Craft Heaven DT - Santa Tilda Shaker Card


I'm making good progress with my Christmas cards this year and have this shaker card to share with you today using the cute Santa Tilda from Magnolia.  I have used Maja Design papers from the Joyous Winterdays Collection.

As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added Stardust Stickles to her gloves and hat tassle.

Inside the shaker I have used the Snowy Forest Doohickey and the winter scene from Doohickey Volume 7 layered in front of it.  I have used some fake snow from my stash inside the shaker.

The 'Let it Snow!' sentiment is from the I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas Holiday Pop Up stamp set.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Craft Heaven DT - Snow Angel Card

Good afternoon!  I'm excited to show you today's Christmas card that I have made to give to my daughter this year.  As soon as I saw the image of Tilda making a snow angel I wanted to see if I could make her actually make snow angel movements.  

The card base was cut with the Heartfelt Doohickey die and the papers are by Maja Design and the silver glitter card is from my stash - I recycled it from some Christmas crackers!

As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added Stardust Stickles to the snowflake on her trousers.

I have used the background snowflake Doohickey die from the Aspen Holidays collection by Magnolia behind the image and coated it in Stickles too.   I have also used the snowy forest Doohickey but have cut the row of trees in half and layered them up.  The blossoms are from Craft Heaven and the 'I'm dreaming of a white Christmas' sentiment comes with Tilda in the stamp set of the same name.

The smaller snowflakes were cut with the snowflake Doohickeys from the Cocoa Tilda Stamp n Cutz set and the hearts in the centres are off cuts from the large snowflake die.  The 'Daughter' was cut with a die from my stash.

Here's a little video clip showing Tilda making her snow angel!

I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  Stay safe!

Northern Lights Christmas Card


Good afternoon!  Today I have a clean and simple Christmas card to show you using the gorgeous stamps from the Northern Light Holiday Pop Up set by Magnolia.  I didn't intend to make a clean and simple card but once I'd finished painting the scene I added the Northern Lights to the background using the wet on wet technique and then thought it was too pretty to surround with lots of embellishments.  I have simply mounted the picture onto some Maja Design plain paper and cut the edge with a Magnolia edge Doohickey.

I decided instead to just add the sentiment, which comes with the set, and some 'snowflakes' in the form of the circles that were the waste product of the edge Doohickey die I used for the card base!  I also added Stardust Stickles to all of the stamped snowflakes.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!
