What a lovely day!......


Hope your weekend is going well and the weather is being kind to you. It is warm here and in the afternoons the sun shines beautifully. 

I had the best day yesterday demoing the new Doohickey dies from Magnolia at Crafts U Love. Thank you so very much to all the ladies who came to say hello. It was such a pleasure to meet you all. You are just the loveliest ladies ever! I was so very lucky to sit next to Caroline aka Stamping Caz who is just such a sweet and talented girl. So a big thank you to you all for making it such a wonderful day!

This is one of the cards I made for the demo. I stamped Tilda with Archival coffee onto 300gsm water colour paper. The background has been distressed with Old paper. I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads. The papers have been distressed with Tim's distressing tool. I embossed the Lace border Magnolia Doohickey die instead of die cutting it. Then I distressed this and everything else on the card with vintage photo. 

I used the Tag die which I hid behind Tilda.

Here is the flower I made out of the Magnolia Peony Petals dies. I sprayed the paper with Iridescent gold glimmer mist, curled the petals and added vintage photo and Star Dust stickle glue. You can see the leaf die peeking out behind the flower. The centre of the flower is a punched Martha Stewart flower which goes so well with this die.

Well thank you so much for visiting me. I wish you all a wonderful week!
