Flower Shop Tilda

 Good morning!  Today's card for Craft Heaven features the gorgeous Flower Shop Tilda from the Upgrade Le Fleur collection.
 I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique as always.  I have also used the text stamp from the Boiléve set around the image.
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.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

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!


 I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Tilda Throws Away Hearts

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share my card for the Craft Heaven blog using papers from Maja Design and the sweet Tilda Throws Away Hearts from Magnolia.  The card shape was cut with a Doohickey frame die from Vintage Box 5.
 I painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique as always.  I've added some lace details to her dress using a white gel pen.
 The sentiment is from the Stempelglede Just a Note stamp set.  The butterflies were cut with a Martha Stewart punch and the rose and the flowers were cut with Doohickey dies.
I also added some lace and a chipboard piece from Craft Heaven along with some button twine and a white and pink rose.  The flowers were made from ecru foamiran and pink stamens. 
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Craft Heaven for this month's challenge.  Pop over to the blog for more inspiration.

Thanks for looking! x

May The Force Be With You!

 Good evening!  I am back after a little break with my latest card for Craft Heaven using the super cute stamps from the Galaxy Collection and paper from Maja Design.
My little nephew loves Star Wars so these two were perfect to use on his card.  The Maja Design paper was perfect for a 'starry sky'!  As always, I've painted the images with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also added Glossy Accents to the droid, lightsabre and Tilda's boots.
I also used the moon stamp from the Galaxy Collection, stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink and shaded with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I've added some lustre with a Wink of Stella pen.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Spring Shadow Box Card


Good evening!  I'm a little late blogging my All About Magnolia post today as it was back to work after the Easter holiday (sad face).  This month over at All About Magnolia Challenge our theme is 'All About Spring'.  A perfect excuse to use the super sweet Tilda With Little Chickens from the Sunbeam Collection.


I have made a shadow box card of Tilda standing underneath the Cherry Blossoms.  I love the sight of Cherry Blossom in the spring, I have one in my garden and it always cheers me up to see it!  I spent a very long time die cutting the tiny little lilac flowers from the Lilac Doohickey from last year's Summer Collection to create the blossom on the trees and all of the fallen blossom on the floor.  I have a photo of my daughter dressed from head to toe in pink, standing in a wood of pink Azalea that is above her and on the floor: this was the inspiration for this scene.


I filled the rest of the card with things that come to mind for me when I think of spring.  Primroses using some Prima flowers of the correct shade, umbrellas using the Umbrella Doohickey and some birds using a die from Vintage Box 5.


The leaf sprigs were also cut with a die from Vintage Box 5 and I added a few blossoms to them with the Lilac die.  The papers are all by Maja Design.


Another sweet bird and a few b

Tutu Thank You

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share a thank you card I made for a lovely neighbour who made my daughter's first tutu recently.  Of course I had to put a tutu on it and the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die came in rather handy!
I cut the tailor's dummy from thick brown cardstock and sticky back canvas and cut the canvas to suite the top of a tutu.  All the edges have been inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I used lots of folded tulle to create the tutu. 
I used the buttons and cotton bobbins from the Tim Holtz die too.  The lace is from Craft Heaven and the flowers are from my stash.
 I also used the Magnolia Doohickey sewing machine, cut from black cardstock and kraft cardstock for the bobbin.  I've even threaded it with cotton!
 My favourite 'thank you' die across the centre of the card.  The background paper is from a Magnolia kit.
I used button twine from my stash on the bobbins.
 I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
