Angel Christmas Card


Good morning!  I have another Hochanda TV project to show you today - a Christmas card this time, using the gorgeous Christmas Angel.  I have used the heart frame Doohickey for the card base.

As always Tilda is painted with Distress Inks.  I have added Stardust Stickles to her wings and halo.

The sentiment is from the Christmas Sentiments set and the leaves were cut with a die from the Poinsettia and Old Paper Doohickey set.

The poinsettia was made with dies from the same set.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

A Christmas Tag

Good morning!  I was looking through my photos yesterday and found several projects that I made last year for the Hochanda TV show that I haven't blogged!  I have used Old Paper Doohickey to cut the tag and the Santa Tilda/Edwin, painted with Distress Inks.

I have topped the tag with the So Wrapped Doohickey Snowflake cut from glitter paper.

I cut the Light Bulbs with String from the same glitter paper and the bulbs from white cardstock, coate with Crackle Accents.  A touch of Gesso here and there for a snowy touch completes the tag.

 I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Craft Heaven DT - LadyBug Tilda

Good morning!  Today I have a card to share using papers from Maja Design's Miles Apart Collection and another cutie from the Fluttering Butterfly Collection by Magnolia.

I have painted LadyBug Tilda with Distress Inks as always.  I have also used the sentiment from Spread Your Wings Tilda and the dandelion seedheads from Spread Your Wings and Flying By Tildas.

I have used the Angel Wing and Orchids Doohickey dies and the small butterfly from the Butterfly Dream Doohickey Die set.

I have also added lace and flowers from Craft Heaven to complete the card.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Butterfly Box


Good afternoon!  I have a gift box to show you today using Magnolia papers and dies and the gorgeous Flying By Tilday from the Fluttering Butterfly Collection.

I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique as always and she is sitting on top of a a Doohickey Butterfly diecut.

I have used beautiful Forget-me not paper by Magnolia and every side of the gift box has the Bride Bow Doohickey on it.

The exciting thing about this gift box is how it opens - at the corner!

The butterfly diecuts are cut in half so that they open with each side of the lid...

Tilda is only attached on one side...

This is the box when it is fully open!  I have used the Tic Tact Toe Doohickey die from the Lovely Collection on the bottom of the box.   All of the flowers and the seam binding are from Craft Heaven.

Another view, just because!

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Craft Heaven DT - Lantern Tilda


Good afternoon!  I am back with another Christmas card to show you using Lantern Tilda by Magnolia, Magnolia Doohickeys and Maja Design papers.

As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added some Stardust stickles to the snow flakes and lantern light.   The card shape was cut with the frame die from Magnolia Vintage Box 4.

I have used the Slender Firs Doohickey, So Wrapped Merry Christmas tag and So Wrapped Snowflake tag along with cherry blossoms and roses.  The deer is from Magnolia Vintage Box 6.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Quick Christmas Cards


Good afternoon!  I have some quick and easy cards to share with you today using the gorgeous new Maja Design Christmas papers, Traditional Christmas, and Magnolia sentiment stamps.  All five cards took less than an hour - exactly what was needed when I had last minute cards to make at the weekend.  I love how they turned out though.  I just love round cards!

Each card is more or less the same: just a different sentiment and the stars are not all in the same places depending on where they fitted best with the sentiments.

All of the sentiments have been embossed with gold embossing powder.

I just love the cute little elves on these papers!  They are so cute that I cannot bring myself to use the accompanying cut out sheet with them on lol!

All of the edges have been inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I hope you like them and thanks for looking!

Good afternoon!  Today I have another Christmas card to show using the gorgeous new Maja Design papers and some cute dies.  I've used an old Magnolia stamp for the image - a gorgeous Santa.

As always I have used the no lines technique and painted Santa with Distress Inks.  I have added Stardust Stickles to his buckle, beard and some of the presents and bows.  I have also added Glitter Snow in drops to create the snow flurry.  How gorgeous is the 'believe' die cut from Tonic Studios?  I love it!  

The tags were cut with the Woodland Tags heart shape - I love these and have used them a lot already.  Here I have made the exterior 'bark' white and the centre kraft cardstock to resemble pieces taken from a silver birch tree.  The 25 was cut with numbers from the Thinlits Elle Lower Case die set.  I am creating a December Daily with my daughter and we are using the set a lot!

I have also added vintage white seam binding and tiny bells from Craft Heaven.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!
