Rose Cake Tilda..

Hey you!

A promise is a debt so today I'm back with another project..
I made a precious little gift for a girl that is celebrating her 1st Birthday..


For the card's base I chose a beautiful GoKreate die..
The papers are all Maja Design of course and I mixed a few different paper collections on here..
I used the Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Frost Basics 6x6 Paper Pads and two 12x12 sheets from the Vintage Baby Collection..


Here is my sweet Rose Cake Tilda..
I'm absolutely in love with this image from the BOHO Collection 2015!
I stamped her with Jet Black Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks..
I don't know if you are following my work on Facebook too but if you are I'm sure you saw a video I posted the other day on how to add all those accents around the image..
The video is a total disaster but at least you can see that sometimes things can go really wrong but everything turns out for the best in the end..
Just Never Ever Give Up! LOL!


One of the Magnolia Doohickeys I use the most is the amazing Tilda Tag die..
I used some kraft paper for that and I stamped all over the two tags with the same Magnolia stamp sets I used around the image..
They are called Postcard and New York..
There's also a Kort&Godt postmark there..
I used Memento Rich Cocoa for those and did some second generation stamping..

Then I tied some fab white Vintage Seam Binding on both of them..


I love playing with molds so I made this little frame and some butterflies..
The number 1 is cut with the Tim Holtz Alterations - Vintage Market Alphabet..
The Circles and Scalloped Circles I used to cut out the image are from Spellbinders..


There's a doily behind the image and some Scrapiniec Chipboard to add that extra little something..
I used many many half-pearls and I mixed several colours this time..
The fabulous Lace Fleur is peeking out of there and I placed one of the stunning edge bands of the Maja papers on top of that..
I like to put some Cheesecloth here and there for some extra texture and I found some pearl string in my stash so I used that one also..


All the flowers on this card are from WOC except for one..
The fluffy one is from Prima..
Yeah.. These flowers are really pretty but too pricey if you ask me..

I used one more Doohickey on here..
The amazing Doily Flowers..
I cut them out of vellum and placed them under the other mulberry paper flowers..

All the paper edges are machine sewn because I feel that none of my projects is completely finished without those..


I tried to catch all that sparkle with my camera..
Frosted Lace Stickles on the cake, dress and hair band..
Stardust Stickles on the roses..
Highlights on the eyes and cheeks made with a Ranger White Opaque Pen..
Frantage sprinkled all around her..
And tons of Gesso all over the card..


This is the inside..
A circle and a kraft scalloped circle behind that..
Another gorgeous doily..
Two balloons from one of the Doohickey Club Magazines..
And a few hearts that actualy belong to a banner I used also..
I'm not showing the upper portion of the opened card because I don't want to reveal the name of the girl..


The back of the card..
I like to use my personalized stamp on every single thing I make and that Mini Doily die is just a perfect fit for that..
The border was made with an old Martha Stewart punch that I've been neglecting for too long..


I hope you survived this extremely long post but I'm just sooooo happy to be back!
I missed you all soooo much!
See ya!

Hugs, Tina

Tilda with an Armful of Flowers..

Hello there!

You will not believe it.. I am finally showing you a new project on here..
How long has it been?
Too long if you ask me..

I will be honest.. I was supposed to post this on Sunday for the Anything Goes theme on the Craft Heaven Shop Inspirational Blog but unfortunately I did not have the time to finish it..
Anyway.. I made it.. Finally!
A project I've been wanting to get done for so long..
So here we go..


A gorgeous Scrapiniec Shadow Box that I decorated with all sorts of things from my shop of course..
When I was making it I was thinking that this kind of project would make an amazing decoration in a kid's room..
It is meant to be hung on a wall.. Now I just need to put a hanger on the back..


You might have seen on my Facebook page that I started colouring this gorgeous image a while ago..
Now it's finally finished..
I coloured this Tilda with an Armful of Flowers from the SeaSide collection 2016 with my beloved Distress Inks..
The highlights on the image are made with a Ranger White Opaque Pen and the sparkly details with Stickles..
The dots around her are just Chunky White Frantage..

The stamped roses??
An absolute favourite of mine!
These are the Altenew Vintage Roses..
It was love at first sight and when I discovered how simple it was to use these I couldn't stop..
I used just 1 Distress Inks to make these and I did some simple and second and third generation stamping to achieve this unbelievably realistic effect..
If you would like to see a tutorial about this just let me know..


The die I used to cut out the image is a Spellbinders frame from the Floral Assortment set..
I tried to embellish as many surfaces as I could and I did use my sewing machine to do the stitches all around the paper pieces..
I also used a paper doily to give some more interest..

The papers are all from Pion Design..
One sheet from the Vintage Garden collection and two from the Paris Flea Market collection that is just to die for..


There are many many details on here..
I used a GoKreate behind the image..
Then some Magnolia Doohickeys like the gorgeous Tilda Tag and Chicken Wire..
I stamped the tags and fence from the Cozy Fox and Fence Stamp & Cutz set with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and the Magnolia Postcard set and the New York Set and an old Kort & Godt stamp I have..
The kraft paper is from Bazzil..
I put a bit of foam adhesive behind the fence to make it pop out more..

Then there is a little frame I made and the butterflies..
And all those marvelous WOC flowers all around with some cheesecloth under..
Some half-pearls to make it more sophisticated..
And the fabulous White Resin Roses..

The lace.. Our wonderful Lace Fleur..
An a cute little bronze charm called Romantic Key..


I did apply some Dina Wakley Gesso here and there and some half-pearls on the outside too..
I also gessoed some parts of the chipboard frame and left the rest just as is..


Then there's the back of the box..
Since it will be hanging somewhere I decided to make just a simple pocket when you can tuck in a nice message for the recipient..
The border I used is also a Magnolia die.. This one is pretty old but still one of my all time favourites..
It's called Old Swedish Lace..
Cute, isn't it?


Here's one last shot of my project folks..
Hope this post wasn't too long for your liking and you got to the end of it..
Can't wait to make something else!
I'm finally back!!!

Hugs, Tina
