Craft Heaven DT - Lantern Tilda


Good afternoon!  I am back with another Christmas card to show you using Lantern Tilda by Magnolia, Magnolia Doohickeys and Maja Design papers.

As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added some Stardust stickles to the snow flakes and lantern light.   The card shape was cut with the frame die from Magnolia Vintage Box 4.

I have used the Slender Firs Doohickey, So Wrapped Merry Christmas tag and So Wrapped Snowflake tag along with cherry blossoms and roses.  The deer is from Magnolia Vintage Box 6.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Quick Christmas Cards


Good afternoon!  I have some quick and easy cards to share with you today using the gorgeous new Maja Design Christmas papers, Traditional Christmas, and Magnolia sentiment stamps.  All five cards took less than an hour - exactly what was needed when I had last minute cards to make at the weekend.  I love how they turned out though.  I just love round cards!

Each card is more or less the same: just a different sentiment and the stars are not all in the same places depending on where they fitted best with the sentiments.

All of the sentiments have been embossed with gold embossing powder.

I just love the cute little elves on these papers!  They are so cute that I cannot bring myself to use the accompanying cut out sheet with them on lol!

All of the edges have been inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I hope you like them and thanks for looking!

Good afternoon!  Today I have another Christmas card to show using the gorgeous new Maja Design papers and some cute dies.  I've used an old Magnolia stamp for the image - a gorgeous Santa.

As always I have used the no lines technique and painted Santa with Distress Inks.  I have added Stardust Stickles to his buckle, beard and some of the presents and bows.  I have also added Glitter Snow in drops to create the snow flurry.  How gorgeous is the 'believe' die cut from Tonic Studios?  I love it!  

The tags were cut with the Woodland Tags heart shape - I love these and have used them a lot already.  Here I have made the exterior 'bark' white and the centre kraft cardstock to resemble pieces taken from a silver birch tree.  The 25 was cut with numbers from the Thinlits Elle Lower Case die set.  I am creating a December Daily with my daughter and we are using the set a lot!

I have also added vintage white seam binding and tiny bells from Craft Heaven.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Craft Heaven DT - Ice-Skating Card


Good evening!  I have another shaker card to show you today - but this time it is a shaker card and a slider card!

As usual I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also used a white gel pen for the dots on her cheeks and eyes and Stardust Stickles on her ice skates and hat tassle.

Inside the shaker I have used the cute winter scene from Doohickey Volume 7 and pretend snow from my stash.

Watch the video to see Tilda in action!

Behind Tilda I have used the Winter Tree Doohickey die and used some of the pieces to make little drifts of snow too.  I have added touches of Glitter Snow around the edges of the card.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!
