Summer Wedding Tilda

Morning everyone,

Happy weekend to you all!

This morning I am sharing my inspirational card for the The Rubber Buggy

I have made quite a plain style of card for me called a Double Dutch fold and stamped up the very pretty Summer Wedding Tilda. I have coloured her with Copics and Spectrum Noir pencils. The Maja papers have been distressed and mounted onto some Cotton Candy Bazzill card. Tilda has also been mounted on the Bazzill card and a Paper Doily. The flowers are 25mm WOC Roses and White Tulips. To finish it off I have made a bow with Pink Sheer White Stitched edge ribbon. the Butterflies are a Memory Box die, but since I made the card Kellie has sold out of them. Just click on a picture at the bottom of this post to take you directly to the product.

Sneaky Tilda

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are having a lovely week. Phil and I both have a week off from work and we went to Bournemouth (our nearest seaside resort) on Tuesday and had a fabulous day out, even the rain held off!  Yesterday I celebrated my birthday, I had a superb day and was totally spoilt by my family. I got some fab crafting goodies and at long last I have some proper pen storage. Unfortunately it was raining again so I  spent some time re-organising and playing in my craft room and was whisked off for a surprise lunch. 

Anyway on with today's challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and this time we would like to see 'Flourishes' on your wonderful creations.

I have stamped up Sneaky Tilda (I think she is my favourite from this collection) and used Copics and Spectrum Noir pencils to colour her and sprinkled some gorgeous frantage around the outside. The papers are by Maja from the Vintage Spring Collection, 2nd May and Vintage Summer Basics, 1924. The heart is cut from a memory box die and the swirl is a Magnolia Doohickeys die.  The beautiful lace, ribbon, cheese cloth and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl. The sentiment is a Joy Crafts stamp.



Copics List:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000, R21
Hair: T8, 6, 4, 2, 0
Dress and Boots: RV99, 95, 93, 91, C5, 3, 1, 0, 00

Today starts a new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia and we would like you to include a charm  on your wonderful Magnolia creations.

This time I have stamped up the gorgeous Tilda with Bow Knot and used Copics and Spectrum Noir pencils to colour her. The papers are called Papermaker by Craftstyle. The shape has been cut from a Go Kreate die, Large Frame Flower #1. The dies at the top of the card are a Magnolia, So Wrapped So Lovely die and I've added some pretty lace and drop pearls. Tucked behind them is some Cheese Cloth. There is a cute Bird Cage charm attached to one of the bows, but it is slightly hidden by the lace.
