Tilda country escape number 6

IMG_1076 (Medium)Tilda country escape 12 ” pad, and spellbinders Persian motifs die. A similar sketch to yesterdays card, with less ribbon, and a smaller spellbinders die, but I still inked all my edges with tea dye ink,and embellished with some kindyglitz and liquid pearls. That is all I have done with this range so far, so tomorrow we will find something else to look at! today I have been playing around with some heat embossing and sprays, just experimenting really, sometimes it’s just fun to go into the craft room , pull out a few things and see what happens! til tomorrow….

Tilda Country Escape number 5

IMG_1075 (Medium)This next group of cards that Nathan and I photographed is a real mix and match! This one is a vintage style card,which I made with Tilda Country Escape papers. They came in a 12 x 12 pad, and there were a few pages of die cuts included in the pad which made it great value.I have run 2 strips of paper down the card and hidden the join with a wide ribbon. I used another wide ribbon for the bow, added a die cut ( spellbinders persian motifs) and some liquid pearls. I inked around all my pieces with tea dye distress ink, in keeping with the whole vintage style. I am off now to organise Nathan to get the camera out and photo some new cards, til tomorrow….

Tilda Country Escape number 4

IMG_3171 (Medium)Tilda Country escape 12 x 12 paper pad, with a die cut from the pad, and again a very similar sketch to the previous cards but this time I have turned it 90 degrees. I made a little tag for the sentiment, and added more ribbon and lace to finish. A very lazy day day today, with some card making – mainly just finishing projects, and it’s back to work tomorrow. til tomorrow….

Tilda Country Escape number 3 – very vintage!

IMG_3170 (Medium) A very early post today as I have a feeling life around here is going to be busy later on..This is a very similar sketch to the previous card, but I have stepped it up a little bit by adding the doily and a couple of extra layers and ribbon. the paper is Tilda Country Escape 12 x 12 paper pad, and the flowers are by Prima. I punched some leaves with my Martha Stewart frond punch and added some liquid pearls in the top right hand corner. It goes without saying that lace and lovely ribbon also featured! Til tomorrow….

Tilda country escape number 2

IMG_3169 (Medium)This is the second card I made using my Tilda Country Escape 12 x 12 paper pad. I just added some prima flowers, ribbon bow and lace to finish. The sentiment on the die cut ( included in the paper pad) was stamped with a stampin up sentiment stamp from the Perfectly penned set, and I inked all around my edges with tea dye distress ink.Today I have been making some cards for my February lesson useing Kaisercrafts new release for January ( Velvet Crush) – it is the most gorgeous paper and I can’t wait to start on my own cards using it!

Very Vintage – Tilda Country Escape..number 1.

IMG_3168 (Medium)Hello, I hope you all had a lovely restful christmas. I had a busy christmas day, but boxing day was nice and relaxing – it was back to work for a few hours this morning, and I have had a lazy afternoon, and the next 3 days rostered days off, so feeling quite happy about that! Todays card is made with  a 12 x12 paper pad I picked up -and it had a few sheets of die-cuts in the pad as well so great value for money. Its a company I haven’t bought before , – Tilda, and the pad is called Country escape but I loved the very vintageness of it. I fussy cit the flowers from one of the sheets, and inked all my edges with Tea dye distress ink. Of course added some ribbon and some kaisercraft pearls to finish. Til tomorrow….
