Little Italy

Hi there Maggie friends, 
How are things going?  My little guys went back to school this week and it is so quiet around the house! 

The new Little Italy Doo Hickey dies arrived in my mail box today... so cute! 
I've used "Oregano and Basil" and "Parsely and Rocket salad" for this card. 

The stamp is "Venice" from "With Love" collection of 2013

I've coloured the image to look a bit old and sepia. 

Well .... there is more to come! I'd better get colouring ;)

Sweetness Angel Tilda

Hey there, 
I had a massive clean up of my craft room this weekend - wow - how on earth did I manage to accumulate so much stuff? It is a really good feeling to clear it all out and actually realise what is in there. I could actually see my desk for once, well, for a little while anyway ;) 

Still having fun playing with these new stamps over here.... This is Sweetness Angel Tilda from the new A Touch of Love collection. 

I have coloured her with Copics and fussy cut. She's really cute! I think she has to be my favourite for this collection.. but I still have a few more to colour yet so that is still open to change. 

The papers are Kaisercraft. Die cuts are a mix of Magnolia Doo Hickeys and Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts. 

Ribbon and flowers are a mix from Ribbon Girl and Live Love Crafts. 

My little guys are still home on summer school holidays..... three weeks to go! 
They've been enjoying a few crafty days too. 

I'm sure I'll be back with another card orr project to share soon.
Until then, have a great week xx

Cloudy Tilda

Hi all...
I've been playing with the new stamps from the A Touch of Love collection :) Aren't they all just adorable?  This one in particular stood out to me and I had to colour her first. 

Meet Cloudy Tilda.

I'm back colouring with my Copics. I missed how easy they are to blend with. 
The background paper is Magnolia.  The cute sentiment "I'm right here with you" comes with the stamp club if you had preordered it... otherwise, they will be available soon at your favourite retailer or Magnolia's webstore ----->  HERE

This is a bit of a CAS card for me, not much on it other than some die cuts, twine and rhinestones (in this case, Magnolia Knick Knackeries).

Did you pre-order the stamp club?
I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with these cute new stamps!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year friends!
Starting off the new year with a pretty little card. 

Again Tilda has been water coloured. Still practising. 
She is such a sweet little stamp. I was getting impatient waiting for the new stamp club to hit my mail box with the Christmas mail and public holidays so I pulled out this older one to play with. 
She is from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection of 2012.

The papers are from Maja Design. Lots of different dies to embellish as well. 

I am entering challenges:

I hope you had a lovely New years eve whatever you were doing. 
I did finally receive the new stamps so I have been playing with those too.... I hope to have something to share with you soon.

Rose cake time

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. 
Ours was very relaxing. 

I spent a little time at my craft desk whipping up a little birthday card with this sweet Tilda "Rose Cake" from the Boho collection. 
The papers are a bit of mix, as are the die cuts.
The card edge has been punched using a MS punch around the page set. 

Little Tilda has been painted with DIs... yes I still need a lot of practice. She was stamped using Memento Summer Sky ink to give the 'no lines' look.  I've used Archers "Smooth" Watercolour paper.

I really like this stamp. I've always wanted to try a Swedish Princess cake :) 

I am joining the following challenges:
