DT Magnolia Mini Stamps~Vintage Tag

Here is the Magnolia mini stamps world ! I made this tag with Magnolia doohickey Vintage tag and mini stamps, so you can imagine how small and cute( of course!) is this tag.
I simply teared two small patterned papers from Magnolia papers collection and distressed with Ranger Vintage photo distress ink. I used a strip of wire to make a heart, added some Ranger Star dust stickles on the tag.

Tilda is a mini stamp as well as the "see you later" sentiment.
I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and distressed with Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink. The two white dotty is Ranger liquid Pearl which I bought from my dear Camilla's hubby webshop,

The small cute flowers are gift from
they have a huge range of paper flowers and their shipping is afforable too.

I used distress inks to color mini Tilda, it's real easy:-)
Dress: Victorian Velvet
Hair: Walnut Stain
Shoe: Pumice Stone

Some people asked me about the mini stamps, how small they are?
Here I also took 2 photos that to make a comparison. From the photo you know that how small and cute is the mini Tilda. You can click the picture to make it more clearer.

This is not Tilda for sure:-)) ha ha.....this is Yileen, my dd, she just had her birthday two days ago, oh my...I just can't remember how the time flies.....she is my sweet honey:-))

OK, I hope that you enjoyed and inspired by my creation, if you live in USA and Canada you can get the mini stamps at, if not you will get them in this Spring :-))
Have a nice day !

Magnolia A greeting of Love

Since I am still working on my card for "You are so special" collection and the mini stamps, I would love to share with you a hanger/tag that I made couple weeks ago.
I used the last christmas collection stamp, Tilda with the post and A greeting of love wording. It's a very simple and easy to make. Just use a doily as a base, I cut spellbinder round nestie to make the round , and I also used lacey round nestie for the background.

Here is the close up look for the nesties. I also embossed a cuttlebug embossing folder with my cuttlebug machine and ditressed with Ranger Walnut Stain.I distressed all the edges with walnut stain too and added some sparkle with Ranger Ice stickles.

I colored Tilda with distress inks.Hair: Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Dress: Weathered Wood,Post: Pumice Stone, Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattared Rose.
I also added some blue paper roses on the hanger, doesn't it looks romantic?

By the way, I will spend my holidays in Singapore for a couple of days in mid of March, if you like to meet me for some cardmaking ideas exchanges, or some tips sharing...or just cuppa tea...let me know...we can meet up...I would love to meet new friends in crafting:-))

Thanks for looking and hope that you have a nice day! Don't forget to check back for my new cards~You are so special collection ~

You are so special Collection ~ Tilda with small gift

This stamp is so cute, I bought it from the winter kit club.I stamped her on a oval cardstock and mat with a bigger oval cardstock again. I also stamped manuscript stamp on foam and cut out with Nestie scallopped oval.
I colored with Ranger distress inks~ Weathered wood for her dress, stocking. For hair I colored with tye dye, vintage photo and walnut stain.
I colored her background with punice stone and walnut stain.

I used Ranger crackle accent on her dress to make it crackle and also glue a lot of small flowers on the card.
Can you notice the star border on the focal point? it's also from the You are so special collection , it's called "shooting stars border"
I also used Ranger Ice stickles around the oval cardstock.

                    I stamped "A greeting of love " on the tag die and distressed with walnut stain. I sewn all the edges and the brad was from Bo Bonny collection.
                    Hope that you like my card as I do, I am so sorry that the pictures are not clear, I had a hard time with my camera:-( Enjoy your sunday and see you next week !
