Tilda with Rose Lace Dress Tag


I have gotten crazy about making tags! Here's another one from me, in blue! I have used the white embossing lines technique for this stamp, which means that you stamp the image with Embossing ink, pour some white embossing powder on it, shake it off, heat it and voilà! White embossed lines! ;) It gives such a cool effect and I totally adore colouring these images up! Up until now I have only tried Magnolia stamps, perhaps the effect will look cool on other brands as well? :)

Here's my tag! I have used a GORGEOUS paper from K&Company called Jubilée Specialty Paper pad (Code 30-388963) on both sides of the tag.

I bought a beautiful piece of fabric that I ripped apart into strings that I use for the tag hole. It's wrinkled and sooo beautiful!

The butterfly and bird is made with Martha Stewart clay. The cabochon to the left is home made with an image from this store.

The stamped sentiment is from Forever Friends and called Black and Gold stamp collection. I stamped it with Distress Ink Broken China. I cut a scalloped circle with Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped circles.

The butterfly, bird and metal birdcage is inked with Inka Gold Aquamarine.

I have coloured this Tilda with Rose Lace Dress from the Pink Lemonade collection of Magnolia, with Copics. I have also stamped around the image with a Vintage stamp set (totally adore them!) with Distress Ink Broken China. The combinations are:

Hair: E57, E43, E53
Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20, Eyes: W7
Hat: E18, E15, Y17, Y15, Y11, Y00
Bow on the hat, dress and shoes: BG09, BG05, BG01, BG000

Thank you so much for stopping by, happy crafting! :)

Flower Ballerina in a CAS card

Hello everyone!

Today I finished a card with a beautiful stamp from Aurora Wings called Flower Ballerina that I bought some time ago but haven't had the chance to colour up until today! :)

Here's my card! A CAS card - so not me! :D The text stamp is in Swedish and means: "Forgive quickly, Kiss Slowly, Love long, Laugh a lot and never regret the things that made you feel alive!" It's such a gorgeous stamp and I adore the message.

Here's a close-up at Flower Ballerina. I coloured her with Copics and the combinations are:

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20
Hair: E57, E43, E53
Dress, shoes and flowers: RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91
Glitter pen for details

A very clean and simple card from me today, it felt great doing that for a change! :)

Happy Crafting!

Shaky A Guest DT projects!


I've been kind of absent here the last couple of weeks, have had a lot on my plate but now I am feeling AWESOME, because I just made my biggest dream come true.. I got a job as a teacher in school! I have an education so I can teach in both preschool and school and the jobs in the early ages at schools in Sweden are HARD to get and I have finally got one! :D

But that's not all the fun that has happened - I was asked by talented Loshakerato Alberto to be a Guest Designer for his stamp brand Shaky A stamps! I was so honoured and said yes immediately! I decided to do two tags that you can use as bookmarks, although there are some embellishments that are a little elevated, it's no problem using them as bookmarks :)

Here is the first bookmark... I have used a gorgeous pink design paper from Inkido Beautiful Memories Collection (Inkido is closing its production so this paper will soon be very rare! :( ) The stamp from Shaky A is called Princess of my life and you can find it here. The beautiful lace is something I just bought at Live and Love Crafts, it's sooo beautiful!! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the clay embellishments are made with Martha Stewart clay and molds. I have coloured the stamp with Copics and the combinations I have used are the following:

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20 (eyes:) BG49, BG13
Hair: E18, E15
Hat and dress: R89, R85, R83, R81
Vails: R85, R83, R81
Wings: Y17, Y15, Y11, Y000
White dots: Poscapen

And here's my next tag/bookmark! This is made with a Shaky A stamp called Magic Everyday and you can find her here. The design paper is the same as the one above and the lace is a different one I just bought at Live and Love Crafts. The colours I used to colour this stamp up are the following:

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20 (eyes:) YG03, YG67, YG11
Hair: E29, E25, E21
Dress: Purple: V09, V15, V12, V01 Pink: R85, R83, R81
Wings: Y17, Y15, Y11, Y000
White dots: Poscapen

So, that's what I had to show you today! Thank you very much Alberto for this opportunity, totally enjoyed colouring these two stamps up - they are very colouring friendly ;) If you want to see more of Shaky A stamps, visit the Etsy store here.

Happy Crafting!

A Magnolia tag with Summer Buzz Tilda

Today I have made a tag with a Magnolia stamp called Summer Buzz Tilda. I have found that tags are pretty amazing to craft, and I keep in mind that they could be used as bookmarks, so I try and focus my enhanced embellishments to the top and the flat ones on the bottom of the tag.

Here's my tag!
I have used Maja Design paper (although I am not sure from which collection or what the paper is called, got it on sale somewhere this summer :D ) I have used gorgeous laces and a piece of striated paper (the white one behind Tilda). I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the butterfly on the upper right corner that I inked with Inka Gold Rose Quartz. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little clay embellishment in the left corner is actually a gift from a dear friend of mine, Jenni :) Thank you sweetie! I embossed it with glitter as usual!! :D I wrapped the image with a pearl lace, love the effect it gives!

Here's a close-up at Summer Buzz Tilda!I used Frantage Enamel Shabby Pink around the image.  I coloured her with Copics and I used the following combinations:

Hair: E29, E25, E21
Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20, W7 (for eye lashes)
Dress and bow know: E04, RV34, RV11
The picnic basket: The bottle: Different E30's Basket and baguette: E30's and Y11, Y000 Blanket: RV34, RV11
Grass: YG67, YG63, YG03,
White: Posca pen

Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy crafting! :)
