I {heart} U - Magnolia Card

Have you seen this Tilda before?
Well, she is Vintage Tilda from the Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010.
Instead of her holding an ornament, I've added a cute little heart candy box and made her into a Valentine image.
I've also added a cute backdrop of a garden or park-like setting with the "I {heart} U" carved on the tree (made from mulberry paper)

I wish you all a wonderful and crafty weekend!

My Angel - Magnolia Card

I'm starting to get back into the swing to things and was able to create another card.
There are still lots of Magnolia waiting for me to ink up and I'll gladly do it too! lol

This is another one of my all time favorite Tilda, she is so sweet and shy.
The edges are distressed, then silver Stickles were added.
Although there are 3 different style of stitching, I think it all comes together nicely.
Some of the paper edges have been hand-torn to give the card more texture and dimension.

Hope you like my card and Thank you so much for all your wonderful support and comments!

Cherry Kisses - Magnolia Card

Lovely Monday to you all!
Hope you had a great weekend.
Despite my busy weekend, I was able to sit down and play with this adorable stamp.
I wanted to keep her light and fresh, so I did a color wash with Distress Ink then adding more of the same color ink to the shadow area.
I like the result of this coloring style, you will see me use this technique more often :)

Doesn't she look so sweet with her cherry basket?
Yes she does, and she is sending you some sweet "Cherry Kisses"
