Abilmente Vicenza & Hobby Show Milano

Hello guys!
It's been quiet around here..
But I have a good reason..
I've been lucky enough to get the chance to go to two amazing craft fairs..
I'm talking about Abilmente Vicenza and Hobby Show Milano..
I'm sure my italian followers know exactly what I'm talking about..

There are no words to describe how happy I am to be able to go to these events and represent Magnolia.. The most amazing company in the world!!! <3

I don't need to tell you that I had a great time on both fairs..
Another super talented lady was with me in Vicenza..
Giada.. I miss you already babe.. 

Thanks to everyone who came by.. And thank you for all the sweet presents..
I will treasure them forever..

Here are some pics for those of you who couldn't be a part of this..

Keep your eyes open..
A new collection is coming out soon..
And it's amazing..
Here's a sneak peek..

You can already start planning a trip or two in Italy in October cos' we will be back!

Loves Me Loves Me Not Tilda..

Hey guys!

Oh my.. Time flies when we have a good time, doesn't it?
I'm back from the Abilmente Vicenza fair in Italy and it was a blast.. Like always..

I made a card that I haven't shown on my blogs and today I finally have the time to share it with you all..

Not really my colours, huh?
But I wanted to make something different..
These gorgeous papers are from Maja Design..
The flowers from Magnolia, Prima and WOC..

It's the first time I use my Magnolia Rose Leaf die..
I used some white textured paper to cut them out and then added the colour with some Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls Mists on top..
They are soooo gorgeous and sparkly IRL..

Here are some tags that I made with the dies I got in the Magnolia Doohickey Club Magazine Volume 3..
The Chandelier Garland is also from Magnolia..
The doily and pearls are from my stash..
And so is the Vintage Seam Binding..

I've added some Lace Antoinette and another gorgeous die-cut..
And there's the super stunning Key Charm too..
The holes are filled with some Liquid Pearls..

The postmark stamps are from Magnolia..
I've added some Gesso here and there and some cheesecloth under the flowers..
The dots around the image are Liquid Pearls as well..

The image is coloured with Distress Inks..
Nothing new here..
And all the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..

Some Stickles on the dress..
And a bit of Glossy Accents on the flower centre..

You can find the links for some supplies in list below..
Thanks for stopping by!
I really hope you enjoyed!

Hugs, Tina

You Are My Valentine..

Hey peeps!
I'm late with everything these days..
But I'll be soon back on track with all my commitments..

I made this card for two challenge blogs..
And I missed the deadline for both..
This sucks..

My first Valentine card for this year..
It's all about love all around blogland and we have a Love is In The Air challenge at Magnolia Forever and a Valentine theme at Paradise of Magnolia..

This is You Are My Valentine Tilda Duo from the latest Lovely Duo Collection 2015..
Ain't she amazing?
The beautiful paper used for this card is also from Magnolia..
It's called Arrow Heart..
The heart doily and Vintage Seam Binding are from my stash..

This gorgeous swirl is from the Magnolia Doohickey Club Magazine vol.3.
I've added lots of pearl all around the card..
And how could I not add some gorgeous lace and this super cute heart ribbon..

The Eiffel Tower die is from the same vol. as the one on the previous picture..
The oval I used for the image is a Spellbinders die..
I'm sorry but I can't find the name of the text stamp.. LOL!
All the paper edges are distressed and sewn..

Here's a gorgeous corner made out of Fimo..
And you can see the beautiful Old Sweedish Lace die..
All the flowers are from WOC except for the two brown ones..
These are from Magnolia..

The image is stamped on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I don't use many colours..
You can see that they repeat a lot..
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Cheeks: Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress: Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Boots: Pumice Stone, Walnut Stain, Black Soot
Hearts: Aged Mahogany, Black Soot
Background: Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone
Ground: Old Paper, Pumice Stone

It's shiny..
Some Stickles on the wings and Glossy Accents on the hearts..
The dots around the image are made with Chunky White Frantage..

Hope you can find the time to create something pretty and join us in these great challenges..

I'm enterign this card into the following challenges:

Tilda's Town Challenge #140 - Freezin' Season...

Hey guys!
I know that I'm late with this post but the flu got me..
It's that time of the year.. I know.. 
But I usually don't get these nasty things..
I have enough health problems all year long.. LOL!

Well.. Hope this post works as a reminder for the new Tilda's Town Challenge..
The theme is Freezin' Season..
And that's how I look like these days..
I spend my days in my favourite onesie..
We don't have any snow here but it's pretty cold outside..
I checked the temperature on the balcony.. LOL!

I made a mini greeting card with one of my favourite images from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014..
She's called Little Cute Tilda..

I've used my Magnolia Vintage Squares for the card's base..
The papers are from Maja Design..
Here you can also see my beloved Tilda Tag with some Vintage Seam Binding on..

I thought the base paper was pretty plain so I've decided to use a Memory Box stencil and some texture paste and decorate it a bit.. I really love the final result..
All the flowers on this card are from WOC..

Here you can see a bit of the Old Swedish Lace die peeking out.. And my gorgeous lace Estelle..
I've added some cheesecloth under the flowers to fill in the gaps..

And how cute is this button??
I looove it..
I've added some Gesso here and there.. As always..
And some pearls..
Of course.. All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..

Here she is in all her beauty..
Cut out with my Spellbinders Ovals..

I've coloured her with Distress Inks..
Added some Stickles on some parts of the dress..
And all that stuff around her is Shabby White Frantage, self-adhesive half pearls and some Liquid Pearls..

Hope you enjoyed your stay.. LOL!

I'm entering this card into the following challenge:
