Peaceful Tilda

Hi everyone!
This is my card for this week's LLC 'Wish Upon a Star' theme..


This is Peaceful Tilda from the Magnolia Winter Wonderland Collection 2013..
These gorgeous Pion Design papers are from the Wintertime in Swedish Lapland collection..
I've used GoKreate Large Frames Frilly #1 for the card's shape..


All the paper edges are distressed with a TH tool and then inked with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.. 
Then they are all machine sewn..
The pearls are from WOC..
I've added some cheesecloth and a doily..
I've used some Stickles for her wings and all over the angel wing Doohickey die on the left..


I knew immediately which image I wanted to use and this Magnolia vintage angel was just the perfect addition to this card.. I've covered it with some gesso..
It's the first time I use the Twinklets Diamond Dust but I'm sure you're gonna see it on lots of my projects from now on.. I just love the effect that this dust gives..
And have you seen all those wonderful Frosted Berries in Sandy's store??
I've used the white ones on this card but I just have to have them all.. ;)


There's a mini bag hidden behind the image that holds some Magnolia tags..
I've stamped them with a Christmas sentiment..
The shabby seam binding is a must..
And I really love these bark stars and all these fabulous flowers.


The border die is a Magnolia Doohickey too.. This one is called Christmas Lace..
It's really gorgeous..
And have you seen that I've covered the poinsettias in her basket with Glossy Accents??
This way they really pop out..


Here's another close up of the flowers and heart pin..
These flowers are from WOC and Kort & Godt..
I've laid some Crackle Paint and some gesso here and there..
And I've used some Shabby White Frantage on the DP's..
The lace is almost completely covered but it's the lace Reinette.. My absolute favourite..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks and reinkers..
I've used my new Spellbinders Gold Labels Four to cut out this adorable image..
And of course I had to add some Frantage around the image too..

I hope you enjoyed!
And don't forget to check back tomorrow.. We have a brand new challenge for you..

Tea Time


Hi everyone!
This is going to be a strange post..
I'm mixing all kinds of challenges and things in this post..
I haven't been feeling very well lately and I had to come up with something..

Here's my newest creation..


I love the new Little London Collection 2013 and I couldn't wait any longer to colour my Afternoon Tea Tilda.. She's so gorgeous.. And the Afternoon Tea Bench as well..
The DP's are of course from Maja Design.. This is a sheet from the Autumn Basics Collection and it's so gorgeous on both sides that I decided to go with just this one..


Of course there's some vintage seam binding on the tags.. Those are Magnolia Doohickey's..
And there's a doily too..
I've added some Shabby White Frantage around the image and on the tags..


There's a piece of corrugated cardboard under the image and I covered it with Crackle Paint..
The pearls are a must have and I'm falling in love with all those gorgeous pins, berries and other stuff you can find in Sandy's store..


You cand find the lace and the gingham ribbon there too..
And of course all those flowers and the foam flower buds are just amazing, don't you think?
The frame is made out of FIMO Air with a mould I got on Etsy..


Some more gorgeous flowers on the right..
And let's not forget that awesome charm.. It says 'tea time'.. Love it!
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 and re-inkers..
This is the first time I colour a whole image with only Walnut Stain..
Except for the flower of course.. I've used Aged Mahogany for that one..
The flourishes are from Stempelglede and the postmark is from Magnolia..


I still haven't told you that this card is for the Midweek Magnolias midway reminder..
The theme is song bird and I've chosen a very nice song - Doris Day - Tea For Two..
The other challenge is the Marvelous Magnolia challenge..
We have a Halloween theme this week..
What do you think? I thought it would be nice not to make the usual spooky card.. LOL!

Well..
I really hope you can join both challenges cos' you don't want to miss the chance to win some great prizes..

London Tilda

Hi everyone!
I'm here today with another PINK creation for this week..
This whole week the LLC DT Members have been creating in pink and pink is also the theme for this month's blog challenge..


I couldn't resist.. I just had to use these amazing Maja Design papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection..
They are gorgeous!!!
And how could I not use a Magnolia image..
This is London Tilda from the Little London Collection 2013..


Not sure you can see it properly but the tag is made out of kraft paper and then covered with some Shabby White Frantage..
I used it all around the image too..
The shabby seam binding is of course available in Sandy's store and so are the clay hearts.. Love them..


This is a Marianne Design die..
Of course I've used some GoKreate dies for the card's shape.. Again..
I just get bored when I make a square card lately.. LOL!
Those flower sprays are always a great addition..


All the flowers and berries are covered with Crackle Paint..
The pearl lace with beads and crispy ribbon are an awesome detail..
I always distress the edges with a TH tool and then ink them with Walnut Stain Distress Ink..
All the edges are then machine sewn..


There's a doily hidden under all those layers..
The pearls are there too..
I've covered the raindrops with Glossy Accents to make them pop-out a little bit..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton Aquarel paper and then coloured with Distress Inks..
I bought a few re-inkers lately and I'm using those aswell..
If you wanna know the colours I used for this one feel free to ask..
The postmarks are from Magnolia and Kort & Godt..
