Under the Weather!!

Its another Challenge at MDUC this week and it s a Sketch by Kylie. Dont ya just love a sketch.
Yes the title says it all. Rainy old England.!! It's actually more like April Showers at the moment.Where has the sunny weather gone??? I always did wonder why there wasnt a Tilda for the UK in the Bon Voyage Collection,but I think the one with the brollies are probably them!!!LOL This is 'Tilda in the Summer Rain!' from the new Rainbow Collection.
Ive painted her with Distress Inks 'Weathered Wood'. Ive used Tims Clock Die in the background and distressed with walnut stain. Papers are all Magnolia. The Nesties Ive used are Labels 18.
SORRY BUT BLOGGER WONT LET ME LINK TO CHALLENGES !!GGrrrr So I will try again in the morning x

Guest DT at Basic Grey

I was kindly asked the other week to be GDT for Basic Grey Challenge Blog this month. Thankyou girlies ,I'm honoured to be. Well of course it meant buying another pack of Basic Grey papers!!!hee hee
The Challenge is Shabby Chic in Hot pink and Green. Well I LOVE shabby (even though my hubby said he didnt like my card!!!:(!! )  he just doesnt understand 'SHABBY'!!! LOL
My papers are of course Basic Grey ' Sweet Threads'. I painted Tilda on KRAFT!!! Yes and it worked. I didnt think it would as I havent seen Distress Inks on Kraft before and I thought it would of been a disaster!! I then slapped on Rock candy and Glossy Accents and got a little carried away.!! Ive also used a little cheese cloth on there, which is great for the shabby look.

Have a fab weekend and I'll be back again later today with another card not quite as shabby!

Magical Moments

Hello-I hope you are all having a good week.
Well I couldnt resist having a play when this new little Tilda popped through my door yesterday with some of the new papers! This is 'Wonderful Tilda' from the New Rainbow Collection.

Ive used Tim's Sizzix clock die, which bewarned you are going to be seeing alot of!!hee hee. As Im in the process of making a 'working clock'!! for my craft room,(but that is on hold for now).
All the papers are Magnolia.

Papers i have used are the gorgeous Pion Design.

I have put everything I used over on The Stampman Challenge Blog. Also go check out the rest of the DT's creations. Fantastic as always.

Under The Sea.... Under The Sea

At last blogger is working again. I think the whole crafting world has been tearing their hair out for the last 24 hours!!!!
I had just prepared this post last night and WHAM! it just disappeared.
The style of card I have done today is one I have had my eye on for a while but never found a Tutorial. Anyway my mate KYLIE guided me in the right direction and the TUT is HERE. Go check Kylie's out too, her blog is so gorgeous. Ive done mine 'Debbie's style'!!!LOL

Ive used  Mermaid Tilda. I have painted her with Distress Inks Stormy Sky and Black Soot. For the sides I have used Tim's On The Edge Die Scrollwork as it reminds me of waves.
The flowers I have rolled myself and painted with Crackle Paint Picket Fence.

Papers are Pion Design and I have used Nestabilities Labels 18 which are my faves at the moment. I have also used my Cherry Lynn Doliy Die and you can just see it under the cheesecloth.

Magnolia Down Under Challenge 95

Evening all!!!
Hope you have had a good week.
Today's card is made for this weeks Challenge over on MDUC. The challenge is to use KRAFT on your card and Ive gone a bit mad with it!!hee hee
Ive used the gorgeous MAJA Design papers 'Fika' from Sweden.
Tilda is 'Sneaky Tilda' from the 2010 Christmas Collection. But one which can be used all year round.
Ive painted her with Distress Inks on 300gsm hotpressed  extra smooth Watercolour paper. Ive tried all sorts but this seems to be the best for me. Colours I have used are Dusty Concorde and Stormy Sky.

Ive used Spellbinders Labels 18 which are from The Stampman. Ive also a little cheesecloth on there ,which seems to be all the craze now,with Seam Binding.
The large flower is a Prima flower which I have painted with Distress paint 'Picket Fence' The flowers using KRAFT I have rolled myself.
The sentiment is a Whimsy Stamp.

Just Because

Just a quickie post tonight to share a card I have made for my friends Mum, who had organised a fabulous Garden Party on Saturday to celebrate the Royal Wedding. Wasn't the wedding just beautiful. I was hooked from beginning to end. It was just like a fairytale. My friends Mum Annie, had hung wedding dresses all around the garden from the past,such a lovely touch.  
I was going to put Tilda as a bride on, but then realised I didnt have one!!!!So Ive used Tilda with big ribbon! Papers are a mixture of Pion and Bo Bunny  'Gabrielle'. Ive used Whimsy 'Vintage Postcard' and mini stamps. The flowers Ive rolled myself.

Ive painted Tilda with Distress Inks Weathered Wood.
