Craft Heaven DT - You Are Invited

Good afternoon!  This week on the Craft Heaven blog we're showcasing stamps from the You Are Invited collection and Celebration papers from Maja Design.

I have used the Happy New Year text stamp.  I have stamped it onto vellum and embossed it with a mixture of copper and gold embossing powders.

I have also used the Big Clock stamp and dies from the Tilda in Wonderland collection and embossed the hands in the same way.

 I have used the Invitation die from the You Are Invited Collection for the base of the card.  As it wasn't quite wide enough to support the clock image I have cut it out twice and glued it together.  The leaf from the invitation set has also been embossed.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

All About Magnolia Challenge - All About Wings

Good evening!  Today I'd like to share my card for our reminder post at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Our theme for this month is All About Wings.  Perfect for Christmas cards as there are so many gorgeous Tildas to chose from that have wings, and a couple of Edwins too!

I have chosen one of my favourite Christmas Tildas from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection.  She reminds me of my daughter so I have used it to make her Christmas card for this year!  As always I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added Stardust Stickles to her wings and the gift and also to the Snowy Circle stamp which is from the So Jolly Under the Mistletoe Collection.

I have used the snowflakes Doohickey from the Aspen Holidays Collection to create the snowflakes from silver glitter paper recycled from last year's Christmas crackers and added gems to the centres.

I have died white seam binding with Tatterred Rose Distress Ink, to match the ribbon on the gift.  The papers are by Maja Design.

The 'Daughter' die cut is from my stash.

 I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at All About Magnolia Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x

Tilda Cirque

 Good morning!  Today's card for Craft Heaven features another gorgeous stamp from the Le Cirque collection, Tilda Cirque, and beautiful Maja Design papers.

 As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've added Startdust Stickles to the hearts on her top and the bow in her hair.  I have used a white gel pen for the dots on her cheeks and eyes.

 I have used several Doohickey dies on this card.  The row of presents and the dies for the flowers are from Doohickey Volume 4 and the birds are from The Vintage Box 5.  I have also used the Doily Doohickey behind the image.

 The bird cage stamp and die are also from Vintage Box 5.  The scrabble letter ribbon is from my stash.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
