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..
Anyway..


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!

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!
