Wonderful Wednesday.......

Hello,

I hope you are all good and that life is treating you well. 

Today I would like to share with you a card I made for a very sweet friend's birthday.


I have coloured these Magnolia images with distress ink pads. I masked Tilda in front of this Magnolia fence. I have distressed all my edges with walnut stain. 


I have also decorated the inside.


Here is the inside left. I have die cut the borders, butterfly and leaf swirl using Magnolia's dies. Just love them all, they go so perfectly with Magnolia's images.


I have used a nestie for cutting the bazzill to write my message on.


The stickles I have added are star dust.

Thank you so very much for visting my blog and I wish you all a great rest of the week.

love

Something for you.......

Hello,

Oh I am so glad to be back in blog land. It was horrible yesterday not being able to visit with you. I have a lot of catching up to do.


Today I would like to share a card I have made using Magnolia's Tilda with Amaryllis - Merry Little Christmas Collection.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads. The background has been distressed with pumice stone and the edges have been distressed with walnut stain.


The flower has been die cut using Magnolia's Doohickeys Peony Petals dies. These have been sprayed with glimmer mist, edged with walnut stain and stickle glue. The leaves are a Magnolia Doohickey Leaf die.


I have decorated the inside too.


Here is the inside left which has another die cut flower.


Here is the inside right. I used EK success punch for the tiny flowers and liquid pearls dotted around the paper edge.


The stickles I have added are star dust and I have also added Sakura clear glitter pen too.

I am putting this card on Ebay here later if you are interested.

Thank you so very much for visiting with me. I wish you all a most wonderful weekend!

love

Happy Days........

Hello,

I hope you are all well and have had a good week.

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made.


I have coloured my image with distress ink pads and stamped with versafine black onyx. The background is distressed with pumice stone and the edges of this and all my papers have been edged with walnut stain. I have added some delish material that my sweet friend Chris sent to me on my card. Thank you so much Chris I love it!


I have decorated the inside of my card too.


Here is the inside left. I have used Magnolia's Dohickeys dies for the swirl and the border.

Here is the inside right. The square for a sentiment to be written on is a nestie die. The swirl stamps are Prima.


Here is a close up of the flower detail. I have added star dust glitter glue for some lovely sparkle.


I will say goodbye now. Thank you so very much for visiting with me, and for all of your comments I say a huge thank you. You absolutely make my day you are very kind.

I will be putting this card on Ebay later if anyone is interested.

Have a wonderful weekend!

love
