Embossed White Lines Technique

Hi everyone!
How are you doing?

I'm all excited cos' I'm getting ready for the Abilmente fair in Rome next week where Giada and I will be enjoying at the Magnolia booth..Yayyy!!! Can't wait..
Today I wanna simply thank you for all the excitement you've shown about the Embossed White Lines Technique I used a few months ago..

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!!!

I've seen so much cardmakers around the globe using this technique and I'm not just talking about Magnolia fans..
The tutorials are spreading so fast..
Happy me!!

Don't confuse this technique with the white lines that the fantastic Elise Dinolfo does..
She uses an opaque white pen.. Not the embossing powder..



But let's clear things out.. I have called it Tinchy technique a few times but I'm well aware that I haven't invented anything new..
You may remember me saying that a few months ago when I first posted the Tilda with Summer Pants..
So.. I'm not claiming it to be an invention of mine..
I just haven't seen any images coloured this way before and I thought it was funny to call it that way..
So.. No more Tinchy technique..
Call it whatever you want but never ever use this name again.. ;)

I'm still happy that you loved it and that so many of you tried it..

For those of you who still don't know what I'm talking about.. 
Here's a quick tutorial..
Only two small pics but that's all that this is about..


I use my VersaMark embossing pad and an embossing powder I've hade for ages..
I can't even find the name of it..
So..

Step 1: 
Apply the embossing ink to your stamp.. Like you would normally do with other inks..
Step 2:
Stamp the image..
Step 3:
Cover the image with your embossing powder..
Step 4:
Tap off the excess..
And if you're like me.. Remove the embossing powder from her eyes with a brush..
Otherwise you'll have some problems making them black..
Step 5:
Heat the image with a heating tool..

That's it!!
Easy, right?

Now grab your DI's, Copics, pencils or whatever you use for your coloring and enjoy!!!

Here are a few collages I made with your gorgeous images my lovely friends and followers..
Hope you don't mind..
I just love them all!!!

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your support!!
Love you all!!

Tilda's Town Challenge #129 - Anything Goes

Hey guys!

I've been neglecting my Edwins for too long..
But you know what? Male cards are really not my thing..

A good friend of mine asked me to make a card for a gentleman who's celebrating his 60th Birthday..
She said: "..and no lace and no flowers!!!"..
Are you kidding me??
How am I gonna do that? LOL!

I had no choice.. 
Here's my card with Edwin With Derbyhat from the Little London Collection 2013..


I've decided to use this card for Tilda's Town new challenge Anything Goes..
Here are some more details..


The papers are from Pion Design and Maja Design..
My absolute favourites when talking about designer paper..
There's a doily and some cheesecloth.. I couldn't resist..
You can also see a light bulb charm and some corrugated cardboard painted with a bit of Gesso and Picket Fence Crackle Paint..


I really wanted to keep it simle so I used two super cute bronze buttons from my stash and some thin natural cord..
I've also added two brads on the corners of the image..
The postmarks are from Kort & Godt..
The paper edges are distressed and sewn..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've only used a few colours this time:
Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Black Soot, Antique Linen and Old Paper..
The dots around the image are made with Chunky White Frantage..


So.. This is my creation..

I've finally had the time to finish my notebook with Tilda With Summer Pants..
Remember my 'Tinchy Technique'? No?? Here's the link to the post..
I've seen a lot of crafters all around the globe trying this technique and I couldn't be prouder..
Thank you all so much!!!


You've probably seen the notebook on the Tilda's Town challenge Blog already..

The papers are from Maja Design.. I just love the Sofiero Collection..
The Viewmaster/Pinweel die is from Magnolia..
And so are some of the postmark stamps I used around..
The other postmarks are from Kort&Godt..


The lace and doily are from my stash..
The 'You Are Beautiful' stamp is from the Stempelglede Follow Your Heart set..


Here's a close up of the wonderful WOC and Kort&Godt flowers I used..
There's some cheesecloth under those too and I covered them with Gesso..


This fantastic charm is from my stash..
I've added a touch of Gesso on it and again some cheesecloth and a wonderful flower..
All the DP's edges are distressed using a Tim Holtz tool, inked with Walnut Stain and machine sewn..


This cutie is called Tilda With Summer Pants..
It's a stamp from the Pink Lemonade Collection 2014..

Tilda's Town Challenge #117 - Flowers On It..

Hi everyone!
I'm finally able to write this post..
I know I'm pretty late but I hope this works as a reminder..
We have a fantastic challenge running over at Tilda's Town this week..
It's really simple.. Flowers On It..


I made a gift bag for a Baby Boy this time..
I never get tired of using this one on my creations.. LOL!


I've used some blue organza ribbon for the handles..
The image was cut out using a Spellbinders Oval and I placed a matching Scalloped Oval under it..
The next layer is the cheesecloth..
And then a doily..
Some gorgeous patterned paper cut with a GoKreate die..
And again some cheesecloth and two more layers of paper..


I've used a lot of homemade embellies on this one..
The corners are made with a mold I bought on Ebay..
Then there's the frame..
And I've also made a cute little sitting angel and placed it on one of the corners of the frame..
Cute, right?


There are tons of flowers and berries all over the place.. All covered with some gesso..
And there's (of course) some beautiful cotton lace too..
I love, love, love the shabby organza trim with pearls too..
All the papers are from Maja Design..


The sentiment is from Stempelglede..
There's even a cute little pacifier laying there..
There are also some paper flowers with pearls here and there..
I made those with a Martha Stewart punch..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
The flourishes around the image are made with a Stempelglede stamp..
All the paper edges are distressed with some Walnut Stain and machine sewn..
I've used some Chunky White Frantage around the image and some Stickles on the wings..


You can find this and many other items for sale in my Etsy shop HERE..

Hope you can join us in this fantastic challenge..
Don't forget..
There's a fantastic prize up for grabs for one lucky random winner..

Goodbye LLC

Hi everyone!
Did you miss me??

This is a very sad day for me..
I hate goodbyes but it's time for me to leave the amazing LLC team..
As you might already know these past few months have been pretty tough for me..
My health is slowly improving but I'm frequently too tired to sit there and colour, cut, glue etc..
But I'll be back.. Top speed.. Very, very soon..
I promise.. ;)

Let's move on..
Here's my last project for the Live & Love Crafts blog..


I used my GoKreate dies for the card's shape..
And I really wanted to show you these gorgeous new Maja Design papers..
They are so incredibly beautiful, aren't they?


The flowers on this card are from WOC and Kort&Godt and I love them to bits..
And there are some berries and flower sprays too..
The tag is a Magnolia die and I added a little bit of white Shabby Seam Binding on it..


Here's one of the super cute Clay Hearts and the lovely Maya Road Love Heart Clip..
There are lots and lots of pearls all over the place..
And there's a doily under there too..


Of course I had to use some beautiful Lace ''Reinette'' and a charm.. 
My beloved Butterfly that I decorated with some rhinestones and a bit of gesso..
The Ornated Circle under the image is from Marianne Design..


Here you can see some more stunning flowers and some cheesecloth sneaking under those..
All the paper edges are distressed using a Tim Holtz tool and some Walnut Stain Distress Ink..
I cut the image out with a Spellbinders Circle..
The postmarks are from Magnolia and Kort & Godt..


The image is coloured with Distress Inks..
The white dots around it are made with Frantage..
I've added some Stickles on their bows..


Well..
I just want you to know that I've enjoyed every second on this amazing team and it's been a pleasure to work with Sandy and all the other ladies!

I promise it won't be long till I post again.. ;)

Have a great Eve everyone!!
And of course.. Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Tina
