Tilda With Star

 Good morning!  I'm excited to share my latest card for Craft Heaven this morning featuring my absolute favourite Tilda fron the Christmas Party collection, Tilda with Star.
 As always I've painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've also added some Stardust Stickles to the Christmas tree frills and her star.
 The sentiment is also from the new collection and comes in a set with another sentiment and some snowflakes.  I've stamped it with Pine Needles distress ink.
 The gorgeous papers are by Maja Design and these two with stars and Christmas trees on were perfect to match Tilda!  I've also added some lace, wooden buttons and ribbon from Craft Heaven to complete my card.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the team! x

Welcome to my Birthday...


It's me Barbara with you today!
It's time to share another creation with you. This time I've made a gift box using Welcome to my Birthday Tilda from Yay, It's your Birthday Collection 2017. 

The gorgeous papers used are all from Sofiero collection.
 I used Shades of Sofiero Monocromes and Sofiero design papers. I love soft pink and white tones. 
All papers used are listed below my post.

I cut out this gorgeous Tilda using Vintage Frames die. Other dies used are Dream tag and Rosemary Wreath.

I coloured Tilda with Distress inks.
All the highlights are made with a Ranger White Opaque pen.
.... Then.... Everything is safely sealed with a tiny bit of Distress Micro Glaze.

Some light touches of Dina Wakley Media Gesso here and there... 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you again in a few days!

Christmas Roses..

Good morning!

  Today I'd like to share my card for Craft Heaven Shop using another of the gorgeous stamps from Stempelglede's Christmas Rose set.

I have painted the Christmas Rose image with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've also added a shimmer to the holly leaves with a Wink of Stella pen.  The swirling snowflake pattern around the edges of the image is another stamp from the set.

 I have dyed some white seam binding from the store with Pine Needles Distress Ink to match the Pion Design papers.

 The gorgeous lace is from Craft Heaven too and I've added some poinsettias I've made with some ecru Foamiran, cheesecloth and some red berries.

 The sentiment is from the Stempelglede stamp set too and I have used some glitter cardstock saved from last year's Christmas crackers to make the snowflake border, cut with a Tim Holtz die.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Cold noses..


christmas is still coming closer. And this means we have to do more and more christmas cards =)
That's why I have a new christmas card to share with you today.
I used this absolutly cute stamp from Whipper Snapper. I have found him on a crafting fair this year. 

The background of this image I made with my great  Distress Oxide Inks. They are perfect for making those backgrounds. You can blend them more softly than the normal Distress Inks. I used the colours Black Soot, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans. I blended them with my round Blending Tool from Tim Holtz. It's so much easier as with the big blending tool.
The white sprinkles I made with Gesso. Here I took some paint on my brush and splattered it on the image. Of course I covered the image with removable tape ;)

 The round stamp is an oldie from Magnolia. The lyrics are from one of my fave Christmas songs.

I added a little charm right beside the image. Unfortunately I have no more of my fave mittens from Tina's shop. Here you can find the more sweet ones =)

Both tags are Doohickey dies and are movable.
I love to cover everything with white Gesso *lol*. The stamps on them are from Magnolia, too.

Hope I inspired you a bit today..

Holiday Wishes..

Good morning people!
Irene here with you on this cold winter morning. Brrr..

Do you remember my latest video tutorial?
The one with Frozen Tilda.
You missed it? It's HERE..
Check it out!
I am going to teach you how to colour this gorgeous Magnolia stamp with Prismacolor pencils.
Easy and 100% fun!

This is the card I made with her.
I used my favourite papers. Two beautiful Maja Design collections: I Wish and Denim & Friends.
Love them both! Or should I say Love them ALL!

As I said before this cute Frozen Tilda from the Christmas Party collection 2017 is colored with Prismacolor pencils.
All the highlights are made with a Ranger White Opaque pen.
Behind her is the Holiday Wishes sentiment from that same collection.
I really hope you enjoyed my little tutorial. Did you?

I kept the center of the card pretty simple, only adding some Gesso and sparkle to it for that frosty look. And a cute little resin frame.
The rest is much fuller.
Lots of Red Frosted Pomegranates, fibers and flowers and leaves made with some Doohickeys from the vol.4.

Thanks for visiting!
Hope you have a great day!

You're a star!

Hello fellow crafters!
Barbara with you today...

Here is my newest project for the Craft Heaven Shop DT.

I really, really love all the blue tones in Maja Design's Denim & Friends collection so I decided to have a play with those. And of course I had to use the Monochromes too. These Shades of Denim are sooo beautiful and I love the fact that they match perfectly the whole collection.

Here is my Tilda with Flower in her Pocket from the Country Girl Collection 2017 coloured with Distress Inks.
I used the Ranger White Opaque Pen for the highlights in her eyes and some White Opal Liquid Pearls all around her.
Everything is safely sealed with a tiny bit of Distress Micro Glaze.

As usual I placed a doily back there and lots of layers and stitching.
The Doohickeys I used this time are:

Some light touches of Dina Wakley Media Gesso here and there,
more Liquid Pearls all around the scalloped oval behind the image.
And a part of the edging band of the 12x12 Sneakers sheet I used, placed as a sweet sentiment.
I think this is it.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you again in a few days!
