Insta Tilda

I'm having a crazy week ... some of you know I made course for nail stylist and as it turned out, making nails is quite a pain in the ... so while I'm learning, fixing mistakes and so on I got sick. It's 35 °C outside and I'm with fever. Like wtf ... and just to put the cherry on top, my daughter is sick too and my partner is working most of the days, so it's just us, sick, tired, hot ... looking outside at our pool with nice warm water ... ugh ... I just hope next week will be any better. Enough about me ...
Today's card features Insta Tilda, super cute image from World Wide Web collection, 2015.

Image was coloured using Distress ink pads. Dies used are mostly from Magnolia: Insta Love Cam, Insta stripes ... Papers are from Doodlebug and flowers from I am roses.

Tilda in the Garden ♡ Swedish House Crafts DT

Today I'm sharing my first project as a Swedish House Crafts design team member. I was soooo very happy when I got the invitation and creating with SHC's projects is a pure joy.
For my first project I made a Birthday/Friend card with one of the older Magnolia stamps. This cutie is called Tilda in the Garden.

Image was coloured using Distress ink pads. Colours used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
outfit: stormy sky, black soot
shoes: walnut stain
socks: black soot
roses: miled lavender, black soot, peeled paint

I used lots of pretty dies from the shop. Image was cut out using Stitched rectangles from Gummiapan. I added another layer cut with the same dies on the back of the image just to add a bit more dimension. I cut the largest circle from the Cross stitched circles set and placed it behind the rectangles.

I also used the new banner and heart tag from the latest Doohickey box, vol. 14. You can preorder Magnolia's Doohickey boxes in Suha's store. I have them all and I absolutely love them!

I also decorated the inside. I stamped "In a World where you ..." sentiment and cut it out using circles die and mat it with another die cut made with Cross stitched circles from Roxstamps.

That's it for today. I hope you like my card.
