Snuggle Time

 Snuggle Time - Lili of the Valley

Hello my lovelies - hope I find you all well?
I have seen some super round cards in and around blogland, so thought it was time I made one too.
The lovely Gina Knott's cards are amazing, so beautifully put together. 
She gave me such inspiration to make this card. 

We have lots of baby's due in the next few months, so I've just had to use LOTV stamps. 
Pink card to be finished later today, as I'm not sure whats going to arrive.
This cute stamp was a must have - so adoreable.
I have coloured with both pro-markers and poly pencils.

I've used a Go Kreate Large Circle Frame - it's just over 5".
 Didn't have the pennies for a bigger one :((  I will get one soon though, as this card is quite small for me. Around the edge is a Martha Stewart punch and just cut sections out to go around the card.
Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia.
 Cheery Lynn Die - fanciful flourish.
Embellishments - ribbon, button and sentiment from stash. 

I'm going to enter this card in Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - Anything but Square.
I WILL be placing my tutorial on mirror stamping soon, just havent had the time. Been rather busy my end of late. Well, time for me to shoot - things to do, places to go.
Catch you all soon.
Hugs & Loves

Tilda with Wrapped Heart

 My card is all finished now - though there is something missing. I don't know what it is!
Just doesnt look right, I know I haven't placed a sentiment - maybe it's that. Feed back would be nice.
 I will do picture instructions over the weekend, on how I did the mirror stamping. 
Hope you can wait that long?
 Tilda with Wrapped Heart - Sweet Crazy Love 2012
Papers are First Edition - Rose Garden.
Ribbon and buttons from stash.
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and stash.
Coloured with Pro-markers.
Looking at the card I think it''s Tilda's bows I don't like. I'm not really in to dark greens as I can never get them to look right.
Well, thats it for me. Have a super weekend. Stay safe in the snow.

Mirror image stamping

Morning my lovelies. I've been having a go at mirror image stamping. Why didn't I think of this before, I ask myself. It's so easy. 
The right stamp is the original and the left a mirror image. 
There is a slight difference in colour but not too much. I've seen a few cards on blogs with this technique but the best I've seen is Jane's - its so cute and coloured beautiful, as are all her cards.
So I was thinking of doing a tutorial - any one interested?

Candy Winner

Good Morning Crafters.
I hope your all nice and warm and not had too much snow. I'm sitting against my radiator with a nice cup of tea. Not a great deal of snow, though it is slowly dropping down. My Grandaughter Holly keeps opening the back door - in her wellies and dressing gown waiting for there to be enough to build a snowman and get the sleigh out. Bless her.
Anyway on to the winner of the wonderful Teddy Bo stamps.

Congratulations sweetie. Contact me with your postal address and I will get them out to you asp.

Teddy Bea - Little Ballet

She's always been one of my favourite stamps and I needed a " bear " fix.
Coloured her with pro-markers. I have gave the fur a totally different look this time. 
Instead of circle strokes, I have used dots and lots of them - hope you like?

Papers are so LUSH too - FIRST EDITION - J'Adore - OMG you have to get them.
 Beautiful colours and textures. I'm in love with them.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.

SPELLBINDERS Nestabilities - Floral Ovals.
Small butterfly punch.
Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts
 Cheery Lynn Die - fanciful flourish

With the scraps of paper, I made small paper beads and attached to ribbon.
All ribbon from stash.
Small roses - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Gems - docrafts.

That's all for me tonight - paperwork to do, then finish colouring another stamp.
Happy Crafting.
Hugs & Loves

Tilda with Little Pocket

Good evening everyone - sorry for my absence of late, just not had the crafting urge.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. It was very quiet my end - just isn't the same any more.
Hubby was his usual grumpy self. So me and the girls have decided it's cancelled this year. We're going to do something different for a change and leave the Grinch at home!
Girl Power.
I would like to wish you all - all the best for this new year. Fingers crossed mine will be full of joy,  with no health problems. Tammy really does need some luck.
