Tilda with Early Bird..

Good morning everyone!
Here's a new project for the TOMIC Blog that I hope brightens your day..

The papers are a mix of Vintage Summer Basics, Vintage Autumn Basics and Vintage Frost Basics from Maja Design..
The kraft details are made out of Bazzill Classic Kraft 12x12..
I stamped some vintage postmarks on those.. You know I love them..

Here is the image.. Stamped with Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks..
Her name is Tilda with Early Bird and was released in 2018..
It's one of the super cute stamps from the Le Fleur Upgrade..

Here's a full list of the colours I used if you're interested..
Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany
Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Heart Pockets
Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany
Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Hickory Smoke
Old Paper, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss

Now let's talk about the dies..
The gorgeous circle I used to cut out the image is a CreaLies Circle with Open Scallop..
I just cannot recommend these dies enough..
They cut beautifully and you can find them in all kind of shapes, with all kinds of finishes..
And you get soooo many different sizes in each set.. 
I tell you.. I'm in love with these and I will use them a whole lot for sure..
Of course I just had to use the square set as well.. They complement each other marvellously..
The square set is called Squares with Open Scallop..
You can find them all HERE..

The card's base was made with a GoKreate Frame Frilly #15..
The tags and fence are both Magnolia Dohickey dies..
One is called Bloomy Tag and the other Lovely Fence..
I used Spellbinders Standard Large Circles and Petite Scalloped Circles Large for my handmade logo on the back..

A shot from the side to show you some more details..
The chipboard element is from Scrapiniec.. From the Boho Love collection to be more precise..
I made the dots around the image adding some Frantage embossing powder..
Not sure if you can tell but the pockets on her pants are covered with Nuvo Crystal Glaze and the flowers in her hair are all sparkly because I added some Stardust Stickles on top of them..

I think the House charm is absolutely adorable.. Isn't it?
I've used my sewing machine to stitch the paper edges, added lots of half-pearls and all sorts of WOC flowers all over the place..
There's also some cheesecloth here and there and different kinds of absolutely gorgeous lace..
All with a light touch of Dina Wakley Media Gesso on..

That's all for today my lovely followers..
I wish you all a fantastic day!
And of course.. Thanks for stopping by!

TOMIC Challenge #2..

Hi everyone!
I'm back with a card that I sincerely hope you will enjoy..

This is a project for the second TOMIC Challenge..
The theme for the Official Magnolia Inspirational Challenge this month is Easter + at least one animal..
I'm seriously in love with bunnies, so the only right thing to do was to use one on here..

Let's start with the image..

I did a lot of masking this time and created this little scene with Sitting Spring Tilda from the It's Springtime Collection 2017 and some Magnolia accessories stamps like the Daffodil from the Curious Wiola kit..

Once again I used my absolute favourite colouring medium.. Distress Inks..
Here's a full list of colours that I used:
Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany
Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Hickory Smoke
Old Paper, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss

After I was done with the colouring, I used a Wink of Stella glitter brush to add sparkle to the flowers, bow, rabbit's tail and nose..
The dots are white Frantage embossing powder and of course the image is sealed with a bit of Distress Micro Glaze..

I cut the image into a square and placed the biggest Spellbinders Marvelous Squares die behind that..
I used my favourite kraft paper for that..
I'm talking about the Bazzil Classic Kraft in 12x12''..

All the other papers are from Maja Design..

I've added lots of doiles everywhere.. Again..
And I've used plenty of Magnolia Doohickeys too..
The Bloomy Tag, the Heart Background (for the little hearts on the front and inside), the Jute is peeking on the sides and of course an oldie but goodie.. The Old Swedish Lace..

When I was picking the flowers it struck me that I didn't have any orange ones..
So I decided to make them on my own..
I took some Peach Foamiram from the drawer, the Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and two more Magnolia Dies..
The Daffodil and the Little Daffodil..
I have to tell you.. I really really love how they turned out..
The other flowers are from WOC..

The lace and Vintage Seam Binding are both from Craft Heaven Shop as well..

The card's base is made with a GoKreate die from the Large Frame Frilly #5 set and I used the Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and Petite Scalloped Circles Large on the inside and back..

The paper edges are distressed and sewn and three more things I always use are half-pearls, cheesecloth and Gesso..
Simply cannot live without those.. LOL!

One last thing!
I just want to thank you from the heart for stopping by!
