired by my lovely DT friend Camilla S when I saw her pictures from the Magnolia day in Boras..
She held several workshops and each lady made a lovely bookmark..
I said.. I have to make one myself..
And that's how it all started..

I have to admit that it's hard for me not to use all the gorgeous stuff I have in my drawers but how are you going to use this as a bookmark if it's covered with stuff and you can't close the book? LOL!

Enough with the babbling..
Here it is..


The image is called Christmas Kitchen Tilda and it's one of the cuties from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014..
I had so much fun coloring her..


I picked some heavy kraft paper for the base and added some textured white paper and this gorgeous Magnolia DP on top..
The borders are distressed and machine sewn..
There's a light touch of Gesso here and there..


I've cut out the image with my Spellbinders ovals..
There's some cheesecloth under the image and a doily under that..
And I couldn't resist.. I had to add a few pearls.. 


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've used these colours:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Cheeks: Tattered Rose
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress: Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Shoes: Walnut Stain, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Ground: Old Paper, Pumice Stone
Background: Weathered Wood, Old Paper


Can you see all the shiny stuff around there?
Crackle Paint on the hearts, Stickles on the bow and apron, Liquid Pearls all around her..
And of course some Shabby Pink Frantage on the borders..


A hole on the top and a touch of lace and you're done..
How fun is that?

And you know what?
That's the first one for me but I can assure you it's not the last..

Hope you enjoyed!
Tina
