Craft Heaven and TOMIC DT - Summer Days


Good evening!  I can't believe it has been a month since my last post!  I have been so busy lately and creating a lot of things behind the scenes which I will be showing you shortly.  Today I have a card for Craft Heaven Shop and also as a remind for our TOMIC challenge that runs all summer.  I have used the gorgeous Maja Design Summertime paper pad.  All of the papers in this collection are so beautiful it is hard to chose what to use!


I have painted Lazy Day Tilda from the Pool Party collection with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also used the postmark stamp from the With Love From Paris stamp collection at the side of the image.


The strawberries were made with Maja papers and the Magnolia Strawberry die and the flowers and lace are from Craft Heaven.


The ice-cream was also cut with a Magnolia doohickey and I've topped it with strawberries cut from one of the Maja Design papers.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Craft Heaven DT - Anniversary Card


Good evening!  I have a wedding anniversary card to share with you today for Craft Heaven using the stunning Mrs & Mr Magnolia from Magnolia's You Are Invited collection.  I have used papers from the gorgeous Denim & Girls paper collection.


I have painted the image with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added some subtle sparkle to Tilda's veil using a Wink of Stella pen.  I have also added Startdust Stickles to her crown.  The gorgeous chipboard circle is by Scrapiniec.


The seam binding and heart key are from Craft Heaven and I have used the Heart Background Doohickey either side of the image.


The flowers were made using the Orchid Doohickey die and the centres have been inked with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

Father's Day Motion Card



Good afternoon!  Today I would like to share with you the Father's Day card I have made for my dad featuring Fixer Upper Edwin from the Fixer Upper Collection and Edwin's Oldsmobile car from the Summer Memories Collection.


I have painted Edwin with Distress Inks using the no lines techique and added dots to his cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen before cuttin him out.  He is placed on 3D pads.  All of the papers on this card are by Maja Design with the exception of the paper I have used for the floor and the scene outside the window.


Edwin's Oldsmobile was also painted with Distress Inks.  I created a DAD numberplate to replace the CUBA one that is on the stamp.  I have covered the paintwork and windows of the car with Glossy Accents and the headlights with Stardust Stickles.


The window was cut with a Doohickey die from Volume 9 and I placed a section of paper from Pion Design for the scene outside the window.  I've added Glossy Accents to the window panes too.


The metal store ornament from my stash is a great way of adding some interest to cards for males.


The cute hammer and brush are charms from Craft Heaven.


I love using dies in different ways.  The ramp is made from the bottom of the Eiffel Tower Doohickey from Volume 3!  The oil patches are part of a stamp from the Magnolia Day Art stamp kit.  I just inked the larger splatters.

Watch my video to see how this card moves!  It took a while to figure out how to make the car move up when I wanted the pull tab to be on the side rather than on top but I love how it turned out!

Craft Heaven DT - Tilda in Paris

 

Good afternoon!  I'd like to share a card featuring one of my favourite techniques today: painting in sepia.  I love this technique for a few reasons; it is quicker than painting in colour, it is very effective and it looks like old photos, which I love!  I have used my favourite Maja Design paper at the moment, Stonewashed from the Denim & Friends collection.  I had to buy more of it so that I don't run out!

I masked Tilda and the Eiffel Tower images from the With Love From Paris stamp kit from Magnolia Day 2017 and painted the whole scene with Walnut Stain Distress ink using the no lines technique.  I added a few detail with a white gel pen.  I stamped the cute little dog separately and painted her in the same way before cutting her out and adding to the 'photo' with 3D pads.  The card was cut with the heart frame doohickey from Magnolia Vintage Box 5.



I used the birdcage and bird doohickeys from Vintage Box 5 and the post mark stamp is from the With Love From Paris stamp set.
