An invitation to: Tea and Cakes with Tilda

An Invitation to:
Tea and Cakes with Tilda

I’ve had some Tilda images knocking around my stash for about the last two years, and although I loved them (very much) I hadn’t actually done anything with them.  (more I think because I didn’t want to – because if I used them, then I wouldn’t have them anymore … fellow crafters will probably ‘get’ what I mean).

But I’m trying to cut down on my stash and use up some of the things I’m hanging onto because I’m fast running out of space in the Emporium  (aka ‘the craftroom’).  So in an effort to at least look as if I’m cutting down, I’m using some of those Tilda images.

It’s an Easel Card, so meant to be displayed ‘open’ so that the suprise interior is on show.   But when closed, the card looks like this:

The blue gingham paper was something I’ve had around the Emporium for a time, ditto the teeny tiny buttons and the padded gingham star.  But the interior paper – the pink roses & polka dots – was from a pad of pretty paper which I bought about four months ago. The ‘stitching’ was all done by hand using a very fine nib pen.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a blessed rest of your day, all.

Author: The Art of Cobwebs - aka:- thecobweboriumemporium

Hello. I'm 'Cobwebs'. I live in a wee little cottage in the South of England, aptly called Cobweb Cottage. This little dwelling really is a cobweb factory. Not inside (well, occasionally) - but outside - flipping heck! This information should give you a clue as to why my blog is called The Art of Cobwebs aka: The Cobweborium Emporium. I've been arty and crafty from a very young age, and although my crafts have sometimes turned a corner and taken me in another direction, I've always crafted in some way, shape or form. One day, in the blink of an eye, life changed somewhat for me and the consequences were many. I had to find a new way of being 'artistic'. Card making; scrap-booking; producing ATC's and ACEO's; needle felting; Polymer clay; painting- but in a more relaxed style than I had before, and sewing, - are all things which I visit, as and when life allows. I've fairy recently become a Textile Artist and am enjoying this new creative outlet very much as it offers me so much scope for letting my imagination run through a grassy field and feel the wind in my hair - (mentally, of course). I love to create. To make things. I truthfully believe that the best gifts in the world are those in which you've given your time, rather than your cash. Thank you so much for visiting. Please visit my blog (link below) and have a look around. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy, even if it's only a handful of jokes! (yes, seriously - there really are jokes!) Wishing you a truly blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. <3

  1. It’s gorgeous.

    I know what you mean though, so many things I haven’t used because they are so lovely and I might not do them justice. Sitting in a drawer isn’t doing them justice either so I shall get out my stash and start using it. Now!

    1. We’ll do it together! Although mind – it could take me months to make a visible dent in the haul I have here! lol. Aw, glad you like it e1aine.
      And thanks for the comment! I LOVE comments. They kind of keep us in touch with each other in the ‘good’ way, – (rather than the 140 [badly spelt] characters of Twitter, or the ‘schadenfreude’ which seems to be prevalant on the other social networking sites). 😦
