Craft Heaven DT - Spooky!

Good evening!  Our theme on the Craft Heaven Blog this week is Halloween/Spooky projects.  I have created a sugar skull shaped card and painted Wonderful Tilda from the You Are Invited collection with her face painted for Dia de Muertos.
I painted Tilda with Distress Inks as always, using the no lines technique.  I used Distress Inks and a fine black pen to create Tilda's face make-up, a white gel pen for the highlights in the flowers and eyes and a silver gel pen for the flower details on her dress.
 I used Doohickey dies to create the details on the sugar skull.  The heart nose is an off-cut heart from the heart tag from Volume 9 and a leaf Doohickey from Volume 9 to create the swirls near the nose and mouth.
The swirls on the forehead are actually the balloon string from the balloons Doohickey in Volume 5 and the heart is also from the heart tag.  The flowers around the eyes were cut with a flower Doohickey from Volume 6.
 I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the blog for more spooky ideas from the rest of the team.

Craft Heaven DT - Star Balloon Tilda


 Good evening!  I'm rather late posting this week's card for Craft Heaven: it's been one of those weeks!  I've used another gorgeous image from the Le Cirque Collection from Magnolia and some gorgeous papers from Maja Design.


I've painted Star Balloon Tilda with Distress Inks as always and added Stardust Stickles to her shoes, hat, dress and make-up and Glossy Accents to her balloon.


I have added some gorgeous lace from Craft Heaven and some pale pink roses.  The ribbons are from my stash.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  x

Craft Heaven DT - Join the Circus!

 Good morning!  Have you seen the new collection from Magnolia?  I am in love with them all!  I spent many happy hours over the weekend painting them all and here is my first card with one of them!  You will find the full collection at Craft Heaven.
 I painted Edwin Circus Manager with Distress Inks and added some dots to his cheeks with a white gel pen.  There was a large dot stamp in the kit which I have taken to be a juggling ball.  I added some foam balls in the same colours as the balls I have painted.
 The sentiment is also in the collection.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the Craft Heaven blog for more ispiration from the rest of the team. x

Craft Heaven DT - Sunny Days Tilda

Good morning!  I really need to start making Christmas cards but I couldn't resist using the last Pool Party stamp I bought before I start on them.
I painted Sunny Days Tilda with Distress Inks as always and added some details to the sea, sand and cocktail umbrella with a white gel pen.  The little clouds were cut with a die from Doohickey Volume 9.

I made all of the flowers myself for this card.  The rolled roses were made from the gorgeous Maja Design Sofiero paper and the large white ones were made from silk foam and the Magnolia Peony Petals die. 
The Swirl was cut with a die from Doohickey Volume 7 and the ribbon tags were cut from some ribbon from my stash.
The tab on top of the image was cut with the recipe tab from the Recipe Card Collection and I used the Scalloped Tag for the tags.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Craft Heaven DT - Froggy Wishes

Good morning!  After our summer break it is time to start up the Craft Heaven Blog again so here I am with my first Wednesday post.
As always I painted Tilda with Froggy with Distress Inks and added some dots to her cheeks with a white gel pen.  The cute heart buttons are from Craft Heaven.
The sentiment is an older Magnolia stamp.
I have used the Heart Tag Doohickey and the heart topped tag from Doohickey Volume 4.
The hearts are off cuts from the tag and I have used some gorgeous lace from Craft Heaven too.  The papers are all by Maja Design.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

All About Magnolia Challenge - Anything Goes

Good morning!  We are back after our summer break at All About Magnolia Challenge and our theme is 'Anything Goes'.  I'm still reminiscing about the glorious summer we had this year with today's card.
I have painted the stunning Toes in the Sand Tilda from the Pool Party Collection with Distress Inks.  I've also used a couple of Distress Ink markers to add details to the sand and Stickles to make her drink sparkle.
The gorgeous lace is from Craft Heaven and the sentiment die cut by Cut & Make which is just perfect this image.
I cut a couple of pennant flags from the pennants Doohickey from Volume 14 and used the Tilda's Ticket Doohickey for the tags.
The flip flop charm is from Craft Heaven and the cord I recycled from a clothes label.
I love it when you can use Doohickey dies for something other than their original design.  I used the Tower Doohickey to create the sandcastles by cutting it four times and then slicing the top off at different heights.  I used another pennant flag to top the sandcastle.
I hope you like it and can join us this month at All About Magnolia.  Thanks for looking!

Tilda in Paris


Good afternoon!  Today I'd like to share a card using Sightseeing Tilda from the Class Trip Collection.

I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique as always.  I also painted some paving stones around her with Distress Inks.

Today Tilda is sightseeing in Paris so I added the gorgeous Eiffel Tower die cut from Doohickey Volume 3.

I also used the Insta Love Cam Doohickey to make the camera and the Insta Stripes Doohickey for the film strips.

The newspaper piece behind the camera is a stamp from the Le Fleur upgrade stamp set and I made the flowers using a Doohickey from Volume 14.  The tags were made with the Denim Tag Doohickey.
