Craft Heaven DT - A Spring Card

Good morning!  Today I'd like to share a card I've created using one of the new stamps released on Magnolia Day and papers from the gorgeous Maja Design Summertime paper collection.

I have painted the sweet Tilda in her magnolia flower with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've added dots to her cheeks, eyes and hair bow with a white gel pen.

The beautiful sentiment comes with the image, along with a few other background stamps.  The sentiment was cut out with a die from the Doohickey Volume 9.  

The butterflies were cut from a Pion Design paper.  The beautiful pink lace is also from Craft Heaven.

How cute is this birdhouse charm?  It does come with a hanging loop on it but I snipped it off so that it looked like it was propped in the tree.  I created the magnolia flowers from Silk Foam using a Doohickey die.  The branches were cut with the Sakura Branch Doohickey die.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

TOMIC Inspiration - Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  I hope you are enjoying the Easter weekend.  We have made, and already eaten several, Easter nest cakes here and are looking forward to this morning's egg hunt!  You may have already seen today's project if you tuned into Magnolia's debut on Hochanda TV where my lovely team mate Becky created live on the show.  I'm sharing it today on the TOMIC blog.  I saved a pretty yellow egg box ready for decorating as an Easter gift - these are a great idea to give small eggs in.

I had to get an Easter bunny on here, of course, so I chose the sweet Tilda with Little Bunny from the Sunbeam Collection and painted her with Distress Inks as always.  I added Stardust Stickles to her head band and the frills on her pockets.  I also used the cute Sunlight stamp in the background.

To add some extra interest to the image I stamped her face and the bunny's tail twice so that I could decoupage the image.

I used the bird Doohickey from Vintage Box 5 and the recipe card from the Recipe Card Collection to cut out the image.

The sentiment is also from the Sunbeam collection and I've used the feather Doohickeys and flower spray Doohickey from Vintage Box 5 too.  The daffodils were created using the Daffodil Doohickey and stamens from my stash.  I made the little eggs from air drying clay before painting with white acrylic paint, inking with chalk ink and adding the speckles with a Distress Ink marker.

I added the same embellishments at the other side of the egg box.

I made a belly band for the egg box and edged it with lace Doohickey from Vintage Box 3, cut several times.  It makes such a pretty edge! 

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Have a wonderful Easter!

Craft Heaven DT - Get Well Soon

Good morning!  I am back with another card using a Magnolia stamp from the Get Well Collection.  The papers are from Maja Design's gorgeous Summertime paper pad.

I painted Tilda with Broken Leg using Distress Inks as always and added some details to her dress, cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.  I have placed tiny pearls to the scallop edge around the image.

The sentiment comes with this stamp.  The font is so beautiful on this one!  The gorgeous blossoms are from Craft Heaven and the sticking plasters were cut with the Heart Band Aid Doohickey die.

 I have cut more sticking plasters for the other side of the image.  The rose is from Craft Heaven too.

The tiny hearts were cut with the Heart Band Aid Doohickey too and the gorgeous heart backgrounds were cut with the Heart Background Doohickey die.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Craft Heaven DT - Happy Easter

Good morning!  I have an Easter card to share with you today using the gorgeous Tilda With Little Chickens from last year's Sunbeam Collection.  I've teamed her with one of my favourite papers from Maja Design's Denim Collection.

I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added white dots to her cheeks and eyes using a white gel pen.

I have used the Daffodil Doohickey and Foamiran to make the Daffodils.  Before assembling I inked the centres of the flowers with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.  I've also added some blue roses to add a pop of colour.  The fence was cut with the Lovely Fence Doohickey and the lace is from Craft Heaven.

I've used the banner Doohickey from Volume 9 and the Happy Easter sentiment is from Magnolia too.  The cute clouds were cut with a die from Doohickey Volume 4.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to make your own Easter cards.  Pop over to the Craft Heaven blog to see some more inspiration from the Design Team.  Thanks for looking!

Breakfast at Tilda's - GDT for Magnolia-licious

 Good afternoon!  I am excited to bring you a brand new Magnolia stamp today, designed by Pauline especially for Magnolia-licious, and available exclusively from the Magnolia-licious store!

The stamp set is called "Breakfast at Tilda's".  As well as gorgeous Tilda, eating her pancakes, you get two different blueberry designs and the sentiment!  As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I also added some Glossy Accents to the syrup and syrup bottle to make them look realistic.

I even made pancakes!  I've used Doohickey dies from Doohickey Kit 14 and the Recipe Card Collection to create the little breakfast accessories.

Of course eggs are required to make pancake batter so they were a perfect die to use on this card!  I made the mixing bowl from the teapot and muffin Doohickey dies.  I've cut the top off the teapot diecut and used the muffin top to decorate the bowl.  You can see on the side of the bowl one of the blueberries that come with the stamp set.

 I've also used the whisk and spoon from the Recipe Card Collection on the other side of the image.

I've added the sentiment to the base of the easel card along with another blueberry.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  Pop over to the Magnolia-licious store to grab your "Breakfast at Tilda's" stamp set before they sell out!

TOMIC #2 - Easter (& an animal or egg)

Good evening!  I am a little late with my TOMIC challenge card this month as I have been very busy behind the scenes with some Magnolia projects.  I'll tell you more about them another time, but for now I present my Easter card!  Once again I have used the gorgeous Sakura Background and Daffodil Doohickies on my project.

Did you join in Magnolia Day or buy any of the kits?  This little cutie is from one of the kits - isn't she amazing?  As always I have coloured her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've also added Stardust Stickles to her wings.  To create the Easter eggs I cut egg shaped frames with Spellbinders dies and then cut the Sakura Background cut outs to match.  I think they look so pretty!

The butterfly edge is by Joy Crafts and the leaves were cut with an older Doohickey die.

The daffodils were cut from Foamiran this time.  I have used ivory Foamiran and inked it slightly in the centre with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this month for the TOMIC challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations!

Thanks for looking.
