candle wax tilda

This is a card I made using a Magnolia image from the latest Stampclub kit. I have coloured Tilda with distress inks and added stardust stickle glue. The background is distressed with antique linen and edged with vintage photo and gold stickle glue. I have coloured the little hearts with a sakura clear stardust pen. The flowers have been sprayed with ivory lace glimmer mist and distressed with vintage photo. The grungeboard swirls have been crackle painted with milled lavender and ivory lace glimmered.  Big hugs and kisses to Tab for the delicious lace and one of the scrummy flowers.

I have coloured Hilda with distress ink pads. I stamped her onto 300 gsm watercolour paper using versafine black onyx. I used a nestie to die cut the circle and scalloped circle and added stickles around the edge after distressing the background with antique linen. The paper and flowers are distressed with walnut stain.

Ships Ahoy!

Hello,

Hope your weekend is going well.

pirate edwin ahoy

My card today is using an older Magnolia image of Pirate Edwin. I have masked him over the boat and have 3d the scull and crossbow’s. The flags I stamped twice and stuck them together with decoupage glue to give some depth to them. The bones banner I have added clear crackle paint to give the bones more of an aged look.

I have glimmer misted the paper using silver and distressed this with frayed burlap and added stickle glue stardust.  The sentiment is quickutzed and then I have added stickles. I have also added stardust clear pen to the scull and edge of the tag.

Frozen Saturday……

Hello,

Today I did a little demo at the Craftbarn in Lingfield.  Phillip valiantly tried to clear the drive way yesterday in the hope that I could get out. Then we woke to find more snow! He went out again and managed to break up the ice and get his car off the drive my hero!  He was so lovely and drove me to the Craftbarn for my demo phew!

This is one of the cards I demoed.

Baby it's cold outside..........


Hello,

Oh my goodness how cold is it. Please wrap up and keep warm. Totally marooned in my house now. Can't get off my drive please let it thaw soon!

Thank goodness the snow didn't come yesterday as Claire has been in hospital with baby Isabella and was discharged yesterday. Poor baby has been so poorly. Bronchiolitis with a dreadful ear and throat infection. Claire has been worried out of her life. Thank goodness Isabella is on the mend now so we can start to relax.

My card today is coloured with distress inks. My Magnolia images are from the Magnolia Winter Stamp club. I masked Tilda onto the piano and added the candelabra on top. The background is distressed with weathered wood and I have edged everything with walnut stain. I have added my compulsory stickles too.


Thank you so much for looking. I hope your week is going well and if you are suffering this freeze keep warm!

love

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!


Hello,

I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas! I had a fabulous time with my lovely family, my Grandson Luca had just the best time opening all his presents. He even took some of the Playmobil that I bought for him to bed. There is nothing like seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child is there.

I have made a card today using some of the Magnolia Stamp club stamps. I have coloured my image with distress inks (can't wait for Tim's new distress inks to be released soon). The background is distressed with tattered rose and edged with vintage photo and stickles.

I have punched my border with the ms punch. The flowers and leaves are punched too. The rose paper has been glimmer misted and I have stamped swirls onto the background and paper. The papers, flowers, leaves and sentiment have been distressed with vintage photo.


Thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2010!!!
