Virgo Tilda


Today I am here with a card using the gorgeous 'Virgo Tilda'. Weather is rather fresh outside so happily colouring to keep warm!

The challenges I would like to enter my card into are the following-

Tilda's Town Neighbourhood challenge blog - Any shape
Magnolia-licious - things with wings
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes
Boutique Magnolia- Anything goes
Simply Magnolia- Anything goes

So I coloured the cute 'Virgo Tilda' with distress inks.  I used Maja design papers- what a shock! I loved this colour combo together, its just cute!!!

Since the 'things with wings' challenge at Magnolia-Licious was inspired by a new die, I thought instead of using an image with a 'thing with wings' I would use a die and a charm- so I used the cute Magnolia birds die from the Doohickey club and a dragon fly charm. Just to be a bit different!

The dies are all Magnolia except for the shape of the card which is Go Kreate. The ribbon which just peaks out along with the lace from behind the image is from my stash. The shabby chic binding is from Live and Love Crafts.  I used flowers from WOC. To add some sparkle some flat back pearls were used along with a pearl brad, a rhinestone brad and some flat back pearls and rhinstones. I like my sparkle!

The sentiment is off a stamp from La La Land Crafts.

Finally, I used Gesso all over the flowers and die cuts.

Hope you have a lovely day.

Tilda with Koala

Good morning !

Hope we are all well and keeping warm! sounds like the weather is crazy on both sides of the world at the moment. This card is inspired by my citizenship ceremony next month, finally I am going to be an Aussie citizen. So this is my card for the special occasion!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Bunny Zoe Crafts  - Furry Friends
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge Blog- Twine or Ribbon
Time for a Magnolia Challenge- Special occasion
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Pearls or gems - I used a gem stone brad.
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes

For this card I used the very cute 'Tilda with Koala' isnt she adorable with her cuddly fuzzy friend! Love the smile on the little Koala's face! I coloured Tilda and her fuzzy friend with Distress Inks. The papers are from the Kaisercraft collection ' Timesless Classic' . I liked these for this image as I wanted the colours of where I live in the Pilbara in Western Australia- lots of browns, sand coloured tones.

I used Kaisercraft card stock for the brown and orange leaves, these colours suit up here prefectly. The dies are Magnolia, and the shape of the card is from Go Kreate.

I didnt add any flowers as this reminds me of what its like with the trees at the moment, they are losing lots of there leaves and turning a gorgeous orange.

I added a little Koala charm to the fence, isnt he a cutie pie!

The gemstone that I added is a brad, in a subtle gorgeous green.

Hope you have a lovely day!

Hip Hurrah Tilda

Good morning!

Hope everyone is ok out there? Things this end are good, just having a pit stop while waiting for my cake to cool so can ice it so what better to do than a bit of blogging!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges-

All about Magnolia Challenge blog- Lace and Pearls
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Ribbon or twine - I used twine
Simply Magnolia- Dies or punches
Time for a Magnolia Challenge- Special Occasion

So for this card i used an oldie but a cutie 'Hip Hurrah Tilda' from the 'Special Occasion' collection. I coloured little miss with Distress inks. I LOVE this paper, Maja Design you guys know how to make a girl swoon!!!!

I used dies from Magnolia and Tim Holtz. Behind the image you can see some cheesecloth. I added some flowers from Magnolia and also from WOC. The lace is from the fabulous Live and Love Crafts. The twine I picked is in one of my fave colours, this beautiful blush/rose pink which is so girly for twine....how lovely is this colour!!! Beside the flowers, nestled is one of the Live and Love crafts new products, the beautiful Pomegranate apples which are soooo sparkly!

Now, I wanted to make it a bit different so I added a pocket between the layers so the Magnolia die cut tags can be pulled out to reveal the birthday message (it reads happy bday on one and from us as my name is farrrrrrr to long to fit on a little tag with hubbys!) On one of the tags I tied a rainbow charm with the twine as everyone deserves a rainbow on their bday!

On the presents die the edges are distressed with DI 'Vintage Photo' and I added flat back pearls to the edges of it as everyone likes a glammed up present!!!

On the inside of the card is another present in the gorgeous Maja paper.

So boy cards arnt the easiest thing in the world then I saw this stamp- 'Edwin in Miami' and something clicked, a memory from a few year ago when we were on the beach and there was a starfish that was on the sand still alive and hubby popped it back in the water for me so it would be ok. And there is Edwin with his starfish!!! Perfect!

So for Edwin I coloured him with Distress inks. The paper is from Kaisercraft. I used lots of Magnolia dies on this card and also from Impression Obsession.

Now as most people know we have two Hermit crabs for pets, so I found these cool buttons from Dress it up and there was a crab!!! Now I know hubby will like that!!! The other buttons are of shells. I added a shell embellie to the fence and to the cheesecloth behind Edwin I added a starfish charm...kinda had to really!!! The ribbon behind is the perfect 'boy card' ribbon- hessian!

Finally I edged the image with DI 'Tumbled glass' to add to that beachy seaside feel.

Hope you enjoyed your time at the beach with Edwin!
