Autumn Card


Good afternoon!  Today I'd like to share my latest card for Craft Heaven.  We are using an Autumn theme this week.  As I'm really not kean on orange colours on my cards I decided to use the reds and browns of autumn leaves together with a grey paper from Maja Design - the sky is always grey in Autumn right?!


I used the gorgeous Summer Dream Art Stamp kit but painted the flowers as though they are poppies and cornflowers - both of which are still flowering in my garden!  As always I have painted the image with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I also added some stickles to the dots around Tilda.


How cute is the bird house Doohickey?  I love it!  I have also used the stunning tree Doohickey from Volume 22.


The Autumn leaves were also cut with a Doohickey from Volume 22.  I cut them from kraft cardstock and then used Distress Inks to colour them.  The hessian style Doohickey is also from Volume 22.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the Craft Heaven blog for more inspiration from the rest of the design team!

Notebook with Fruit Salad Tilda

Hello,
 
today I want to show you a quick notebook.
You only Need some Oxide Inks, white gesso, an image and  sentiment stamps. I love to use stencils for backgrounds.
 
 
For my notebock cover I used a lot of different stamps. Here they are:
 
 
The palms, postmarks and the sentiment I embossed with white and gold. It looks so pretty.
The white splatters I made with a little bit of gesso and water. The effect is just amazing.

 
Hope you like this little notebook.
 
Have a nice weekend.
 
Susen

Ananas Tilda

Hello everyone,
 
it's a long time ago since I wrote my last post (here and on my blog).
I really hope to post more since the last months.
 
Today I start with a card by using the sweet  Ananas Tilda. Isn't she cute with her costume? I always love Tildas or Edwins in costume. They are my fav's.
I used the very pretty patterned papers from Pion Design.  The patterns are so soft and beautiful and Tina has some of them for a discounted price.
 
I coloured Tilda with my Distress Ink refillers.
The beautiful sentiment is from Stempelglede. I like their stamp sets so much. You can use them in so many different ways.
Some highlights I made with the brilliant Nuvo Drops in Bottle Green.
 
As you can see, I hide two tags behind the corrugated paper. The little Groom bow is so sweet and never used it before...I don't know why :)
 
Hope you like the card.
And take a look in Tinas shop. There are many new stuff like MFT stamps and dies (which I also love so much <3)
 

 
Have a nice weekend.

Teenage Boy's Birthday Card


Hi!  Today I'd like to share with you the birthday card I made for my son this year using the gorgeous Maja Design Denim and Friends paper collection.  These papers are great for a boy's/man's card!


I cut around the star and shoes from one of the papers and then backed the star with black card.


The 'Son' was cut with a die from my stash.  The 'It's your birthday' sentiment is from the Stempelglede Have A Beautiful Day stamp set, embossed with white Nuvo embossing powder.


I stamped a Tim Holtz ticket stamp in the corners of the star paper.


I also added some Tim Holtz film strip ribbon and washi tape.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Teacher Thank You Cards


Good morning!  I have another card to share today for Craft Heaven.  These are the thank you cards I made for my daughter to take to school.  Same design as my last post but some extra embellishments in the form of Doohickey dies.


I used a white gel pen to create the 'chalk' writing.


The cute owl and ruler are from Doohickey volume 20, Back to School.  The plasters were also cut with a Doohickey die from Maja Design paper.


The leaves were cut with the Rose Leaf Doohickey die and the seam binding is from Craft Heaven.


Altogether I made four cards, all the same design except for the extra addition of the plasters on the first one.


I hope you like them and thanks for looking!

An Apple for the Teacher


Good afternoon!  Today I'd like to share another creation for Craft Heaven.  This was a thank you card I was commissioned to make.  I love making these apple shaped cards as teacher thank you cards each year, and I love to vary them a little each time.  This year I decided to combine my blackboard thank you cards with the apple cards to make apple shaped blackboards!


I have written the thank you sentiment by hand with a white gel pen.  I tried to make it look like it had been written with chalk!  The base has been made with Kraft cardstock.


The gorgeous vintage seam binding, lace and cherry blossom are from Craft Heaven.  I cut the leaves with the Rose Leaf Doohickey die and added some twine and an apple charm from my stash.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Summer Days


Good evening!  I can't believe it has been a month since my last post!  I have been so busy lately and creating a lot of things behind the scenes which I will be showing you shortly.  Today I have a card for Craft Heaven Shop and also as a remind for our TOMIC challenge that runs all summer.  I have used the gorgeous Maja Design Summertime paper pad.  All of the papers in this collection are so beautiful it is hard to chose what to use!


I have painted Lazy Day Tilda from the Pool Party collection with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also used the postmark stamp from the With Love From Paris stamp collection at the side of the image.


The strawberries were made with Maja papers and the Magnolia Strawberry die and the flowers and lace are from Craft Heaven.


The ice-cream was also cut with a Magnolia doohickey and I've topped it with strawberries cut from one of the Maja Design papers.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
