Tulip Wheelbarrow

Morning everyone!!!

Hope we are all well? Its a very quiet peaceful day here, bit cooler than what it normally is so doors are open and letting the lovely air flow through. The count down is on till the big move so its all go so these 5 mins of peace are worth their weight in gold!!!

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

Paradise of Magnolia- Anything but winter or go full in winter
Magnolia-licious- Winter theme or anything goes
Simply Magnolia- Anything goes
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes with a Magnolia image

So.... I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and do a card using only a background stamp rather than one of our darling Tilda or Edwin's. The image is a fave of mine and thought it would be the perfect Mothers Day card, 'Tulip Wheelbarrow'. I also used the little birds from Magnolia who are just so sweet and bluebirds are gorgeous!

I coloured my wheelbarrow and my birds with Distress inks. The dies are a mix of Magnolia and Go Kreate. I wanted a garden feel to my card and I use dies from the Doohickey clubs to get the leaves and the spade.  I love love love the the Fruit Tree from the 'Special Moment's collection, but I didnt use the tree I used the little fruits that came with it. Isnt the pear adorable!!!

The papers are from First Edition Papers and the collection is called 'Rose Garden'. On the mushroom border I cut different colours for the mushroom caps, i do love this border.

The sentiment is from a La La Land Crafts stamps.

I added some perfect pearls to the butterfly and also the flowers. The ribbon through the hearts is Shabby seam binding which can be found at Live and Love Crafts

On the inside I stamped some little birds.  Finally, to finish off I added a hummingbird charm.

Hope you have a lovely day.

So for this card I had to use Happy New Year Tilda! She looks like she has had a good New Years Eve doesnt she!!! I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. I used papers from Maja Design I love the pink papers with the white poker dots!!!

The dies are a mix of Magnolia, Tim Holtz, Sizzix and Go Create. I added sparkle to the stars, the star border and the Tim Holtz star die by using Fran-tage in 'Shabby White'.  I also added iridescent flat back beads to the stars, and on the 'NY 16' and the around the image.

More sparkle was added with the use of rose pink glitter ribbon.

On the '16' I used some 'Crushed Glass' in silver.  On Tilda's necklace I used platinum perfect pearls. On the bow I added another Iridescent white bead.

On the inside I carried on the party theme by cutting some flags and adding '2016'.

Finally I added some shabby seam rose pink binding to finish off.

Speedy Italian Tilda

Well hello!!! How is everyone!!!! Its been a while thats for sure! But it been chaos as we are moving so its crafting on the hop lol.

So I am here today with a CAS card, not my usual but I am trying to get a handle on them...boy does one need willpower where these are concerned 'nope Davinia put the brad down' that was basically how my afternoon went yesterday!!!

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

The ABC Challenge blog- 'Z' is for Zero- no embellishments allowed- EEKK!

So I used 'Italian Speedy Tilda' from the recent release 'Little Italy' I love this image! Isnt she so vintage but so classy! she is the perfect Italian lady!!! Now I was planning on doing this red and white but it ended up pink lol. The papers are a rose pink/red from First Edition Paper 'Bella Rosa' collection. I love this stripe and it kinda reminded me of the classy crisp style of the Italian women.

I coloured Tilda with Distress inks and the sentiment is from a La La Land Crafts, I thought this sentiment is perfect for Tilda but also as we are moving onto the next chapter and adventure and moving!

And thats it!!!! clean, simple and not an embellishment in sight!

Have a fab day!
