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.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

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!

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

TOMIC DT - Sea and Summer

Good morning!  It is time for another challenge over on The Official Magnolia Inspirational Challenge Blog and our new theme is "Sea and Summer".  This challenge will run for the whole of June and July so you have plenty of time to get crafting to join us!  I have made a flip flop easel card using some gorgeous papers from Maja Design's Summertime paper collection.

I have used Seashell Tilda from the Sea Breeze Collection and painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added some spots to her headscarf, eyes and cheeks using a white gel pen. 

I have used the orchid Doohickey dies to create the orchids from coffee filter paper and added details to them with Copic markers.

 I have added a couple of flip flop charms from Craft Heaven with some twine.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at The Official Magnolia Inspirational Challenge Blog.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous cards.  Thanks for looking!
