Tilda In Cozy Coat

Hi everyone!
I'm back.. With a new card..

My father needed a Christmas card and I had NONE.. 
I was in such a hurry that I forgot a thousand things..

I forgot to finish everything with Gesso.. I can't believe it.. I only realized it while editing the pics..
And a pearl fell off..
Wanna talk about the colouring?
I forgot to finish the shading around her..

Shame on me.. LOL!
Well.. There's nothing I can do now.. He mailed it out earlier today.. 

Enough with the babbling..
Here are all the details..

This gorgeous papers are from Magnolia.. I've been neglecting them lately but I'm starting tu pull them out of the drawers..
And I've decided to use some dies from the Doohickey Kit vol.2 too..
Can you spot them?

One of the Slender Firs is there too..
And I've used my GoKreate dies for the card's shape and my Spellbinders dies for the image..
At least I did not forget to distress and sew the edges..
There's a doily under there and a square piece of corrugated cardboard that I painted with some Picket Fence Crackle Paint..

Some pearls here and there..
A snowflake charm..
And some beautiful lace..

Tons of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt and Magnolia.. Of course.. 
And some berries, leaves and a bit of cheesecloth..
The snowflake die from the kit is pretty much all hidden under all that stuff..

This cutie from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014 is called Tilda In Cozy Coat..
The dots around her are made with Chunky White Frantage and the snowflakes are covered with Stardust Stickles..
I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the buttons on her coat..
She's coloured with Distress Inks..
Just a few colours really..
But I've added a bit of Aged Mahogany to the cheeks this time, and you know what?
I really like it!!

I would love to hear what you guys think..
Leave me a comment if you can..

And there's one more thing I have to say:
Merry Christmas to you all!!!

Hugs, Tina

Tilda With A Big Big Rose

Hi there!

I want to share with you a card that I made recently..
I've used one of my favourite stamps from the Pink Lemonade Collection 2014..
Tilda With a Big Big Rose..

The papers are from Pion Design and Magnolia and I've used one of my GoKreate dies for the card's shape..
The doily and Vintage Seam Binding are from my stash..

Here's the Tilda Tag Doohickey that I just can't stop using..
And you can also see the gorgeous Pins that I've added..
There are some pearls here and there too..

The layer of Magnolia paper under the image was cut with a Spellbinders die..
You can see lots of WOC and Kort & Godt flowers on this card too..
And a super cute charm and a lovely Bark Heart with some cheesecloth and a little flower on..

The hearts around the image were also made with my beloved Magnolia stamps..
And another thing I love to add on my projects are the flower sprays..
The paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..

Of course there's some gorgeous lace too..
And I've used one of my Magnolia sentiment stamps and a small Wooden Spool to add it..
I've added some Chunky White Frantage here and there and some Gesso..

The image is stamped on my fave 300g aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've also added some Stardust Stickles on some parts to add that extra sparkle that I love so much..
The dots around the image are made with Frantage..

Any questions?
Feel free to ask.. I'm always here if you need me.. LOL!

Have a great one guys!!
Hugs, Tina

Morning lovelies!

Today is my turn to show you a creation made for the Magnolia Advent Calendar..

This cutie is called Swirly Tilda.. And this is just one of the amazing stamps from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014..
Isn't she just gorgeous?

The papers are from Maja Design.. This collection is called Coffee In The Arbour.. Love them!
I've added a doily as usual and lots and lots of flowers, pearls and gesso..
Some flowers are from WOC and some from Kort & Godt..
But there's something else I want you to look at..
The stunning Chandelier Garland.. Also from Magnolia..

I've used one of my GoKreate dies for the card's shape and the Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles for the image..
All the paper edges are distressed and sewn..
There's also the Tilda Tag Magnolia die that I love so much.. The Hellebores and the Old Swedish Lace.. And let's not forget the Angel Wing Doohickey..
I had to add some seam binding and lace of course..

The image is coloured with Distress Inks..
I've used the same paper as always.. It's the Langton 300gsm.. Good stuff.. LOL!

Have you seen all the sparkle?? But it looks so much better IRL..
There's some Frantage on the edges and tons of Stickles all over the image..

That's all.. For now..

Christmas Kitchen Tilda

Hey guys!

I have this cute bookmark that I made a few weeks ago for the Abilmente fair in Rome, and I never got the chance to show it..

I got extremely inspired by my lovely DT friend Camilla S when I saw her pictures from the Magnolia day in Boras..
She held several workshops and each lady made a lovely bookmark..
I said.. I have to make one myself..
And that's how it all started..

I have to admit that it's hard for me not to use all the gorgeous stuff I have in my drawers but how are you going to use this as a bookmark if it's covered with stuff and you can't close the book? LOL!

Enough with the babbling..
Here it is..

The image is called Christmas Kitchen Tilda and it's one of the cuties from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014..
I had so much fun coloring her..

I picked some heavy kraft paper for the base and added some textured white paper and this gorgeous Magnolia DP on top..
The borders are distressed and machine sewn..
There's a light touch of Gesso here and there..

I've cut out the image with my Spellbinders ovals..
There's some cheesecloth under the image and a doily under that..
And I couldn't resist.. I had to add a few pearls.. 

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've used these colours:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Cheeks: Tattered Rose
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress: Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Shoes: Walnut Stain, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Ground: Old Paper, Pumice Stone
Background: Weathered Wood, Old Paper

Can you see all the shiny stuff around there?
Crackle Paint on the hearts, Stickles on the bow and apron, Liquid Pearls all around her..
And of course some Shabby Pink Frantage on the borders..

A hole on the top and a touch of lace and you're done..
How fun is that?

