Youpie !

Hello everybody,

After all these delicate weeks that we have lived, I must admit that I welcome June with much relief and full of hope for a healthier future ...

It is therefore quite natural that I offer you this little doll that explodes with joy and open its arms out towards a free and happy future that I wish you all!

Have a great day
Lilly

Best Tea-Cher Ever!


Good evening!  I hope my post finds you all safe and well in these worrying times.  It has been very hot and sunny the past few days here so I decided to spend some time painting an image in the garden instead of my craft room.  I have made a teacher thank you card with the resulting image, the gorgeous Best Tea-cher Ever stamp set from the Live, Laugh, Love Collection.


I have used all of the stamps in the set except the hearts and kisses stamp and layered the sentiment over parts of the image for a quirky look.  As always I have painted the images with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.


I have used the cup, saucer and teapot dies from Doohickey Volume 14, Afternoon Tea.  The papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics Collection.



The gorgeous chipboard piece is by Laserowe.  I have added some Gesso to it here and there as well as around the edges of the card.


The lace and roses are from Craft Heaven.I made some cute tea bags using the dies from Volume 14 too.  I thought it would be fun to make them out of cheesecloth.  The 'tea leaves' are brown Flower Soft.  I love how they turned out!


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Pink or blue ?

Hello to everyone,

For a good ten years that I collect "Magnolia" stamps, I had the opportunity to get them in many different shops, French or not ... So today, I would like to talk to you a lovely encounter: the sweet Tina from the Craft Heaven Shop.
I bought my products from her long before being part of her DT and I have always been pleasantly surprised by her seriousness and her kindness: e-mail at each stage of the order, products nicely wrapped in tissue paper , little word always so pleasant to read ...

For all her sincere attentions and the love she puts in her packages, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU, that's it ...

Make way for cards: two very simple binoculars to highlight two stamps that I love, THE die Crealies that I love too (what do you mean, do you get drunk with this die?) And the pleasure of adding a few flowers: look this beautiful peach color, a treat !!

See you soon
Lilly

Rose Princess Tilda


Good afternoon!  I hope my post finds you safe and well, wherever you are around the world.  Today's card features the gorgeous Rose Princess Tilda and paper from Pion Design's Cherry Blossom Lane collection.  This paper is so pretty!  I have used both sides on my card.


I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added dots to her cheeks and dress with a white gel pen.


There is a wonderful selection of chipboard pieces in the Craft Heaven shop, there are the Baby Lily set.  These come with a backing cut out so that you can layer them up but I have used them on their own as I wanted a more delicate look.  The tiny blossoms are from the store too.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

85 years !!

Hello to everyone,

When I discovered this little stamp "Edwin" (supposed to be a student), I told myself that it still looked very much like a Postman.
And, since my husband's father was a Postman ... and, that he celebrated his 85th birthday at the end of April, I said to myself (yes, I know, I say a lot to myself) that I could give him a little postcard on the theme of La Poste.
A little "85" added to the felt in the sign and zou, voila!




A quick glance at the details: blue, mustard yellow, a stamp-shaped die, newspaper and string ... everything is there !!


Take care of yourself
Lilly

And for boys ?

Good morning all,

I think you will all agree with me that it is much easier to scrap a card for girls than for boys?
And when, like me, we love pink, flowers and pretty soft paper from Maja Design, it's even more complicated!

Yes but here it is: exceptional event (a friend who is celebrating his 40th birthday this year, which is absoooolutely not my case!), exceptional card : 

I tried to make it as masculine as possible and I used this superb die camera of Magnolia which had been eyeing me for a long time.
I hope you will like it ...

Have a good day
Lilly

Happy Easter..


Good morning!  I am a little late posting my Easter creation but better late than never!  I have used the gorgeous Tilda from the Easter Pop Up Box.  Isn't she cute in her bunny outfit?  The paper is by Pion Design - perfect for an egg card - I love it!


As always, I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and used a white gel pen for the dots on her cheeks and eyes.


I have stamped around the edges of the paper with a couple of script stamps that come in the Pop Up collection.  The two sentiments also come in the set.


I have added gorgeous lace and flowers from Craft Heaven along with a seam binding bow.  The bird's nest charm from Craft Heaven is stunning with its little pearl eggs!  I have actually used the lilac seam binding but the poor light when I took the photo makes it look pink.


I hope you like it and that you had a lovely Easter.  Thanks for looking!

Zoom sur...

Hello to everyone,

Today I offer you a zoom on different dies that I love and which are perfect for making pretty cutouts on your cards ! Even if I really like to make cards in the form of tags, I chose, for this time, a square format of 14 x 14 cm.

For this card, I used two kinds of Crealies dies that I find fantastic : open scallop and rough edges. 
I used circles and squares but they also exist in rectangle.

I chose the "Denim & Girls" papers from Maja Design which are a beautiful blue !
My Tilda is colored with Copics markers as -almost- always ;)

Kisses to all and have a nice day !
Lilly

Live, Laugh, Love


Good afternoon!  I hope my post finds you all safe and well.  I have created a card in soft blues and greys today using Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics papers and gorgeous Tilda from the advent calendar.  I can't seem to find her in the Pop Fizz Clink collection with the rest of the advent calendar stamps, perhaps she will be released later.


I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique, as always.  I have stamped around her with some postmark stamps from past Magnolia collections.


The beautiful cherry blossoms and roses are from Craft Heaven...


...and so is the cute Live, Laugh, Love, charm and seam binding.


The cute postcards were cut from one of the Maja Design papers and I have used the gorgeous gate Doohickey die from Magnolia behind the image.


 I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Time to read

Hello to everyone,

The good news in this time of confinement is that it gives us more time to scrape !
So I took my favorite tag to make a page park this time. Small ideal gift to slip in an envelope and send to those we love and who are far from us...

Take good care of yourself

Welcome spring !

Hello to everyone,

In this very special and difficult time for all of us, I hope everything is going well for you and that you keep your spirits up ...

In my house the sun has come back on tiptoe and hunts slowly in winter, it was time: spring is tomorrow !

For the occasion, I have prepared a small seasonal menu, green like the hope of seeing better days ...

Take good care of yourself

Lilly

Mother's Day Card


Good morning!  Here in the UK it is Mother's Day this coming Sunday and this is the card I have made for my Mum.  Once again I have used the gorgeous Maja Design Little Street Cafe papers.


I have painted the Key to My Heart Tilda with Distress Inks, as always, using the no lines technique.  I have also added some Stardust Stickles to the dots around her.


I love this sweet little Bird House Doohickey from Magnolia.  The flowers around it are from Craft Heaven.


I love these Daisies too.  Perfect for Spring themed cards!


The gorgeous key charm and seam binding are also from Craft Heaven.


I have used the Heart Background Doohickey from Magnolia behind the image.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  Stay safe all of you!
