Piano Birthday Card

 Good morning!  Today I have another card to share with you that I have created with the dies from Doohickey Volume 19, and once again it is an accordian card.  The papers are by Maja Design from the Celebration Collection.  I used the piano Doohickey to cut the shape of the card and used a Spellbinder circle to cut the centre panel which is decorated with the music stave Doohickey.


I have also used the music stand and vinyl record Doohickey dies to decorate the front, along with some lace and flowers from my stash.

The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is an older Magnolia stamp.

 When you open the card the front panel swings inwards to reveal a violin, cut with the Doohickey die from the Danish Royal Opera Stamp and Cutz set.  I have also used the vinyl records again.


I have used another Magnolia sentiment on the reverse of the front sentiment panel.


I have cut the violin in kraft and gold cardstock.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

CD Card

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share with you a fun card I have created using the Doohickey dies from Volume 19 - Music.  I made it for my brother's birthday but it would work equally well for a teenager I think.  I have used acetate and silver cardstock to create the CD background, drawing round an actual CD to get the correct size.  I used Spellbinder circle dies for the centre holes.
 I cut the tape player in silver, black and orange and then used different elements from each colour to create the tape player.

I have used the two star Doohickey dies in several colours on the card.


I have also used the vinyl record and musical note Doohickey dies.  The paper strip with stars on is from a Maja Design paper and the ribbon is from my stash.



I have added the die cuts on different thicknesses of foam pads to add lots of interesting dimension to the card.


Here's a side view showing the inside of the card which I covered in co-ordinating blue paper as it is visible through the hole in the CD from the front.

1st Birthday Card

Good morning!  I am back with another card for a little cutie's first birthday using lots of Doohickey dies and Magnolia stamps.  When I received my Doohickey 19 kit I was particularly inspired by the gorgeous accordian card by Jiwon.  I have never made one of these so thought I would have a go.  It was surprisingly simple to do!

All of the papers are by Maja Design from the Denim and Friends Collection.  I have used Adorable Edwin from the You Are Invited Collection and the Sweet Moon from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection.  I have painted both with Distress Inks before cutting them out to mount onto the centre panel of the accordian card.

I have used lots of Doohickey dies from the Volume 13 kit, Sweet Pea.  They are all perfect for baby cards.

When you open up the card it looks like this!  I love how it opens up so unexpectedly - expect to see more of these from me from now on!

The front panel swings into the middle of the card as you can see.

On the back panel, which also swings into the middle of the card, I have used the stars and cloud Doohickeys from Volume 13.
I have also used the sweet little elephant, tag and nappy pin...

...and the cuter than cute whale!  The one is from my stash.

 Here is what the back panel looks like when the card is closed.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Sweet Treats

 Good morning!  I am back with another card for Craft Heaven DT using lots of gorgeous Magnolia goodies.  I have used papers by Maja Design.
I have painted Cotton Candy Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique as always.  I have added Startdust Stickles to the candy floss and the heart on her t-shirt.
 I have used two tiers of the cake Doohickey from Volume 5 and topped it with a butterfly from the papers.
 I have used ruffle trim from my stash along with pale pink roses and ivory resin roses from Craft Heaven.
 I have used the pennant flags Doohickey from Volume 5 along the top of the card.
 The clock face and hands are from one of the recent Magnolia Pop Up boxes.  I made the little pin wheels myself but Magnolia also do a fantastic Doohickey die to make lace edged ones!  It is on my wish list!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  x

I have made orchids from coffee filter paper using the orchid Doohickey and added some gorgeous lace from Craft Heaven.  The papers are by Maja Design from the Denim  and Joyous Winter Days Collections.
I have also used the bird cage Doohickey from Volume 3 and the Bloomy Tag Doohickey.

Life is a Rollercoaster!

 Good evening!  I am excited to share today's card with you.  It is one of those cards where the idea in my head actually turned out exactly how I imagined!  I have used Maja Design Celebration paper for the background of the card and I have cut the top with a die from Doohickey Volume 9.


I have painted Rollercoaster Tilda from the Class Trip Collection with Distress Inks using the no lines technique as always.  I have also used a white gel pen for the dots on her eyes and cheeks.


 As soon as I saw this fun image I thought that the Insta Film Strips Doohickey would look great as rollercoaster tracks - I'm so pleased with them!


They really make it look like Tilda is on a huge rollercoaster!  This card features a fun surprise for the recipient - click on the video link below to see how it works.

Ninja Birthday Card

Good morning!  I have a cute boy's card to share with you today that I created for a little boy who loves Lego Ninjago.  Of course, I had to paint Ninja Edwin from the Sakura Collection to match his favourite character, Kai.


I also painted Edwin's face yellow so that he looks like a Lego figure rather than a real person.  It worked pretty well I think.


The backing paper for the card is by Maja Design and then I have used lots of coloured card from my stash to create the rest of the details.  I have used the Tower Doohickey to create the Ninjago Temple.  I cut the roof part twice and snipped the point off one to use it lower down on the tower.


I used the fence Doohickey from Doohickey kit 6 and cut away the grass part to make the bridge.  I have also used the Cloud Doohickey several times to create the rocky edges around the rest of the scene.  


I used a circle punch to create the tab on the side of the card.


 Pull the tab and see what happens!
