Craft Heaven DT - Have a Lovely Day

 


Good morning!  At last I am back with a new card.  I love this image from Magnolia, Flowery Tilda.  It makes me think of lovely spring and summer days having picnics.  The papers are from Reprint's Love and Romance Collection, this one has such a pretty pale green leaf pattern on it.  The gorgeous chipboard piece is by Lawerowe.  I love how these chipboard pieces give instant wow factor to projects.


As always, I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks.  I have stamped around the edges of the image mat with some postmark stamps from Magnolia.


The sentiment is from the Bunch of Lovely Sentiments set from Magnolia's Lovely Collection, stamped onto green paper from Pion Design.


I have painted the edges of the card with white Gesso to add a vintage look.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Yuletube Tutorial Number 3


 Good morning!  Today I have another card to show you that I created for the Magnolia Advent Calendar in December.  As with the previous creations there is only this photo which was taken for the end of the video.  Hope you're not missing the up close and angled shots too much - or maybe you prefer just the one photo?  This creation features my favourite stamp from the new Lovely Collection, Flowery Tilda, and various Doohickey dies.  The paper is by Maja Design.

Yuletube Tutorial Number 2

 


 Good morning!  Today I'd like to show you another one of the creations I made for the Magnolia Advent Calendar in December.  As with yesterday's post, as they were for video tutorials and some have been sent out, I only have the photos that appear at the end of the videos rather than my usual up close and angled shots!  This first one uses the cute little Love Balloon Tilda.  As always I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  The gorgeous papers are from Magnolia too as are all of the dies used, except the circle dies used to create the rainbow.

Yuletube Tutorial Number 1


Good morning!  I realised when I was going through my photo files that I haven't shared the creations I made for the Magnolia Advent Calendar in December on here.  As they were for video tutorials and some have been sent out, I only have the photos that appear at the end of the videos rather than my usual up close and angled shots!  This first one uses the gorgeous Wrapped Bouquet Tilda.  As always I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  The stunning papers are from Magnolia too.  I've had them for several years as they are in my "Too beautiful to use" selection!  I know I'm not the only one who has one of these paper selections lol!


 Here's the inside of the card.  If you would like to watch the tutorial then please click here.  Thanks for looking!

Craft Heaven DT - Valentine's Card

 


Good morning!  I have a Valentine's card to share with you today using some gorgeous Reprint Love & Romance papers and another cutie from Magnolia's Lovely Collection.  I finally, after years of coveting, acquired the Brides Bow Doohickey and have used it on the belly band of the card.  I have also used the Old Swedish Lace Doohickey for the beautiful lace edge.


This is what the card looks like once the belly band is removed.  Excuse my finger - it wouldn't stay closed for the photo otherwise!  I have used the Heart Frame Doohickey for the edges and the heart from the Woodland Tags Doohickey set for the aperture.  I have then framed the aperture with a piece by Scrapiniec which I cut in half so that it opens with the card.


The photo above shows the card fully opened.  Inside I have used more papers from the Reprint paper pack and Snail Mail Tilda, painted with Distress Inks.  I have also used one of the sentiments from the collection.


As always, Tilda was painted using the no lines technique.  I have added some stamping with various Magnolia post mark stamps around the edges of the image.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Magnolia DT - Sentiment Christmas Card

 

Good morning!  I'm almost there with showing these forgotten Christmas cards.  I have used Maja Design papers on this one and a simple embossed sentiment and some die cutting.  You could make lots of these in a relatively short time.  The sentiment is from the Big Christmas Sentiments set, embossed in gold.  The sentiment mat, the poinsettia and leaves were cut with dies from the Poinsettia and Old Paper set and the paper lace was cut with the Vintage Lace Doohickey.
