Froggy Wishes..

Good morning!

After our summer break it is time to start up the Craft Heaven Blog again so here I am with my first Wednesday post.

As always I painted Tilda with Froggy with Distress Inks and added some dots to her cheeks with a white gel pen.  The cute heart buttons are from Craft Heaven.

The sentiment is an older Magnolia stamp.

I have used the Heart Tag Doohickey and the heart topped tag from Doohickey Volume 4.

The hearts are off cuts from the tag and I have used some gorgeous lace from Craft Heaven too.  The papers are all by Maja Design.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Sticky Notes with Distress Oxide Inks

Hello everyone,
good to be back 😊
Today I want to show some little sticky notepads I designed with almost all of the pretty Oxide Inks from Tim Holtz.
These ink pads are so great. You can create so different projects with them. I love to create backgrounds with them. And all you need is the ink pad(s), some (watercolour)paper, spray bottle and a heat tool (or toaster). Easy, right?
These little sticky notes I have made for our big craft fair last weekend in Hagen (Germany) called "Stempel Mekka". This are swaps.
I created all pieces in different colours with different images. The images are from C.C. Designs and Purple Onion Designs. They are coloured with Distress Inks (refills).
The word under the critters means "NOTES".
 Hope you like them.
This are long sides of my note pades.

Vintage Style Leaving Cards

Good morning!  Today I have two cards for the price of one to share with you!  I made these cards for two of my colleagues who left last month to move on to pastures new.  I love this Stempelglede sentiment from the Follow Your Heart set for 'Sorry you're leaving' cards.  

I have used Maja Design Celebration Papers for both cards.  The cards were cut with a Magnolia Doohickey frame die from Volume 13.

I have used some beautiful lace from Craft Heaven on both cards along with Scrapiniec chipboard pieces.

This piece is from the Spring Prodigy set...
...and this one is from the Mehendi Borders set.

I have stamped butterflies from Stempelglede's Vintage Baby and Have A Beautiful Day stamp sets onto coffee filter paper to adorn both cards.

I have also added small blue roses and larger white and pink roses along with some hydrangeas from my stash.

 I hope you like them both...

 ...and thanks for looking! x

Sweet Treats

 Good morning!  I am back with another card for Craft Heaven DT using lots of gorgeous Magnolia goodies.  I have used papers by Maja Design.
I have painted Cotton Candy Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique as always.  I have added Startdust Stickles to the candy floss and the heart on her t-shirt.
 I have used two tiers of the cake Doohickey from Volume 5 and topped it with a butterfly from the papers.
 I have used ruffle trim from my stash along with pale pink roses and ivory resin roses from Craft Heaven.
 I have used the pennant flags Doohickey from Volume 5 along the top of the card.
 The clock face and hands are from one of the recent Magnolia Pop Up boxes.  I made the little pin wheels myself but Magnolia also do a fantastic Doohickey die to make lace edged ones!  It is on my wish list!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  x

Happy Father's Day

 Good evening!  Today I have my latest card for Craft Heaven to share with you.  It was Father's Day here in the UK last weekend and this is the card I made for my dad.  I have used Maja Design's Denim Collection papers and stamps from Stempelglede, both available from Craft Heaven.
 I have used the Happy Father's Day text from Stempelglede's Have a Beautiful Day collection as the main focus of the card.
 The stamps were stamped with another Stempelglede stamp from the Postcard from Paris collection.
 The text is also from the Postcard from Paris collection.  The button was cut with a Tim Holtz die and I added some twine from my stash.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to have a go at those very tricky male cards.  I always struggle to decide what to put on them.  Thanks for looking! x

I have made orchids from coffee filter paper using the orchid Doohickey and added some gorgeous lace from Craft Heaven.  The papers are by Maja Design from the Denim  and Joyous Winter Days Collections.
I have also used the bird cage Doohickey from Volume 3 and the Bloomy Tag Doohickey.

Ninja Birthday Card

Good morning!  I have a cute boy's card to share with you today that I created for a little boy who loves Lego Ninjago.  Of course, I had to paint Ninja Edwin to match his favourite character, Kai.

I also painted Edwin's face yellow so that he looks like a Lego figure rather than a real person.  It worked pretty well I think.

The backing paper for the card is by Maja Design and then I have used lots of coloured card from my stash to create the rest of the details.  I have used the Tower Doohickey to create the Ninjago Temple.  I cut the roof part twice and snipped the point off one to use it lower down on the tower.

I used the fence Doohickey from Doohickey kit 6 and cut away the grass part to make the bridge.  I have also used the Cloud Doohickey several times to create the rocky edges around the rest of the scene.  

I used a circle punch to create the tab on the side of the card.

 Pull the tab and see what happens!

 I hope you like it and thanks for looking!
