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:

Hugs, Tina

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!
