Another card using my Magnolia Club Dies!!! 2nd post for today.

Hiya Everyone 

Back again to show you my card that I have made using my new Magnolia Club Dies! I thought it would be quite novel to sit Cute Sakura Tilda on the fence.

I have also used my two ornate dies to create the decorative borders at the top and hand cut and decorated the stand, to match the card.

I have die cut and embossed this little fence, which has a lovely wood grain to it and used the tiny leaves that came in the club too!

The papers are Pion Design Pansy paper and also anemone paper from my precious daughter collection. The flowers are WOC and Kort & Godt, with beaded twigs and some lovely frosted berries that I added gesso to, from L&L Crafts.

New Challenge Begins Today @ Marvellous Magnolia!

Good afternoon everyone,
 today is the start of a brand new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia Challenge and our fantastic sponsors this fortnight are Magnolia Liscious!!!

The theme is use Kraft Paper.

This is not my usual style of card, but I wanted to show you some of my new dies that arrived today in my Magnolia Doohickey club. 

There are a lot that will be just perfect for autumn and lots that I can use right now he he! I also bought the doohickey projector reel direct from Magnolia and it is just perfect for this Insta Tilda Image.

Aren't these little toad stools and long grasses fab!!!

These beautiful flowers are from Lemon craft - so lush!
The papers are Pion design with a Kraft La La Land die cut, to fit the theme.

Tilda with knee socks and a new challenge @ Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia

Hello Everyone, 

Our brand new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia starts today!

The theme this time around is Pearls or Gems and our wonderful sponsor is a popular favourite... the Ribbon Girl!

I have made a mini milk carton from the Dutch Doobadoo template and covered it with Wet Paint papers and some from my own stash!

I coloured up Tilda with knee socks from the 2015 Sakura Range, with copics  added a few doohickeys, Florals and bling.

I stained my own shabby seam binding with DI's to match the colour scheme.

I also made the hand made pearl pin and die cut the bridal bow doohickey to match. 

We hope that you pop by today and join our challenge and see who our last winner is and the DT's Top 3!

Wishing you a great week!

Something a little different

Happy Saturday Everyone, 

Yesterday I coloured up this sweet image as I fancied a change!!!

Its quite a simple card and I cut out all the layers with my dies.

Isn't she just beautiful, I just love her hair, so I mainly concentrated on colouring that up and less focus on the clothes. As I wanted her hair to stand out and I did something totally new for me and added dots throughout some lengths to pick out the layers.

I probably could have blended the forehead a bit more, but I didnt want to mess about with it too much, its not too bad in real life he he!

Anyway here is my simple card

I put her on to the card at a bit of a jaunty angle!

I gave her an implied nose, just enough shading to imply one, not very dark as I like this effect.

The papers are my new much loved wet paint, the unusual gingham ribbon is from the ribbon girl and of course the flowers are WOC! The beautiful pearl string and button are from L&L Crafts.

I wanted a fresher looking card this time and I am quite pleased with it. Thank you for dropping by today and enjoy your weekend!

A card I made for fun with Flower Tiara Tilda!

Hello Everyone

Here is a card that I made for fun, using Tilda with flower Tiara from the new Sakura Range.

She has a little heart and a dot in her right eye, but I thought it just looks a little odd, so I coloured over it, suppose it is up to personal preference.

I coloured her up with copics and stamped some extra little grasses around her feet to add a bit of interest.
 The gorgeous cream lace is from Jules House Of Ribbons who is also currently sponsoring our challenge over at LHOSM, pop over today and you could win a £10 voucher to spend in store, the theme is use a die cut, so easy!

My layers of papers are Wet Paint pad available at Scrap and Craft Store  and Pion Design Vintage Garden and this paper is called Pink Ornament, so pretty and I hand cut a white border around this paper.
The sentiment is LOTV and was part of a duo stamp set that I bought many years ago. 
The gorgeous pink lace is from L&L Crafts and I added a little chipboard swirl to the left hand side of my WOC flower arrangement.

Check out this beautiful rhinestone humming bird charm, utterly stunning!

Thank you for stopping by today, if you have any questions about products please drop me a line and I will do my best to help.

Take care, Crafty Cuddles Jay xxx

I would love to enter my card in to Creatalicious Challenge - Butterflies
