Hi and welcome to by blog, where you will see that i am truly addicted to Magnolia Tilda. Today i have another card topper for you. The  cute Tilda i have used is a Easter Tilda but i have altered her slightly as i wanted a Tilda sitting down, now i do have a few but i wanted to use one that i haven't used in a while and i thought why should this one only be for Easter shes so cute its a shame to keep her boxed up until next year.

 I matted and layered her onto various papers including My Minds eye and Magnolia ink. The swirly border is a Martha Stewart deep edge punch. I cut out the love hearts using nest abilities then added flower soft around the inside edge. Now as you may be aware every week there is a challenge at TOMIC.( The official magnolia inspiration challenge) Click on the blinky to check it out for yourselves. This week the theme is stitching real or faux now unfortunately i don't have a sewing machine so i have drawn white faux stitching around the papers, i hope it shows up in the picture. I was going to use black but it was to harsh

 Here you can see the paper flowers that i have added along with these lovely leaves that have been die cut. This is a new die i bought this week. I love the result and guess i will be using it a lot more.

Hello and welcome here i have a mermaid Tilda card for you. The challenge over at TOMIC this week is  `Nautical` So i`ve made this napkin folded card. I saw the idea and i have to say it took my a couple of trys before i got the folding right, but i`m glad i persisted. 

 I`ve used mermaid Tilda and seahorse. I have added glitter to Tildas tail for a shimmery effect. Then added water like droplets to represent bubbles. The seaweed like die cuts behind the sea weed and the flowers are a magnolia ink doohickey die.

I hope you like the card. Challenges i`m entering The official magnolia inspiration challenge.

Hi huns hope you are all well. Today i have a stepper card for you to see. This weeks challenge at TOMIC
is make a scene ( dimensional ) Now i`v`e never made a card like this before. I got the idea straight away as my niece and i was talking about doing a fairy garden but as of yet we have not got around to it. So i had the idea but had to think of how to put it all together. Luckily i have quite a few magnolia stamps to choose from, and all the Tilda fairy's wanted to be on the card but i had to choose only three orrrr. and these were the lucky ones ha ha. I could just hear them pick me, pick me.
 Altogether i used 9 Magnolia stamps and a doohickey fence die cut. These were coloured with copic markers.
 Here you can see the dimension. The background is a magnolia stamp and i drew the wall as i wanted it to be a secret walled garden, where if your lucky enough if you come through the door quietly you might see the fairies.

Hope you like it. I now as proud of place on the mantel piece.
I would like to enter this card into the :- official magnolia inspiration challenge. #6
