Tilly With Presents

Whoa, It's Annette here today, but I'm a bit late with my post today, mainly because I've only just finished my card!!!  Whoops!

I'm using some gorgeous Wild Rose Studio papers, and I matched the colours of the papers in the colours that I used for the image, which is also Wild Rose Studio called Tilly with Presents.

I think that the purple and aqua look lovely together.

Giving Away

It's Annette back as your host today.  I ordered a few bits and bobs from the The Stamp Basket sale last week, and although they're Christmas images, and it's only June, I couldn't resist using them for today's card.

This cute Nellie Snellen image is called Giving Away and I painted her with my distress reinkers. I tried to water down the colours a bit as I wanted a softer appearance.  I've used non festive colours of aqua and brown, but added some white snowflake die cuts.

Rose Scent Tilda

It's Annette with you today, and I really love today's card which I've made for The Stamp Basket.  I ordered the  gorgeous new Graphic 45 pad from Janet, and it arrived last Saturday.  So, after hubby's rant along the lines of "gawd, what have you bought now" when the package hit the doormat, guess what I spent the morning playing with!!

I coloured her with my Copics, but stamped the image with grey, rather than black, ink pad so the lines are soft.  I stitched around the panels and image and managed to squeeze in two of my favourite Memory box dies; Lavish Branch and Fancy Blossoms.

The Birthday Girl...


Hi all,
I have a Birthday card to show you today using a number of products that can be found in our summer sale!! The cute stamp is Bildmalarna ‘Your Birthday’...doesn't that cake look scrummy? I can almost taste the frosting!

 

 
The gorgeous papers are Papermania ‘Vintage Notes’ - this is such a lovely girly paper pack full of nostalgia! The sentiment is one of my favourites from the Whiff of Joy 'Magical Wishes' collection - there are some really lovely sentiments in this collection that can be used time and time again. I cut out the sentiment using one of the Nellie Snellie Multi-frame die hearts...I absolutely love this set..and they are a real bargain at the moment in the sale!
Here’s a close up of the image coloured with copics:

Tilly with Presents

Hello everyone, it's Annette acting as your host today, and despite the lack of my beloved embellishments, I think that today's card is one of my favourites that I've created for The Stamp Basket.  Probably because it features my favourite two colours, pink and aqua.

I've used my lovely Wild Rose Studio Vintage Rose papers. There are usually one or two papers in a set that I don't like as much, but I love all the papers in this set. I've also used a cute image of Tilly with Presents.

It's a truly C&S design (for me) and I really like showing off the pretty pink and aqua papers without cluttering them up with a lot of embellishments.

Hope you like it too.

The gorgeous papers are Bo Bunny ‘Surprise’ - papers for male cards are quite often in blues and browns but this pad is just the ticket for bringing a big ray of  sunshine into Father’s Day and of course, will be so suitable for other special occasion cards too!

Facebook Poll


Morning everyone and a happy Friday! The sun is shining, the windows are open and the birds are in song – what a gorgeous morning it is!
Before I getting going in my crafting room, I thought I’d just stop by to tell you about a poll that we are holding on our facebook page. I just love using die-cuts on my crafting projects and over the years, I’ve collected so many different dies...big ones, small ones…you name it! This got me thinking, which brand do I have the most of…and which brand do other people have the most of, too?!

So we thought we'd do a little poll to find out! Our poll is very quick and easy to complete, so we hope you’ll pop over to our facbook page (the link is in the right sidebar) and let us know…
...of all the dies in the crafting world, our question is simply:

”What brand of dies do you buy the most?”

Please tell your friends and family about the poll…we hope to get as many people as possible participating...
...it will only take a few moments to complete and we’d love to hear from everyone...so please, drop by our facebook page!
Hope you have a fab weekend, whatever your plans!

Hugs,

Janet xx
