Sweet Lucia Tilda.....


I hope you are all well and having a good week!

I have fallen in love with the new Magnolia Christmas images just released and just had to have this little sweet Lucia Tilda. 

I have stamped Tilda with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm HP watercolour paper. I have coloured her with distress ink pads. The stickle glue I have added is Star Dust. I also had to buy the Magnolia DooHickey swirl die. This I have distressed with walnut stain. 

The snowflakes are a Cuttlebug die. I have used picket fence crackle paint on two and glimmer misted them with iridescent gold and distressed them with walnut stain. The third one I used some brushed pewter crackle pain and also distressed with walnut stain. 

The bottom  layer of Magnolia paper I have stamped the Magnolia holly swirl onto this  I have then gone over the stamped swirl with sakura clear stardust pen and added dark red sakura stardust pen to the berries. 

The edge of the paper I have distressed with walnut stain and then edged with silver krylon pen.

I thank you all so much for your visit and I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week and a great weekend!

Welcome Christmas....


It is such a cold and crispy morning but with beautiful sunshine here. Hope you too are enjoying beautiful autumn weather. I would like to say a HUGE thank you to you all for your lovely caring wishes for Luca. I told him and he was very happy. The operation went really well and he is back to normal, his happy, bouncing enjoying life to the full self. Your support means so much to me so big hugs to you all!

I got my Magnolia Stamp Club Kit in the post and they are so sweet! Just had to ink up this little sweetie. I have stamped her with Versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm hp water colour paper. 

The flowers are sprayed with iridescent gold glimmer mist. 

I stamped the snowflake stamps with Stazon brown onto acetate and on the reverse side to the ink I covered the image with dries clear glue and sprinkled this with glitter. Then when dry I cut the snowflakes out. I clear embossed the sentiment which I stamped with Aged Mahogany. 

Thank you so very much for your visit and I wish you all a wonderful day!

Summer Treats...........


Hope life is good for you and you are having a great week. 

I have made this card using one of the latest Magnolia images. I have stamped her with Versafine Black Onyx onto Waterford 300gsm water paper. The background is distressed with antique linen and edged with vintage photo. I have coloured Tilda with Distress Ink Pads. I have used a crafting knife and cut around the leaves, clock and flowers on the Websters paper and slipped the image behind these. I have also cut some of the elements from the paper and added these around Tilda. The leaves are punched and embossed and the butterflies are also punched. The stickles I have added are Star Dust.

Thank you so very much for visiting with me. I hope you all have a great end to the week and a great weekend.
