Coloured him with Promarkers and added mini rik rak from crafty ribbons and paper and sentiment stamp from my stash

Summery Tilda with Flower Birthday Wishes

Image
Hi everyone hope you're all well!
I've gone and bought some new Magnolia Stamps this week! (Even though I'm beyond broke right now!!) lol and I've made a summery Birthday card with my first newbie:




I paper pieced her bow and dress (even the fiddly shoulder and sleeve!) from the yellow patterned paper and done a bit of experimenting with swirly stamps in the corners of the yellow paper.
I was a bit nervous to stamp onto the patterned paper incase it didn't look right but I used brown ink which matched perfectly, black seemed a bit dark for this card. I also stamped a few little butterflies I found in my stash and inked around the edge of the image.
I drew and cut out the cloud by hand and mounted on 1mm foam pads


I used:
Little London - Magnolia Tilda Stamp Indigo Blu Quintessentially English Stamps Wee stamps (mouse) Promarkers
Dovecraft Garden Party Papers Ranger Liquid Pearls Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch WOC yellow 15mm roses Ribbon, white flowers, corner punch and sentimen…

Feathered Friends Christmas Card (LOTV)

Image
Hello!
Today I'm sharing a Christmas Card using Feathered Friends Stamp and Classic Christmas papers from Lili of the Valley. I bought these quite a few weeks ago now and this is the first time I've used them!
I think this is my favourite LOTV Christmas Stamp! It's so adorable! I love robins and these two children are so cute in their trendy outfits! Such a delight to colour!
And these papers are so scrumptious and traditional I love them and can't wait to use more!





I also used:
LOTV Christmas Greetings Stamp Promarkers Natural Hessian, Ivory Jute and Cheesecloth - The Ribbon Girl Anita's Satin Ribbon Snowflakes and 3mm pearls from stash
The little robin in the top corner was in one of my Christmas stamp sets and I just couldn't resist using him for this card!
I also added Glitz It clear frosting glitter glue to the image for a bit of sparkle :-)



Hope you like it!
Thanks for all your lovely comments I love receiving them and I'll pop by your blogs when I can :-)
Enjoy yo…