And you know what?
That's the first one for me but I can assure you it's not the last..

Hope you enjoyed!

And here's my creation for this hop..

I've used Twinkle Star Tilda from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014..
It was love at first sight..
But what can I say.. That's what happens to me every time a new collection comes out..
They are all soooo incredibly gorgeous!!!

These amazing papers are from Magnolia too..
My favourites when it comes to Christmas projects..
The ever present doily is there and so are all those gorgeous WOC and Kort & Godt flowers..

I made the corners with a mold I got on Ebay and some Fimo..
 There's some cheesecloth under those flowers and I've added a snowflake charm too..
I really like adding some brown corrugated cardboard when I'm working with reds..
And a tag is almost a must..

Here are some more flowers, a pine cone, some decorative berries and a gorgeous pin..
I've added some Twinklets Diamond Dust here and there.. Love the effect..

Yes.. This is still my favourite lace..
And another thing I love is this sweet little angel.. Made out of Fimo like the corners above..
There are lots and lots of pearls all over this card and some Gesso here and there too..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
The postmarks are from Kort & Godt..
The tiny dots around the image are made with Liquid Pearls and I've added some Stickles on all the stars..

That's it!

Embossed White Lines Technique

Hi everyone!
How are you doing?

I'm all excited cos' I'm getting ready for the Abilmente fair in Rome next week where Giada and I will be enjoying at the Magnolia booth.. Yayyy!!! Can't wait..
Today I wanna simply thank you for all the excitement you've shown about the Embossed White Lines Technique..

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!!!

I've seen so much cardmakers around the globe using this technique and I'm not just talking about Magnolia fans..
The tutorials are spreading so fast..
Happy me!!

Don't confuse this technique with the white lines that the fantastic Elise Dinolfo does..
She uses an opaque white pen to make the white lines.. Not the embossing powder..

But let's clear things out.. I have called it Tinchy technique a few times but I'm well aware that I haven't invented anything new..
You may remember me saying that a few months ago when I first posted the Tilda with Summer Pants..
So.. I'm not claiming it to be an invention of mine..
I just haven't seen any images coloured this way before and I thought it was funny to call it that way..
So.. No more Tinchy technique..
Call it whatever you want but never ever use this name again.. ;)

For those of you who still don't know what I'm talking about.. 
Here's a quick tutorial..
Only two small pics but that's all that this is about..

I use my VersaMark embossing pad and a white embossing powder I've had for ages..
I can't even find the name of it..

Step 1: 
Apply the embossing ink to your stamp.. Like you would normally do with other inks..
Step 2:
Stamp the image..
Step 3:
Cover the image with your embossing powder..
Step 4:
Tap off the excess..
And if you're like me.. Remove the embossing powder from her eyes with a brush..
Otherwise you'll have some problems making them black..
Step 5:
Heat the image with a heating tool..

That's it!!
Easy, right?

Now grab your DI's, Copics, pencils or whatever you use for your coloring and enjoy!!!

Here are a few collages I made with your gorgeous images my lovely friends and followers..
Hope you don't mind..
I just love them all!!!

***collages removed***

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your support!!
Love you all!!

Edwin With Derbyhat

Hey guys!

I have a confession..
I've been neglecting my Edwins for too long..
But you know what? Male cards are really not my thing..

A good friend of mine asked me to make a card for a gentleman who's celebrating his 60th Birthday..
She said: "..and no lace and no flowers!!!"..
Are you kidding me??

How am I gonna do that? LOL!

I had no choice.. 
Here's my card with Edwin With Derbyhat from the Little London Collection 2013..

Here are some more details..

The papers are from Pion Design and Maja Design..
My absolute favourites when talking about designer paper..
There's a doily and some cheesecloth.. I couldn't resist..
You can also see a light bulb charm and some corrugated cardboard painted with a bit of Gesso and Picket Fence Crackle Paint..

I really wanted to keep it simle so I used two super cute bronze buttons from my stash and some thin natural cord..
I've also added two brads on the corners of the image..
The postmarks are from Kort & Godt..
The paper edges are distressed and sewn..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've only used a few colours this time:
Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Black Soot, Antique Linen and Old Paper..
The dots around the image are made with Chunky White Frantage..

So.. This is my creation for today..
Let me know what you think..

Hugs, Tina

I've finally had the time to finish my notebook with Tilda With Summer Pants..
Remember my 'Tinchy Technique'? No?? Here's the link to the post..
I've seen a lot of crafters all around the globe trying this technique and I couldn't be prouder..
Thank you all so much!!!

You've probably seen this notebook on a challenge blog already..
Well.. Here are all the details..

The papers are from Maja Design.. I just love the Sofiero Collection..
The Viewmaster/Pinweel die is from Magnolia..
And so are some of the postmark stamps I used around..

The lace and doily are from my stash..
The 'You Are Beautiful' stamp is from the Stempelglede Follow Your Heart set..

Here's a close up of the wonderful WOC and Kort&Godt flowers I used..
There's some cheesecloth under those too and I covered them with Gesso..

This fantastic charm is from my stash..
I've added a touch of Gesso on it and again some cheesecloth and a wonderful flower..
All the DP's edges are distressed using a Tim Holtz tool, inked with Walnut Stain and machine sewn..

This cutie is called Tilda With Summer Pants..
It's a stamp from the Pink Lemonade Collection 2014..
The image is stamped on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both the ink pads and reinkers for my colouring..
I used a regular ball pen to colour the eyes..
The small pearls around her are made with Liquid Pearls, the bigger ones are just regular self-adhesive half-pearls..

Well.. That's it guys..
Thanks for stopping by!!!
I really hope you enjoyed..

Hugs, Tina
