All About Magnolia DT - #30 Anything Goes

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share my card for the All About Magnolia Challenge where our theme for this month is 'Anything Goes'. 
 I painted the super cute Adorable Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added some white dots to her cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.
The gorgeous sentiment is from Stempelglede's Follow Your Heart stamp set, stamped with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
The cute little feet were cut with a Doohickey die from the Baby Accessories die set that came in the Advent Calendar.  The lace is from Craft Heaven and the flowers and doily are from my stash.
The tags were cut with a Doohickey tag die and threaded with white seam binding.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Craft Heaven DT - Get Well Card

 Good morning!  For today's creation for Craft Heaven I have used the super cute Tilda with Bunny Slippers to make a get well card.
 I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and stamped some post mark stamps from Magnolia around the edge with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
 How cute are these plasters?  Love this Doohickey!
 The sentiment is from the new Stempelglede Have a Beautiful Day stamp set.  I've stamped it with my new toy - the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform - I love it!  Expect to see lots more multi-coloured sentiments!  The stunning lace and the tiny white blossoms peeping out from the paper are from Craft Heaven.
 The cute chipboard bottle of pills is from Craft Heaven.  I've backed the pills part of it with pink paper.  The medicine spoon was cut from Vellum with a Doohickey die.
 The butterflies were stamped onto coffee filter paper using a stamp from the Have a Beautiful Day stamp set.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Craft Heaven DT - Birthday Card - Advent Calendar Stamps

Good morning!  I have another card to share with your for Craft Heaven using three of the amazing stamps that were in the Advent Calendar.  If you missed out on the calendar I'm sure the collection will be available very, very soon in the Craft Heaven store!  I needed to make cards for my Father-in-law's birthday and the Tilda with long, curly hair reminded me instantly of my daughter who also has long, curly hair, so she was perfect for a card for Granddad!

I teamed her with the new Edwin to represent my son.  I also masked the balloons from the advent calendar behind Tilda so that is looks like she's holding them behind her back.  The whole scene was painted with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've added shimmer to her dress with a Wink of Stella pen and golden confetti using Gold Stickles.

The sentiment is one from my stash.

The gorgeous paper is by Maja Design.  To complete the card I added some strips of card and paper ribbon.

 I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Stempelglede DT - Angel Collage

 Good morning!  Another Christmas Card to share today - I hope you are not getting bored of them!  I made ten of these that all looked the same apart from subtle changes in papers, so I have only photographed one of them.  I love this Angel Collage stamp from the Stempelglede Vintage Christmas stamp set.  I think this set will forever be my favourite!
 I stamp the photo stamps onto Glossy Paper using Coffee Archival ink.  I have inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The papers are by Maja Design from Craft Heaven.
I have used Magnolia Doohickey to create the pine frond and a Tim Holtz die to cut the holly leaves.
I have also added some beautiful lace along the bottom of the card.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Craft Heaven DT - Challenge #23 - 2017 Favourite Make

 Happy new year!  I hope you had fun seeing in the New Year last night!  It is time for our first challenge of 2018 on the Craft Heaven blog and our theme is 'Your 2017 favourite make'!  This sounded easy but actually, I always find it very difficult to choose a favourite card as each new card usually becomes my new favourite, however, I managed to decide in the end and chose this one from December featuring Tilda with Star.  I was so excited to receive her after seeing lots of other makes with her and she is definitely my favourite from the Christmas Party Collection!
 I painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and also added some Stardust Stickles to the Christmas tree frills and her star.  The postmarks around the edge of the image are an older Magnolia stamp.
 The sentiment is also from the new collection and comes in a set with another sentiment and some snowflakes.  I stamped it with Pine Needles distress ink.
 The gorgeous papers are by Maja Design and these two with stars and Christmas trees on were perfect to match Tilda!  I also added some lace, wooden buttons and ribbon from Craft Heaven to complete my card.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the team! x

2017 Reflection

Good afternoon!  As I do every year on New Year's Eve I'd like to share my favourite creations from each month of 2017.  I would also like to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope you have a wonderful time celebrating tonight!  See you in 2018!













Christmas Post

 Good morning!  Another Christmas card to share with you today.  I had fun making this post box for my children to give my parents!

I used the wonderful gingerbread hugs sentiment from Magnolia in replacement of the post collection times.

I also used an older Magnolia crown stamp, embossed with clear powder, to create the crown.  The ER were cut with a Tim Holtz die and the lock was cut with a die from one of the Online Magnolia Day kits.

I used Gesso and crushed glass glitter to create the snow.

A hellebore and berries from my stash and some pine fronds cut with a Doohickey die complete the card.

To cut the detail at the top of the post box I used a Tim Holtz die.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
