Birthday Tilda

Good evening!  Today I'd like to share another card using one of the cute stamps from the Pop Clink Fizz Collection and gorgeous papers from Maja Design's Little Street Cafe Collection,  available from Craft Heaven.

I have painted Birrthday Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  The large cake comes with Happy Tilda and the small one is from the Tilda and Small Cake set.  I have added some subtle shimmer to the cakes and Tilda's trousers using a Wink of Stella pen.

I have used the tassle Doohickey from Volume 5 - still one of my favourite collections!  The lace edged hearts were cut with a Doohickey die that was in the 2019 Advent Calendar.  The seam binding and roses are from Craft Heaven.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Clean and Simple Valentine

Good afternoon!  I have a clean and simple card to share with you today.  It is not often I go for clean and simple, but when I saw these three cuties I thought they'd work perfectly together on a Valentine's card.  These are the new stamps that you can personalise from Magnolia.  Each comes with its own sentiment which you can then add your name too!

This one is Telephone Tilda.  She comes with the sentiment "Made with love from", plus your name (or whatever you wish to add actually).  I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added white spots to her eyes and cheeks with a white gel pen.

Next up is Tilda's Lamp Post.  Her sentiment is, "With Love From", and again you can add your name, or maybe even your town or country!

Finally, we have Royal Post Tilda.  She comes with the sentiment "Made With Love By", and whatever name you wish to add.  Aren't they all cute?  They're perfect to add to envelopes, the back of cards, tags, or to group together as I have done here.

I have added a simple sentiment using a Tim Holt Shadow Press set to complete the card.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

You Are Beary Special To Me

 Good evening!  I'd like to share my latest card with you featuring the gorgeous new stamps from the Valentine Pop Up Box.

I love this Tilda in her little bear suit.  As always I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  The little paw prints are an accessory stamp that come with this Tilda.  They're so cute!

The sentiment, "You are beary special to me", also comes in the set.  I have used the heart tag from Doohickey Volume for the tags.  The papers are the gorgeous new collection from Maja Design, Little Street CafĂ©.  The papers, lace, flowers and seam binding are all from Craft Heaven.

I have used the doily Doohickey behind the image mat and used the off-cut hearts from the tags to decorate the card.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

TOMIC Challenge - Winter

Good morning!  We are back with our first challenge of 2020 over on the TOMIC blog today, and our theme is 'Winter'.  Perhaps it is a good opportunity to get ahead on your Christmas cards already!

I have used Ski Star Tilida from the Waiting For Christmas Collection and painted her with Distress Inks, as usual, before cutting her out completely to add to my card.

I have used the snowflake embossing folder from Magnolia for the background of my card and then added the winter village scene from Doohickey Volume 7 in front of it.

 I have added some white seam binding and a ski charm from Craft Heaven to complete the card.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at TOMIC this month.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.
